£15.99

The letter box cakes are a perfect treat for anyone that loves cake. You can by from a variety of designs and personalise them how you wish. You can also chose the flavour and they offer a dairy or gluten free option which is great for anyone with an intolerance to certain ingredients.

I think these are amazing! They really do look like real sprouts. They would be the perfect stocking filler and they are made from delicious white Belgian chocolate, mmmm.

Choconchoc – Chocolate Mini Reindeer

Another great chocolate gift is the mini reindeer. I personally love Choconchoc products as they are so yummy and taste like really expensive posh chocolate but at a really reasonable price!

HOMEWARE

Amphora Aromatics – Lavender oil candle

£9.50

Lavender is one of my favourite scents and this candle smells so so good. It burns for 40 hours which is ages if you only light it an our so a day 🙂 I like to light a candle for half an hour – an hour before going up to bed to make the bedroom smell nice and as this is lavender it can help with drifting off to sleep easier!

Amphora Aromatics – Mandarin Lime and Basil reed diffuser

£13.50

Another great product is this reed diffusers. These are great to slowly let a scent into a room. I like to have one in our living room as that’s the first room you walk into. This one is great as it is not too overpowering but it still makes the room smell great. I think ti is a reasonable price too.

Aequill – Juniper Berry & Cedarwood scented candle

Regular £24

Travel £14.50

Another great candle is this one by Aequill. I have been burning this one of an evening in front of the fire and it smells so good and I feel so cosy with this scent and the fire on. You only have to burn it for a short amount of time and the room/house smells so good. I prefer high quality candles that you don’t need to burn for long.

Little Hungarian hearts – embroidered decoration

£4

This cute little heart is a great decoration for Christmas, or any other time of the year if you like hearts! You can pick from various designs and they are all handmade. I can’t wait to get my tree up so I can put this on it!

£19.99

This game will be great to play over Christmas when all the family are together.  It is based on Jane Austin characters and you have to play matchmaker to find them a suitable partner.

NAILS

Pink Gellac – starter kit

£49.99

I think this is a great price for a gel starter kit, and it includes one colour. A lot of kits are over double this price. It is so easy to get a salon quality manicure at home if you can gel your own nails.

The Starter kit Contains:
1 x Primer 15ml 
1 x Dynamic Pink 156
4 x Free online courses
1 x Pink Gellac LED Lamp
1 x Pink Gellac Base2 
1 x Pink Gellac Ultra Shine 15ml 
10 x Cleaner Pockets
1 x Nail file 240-180 grid 
1 x Orange Woodsticks
10 x Remover pockets 

It really does include everything you would need and it is so easy to use.

Pink Gellac – polish

£10

Following on from the set above, you can buy additional gel colours and they have a massive range to pick from. You could pick a glitter that would go perfect over the top of another shade ie the pick that came with the set, or you could just have one glitter accent nail. They have so may to choose, you could always buy a couple of additional colours if you were buying the set for someone or even if you wanted to learn yourself you could ask for it!

CND Vinylux – New Years’ Nails set

£31.95

This set includes two shades along with a top coat. I have found CND are very high quality products and they last so long without chipping! They advertise as lasting a week but I think it can definitely last longer. Both shades are very metallic/sparkly for the party season.

FACE/BODYCARE

Crabtree & Evelyn – La Source body duo

£31

La Source is one of the most popular ranges from Crabtree and Evelyn and this set contains the body wash and body lotion. This is ideal for anyone that loves to pamper themselves and I love that they are packaged together nicely. The body wash is super refreshing and the body lotion really soaks in, leaving you really soft and hydrated.

DHC – Double cleanse set

£19.95

You will have seen me mention DHC before on my blog and I love love love their skincare. This set contains: deep cleansing oil, mild soap and olive virgin oil swabs.

I am a big fan of the iconic deep cleansing oil and I think this set is great to try this and the soap, plus you get the free swabs.

Skincare is important to me and a lot of people would be grateful to try this brand I am sure.

Ingenious beauty capsules

£75

These capsules are clinically proven to reduce fine lines by 26% and can be used for:

Smoother and firmer skin

Stronger nails

Thicker hair

Improvement in your body’s overall vitality

I think these are great for anyone that wants to look better as we all know your hair is skin is affected by what you put in your body as much as what you put on it. Collagen is great for your skin as well as your hair and nails. I think it is great you can buy something to help you from within. I know a lot of people that would love to try something like this!

Mad Beauty – Slush Puppie shower gel and sponge set

£5.99

Another great product from the Mad Beauty/Slush Puppie range is this shower gel and sponge set. The sponge is so cute with the logo and teamed with a refreshing shower gel it will make bath time a lot more fun.

Percy Nobleman – Face and stubble care kit

£24.99

This is great whether you have a beard or not. It is important that men remember to take care of their face whether they clean shave everyday or have a beard they are proud of. This is a great set that includes: face and stubble wash, face and stubble moisturiser and a face towel. Their products are great quality and my husband has used them before and is a massive fan.

Percy Nobleman – Signature fragrance

Price depends on size

Another great product from Percy Noblemen is their signature fragrance. You can buy this is a variety of sizes and even a sample if you want to try it before committing to a larger one. It smells quite fruity to start with but then you can really smell the musk. It is a great product to use after your face care regime especially if you are using their other products as the scents compliment each other so well.

XO Balm

£12.50

The XO balm is a great multi purpose balm, the kind you can chuck into your handbag and it will come in handy so much. You can use it on your face or body to moisturise or even use it on your hair to tame flyaways. I really like using it on my cuticles and to moisturise my dry elbows.

Mad Beauty – Minnie headband

£4.99

This headband from the Mad Beauty Minnie collection is so cute. It is great to put on when you want your hair out of your face, so to wash your face or to put on when you apply make up. It is very cute and perfect for any Disney fan.

Mad Beauty – Minnie face mask

£3.50

Another great Minnie product is this sheet mask. Sheet masks are very popular at the moment and who wouldn’t want to look like Minnie whilst relaxing and having their face mask work its magic?!
