Today I’m bringing you a gift guide of goodies and treats that I’ve recently either loved or things that I wouldn’t mind unwrapping come Christmas day 😉
It’s always good to leave a few subtle hints around isn’t it?
Plus I had a great incentive to write up this years gift list because the team at Vorwerk asked me to take part in their #AllIWantForChristmas campaign, designed to uncover what is on the ultimate Christmas wishlists of some of the UK’s top parenting and lifestyle bloggers in the run up to this year’s festivities.
I didn’t need to include any Vorwerk products, however you may notice that my first option is indeed a Vorwerk product. So without further ado let me tell you about each of the products and let you find out how to win your very own copy of the much loved Bad Moms movie.
1. Kobold VR200 Robot Vacuum £749.00
A vacuum that hoovers automatically? Erm.. yes please. I’m not one for wantting cleaning or household products as a gift, but this is more gadget and it’s a lifestyle changing one at that. I love that the robot vacuum memorises the space (preventing it from toppling down the stairs for example) and makes sure to hoover up all the areas around the home without needing me to prompt it at all. Being nice and small it can get to those hard to reach areas like under the bed as well which don’t often get a hoover!
2. Hand Iced Biscuits by Biscuiteers from £6.00
A sweet treat is an essential Christmas gift, and it doesn’t get cuter than a tin of biscuits lovingly iced by hand from Biscuiteers. Single biscuits can be bought from around £6.00, but for that wow factor make sure to get a tin full of biscuits. And with some great Christmas themed biscuits such as The Nutcracker version above or The Snowman and The Snowdog collection there is something perfectly festive for whoever you need to buy a gift for. And with their London based stores open until 5pm on Christmas Eve, it’s also great for those last minute panic buys!
I apologise in advance, because you’ll be seeing this bag a lot on my blog. In fact you may recognise it from my post on Brussels. It is the most amazingly stylish bag I think I own, and one that will last a lifetime. And it’s so well sized. Called the traveller bag it’s inspired by the camera bags of yesteryear. This makes it perfect for carrying around my Nikon DSLR as well as all of my essentials such as my phone, my large purse and all the things I require for my toddler. You might think it isn’t big enough to hold too much but it really is. Bottles of water? Not a problem. Food? easy. It’s just perfectly sized for every day practicality as well as being pretty damn good looking. It comes in a range of colours, and you can choose to personalise the bag with embossing making your bag unique.
4. Bad Moms DVD from £9.99
Hands up if you haven’t watched this film already? As soon as it was released at the cinema I arranged a mum date with a friend and headed there as fast as I could. It’s a great movie and certainly one I think many mums can relate to. It’s the female version of The Hangover which isn’t surprising because it’s by the same people. The DVD doesn’t actually come out until Boxing Day however the film is available to own on early digital release from the 19th December. I’m giving you the chance to win a copy of the DVD, so if you fancy the opportunity of it landing on your door step just enter the free rafflecoptor below.
5. Rose Gold Oral-B Genius 9000 £140.00 (currently £109.99)
I love anything rose gold, and yes this includes my toothbrush. But this particular brush is just a technological dream which is probably why it’s won the ‘Which? best buy of 2016’. It can tell by the pressure of your brushing whether your brushing too hard and will adjust the speed to make sure you get a superior clean without damaging your teeth. With dentist inspired brushes it’s also clinically proven to help whiten your teeth. The best thing about this toothbrush however is that it works alongside a facial recognition app on your smartphone to help guide you to give a full clean, as after research it was discovered that 80% of people frequently leave out whole zones in their mouths when they clean. A great hygiene product I think!
6. Lucille Bow Satin Heels by SJP £270.00
These shoes are just beautiful, and it’s no surprise as they’ve been designed but the shoe queen herself- Sarah Jessica Parker. For designer shoes I think the price is actually affordable, which is a nice change to some of the extremely high designer prices out there. I just love the grey satin of the shoes which from the front look beautiful but understated, and then from behind it’s like ‘pow’ -full feminine statement. They’re just beautiful.
And there you have it my gift guide for the year. Hopefully it can help inspire some last minute purchases. Or else why not keep an eye on the products for deals in the post Christmas sales. You never know!
Also don’t forget to enter the competition to win the Bad Moms DVD. Good luck!
