It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Oh Christmas, we have missed you. T minus 22 days until the big day and I could not be any more excited if I tried. The decorations are up, the tin of celebrations is out in the living room, the Christmas scented candles are burning and the Christmas playlists are on repeat every day. Can it get any better?! I adore the lead-up period as there’s just a real buzz in the air!
I’m in such an overly festive mood after a weekend at the Manchester Christmas markets, which were amazing FYI. I’m going to do a write up on my weekend, so stay tuned.
So, dare I ask if you’ve got all your presents in yet?! I’ve been particularly organised this year and I’m just about finished, I literally have a handful of things to get and then the stress is over for another year. I just hope everyone who I’ve bought for likes my presents! If you’re feeling sick reading this, thinking ‘oh my god, I’ve got so much to do’ fear not, need some inspo?! Keep reading.
Your best mate always seems like the easiest person to buy for, for Christmas but when it comes to it you can feel abit stuck on what to get her! That’s certainly how I’ve felt this year so I thought why not put together a girly Christmas gift guide with Prezzybox to share my ideas.
Here we go…
I have a serious obsession with mugs and my best friend loves flamingos so I couldn’t resist this glam flamingo mug! It’s bound to make all her work pals insanely jealous, girl you slay with this mug! Made from quality ceramic, this pretty pink mug features a handle with a difference. A bold flamingo curves its neck to form the handle of the mug.
So Gin has most definitely been the in thing this year hasn’t it? I honestly think the gin hype won’t be fading any time soon unless vodka has a facelift! My bestie loves a gin and she loves candles?! What a combo! Vineyard Candles are created using luxury natural wax blended with luxury fragrances. This Gin and Tonic fragrance was created using the tasting notes from a famous Gin maker. It You can expect a Juniper smell with hints of coriander and citrus.
Why not pimp up your prosecco with some shimmer this season?! This shimmer adds an iridescent sparkle and heart-shaped flakes of gold to drinks. It’s Raspberry flavour too and all you need to do is simply add 1/3 teaspoon. I just know my bestie is going to be obsessed with this!
I’m pretty sure when the New Year comes in, my best friend and I will return to being dedicated gym bunnies and eating like actual bunnies after a big Christmas blow out. As they say, New Year, New Me and all that! So, it’s important to have all the gear isn’t it, a new gym outfit and of course a new water bottle. This is such a fun and quirky gift that I know she’ll love.
After all, food is a vital part of the festive season! This personalised choc chip cookie is suitable for vegetarians and has14 day shelf life. I’d personally be over the moon with this gift, I love the fact you can put whatever message you like and then eat it. I know my bestie has such a sweet tooth and I know she likes a cookie or two so I thought I’d surprise her with this. Hopefully, she shares it with me!
Every month myself and my girlfriends take it in turns to host a cocktail evening which is a good way to catch up since we lead such busy lives. We bring Gin, Prosecco, Pizza and put the world to rights. With our cocktail evening events in mind, these champagne saucers would come in very handy for the first bottle of the night before things get lary. I love the copper plated stems and the wide brims, it reminds me of the roaring twenties! They really are the perfect girly gift.
I feel like all of these gifts have something to do with alcohol. I swear my best friend isn’t an alcoholic (and I’m not either)! When I first saw this kit, I thought what a fun idea! Avoid the shops, save money and make your own gin! With this kit you can make your own gin infusions, it includes a 1 litre sealed mason jar, muslin cloth and funnel, 3 serving bottles and labels and a recipe leaflet with two recipes. All you need to provide is the ingredients that are necessary! This is such an exciting way to have alcohol and the fun starts before you even drink any! There’s also an app you can download (which is advertised in this pack) to access lots more recipes. So get this gin infusion kit for some gin-spiration!
