Christmas Gift Ideas For Grown Ups


AD - This post contains PR samples and affiliate links.

With Christmas just a matter of weeks I thought it was about time that I posted my last, but certainly not least, gift guide of the year - this one aimed at the grown-ups! Catch up on my previous gift guides here; for kids, stocking fillers for kids, and festive food and drink.


1. Gifts from Baylis & Harding - prices from £2.00
I don't know about you but I love receiving bath sets and candles at Christmas - they always make smile. I recently received this huge box of Baylis & Harding products, from a couple of their lines; Beauticology, Beauticology Unicorn, Fuzzy Duck and more. I was really impressed with the range of products available; candles, hand wash, hand cream, bath bombs, bubble bath, soaps, and so on. There's really something for everyone in the family. My personal favourites are the Unicorn Rainbow Fizzers and Fuzzy Duck bubble bath which is in a Christmas pudding shaped bottle. See the full range on their website, or order today at Amazon.


2. Willow & Finn Candles - from £8.00 each
I don't know many people who don't enjoy a nice candle and a brand I've recently discovered is Willow & Finn who specialise in hand-poured, soy wax candles - all of which have unique scents made with pure essential oils and luxury fine fragrance oils – with a nod to creating scents that both boost the mood or ignite a memory. They are also doing their part for the enivornment in making their candles resusable, and refillable - send the empties back to them and you receive a discount on your next order. Prices start at £8.00 for the travel-sized candles and £22 for the full size.


3. Womens Mule Slippers - £29.50
Slippers are another item on my Christmas checklist and you can't go wrong with a pair from Pretty You London. These slip-on mule slippers don't just look pretty, they are extremely comfortable too with their extra thick underfoot padding. They look amazing with the colourful pom pom detailing against the grey faux fur. They are described as long-lasting and I can see why - the quality is next to none.


4. Klean Kanteen Bottle - £29.95
Perfect for those who enjoy a warm, or cold drink on the go and who want to do their part for the environment. The Klean Kanteen Reflect bottle holds 27oz of liquid, is lightweight and is made of three materials; sustainably harvested bamboo, stainless steel, and food-grade silicone. It features no paint or plastic - it's very on-brand with the message they want to promote - to change the way people drink.


5. Aveeno Mum & Baby Giftset - £20.00
Sometimes, as parents you forget to take care of your own skin - focusing everything on the children and this set is great for ticking two boxes, in one. The gift set contains a moisturising lotion for the parent, a hair and body wash and moisturising lotion for baby - as well as a soft teddy bear comforter. 


6. Dr. Paw Paw Hello Gorgeous Christmas Gift Set - £9.99
A great stocking filler for beauty lovers this Dr. Paw Paw Hello Gorgeous gift set contains three of their classic 10ml balms including favourites such as; original, peach pink and ultimate red balm. Only a little bit of the balm is needed at any given time, so each bottle lasts absolutely ages.

7. Rosalique 3 in 1 Anti Redness Miracle Formula - £30.00
Rosalique 3 In 1 Anti-Redness Miracle Formula SPF50 is a bio-scientific product for sensitive and inflamed skin. Suitable for all skin types, it's scientifically formulated with 5 active ingredients and it treats, conceals and protects redness-prone and sensitive skin. It's free from parabens, paraffin, perfume and is Cruelty-Free.


8. Helly Hensen Business Beanie - £20.00
Trendy, yet practical this beanie from Helly Hensen is ideal for cold weekdays when you need to dress for work, look smart, all while keeping your head warm. It's made from 50% Polyester & 50% Wool, features soft PrimaLoft yard, is double-layered, and is finished with a classic and subtle logo design.


9. Nextbase Dash Cam - £69.99
An ideal gift for those on the road; a Nextbase dash cam. Nextbase is the UK’s leading dash cam manufacturer and for good reason too. They offer a wide range of affordable and easy to use dashcams with HD quality video recording. There's a dash cam to suit every budget and they are a great gift suggestion for those hard to buy for friends, ones that like to drive of course! With 1080p HD recording and an improved lens, this model, the 222 offers full HD for everyone. You simply install the power cable directly into the mount which allows the Dash Cam to be wireless - you are then good to go! 


