My Very First Christmas Gift Guide


Christmas is coming and this is officially my first Christmas blog post of the year. I have been such a busy girl but not too busy for my FIRST Christmas Gift Guide. There is still plenty of time to buy Christmas presents for your family and friends and this post includes some fab little gifts to hopefully help you out if you are struggling.

Retro Camera- A Collector’s Guide to Vintage Film Photography *


You cannot go wrong with books. Actually you can…but, it is easy not to. Find what people are interested in and it is certain there will be a book on it. Photography and Film fr example. How sweet is this book on Retro Camera, The Collector’s Guide to Vintage Film Photography? Very. Pages and pages of vintage retro cameras. Flicking through the glossy pages of this beautiful hardback book, my eyes beamed as I saw multiple pages about Polaroid Cameras, my absolute fave.  This book is full of different types of camera, tips on how to use them and how to execute the best pictures. Starting from ‘The Basics’ too. This book is for any Photography fan, beginner or expert and it is available to buy from Thames & Hudson here.

The Nut Kitchen- Hazelnut and Chocolate Spread *


This is such a cute stocking filler. What is better than a scrumptious, nutty, chocolate spread. Describes as “A melt-in-the mouth blend of Italian Hazelnuts (45%) and Belgian chocolate how could you not want to spread this all over your toast? Or even on biscuits. You could use this spread for cooking too, the list is endless but I am really excited to add a scoop of this to a hot chocolate next time I make one. Don’t worry if Hazelnut isn’t your type of nut…. The Nut Kitchen as lots of spread and on their website for you to chose from. You know as a blogger when you receive a PR parcel and you have got to wait until you photograph the gift before you use…. IT. WAS. TORTURE.

Scents Unusual- Cuban Tobacco & Oak Candle *


One of the best presents you can get someone is a candle, because there are so many different brands, types, smells, sizes. Scents Unusual do some very unique scented candles, one of those scents being Cuban Tobacco & Oak. This candle does smell really really good. It has such a strong manly scent which means it is a great gift for men too.  It is very calming and warm, rich and spicy, perfect for these winter nights, perfect as a Christmas gift. With a  burn time of 40 hours, this candle will last you a while as it is such a strong smell.

Bomb Cosmetics- Bath Bomb


You should all know by now that I love bath bombs so of course I had to include them in my gift guide. A bath bomb is honestly the perfect stocking filler. These bombs are from Bomb Cosmetics. The first called Chilly Willy, described as smelling like warming cinnamon, but I would say it is more of a fresh scent, it still smells so good.  You can’t have Chilly Willy without Chilly Milly. This bomb smells a lot more fruity and floral. These two have got to be one of the cutest bath bomb designs I have ever saw. Pink Christmas Blaster is super pretty and pink, perfect for you pink lovers! It also smells sweet and sugary. Bath Bombs really are such amazing gifts….but these are all for myself HEHE.

Primark x Disney


The Primark x Disney collection is AMAZING. There is so much to chose from, teddies, blankets, Christmas decorations, clothes, candles, mugs and more! Primark is so affordable. I went in to find some blog props and ended up finding the cutest Minnie Mouse items. These Gold Hoop Minnie Mouse earrings are super cute especially paired up with the soft velvet scrunchie! I honestly don’t know who to give these too or to keep them for myself!

Mrs Potts and Chip Coasters


I got this set of coaster in a gift shop in Center Parcs Sherwood Forest, they were so cute I had to include them in a blog post. The perfect gift for a Disney fan and a tea lover. I cannot decide which is cuter. “Slowly, now. Don’t spill!” or “I thought you might like a spot of tea”. Which do you think? Anyway, do not fear, because your girl has only gone and found a website where they’re available.

So that is it for my Christmas Gift Guide, I hope you all liked it. Let me know which gift you like the sound of in the comments and remember that these do not have to be a gift for Christmas, if you are not celebrating then treat yourself to one of these goodies. I will be back with another Christmas-ish post.

*Some of these items were given to me but all views are my own.

    Oh my gosh those Minnie Mouse earrings are actually adorable!?!? I want them so badly! Definitely going to have to pop into my local Primark and be on the hunt now! Bath products are for sure my favourite gift to receive and I bet they’re yours too (I’m glad you’re keeping those for yourself!). The hazelnut and chocolate spread sounds gorgeous too, I’m such a sucker for slathering it on toast and convincing myself it’s healthy as its got nuts in 🙂 probably not the case but oh well 🙂 Looking forward to your next “Christmas-ish post”!

    This is such a fantastic gift guide Shar! I’ve only recently discovered Bomb Cosmetics and I’m loving their bath bombs! He he, Chilly Willy and Chilly Milly sound brilliant! The Minnie Mouse earrings are so cute, Primark have so much cool stuff at the moment, I have a couple of pairs of Disney PJ’s (Toy Story and Beauty and the Beast) and love them! Oh my, Mrs Potts and Chip Coasters are the best! Thanks for sharing, such a cute selection of goodies! <3 xxx

    Fantastic guide lovely! Would never have guessed it was your first one 🙂 I hate that my anxiety is too bad to go into Primark at the moment because I’d have a field day with their Disney range! xxx

      Thanks so much! I tip for primark is going about 30 mins before it shuts, it is really empty and you have enough time to look around xx

      • December 16, 2018 / 9:26 pm

        I used to work in primark! I don’t know how I did it x

    I don’t quite know how I still haven’t tried anything from Bomb Cosmetics yet because they’ve been on my want list for absolutely ages – is it too late to ask for bits from them for Christmas?! 😍
