Okay, so now is the time where people are probably whizzing around town panicking on what to buy for their siblings, partners and so on. It's only two days away until the big day and it can get pretty stressful if you've still got some presents to buy. After compiling my beauty gift guides I thought we could move on to the final gift guide featuring non-beauty, from home to fashion and other little bits and pieces. I think it's good to have a whole variety of gifts.
As it's super close to Christmas it is highly unlikely you will get anything that you order online now in time for Christmas, but just in case, I've included the links to said items in this gift guide. You can take a look at my previous beauty gift guides here and here.
A candle is a must, although it is kinda in the beauty territory. There are a lot of candle brands out there, both in the higher end and high street. One brand that is much loved by many is Yankee Candle. There is a huge range of scents and I find the Christmas candles to be the best of the bunch. You can get them in a small, medium or large jar, and you can even get some tea lights, votives or wax melts too. Two particular scents that I find screams Christmas is Christmas Cookie and Snowflake Cookie. As you can imagine they are both sweetly scented, they smell like freshly baked, sugar coated cookies. Seriously delicious. They have a great scent throw off too. You can take a look at the whole range of christmas candles here at Yankee Candle or you can even find them in your local Clinton Cards store too.
On the slightly expensive side are the Frends Layla Rose Gold Headphones. I think the headphones speak for themselves. They are so so pretty and yeah, they may be a little pricey at £140 but they're definitely worth it. I actually kinda want them myself now, haha. They are available here from Urban Outfitters or take a peek in store.
A new purse is always welcome, especially one from Kate Spade. This Glitter Bug Lacey Purse is absolutely stunning. It comes in three colours, a green, blue and Rose but I think the rose one is the best of the three. Again, this is up there in the higher end, priced at £140(currently £98 in the sale). It's a very luxurious gift so its best gifted towards someone who you know will appreciate it.
One adorable novely item that makes a great stocking filler is the Rudolph Heat Changing Mug. Whenever the mug is filled with hot water it changes Rudolphs nose from black to red. How cute is that? It's super inexpensive too, pricing at just £9.
Jewellery is a very special gift to be given on Christmas Day. It doesn't matter how much you spend though, it's the thought that counts. Rose gold is very popular at the moment and the Buckley Rose Gold Plated Stone Set Heart Necklace is seriously beautiful. It will add a lot of sparkle into anyones life. It's priced at £25 which is quite surprising as it looks like it could be worth twice that(I have one myself). Buckley has their own website and is currently stocked at H Samuel too. It's worth taking a look in H Samuel if you have a local store. You can take a look at it here on the H Samuel website too.
With it nearing the end of the year and the beginning of another, now would be the best time to start a new diary. If you know of someone that maybe needs to get themselves organised or likes to be then it's the perfect gift. There are a whole lot of lovely designs of diaries out there but the Repeat Floral Small Leather 2016 Diary is so pretty. It's available from Paperchase and costs a reasonable £12.
During these cold winter months it's always important to stay warm and toasty, and let's face it, everyone loves a good cosy pair of slippers. That's where these wonderful Suede Mules come in. They look so cosy and comfortable, however they are a little on the pricey side at £45 from Next.
Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet? Is there anything on this gift guide that's caught your eye?
