2018 CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE

It’s not long to go now until the big day! Christmas is my favourite time of year and I love spoiling my friends and family but finding the perfect gift is never easy. I’ve rounded up some of my Christmas gift ideas for him & her.

THE FRAGRANCE SHOP

You can’t go wrong with the gift of fragrance at Christmas. The Fragrance Shop have a huge selection of gifts perfect for your loved ones. The Scent Addict is a travel size atomiser filled with a 30 day supply of your chosen fragrance. You can choose from over 50 different brands such as YSL, Diesel and Armani for only £12 a month.  It then gets delivered straight to your door which is so convenient. Perfect for any fragrance lover who loves to discover new scents.

FAT FACE 

Fat Face have a great selection of Christmas gifts for all the family. The knitwear is such great quality, below I have featured two cashmere blend jumpers. For women there is the Sophie Textured Block Jumper £45 and for Men the Chichester Crew Neck Jumper £55.

They also have so many good stocking fillers, these would be great for Secret Santa presents too. From the eye mask and pillow mist gift set (£15) to the scented candle gift set (£15) there is loads to choose from.

BOLIN WEBB

Bolin Webb are a luxury grooming brand who do some really cool and unique grooming products. I have picked out the R1 Mach3 razor it comes in many different colours but I went for Red as it is one of my favourite colours. The one I chose is £55 but they can go up to £350 use this link to check out their selection. Bolin Webb

The razors are sleek and inspired by the flawless paintwork and finish of a classic British car. All men have a razor in their wash bag so why not make it a special one. You can also add accessoires too, the stand is £30 and for his travels add a travel case for £25.

SACHAJUAN

Why not give the gift of great hair! Sachajuan are a Swedish brand that create salon quality products to use at home. I have been using their products for a while now and I absolutely love them. They have some great gift sets for Christmas and there is one for every hair type, perfect for both male and female. The gift set contains 3 full size products and come in a nice wash bag. They are priced at £65.

PHILLIPS

I find that Christmas is the perfect time of the year to give electrical goods. You ask for the things you want as well as things you need. First up is the Phillips Sonicare rechargeable electric toothbrush (£60). It has so many good functions like the smart timer which gives you the 2 minutes brushing time recommended by dentists. The battery lasts up to 2 weeks and it removes up to x7 more plaque vs. a manual toothbrush.

For her there is the SatinShave Essential Electric shaver. It is cordless and can be used both wet and dry. It is rechargeable with 1 hour usage time and has a battery indicator when its low or fully charged. It is priced at £54.

AMERICAN CREW 

American Crew is one my favourite brands I use when it comes to styling my hair. They have such a good selection of products that enable you to style your hair in different ways. Everyone loves a nice gift set on Christmas day and this limited edition forming cream duo set is perfect. Most men struggle using so many different products so the 3-IN-1 shampoo, conditioner and body wash is quick and easy to use. The forming cream works well for all types of hair and gives you a medium hold with a slight shine. It also makes the hair look thicker which most men want. You can pick this up for around £20.

INSTAX MINI

The Instax cameras make such a good gift! I find it is something you wouldn’t necessarily buy yourself however you would use it alot. It’s always great fun taking instant pictures and looking back on memories. If you’re running out of gift ideas I would definitely recommend one of these. They are priced at £64.99 and you can buy lots of different films and accessories for them.

REN SKINCARE

Luxury beauty gift sets always make the perfect present, who doesn’t love self care?! REN skincare are a natural clean beauty brand and most of their products are vegan.  This is the ‘LOVE’ gift set which includes two products from the brand’s Moroccan Rose bath and body range made from 100% natural rose oil. The set comes in a limited edition gift box designed in collaboration with Kikki K.

THE EVERYDAY MAN

Heinrich Barth

The N. 07 Mykonos body cleanser is infused with a blend of fig leaves and sage extracts which smells like summer. The shampoo and conditioners are suitable for all hair types and leaves hair looking super shiny and healthy. All of the products are paraben free with no artificial colourings. This travel set is ideal when on the move and comes in a well presented white gift box. I love the simplicity of the packaging, it gives it that luxurious feel. This is a great gift set for any hair or beauty lover.

UP ROAR

Is a UK men’s eco-friendly grooming and skin care brand which focuses on all natural ingredients. You can pick up the 50ml Aluminium-free deodorant for £8.50 and this product has so many benefits. The deodorant is made from 100% natural ingredients & it’s aluminium free (hence the name). It is non staining and residue free which is a big plus as I find most deodorants end up staining some of my T shirts. This product is also great if you love to travel like me as the volume is under the allowance for carry-on. So far so good using this product.

Below The Belt

A British body and skin care brand coming up with something a little different. Me personally, I have never seen a product like this that targets the groin area. I play a lot of sport and go to the gym regularly so these products are great to help keep you feel fresh all day. Their products are vegan and cruelty free and range from £4.50 – £12. You can pick up a box set which could be a good Christmas stocking filler.

Fudge Urban

With very bright packaging it is hard to miss this brand in the shops! You can purchase these products from Boots priced from around £7. I have naturally curly hair and sometimes like to change my look up and go for something more textured. The sea salt spray is great as you can spray it into wet hair and let it dry naturally, so it’s quick and easy to use.

The Brighton Beard Company 

This brand is pretty close to home for me, I used to spend a lot of time down in Brighton and they manufacture all their products there. They have a wide selection of beard grooming products from oils, balms and waxes.

 I think today more and more men are grooming their beards with all different styles so it is great to have a variety of products. The packaging is great and looks really premium,  and the products all smell amazing!! They have had loads of coverage online including being featured in GQ and I can see why.  In this gift set you get a beard balm, beard oil and beard shampoo for £45. Use BrightonBeard15 to get 15% off!
