Christmas Gift Guide 2016 – For All The Family

Christmas Gift Guide 2016 – For All The Family

Me? Write a Gift Guide? Are you kidding?!

This is so out of character it’s ridiculous. I am normally so unorganised with Christmas presents, writing a gift guide would most definitely not work. However this year, a Christmas miracle seems to have happened. As I sit here, on the last Sunday in November, I can happily say that I have finished my Christmas shopping. Yep. I have a smug grin on my face aswell!

So now that I’ve finished, I have the time to try and help you, if you’re not so fortunate as me, and if like me most other years, haven’t got the foggiest as to what to buy people. Let’s see if I can help!

For the fitness lovers

Aero X Home Suspension Trainer Kit*

The Aero X Home Pro Suspension Trainer Kit – Home Gym Full Body Fitness Workout + Door Anchor is perfect for getting in a workout at home. It can be used inside and outside so is a great all year round gift idea. If at the end of a long day you don’t want to leave the house again to get to the gym, then there is no excuse not to get your calories burnt in the comfort of your own home or garden.

You can perform over 100 resistance band exercises with the endurance training straps and it’s suitable for all levels of fitness. It comes with an E-Book full of instructions and so is perfect for anyone who may want to get in shape. Oh, and there’s a lifetime guarantee aswell!

Foam Roller For Muscle Massage*

Gift Guide Foam Roller

Made by the same people who bring you the Suspension Trainer Kit, the Aero Sports Pro 2 in 1 Grid Textured and Smooth Foam Roller For Muscle Massage – High Density Roller for Myofascial Muscle Tension Release – FREE CARRY CASE can be used for warm ups and cool downs. The deep tissue massage will help reduce muscle stiffness, remove lactic acid and eliminate muscle knots. This also comes with and E-Book and a lifetime guarantee.

My husband loves both of these products and says they are so useful on nights he just doesn’t want to go back out in the cold to go to the gym. He’s also looking forward to using them in the garden next Summer.

Both products are available on Amazon (also with Prime, so even better if you’re a member!)

For the music lovers

We all know a music lover – it’s my Sister and I in our family. Music always sounds extra awesome when it’s listened to through headphones. These 5 in 1 wireless headphones can be used both wired and wireless and with a range of devices – not just your portable music player. They have an integrated FM transmitter too – bonus!!

For the book lovers

Personalised Bookmark

Sticking with traditional book reading, these gorgeous personalised bookmarks have an extra special touch to them. Made from sterling silver, these bookmarks can be personalised with up to 35 characters. A lovely keepsake for years to come.

For the kids

Suitable for both boys and girls this EZ Fort Construction Toy is sure to be a hit. No more digging out the clothes horse and risk it collapsing on the kids! Complete with 54 pieces to construct a multitude of different ‘dens’, I know for one that my little boy would love this – if any family reading wants any ideas for him this year – this would be it!

Jungle Jam Book*

Gift Guide Jungle Jam BookGift Guide Jungle Jam Book

This adorable new book ‘Jungle Jam 2016‘ written by husband and wife team Louise and Noam Lederman, is a 32 page picture book with an educational music themed story. My little boy has a huge interest in music at the moment and I was really excited to read this to him. He really enjoyed it and we have read it several times together! It’s a rhyming book designed especially for young children as an introduction to musical instruments and sounds. He now wants to be in a band more than ever! It also shows children how working together as part a team is always best. It came with lovely little jigsaw puzzle and a fridge magnet which was equally as popular. You can buy the book from Amazon.

For the chocolate lovers

Chocolate Survival Kit

It’s a sure bet you will know someone who will appreciate this Chocolate Survival Kit this Christmas. Complete with a variety of chocolate bars and sweets and including a cheeky alcoholic surprise – best to keep this for the adult chocolate lover in the family!

And finally…

For the lady you never know what to buy

A Bouquet of Flowers*

Gift Guide Blossoming Gifts Flowers

There is always someone you just have no idea what to buy and what better than bringing some beauty to the home in the form of flowers? Blossoming Gifts offer a wide range of gift ideas – just flowers if that’s all you want but also many other types of gifts such as personalised gifts, hampers, wines and plants. There are free chocolates or wine of selected bouquets and they offer next day delivery – complete with gift card. There are of course plenty of Christmas Flowers Gifts available, perfect for Christmas presents this year.

I was lucky enough to receive a bouquet from them (or rather my Mum was – because I’m a nice daughter!!) and this particular bouquet came with the lovely jug you see in the picture. A nice keepsake for future flower gifts! The flowers came well packaged with flower food and lasted a good week.

So there we have it. A small round up of gift ideas. Let me know if you like them in the comments below and if you’ve bought anything like these in the past – how were they received?


So, now I’ve written my done my Christmas shopping and written my gift guide I need to wrap my presents. Any willing volunteers?!

    That chocolate survival kit looks immense! And I’m always a sucker for flowers too. My son loves to build a den, but I suspect he’s maybe a touch too young for the den building kit – totally keeping it in mind for a few year’s time though! Thanks for joining us again at #SharingtheBlogLove

      3rd December 2016 / 2:16 pm

      My pleasure. Kids are hard to by for when there’s so much choice. It’s hard to find anything unique!

  17. 3rd December 2016 / 6:21 pm

    Love this gift guide – we went from exercise to chocolate heaven! lol I think I’ll take the chocolate pack myself please! lol And I’m impressed with that Elf tent! What a cool gift! Thank you for sharing with us at #BloggerClubUK x

      Haha I hadn’t even realised I’d done that but I obviously have! It shows I have good intentions if nothing else!! Glad you enjoyed it. X

  18. 3rd December 2016 / 8:15 pm

    Some fantastic ideas in here. I always struggle with my kids as I feel they have everything! The Jungle Jam books looks great. And that tent looks amazing. Definitely something to consider when my kids are a bit older! Great guide!
