Christmas Gift Guide: The Lifestyle Edit

Everyday Gifts

If you’re looking for some great everyday gift ideas for the people in your life then I’d like to give you these options as great choices to consider as some of the very best in the lifestyle arena…

I’m a sucker for a good gift. I love make up, clothes, jewellery and pretty much everything! I’m easy to buy for, you see. But what about all the extra bits and pieces? The fun bits, the novelties, the luxuries? Well, I’ve collated my definitive guide to all the best everyday lifestyle gifts that you could give or receive this year to help cover all the extra bases. If you’re looking for something different then I’ve got your back. Prepare to add to your own Christmas list too…

Yawn The Forever Blanket – £129

What is more perfect for snuggling than this absolutely beautiful Forever Blanket from the wonderful brand, Yawn. I stumbled across these guys by total accident and I’m so glad that I did because they’re one of my favourite British discoveries this year. This blanket is made from 75% recycled cotton so it’s super soft and I snuggle with it every single night on my sofa because it keeps me snug as a bug. It’s the ultimate in luxury, cosy blankets! Plus, it’s also a really impressive size – it’s 190cmx160cm so it looks great as a throw on the bed too. If you know someone who likes to be cosy, enjoys snuggling and being wrapped up warm in the winter then they’ll love this. If supporting a British business is top of your list too this Christmas, then check these guys out for a while host of gifts, pjs and lounge wear.

Yawn Cosy Sleep Socks Set – £25

Another item that I couldn’t resist including as a top everyday gift this Christmas is the Cosy Sleep Socks Set, also from Yawn. This two pack of socks is another wonderful gift idea and includes a blue and grey pair along with a cream and oatmeal colour. (You can also buy them individually if you prefer.) The socks are made of a mix that includes cashmere and merino wool so they’re like heaven on your feet – I live in mine as they’re so soft and comfortable! If you want to give the gift of socks but with a touch a luxury then these would be right up your street. And they’re also perfect as the best accompaniment to the blanket above.

Spreadable Gin Gift Set – £19.99

If you’re buying for a Gin fan this Christmas, why not think outside the box and give this really fun Spreadable Gin Gift Set from Firebox? It’s got three different spreadable Gin’s including a standard one, a pink one and a Gin & Juice option too. They’re great on toast, with a really fruity edge and they’re something a bit different for the Gin lover in your life. I think these would also make an ace stocking filler or secret Santa gift as well.

Spacemasks – £15

If you’ve never tried a Spacemask then where have you been? I adore these self-heating eye masks and can’t get enough of them. The traditional box is navy blue but the new red box is a special edition in aid of The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity where £1 from each box will go directly to their cause. So it makes an even better gift option this year. The mask themselves are the ultimate in helping you de-stress and switch off. They self heat as soon as you put them on and give a minimum of half an hours heat directly to the eye area which is the best in helping you to relax. I’ve used these for years and they’re especially useful when I’m fighting a migraine as they help me to keep rested and calm. Plus if you struggle to get to sleep at night, they can help there too.

totes Ladies Cream Sparkle Hat & Key Ring Set – £20

Practically speaking, it’s freezing right now! So let’s remember to give practical gifts like this totes Ladies Cream Sparkle Hat & Key Ring Set. Included inside is the most lovely bobble hat in a neutral beige colour, so it will go with pretty much all outfits, and it’s got a super fluffy pom-pom on the top so it looks stylish while also keeping your head really warm during the cold days and evenings. There’s also a matching key ring with a fluffy pom-pom that completes the set. Things like this are practical and stylish, so you can’t go wrong with them!

Corkcicle Baldwin Boxer Lunch Bag – £44.95

Another practical and great everyday gift idea is the Corkcicle Baldwin Boxer Lunch Bag in rose gold, which is firstly, super pretty and girlie in it’s pink colour with rose gold clasp, but also quite practical if you’re out and about. To me it’s a ‘big girls lunchbox’ and the sort of thing I’d happily take out with my lunch inside when I’m going to meetings. It’s spacious enough to hold a drink inside and has an adjustable section for it so it won’t move around. There’s also space for lots of food items and an external front pocket too. So lots of space, looks great and stylish – perfect for women on the go.

Clean Reserve Avant Garden Hemp & Ginger Eau de Parfum – £129

Nothing is more perfect as a special everyday gift than one of the new Clean Reserve Avant Garden range perfumes. There’s some amazing new blends to add to their existing range of fragrances, and technically speaking they’re all unisex so suitable for men as well as women. The new Hemp & Ginger variety is wonderful and highly unusual as a daily fragrance – it’s got a woody blend that’s exotic and spicy all in one. With oud base notes and heart notes of ginger, it’s the sort of fragrance that lasts well all day. On top of that, it’s vegan friendly and gluten free so anyone and everyone will be able to appreciate and enjoy this lovely scent at Christmas.

The Artisan Colour Changing Gin Kit – £29.99

For those who love Gin but also like fun food-type gifts (Gin-foodies? Is that a thing?!) then this Artisan Colour Changing Gin Kit is perfect – and fun! What could be better than creating your very own Gin, and then naming it after yourself, but also watching it change colour during the process too? Make the Gin yourself from scratch and as you add tonic when you go to drink it afterwards, you’ll see it magically turn pink – nifty right?! And you get an authentic corked bottle to store your creation in – perfect for a tipple here and there.

SodaStream Crystal Set – £149.99

The perfect everyday gift that the whole family can enjoy this Christmas is the SodaStream Crystal Set. It’s the ideal starter set to give you a full introduction into the world of SodaStream and how it takes your tap water from flat to fizzy in seconds. You won’t need to only have boring tap water options now, with this you can create fizzy water that mixes with great flavoured Soda Press additions to create yummy soft drinks and mocktails! My husband loves sparkling water so this was a great choice for us. Plus it’s already helped him cut down on his single-use plastic bottles because he can make this at home and take it to work with him. The Crystal Set includes a sparkling water maker, your first carbonating cylinder, 3 glass water bottles, two Soda Press flavours (Raspberry & Mint and Lemonade) and comes with free shipping and a 2 year warranty.
