A Few Christmas Gift Ideas

Nando's Chilli Sizzler

A few Christmas gift ideas which won’t break the bank……

Hope & Glory CandleHeyland & Whittle Hope & Glory Candle is absolutely gorgeous.  It’s made from natural soy so it burns much more evenly. Not only does it smell nicer than virtually any candle I’ve ever had but it looks really luxurious and expensive too. A fab pressie for just about any woman.

Thorntons is always a good stand-by for gifts for any occasions. With Thorntons you can kind of always be assured that you’ll find something to suit everyone. Am loving these mouth-Thorntons Chocolate Cupcakes Boxwateringly scrumptious Chocolate Cupcakes. They are only £4.99 for nine beautifully made cupcake chocolates, including Ravishing Raspberry and Velvety Vanilla! Paulo the Penguin is a real cutie too. He’s a cuddly penguin toy full of milk chocolate penguins. A perfect stocking filler

Organic chocolate makers Green & Black’s have plenty of gifts for the more discerning chocolate lover. Their range has something for every taste and budget and is perfect for those difficult-to-buy-for people we all know.

Green & Blacks TASTING COLLECTIONThe new Tasting Collection is a favourite of mine. The kit contains a mix of twelve miniature bars of Green & Black’s signature flavours, as well as tasting note cards featuring interesting fact, recipe suggestions and flavour combination ideas.

Wilkinsons.com is useful for Christmas on a Budget and I swear I really had no idea that they sold so much. I thought it was a bit of a 99p type of place and was surprised by the range of goods they sell!

Love the colour of this deep purple Sparkle Ceramic Styler! The tourmaline ceramic straightener has quite a big 19mm wide plate with rounded edges so it’s very versatile & perfect for creating straight styles as well as curves and sleek curls. It heats up to 230° for instant results and comes with a style guide toSparkle Ceramic Styler give you the know-how to create some very glamorous styles. It’s a fantastic pressie for fans of certain vampire movies as it’s from the ‘Twilight’ Limited Edition Collection or for that matter anyone who uses straghteners.

Looking for gifts under a fiver for young women? I’m loving Tweezers With Attitude. They’re high performance stainless-steel tip tweezers with fab images emblazoned on them and have a real ‘I want one…’ vibe to them! They’re available from Sally Salon Services

Surprisingly Nandos have come up with some good gifts too…. the chilli sizzler Nandos Chilli Sizzlergift pack for around £15 is a particular favourite of mine and includes a cast iron sizzler, basting brush and Sweet & Sticky marinade to create your own mouth-watering chilli and chicken dishes. A nice little pressie for an awkward-to-buy-for bloke!


I’m fairly sure I’ll be back with a few more Xmas pressie ideas soon……

Mrs C
In a nutshell, I'm a Mum to three gorgeous daughters and two step-sons who are gradually making their own lives and leaving Mr. C and I plenty of time to enjoy life just as a couple again. I'm a big fan of Afternoon Tea & Corrie and hate, with a vengeance, violence in films! I love reading 'proper' books though I concede that my birthday Kindle was brilliant on holidays.
