Somehow I seem to find adults easier to buy gifts for than children – though usually it’s a gift card or a bottle of booze! Practical items too, and the token joke gift. The Husband will be getting mostly practical this year!
If you’re still shopping for the adults in your life, hopefully there are a few ideas for you below in the final one of my series of Christmas gift ideas.
Threaders Cute Companions crochet kit – RRP £14.99, available from Crafter’s Companion
This crochet kit comes with all the items needed to make your very own cute cuddly companion – including crochet tools & hook, yarn, stuffing, and instructions. It’s a great little set for a novice or an expert. Characters include Zack the Zebra, Pippa the Panda, Leo the Lion, and Dexter the Dog.
Practical gifts are always handy – here you can also check out some practical gifts for the traveller in your life.
Brushed gold highball glasses – RRP £14.99, available from Domu
This pair of highball glasses from VonShef are great for someone who likes to make a bit of statement in their kitchen. Coming in a gorgeous brushed gold colour, they’ll glam up any drink from a cocktail to a glass of water! The stainless steel construction will keeps drinks at an optimum temperature for longer too. Perfect for Christmas and New Year parties!
Dairy Diary – RRP £8.50, available from Dairy Diary
A diary is one of those practical gifts I mentioned, and this is one of the most practical I’ve come across! With all the usual pages in a diary including space for addresses, notes, conversions, and week-to-view-pages, this one also comes with a weekly recipe that takes of advantage of seasonal produce. Not only that, it contains a number of useful articles including stain removal and exercise tips! (Its sister Recipe Diary is over in my Christmas gift ideas for foodies).
Jayne’s Beanie Tabs
Mini beanbag device holder – RRP from £7.99, available from Etsy
These mini bean bags are brilliant for holding devices whilst reading or watching; perfect for falling asleep bedtime reading moments and not dropping your Kindle on your face! They come in a large variety of fabric designs and three different sizes to hold devices, from mobile phones to laptops!
CLUG – RRP £15, available from Hornit
The award winning CLUG from Hornit is the world’s smallest bike rack. It simply fixes to the wall and you roll up your bike and “CLUG” it in! A very practical gift for a cycling enthusiast – even better for one with limited space! It comes in three sizes for different tyres – road tyres, hybrid tyres, and mountain bike tyres. There’s also a choice of two colours – simple black & white, or funky orange & white.
The Gift Experience
Personalised family rustic tree slice – RRP £19.99, available from The Gift Experience
This personalised family tree slice would make a lovely family or couples gift. Made from an actual tree slice, it really is a unique gift as no two slices will be the same. The slice can be engraved with the family surname and the family member names. It would be a great table centerpiece or simply left on display.
Yankee Candle gift set – RRP £14.99, available from Ryman
As a candle lover – especially Yankee Candles – I would be delighted to receive this! You can’t beat the smell of the Yankee candles as you open the box – such a Christmassy scent from all four included in this set. There are three votives in the scents of Icy Blue Spruce, Frosty Gingerbread, and Glittering Star, plus a Winter Wonder scented small jar.
Jewellery & beauty
Down The Rabbit Hole
Quirky & unique jewellery – RRP from £4, available from Down The Rabbit Hole
This is one of my favourite small business jewellery brands and I own quite a collection, so I couldn’t not suggest some quirky and unique jewellery from here! Choose from necklaces, earrings, badges & brooches. A lot of the jewellery is fandom based so you’ll find items related to Harry Potter, The Walking Dead, Mary Poppins, Doctor Who and much much more.
Handmade jewellery – RRP from £8, available from Mama Tigerlily
Mama T is another small business jewellery favourite of mine. All Mama Tigerlily jewellery is lovingly handmade, using a variety of beautiful gemstones and techniques such as metal stamping. She also takes on commissions, though her order book is closed for Christmas now, but she has a further selection of ready made jewellery to choose from over on Facebook.
Enriched nail lacquer – RRP £9, available from Cienna Rose
These luxury nail lacquers with a gel like finish from Cienna Rose would make a great stocking filler. They come in 27 different shades in a gorgeous little bottle that would look fab on any dressing table. Being a care-focussed brand, the lacquer is a 12-free formula, enriched with pro vitamin B5, vitamin E, and infused with lemongrass oil. They’re vegan friendly too!
Izoa lips ring – RRP $49, available from The Iconic
The Iconic have lots of fabulous gifts for her starting at $8, including this very on trend lips ring from Izoa. Its gold plated, and there’s no need to even get a ring size as it has adjustable sizing. The red enamel detail on the lips makes it a really stand out piece of jewellery to complement any outfit!
Big Potato Games
Scrawl – RRP £25, available from Amazon
Scrawl is a great option for those with a sense of humour! Purely for adults, it’d make a great gift for a Christmas or New Year party. A game consisting of doodling and caption writing, one person draws an innocent loaded phrase (such as “Monkey Knife Fight”) and passes it on for everyone to guess with ridiculously funny interpretations!
