Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide

Friday, 4 December 2015

As an avid shopper, Christmas shopping is one of my favourite festive activities—so much so, in fact, that I prefer buying presents to receiving them! It fills my heart with joy to find the perfect present, and the amazing reaction in return is better than any gift that anyone could give to me. If you're struggling on your holiday hunt, I've put together a little guide of which shops holds the best category of presents. I hope this helps!

Paperchase—for Christmas cards and Christmas gift wrapping
My heart belongs to Paperchase at this time of the year. They offer the perfect combination of cute and graceful Christmas cards, and also sell the best wrapping paper around. Want a cute bag shaped like a penguin or a gingerbread man to hide away all of your presents? Paperchase is your best pal.

Whittard—for hot drink lovers
Another one of my favourite places at Christmas time, purely because of the glorious scent that greets you as you walk through the door. Wanting a hot chocolate gift set? On the hunt for a gift for a coffee lover? Searching out the perfect Christmas tea, full of festive flavours? Whittard has your back!

Fat Face—for fluffy slippers and pyjamas galore
I may be a little bit bias here, but they honestly do some of the best festive nightwear on the market. Whether it's their penguin inspired pyjama bottoms, their winter birds lounge pants, their pom pom slippers, or their endlessly fluffy socks, Fat Face have everything that you would need to keep warm this winter!

The White Companyfor the perfect festive scents
For my 21st birthday, Meg kindly treated me to the most amazing candle that my nose has ever smelt—'Winter' from The White Company. If you're on the hunt for a much needed Christmas scent, this is it. It also comes as a diffuser, pot pourri, and a spray! The White Company do plenty more amazing festive (and non-festive) scrents, so it is definitely worth considering when buying for a candle/scent lover!

Lush—for creating a sparkling pamper routine
Lush is, without a doubt, one of the best places to buy your Christmas presents from. It's guaranteed that you'll know someone who will be overjoyed with a gift from Lush, such as their Merry and Bright gift set. They even have a Secret Santa present to save you the trouble of searching high and low! As well as their usual goodies, the festive specials that I think would really put a spring in someone's step this Christmas are the star dust bath bomb, the cranberry face mask, and the reindeer rock soap.

Marks & Spencer—for literally everything
Finally, we arrive at the master of Christmas gifts. I cannot think of one thing that you cannot buy from M&S, as it is such a treasure trove of goodies and treats. I can definitely feel my family having a very marks and sparks Christmas this year... Whether it's food and drink, novelty games, beauty gift sets, or festive fragrances, if all else fails, M&S will be sure to have everything that you're looking for.
