Ho Ho Ho,

Do you have a loved one or a friend who always loves to have fresh flowers in their home? Well Pop Up Blooms have the perfect gifts. You can choose to purchase their subscription service which offers; A bucket or box of flowers which you can arrange yourself, a hand-made tied bouquet or a flower wrap to arrange yourself. Each come with a flower menu and helpful hints and tips to create your own beautiful arrangement. You can choose between 3 and 6 month’s subscription so it’s the gift that keeps on giving. Each option is chosen by a lovely florist and includes a choice of seasonal blooms, foliage and lots of british grown stems. Starting price from £90.
You can’t go wrong with a Calendar as a gift! Especially when you can personalise it with your own photos. Asda Photo Online have some wonderful gift ideas including this A3 Personalised Wall Calendar which is £15. I like the idea of using family photos on their birthday month.
I am also loving this Photo Slate which is available in different sizes, the one in the photo above is 19cm x 19cm and costs just £12. Personalise it with any photo of your choice and it makes the most beautiful Christmas gift. Perfect to keep on a desk or on display somewhere in the house. The finish is really nice and it looks super special. I know I’d definitely be happy to receive a gift like this.
Give the gift of calm with these beautiful smelling goodies from The One Co Cheshire. “Calm” is their best selling signature blend of essential oils. I can confirm it smells just like a spa, it’s so relaxing and comforting. Great for anyone who suffers with poor sleep, anxiety or just wants to kick back and relax. The Candle One is £20 and available in 3 signature scents and what I like about this is that you can buy refills for them once you’ve finished! The Bathsalt One is £10 and is a beautiful combination of their essential oils, Dead Sea salt and Epsom salts, perfect for a soothing bath. The Calm Bubble Bar is £3.50 and creates a bath full of lovely bubbles with the added benefit of aromatherapy.
Have you got family who live up north or who used to? Or maybe you know someone who loves spending time there. For The Love Of The North have some absolutely gorgeous gifts. All made with love by artists and sourced in the North East. I completely adore this cute little Wor Angel. The Angel of the North is one of the regions most famous landmarks. This one is made of resin and also hand painted. It would make the perfect gift to keep at home on the mantle piece or in the study. Available for £18 and there are a few other designs too, as well as lots of other wonderful gift ideas.

I for one would not be upset if I received some of these delicious sweeties for Christmas from The Tuck Shop. They would make the perfect gift for anyone in the family! These sweets are also vegan friendly and contain a huge mix so everyone will be happy! Available in 200g for £3.99, 800g for £9.99 and 1200g for £13.99 (believe me when I say the biggest bag is HUGE)
If you know someone who’s whimsical then there’s a good chance they are going to love everything from TheMushroomBabes. Whimsical and body positive mushroom nymphs. There’s lots to choose from including pins, colouring books, stickers and prints. I absolutely love this Yoga Poses Poster which is available in A4 £12 (Recycled paper) and A3 £15 (Sustainably sourced uncoated paper)
If you know anyone who’s breastfeeding then this would be such a special gift to give them. It’s the Christy Ring which is £90 from Eternally Cherished. You can choose the colours and you get a breast milk ring kit sent out to you in the post. It’s such a lovely way to celebrate or remember your breastfeeding journey. You can add locks of hair too which is what I’ve done so I have all three of my babies hair and my breast milk in my ring.
Quite a few of my friends and family are really into their wax melts now (they make me look normal) Peachy Rain have the most gorgeous selection of wax melts and burners. I’m obsessed with this Little House Ceramic Burner which costs £12. You can grab 10% the burners and wax melts with my brand rep code LAURA10.
Something special for the ladies in your life. This is a brand for women by women. They employ all women including 3 widowed women in Lahore who would have had struggled to support themselves.
Candy & Lola create luxury handmade straw baskets and hats. The materials used are super ethical and they use natural sea grass which is then dried in the sun and dyed to achieve the desired colours. Each product is custom made and so is only available on pre order.

If you like to gift perfume and makeup then you’ll love these from Perfect Perfumes. Mystery fragrance baubles £18 and Makeup crackers £10. I love that you don’t need to wrap them (I’m bad at wrapping presents). I’ve tried some fragrances from Perfect perfumes before and they have been absolutely on point. If you know your family and friends favourite fragrances then ask Tara and see if she can find a match for you.
