Whatever your excuse for leaving your Christmas shopping responsibilities until the last minute, it’s time to stop procrastinating and get your friends and family’s gifts sorted – time is running out and the big day is just over a week away!
But, don’t panic, we’ve pulled together a comprehensive gift guide with plenty of inspiration for your loved ones.
Men are notoriously difficult to buy for. Picky, scared of change and insistent that they “don’t need anything new”. How about the perfect B.I.Y. – Brew It Yourself – beer making kit? (£39.99, Fire Box)
Let’s face it, candles are a safe bet for mums, aunties, grans… yourself! But Jo Malone’s range are that little bit extra special and smell divine, especially this lime basil & mandarin home candle. To uplift, wind down or simply add an air of luxury, you’ll head straight to the top of mums nice list (£42, Jo Malone).
If your dad is a whiskey lover, here’s a fantastic gift. Including 5 specially selected whiskey miniatures, a selected ‘sixth dram’ of super-premium whiskey, complete with luxury tasting cards and a guided tour of the drams in letter form. We think this giftset is a winner for dad (£36.99, Not On The Highstreet).
We love the fact tarte cosmetics is a cruelty-free cosmetics line, never tested on animals. And we think your sister will love this limited-edition palette by the Swamp Queen herself, Bunny! (£33, Tarte Cosmetics)
If your folically blessed brother needs to keep his hipster beard in check, we highly recommend the Bearded Colonel’s shaving gift set. It contains all the best tools for a premium shave and will make his morning shave something he looks forward to! (£60, Bearded Colonel)
For the kids
Forget Trivial Pursuit and liven up the festive lull with Pie Face Showdown – just add whipped cream. Fun for all the family. (£22.99, Argos)
For a friend
If your friend already eats organically, recycles regularly, and uses eco-friendly cleaning products, then they’re ready to take the plunge into natural beauty. Help them on their way with The Winter Icon Cleanse & Polish in sweet orange & clove by Liz Earle (£22.75, Liz Earle).
For secret Santa
Hopefully you’ve pulled your work bezzie’s name out of the hat. If so, we think this Cat Nap Brightening Sheet Mask is the perfect remedy to help them recover the day after the work Christmas do. For when you’ve had zero hours sleep, this is the ideal mask for when skin needs an instant pick me up (£5, Nails Inc).
And don’t forget, you deserve nice things too. So, if you’re planning to start a new healthy lifestyle in January, we could help you be better to yourself now, without giving up the Christmas indulgences.
