It’s just about to hit Black Friday and we are all getting organised with Christmas presents early this year with the unknown of when shops in England will reopen. I usually plan in a big shopping day in central London and enjoy lugging round many bags, feeling accomplished by my mission of completing my entire Christmas present list! This year, given that many of us are stuck at home for a few more weeks (and for the best week of deals out there!) I thought it only appropriate to create ‘The Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide for Him & Her’ to help you all out!
This gift guide contains everything from the classic, but ‘oh so trendy’ scented candles, make-up brushes you didn’t know your girlfriend needed and some ideas of those impossible boyfriends who seem to have everything already.
I had originally wanted to break up the ultimate Christmas gift guide for him & her, into gifts for girlfriends/boyfriends, mums/dads, brothers/sisters etcccc. but then I realised that most of the gifts below can be gifted to most family members and friends and they’d be super chuffed. I don’t know about you, but these days I think my mum is cooler than me, with her range of beauty products from Illamasqua, Mac and Laura Mercier and stash of yoga gear for her weekly virtual classes. I know she would love any of the below as much as me!
For the men out there… well I know this is a huge presumption, but their interests don’t seem to age that much and I’m pretty sure G will be wearing Ralph shirts until he’s 90! With that said, it is becoming increasingly difficult to buy gifts for the men in my life because they all have ‘less stuff’ but it’s nice – if you know what I mean. They have a fancy wallet, they have leather belt, they have the latest iPhone and they have a really decent coat. Needless to say I’ve tried to include a robust range that does include the classics, but also a few curveballs that you may not have thought of before (inc. resistance bands set, electric corkscrew and a mini Theragun, which are all the rage!)
What’s even better about this list is that I’ve managed to compile it from THE SAME SHOP. Yes, it’s everyone’s favourite Christmas destination…John Lewis! I can’t help but feel guilty about ordering multiple parcels at the moment, both the impact it’s having on the planet, but also the demand on the operations of these businesses. Which is why, buying all your presents in one go, from one shop is the best outcome – stress free Christmas I hear you say? Totally!
John Lewis also have their amazing ‘never knowingly undersold policy’ which means you know you’re getting the best price on the high street, great service if anything goes wrong and somehow just feels like the ultimate Christmas destination.
So here it is…The Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide for Him & Her…
