Luxury Christmas Gifts

Thursday, December 19, 2019
Today's post is sadly my last Christmas gift guide of the year (where has the time gone?) and it's my luxury gift guide. Thanks to the lovely and generous people over at Nordgreen, Lace and Favour and Yes I Want It for the gorgeous, luxury gifts within today's post.

Also don't forget to enter my latest giveaway on twitter for your chance to win a set of three Real Techniques makeup sponges and a Harry Potter bath bomb. The giveaway ends on the 21st so you still have time to enter - it is UK only. I will also have a few new giveaways which will be live in the new year as well so make sure you follow me on twitter (@ofbeautyand) to find out when the giveaways are live.
*Nordgreen Philosopher Watch - Gold (£169)
It wouldn't be fair of me to choose a favourite product from today's post but if I was pushed to answer, I would choose this beautiful watch from Nordgreen. I've been lucky enough to review one of their watches previously on my blog and I also cannot recommend the Native watch and Infinity watch enough along with one this! I have the gold, 40mm option but it also comes in gunmetal, rose gold and silver as well as a range of leather and nylon options in a variety of shades. You can also purchase this watch, along with additional straps within a gorgeous gift bundle.
The watch comes in a sleek gift box so aesthetically it would make for a beautiful and luxe gift this Christmas! I have always adored a rose gold jewellery and watches but since receiving a few gorgeous gold pieces from Daisy Jewellery this year, I've started to love the way gold jewellery and watches look as they're always elegant and timeless.

I have the Native watch which is similar to this one but one of the main differing design aspects that I love with the Philosopher watch is the conical shaped and elevated watch case which makes the watch stand out subtly, compared to my other watches. I also like the larger face, minimal style and the comfort, despite the weight and size of the watch.

Nordgreen watches aren't just beautiful pieces to own or gift to someone special, as they are also a way for you to give to charity as well with their Giving Back Program. For each watch purchase, the customer can choose from three charities to give back to with a donation on their behalf from Nordgreen! You have less than one day left to order in time of christmas so go, go, go! 
*Amara Rose Gold Crystal Vine Of Leaves Bracelet (£45)
Sticking with the theme of beautiful accessories, I was very kindly sent a couple of jewellery pieces from the lovely people over at Lace and Favour, including this divine rose gold bracelet. The bracelet came in a sleek gift box and the bracelet itself is so beautifully, I'm sure it will be a lovely surprise for anyone to receive this Christmas! As well as the gorgeous rose gold option, it's also available in gold and silver.

I love the vine of leaves design as it seems to flow down the bracelet. I also love the combination of the sparkly cubic zirconia crystals and the gleaming rose gold metal as it looks almost glistening and metallic next to the skin. The bracelet is definitely a little too large for my teeny tiny wrists but I think for most people it would fit really well.
*Ivory and Co Bentley Cubic Zirconia Wedding Bracelet (£50) 
The second and final item from Lace and Favour is a sweet silver and cubic zirconia bracelet which like the first gorgeous piece, comes in a sleek gift box. This second bracelet is also the same length as the first at 18cm but it is available in a short 16.5cm length as well which would probably fit me far better. The bracelet is rhodium plated which means that it has an anti-tarnish coating for more durability and longevity.

The rose gold Lace and Favour bracelet is beautifully sparkly but this one is even more so especially when it catches the light - then it seems to shine! Lace and Favour have a wide range of wedding jewellery, wedding veils and accessories to choose from but many of their gorgeous jewellery items would make great wedding as well as christmas gifts too, in my opinion, such as the two stunning bracelets I've featured in today's post.
*Daisy London x Estee Lalonde Luna Necklace (£99)
Earlier this year I was lucky enough to receive a couple of pieces from the first Daisy London x Estee Lalonde collection and I still adore both pieces (especially the Sunburst Shield Necklace) so I was very happy to be able to choose another item for today's luxury gift guide. The second collection created by Estee is equally as gorgeous as the first with the same themes of celestial and organic shapes combined with beautifully balanced pieces that can be worn alone or layered together.
The Luna necklace is 18ct gold plated sterling silver and can be adjusted to the lengths of 16 inches to 18 inches. The necklace, as with the other heavenly pieces I've received from Daisy London, came wonderfully packaged with the magazine, tissue paper, gift bag and a small gift box so you have everything you need to present a special gift this Christmas.

The necklace design is so beautiful, I love the moon symbol and the raised edges of the necklace. The length is perfect and it looks even better when combined with the short chain from Daisy London. I never used to love gold jewellery or layering necklaces but the divine pieces from Daisy London and Estee have changed my mind! I can't wait to try more from the range - I have my eye on a ring and earrings so hopefully they'll be in the sale soon! Check out Daisy London to see more of the collection and their range of fantastic jewellery gifts.
*Positive Message Bulb and Lamp (£44.99)
Last but not least for my luxury gift guide is a homeware item which is unlike anything I've seen before and I think it would make a fantastic gift for those who've moved house, students or any of your gift recipients who are redecorating or renovating. I love to receive practical gifts, especially homeware gifts and the more unique the better so this lamp and bulb tick all of the presents buying boxes. I have the 'happy' option but there are lots of others to choose from as well such as, home, love, dream and live.
Each bulb shines with a different colour and the 'happy' option has a warm orange glow to it which I love! The bulb is a unique, vintage looking Edison bulb which I'm always drawn to as it makes the lamp stand out and become a feature in the room. I haven't found a bulb like this one before with mini neon lighting inside of it and I'm sure that most gift recipients wouldn't have seen anything like it either!

The bulb is unique itself but as is the stand that it comes with as it is composed of copper and marble! I love the combination of the almost vintage copper pipe and Edison bulb with the sleek light grey marble and the orange neon lightning - it's all such an interesting combination. I currently have the lamp in our home office and I love the way it looks on my desk especially as I can add little extras such as candles on and around the base.
I haven't been able to get a great photograph of the lamp in action as it is very bright (it has LED filaments which means that it will last much longer at 25,000 hours of light) but hopefully you can get an idea of the brightness and how the lamp works in the video below (make sure you play it on the 1080p). Overall, I'm so happy with the lamp, particularly as I've wanted a change from the regular old lamp I had before and now the space looks so much brighter and more contemporary, rather than a slightly stuffy office! Make sure you order by 1pm tomorrow on Yes I Want It to get your delivery in time for christmas!

  8. I love all of the items in your guide especially the Estee x Daisy necklace! It's almost a given that I have to buy something from Daisy just because we share a name and their jewelery are all stunning! I think that happy light should be in my bedroom to force my head into being happy more often! xD
