All Year Round Gift Giving Ideas
Tis the season once again. There are so many options for gift giving, especially around the festive time of the year. It’s far easier than ever to have a pre-made packaged gift ready to buy off the shelf. From gift sets to stocking fillers.
Don’t know about you, but I like to tailor one gift to that special someone who wouldn’t have thought they needed. A surprise gift, not too extravagant, but not too expensive or badly made either. It is finding that gift that they might like and actually use all year round.
Tip: When shopping for gifts look out for discounts that could be used in-store or online.
For those tea, coffee and hot chocolate lovers, an oversized mug, looks great for that someone who likes the interior design and a stylish home. I love this large cup from Urban Outfitters – (alternative) – Stoneware Mug, looks the part and is definitely makes drinking your beverage more enjoyable.
Nails Inc is very much a luxurious brand and has many gift sets, ideal gift for that someone who loves a good manicure. But at a steel the colours Abbey Road & Gloucester Walk, I found that many online cosmetic shops have this brand at reduced prices.
A bit tricky this one choosing a perfume for someone else. After some detective work on what they would like to smell of; I personally love and recommend the Jo Malone – English Pear & Freesia Cologne and Jo Malone – Basil & Neroli Cologne. The 30 ml size isn’t too expensive and easy to travel with every day, carry in a bag.
Clutch & Pouch
For that something luxurious gift they won’t be ashamed of displaying, the Oliver Bonas – (alternatives) – Two Tone Pouch & Rebecca Minkoff – Mini Mac I talked more about in my blog post ‘Two T’s & A Crossbody’, is worth checking out.
