Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide

20/12/2017

With Christmas right around the corner, now is the time to get serious about ticking the last few things off your Christmas gift list. The final few items can be difficult to buy because you have usually pushed the cousin you barely know or the uncle that is notoriously hard to buy for, right to the bottom of the list. We all do it, every year and no matter how many times we tell ourselves that we will be more organised next year, we find ourselves stressed until the last second every time. So I figured I would lend a hand a little bit and suggest some things that always creep up on my last minute Christmas present shopping list.

You can never ever go wrong with body and face products and gift sets. I have chosen to show off my Alex Carro products because they are a great gift for men of any age. I struggle a lot when picking out products for guys and Alex Carro does it so well. The minimalist packaging is simple and effective and makes a change from all the floral and swirly letters that you find on most packaging, making them a complete no-no for all the guys. The face oil is fantastic to even out the natural oils on your skin and the face cleanser is perfect to use in the evenings so you can go to sleep with a fresh face! They smell fruitful and fresh which is also perfectly suited for lots of males out there! All in all, Alex Carro’s products and also their Christmas gift sets are the perfect present for everyone!

The next couple of items are two books that I received as an early Christmas present this year and they make the perfect little gift. Firstly the little black book, which is basically a guide for every working woman, whether they are freelancing in the creative industry, or need a little guidance with their career, this book is perfect. It is pocket-sized and the level of information is kept concise and direct. I have already learnt a whole lot and I am yet to delve in deeply. I always love receiving gifts that I can actually do something with and I really feel that this book can help me in many ways 🙂

Next we have the incredible Little Book of Hygge. I love anything and everything to do with Hygee and feel as if I can never have enough of it. This is the perfect gift for anyone who loves to sip hot chocolate in front of the fireplace, whilst wearing a pair of warm fuzzy socks. The thing that makes this book stand out from the rest of Hygge related books, is its design. The animations and little pictures and photographs that accompany the pages are beautiful, minimal and really sum up what Hygge is all about. Hygge Hygge Hygge. I cannot get enough.

The last item on my last minute Christmas gift guide is anything smelly. The good kind of smelly, of course!!! I always love receiving candles and diffusers as they compliment the Hygge (here we go again) of my space and they make the perfect gift for any home-lover. My personal favourite is the Wild Fig and Grape scent that I received as a gift a few months back. The best bit about diffusers is you don’t need to worry about them really, they will happily sit on the shelf for months and give off a subtle aroma. It really does make a house a home.

So there are a few ideas to help you finish off your gifting for this year. I hope you all have a lovely Christmas!!
