Christmas Gift Guide – For All The Family Part 2

Christmas Gift Guide – For All The Family Part 2

Really? Another gift guide?

I know, I know I’m spoiling you. And I know that there are a huge amount of Christmas Gift Guides around in the blogging hemisphere at the moment. Everywhere you look there is another one popping up! My last gift guide for all the family was a really popular one and whilst I don’t want to spoil that with a dodgy follow up, I have come across a couple of other hidden gems that I wanted to share with you whilst there is still time to get those online orders in. Time is of the essence with this one guys. Santa will soon be on his way!

For the kids

Furry Friends Watch*

My little boy is always trying to steal his Dad’s watches. He then realises that he they’re far too big and then they get cast aside for something more interesting. He loves the little freebie watches that aren’t real watches that you get in those super annoying plastic eggs from the equally annoying machines. But again gets bored when he realises that they are just pretend. He wants the real thing. So when I came across the Furry Friends Watch I knew he would love it.

Perfect for kids. They look good and serve a purpose. I know he’s going to love having his own watch to wear – and it actually really does something!

Furry Friends Watch

The watch is really sturdy and with any luck will last him well. With a cute monster face, what kid wouldn’t love this?

The lovely people at Furry Friends have a limited offer running at the moment. The watch normally retails at £12.99, but today you can get it for £8.99. Head to the Furry Friends website and just use the code monster1 (all lower case) at checkout. Be quick though, this offer ends on the 18th December, while stocks last. You can also check out their Facebook page too.


The Incredible Intergalactic Journey Home Book*

You will have seen or heard about the brilliant Lost My Name books. Specially made books that are personalised with your child’s name. They are really beautiful. Well this is their latest release and is just as magical.

The story follows a curious little explorer (your child) from outer space right to their own front door. It’s a story about home. It includes a satellite view of their actual neighbourhood, and it’s so incredibly personalised that it can only belong to one child. Their name and home is included and again, I know that my little one will really love this.

You can buy the book online at the Lost My Name website. I can’t wait to see my little one’s face when he sees it.

For the ladies

Andrew Barton Glamour Curls Curling Wand

I’ve waffled on and on about my beloved new curls quite a but recently and many people have asked me how I achieve them. I can honestly say that prior to getting this little purple miracle, I couldn’t get curls to last at all.

Well people, this is the answer. The Andrew Barton Glamour Curls Curling Wand is a steal at just £19.99 from Argos. It’s super fast to heat up and is really easy to use. It takes me about 20-25 minutes to do a full head of curls and no word of a lie, they can last up to three days. One of the best things I have bought in recent months.

Groupon Spa Day or Treatment

I love this option. I’ve used it many, many times in the past and it’s great if you have no idea what to get people. What better than to treat them to a Spa Day or Treatment? Groupon have great offers on all year around and are a good choice whether it’s for Birthdays or Christmas.

For the boys

Next L’Homme Fragrance

I need to share this little secret with you. The hubby came home with some of this the other day. He is a big fan of the Le Male fragrance by Jean Paul Gautier. He goes through it like no tomorrow. That, my friends can get pricey! Well, if you’re anything like me and are happy to try and save a bit of money wherever and whenever you can, look no further than this. L’Homme by Next. It’s the perfect copy! It smells amazing and is a fraction of the price. It’s a no brainer!

Next L'Homme Aftershave

Socks, pants, wallets

You get the general idea. When all else fails, guys always need socks, pants, wallets, belts – the list goes on. If you are looking for the older Gentleman, perhaps a Grandfather, Father or Father In Law, then the online store Chums have a great selection for very reasonable prices. I thought these socks were quite trendy for any male relative no matter of their age.

Chums socks

They have many other selections of clothes to choose from. When you’re used to shopping for your husband or your brother it can sometimes be harder to find items that would suit the older gentleman, but this site really does have a wide range to choose from.

So there we have it. My last little selection of ideas for Christmas. I hope I have helped in some way and that your shopping endeavours are almost over.

By the way, I’m still looking for volunteers to wrap my presents…..?!

    The curling wand looks fab…a Mummy present. Haha. We were thinking about getting my daughter a clock for her room so a watch would also be the next best thing for when she is good with the time. Great ideas and I hope you have a lovely Christmas. Thanks for sharing with #bestandworst x

    Do you know what, I’ve actually wanted a curling wand thing for a while. Despite having naturally curly hair I want proper, coordinated curls not the craziness I display when avoiding the straighteners. Fab list, thanks for the inspiration. A xx #FamilyFun

    I love my curling wand. It’s the only way I can curl my hair! My OH brought me a spa day last year. It was honestly the best present I’ve had – worth every penny! Have a lovely Christmas and thank you for joining us at #familyfun

    I love all these gift lists. You have some great choices. Watches are always so much fun, especially when they are real working ones. We have something similar to the one in your list and it went down a treat. Thank you for linking up to the #dreamteam

    Great ideas – I love the curling wand. I tend to use my straighteners to curl and they never stay in!
