Affordable Christmas Gift Guide For Those You Love

I have to admit I'm now well and truly operating in 100% festive mode. I've been rocking Christmas socks, drinking mulled wine and we've put our Christmas tree up. I absolutely love all the pretty decorations, delicious comfort foods and I really love Christmas Gift shopping! There's something so lovely about buying presents for the people you love. I love making my family and friends smile and I get really excited about picking out presents for them.

Sometimes it can be a little hard to know what to buy or where to buy it from so I thought I would share my little Christmas Gift guide. This is a great mix of affordable high street and independent gifts.

Candles & Smellies 

Valley Mill Scented candle

 Roast Chestnut Soy Wax Candle - Price - £16 | Buy it HERE.

I don't think I know anyone who doesn't like candles or their house smelling beautiful. I personally think a nice scented candle makes a gorgeous gift for friends, family and couples!

If you are looking for something that little bit more special I would highly recommend Valley Mill, they have a great selection of Candles, Wax Melts & Natural Soaps.

I have picked a Roast Chestnut Soy Wax Candle* which has come in a gift box and with a hand cut Welsh Slate topper, which will make a great coaster once the candle is fully burned. The candle smells gorgeous and looks really luxurious. 

Spiced Apple Wax Melts- Price £6.25 | Buy it HERE

These really do smell just like Christmas and they're so pretty too! They will make a fantastic stocking filler.

Orange and Cinnamon Soap - Price £4.00 | Buy it HERE

This soap smells both spicy and warm, it's a perfect winter scent and best of all it is 100% natural and kind to the skin. The soap is made with Coconut Oil, Olive oil, Castor oil and Shea butter.

Christmas spice scented candles from Primark - Price £3 | Buy Primark Store

Another great little stocking filler if you're on a budget, they're not as luxurious as the Valley Mill products but they smell nice and are pretty cute.

Tea Glorious Tea

Personally, one of my very favorite things to receive as a gift is Tea. Green tea, white tea, fruit tea, herbal tea. I just love them all. I think the love of tea can be a little infectious because over the years I have introduced many of my friends and family to tea that is a little more adventurous than the classic Yorkshire Tea.

I've picked out some amazing gifts for any tea lover in your life.

Teapigs Christmas Tea

Teapigs Spiced Winter Red Tea - Price £4.49 | Buy HERE

I can only describe this tea as a Christmas hug in a mug. The base is made from delicious redbush (roiboos) tea, which is flavoured with orange, cloves and cinnamon. I actually received this as a gift myself last Christmas and ever since then it has been my go to tea during the winter months. 

Teapigs Mao Feng Green Tea - £3.99 | Buy HERE

Green tea, is one of the healthiest drinks in the world, however, it can be an acquired taste. This tea is gentle in flavor and would suit a green tea newbie and a connoisseur. 

Teapigs Everyday Brew - Price £9.95 (there's cheaper smaller boxes available) | Buy HERE

I don't drink, breakfast tea very often, but this English breakfast blend is probably the nicest I have ever tried. It's a combination of three top quality whole leaf black teas - Assam, Ceylon and a lovely Rwandan - which gives a balanced, malty, zesty alliance and the most perfect cup of tea. It is also a very safe option as most people love English Breakfast tea.

Teapigs Book of Tea - Price £20 | Buy HERE

This book is filled with stunning photography, fun tea fact infographics about where tea comes from and what makes the best tea, history, tea drinking culture around the world and lots of delicious recipes. This is an incredible present for any tea nut.

Teapigs is one of my very favourite tea companies. Their tea comes beautifully packaged and each tea bag is filled with whole leaf tea, which means that every cup is guaranteed to be absolutely full of flavor.

This tea is absolutely gorgeous. It's a blend Chinese oolong tea, Spearmint, Nettle, Dandelion, Burdock and Milk Thistle. Spearmint helps to aid digestion and Oolong is known to boost the metabolism.

Sweet Treats

Candy Hero Custom Gift Hamper - Price £14 | Buy in Store or Online

I think the only person who wouldn't like this particular gift hamper is someone who is either allergic to nuts or doesn't like them.
I'm currently a little bit obsessed with American chocolates especially anything from Reeses as is Oli. I've build this gift hamper full of nutty, chocolatey, fudgey goodness especially for him and I know that he's going to love it.

If you're not into nutty chocolates, Candy Hereo has so many different sweet treats to choose from that I'm sure you'll find something you'll love. The prices are very reasonable too, especially comparing to other sweet shops.

Every Christmas Oli requests that I buy him some socks. I've spoken to a number of my guy friends and they all seem to love getting socks for Christmas! I'm not sure what it is about guys and not buying their own socks...

This year I found some really gorgeous and warm socks from Primark out of all places. They seem to have a really large range of male socks in stores at the minute. The woven boxers are from there too. They feel really luxurious and I really love the patterns!

Lief Jewellery Rough Amethyst on Gold Necklace - Price £24 | Buy HERE

Affordable Christmas Gift Guide for HerAffordable Christmas Gift Guide

I am so so in love with this necklace. Amethyst is one of my very favourite crystals and this is a necklace of dreams. A lot of bohemian jewellery comes in silver, but the 18inch gold chain makes it look very delicate and elegant. There's lots of amazing jewellery pieces to choose from in both gold and silver on the Lief website. Each jewellery piece comes in a presentation box finished with a sprinkle of dried flower petals. The flower petals really compliment the crystals beautifully. Lief would receive 10/10 from me for the gift box presentation.
 All the jewellery made and supplied by Lief is created using high quality materials that are all ethically sourced. 
**Unfortunately the necklace pictured is now sold out but Any piece from Lief would make a stunning, unique gift.**
