Christmas Gift Guide for Grown Ups | 2023
AD | gift guide – last on the list is my gift guide for the grown ups in your life. This year I have made it all about luxury with the theory that Christmas should be all about those little luxuries in life that you want to treat people with rather than what they need. Don’t get me wrong, I love a practical gift that I need and can actually use, but sometimes a little bit of luxury can really help to make someone feel special.
So, with that in mind, what about these ideas to give you a little inspiration.
THE COPENHAGEN COMPANY SCANDI CHRISTMAS
I really wish you could smell this candle. It is absolutely gorgeous and is Christmas in jar. I can’t pretend to understand all the amazing chemistry that goes into designing the scents but the Scandi Christmas Large Candle has top notes of orange, mandarin, lemon and red fruits, middle notes of cinnamon and clove and base notes of sandalwood, patchouli, vanilla and cedar.
Yes I don’t know what that means, but it does make an absolutely amazing citrus scent that has depth that you could get lost in. This candle plus the Pagazzi Wool Grey Throw (see below for more information!) has become top of my list for a festive night in.
PAGAZZI WOOL GREY THROW
This through is nothing short of stunning. Made from 100% wool it honestly just feels like luxury should feel. In a beautifully classic herringbone design, it is a fabulous throw to snuggle down under on a cold winter night. Measuring 170cm heigh and 130cm wide it’s a great size.
CLEAN G RHUBARB
Love a festive tipple but hate the hangover? The Clean Co offer a range of non-alcoholic drinks and this rhubarb flavoured gin alternative looks and sounds amazing. I love their ethos of “live tonight, thrive tomorrow”. Clean drinking but without the alcohol and hangover. I also think the cocktail recommendations on their website is a brilliant touch.
So whether you like whiskey, gin, run or tequila, there is no a Clean Co alternative. Find out more at CleanCo UK
ORION MENS ZIP NECK JUMPER
A great, high quality jumper is a like a hug that just keeps on giving. The waffle knit gives is great stretch while the ribbed neck and cuffs ensures a great fit. I particularly love the colour which screams autumnal vibes and this is a jumper which is smart enough to make an impact but cosy enough to become a future favourite.
Personalised Photo Gifts from VistaPrint
There was no way I was going to let a gift guide pass me by without mentioning personalised photo gifts. As a hobby photographer, there’s nothing I love more than being able to utilise the thousands of images I have taken over the years and there really are so many options available to suit every taste and budget.
As the theme of this year is luxury, I absolutely love these desktop photo plaques to give the images you love that extra special treatment to really show them off. Gorgeous quality with a true representation of colour from the uploaded image, these are such a great option.
And the pencil case below? Well, that I just couldn’t resist because how fun is that?! I’m a firm believer in releasing the photos being held captive on our digital devices and bring them into the real world to be enjoyed.
POUCH + SEAMS HAND CREAM GIFT SET
This little tube houses a hardworking hand cream that absorbs instantly with no greasy residue. I also absolutely love that is was originally created for sewers – hence the name – though it has been adopted by many more people since then and is apparently used extensively backstage on film and TV sets thanks to its quick results. If fact you could say that it is the star of the show (do you see what I did there?!).
All joking aside though, I really love that all SEAMS products and packaging are made in the UK, not tested on animals and are paraben free. You can find out more on the SEAMS website.
BOOKS BOOKS AND MORE BOOKS
Yes I know this is a gift guide for other people but in my opinion you can NEVER go wrong with a good book that you think someone will enjoy. Yes I know that as a bookworm I am most likely biased but I can honestly say you can NEVER have too many books (though my husband may disagree).
I am really looking forward to cracking the spine on these fabulous looking books by DCR Bond, both of which you can find on Amazon (affiliate link).
COCOONZZZ SILK PILLOWCASE
Nothing says luxury like silk and this silk pillowcase from Cocoonzzz is absolutely gorgeous. There are so many benefits to sleeping on silk both for your skin and hair and this range is utterly devine. Made from 100% pure mulberry silk 16 momme, without any other chemical substances it feels amazing to the touch.
And there we have it. The end of my 2023 Christmas Gift Guides and I’m so happy to have closed this year recommendations with a little touch a luxury. I’d love to know if any of these items would find their way onto your wish list.
DISCLOSURE: I was sent these items for the purposes of this guide. However all items were individually selected to provide a list of genuine recommendations.
