Christmas Gift Guide For Kids Of All Ages

It's Christmas gift guide time again and I thought I'd start with the kids, this guide features gifts for young kids all the way up to teenagers so everyone is covered.

So lets start off with the Despicable Me Jumbo Art Set which is a great gift for boys or girls and covers a wide age range. Most children love stickers, drawing and colouring in so this gift is sure to be a hit and let's face it who doesn't like the Minions?

Another great gift for most children are sweets and retro sweets are the best, this reindeer stocking packed full of nostalgic treats from is a fab gift and would be enjoyed by younger children as well as teenagers. Each stocking contains Flying Saucers, Fizzy Cola Bottles, Strawberry Foam Mushrooms, Dinky Chocolate Christmas Mix, Fruit Salad, Space Dust, Chocolate Coins, Giant Refresher Bars, Double Lollies, Drumsticks, Dip Dabs and a Sherbet Fountain which should keep the recipient going for a while or if they're anything like me a few days at least.

A great gift for teenage boys is the Beckham Instinct Sport Two Piece Set which contains a 150ml body spray and a 200ml hair and body wash because let's face it there's nothing worse than a stinky teenage boy. This set will keep them smelling fresh for quite a while and it smells really good so it also makes a great gift for boyfriends, husbands or even Dads.

Lastly is a lovely set for all those little girls who love Frozen, the Disney Frozen 52 Piece Art Set contains everything a child needs for hours of fun colouring, painting and drawing. This set is also great because it comes in a self contained case so it can be tidied away in seconds which sounds great to me as a Mum who spends hours picking up pencils and crayons that the kids have been using and not put away.

I hope this gift guide helped to give you some ideas, look out for more gift guides coming soon.

Getting Ready For Christmas

Yes that's right it's not even November yet and I'm already using the C word but I love Christmas so much I can't help get excited and I'm starting my Christmas shopping and preparations early in a bid to be organised this year.

In the lead up to Christmas there are a lot of parties to attend not to mention Christmas day itself and new year so I like to make sure I'm stocked up on my favourite false nails and lashes. My favourite brand at the moment has to be KISS, the nails are really easy to apply, you can either use the adhesive tabs to stick them on or the glue whichever you prefer, they're easy to remove and they don't damage your nails plus they come in a range of gorgeous colours and designs. 

The lashes are really lightweight and soft, they're easy to apply and remove and they look nice and natural while still giving you a glam look, perfect for Christmas time. You can buy KISS products from Boots, Asda and Superdrug.

I've started to do some Christmas shopping and I got a couple of gorgeous gifts from Crabtree & Evelyn, they have a lovely selection of gifts which are perfect for the festive season. I chose the Country Florals Hand Therapy Trio Tin which contains three of their amazing hand creams that smell divine and make your hands feel super soft and I got the Fine Foods Spiced Ginger Biscuits which are delicious and will make a great gift for Christmas.

A must have for me in December is an advent calendar but instead of going for the usual chocolate one this year I'm going to give a beauty one a try. There's so many available at the moment but a lot of them are really expensive so I thought I'd go for the MAD Beauty Advent Calendar as it's super affordable at just £20. 

Inside you'll find a range of beauty items including lipsticks, nail polish, eye shadow and blusher as well as makeup brushes, nail files and nail stickers. I think it would be perfect for a teenager if they're getting too old for the chocolate advent calendars and they're into makeup.

My go to nail colour for autumn/winter has got to be Scandal by Orly from their new Infamous collection which is available to buy from Graftons Beauty from November. It's a beautiful creme berry shade which is perfect for this time of the year and the quality of Orly polishes is second to none.

My favourite makeup for winter has got to be the absolutely stunning Arctic Beauty collection by ARTDECO, This new collection was inspired by the iridescent colour spectrum of the Arctic’s ice crystals, auroras and glacial landscapes and is possibly their most striking collection to date. 

The new range includes a sparkling liquid eyeliner, sparkling lash gel, shimmer cream, shimmer dust, creamy lipsticks, shimmer and shine glosses, a shimmer blush, a pearl high lighter and a set of opulent nail lacquers in iridescent pearly colours.

The collection is limited edition and is available to buy from beauty salons and spas nationwide from the end of October.
