Christmas Gift Guide And Competition 2019 Ends 01/12/19

I say this every year around this time - yes it won't be long to Christmas! I don't know about you but I generally buy my presents over November and December so not to panic buy. I always feel I don't have enough for my son though and end up buying extras last minute.  This year we are making a conscious effort to only buy what we really think will be appreciated. I think experiences are great, and this year I am looking to buy my son an experience like an activity. In the past, for my son and husband I've bought escape room activities, a driving supercars racing day and Zombie shooting. I'm easy to buy for, give me some chocolate, some makeup and a hotel stay and I'm sorted. Mr W take note!

If you are finding it difficult what to buy this year. I've done some of the hard work for you. I've rounded up some great gifts here for my adult Christmas gift guide 2019 and the best part is you can win all these prizes too.

For your husband




For your brother or son, this leather friendship bracelet from Hersey & Son would make the perfect gift. Made from sterling silver and the finest 3mm plaited black or mid-brown leather (dyed with eco-friendly dye) the solid silver disc on this friendship bracelet can be engraved with a name or a short message to make it even more personal. 

Hersey & Son is a London silversmith that sell a wide range of silver jewellery and silver giftware for all ages. From stunning silver cuffs to christening bangles, silver cross necklaces to silver wine coasters and photograph frames made of silver, Hersey & Son is the perfect online store for all your silver needs.

For your brother or son

For the brother that has everything, this retro sweet hamper would hit the spot. With 27 different types of sweets from everyone's childhood, this hamper is perfect for those with a sweet tooth. The hamper contains an assortment of cola bottles, jelly babies, flying saucers, gobstoppers and more, taking you back to relive those happy childhood days. 

All packaged in a wicker hamper, this retro sweet hamper makes a great gift on Christmas day. What is especially cool is that it is personalised too with any name. This retro sweet hamper is from The Personalised Gift Shop, check out their store for a range of personalised gifts, from jewellery and watches to photo frames and bags.

For all the family






Teenagers are notoriously hard to buy for but what a game like this you can play with your teenage son or daughter. Escape Room - The Game recreates the excitement of an escape room in your own home. You have to work together to solve puzzles and find hidden clues. 

Suitable from the ages of 16 plus and with 3 thrilling escape rooms, Escape Room - The Game is perfect to play at birthday parties, celebrations and over Christmas and New Year. Escape Room - The Game, can be found in Amazon and Argos and is priced at £30 and is made by Goliath Games.

For your daughter or sister



I love a good advent calendar, and I normally get a chocolate one but this advent calendar by Mad Beauty is great! Containing a number of beauty products, from lipstick, and lipgloss to nail polish and blusher, this calendar is perfect for your sister, daughter or even yourself.

If you haven't heard of Mad Beauty, they are a beauty company that focuses on making beauty fun. Their gifts are super affordable too. I love the Disney products they sell and the Man's Best Friend cosmetics bags with photos of dogs on. If you are looking for an advent calendar or stocking fillers that are affordable check out their website today.

For all your girlfriends




For your girlfriends, this Christmas, what about these unique travel wallets from Made Of Carpet? All uniquely designed in London and handcrafted in Europe, those pretty travel wallets can be used to protect your passport or other documents, as well as used as a purse. Made with real Belgian carpet and high-quality leather your friends will really appreciate the luxurious design of these purses.

Made Of Carpet is a company that has won numerous awards for its carpet bags inspired by British literary characters such as Miss Marple and Mary Poppins. Irina Bragin the founder was a finalist in the Best Businesswoman award 2018. As seen in the Amazon series Good Omens and the BBC period drama Ripper Street, these bags and purses bring a touch of Victorian England to any fashionista's wardrobe. 

For your foodie friends



If you have any coffee lovers or foodies among your family and friends then Pure Kopi Luwak coffee is an intriguing gift! This 100 per cent organic and cruelty-free drink also called 'cat poop coffee' is made by harvesting beans processed by Asian wild palm civet cats in a tiny farm in Java. 

The coffee is said to have many health benefits and is low in tannin, but being full of malic acid that can boost energy and it's packed full of antioxidants and brain-boosting neurochemicals. Priced at $140 for a 100-gram pack, this is one luxury coffee that will be a must-have gift this Christmas. 

For you

If you are thinking of what to ask others to get you, what about the Revamp Progloss Perfect Finish hair styling brush? A really easy to use hair styling brush with retracting bristles that won't pull your hair, gently releasing the style, and this brush also has ceramic heaters to heat up quickly and 5 heat settings, to get that volume and look you really want.

The Progloss Perfect Finish curl and wave brush also has Keratin, Argan and Coconut oil to help protect your hair every time you use it too. So your hair is lovingly protected from the heat. With a 2 year guarantee and worldwide voltage, this is one professional hair styler that is made to last.
