It’s the most wonderful time of the year . . . ding dong, ding dong!
I LOVE Christmas so here are a few ideas for gifts for your friends and family! I will be adding more as and when I take photos of my gifts . . . AKA when I get round to wrapping them and can actually find them!
If you had said to me 10 years ago “Charlie in 10 years time, record players are going to be huge!” I would have laughed in your face, but here we are! I got a turntable for Christmas last year and this years I have got one for my parents along with some classic vinyls! I think this is a great gift for the older generation as a lot of the records you can pick up in charity shops are of their era! I picked up the Crosley Cruiser Portable Briefcase Style Turntable Tweed Brown!
These next 2 gift ideas are things I actually treated myself to in the Black Friday sales! First up we have the Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote . . . perfect gift for someone who has Amazon prime or a perfect upgrade to the first generation Fire Stick!
Now for the ultimate DAB radio! Say hello to my Roberts Revival Mini in Black/Gold! My brother and his girlfriend have this in red and as soon as I saw It in their living room I knew I had to have one! A – its looks amazing and B – the sound quality, build and overall style is bloody amazing!
You can’t create an Xmas Gift Guide without including some kind of smelly! So here we have the ultimate range of Xmas Baubles brought to you by one of my faves . . . Molton Brown! This is the limited edition “Festive Bauble Gift Set” which includes 3 bauble shower gels, Vintage 2017 With Elderflower, Fabled Juniper Berries & Lapp Pine and Mesmerising Oudh Accord & Gold.
I got these last year as little present fillers so I’m so glad they are doing them again this year! I especially LOVE the Elderflower range and can see myself buying the shower/bath gels! Also these are perfect for Secret Santa’s!
I think as I get older I appreciate alcohol so much more! Back in the day I’m not going to lie it was all about getting drunk with my friends, but nowadays its all about that taste and a nice drink to chill and unwind with! For that reason I have included some beverages in my Xmas Gift Guide 2017.
Old Forester Kentuckey Bourbon – this particular whiskey is known for its history! Originally created in 1870 Louisville when alcohol was actually banned in the USA! It’s still produced by the same founding family and is officially the longest running Bourbon on the market today! For some kick ass recipes including the “Old Fashioned Whisky Smash” which I can’t wait to try over Christmas CLICK HERE! Stockists: Tesco, Asda – RRP: £30.00
Haig Club Whisky – Last year I featured Haig Clubman in my Luxe Gift Guide, but this year I’ve gone bigger and better and bring you the original Haig Club! I thought Haig Club was a pretty new brand, because of David Beckham’s involvement in the brand but it actually dates back to 1824! And come to think of it a few weeks ago I was in Greenwich, London and came across a really old Haig Club bottle! Everything about this Whisky screams luxury and it tastes incredible in a cocktail! I personal favourite is the Haig Club Green Tea & Grain. Stockists: Amazon, Tesco, Ocado, The Whisky Exchange – RRP: £45.00
Accessories – As I’m a GIN LOVER its only right I include this Men’s Society Gin Lover – Accessory & Tasting Set in my gift guide! I recently went on a gin tasting experience at Hotel du Vin in Brighton run by the Sussex Wine School and got to learn a lot about Gin and what botanical’s work well, 3 of those are included in this pack! Juniper berries, Star Anise & Hibiscus flowers! Also included in the pack are 2 2 G&T glasses, 2 Stirrers, 2 Coasters and a notebook & pencil! Perfect gift for a gin lover who wants to have a play around creating their perfect gin concoction!
What’s better than presents at Christmas? Tickets! So I picked up tickets for Holiday On Ice at the Brighton Centre for my mum, along with King & I tickets at the London Palladium and also got a Yo Sushi making class for my cousin! Obviously I will be there +1!
Check back for new additions to my GIFT GUIDE 2017! And let me know what you have on your Christmas list!
