Christmas gift guide

It is that time of year where Christmas is just around the corner, some may have started their Christmas shopping while others (including me) probably haven’t brought one single present. Things get hectic as people are working more hours, are constantly looking at the sales online for presents and they probably just want to sit down by the fire with a nice hot chocolate. Looking for Christmas presents for everyone starts to get a bit crazy as you realise that you have forgotten someone and have to rush around and find something last minute.

Today, I am doing my first Christmas gift guide in the hopes of helping people out and showing you all what I think is incredible this year for gifts. Most of these gifts I am familiar with and I have something for everyone!

So.. lets find some gifts for you shall we?

Sophie The Giraffe 

I got my niece this for her birthday when she started teething. This is such a good little toy for the little ones when their teeth start coming in. Sophie has a little squeaker and is perfect for biting on. It lasts very well and will probably see the baby through till they aren’t teething anymore.

Peter Rabbit Push Along 

This toy is so good for when the baby starts to walk. They are able to push along the little toy and it makes noises on the floor, or they are able to pull it along the floor. You can also unscrew the wooden handle and play with the little wooden figure.

Wooden Cube 

This little cube is so good, it is really good for the baby when they are at the stage where they are learning how to do certain things. Definitely recommended for around 1 year olds. It comes with so many different pieces and it is so good for learning shapes.

Touch and Feel Farm

These sort of books work an absolute treat. There are so many books out there on the market, but just going to use this as an example. These books allow babies to use their touch senses. Throughout the book there are things that they can lift up and touch different things. Very good and my niece loves her book, these books are endless.

Baby Art Magic Box Set 

This gift is technically for adults but I consider that it can be for babies once they are older. It is a clay set, where you can place their hands and feet in clay and maybe write their name. This is such a personalised present and one that you will cherish forever. It is such a good price for what you are getting and is always a good present to buy someone with a new born baby.


The Science Museum got in touch with me and asked if I could work this them on this Christmas gift guide. I was 100% down for it because I loved going to the science museum as a child and I don’t think many people know that they have gifts on their online stores and inside their museums.

Quentin Blake, the famous illustrator has worked with the science museum to create new art work within the museum. Quentin Blake has illustrated more than 100 children’s books and very famous for his illustrations in the Roald Dahl books such as the BFG and Matilda. When I was a child I used to read the Roald Dahl books and I remember loving the illustrations so much.

Science Museum Tote Bag – (can buy it online)

This tote bag is such a good little souvenir from the Science Museum to put any of your little bits inside. Maybe a colouring book or a sticker book. If you buy anything else from the Science Museum you can put them inside this little tote bag. It has famous faces on both sides of the bag, I really like the one about Amy Johnson. This is great for a little Christmas gift, especially if the child will love it.

Science Museum Colouring Book  (available online)

I love the colouring book, I think it is a really good little gift for children. If you know a child that loves the science museum then this colouring book is definitely for them. I think that it is really cool that you are actually able to colour in Quentin Blakes illustrations. It also comes with a little set of pencils which I think is a nice little add on to the colouring book. This will keep a child busy for a good couple of hours and also love that it is so educational.

&  Science Museum Ruler (only available in museum store)

This ruler is really well made and every child needs a ruler, especially in school as you use one every single day. Such a good little stationery gift to give to a child, especially if they are really into their stationary. The ruler goes up to 30cm which is good because I think the 15cm ones are too small.

Science Museum Sketch Book (available online)

Sketch books come in such handy and they are really good for people of all ages. If you know a child that loves drawing, so you literally cant go wrong with this gift. Even people that are studying art or a subject that requires you to sketch or draw the is also good for them. On the front it is covered in designs by Quentin Blake that were created just for this collection. There are lots of pages inside so you dont have to worry about running out of pages any time soon. This really is such a cool little present or even a stocking filler.

Quentin Blake Prints  (Available online)

I love these little prints as you can literally use them for anything. You can frame them, use them as little post cards, make your own little collages. Each print has a different person on it with something they are famous or, or something they have invented. E.G Amy Johnson who was the first female pilot to fly alone from Britain to Australia. On the each print there is a different illustration and a little caption as to who it is and what they are famous for. My dad would definitely love some of these, he is really into this sort of thing.


Real Techniques Brush Sets 

I love Real Techniques Brushes because they are so easy to get ahold of as they are in probably every Superdrug and boots and they perform amazingly well. I have been using Real Techniques brushes ever since I started doing makeup. They are so easy to wash aswell, as they don’t shed. This is something you need to look out for when looking at getting new brushes. They have such a big variety of brushes, something for everyone. You can never go wrong with new brushes and they are always needed.

Tommy Hilfiger Womens Perfume 

AHH! This perfume is one of my ultimate favourite perfumes. It is one of the only perfumes that I will spray and I can smell it on myself throughout the day, as do other people. It has such a strong sweet smell, and it just smells amazing. It is such a good price for how much you get inside and it lasts forever as a little bit goes a long way.

Lush Gift Set 

Everyone loves Lush and even if you have never been into a Lush shop you have definitely smelt it. There are such a verity of products in the shops, I patricianly love the gift sets that come out during this time of year as you get so much in the set. There literally is something for everyone and the contents inside the box always last such a long time. Bath and shower products is always a good idea for a gift as everyone loves them. AND they are cruelty free.

Whittards Hot Chocolate Gift Set 

If you have seen one of my recent posts Sticky Toffee Pudding Brownies where I baked brownies using Whittards Sticking Toffee Pudding White Hot Chocolate, you will know how obsessed I am with this hot chocolate. Their hot chocolates are so luxurious and they have such a big variety of hot chocolate flavours. Everyone loves hot chocolate so you literally can’t go wrong. AHH they are so delicious!

Pandora Rings 

Pandora rings are always a winner. If you look on their website you will see such a variety within their rings. Even though they all vary in price, they are amazing quality for such good prices. I have been wearing Pandora rings for years and they never fail me. They are such good presents to give to people because everyone loves Pandora.


Tommy Hilfiger Mens aftershave 

This aftershave is such a lovely mens aftershave. It is so popular and at such a reasonable price. It is the same as Tommy girl where once you spray it it is all you can smell for so long. It is such a good price for what you are getting and you can get different sized for different prices. It is one of those aftershaves that every man is going to love.

Ted Baker Coin Wallet 

Ted Baker is such a popular brand, especially for their wallets and purses. Their wallets are so good and near enough every male person in my family has had a ted baker wallet. They are such a reliable brand and they have such a big variety when it comes to wallets.

Wireless Touch Speaker 

Touch Speakers are so good, most of them are ok to take into the bathroom when you are having a shower or a bath. The volume is so loud, so if you know someone who loves loud music this is for you. They are so easy to use and last forever. It is so good for how much you are paying for them and literally everyone loves them. They can come in such handy, especially for like summer parties.

M&S The Tasty Tuck Box

M&S is known for their tasty food and so this is literally perfect. You have a good selection of everything, your sweet, your saver and also alcoholic beverages. It is such a good little treat to enjoy while you relax in the evenings.

Engraved Whisky Glass

Getting something personalised is always special because it means something to the person. If you know someone who loves whisky then this is for you. This personalised glass is so cute and you can personalise it however you like, also the good things with stuff being personalised it lasts forever. It is such a good price for something that is literally going to last forever.

Anything you like the look of?

    It’s really nice that you’ve included a section for kids and babies as well, I don’t see many of those. I struggle so much with the ‘for him’ section. Especially my dad! This year is the first year of my 24 that he’s actually had an answer to ‘what do you want for Christmas?’ and I can’t begin to explain how overjoyed I was that I didn’t have to think about it x
