Welcome to my Christmas Gift Guide!
It’s finally almost Christmas! Doesn’t time just absolutely fly?! I’m so excited for Christmas this year – last year was a hard one due to my mental health, but things have improved so much after the last year, it’s good to finally enjoy it.
Christmas Gift Guide posts are my favourite to read over the Christmas period – and I wanted to get this out there so that you have time to use the inspiration or make some purchases, if you wanted to. My goal was to ensure that there is something for everybody, at all price points, so I really hope you enjoy this post!
Presents for Her
The Benecos Winter Dream Gift Set* (£10.95) is a wonderful gift set option for those who ‘don’t need anything’. Their products are all vegan. This set in particular contains a shower gel, body lotion and lip balm. I’d actually suggest this for a younger audience and students, as it means they’ll be stocked up on toiletries for a while!
Featuring some items from a fellow blogger, Fiona Likes to Blog runs an Etsy Shop featuring a range of mental health and wellness items. Her zines are absolutely fantastic, and you can actually pick up a Double Pack of her ‘You Got This’ zines* for only £10! I like to keep mine in my office desk at work, and they can be fantastic pick-me-ups.
Stationery is always a wonderful choice and I’m loving the Holographic ‘No Memories of Last Night’ notebook and the pencil pack. I can’t actually find them on the website, but I think there are so many gorgeous stationery pieces out there to inspire you, even if these exact ones aren’t available! At risk of sounding too ‘cheap’ (although I prefer to think of it as budget friendly), Poundland and Wilko also offer some gorgeous stationery at really affordable prices. Who can ever have enough notebooks?
These prints were just two of the many prints that I was sent from Smart Arts Gallery – how cute are they! The Pre Wash Print* (£12) and the I love you so much print* (£12) are two options created by Rupert Fawcett. My favourite is the ‘I love you so much’ print – I just know that my brother will love this as my cat, Ruby, always follows him around when she wants a treat!
For a more purse friendly option, this Star Mug and Hot Chocolate Set costs £3.99 from B&M bargains – isn’t it absolutely stunning! If you cannot already tell from my blog, I think stars are gorgeous and so trendy at the moment.
An alternative buy for the fashion conscious is these Fold Up Ballet Flats from Cocorose London! This style specifically is the Barbican Leopard Print Ballerina* (£45), though there are a range of other gorgeous patterns and styles on their website. I am in love with their loafers! What makes these shoes so great is that they are elasticated, incredible comfortable and also fold up into a pouch bag, making them perfect for on the go, travelling and Christmas parties!
‘Life is what you bake it‘* (£12) and ‘When life gives you lemons, made a G&T’* (£12) are another two offerings from Smart Arts Gallery. I think we all know somebody whom these will be just perfect for!

Presents for Him
Smart Arts Gallery offer a variety of prints for men too; I just know that my Dad will love the Shaun of the Dead ‘Record Breaking’* (£12) option! Some other well loved prints include the Jurassic Park ‘Look’ print* (£18) and the Jaws Tooth print* (£18).
Pewdiepie’s book, ‘This Book Loves You’ (£9.19) is a great book for the younger people in your life. Even at the age of 22, I absolutely love it! It’s essentially a mimicry of mindfulness books, though it is so funny – you can’t help but love it! It’s so lighthearted that I’m sure that everybody will love flicking through it. The Pixel Glasses (£1) were actually from Poundland, and I just know that my brother will adore them.
The Sonic the Hedgehog Collectible Coin* (£12) is easily my favourite gift on this guide though – how amazing?! I’ve been a huge fan of Sonic the Hedgehog for years, and knowing that there is only 5,000 of these in the world is incredible. The Stormtrooper Coin* (£12) is another good option for those who love Star Wars!
This set of Back to the Future inspired playing cards* (£9) is an amazing gift for those who are a fan of the film. They will be perfect for taking on holiday!
Additionally, Benecos offer a Men’s Care Gift Set* (£11.90) which is the perfect gift for those who you’re not sure what to get. Consisting of a 3 in 1 Body Wash for face, hair and body, and a 2 in 1 After Shave Balm, it’s a fantastic choice – especially as it’s vegan!
