Christmas Gift Guide 2017

This is definitely the post that I was most excited to write and share with you all this month, because who doesn’t love a good Christmas gift guide? I wanted to make sure that my gift guide was full of great products that not only I absolutely love (and am convinced you all will to) but that’re also within a budget.

As you know, I’m currently a second year university student along with so many of you and so I don’t exactly have plenty of extra funds to spend on family and friends around this year. It’s important to me that my gift guide reflects my own budget, and so I’ve put together a list of stocking fillers, food, drinks, stationary etc. that would be perfect to buy if you’re on a student budget but also great for any of you that are looking for gifts to buy students!

  1. Montezuma’s Mini Kilner Jars
  2. Fabric Baker Boy Hat
  3. Lush Avobath Bath Bomb
  4. One Line A Day: Celestial Five-Year Memory Book
  5. Topshop Supersoft Tassel Scarf
  6. Black Corduroy Eyes Makeup Bag
  7. Jamie Oliver 5 Ingredients, Quick & Easy Food

I was lucky enough to receive a few treats from some fabulous brands which I’m delighted to share with you all below. They really are a great set of gift ideas which I’m hoping you will all agree with me on!

Kimm & Miller

Christmas is definitely a time for parties and celebrations which often means having a few drinks and spending time with friends and family. Although the party scene is so large around this time of year you shouldn’t feel like you can’t get involved just because you aren’t drinking. My next set of gift guides are from Kimm & Miller and include a few treats for both the coffee lover and the cocktail connoisseur.

Costa Coffee Cappuccino Gift Set

Montezuma’s Chocolate Mug

Gin Syrup Mixer Selection

House of Wonderland

After you’re finished partying you’re going to want to start thinking about getting some work done (university isn’t all just fun and games after all!) which is where House of Wonderland and their stationary range comes in handy. Here are just a few of their fabulous pieces that I’ve chosen to include.

Mini Meal Planner

We Need To Get To The Upside Down Badge (similar)

Think Happy Thoughts Pen

Little Hungarian Hearts

I thought I’d finish off my Christmas gift guide with the cutest handmade tree decoration ever from Little Hungarian Hearts. Isn’t it just the sweetest?! What makes it so great in my opinion is the size of the heart. It’s a fairly small decoration which is perfect for both full sized Christmas trees but also for desk-sized ones if you’re thinking of having a small tree in your university kitchen or room!

    Hey,
    These are some great ideas for people like us who are a bit strapped for cash at the end of the year. I always buy Lush products as gifts for my friends and they always appreciate it, I’ve not tried the Avobath yet.

    Great options! Some people are really hard to shop for and your list has definitely helped – absolutely obsessed with the notebook, meal planner and makeup bag! x

    Some amazing stuff here! I love the little Mason jars and the scarf, although I’d be too tempted to keep that for myself. I know plenty of people who’d love the gin syrups too x

      Thank you! Haha I’d definitely be tempted to keep it as well. I think they’re such a nice idea for anyone who’s just starting to drink gin and likes slightly sweeter drinks! Xx
