Christmas Gift Guide | Lifestyle

As soon as Boots have their 3 for 2 on Christmas gifts (like in September or whatever) I'm all over that, and have all my Christmas shopping done months in advance. I don't like shopping near Christmas, ok, well I mean I don't like going out to the shops. I ventured out on Black Friday to pick up some hair dye in my town, and I didn't expect it to be as manic as it actually was, lets say this, never again. However, I am a super fan of the online offers they have, and I may have got a little giddy and purchased a few things. Black Friday and Cyber Monday give great opportunity to start your Christmas shopping if you haven't already done so, but you have to be careful, a lot of the time you aren't actually getting a bargain; stores just up their RRP prices looking like they are offering a super discount on products. 

Anyway, I'm a big fan of online shopping, in fact I pretty much do all my shopping online. It's simple, easy, and I love ASOS Premier and Amazon Prime for free next day delivery. Those two online retailers have pretty much everything I need, and I always check out them first. 

So here is a little gift guide for you, of a few bargain items that you might wanna buy for the lady in your life. Or check that, treat yourself to.
1. The Schoolbook of Joy: Body Shop £15.00 (Save £5 with Black Friday offer - code TREAT). I love the Vanilla Brûlée collection, so yummy. 
2. Bad Hare Day wash bag by Casey Rogers: Presents for Men £16.99. This is the ideal size for me to take to China! 
3. Lily X Coffee Collection phone case: Iconemesis from £5 (currently with 50% off for Black Friday) (available for different phones). This is my all time favourite phone case. 
4. Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium, 30ml gift set: Boots £44. This perfume is absolutely gorgeous, I would love a bottle for Christmas, although my dad has bought my mum this beautiful gift set for her birthday so I may just have to occasionally borrow it...
5. Zoella Blissful Mistful 45ml: Superdrug £8. I bought this after seeing the Twitter hype for her new beauty range, and I must admit I am pleasantly surprised and absolutely adore this, for £8 it's a bargain.
6. Frankie Magazine 2015 diary: Frankie Press $26.95 (around £14.85). I pre-ordered mine so have it in my safe possession this year, they sell out very quickly! Such a big hype on Twitter for these beautiful diaries. 


  1. Black Opium is my favourite fragrance at the moment, I've asked for a back up for Christmas.
