1. First of I have this personalised constellation map, which is absolutely stunning. It is of a constellation of the night sky. Select a place, date, and time to create a design showing the night sky (or day!) as it was, or will be, at that location, at your chosen moment. Perfect for a first meeting, a first dance, or first home. You can buy it from Posterhaste.

2. Next, we have for something from Getting Personal a bit fun and giggle and that is this personalised framed print – Hollywood walk of fame. You also get to receive a letter and it is the official merchandise of Walk of fame so you know it is going to be top quality.

3. A lot of people associate Christmas with receiving a Toberlone bar, I know I certainly do. What is better than receiving this scrumptious chocolate…. you got it in one a personalised Toblerone bar to make the receiver feel super special.

4. If there is a foodie in your house then you need to see the next idea! It is a Goodies Galore food hamper full of wonderful treats that are presented in a hamper, to make the gift feel super luxurious. There are many items included but to name a few that are included are chocolate, cake and puddings. You can check out the Christmas hamper at JD Williams .

5. Looking for a present for a person who loves films? well, I have the perfect gift from Truffle Shufflewith this 100 movie scratch bucket list poster. It is basically a list of 100 films and once you have watched one of the films from the list you can scratch it off. Once the square has been scratched off it will be replaced with a design from the film.

6. I know right now Harry Potter is very popular and you can find most merchandise in a variety of shops. However, I think this is a bit quirky and something eats whilst watching the films. It is known other than a Harry Potter hamper from JD Williams . Contains the jelly beans, jelly slugs and harry potter chocolate perfect for any Harry Potter fan!

7. This checked pjs from Debenhams will be the ultimate comfort for any man who enjoys lounging around on Christmas day. You get a soft grey long sleeved top with checked red long trousers with an elastic waist (which probably let’s face it needed after Christmas dinner).

8. Now for something that is really useful and clever – a felt bedside caddy (large) from I want one of those . It is great to put on the side of your bed too but your accessible in so that it can be organised and not make a mess all over the bedside table.

9. If your sick of maybe your husband or someone else close who uses their mobile a lot then get this red5 mobile phone jail from John Lewis.The jail has a padlock and inside the jail to keep the phone secure and upright.

10. A lovely gift is this positive planner from Not on the high street.. It is A 12-week planner and journal dedicated to self-care. Featuring originally designed artwork and illustrations, inspirational quotes, art therapy and mindfulness activities.

11. Finally, I have a tasty treat to give a foodie in your family and that is a Flamigni classic hard wrapped milano panettone. The panettone is sold by Sous Chef. It is lovely Italian treat that can be delievered in the post. It is wrapped in beautiful decorative paper. The taste of the cake is amazing, it is so fresh, moist and full of flavour with the fruit and currents making it add to the sweetness. The qualitry is so good and what is better is that it is hand made so you know it is been made to a special level of expertise.

Christmas gift guide 2018

Hey readers,

I am sure we all know that Christmas is less than 5 weeks away, eek. So here are some items that I liked that would make great Christmas presents this year.

First I have this beautiful solar system bracelet. It has all the solar systems on the bracelet and think it is amazing. It is hand made from Leviko Designs and you can buy the item on her Etsy store. This is a lovely gift if you’re looking to give something a bit unusual for someone who someone who is into science. I like the fact it is handmade and made on order, just makes it feel that bit more special. When receiving the bracelet it came in a beautiful box. The bracelet was tied to ribbon inside of the box to make it secure.

The solar system beads themselves are matte labradorite for Mercury, picture jasper for Venus, chrysocolla for Earth, matte red jasper for Mars, tiger’s eye stone for Jupiter, coffee striped agate with a silver tone bead frame for Saturn, and blue striped agate for Uranus and Neptune.

The beads themselves are volcanic lava beads and semi-precious gemstones. It has a silver clasp to secure the bracelet around the wrist so it is safe and secure to wear about. It would give character to your outfit and is a unisex item that could be suitable for anyone looking for something a bit different.

I am a lover of books and luckily so are my boys so the next item is right up their street with the adaption of Tim Burton’s classic A Nightmare before Christmas. It is a 48 page book and it is a story about Jack Skellington’s adventure when he stumbles into Christmas and how he has taken it upon himself to replace Santa. However this does not go well and all hell breaks loose. A very good story to keep you on edge.

It is a story that is engaging and full of rhythm to keep children wanting to carry on reading right till the end. Both my boys love reading books with a slight dark edge to them. Of course not only children will like this story but adults too would love to receive this item if they are a fan of Disney or Tim Burton’s film.

That is why is this personalised Nightmare before Christmas book is perfect as it is beautifully illustrated. You can get the book from The Gift Experience. The books comes in a box to make it super special and you can also get names placed on the book to give it that personal touch – not only that each page has the name at the top.

The book is black binded and with gold writing to make it feel luxurious. The book also comes in a Disney Timeless gift box making it a beautifully designed item to give someone special at Christmas.

Another beautiful book is The Chrismtas Next door by T.A. Creaser. If you are doing Christmas Eve boxes then this would make an excellent book choice for your child. You can buy the book here by Owlet press.

The story tells an important message about consumerism and that it is important to share time with loved ones and being nice to one another. Sometimes, you can’t always get what you want or something goes wrong. Such as the oven breaking down, which happened in this story and though it is hard taking the good things can make you still enjoy the time together.

At the end of the day happy memories are more valuable then whether you have received the latest gadgets. It really is a beautiful story that brings home a happy and positive message. There is also a side story regarding the loss of grandad’s wife and it talks about feels with death and I feel it is done in a very sensitive way for young children.

It is a good way to help discuss loss to children and my son really was engaged and wanted to know more regarding Grandad why he felt sadness and how he moved forward with the grief of losing a special person in his life.