10. men-ü Travel Kit - £34.95
This travel kit from men-u is perfect for those who like to travel, whether it's for work or play. Within the bag, you'll find shampoo, shower gel, shaving cream, hair product, and a skin refresher set. The Daily Refresh Shampoo gently cleanses and refreshes, adding moisture to the hair whilst the Citrus & Mint Shower Gel includes moisturisers to help the skin from drying & a fresh fragrance to give you a lift. The skin refresher set is the ultimate, ultra-concentrate toolkit for healthy skin. A good shave with men-ü Shave Crème is not just about a smooth surface without nicks or irritation but it is the start of healthy skin providing exfoliation a woman can only dream of! Finish the look with Liquifflex – great flexi-hold and suitable for all hair types and styles. Practically weightless and thickens the hair, so great for extra body and volume. Completed with a lightweight Stripes toiletry bag which includes a separate internal compartment for your razor or toothbrush.


11. Buy A Gift Smartbox - £49.99
Make the smart choice this Christmas with a Smartbox from Buy a Gift - this £49.99 gift card allows the lucky recipient to choose their own experience, with the choice of thousands of relaxing, exciting and indulgent gift experiences at locations throughout the UK. Choose an experience for yourself, for some well deserved alone time - or opt for something to enjoy with a friend. Adrenaline-fuelled adventures on offer include scuba diving, zorbing, indoor skydiving and ziplining, while the more relaxing options include spa days, pampering treatments and chocolate/wine tasting events. With this much to choose from there really is something for everyone.


12. Wicked Gummy Co. Vitamins - from £19.99
I don't know about you but I like to take my vitamins daily and it becomes so much more exciting when they are in gummy form. Wicked Gummy Co. Vitamins have just launched a range of five Vegan Society registered nutritional gummies; a probiotic, a sleep aid, multivitamin, vitamin d, and hair, skin, and nails. The gummies have also won a 2019 Best Of Health award in the Vegan Supplement Category after launching just three months ago. 


13. Lyle And Scott Core Backpack Black - £35.00
Sometimes you can't beat practicality when it comes to gift-giving - sometimes you need to opt for a product someone needs. The Lyle And Scott Vintage Core Backpack has two adjustable padded shoulder straps with a woven handle on top and zip fastening to the main compartment which has two pouch compartments inside. An additional zipped compartment is on the front with the signature Lyle And Scott Eagle logo stud in yellow and black. I have wrapped this up for Nick for Christma (shhh) and I know he's going to be delighted when he opens it - a functional, practical, yet stylish item that we are probably going to use every time we venture out. You can purchase it online at Mainline Menswear.


14. Philip Kingsley Supplements - from £30.00
Did you know that Philip Kingsley has a range of supplements and multivitamins? I didn't until a few weeks ago and after receiving samples I happen to think they'd make a great gift. Their range consists of three types of supplements; Root Complex, Tricho Complex, and Biotin Boost - designed to maximise the strength of the hair and growth, can also help ward off illness, not to mention also bolster your nails too. 


15. Mermaid Gin - £45.00
Gin is all the rage at the moment and I'm totally on board with it. I love discovering new favourites and an impressive bottle is one way to catch my eye. Mermaid Gin has done just that, the bottle is gorgeous - the contents? Even more so. It’s a smooth yet complex blend that features the freshness of organic lemon zest, the peppery notes in grains of paradise and a hint of sea air from fragrant rock samphire. The latter, foraged from the Isle of Wight’s cliffs, is known locally as ‘Mermaid’s Kiss’, hence the gin’s name! It's certainly a must-have for gin lovers.


16. The John Frieda Detox & Repair Range - from £5.99
Last, but certainly not least we have the John Frieda Detox & Repair range which is specifically formulated to remove impurities from the hair’s surface, to create a clean slate for the active conditioning ingredients to get to work, enabling it to condition more deeply and effectively. Nourishing avocado oil and antioxidant-rich green tea restore hair moisture and softness, leaving you with instantly healthier, shinier hair. The products include; Detox & Repair Shampoo, Detox & Repair Conditioner, Detox & Repair Masque, and Detox & Repair Care and Protect Spray - all of which are available at Boots.

Which of these items do you like the sound of the most?

  5. Thank you for the lovely ideas. I always start off early with my shopping then get to the difficult to buy for people and it stalls. The refillable candles are a good idea.
