Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide!

Can you believe Christmas is just next week! If you're like me and haven't done all of your Christmas shopping yet then do not fret! There is still time to purchase all of your Christmas presents. And if you don't have time to shop in stores simply get shopping online. Here are the brands I recommend, which offer something for everyone!

The Personalised Gift Shop

If you're looking for a unique gift, the Personalised Gift Shop offers something for everyone, with a wonderful and diverse range of personalised gifts. Ranging from Christmas themed all the way through to Birthday, Anniversary and Special Occasion gifts there is such a big selection it's difficult to choose what to purchase. There are also gifts for children and babies and a whole array of experiences to buy. As I rarely buy presents for myself I decided to order an early Christmas present to myself in the form of this beautiful rose gold plated personalised heart charm bracelet for £19.99. With my initial P on the heart and a gorgeous dainty design, I love it! I also love to buy experiences for people and there are so many on the website to choose from including afternoon tea to flying and short breaks away! These make a perfect gift and I chose a three course meal with wine for two Prezzo for just £30. The delivery was super quick and my items were dispatched the next day. If you're having difficultly picking a gift for someone have a look on the site and I'm sure you'll find something for that special person.


Maqio offers toys and games at competitive prices. With age categories ranging from 0-11+ years you can find a child a suitable a suitable gift! Pip's favourite toys at the moment are dinosaurs, LEGO and cars and with so many things to play with he doesn't need any more toys.  In fact, we have so many toys it's difficult to know where and how to store them all. So when Maqio offered to send us some Maqio Boxes for storing toys, I jumped at the chance! We ordered a selection of the lovely designed boxes including the zoo themed Maqio IML Print Stockholm Storage Office Toy Boxes - Set of 5 at £17.99 and a selection of Maqio 22 Litre IML Print Stockholm Storage Solution Office Toy Boxes. As soon as they arrived Pip loved opening the boxes and collecting all of his toys to put in each box. As Pip loves Dinosaurs and also tall buildings he loved the animal, dinosaur and London designs. Unlike usual clear boxed storage sets these are lovely to look at. The set of 5 boxes were easy for Pip to use (he is 5 years old) and each box has a secure fastening holding the lid in place. We love these boxes and I'm sure we'll be using these for a long time to come! Maqio offers free delivery if you spend over £15.

Victoria Plum

Victoria Plum offers inspirational bathroom sets at affordable prices including baths, toilets, basins, bathroom furniture and accessories. They also offer some gorgeous gift sets from Baylis & Harding - perfect for any woman or man! Ranging from £2.49 to £40, there are a range of great valued presents. One of the things I opted for was this Baylis & Harding jojoba, silk & almond oil small 3 piece set. Beautifully arranged in a pack with 100ml body wash, 100ml hand & body lotion and 50ml shower crème, this make a perfect little present for Christmas. Have a look on their page for the full selection of gifts with so many vibrant fragrances.

BlueRock bamboo toothbrushes

I came across BlueRock bamboo toothbrushes recently and wanted to promote them for a varity of reasons. In an era where we use and throw away such a huge consumption of plastic - did you know 8 million tonnes of plastic ends up in the ocean every year, killing so much marine life - I want to find plastic alternatives! BlueRock supports marine life conservation by being made from bamboo and they also donate 10p per toothbrush to marine life conservation projects. They have recently launched their new family-friendly bamboo toothbrush subscription service as well as Christmas stocking fillers. New features include coloured Bristles and new BlueRock minis™ (Child bamboo toothbrushes). I have some of these for our stockings and cannot wait to try these out!

Many thanks to the above brands for providing the products shown. All opinions are my own.

Which gift would you choose? Are you ready for Christmas?



  1. Lots of great idea's here! I love the idea of the "buy-a-gift" card as experiences are always lovely especially when its something you know the recipient would love to do or something they wouldn't normally treat themselves too!

  2. Some great gift ideas here, that would be useful all year round, not just Christmas :)
