Reflecting on 2017

Reflecting on 2017

It's that time again where we all get a bit reflective as the year draws to a close, and rightly so! What better time to look back at your achievements to see how far you've come, and your "not so great" moments so you can learn from them and then lock them away in a box in your mind marked DO NOT TOUCH!

For me, I can happily say that 2017 has been my best year yet. Hands down. No competition.

Last-Minute Stocking Fillers

Last-Minute Stocking Fillers

In our heads, by now we would like to have all presents wrapped and under a perfectly decorated tree, with the house clean, and you're plopped on the sofa guzzling mulled wine watching Elf. 

In reality? 

You're frantically running around like a headless chicken trying to buy all your presents on Christmas Eve. Sound familiar?

I've been in both situations over the years, and however much you'd like to be all organised in plenty of time, life gets in the way and next thing you know it's Christmas on Monday and you've done nothing.

Thanks to the wonder of next day delivery, you can rest easy for a little while longer, so if you're clueless about what last-minute stocking fillers to get your friends and family this Christmas, I've come up with a little selection for you to browse through.

Christmas Gift Guide for the Men Who Are Hard To Buy For

Christmas Gift Guide for the Men Who Are Hard To Buy For

It's crazy to think this is my last group gift guide! There will be one more after this about stocking fillers and last-minute presents that will be going up at the end of this week, but this is the final one for a specific category member! It's strange to think that a week ago I was sat surrounded by products trying to figure out how the hell I was going to put this all together.

But I have, and I've loved every minute! I'm also pretty impressed that I've been able to produce 4 blog posts in the space of less than a week when normally I struggle to post once a week at the most. 

Make sure you're all caught up with my other gift guides for friends and sisters, grandmas and mothers-in-lawmums and last-minute stocking fillers.

For me, men have always been really hard to buy for. I've grown up surrounded by picky men, which makes buying them gifts for birthdays or Christmas a right nightmare! This has meant though that I've slowly learned what works and what doesn't when it comes to presents. 

Take a scroll down and see if you pick up any gift ideas for those men in your life that are hard to buy for.

Christmas Gift Guide For Mums + Giveaway

next mistletoe jumper

Happy Monday everyone! It's been so exciting sharing these gift guides with you, and I hope you've been enjoying them as much as it was to put them together. If you've not caught up with my other gift guides, do take a look! There's one for friends and sisters (with a giveaway too)one for grandmas and mother in lawsone for men who are hard to buy for and one for last minute stocking fillers.

This time, we're focussing on gifts for the main ladies in our lives- our mums. My mum is one of my favourite people to buy for as I love spoiling her rotten after all the things she's done for me.

Normally with mums, you might know their taste pretty well, but sometimes it's quite hard to think of new gift ideas if you've been buying gifts for them for a long time. It can be really easy to end up repeating a gift without even realising.

So here are some Christmas gift ideas for mums that you might want to treat them to, and drumroll please...there's another giveaway! Be sure to enter after you've read this post.

Christmas Gift Guide For Grandmas and Mother in Laws

Christmas Gift Guide For Grandmas and Mother in Laws

Welcome back to my second Christmas gift guide! If you missed my first one on gifts for friends and sisters, you can take a look at it here. There's also one on mums too with a little giveaway at the end, as well as one for the men in your life that are hard to buy for and last-minute stocking fillers.

This guide is focussing on grandmas and mother in-laws! This group is more likely to have sophisticated traditional tastes and can sometimes be very particular in what they like! If you know their taste, go in the direction of homeware and beauty products in their favourite scents.

There are loads of products on the market at the moment that look really luxe for an affordable price, as well as gift sets that contain loads of products for half the price they normally would be.

So if you're looking for some ideas for your grandmas and mother in-laws that you may not have thought of, keep reading!

Christmas Gift Guide For Friends and Sisters + Giveaway!

Christmas Gift Guide For Friends and Sisters, beauty products and pyjamas

It's that time again where you start pulling your hair out trying to think of what presents to buy your friends and family. 

You end up scouring site after site and battling the crowds in shopping centres sometimes without having a real idea of what you're looking for. That may be because the people you need to get presents for are really difficult to buy for.

I've had quite a bit of experience with buying for picky people, so throughout the year if I come across any present ideas suitable for someone I'll pop them in my note section ready for this time of year. 

I've got 5 gift guides for different categories of your friends and family coming to you this December: friends and sisters, grandmas and mother-in-laws, mums, men that are hard to buy for, and last-minute stocking fillers

So if you're struggling with gift ideas for your family and friends, I hope these might help point you in the right direction this Christmas. Plus there's a little giveaway waiting at the end of this post for you!
