Christmas gift guide for Him/Her and giveaway!

I know it’s hard to believe but…Christmas is coming!

And now it’s a perfect time to think about Christmas gifts for your family members, friends, colleagues. Basically for everyone who matters. Giving someone a gift it’s the most exciting part for me. I just like to know that I’ve made someone happy.

Especially during Christmas. It’s such a special time in the year that we all want to expresses how much we care about others, in a way that goes beyond just words. That’s why every year we’re trying to buy perfect gifts. Some people would say that is not a rocket science. But I know that it’s not so easy to meet someone’s expectations.

Gift ideas for Him/Her

That’s why you are here. Looking for some inspiration. And I’m almost sure you will find here your perfect gift. So sit back, relax and grab yourself a nice cup of coffee. I did all work for you and put together best gifts selection for Him/Her.

Home Brew Kits

We all know someone who loves beer. So why not make that person happy and give her an opportunity to make her own beer. Believe me, it’s the best gift idea ever. My husband enjoys it and he was excited like a little boy. For me, it was more like a curiosity. I wanted to know if we are able to make a tasty beer by ourselves. Plus I like to know what’s inside my food and drinks. And with Home Brew, I can make beer from scratch using all natural, raw ingredients rather than a pre-mix. Their all-grain small batch homebrewing kits are easy to prepare and you don’t need a lot of space in your kitchen. Also, easy-to-follow recipes and customisable options make it a good fit for the novice to expert.

Hype and Zoella Christmas Launches

We love beauty products. Perfumes, lipsticks, body lotions, creams and many, many, many more. The only problem is that you have so many amazing brands on the market that’s hard to choose one. Especially on Christmas all brands preparing special gift sets. And very often I can’t resist and I buy too many of them. This year will be easier because I had the opportunity to check some of them. Zoella and Hype realised nice and affordable Christmas ideas for him/her

I’ve got lipstick set and perfumes. They are perfect for having them in a handbag. They are small and don’t need a lot of space which is good because my bag is full of surprises and has a problem with a free space. So if you are looking for perfect stocking fillers you should choose those sets without any hesitations.

Make your man feels special with Dobell

It’s always hard for me to choose a perfect gift for my husband because he has everything (beautiful and smart wife). He always says he doesn’t need anything. But there is something that every man will appreciate. A suit.

Best ideas for Christmas gifts

It’s like a beautiful dress for a woman or as a new pair of shoes. A man loves suits. And I don’t blame them because they look amazing wearing it.

Also, they like stylish accessories (wallets, belts, bow ties etc). To get the best ones you should go to check Dobell. They have everything that man needs for this Christmas.

You cannot open a book without learning something

My house is full of books. As me and my husband loves to read we’ve decided that we will try to pass that passion for books to our son. Sometimes I think he has more books than toys. If we don’t know what to buy to each other we simply check new titles on the market. This year we have two positions for the recommendation. First one is reserved for parents who want to understand their own kids and make their future a little bit more brighter. It’s Brighter Futures by Everlief Child Pyschology Team. It tackles many of the challenges that face a child of this age in the modern world. Maybe a child is struggling to live life to the full. A highly qualified team of UK-based clinical psychologists will guide parents through exactly what to do, from figuring out the roots of the problem, to making and reviewing a manageable plan of action. Each chapter follows the same approach and contains tried and tested strategies that are practical and focused on specific areas of concern. Parents are encouraged to consider changes which could make a big difference. After a couple of pages, I know it will be a really important book which will help us in our hard parenting life.

If you know someone who loves cooking and you don’t know what to buy for that person don’t worry I have something for you. It’s a really beautiful cookbook by Bryony Hill – Grow Happy, Cook Happy, Be Happy. The book is packed with practical gardening advice, cookery tips and mouth-wateringly easy-to-make recipes created to help you feel happy inside and out. Bryony Hill’s unique, friendly, relaxed style and instinctive warmth, guides you on a seasonal journey from garden to kitchen. I love that there are recipes for every season of the year. It’s a perfect book for everyone who’s looking for something new in their menus. And I have a good news for you.
