Gifts for women & men 2017

All week I’ve been sharing my gift guides, from tiny tinkers to expensive but awesome gifts for that big present. So we’ve sorted the kiddos and NOW it’s time for the grown ups.

The men and women, mums and dads, grandparents and friends – all the gifts that really rock for them! You should know the drill – top left, clockwise!

  1. This is your cookbook £15

I mentioned this in my children’s gift guides because it can be totally personalised by age, preferences and everything else. I love to cook (it’s one of the reasons I’m enjoying gousto so much!) and to have a book designed to my preferences with my name on it is ideal!

2. Mini Gingerbread house cutter mug hanger £15

This goes back to my love of baking and these are the CUTEST little stocking fillers ever. I’ve kindly been sent one of these and I’m making a few for my in law’s hamper and for friends/family. You can even make them for teachers – so if you have a crafty friend, this is a fab gift!

3. Personalised diary from Toad £various

I am a bit planner and every year I get a diary but I would LOVE one of these Toad diaries – they are beautifully simplistic, customisable AND they can even be monogrammed.

4. Sterling Silver Triangle Cufflinks £375

Powerful and geometric, this statement pair of cufflinks is a stylish Christmas gift for the trendsetters on your “nice” list. I remember cufflinks being a source of pride for Adam when he wore suits so I love a good pair of elegant cufflinks.

5. HP Sprocket gift set £179.99

I’m obsessed with this bundle! Not only have you got the HP sprocket which is amazeballs, but the gift set comes with an adorable carry case and album. Perfect for anyone who loves printing photos, creating scrapbooks or enjoying the new bullet journaling fad. I can’t recommend it enough!

6. Ps4 Virtual reality headset £400+

We’ve bought one of these because of the Digital kids show that we went to a few weeks ago where we tried it out – it was EPIC. Obviously you have to have a ps4 (there are others on the market but this is being given the nod as one of the top line ones!) but this is a must have for any gamer. VR is the future and the graphics on this are just unreal. I can’t wait to get ours out – it’s officially a gift for my husband but it’s become more a gift for the whole family as Toby has been begging for one since he went on a deep dive game!

7. GiftScents from Wax Lyrical £7.99

With three absolutely beautiful scents, this is SO the gift for scent/smelly lovers! I adore a good scent wafting around the house and these new reed diffusers are amazing!

8. Art print from Anna Wright £ various

Art collector (waves hello – it’s my weakness on holidays!)? Then you really ought to look at the amazing selection from Anna Wright, I’m obsessed with her Love Love Love print and I want one for my bedroom and I know my friend Kate would love one too!

9. Personalised paper cut map by Kartegraphik £various

Oh goodness I can’t express my love enough for these. As our first “foreign” city trip as a family to Lisbon was a few weeks ago, I asked the incredibly talented Kip to create one for me and I can’t express how much I love the map. Something so simple could mean something so special to a family member or friend.

10. 18ct White Gold and Diamond Pavé Wishbone Earrings £575

I want them. If you follow me on IG you will know I LOVE my earrings. Subtly elegant, these sumptuous white gold wishbone studs are known to bring luck – so I’m hinting here Adam 😉 . A wonderful Christmas gift, they are suitable for both everyday wear and for special occasions.

11. Wine subscription from The Wine Butler £various

Honestly, as the wife of a wine merchant, I feel like I am getting to know wine more and more all the time. I LOVE The Wine Butler, their organic wine is amazing, hangover free (to a degree obvs!) and hand selected for you according to preference. You can feed back, ask for specific wines and choose your faves.

12. Surviving Society tee £22

I love this t-shirt, it’s empowering and supportive all in one. Anyone who loves small brands with unique ideas and big hearts will adore this. Organic cotton and raising awareness of mental health – what more could you want to love about this stylish tee.
