Blogmas Day 13: A Simple Family Gift Guide


On the thirteenth day of Blogmas…

Christmas gift guides have become the blogger norm throughout Blogmas and guess who has jumped on the bandwagon? With the help of a few shops (all links provided, fear not!), I’m going to show you a selection of gift options for a few family members. Just call me your own personal shopper elf.

*Disclaimer: None of the shops have sponsored me for this post. At the time of writing it (29th October), all prices which I’ve mentioned are subject to change within store and online. 

For Mum

Boots have always been my go-to shop for my Mum during the Christmas period, she loves anything to do with hand creams and if they do a cute mini selection, that ticks an extra box. All Mum’s are different when it comes to what they like and mine is a little bit, lets say… selective, when it comes to what she has in life. Ha!

Superdrug: Baylis & Harding Sweet Mandarin & Grapefruit // £5

For Dad

For quite a few years now, I’ve been buying my Pops the latest football autobiography to come from a Manchester United player/manager, but as there are none being published at this time of year, I’m completely stuck for ideas…

Superdrug: L’Oreal Men Expert Barber // £10

For The Dog

Our puppy is spoilt rotten whether it’s Christmas or not, so for this year we’ve got him a few treats and new toys to keep him occupied. Let’s see how long the toys last. My bet: 2 hours. Ha!
