Gifts For Her: Fragrance, Beauty + Homeware

Tuesday, October 24, 2017
How is it almost Christmas time! It feels like last Christmas was only a few months ago and yet here we are again. I’ve already published a few gift ideas posts which you can check out but today’s post is focused on gifts for herald the home - whether that’s your mum, aunties, friends or partner. Thanks to Betsy Benn, Find Me A Gift, Mad Beauty and others for the wonderful gifts!

*Betsy Benn Personalised Constellation Christmas Bauble (£10) 
Personalised gifts are some of my favourite to give and also receive as they are typically very special and unique; this gorgeous personalised bauble is no different. It comes nicely packaging, it’s wooden and it is personalised with up to seven family members names (or friends names if you wanted to create a personalised gift for a group of your close friends!). The Christmas bauble is so incredibly beautiful, I adore the design and it will look amazing on our tree this Christmas. You may already know this about me but I love stars, star designs and constellations so this is the perfect Christmas bauble for me, especially with family names on it which is a cute bonus. I think it would make an amazing gift for family or friends especially with new little ones as some of my friends have.

I cannot recommend Betsy Benn products enough, definitely check out the site for more beautiful Christmas gift ideas! There are other wooden personalised Christmas baubles to choose from as well as personalised aprons, clocks, mugs and prints, all of which are beautifully designed and would make amazing, unique gifts this Christmas. I was kindly given a discount for my readers to use on Christmas gifts if you want to - you can get 10% off your order with the code: ofbeautyand10.
*Goal Journal via Find Me A Gift (£45.99) 
It’s coming to the end of the year and before we know it, it will be 2018 which is an equally terrifying and renewing prospect as with a new year comes the chance for change and new starts. Diaries and journals are perfect Christmas gifts in preparation for the upcoming new year and this one is especially gorgeous! It’s a pink leather journal with gold text on the front including the quote ‘achieve your dream life’ which I love. It also comes in a gift box so it’s practically a pre-wrapped present already. It isn’t lined inside, there are just blank pages - perfect for bullet journaling or just writing down your weekly or monthly goals inside as well as notes and thoughts. A fantastic gift idea and it is currently on sale for £36.99 as I’m writing this (24/10/2017).
*Ciate 2016 Advent Calendar (£24.40) via Perfume Click
I have always had an advent calendar but chocolate just does cut it so but beauty advent calendar do! I've tried a couple and I think they are a genius idea and there are so many more now than there were a few year ago. One of the most beautiful from last year is this gorgeous advent calendar from Ciate. The packaging is just gorgeous, it contains 24 items from polishes to a nail file and treatments. There are mostly mini sizes but there's a mystery full sized polish within the calendar too. As it's last years calendar, the price is fantastic on Perfume Click so you are getting so much for your money as well as a little present to open everyday! The products come in individual cute boxes for each day, you can see the inside of the calendar in the short video below!
*Monsoon Rose Gold EDP Fragrance (£24, 50ml) 
Fragrances are fantastic, practical and also safe gifts to give so if you are unsure what to buy someone, then with fragrances you really can’t go wrong. This fragrance from Monsoon not only comes in a cute box but it has a gorgeous bottle which is very photogenic (as a blogger, I always think of these things!) and it has a great price point. I think this fragrance would be great for teens, young adults and twenty somethings but obviously fragrances can be for any age! It is a great all round fragrance, it isn’t too strong and the longevity is pretty good for the price point. I’ve already reviewed this fragrance on my blog so you can read the full review (here) if you want. A great gift idea as is the Lovelily fragrance for younger girls and teens.
*Cheerz Paperback Photo Album (from £17)
I've worked with the lovely people at Cheerz over the past few years and I think this photo album is one of the best products I've been lucky enough to receive from them! The paperback album is priced from £17 and it will increase depending on how many photos/pages you add to the album. The front cover can be changed in terms of the shapes, colour and the cover photo - I used a photo from a a trip to Copenhagen a few years ago!

