It’s that magical time of year again and I couldn’t be more excited to bring you my 2017 gift guide! (I’ve literally been excited for Christmas since June)
It’s sometimes quite difficult to come up with our own list of things we’d like to treat our friends and family to no matter how well you know them, but hopefully this post can offer some inspiration for different budgets!
Bunny bedside table nightlight: this super cute porcelain light is gorgeous – the perfect gift for someone who’s just moved into a new home! I also think this would be a lovely gift for a baby / child’s room – perfect to brighten up those dark, cosy evenings. Plus, the rabbit’s tail is an LED lightbulb that stays cool to the touch, meaning it’s nice and safe! Get yours on findmeagift.com
- Perfect for: children / people expecting / anyone who loves bunnies
Gin baubles: yep, you read right – gin baubles… something for the grown ups! Save this one to treat yourself / only for people you love – these baubles will look gorgeous hanging on your tree all Christmas season. The set includes The Lakes Gin (a speciality gin created in The Lake District, featuring Cumbrian Juniper, heather, meadowsweet and bilberry), The Lakes Sloe Gin Liqeur (made with sloe berries, featuring flavours of sweet raspberry jam, cinnamon and orange citrus) and The Lakes Damson Gin Liqeur (which boasts a delicious flavour of fresh cherries and ripe plums). Find these on findmeagift.com

Vivid Matcha: sticking with the health and fitness theme… Vivid Matcha, known for their ready-to-drink matcha cartons have just launched single serve matcha green tea powder sachets. Perfect for popping in your bag for pick-me-up on the go! Take a sachet and make yourself a matcha latte with some microwaved milk (cow or otherwise), or simply add to a smoothie for an extra nutrition boost!

HP Sprocket: I was given this little gadget for my birthday in August and I am in LOVE. It’s essentially a tiny photo printer – you connect your smartphone to it via Bluetooth and you’re good to print from your camera reel or your social accounts! PLUS the photos are sticky back, so you can stick them to your mirror, your fridge, the back of your phone… anywhere!
- Perfect for: those friends always with their phone out, capturing the moment
GoPro: again, another birthday present that I just can’t get enough of! Dom got me the Hero 5 (I know there’s a newer one out now but trust me, this one is brilliant) and it’s such an upgrade from my previous one!! It’s waterproof / smashproof without casing, it has a screen so you can see what the camera sees and it’s got so many different options (you can even stop that fisheye effect so well recognised!)
- Perfect for: adventurers and people who love documenting their holidays
