It’s the time of year to gift and treat your loved ones. This is my favourite thing about Christmas and last year you may remember I posted a few gift guides. I am back again with a round up of my favourite brands and gifts of the year. Continue reading to see my break down and Christmas Gift Guide 2018.

Lifestyle Items

Johnny Loves Rosie is a beautiful accessories brand that has some gorgeous items. I chose these beautiful earrings to gift my bridesmaids at our wedding next year but I wanted to include them as they make great gifts. They are super feminine pieces and I love the quality of them. Also, check out their handbag range which is vegan.

This mi pac bum bag is a super cute fashion item and would make a sweet gift. It’s a trend to wear this style of bag but across your body instead of on your hips. Perfect gift for a teenager or young person into trends.

Shamelessly plugging my own products but I launched 4 pin badges earlier this year! I have a few of these exclusive designs left and they would make amazing stocking fillers, bridal gifts (the something blue pins) or even just a treat for yourself.

If you are after some new decorations for your home then definitely check out Tkmaxx. I love the shop and am in there often for homewares and fashion items. I came across this box set of 3 quirky decorations and they are perfect. All three were only £5.99!

I can’t stress enough how much I enjoy my Instax cameras. There is something about the instant image taken in the moment that is hard to beat. Having tangible items feels very nostalgic in the digital age and it’s also a lovely memory to keep. This is the new Instax SQ 6 camera which is very similar to the classic Instax mini in how it works. There is also the addition of double exposure, selfie settings, and filter attachments.

Ice Watch is one of my favourite brands as I work with them throughout the year on content across my social channels. I’ve been lucky enough to collect lots of amazing styles as they have been gifted to me for the work. I highly recommend them for gifts, although slightly higher price bracket they would make lovely main presents.

Advent Calendar

Oh, advent calendars are just so wonderful! This Bloom 25 days of Christmas calendar is so perfect for me as I love candles. Gift this to your mum or friend and it’s 25 days worth of treats. In day 1 you get a little tealight holder followed by days of tea light candles. It’s a simple concept but something a bit different especially compared to the traditional chocolate or sweet calendars. Now only £12 at Superdrug.

Beauty Items

My Mood is a brand that launched only this year but has taken the beauty market by storm. The products can be found in Boots exclusively and they’re blooming fantastic. The packaging and quality of formulas are remarkable for a drugstore brand. I love their quirky branding and fun slogans on all the products. These would make fantastic stocking presents or gift a collection of things like in the above photo to a beauty lover.

For all nail lovers look nowhere else than to Nails Inc. Their Christmas gift sets are perfect and then their individual shades are also great mini gift ideas. I don’t use any other brands now because these last, the colour payoff is exactly like the bottle and their shades are the most unique on the market.

If you follow me on Instagram you might already know I work part time for Revolution Beauty. Having been with the brand for nearly a year I am of course extremely fond of their products. Above is a collection of some of my favourite and newly launched items. Make sure to take full advantage of their black Friday savings also!

My lovely friend Sophie Hannah launched her own fragrance body mist earlier this year with Impulse. I had to include this in my gift guide as it’s been my go-to everyday fragrance since I got it. Pop this in a stocking for any mermaid or holiday lovers as it gives me major summer vibes!


I don’t think I just speak for myself when I say I love ‘smellies’ for Christmas! It’s always been one of my favourite things to receive so I also love gifting them. Yardley is always a great choice for Mums, Aunties or nans as the smells are simple but really sweet. The English Rose is definitely my favourite from their range. They also have some fragrances that come in the same scent.

More lovely stocking ideas for beauty lovers have to be the Schwarzkopf Got 2 b range of hair products. This new collection not only looks Instagram perfect but they smell amazing too.

Lastly, another brand I love who is INC.redible cosmetics. I had to include this insane glitter lipstick as it’s pigment pays off exactly as it looks here. Great little gift for party peeps or festival goers.

I hope you enjoyed my Christmas Gift Guide 2018 as it’s full of all my favourites. I have kindly been gifted these items but I wouldn’t share anything I didn’t personally love or want to be gifted myself. Have an amazing Christmas and enjoy treating your loved ones.
