I love gifting, it's no secret that I am a shopaholic so when it comes to Christmas I go all out, I can't help myself but it is somewhat difficult picking presents for people, you want to make sure they will like them and that cam be somewhat difficult when working with a budget.
Now if you don't already know, I only stock products which I love, which I have tried and tested, I know are of high quality and deliver on the results claimed. Not only does this kind of purchase guarantee a gift that’s been made with oodles of love and dedication to the product, it also means the lucky recipient will no doubt reap the benefits of a unique, special and one of kind gift. Let me help you narrow down a few products out of my Christmas Gift Collection.....
The Stocking Filler
I would budget between £0 - £10 on stocking filler gifts and these could include notepad, pen, chocolate, sweets, socks etc etc.
To add a little luxury, how about a Facial Sheet Mask (£10) or a Nourishing Hand Cream (£10.50) it covers all the basis for a perfect stocking filler gift. I also have these awesome Face Shammies (£5) which are a game changer for any avid skin junkie.
The Secret Santa
I have never taken part in a Secret Santa before but I have researched and apparently the average spend is £13. So you usually participate in office based Secret Santa's so I am recommending the [comfort zone] Tranquillity Oil Gift (£9.10).
This beautiful gift includes a mini sized bottle of the Tranquillity Bath & Body Oil, an aromatic, silky oil for the bath and for the body with nourishing amaranth oil and an exclusive blend of essential oils which promote an immediate sense of relaxation. Advised to be used at the end of the day as a bath or body treatment which calms and alleviates stress perfect for those frantic work days!
Gifts for Her
The most important recipient of them all, the girlfriend, the wife, the sister, the mother, the gifts for her are the all important and must be given some thought, you don't want to be in hot water all Christmas day!
Working on different budgets, I have a few items which will definitely be well received. I'm going to start with the Elizabeth Scarlett Bags starting from £16 for a coin purse up to £28 for a pouch, my best sellers have been the makeup bags which come in at £22.
So many different designs that can be chosen to suit many personalities, every woman can use one of these in their lives, they hold makeup, skincare, jewellery and make the ideal accessory.
Made from luxury velvet fabrics with beautiful embroidered designs, they also come packed in their own little dust bag, you can not go wrong with one of these.
Increasing the budget for that extra special someone, all women love to nest at home and we all love a good scent. The Tranquillity Reed Diffuser (£60) would sit perfectly in any interior with its clean lines and beautiful aromatic scent. It's big in size and mine has lasted over a year in the salon and home.
Gifts for Him
It's a known statistic that men will not act upon something until it becomes a necessity and that is definitely true when it comes to their skin. Men are taking more notice and care of their appearance these days though so why not give them something which let's face it, they would never go out and readily purchase themselves. The /skin regimen/ skincare line is a complete unisex line, its natural aroma has been described as more masculine by many purchasers and the sleek black packaging is definitely admired by men. It's best to start off simple and the /skin regimen/ face cleanser (£22) is the perfect first step.
Not sure on his level of commitment? How about a little sample first, this /skin regimen/ Essential Trio kit (£18) is perfect for those men on the move when travelling for business.
Gifts for Wellness & Selfcare
With so many people opting for products which are more sustainable and are created by small business, finding the perfect gift which ticks all these boxes is quite difficult, don't panic though I've got this covered to! The Blästa Henriët wellbeing collection is made using Natural remedies, traditional craftsmanship and a passion for linen. They work with sustainable linen flax and Cotswold wheat to create self-care products that provide relaxation, natural pain relief and everyday comfort.
The fabric is sourced directly from a mill in Europe but every other part that goes into making the products is done in the UK making these products durable, multipurpose and timeless which are well suited to the lover of sustainability. We have two products available, the Eye Pillow (£17) which is a great accessory for those Yoga lovers and the Wheat Bags (£28) which are larger in size and work wonders for tired muscles, swollen ankles and painful tummies.
The final gift which I can recommend to you is the most important and that is the gift of selfcare. So many people do not take enough time for themselves and a Personal Touch Gift Voucher to experience a treatment in the salon is just what's needed. The voucher will enable your recipient to enjoy a moment to themselves, the chance to unwind after all the hard work, planning and arranging the festive season.
All products will be beautifully wrapped in tissue paper and ribbon making it super easy for you to gift or you can add a luxury gift box to your basket, so all you need to do is unpack and place it under the tree!
Above all, you will be supporting me, a small business in the Cotswolds and that is a gift in itself :)
Enjoy the Festivities and Happy Shopping
