This has to be one of my favourite posts that I share every year. I’m Christmas mad and would happily marry Santa if I could ha. I think as a society now we have a lot of stuff and that makes shopping that bit more difficult. I know for my mum I struggle massively on a yearly basis as she just has everything and doesn’t want or need anything. With this in mind I try and think outside the box a little when it comes to gifts for family members and also when compiling my gift guide. I know I love receiving gifts that are a little different. I do hope you guys like my choices for my Christmas Gift Guide For 2018.
Christmas Gift Guide Ideas 2018
The Big Chilli Advent Calendar
I absolutely love the idea of this for the festive period. Its different plus great for those that love experimenting cooking wise and who also love a bit of a kick heat wise. The box comes with a variety of different chilli’s from whole chilli’s to flakes and powders. They all vary on intensity so great if you want to try varying degrees of heat and it also includes a chilli that’s sure to make you want a drink. The pack also comes with a handy booklet which also includes some recipes.
Chilli’s That are Included
Aji Amarillo, Green Dragon, Datero, Naga Bhut Jolokia, Chilli de Arbol, Smoked Chipotle Powder, Whole Carolina Reaper, New Mexican, Pequin Chilli, Chinese Chaotian, Trinidad Scorpion, Sweet Paprika Powder, Bullet Chilli, Ancho Chilli Flakes, Kashmiri Chilli Powder, Smoked Paprika Powder, Panca, Birds’ Eye, Green Hatch Chilli Powder, Urfa Chilli Flakes, Aleppo Chilli Flakes and Pasilla Chilli Powder.
Price wise I think its fantastic value for all that you get included.
Pink Geisha Bento Box
My daughter would move to Japan/China in a heartbeat, she is obsessed with the culture and I thought this was perfect for her to take to school for lunch time. She is a teen now and can avail of a microwave to heat at lunch so this is just perfect for her. But she can also take cold foods like salads, snacks etc in it as well. I adore the design which features a Geisha with a light pink colour. It also comes in variety of other designs including Darth Vader and Star Wars so a good variety to suit different tastes. The bento box also comes with a handy elastic band to hold the different sections together.
The bento box is microwave safe. Dimensions: 115mm diameter, 160mm high. Capacity: 1200ml (350ml x 2 + 500ml)
Both the above items are from Sous Chef who have a fabulous range of items for gifting this festive season.
Limited Edition Mach3 Gift Set
Stuart loves getting new shaving items at Christmas. He hates treating himself to good shaving items so this limited edition Mach3 gift set is perfect for him. It comes with a handy razor holder for storing after use. This set is available from Boots.
Includes additional cartridges, a shave gel and, for the first time, a stand for the razor – making it an ideal gift for Christmas!
The Bluebeards Revenge Soap Stack Kit
Bluebeard have a fabulous selection of gifts/shower/shaving items for the men in your life. We have worked with the brand before and can stand by the quality of their goods. So much thought has been put into each item and they use the best of ingredients in their products. This set is perfect for either a stocking stuffer or as main gift. As its soaps instead of the shave line it would also make a great gift for any male teachers.
The set contains a colourful stack of ingot-shaped soap bars with three unique fragrances for men. Suitable for showers, baths, hands and bodies!
Jam Audio Live True
These buds are a fabulous investment for yourself or a loved one. Perfect for a variety of uses from the tube, train, walking, at home or training in the gym. I love the fact that it comes with a fully charabe docking station where you can store the buds when not in use or charge.
The two separate earbuds fit snugly and comfortably into each ear, delivering up to 3 hours of play time with a single charge. The carrying case charges the buds for up to 10 uses. Which is fab especially is your away from a constant power source or on holiday etc.
The buds are available direct from JAM or from Amazon link below.
The website also has a whole host of other ideas for gifts or for treat for yourself 🙂
Next Base 312GW Dash Cam
I’m a huge techy nerd and that includes car items. This rose gold Next Base dash cam is a great investment for any lady drivers. It obviously comes in a variety of colours for all and a selection of different specs depending what you are wanting from your dash cam. Its very slimline and with the added gold detailing a nice feminine addition to you car. Above all I think its a valuable tool to have incase of accidents etc.
The spec which I have listed below is pretty impressive. That said its perfect for those who aren’t tech savvy but following the impressive directions in the booklet included. The designer has all aspects covered in terms of battery life etc in case of an accident and it has the added benefit of picking up even in low level lighting/night driving.
