Christmas Gift Ideas for Her

Luxury Fragrance Gifts for Her

If you're looking for a special gift for your mum, girlfriend, sister or best friend, a bottle of their favourite perfume is sure to put a smile on their face. For me, it's Flowerbomb by Viktor and Rolf. I love everything about it, from it's unique bottle shape to it's sweet floral fragrance. It's a scent that intensifies on the skin and lasts all day.

Of course, it helps if you know what perfume they like or at least the notes they favour. Shop around for the best prices and remember that in the run up to Christmas, there's usually a lot of offers on fragrances.
If you're struggling to find a perfume you think they'll like, perhaps go down the route of buying a luxury candle instead. Some of my favourite home fragrances are by Sanctuary Spa. They have so many lovely products including individual candles, diffusers and room mists, as well as home fragrance sets, perfect for festive gifting.

Something a Little Different for Her

Those looking for a slightly more unusual gift this Christmas may want to take a look at the gorgeous range of printed towels by Australian brand Tesalate. These lightweight towels are ultra-absorbent, quick drying and sand-resistant - perfect for beach use in the summer! They come in a range of vibrant patterns, including the bold and bright Bohemian print*, shown above and cost £49, with free worldwide delivery. Sure, a beach towel seems a slightly unusual Christmas present but it's certainly unique and unlikely anyone else will buy the same. A perfect gift for a lady who loves to travel!

Stocking Fillers for Her

These days it's not hard to find lovely stocking filler gifts and secret Santa presents for her but if you're having a bit of a mind blank, I recommend taking a look at New Look's beautiful range of mugs, cups and glasses. They have so many high-end looking products at bargain prices. The M initial mug above costs just £5.99 but looks much more expensive! Here are a few more favourites mug and glass giftware from the New Look site...
Tile Print Mug £6.99 // Speckled Mug £6.99 // Adventure Mug £6.99 // Party Time Decanter £3.99

Book Gifts for Mum

The Unmumsy Mum Diary by Sarah Turner // Why Mummy Swears by Gill Sims // The Unmumsy Mum by Sarah Turner, 
Whether you're looking for a gift for your own mum or a new mummy friend, 'mum books' are bound to give them a giggle. I adore The Unmumsy Mum and think her writing style is just brilliant. Her books are so relatable to parents, full of honest truths about parenting and hilarious family tales. They've honestly made me cry with laughter and they'll definitely be something I gift to my friends when they become mothers too!

I hope this little gift guide has given you some inspiration if you are looking for Christmas Gift Ideas for Her.

5 Stocking Filler Gifts for Young Kids (that aren't toys!)

Christmas gift guides for kids often feature a variety of toys, from the latest craze to traditional wooden offerings and whilst I'm all for buying toys at Christmas, I think it's possible to have too many! So if you're looking for stocking fillers for young kids that aren't toys but still have an element of fun to them, take a look at my ideas below...

1. Fun Cake Moulds for Kids

If you know a little one that loves baking, fun cake moulds like these lego-themed ones will go down a treat! I bought the Lego Man Cake Mould on eBay for just £5.99 and the Mini Lego Bricks baking moulds (which could be used for sugar paste, fondant icing, chocolate or fudge) for £2.99 on Amazon. 

2. Beautiful Woodland & Garden Bird Stickers

For children that love animals, birds and crafting, these beautiful woodland and garden bird vinyl stickers from Particle Press* (£5.50 per pack) will make such a lovely stocking filler. The detailed designs are so pretty and Arthur's little face lit up when I showed them to him. They can be stuck on anything you like and are easy to unstick and re-stick if you wish to move them. 

3. Personalised Christmas Bauble

If you are after a pre-Christmas gift or something to finish off your child's Christmas Eve box (if that's something you do) then why not pick up one of these beautiful personalised baubles from the Handmade Christmas Co.* The personalised baubles are available in a number of different designs and cost £15.00. Your bauble will arrive in a cardboard presentation box and is sure to be something your little one treasures for many Christmas Days to come.

4. Crazy Soap for Bath Time

Make bath time a little more exciting for children with this fantastic bath foam by Crazy Soap (£2.00)! The bath foam, which is available in blue, pink and white, can be moulded into whatever your child wishes. Let their imaginations run wild and encourage sensory play at bath time. The soap has a gentle formula and simply melts into the bath water once playtime is over. 

5. Personalised Children's Books

Books will always make fantastic stocking filler gifts for children but if you're looking for one with an extra special touch, why not pick up a personalised story from the likes of Wonderbly and Penwizard? Wonderbly has a range of beautifully illustrated stories, each of which can be tailored to your child in some way and are targeted at children age 0-4 and 4-8. One of Arthur's favourites is 'A Letter for the Littlest Bear', (£19.99) which I bought him last Christmas. The story is not only customised with Arthur's name but those of his family members and even features a personalised letter at the end.

Penwizard also has a fantastic range of personalised books for children*. If your child enjoys watching shows such as Paw Patrol and Blaze and the Monster Machines on Nickleodeon, then they're bound to love these books, which insert them right into the heart of their favourite stories.

We Moved House!

Collaborative content. 
I'm back after nearly a month away from my blog and I have to say, I've really missed creating content for this little place! But as anyone who's moved house will know, it can be pretty all-consuming. Between packing up and cleaning the last property we were in and unpacking boxes, cleaning and making our new house a home, it's been pretty hectic!
I say 'new house' but actually the barn we've moved to is o-l-d! So old. And whilst I was initially worried we were going to be overrun by spiders or unable to cook a meal on the Rayburn, now that we're a little more settled, I can really appreciate it's beauty. Sure it's not perfect and hey, we won't be here forever (Josh, Arthur and I still have plans for our own place) but it's home for now and I truly love it.
The thing that made us fall in love with this house wasn't actually the barn itself but the outdoor space that we get with it. As well as a lovely garden, it has a small paddock, which is amazing! At the moment it's pretty overgrown and my dad and Josh have already started sorting it out but once it's done it'll be lovely for everyone - especially Arthur. If we stick a little Play Bark down around his new swing, slide and trampoline it'll look like he has his own park, which he'll love! The paddock is great for walking our dog, Oby, in too. I'll definitely share some pictures once it's finished but as you can see, at the moment it's a little on the wild side!
Speaking of wild (and wonderful), our gorgeous Arthur Daniel turned three at the end of the month and we had such a lovely celebration in our new home. We kept it simple, with good food and family time and it was everything I hoped it'd be for him. He was truly spoilt with lots of lovely gifts, including things for his new garden and the smile on his face said it all! Arthur was one very happy little boy.

Moving house isn't easy and rarely goes to plan but we're in, we're getting settled and we've already made some lovely memories. Here's to many more and the next chapter!
