Christmas Gift Guide 2015

 Hello Daydreamers!

*This post contains PR samples, however all opinions are as always, my own :)

The time has come, It's no longer too early to mention it...

Well it's nearly Christmas, but we're officially on countdown now and as Christmas brings us the opportunity to buy items for loved ones, I decided to put together a gift guide. I've tried to include something for everyone whether it be your best friend or your pet dog!

So, here are my top picks...

For the sentimental/blogger/writer
This 5 year 2 line a day diary would be a thoughtful gift for any keen writer. It's available to purchase from The Present Finder which is a lovely online gift shop where you'll find gifts to suit any personality.
  The present finder website says:

"This little diary is enough to document a five year period in anyone's life. It's a lovely way to record and revisit parts of your life that you might have otherwise forgotten."

 I think this gift would suit anyone, particularly those who are sentimental and are too busy to write a full page diary daily. I also think this would make a fabulous gift for a blogger- since we're all so keen to document and write!
The book itself is Columbia blue in colour; making it suitable for males and females. The pages are gold-edged, giving the book a well-finished look and each page is thick enough for ink to not seep through. Overall this little compact diary feels durable and looks classy which makes it the ideal unique gift.

For the stationary lover

Oh my oh my, I absolutely LOVE this set, I think it's just so luxurious! 
I'm gifting this to my Mum because she (like me) is a stationary addict and I always buy her cute pens as stocking fillers. This set is from Kate Spade and it's presented in a classy cream and black box which I think makes it extra special. 
 The description on AMARA gifts says:

"Bring chic style to your work space with this Strike Gold pen set from Kate Spade New York. Presented in a cream & black box it includes six black ink ballpoint pens that are metallic gold in colour. A fabulous gift idea for any keen writer, this set is perfect to pair with more stylish stationery also available from Kate Spade New York."
AMARA gifts is a luxury online gift shop and much like many of the items available on AMARA, this gift is a little out of the ordinary. I think it would suit many personalities; everyone uses pens and I think that girly girls, office workers, stationary lovers, fans of Kate Spade, keen writers and even bloggers would be delighted to receive this gift!

For the chocoholic
Cadbury Gifts Range

I think that for people who are mad about chocolate (also known as chocoholics) a present from Cadbury Gifts would be super.
On the Cadbury Gifts website, there are many chocolate-y gifts including luxury chocolate hampers, chocolate boxes, chocolate party bags, hot chocolate selections, personalized chocolate, pick 'n' mix gift box, flowers, toys, biscuits and also sweet selections.
There is a wide array of gifts of all priced and sizes and it's super easy to find the perfect gift. If you're unsure of what to buy for someone who seems to have everything or if you're on the look out for a secret Santa item, I think an item from Cadbury Gifts would be fab! 

 "Cadbury Gifts Direct - "the convenient way to gift Cadbury". Use Cadbury Gifts Direct for chocolate gifts with the universal appeal of Cadbury. Unique chocolate gifts with all the famous Cadbury chocolate brands including Roses, Milk Tray, Heroes and Wispa as well Dairy Milk chocolate bars, chocolate and flower hamper combinations; chocolate and wine gift sets; novelty chocolate gifts, Halloween chocolate gifts and Christmas Chocolate Gifts"

These giant tubs of chocolate always remind me of Christmas. Each year we (like most British families) love to purchase a huge tub of chocolate to place in the living room so that we've got some chocolate to nibble whilst watching Christmas TV.
Do you have huge tubs of heroes at Christmas in other countries?

For the tea addict
Twinings Gifts Range
We all know that person who is constantly drinking tea and as Twinings have begun selling a wide array of gifts which are centered around different selections of tea, there is now the perfect excuse to gift them a tea-related item. Twinings sell are gift hampers, gift boxes, tea caddies and compartment boxes. Most are presented in wooden boxes which makes the product look like it's of higher value and I think that these gifts would be a thoughtful and practical present to gift to a tea drinker.  
Since the gifts are all packaged so well, the repentance would think that you'd spent lots of money on them :P

For the girly girl
Bath Gift Set from Baylis and Harding

Baylis and Harding are renowned for selling the most beautiful gift sets, the style of their gifts are super chic and modern and the products are always scented beautifully. I'm a big fan of the products from Baylis and Harding. I think their gift sets would be suitable for girls and women of all ages. The colours and packaging of the gift boxes remind me of Christmas, and they really do have a sense of magic about them. Items from Baylis and Harding are available to buy from many retailers, some include Boots, Superdrug, ASDA, Tesco, Argos, Debenhams and BHS. Baylis and Harding also support charities so whenever you buy, you'll be contributing to a deserved cause. 

"Family is very important to us at Baylis and Harding, which is why we support charities locally, and nationally. We are trustees of The Mikey Abdou Foundation, and proud to support their work raising money for children in the West Midlands, and across the globe."

For the foodie
Seasonal Treats Box from Prestige Hampers
This item is actually my personal favourite from this gift guide. 
I think this hamper would be a fabulous present because it includes a chocolate bar, a chocolate assortment box, black forest crunch biscuits, a cherry and almond slab, breakfast tea, a jar of marmalade and a pot of jam. There really is something for everyone and since it all comes packaged in a ruby red magnetic box, there's no need to spend time and money wrapping it all up! 
There are so many hampers to choose from on the Prestige Hampers website, they range in price and there are hampers to suit everyone; there's wine hampers, cheese hampers, Christmas hampers, variety hampers, special dietary hampers and even pet hampers. 
Super easy, super affordable and super fun!
From my experience, Prestige are a lovely company with super a friendly team who are willing to help you in any way they can. On the Prestige website, you can read:

 "We are the only hamper company in the UK to have an "Excellent" rating on TrustPilot so you can safely order hampers online with ease."

If you're considering buying a hamper gift for somebody special (or even just to treat yourself) I'd highly recommend Prestige, their service is second to none!

For the interior design lover
Frankincense and Myrrh Gold Glitter Tealights from Marks and Spencer
Marks and Spencer have begun to sell their Christmas gifts.
  The M & S stores always look so magical at Christmas and their 3 for 2 gifts are too tempting. I often end up doubling up on the gifts that I buy because I want to be able to keep one for myself!
My favourite items from M & S gifts have got to be the homeware related gifts and I think those people that know how to make a house a home would appreciate some house warming gifts
One of my favourite items from the M & S homeware collection are these frankincense and myrrh gold sparkly tealights. I think these little candles would add a sense of festive cheer to any home and will make the perfect Christmas gift; also, can we take a moment to appreciate the beautiful packaging of this product, it looks so swish!

 "Buy any three from our festive selection and the cheapest item is free – mix and match across selected cards, wrapping paper, decorations, home fragrance and beauty gift"

For the Christmas-loving pet
Wilkinsons Christmas Gift Line For Pets
Those of us that have pets will know that over time, they become like family. 
I always like to buy a little treat for my dogs to open, I like to think it gives them a bit of fun on Christmas morning (and we have fun watching them try to rip the gifts open!). Wilkinsons offer a range of toys, chews, gift stockings and even costumes which will be sure to keep your pets from feeling left out of the festivities.
The Wilkinson website says:

 "Don't forget your pooch this Christmas - and with Fido's Festive Feasts you'll be buying them a gift they'll love!"
The packaging of Wilkinsons pet gifts are really sweet and they're super affordable too!
You can find Wilkinsons on Twiter   Facebook  and Instagram
