We know exactly how you feel…

We, like you, have Pinterest boards a’brimming with DIY festive inspiration. Last December we promised ourselves that we would save money next yuletide by knitting tacky jumpers, baking Christmas cake pops (these ones are fantastic!) and hand sewing Nordic-themed bunting. Ah, to live in the world. But alas, October/November is upon us, and we haven’t got the time or inclination to lug ourselves to Hobbycraft. Therefore, buying our way out of the Christmas pressie madness is our only viable option.

So, without further ado, let’s get down to the Christmas gift nitty gritty with our pick of the best goodies on offer this season- no superglue, glitter or crepe paper required.


These festive stocking cuties look far more expensive than they actually are. (No more accidentally on purpose leaving the expensive price tag attached in order for present receiver to discover that you paid through the nose for their tiny treat! Come on, admit it, you’ve done it too!)


Scottish Fine Soaps Gingerbread and Spiced Apple Soap in a Tin

Channel the festive smells of German markets this season, sans the mouldy cheese pong.


Badger Balms

An on-the-go balm to solve every beauty bugbear you can imagine- from energising tired tootsies and easing tension to aromatically soothing a tight chest area. (Although we recommend you use this last one less on-the-go and more behind closed doors!)


Burt’s Bees Mini Collection

Cute as a button? Check. Delectably soft hands and lips guaranteed? Check. Will ‘accidentally’ fall into our handbags instead of being put under the tree? Most likely.

Rose & Co  Bath Melt Gift Box

All the chicness of a Duo cupcake, but without the calorie guilt! Hoorah!


Cath Kidston Wild Flowers Assorted Fragrances Shower Gels

Cath K’s big scents in itty bitty pretty packages.
Vintage heaven.


Korres Lip Butters

These handbag must-haves not only smell good enough to eat but every shade is beautifully wearable – so it’s just a case of eeny meeny miney moe, and you’re good to go!


Tisserand Aromatherapy Roller Balls

Free from all the dubious ingredients you can imagine – except for darn great smelling essential oils that is. There is a powerful pocket rocket for every need imaginable here – from focus to diet to energy.
