Ok, so it may be a little self indulgent to share my Christmas wishlist on my blog, but hey, it’s my blog and I can do what I want too! I have created a few gift guides for Christmas 2017 – you can check them out here if you fancy a look. But this one is purely for me, what I would like – though I am sure that the things on here will appeal to a lot of people. Here goes!
I am going to start off with a basic one there, but for me you can’t go wrong with chocolate as a present (unless it’s dark chocolate than yuk!) I love Thornton’s chocolates and my absolute favourite is the Cappuccino ones (in case you were wondering). I love boxes of chocolates as Christmas presents and it’s something you can open immediately and share with everyone, which makes it a little present for everyone there.
I am still a fan of World of Warcraft after all these years, and though I did have a Steelseries WoW gaming mouse, sadly it is no longer working so I need a new one. I have seen several that I love and I am keeping fingers crossed I am lucky enough to get one for Christmas. I really love the look of this one (in case any of my family are reading this…)
Olverum Bath Oil*
I love getting a lovely hot bath, not only is it super relaxing but the heat helps with the pain I suffer with caused by my Fibromyalgia, so soaking in a hot bath is really amazing for me. Add in Olverum Bath Oil and you are on to a winner – it smells divine. I cannot accurately describe the smell to you, I don’t have the words! I already have a bottle of this, but I definitely need more so that I never ever run out of this magical stuff. I have found that it not only helps me relax but it really does help sooth my sore muscles. And I love that it makes my skin feel super soft too. Olverum Bath Oil is available from Liberty, Conran, Harvey Nichols and Fenwick. It’s available in 3 sizes, 250ml (50 baths), 125ml (25 baths) and travel (9 baths) which are £53, £29 and £19 respectively.
Ok, ok this is probably me repeating myself seeing as I have already done a Gift Guide for Bookworms and a more specific Harry Potter themed Gift Guide too but seriously you can not have enough books. And my wishlist for books is so long it’s starting to be a bit crazy.
I am really not sure what to say, I do love random Tshirts, Alice in Wonderland themed things are always a hit, for my birthday I was given a “Stay Weird” Alice in Wonderland tshirt and I love it, and this one here “We are all mad here” is gorgeous too. I live in jeans and my Dr Martens so random tshirts are always going to work with that.
Travel Electric Toothbrush
Ok so this might be one strange Christmas Gift, but I love my electric toothbrush, as issues with my hands and their lack of strength etc means that I have to have an electric toothbrush rather than a manual one. I love this Travel Electric Toothbrush* by Sonic Chic, as it’s will be great for when we are away for a few days. Taking my ‘proper’ electric toothbrush is a bit of a faff and this is perfect. It even comes with a spare head and the battery too!
I struggle with really dry skin, and on my hands it is especially bad. It can crack and bleed and feels sore – the cold weather definitely makes it worse. So something like Dr. Organic Hemp Oil Intensive Hand and Nail Treatment* is a real treat for me. I also like the Skin Lotion*, which is also available.
Who doesn’t love shoes? I always fall in love with shoes when I am out shopping but by the time I find a pair I like that acutally comes in my size they look more like canoes than shoes and I feel sad. Shoes look so much nicer when they are in tiny sizes. One of the few exceptions I have found to this rule is Dr Martens – they are gorgeous no matter what the size – I love my new Rainbow Glitter DMs and I would love another pair of DMs maybe something fancy like these ones embroidered with roses.
7th Heaven Goodies*
Now as well as a bath, I am partial to a bit of pampering, and I love the facemask from 7th Heaven. Not only are there so many to choose from – so you can find the one that suits your skin type, but they are cruelty-free too! There are a range of 7th Heaven hampers available including a “Basket full of Goodies” which has the most amazing range of face masks and even a couple of bath bombs too!
I love getting nice post (which basically means any post that isn’t a bill!) so a monthly subscription box is the perfect present for me. I love that it spreads the excitement over the next few months. There is literally a subscription box for everything – I love book themed boxes (I subscribe to FairyLoot myself as it’s just amazing). But there are food, craft, and all sorts of fandom themed boxes out there. Cratejoy is a fab place to start looking for subscription boxes.
Do you like the sound of any of these? What’s top of your Christmas wishlist this year?
