This Christmas Gift Guide is around the theme of luxury gifts, those products which are a little bit more special and have a more luxurious feel to them. I didn’t want this to be an unrealistic gift guide as I’ve read luxury gift idea posts in the past and like most I can’t treat all of my friends and family to very expensive gifts as much as I would love to. I do normally spend quite a lot on my parents and Aaron at Christmas, however there are still other loved ones that I enjoy buying luxurious presents for but can’t spend as much, therefore these are all luxury products that won’t completely break the bank!The first gift idea I want to share with you is from a brand called Lola’s Apothecary who create lovingly handmade products and have a belief in wellness and a holistic approach to life. This is the Delicate Romance Body & Massage Oil which has beautiful scents of rose and geranium with citrus top notes of sweet orange and lemon. All of their fragrances are 100% natural and are composed of the finest pure essential oils. The beautiful glass bottle is a roll on so it’s easy to apply and leaves you smelling amazing, it is also beautifully presented in a signature magnetic gift boxed complete with a hand tied ribbon. I’ve been using Cloud Nine for quite a few years and they are my favourite brand when it comes to hair straighteners. They have released their Limited Edition Gift of Gold Collection for Christmas it’s the most beautiful collection that they have released so far. This is the Cloud Nine Wide Iron Set which has been developed to control and style the thickest and most unruly hair types, with its innovative temperature control and super smooth ceramic plates. This collection has been fused with gold details to contrast the classic matte finish which gives them a luxurious and glamorous look. Included within the beautiful marble-effect gift box is: Gold Edition Carry Case with detachable Heat Resistant Mat which is handy to keep the dressing table protected, Gold Edition Paddle Brush and Croc Clips. This would make such an amazing gift for Christmas and I cannot recommend this brand enough as I’ve been using their straighteners for years without fault, and this collection is truly gorgeous.Another product that I’ve been using for years is the Magnitone Vibra-Sonic Cleansing Brush, so I couldn’t not feature them in my gift guide as they are an amazing addition to any skincare routine. They have released their Limited Edition Barefaced Shimmer Collection which is available in two new colours; Rose Gold and Serenity Blue. It removes dead skin cells, makeup and impurities from pores, eliminates excess oil and tones the skin. It uses Vibra-Sonic technology which is a combination of pulsed vibrations and sonic oscillations to massage, tone and deep-cleanse your skin leaving your skin clearer and brighter. Their new set includes their Stimulator Brush Head which enhances skin stimulation and improves the absorption of skincare products. You only need to use this for 60 seconds in conjunction with your normal face cleansing products so it’s quick and easy to use. If you know someone who wants to get more into a skincare routine or hasn’t tried out cleansing brushes before then this would be perfect as this has revolutionised my skincare routine.The next two gift ideas are from The English Beagle who are a new online shopping site which champions independent British producers. They celebrate the love of family and gift giving providing beautiful heartfelt gifts, all of the products featured on The English Beagle are deigned and manufactured within the UK and it’s great to support independence businesses. The first product is the French Lavender Bath Essence from Plum & Ashby which contains natural ingredients of soothing marigold oil and coconut oil. The lavender scent is beautiful and a small amount poured into a bath would be very relaxing, perfect for a little pamper night. Then there is the Orange & Shredded Cinnamon Candle from Beauty Scents which is the perfect scent for Christmas and I love that you can see the orange and shredded cinnamon within the candle.I personally don’t know anyone who doesn’t love Zatchels who are a company that create handmade leather satchels. All of their bags are loving handmade in England and are the go-to company for on-trend leather bags and accessories available in a myriad of colours and finishes. Most of my family and friends own the traditional satchel so I thought I would feature one of their backpacks as it’s a little more unique and something that those you know are less likely to already own. This is their City Backpack in Pastel Pink in a soft leather which is gorgeous. It’s such high quality and everything is extremely well-made even down to the stitching and the small details. What I love is that even though it is a backpack it also comes with a detachable shoulder strap therefore making it even more versatile as it can also been worn as a traditional shoulder bag. They are available in such a wide range of different colours that there is something for everyone and they’re a must-have for any wardrobe. If you’re looking for a beautiful high quality bag for a gift this Christmas then definitely have a look at the full range of bags available from Zatchels.The last gift idea is this beautiful soft pink leather Goals Journal from Find Me a Gift. If you’ve never heard of Find Me a Gift before they have gifts for literally everyone no matter what the occasion, they are there to ensure that every need is catered for. Whether you’re looking for a special Christmas gift for a friend of a secret santa gift they have you covered. This Goals Journal comes wrapped in tissue paper in a lovely black presentation box and would be a lovely gift for someone who enjoys writing, wants to start a diary or just loves beautiful stationary. As it has 250 plain cream laid paper pages it can be used for anything, personally I would use it to plan my current goals and new years resolutions that I have for the upcoming year.
They are all of my luxury gift ideas and I think that they would all make such amazing gifts, and even though they are more expensive as they are luxurious they’re not ridiculously expensive unlike other gift guides that I have read. I hope that this has helped you with ideas and inspiration, and keep an eye out for my other Christmas gift guides going up very soon!
