In the absence of tonight’s video on my YouTube channel (you can blame Lawson’s nap refusal for that!), I am going to give you an extra blog post instead – gift ideas for her… Which also happens to be my Christmas Wish List. There is a variety of stuff on here, something for everyone I like to think, but particularly for the mummy/blogger/creative type – look no further.
First on my list is a trusty pair of Topshop jeans. Having lost most of my pregnancy weight now, I’m chuffed that I can fit back into my pre-pregnancy jeans. One of my favourite pairs, however, didn’t make it due to me trying to squeeze my butt into them prematurely, so I’m in need of new ones! Jamie jeans are always my go to, and these gorgeous ones are £42.
Every mama needs new PJs at Christmas. These ones are top of my list! They are from Tu Clothing at Sainsburys and are £24 for the set. I lustfully stroke them every single time I go in there, they are so soft and very festive. Love.
I have wanted a Zara jumper for the longest time. They are such good quality and I like my jumpers to be timeless so I can just wear them year after year. I’ve been after a black one for a while now and I spotted this one in store the other week. I can’t explain how much I love it. You can’t go wrong with a black jumper like this! £39.99, a little pricey for me to justify buying for myself, so on the Christmas list it goes!
These are to go with the black jumper, from Topshop, £14 (although I think they’re reduced on the website right now). I’ve loved the tassel earring trend for ages, and I think these are gorgeous!
Since the recent ditching of the Slimming World diet, I’m in need of some inspiration for plant-based recipes. I used to have another Deliciously Ella book that was lovely, but I lost it, so this one is now firmly on the list. This would be a great book for anyone looking to get into plant based food! It’s £16 from Amazon.
I only really get perfume twice a year, for my birthday in May, and then Christmas. The rest of the time, people are just blessed with my natural scent. And I’m a bit sick of it! This year, I’m going hard or going home (probably the latter) and asking for Jo Malone perfume for Christmas. I think I will just keep it for special occasions, and then try and pick up a cheaper daytime perfume for every day use. This bad boy comes in at £90 (!!!), but I smelt it once and it was the best thing ever.
This is very exciting for me. I feel like when people ask what my favourite Christmas present was this year, this will be the answer. I just know that this little gadget is going to change my life. It’s a handheld hoover, currently £38 on Very, and it’s going to revolutionise the way you clear up after mealtimes. For any mama who has a messy eater (so every mama), this one’s for you.
This is just going to fuel my Instagram passion. I’ve wanted one of these for absolutely ages, I just think they look so great in photos! This one is £35 from Hurn & Hurn (a website I hadn’t heard of before actually, but there are some really great things on there!) They do all sorts of colours and sizes, and I think this would make a great gift!
Again appealing to the Instagrammer in me, Dunelm do a great range of artificial flowers, which to be honest, won’t go up in my home, but will instead be stored as flatlay props. So for anyone who is into their ‘Instagram Art’ (that’s a thing), this one is for them.
Last but not least is this gorgeous bag by Carvela. I’ve been carting around the same £10 Tesco handbag for waaaay to long and it’s time for an upgrade. This one is a bit pricey at £39, but I really love it and I think the quality will be amazing. You cannot beat a good handbag for Christmas. Goes without saying.
So I hope that’s given you a bit of inspiration if you’re a lady looking for Christmas ideas or have a lady to find Christmas ideas for! Happy shopping!
