Christmas gift guide

I can not believe how close it is to Christmas - this year has gone so fast! 

If you are totally unorganised like me then you will have left it very late to go out and grab those last few things and get them sent off to Santa in time for the big day.

But there is still time.

I have put together a little gift list in the hope that if you as laid back as me, it will help you get some last minute things quickly so your friends and family don't have to miss out.

I've also added a couple of things I would love to find in my pressie pile on the big day and these may be ideas for things you could grab for a partner or Dad too.

There's also a few bits for that person who's just had a new addition into the family...like me.

Anybody who knows me knows I'm a big shoe lover and have quite a nice selection of brogues going on at the moment.
This Ted Baker brogue note book from Amara is the perfect shoe-match for me and it also helps to keep me organised and still looking really manly and really quite stylish.

The attention to detail is quite amazing, I love the parrot images on the inside and the bright blue colour is really bright and attention grabbing.
This book will come in very handy for me jotting down all my important blog related notes inside of the A5 size lined pages.
And like any good note book you will never lose the page you are on with the black and gold satin ribbon page saver.

To be honest, the whole book screams out elegance and is a perfect gift idea.

Next up there is a perfect gift idea for the gentleman in your life who loves to look after his shoes.

It has got everything needed to keep those fancy shoes looking clean and fresh.

Gentleman's Hardware Shoe buff Shine kit from Amara

I really do like to take pride in how I dress and will never leave the house in a pair of scuffed, muddy shoes, so this little gift will be definitely getting a lot of use.

It is in such a compact little holder it could be taken out on your travels too.

If you follow me on social media of are a frequent reader of my blog then you will know that my life is super busy at the moment with the arrival of my little girl willow who is 9 weeks old today.

I can not think of anything better really than having a few personalised items around the house for her which we can keep and show to her when she gets older.

This is something we did for my son who is 10 year old now and he loves getting them out and looking through them all.

Creating memories is so important - which is why I love this so much

Personalised Oak Photo Keepsake Cube from Treat Republic

This cube is perfect because you can add you favourite photos to each of five sides and they are easily changeable.

The lid can be removed and special little keepsakes, like first lock of hair, can be kept inside it.

It has also got her full name and date of birth across the lid which is a great touch...and it means even I shouldn't ever forget her birthday now.

Another great personalised gift for the new arrival are these Personalised baby wash cloth bundle from Treat Republic 

They are 100% cotton wash cloths and are super soft - perfect for delicate baby skin.
This set includes three personalised, same sized face cloths, with her name stitched on in pink letters (the lettering comes in blue if you fancy that too).

These are perfect for my little girl who really loves her bath time. 

I love the next item so much - a Personalised Christmas Star  from Icedrainbow

This is great, it is so simple but definitely super cute and the fact that it's personalised is perfect - it is something I will be keeping inside of the the keepsake photo box that features in this post too.

It will take pride of place on our Christmas tree, right next to our sons First Christmas bauble which we get out every year too.

Icedrainbow have a wide range of items on offer and cater for all kinds of needs - from personalised keepsakes like this brilliant star to cake toppers as well as jewellery and they also offer a brilliant bespoke service.

We all deserve to shine brightly, and the star decoration was created to do just that - to capture the perfect moments (like a baby's first Christmas) to hang on the tree for many years to come.

I really hope you have enjoyed this little gift guide and that it has helped you out a little bit.

If you are looking for something a little different but still along these lines, make sure you check out the other things available on the website's of all three companies because they are packed with great gift ideas.

I was sent the gifts to review, all pictures and opinions are my own.
