Christmas Gift Edit 2023

This is my third year of putting together a Christmas gift guide. It features items I have personally used or bought for friends and family. I carry on doing these edits because I often get asked for ideas and suggestions and so I hope this serves as some inspiration if you need it. There are a few products that feature every year because they are just too good to miss out.



Yoga for Stiff Birds by Marion Deuchars

Just loved the title of this book and actually it's really useful. Simple pose and flow suggestions with illustrations.

Hardback £8.28



Space NK Winter Pine

Smells like you're in the middle of a snow carpeted forest (pine, eucalyptus and rosemary).

£16.00 - 26.00


Make up - Personalised

*Featured the last two years*

Donna May London Vegan Lay Flat Make up Bag 

Can be personalised with name initial and good choice of colours to choose from. A brilliant way to view all of your make up at the same time.

There are also a selection of lower priced fabric versions too



Make up

Victoria Beckham Satin Kajal Liner

The best eye pencil I've used. Lots of great colours, soft and really workable, stays put and has a very useful smudger on the other end of the pencil to create a smokey eye effect. Oh yes, and it comes with its own sharpener.




Beastie Boys Book

No 1 New York Times Bestseller. It tells the story of the Beastie Boys. Nostalgic.

Hardback £27.69



Charlotte Tilbury Magic Lip Oil

The best lip oil I have tried. It doesn't feel greasy on the lips and is effective at moisturising and creating a protective barrier for the lips. I use it like a lip mask before bed. Feels luxurious and super effective.




Laboratorio Olfattivo Fragrance Diffusers

These last for months and have continue to smell throughout that time. My favourite is Incensamente.




Membership to a museum i.e. The Victoria & Albert Museum

There are so many incredible exhibitions here with access to the members cafe too.

£77.00 or £112.00




The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

The most enjoyable fictional story I have read this year! Hollywood glamour, scandal, true love and a massive twist that might leave you in tears.

Paperback £5.00



Monica Vinader

Beautiful necklaces, rings, earrings, bracelets and more.

From around £25



*Featured the last two years*

L'Occitane Intensive Hand Balm

The best hand balm in the world (again, in my opinion) for very dry skin. L'Occitane also offer a hand cream in the same range which is another great choice. They come in a variety of sizes too.

£9.00 to £26.50



Hush PJs

Lots of beautiful cozy designs.

From around £30 upwards (these are £65)



My Hygge Home - How to make home your happy place by Meik Wiking

I've enjoyed several of Meik's books and this is no exception. Tips on ways to make your home a happy place to be. Based on new research from the Happiness Institute in Copenhagen.




*Featured for the last two years*

Hotel Chocolat Velvetiser

The best hot chocolate you can make in your own kitchen. Lots of different flavours available including alcoholic additions.




Where's Bowie

Search for Bowie in different locations like Studio 54, space etc. Like Where's Wally, but Bowie.




*Featured last year*

Neom Wellbeing Pod Essential Oil Diffuser

I absolutely love this pod, it's so effective at fragrancing a room plus it looks really stylish £95.00

There are several starter packs which include a variety of essential oils too

Mini Pod available from £50




Walk Yourself Happy by Julia Bradbury

How walking can improve your life, looking at the link between our own health (both physical and mental) and nature.




Elf Monopoly

Who doesn't love a game of Monopoly? Combine this with the epic Christmas film Elf!



Make up

Charlotte Tilburys Hollywood Flawless Filter

An incredible product which can instantly give your skin an instant glow. I wouldn't be without it. There are lots of different shades to choose from.




*Featured last year*

Lindt Milk Chocolate Santa, mini santas, mini teddy bears etc. The mini santas and bears come in packs of five and can be split up and given to different recipients. Cute stocking fillers.

£1.50 - £3.00



Rest to Reset by Suzy Reading

The busy person's guide to pausing with purpose. Most of us don't feel comfortable with intentionally resting. This is a great read which gives you permission to do so.

Hardback £19.31


Personal Care

Donna May Perfume Atomiser

The perfect way to carry your favourite perfume in your bag. Simply decant your fragrance into this compact atomiser in the most simple way. Great stocking filler.




If a puzzle isn't a great way to slow down and pause I don't know what is. I'm not a puzzle connoisseur, a 500 piece is good for me.

Lots of choice on amazon.




Diptyque Oranger candle

Subtly smells like Christmas wintery spices. Burns beautifully and smells as good at the bottom as it does at the top of the candle.




*Featured last year*

Extraordinary Women in History

Remarkable women who made a difference, inspired and broke barriers.




The Science of Nutrition - Rhiannon Lambert

A really informative and easy to read book about nourishing your body.



Merry Christmas from me to you and my very best wishes for 2024 x
