As I am not going to be around this Christmas I will have to start my Christmas shopping early this year. With not so much to buy it should be slightly easier on my bank balance but as prices go up I doubt this will be the case. Take a look at some of things I have managed to find whilst trawling the net for gifts for the special people in my life.
For the Book Worm (Modern day!)
Kindle Fire HD – £109 – Available from various retails but originally from Amazon
After a quick conversation with my good friend about what her daughter wants for Christmas – this is what was mentioned. The valid point was made that a Kindle is a device to read not to go online, play games and whatever else they currently are able to do. I understand that there are many tablets out there but in my opinion Kindle has taken it one step too far and just complicated their simple original brand.
For the House
Tassimo T40 Fidelia Multi Drinks Machine – Silver – £59.99 (Originally £119.99) from Argos
A gadget that I long for and have heard many great things about. Something that will sort out my coffee craving in the morning before heading out to work and without the extra cost of a coffee chain store. Stylish, compact and at the moment cheap at half the price – literally! I am hoping this sale lasts until pay day as it is something that I am seriously thinking about buying. My only bug bear is that the capsules seem to be quite expensive, however compared to the price of one coffee in a coffee shop to a packet of 6 – not that bad! With 8 extra large cups of Costa Caramel Latte for just £4.99 and deals such as 2 packets for £6 at Tesco why not!!!
For the Ladies
Dermalogica Facial – 40 minutes for £60 – from Earth Spa
This may seem like a slightly excessive price but just remember two things. If not during the festive season (apart from birthdays!) when can you treat yourself?! Luckily before my trip ended I had an Aromatherapy Dermalogica massage and it was absolutely amazing. My skin was fresh although slightly sore at one point from the extraction by the time I left I was walking on a cloud of peace and serenity. I am hoping to experience yet another glorious Dermalogica experience again before Christmas as my skin has decided to break out into all kinds of nastiness since my return.
For the Men
Ultimate Man Refuelling Kit – £60 (3 Full Size items and 3 samples) – From Kiehl’s
Altogether this lovely bundle can be bought for £60. There are a couple of things that are only samples but can be bought in full size for quite reasonable prices. Check out the website and see what you get in this joyful bundle. As there is no full sized advert I just put together the above picture so you can see what is on offer. Most men will not admit that they love to preen so when you buy them something like this they will most likely squeal a silent cry of joy!
There are many more gifts out there and many places to find them. The above are only a few suggestions based on personal recommendation and my actual christmas list.
What is on your Christmas list?
