WARNING TO MY FRIENDS & FAMILY! Some of these gifts MAY be for you! I wanted to include some gifts that I thought were particularly good or unique ideas (if I do say so myself!) so if you're a family member, please stop reading/ scrolling!!
So, we'll start with the 'Dads and Grandads' Gift idea, mostly because I feel like my Dad and Grandads are the least likely to be reading this post and even if they are reading, they're probably the most likely to listen when I say STOP READING! Ahem. Moving on.
I found this Gentlemen's Hardware Shoe Shine kit on the Amara website, however it doesn't look as though it's available anymore. This one from John Lewis looks to be pretty much the same with slightly altered packaging, but it is the same brand if you're interested in it! I thought this was fab as it's a really useful gift, I find the men in my life quite hard to buy for, so something that's useful, but nicely presented like this seemed like a great idea. The other two gifts I actually don't have links for as I can't find the exact items on the sites! The mixed nuts basket gift is from Tesco and I thought this was a fab gift idea. The boxed Innis & Gun Ale is from Sainsbury's, you'll find it with all their other alcohol gifts. I thought this would make a nice little extra to a bigger gift, or just a small token gift for someone. The fact that it's boxed just makes it look that little bit more special than just giving them any old bottle of beer.
Next up, we've got my personal favourites, the Prosecco lovers gifts!
If you know someone who loves Gardening and being outdoors, these next gifts will be for you (or uh.. them).
My Grandparents are very into gardening and I know from my Nan that when you do a lot of gardening, you get through gloves pretty quickly. So, you're probably pretty unlikely to buy pretty ones for yourself. I think it's nice though to have some cute gloves like these Caroline Gardner ones, just so you can enjoy them for whatever short time you can before they fall apart! I found the butterfly house in my local Home Bargains and unfortunately can't find it online now, but these pop up in lots of little homeware shops, so just keep an eye out! Obviously these aren't gifts that are going to be too useful right away as it's a bit cold during the winter for butterflies but they'll be lovely come spring time!
Finally, this last set of gifts are for anyone who loves to cook, or perhaps for someone who just has to cook and could do with some cute gifts to perk up their time in the kitchen!
So, that's it for now! I hope this post has been somewhat helpful to those of you starting your Christmas shopping!
