‘Tis the season for shopping and with all of the fantastic Black Friday deals floating around, what better time than now to share a super stylish gift guide?
Below are some of the prettiest, coolest and classiest gifts I’ve come across this season for her, him and perhaps even you!
Who else went jade with envy whilst seeing the upper echelons of the blogosphere show off their shimmering limited edition bottles of Armani Prive during its lustrous launch campaign? Well, it seems that the fashionable folks are Armani listened to our cries of ‘we want it too!’ and have brought out their popular Sí fragrance with the same dazzling sparkle effect. My mum and I both agreed that, whilst it smells glorious (soft and slightly sweet), we’d struggle to bring ourselves to use up something so darn pretty! But my, what a lovely addition to any vanity table. Yes, please.
Once the fun and festivities are over and we’re back to those long, dark January nights what better way to unwind than to relax in a hot bubble bath with a glass of wine and a good book? Save a loved one the inevitable arm cramp, threat of technological mishaps and the indignation of resting a glass of merlot on the loo lid. Get them this beautiful and rather handy wooden bath shelf which folds away for easy storage. Netflix binge sesh anyone?
Nothing says bad and boujie like a gold champagne bucket and besides, who likes warm bubbles? Treat the prosecco princess in your life to this rather glamorous looking ice bucket which, by the way, is giving me major Versace vibes. Sold.
If my house is anything to go by, even the trendiest of timepieces can often be found thrown down on a bedside table where they’re bound to suffer scratches-a-plenty. Save them and instead treat someone to this elegant watch box, complete with initial personalisation to make it super special.
Keeping it classy with another personalised piece – this planner, complete with monogrammed initials, is perfect for the professional in your life. If I didn’t already have a pretty pink Filofax I’d definitely have put this on my ‘self gifting’ list. It comes in multiple colours, they even have black for the boys (not that they can’t rock pink of course). What’s more, Kikki K are offering 20% off everything and free monogramming this Black Friday weekend – go! Go! GO!
Speaking of monogramming for men, this leather toiletry bag is great for any guy on the go and what’s more, it means we get to encourage a little more manscaping – it’s a win-win! I’m a sucker for all things black and gold but there are plenty of other colours on here for even for less – yay for a bargain.
For the host with the most, give their parties and pre-drinks an air of extravagance with the gift of a prosecco waterfall to start proceedings. ‘But don’t you need loads of glasses for that?’, you ask, ‘and what about all the spillage?’. Well, forget the wasteful ways of the rich – these particular champagne coupes are stackable and fit flat inside one another meaning even us normal folk can enjoy such lavish a luxury when not a drop is wasted. I say cheers to that!
Show the sentimental señorita in your life that you care by marking a special time and place in hers with this gorgeous gold, rose gold or silver plated cuff bracelet with coordinates engraved. There’s even the option of a hidden message on the inside too, ‘naww. Meeting place, birth place, favourite place… This Etsy seller offers a service where, if you provide the address, they’ll look up the coordinates for you so your loved one forever has a momento of that loved location – SO cute!
A bit of beauty now and I’m obsessed with this beautiful bamboo palette from Inglot. Inglot has long been, by far, one of my favourite makeup brands – in fact, if you dare scroll back to the very beginning of my YouTube videos, you can hear me gushing about them in my family home bathroom all those years ago. Fast forward to now and they’re still offering quality, highly pigmented products at really affordable prices – £4 for an eyeshadow anyone? Their cool Freedom Palettes allow you to mix and match their already depotted products – that is eyeshadows, blushes etc. in little tins without all that extra plastic casing. They then magnetise to your bamboo palette so that you can mix and match your collection on the move. The palettes even magnetise together, stacking neatly to there’s less chance of a Ross Gellar, ‘IT’S ALL OVER EVERYTHING!!’ moment when travelling. I already have a glass one of theirs that been going strong for years but it’s very cool to see they’ve brought out this eco-friendly bamboo version too.
Finally, for the chef in your life this multi-use salt block will add flair to any feast they serve. It works as a cool chopping board to infuse foods with extra flavour or can be used as a hot or cold serving board to impress the fanciest of guests. You may not ‘get’ it but your foodie friend will.
On that note, I hope I’ve given you some food for thought when it comes to your Christmas shopping. Most of these products are discounted this weekend for Black Friday so if you act fast they’ll be even less than listed here. Remember to check out my Black Friday Secrets YouTube video and blog post for my top tips on tackling the sales. Tomorrow I’ll be sharing my own personal Christmas wish list so check back in the morning for more superb shopping suggestions!
