Last Minute Gift Guide #1 ft. Prezzybox + Teapigs

Sunday, December 10, 2017
December seems to be going by so quickly already and before we know it, it will be the big day so if you haven't finished your present shopping then you'll need to be quick! If you are struggling for gift ideas then hopefully this post will be useful as I have so great gift options for tea lovers, commuters, sport enthusiasts, christmassy homeware fanatics or those who have something special to commemorate.

Thanks so much to the lovely people at Teapigs for the amazing surprise package as well as the equally fantastic and generous people over at Bolsius, Prezzybox and Sock Shop for the amazing and wide ranging gift ideas for this post. I already have a few gift guides on my blog which you can read if you want even more gift options as well as a few discount codes.
*Teapigs Keep Cup (£15.99)
Let's start with one of the most useful items in this post and something that I'd wanted for a while, it's a Keep Cup! They are glass coffee cups that are re-useable, durable, recyclable at the end of it's life and they are made from non-toxic materials. I have the medium size which is 12oz or 340ml and the cork edition.

I love the design of this coffee (or tea) cup that's great for on the go as the lid is individually hand fitted to blown glass so it shouldn't leak. I think it would make a perfect gift for those who commute to work as you can take your delicious Teapigs tea on the go within the world first barista standard re-useable cup! I cannot recommend it enough, I've been using mine already and it's amazing.
*Teapigs Mini Packs Gift Set (£13.50)
Next up is a gift idea that is perfect for those who want to try a range of tea including english breakfast, strong earl grey, mao feng green tea, peppermint leaves, chamomile and super fruit teas. You receive two tea temples of each flavour in the mini Teapigs packaging so you could even separate the flavours and give them individually as stocking fillers if you wanted to or keep a couple for yourself and add the rest to a food hamper. I've tried the peppermint leaves tea as well as the chamomile tea, both of which I really like especially the peppermint leaves tea which I cannot recommend enough.

*Teapigs Selection Box (£9.50)
A slightly cheaper option that would be ideal as a secret santa gift as it contains ten flavours so your gift recipient is bound to find so many flavours that they'll love as well as some they haven't tried before. The options include english breakfast, strong earl grey, mao feng green tea, peppermint leaves, chamomile, super fruit, honey bush & rooibos, chai tea, lemon & ginger and liquorice & peppermint, the latter I love!

In the set you will receive one individually wrapped teabag of each flavour which means that it's great for those who haven't tried many Teapigs flavours or who haven't tried any more unique tea flavours in general. It would be great on it's own as a cute little gift, as part of a food hamper or as a stocking filler for the tea lovers in your life.
*Teapigs Spiced Winter Red Tea (£4.49)
Is there anything more cosy at this time of the year that a hot mug of delicious festive spiced tea? The answer is no. I tried this flavour last year or the year before (all of the years are blending into one, the older I become) and loved it. I love anything that has a cinnamon or spiced flavour so this was always going to be a hit for me and it would make an ideal stocking filler this christmas.

*Teapigs Chai Tea (£3.99)
Each one of these packets contain 15 biodegradable tea temples so there are almost just enough for the limbo period between Christmas Day and new year when no-one knows what is going on and the nation is in a state of confusion about whether the shops are open or not. I have tried chai tea before but not from Teapigs so I am excited to try it this festive season!

*Teapigs Apple & Cinnamon Tea (£3.99)
As I said previously, I adore cinnamon so this tea is perfect for me especially as they are all caffeine free so they are the ideal hot drink to have before bed. I tried the mini pack of this tea a while ago (the mini packs of two tea temples are great for trialing new flavours) and loved it. I love Teapigs tea and as a bonus for this time of the year, it's the prettiest packed tea out there!
*Bolsius Candles - Decolight 
I've reviewed a few items from Bolsius but these have to be the cutest and most festive, although they're all fantastic for the super low price! I was kindly sent these two Christmasy candles both of which will be perfect in any home at this time of the year. One of which is gingerbread and the other is cherry scented; I definitely prefer the gingerbread candle as it's filled with a vanilla and subtle gingerbread scent! The best thing is definitely the festive design which could be reused for tea lights when you have finished the candle. They would make lovely festive stocking fillers!
*Sock Shop Storm Bloc (£13.99)
Next up are ideal stocking fillers for those who love hiking as they are tough, durable cotton rich sports socks for men that have elasticated arch supports, cushioning and they have a high tensile strength. Additionally, they are 46x more durable than a standard branded sport sock with a lifetime guarantee!

*Sock Shop Anti-Abrasion Durability Sock (£9.99)
Next up is similar but a little cheaper; however they have the same amazing 46x durability than a standard branded sports sock! They are quick drying, high flex and have low moisture absorption. If you have any hikers in your life then either of these would be perfect. They also have womens versions too.
*Memory Box from Prezzybox (£19.99 - SALE)
Last but not least for this post (although I have more coming very soon!) would make a wonderful gift for so many people! It would be great for gift recipients who've just been on a special holiday, who have just had a baby or are celebrating an important birthday or anniversary. It would also make a unique and special graduation, Christmas or wedding gift.

I have a memory box, although it's no where near as organised as this or as sectioned. I love all of the containers and sections that come with the wooden memory box as it means that you can make sure that your keepsakes are safe and organised. I know so many friends and family members that would adore this memory box and I cannot recommend it enough, especially as it's currently on sale as I'm writing this (10/12/2017).
