Christmas is approaching at lightning speed and I thought it would be polite of me to give you a friendly reminder that Christmas is the season of giving, as much as receiving – I know I could definitely use a reminder of that! So if you haven’t already spent all your cash on presents for yourself in the Black Friday sales, this one’s for you, a gift guide for everyone in your life, and things they’ll actually want. Buying presents is definitely one of my favourite parts of Christmas, it’s like going on a little guilt free shopping spree where you can spend as much money as you want without having to have a little “why did I buy ANOTHER black jumper” cry when you get home later. Fantastic.

Shopping for mum’s is usually down to what type of mum you have, for example, the sentimental mum who would love a pair of earrings, or on the other end of the spectrum is the gym mum who is more excited by a new pair of trainers.. I’m still trying to decide what type of mum my mum is..

Secret Santa gifts can be so tricky sometimes, especially when you don’t know the person that well! I think personalised gifts are so good for Secret Santa because it shows that you put that extra bit of effort in rather than just getting them a generic box of chocolates or gift set!
Hope that gave you a little bit of extra inspiration if you’re struggling for ideas this year, or maybe even gave you some ideas of what to put on your own wishlist. Now it’s time to get shopping, good luck!
