Christmas Gift Guide 2016 – Women’s

Viola Collar from The Shirt Company

For the fashion concious lady we have these fabulous collars from The Shirt Company. I think they are fun and great for dressing up a going out or the smart business outfit. This is the Viola.

Peony in Black - The Shirt Company

This collar is not quite as formal as the Viola. It’s known as the Peony. Very pretty in black. The Shirt Company really has lots of pretty shirts and tops available on their online shop.

Why not take a look and treat someone this Christmas?

Passionfruit and Lemon Curd from Scarlett & Mustard

I love all types of curds. On toast, great for using in cakes oh and my favourite – on scones with Cornish clotted cream. Yum! This passionfruit and lemon curd is amazing from Scarlett & Mustard. Fresh and zingy. A great little gift. Why not add their blackcurrent & Star Anise, Lime & Mint and Toffee Apple curds to a little gift basket?

The Book Of Everyone

A couple of weeks back I reviewed The Book of Everyone. These books really do make great personalised gifts. This one is for my husband for Christmas, but I’ve gone and ordered one for my sister as well.

I love the way they take you on a journey back in time. You can learn about the day you were born, What was the number one single, amongst other facts.

A great gift for that person you never know what to buy for them.

Grab the mistletoe and get ready to find the perfect gift for that special someone this Christmas.

Warner Bros. has the ultimate selection, whether you’re looking for him, for her, or for festive favourites to get the whole family in the Christmas spirit.

The Mad Max blu-ray anthology is perfect for some ‘Mel Gibson action’ in the early days. These films you can watch over and over again and never get bored.

Soaps from The Wild Irish Skincare

I’m totally in love with these gorgeous 100% natural ingredient soaps from The Wild Irish Skincare. Beautiful smelling as soon as I opened the bag! This little gift set would make a wonderful present. Organic seaweed infused superior quality guest sized soap bars in different varieties.

Argan & Squalane Neck cream from Chambers & Co.

A couple of months back I reviewed some wonderful skincare creams from Chambers & Co. And now I was lucky to be sent this amazing Argan & Squalane face and neck cream. It helps with moisturising and skin regeneration all day long. Suitable for dry and normal skin.


The skincare creams I reviewed would make excellent gifts. My mum is a fan of the Aloe Vera hand balm. She has very dry skin on her hands and this has worked wonders for her. The pot really will last and last. Well worth the money!

  1. Great suggestions! I love the book of everything. & the spice mix looks good – wonder if they would work well in rock cakes. #KCACOLS

  2. Fab list. I actually saw that Passionfruit & Lemon Curd the other day and thought it looked good! We often do the stuff you’re own crackers but I’ve never seen reusable ones before – great idea! #kcacols

  3. So many lovely products! I know it was a women’s gift guide but I love the sound of that personalised book and may have to get one for my husband – he is impossible to buy for! #KCACOLS

  4. I sometimes think “smelliest” are a cheat gift that don’t show a lot of imagination however there are some really lovely and different ones here that I’d consider buying for family members and friends. Additionally, as someone who never knows what to buy her bro in law, that book could be the answer! #KCACOLS

  5. great round up – I love finding things that are a bit different from the same old. its nice to try and find things people aren’t expecting too. those curds and jams look amazing and im loving the bird feeder :0) #KCACOLS

  6. The crackers are exactly what I’ve been looking for! Every year i hate the waste and the kids are always disappointed with the naff presents inside. I’m going to invest in these! #KCACOLS

  7. What a fab selection of gifts and all pretty good prices . We have the same lemon curd it’s amazing love it on toast In the morning #KCACOLS

  8. Great tips about The Book of Everyone – I keep seeing that popping up on social media and have been thinking about getting it for someone for Christmas! Will do now! Thanks! #KCACOLS

  9. Cracking ideas. Present season is here! Food gifts are always a winner so love the look of the curd – tried to make some once (disaster zone) so always on the look out for new makes. #kcacols

  10. I always make up my own crackers at Christmas, that way everyone gets something they will actually use. I usually put a photo magnet or keyring in for the grandparents, can’t go wrong with anything with photos of the kids on! Thanks for linking up to the #GiftGuideLinky