I filled my photo album with collages of as many photos as I could fit into it from the family holidays we've had over the past few years such as Venice, Rome, Russia, Sweden and more as we have a lot on SD cards but not so many that are printed. I think photo albums and photo gifts make some of the nicest presents as they are filled with lovely memories to look back on and to laugh, cry and smile at all over again. Cheerz also make amazing photo magnets too as well as memory boxes, photo prints, invitations and more. The Cheerz app is so incredibly quick and easy to use (as well as free) so it only takes a few minutes to create a special gift for someone this Christmas! To get 10% off your order (over £20), use the code: CSNGNS.
*Tatty Devine Peg Necklace via Rock My Vintage (£19 - SALE)
Now onto something a little more unusual but gorgeous! I love this cute wooden peg necklace from Tatty Devine via Rock My Vintage which is a fantastic vintage clothing and accessories site. Tatty Devine is a brand that has been on my radar for ages but I've never bought anything from them however all of their pieces are so unique and cute. I love the design, it isn't too long which is great for me and it's perfect with jeans, a white tee or chunky jumper and ankle boots. The necklace is currently out of stock but hopefully it will be back in stock soon and there are so many others to choose from including more Tatty Devine items. Check out their mid-season sale!
*Showpony Clarissa Eco Shopper via Rock My Vintage (£6 - SALE) 
Over the past couple of years, instead of using gift bags, I've been using gift boxes and tote/shopper bags as gift bags - they also make great additional presents. We use tote bags all of the time for shopping, recycling and generally for storage so they'd make a great practical present or gift bag. I love this one from Rock My Vintage as it has a vintage bag printed onto the shopper bag which is something I haven't seen before. It's printed onto 100% organic cotton and it looks so much nicer and is far better quality than the ones I have now!
*Amphora Aromatics Orange & Clove Essential Oil Reed Diffuser Kit (£13.50)
I love candles but I know that not everyone does so diffusers are a great alternative! I was kindly sent one of the new diffusers from Amphora Aromatics; I have the gorgeous 'orange and clove' fragrance which is perfect for the festive season! Most diffusers around this price point look quite cheap and they aren't very strong but this one is the opposite as it looks so nice, it smells amazing and the scent is quite strong too!

I also adore the packaging, it would make a lovely gift for those who don't really like candles, like my mum. There's a wide range of scents to choose from such as rosemary and thyme, tea tree and geranium and lavender, the latter is one I definitely need as I love anything lavender scented. I'd definitely recommend this diffuser as a gift this Christmas or just for yourself.
*Elizabeth Shaw Biscuits & Chocolates (from £1.79) 
A staple in any British household at this time of the year and excessively over the festive period are chocolates and biscuits! Elizabeth Shaw is a brand famous for their gorgeous chocolates which I've featured on my blog previously but they've just released a range of delicious biscuits in a variety of flavours from mint & cocoa, raisin & cocoa and raisin & hazelnut to coconut & hazelnut.

I received a package full of biscuits from Elizabeth Shaw this morning and I'll be honest and say that the boxes are definitely lighter now...oops. I received the 'raisin & cocoa' biscuits which are so yummy, the 'raisin and hazelnut' biscuits which are even more delicious then the 'salted caramel crisp' which are our favourites from the biscuits I was sent. Lastly, I received the 'milk chocolate twists' which contain milk chocolate and hazelnut - my favourite combination ever! The biscuits should be available to buy now but the chocolates will be out in November.
*Mad Beauty Lightbulb Moment Nail Polish Duo 
I have loved Mad Beauty products for a while; I was kindly sent a few products back in July. So many of their products would be amazing stocking filler gift ideas and their gift sets would be great too! The nail polish duo would be a perfect stock filler idea for children or teens!

*Mad Beauty Bubble Bath Crackers (£14.99)
Each year my friends come round and we have a Christmas catch up and exchange presents as well as  eat far too much so these Christmas crackers will be perfect for a pre-christmasy day day...The crackers are pink and glittery with a 50ml bubble bath in each one from cranberry, blueberry and strawberry to watermelon and passion fruit. I think they are a fantastic gift idea to share out between friends or together as a set. Mad Beauty has an amazing range of gifts, I have my eye on the beautiful Disney sets too!
*English Provender Plum & Apple Chutney (£1.90, 300g)
Last year I included a few items from English Provender in a gift guide and I have a few products in this years gift guide too. However, the difference is the new packaging which I absolutely love and it looks like a more beautiful gift now! The plum and apple chutney contains a secret blend of spices that is a perfect Christmas Day or Boxing Day table addition.

*English Provender Hot Chilli & Red Pepper (£1.90, 300g)
This one would be perfect for my dad as he adores spices, spicy food and chilli so he'll be very happy with this! I think they are great but unusual stocking fillers or they could easily be added to a food hamper gift. It contains jalapeños and red scotch bonnet chilli so it's not for me as I cannot handle anything spicy but I think most would love this chutney!

*English Provender Caramelised Red Onion Chutney (£1.90, 300g)
Lastly, one my aunties would like at this time of the year! I'm personally not a massive fan of onion chutney but my family love it, especially on crackers with cheese so you can see how it would be ideal for the festive season. You can find their products on Ocado, Waitrose, Tesco and Sainsbury's.
*Thomas Kent Portobello Hare Clock Via Red Candy (£24)
I think I've saved one of the most beautiful gifts for last and it's this stunning mantle piece or desk clock by Thomas Kent via Red Candy. I was lucky enough to work with Red Candy back in April - they are an amazing site for homeware and gifts. I think this adorable clock would make a lovely home gift!

There are so many clocks to choose from but I think the Thomas Kent clocks are some of the most beautiful, this one in particular. I adore the hare and woodland themed design and it fits with our living room perfectly. It's also a great size, the base is flat so it can be placed anywhere and it just looks so gorgeous! I know friends and family would love to receive this clock; it would make such a nice house warming gift too. Check out Red Candy for amazing and unusual Christmas gifts!
