For Her - 2015 Christmas Gift

2015 Christmas Gift

Those ladies in your life can be difficult to purchase for, gifts, presents, special occasions. I can confirm this as I know how indecisive I am when it comes to being asked what I would like for my birthday... Or Christmas for that matter. I am not overly materialistic, of course I appreciate the finer things in life, but when all is said and done I would rather see those around me get spoiled rotten. I would't blink an eye lid if there was nothing underneath the tree for me on Christmas day...But with ladies and Christmas in mind I thought I would share some of my top picks with you for Christmas 2015.

Stocking Fillers..

Who doesn't love a little bit of pampering? I love nothing more than shutting the world out when Winter hits, having a long bath, putting my slouchiest PJ's and slippers on, and finally spending an evening relaxing. The Baylis and Harding Slipper Set (£9.99) combined with the Therapearl Eyessential Eye Mask would make a fantastic combination.

Therapearl Eyessential Eye Mask provides 20minutes of soothing stress relief and relaxation while promoting the reduction of puffy eyes! A must over the festive season. Costing £7.99 from Superdrug it would be the ideal stocking filler, and happens to be the first ever hot and cold eye mask. What’s more it is re-useable so you can use it for 20minutes of relaxation time every day. The mask uses unique Pearl Technology which means it can retain its temperature.
