LIFESTYLE | Christmas Gift Ideas!

Ok, so we are here, it’s December, Christmas is next week and all of a sudden you are filled with dread because you were convinced you had ages of time, and now it is all gone and you haven’t bought a single present! Here are some last minute gift ideas!

Gifts for him….

Now that hubs and I are married, I am now responsible for his stocking (yes, my 26 year old husband still demands a stocking!). As this will be the first Christmas we will have without my father-in-law, I want to make this years activities as great as possible so am trying to get great presents!

His stocking always contains a novelty Christmas gift, and I thought these Christmas fridge magnets would be perfect – and can be used as decoration next year!


Booze related gift – I didn’t know you could get Jager bomb glasses, but you could also choose whiskey rocks, a personalised bottle of something or even one of those gift packs from the supermarket.

Food related gifts, I don’t know about the men you are buying for, but Hubs thinks he is a whizz in the kitchen and has recently developed an obsession with spicy condiments, honestly we could start our own spice shop, so I thought why not get him a Chilli growing kit!

Finally, this gift is another novelty/bonding gift – hubs loves dinosaurs and building things and I like baking and eating so this gives us the opportunity to make and build these together.

Presents for her…

Smellys are a go to gift for all women and Baylis and Harding have some great gift boxes available, ranging from spa packs to foot care. Guys be warned, this is not generally a present for a girlfriend, maybe more suitable for an aunt you rarely see.

 I’ve also included a Vivabox (in both for her and for him), if you haven’t heard, is a perfume box that comes with several perfume samples for the recipient to test out and a voucher, which they can redeem for a full bottle of their favorite fragrance!

Another great gift is getting a lovely case for a smartphone or tablet – great way to girly up any women’s tech, and a great surprise if you know they might be receiving one of these for Christmas – just make sure you give it to them after they’ve opened the item.

Lastly, as a whole us women are a sentimental lot – so why not buy a frame and give a great picture as a gift. A few years ago hubs framed a photo booth picture from when we first started dating and gave it to me as a gift – I was made 🙂
