Gifts for adults


I bet you thought I was going to forget you guys didn’t you? Well, fear not, I am nothing if not thorough when it comes to gift giving. I have called this “gifts for adults” but as it is based on my personal preferences it could be considered a gifts for women guide really. I know there are a couple of items like the wine decanter, the luxury coffee and the chilli that are unisex but everything else really is geared at mums because, spoiler alert, I’m a mum.

Same as before, top left clockwise:

1.) Unicorn mug

I’ve just missed out on buying this for myself and boy do I wish I had done! You can buy a bowl to match it too…

2.) Mum’s diary

What I really love about this is that it is tailored to suit a family, a whole family, in one book. Having three kids, a business and a husband who – by his own admission – is like one of the kids half the time, I need to know what is going on and at the end of this year I find myself trying to cram everything into one diary which has a box of about 2 x 2 inches. It’s a jumbled mess. This has 4 additional columns for each family member, plus my own main one and even a spot to write down dinner plans. Have you read my post about planning dinner? If not I talk about how planning can save you moola in the long run, this would help you keep on track. It would also give you the perfect space to write your school trips for each relevant child, work commitments or hobby activities for hubs and then all your stuff to. Absolute essential for any busy woman.

3.) Hottest Chilli powders matchbox set

Anyone who knows me will know that I am a chilli nutter. I eat chilli with everything and I eat it HOT. If you have a chilli lover in the house this would be a perfect inexpensive gift – powder is often hotter than paste and stays fresh for longer too so perfect for pepping up a con carne or marinades. Boom, let the fire commence.

4.) Kantha Scarf from Jewelled Buddha

I can happily hold my hands up and say that I have a scarf obsession. I’ve always loved them but as I’ve gotten older I’ve seen so many more uses for them, I swear they are wonderful things. I have always had a love for kantha too, the details, the artistry that goes into the material so these stunning scarves were a no-brainer for my guide. I am especially in love with their beautiful green and yellow, green and purple and floral earth styles, but there is one for everyone.

5.) Organic Aromas diffuser

I actually wrote a dedicated post about Organic aromas as I love them so so much. I really love fresh scents, it’s something that with 3 males, 1 baby, 2 dogs and a cat in the house I can’t have enough of but aerosols are bad for you and expensive. This diffuser is wonderful, totally heat free and the oils you buy for it are anywhere and everywhere (though Organic aromas make the most amazing kits to go with it). It literally slots into any room and is SO pretty.

6.) Black circle coffee

If you follow the blog then you will know that I am what the experts would call a “coffee addict”. I have never been one to disagree with experts, so I am quite happy to hold my hands up and say I love me some coffee. I love the different options from Black circle coffee and luxury coffee for my cafetiere is always on my list.

7.) Nordly’s scented candle

This is just such a delight to behold. I have already mentioned my affection for scented delights and this is something that is a work of art and a treat for the senses. Super stylish, effortlessly beautiful and a wonderful gift for any candle lover. is fast becoming one of my favourite online interior design stores, made all the better by a beautiful showroom in Sheffield which is only an hour away from me!

8.) Luxury stationary from Valo Lifestyle

Not only do I LOVE the stationary from Valo, but I also love their jewellery. They have such a lovely range and I am a huge fan of their modern, chic style. I especially like their planners and notebooks with inspirational quotes. They make the perfect stocking filler, or an excellent bundle gift for any freelancer! Valo have also kindly offered a discount code to go alongside their gift guide feature, just add VALOTR25 at the checkout to get  fab 25% off the whole range! How fab is that?!

9.) Matilda Necklace

This necklace is a favourite of mine this year and I can’t begin to explain how much I love it. While it may seem like a normal necklace it is so much more. Each one is unique and tailored for your children’s birthstones. You can have up to four (though I would image there is scope for more…) and each stone represents your child in a very unique way that isn’t tacky or overly large. I know there are lots of personalised items out there but the wear-ability of this necklace clinches it for me.

10.) Wine decanter

I love this – isn’t it beautiful? Adam works in wine so he will frequently bring home delicious bottles of wine from work and we have never had a decanter. If you drink a bottle together in one sitting then I strongly suggest getting one of these, and you can’t get much more stylish than this one.

    I need a wine decanter in my home and the one you have written about it has such an elegant design. I am also a fan of good quality coffee (I never drink instant) so a good pack would be a great choice as a present.

    Oh my Gosh I l,ove that Unicorn cup and will be adding it to my wishlist! My favourite item however, has to be the wine decanter. It is so stylish and stunning. I would love to have something like this, especially if it was brought as a present for me!
