A Cosy Gift Guide For Home.Friday, December 18, 2015
Christmas is a week today! Cor blimey eh? If you're still not all finished with your chritsmas shopping, you still have a week (well kind of) so there's still plenty of time... promise. Today in one of my last gift guides for the year is a homeware/lifestyle one. Like most twenty something old girls, I do love a candle and I may have a few to give out this year, because you can never have too many candles. Promise.
Here are a few ideas for some home bunnies, maybe people who aren't overly bothered about beauty, or fashion, or you just don't know what to buy!
Candles: like I said candles are so easy to buy and well if you're anything like me, you're always chuffed to receive one! I am a big fan of Yankee Candles, as well as these amazing budget ones from Clintons which trust me are SO scented and last week were 2 for £7.99- what an absolute barg! Or another nice present, is a wax melt burner- my Mum got us one as a moving in present and I'm obsessed! We burn the Yankee Candle melts on it, and you would not believe how long they last for. I am officially starting to sound 60 now but seriously, I am impressed. We also kindly received some Christmas tarts as a present, which smell amazing! I will be burning the likes of Christmas Eve on you guessed it; Christmas Eve. But it's a lovely present for someone. We've also been burning this La Montana candle recently, which is a little bit different and a bit more pricey but smells so Christmassy and fresh. Might be a good one for parents.
Places like H&M Home (check your delivery dates) Home Bargains, Wilkos and Primark have pretty yet affordable candle holders and decorations right now.
DVD's: Know someone who defo prefers staying in than going out? Then why not get them some dvd's or a boxset. Even with things such as Netflix, they sometimes don't have all the seasons of programmes so it could be worth picking up a box set if you know someone loves a certain show. I adore my Gossip Girl and Friends Boxset, Try places like HMV, Amazon and CEX for box sets.
Mugs: Know someone who is a big hot drinker? Try places like Anthropologie, Etsy and Cath Kidston for cute mugs. Also if you have a Homesense near you, check out their glasses as they have really cool glasses/bar ware for really cheap prices.
Relaxing: Things like pjs, blankets, slippers, and pillow spray are great for people who deserve a bit of me time. Primark have an amazing array of blankets right now, I'm obsessed with our grey fleecy ones which were just £5, they're such a lovely present for snuggling up on the sofa with. Or if you know someone who finds it hard to relax why not treat them with things such as pillow spray such as this one from This Works, which helps you to fall into a peaceful sleep.
Other things you could buy are; books, kindle vouchers, vouchers for take aways & kitchen stuff.
I'm also going to be doing a final gift guide tomorrow which will feature DIY affordable gifts so keep your eyes peeled for that one! What would be your ideal gift for the home?
