Japanese Tableware – a stunning blue and green two bowl ramen set, complete with wooden noodle ladles, a packet of noodles and a recipe card and sack. The bowls are individually finished with a matte glaze, so are all unique and are stunning.
The bowl set is £39.50 and in all honesty? Worth every penny.
Echo Falls Summer Berries Rosè was undoubtedly a huge summer craze, but for those of you that like a stronger drink with that summer berry taste the new Echo Falls Summer Berries Vodka, is totally for you. I will be popping up a recipe for vodka jellies in the next week or so using this too. It’s around £16 but that will vary. It is all kinds of fabulous.
Belmio Coffe Pods – this one I am excited about, aluminium Nespresso compatible coffee pods. They have a range of coffee flavours available, and of course Espresso, Ristretto and Lungo. So if you are looking to try a new coffee without compromising on quality – you’re all set. £16.50 for a 50 pod gift pack.
Hendrick’s Gin, this one is one of my personal tipples of choice. I really love the subtle cucumber and rose. If you are giving it as a nifty gift, the gifts comes with a teacup reminiscent of the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party table. £35.95
Deadhead Rum – just for the bottle alone this is worth purchasing. £47.95
(Too cheesy? Whatever.)
First up the utterly surprising Lovelily from Accessorize, at a sweet £25 ish quid you get a lot of floral notes for your poundage. Once you get over the stunning bottle, you can enjoy the scent itself. Raspberry, orange, jasmine, and a sweet vanilla settles into a luxe and long-lasting scent.
Monsoon pulled a blinder with a super long-lasting perfume, Rose Gold lasted around 6/7 hours of wear for me which is pretty amazing. Top notes of sparkling lemon, soft fruit and ozonic scents are layered with velvety rose, tuberose, neroli and cyclamen, and underpinned with base notes of Eastern woods, vanilla, mosses, musk and balsamic amber. It is pretty stunning. £35
For the purpose of research – obviously, I tested out two vibes from So Divine. The Ohh La La £24.49, and the rose gold Halo Bullet £7.99. Straight away the Ohh La La has the edge, simply because it has multiple settings and there is pretty much something for all tastes. If you like it at one speed, or the big ‘O’ on the go then the Halo is your best buddy. If you want time, and a range of uses with a friend then go for the Ohh La La. Either way, you’re in for a pretty sumptuous time. Thumbs up for me.
I have been know to go into what I like to call ‘hyper worry mode’, and to combat this I always carry some Bach Rescue Remedy in some form or other. I light lavender candles or use lavender lotions and sprays, I really love the calmness they both bring. This type of gift is really thoughtful and to be honest, although small the impact is pretty mighty. The Arnicare and Calendula pictured above have worked wonders during the cold winter months and the undeniable rush of the festive season. Prices vary depending on the product, from about £6 and up.
Bloom & Glow from Angela Langford has changed my morning routine in the best way. It peps up my skin and leaves it soft and smelling amazing. It’s the perfect party prep oil, and isn’t greasy. The Evening Primrose goes deep and helps retain moisture while the Chia Seed & Rose hip help repair the winter damage. I have sensitive skin and have noticed a marked improvement in my usual blotches. It’s pretty amazing, I feel like it has provided my skin with some much-needed balance and glow. £20.50
Rubis tweezers, these tweezers are so precise and easy to use. There is no tugging of the hair, due to the super tight grip. Perfect for in between brow appointments, removing random stray facial hairs and ensuring you can take care of ingrowing hairs should you need to. They are fantastic. £20.10
