Christmas Gift Ideas For Grown-Ups

 AD - This post contains PR samples and sponsored links.

We are venturing into December, which means there are less than 4 weeks till Christmas - can you believe it? Keeping with my yearly traditions I've put together a couple of Christmas gift guides. Hopefully, they'll inspire and give you a couple of ideas - especially if you are still scrambling for inspo. All items featured are PR samples, however, they are all products I recommend and will be gifting this year.

Kicking off this year's gift guide are lots of suggestions for those who like a nibble and a drink during the festive period. First on the list is a brand we opt for most years, Lindt. I received their Lindt Advent Calender, Lindt Lindor Selection box, and a Lindt Chocolate Teddy Bear - a present for me, my partner, and the kids. I don't need to tell you how delicious Lindt is but I will link to their website and across Lindt stores in the UK.

The Little Gin Company have pulled out all the stops when it comes to their Christmas gift selections - for gin lovers, like myself, of course. I was sent their home tasting kit which retails at £25.00 with free delivery! Included in the kit are x4 5cl bottles of Trailer Made gin and x4 Folkington's artisan mixers. I'd like to say that I've saved this for Christmas, however, that would be a lie! Big thumbs up from me - I'll be ordering in the future.

Would Christmas be the same without Opies? They've brought out a couple of new products just in time for Christmas and kindly sent them along with their classic cocktail cherries and pickled walnuts. New to the menu are the red berries with pink gin, apricots steeped in syrup infused with Famous Grouse Blended Scotch Whiskey, and figs with dark rum. Prices are all under £10 and they can be purchased online and in-store at most supermarkets.

ZeroWater is the only water filter brand that delivers the equivalent to purified bottled water into your home. Developed a pour-through system, with an aim to deliver the best filtration possible with their premium five-stage ion exchange technology, this filter removes virtually all total dissolved solids, a claim which no other filter can say. The 12 cup jug retails at £39.99 - more can be read on their website.

I've featured Mermaid Gin a couple of times, here on the blog, and on social media, however, he is something new! Mermaid Salt Vodka retails at around the £35.00 mark - depending on where you shop. It's described as a vodka from the Isle of Wight made with a small amount of rock sea salt to evoke the fresh sea air and the saltiness on your lips after a day at the coast, or indeed sailing on the surrounding waters! It's great with mixers, or just on the rocks!

For the sporty so and so's in our lives how about some sports equipment? Lockdown has made me want to pick up some of my favorite sporting activities and I'm guessing it's probably the same for others too. Badminton was one of my favourite sports back in school and a sport I want to get into again. These Babolat Badminton Rackets would make a fantastic and thoughtful gift, with prices starting at just £20.00.

Speaking of sports and the urge to move more there's a multitude of products such as skateboards, longboards, scooters, roller skates, clothes, accessories, and much more at I know that Noah is interested in skateboarding so perhaps I'll buy matching boards for him and his Dad. I could just see it now, a fun activity for them to learn together - they'd certainly look the part.

My Christmas is complete if I find some smellies under the Christmas tree and two of my newest favourite scents are Polly by Ted Baker and Daisy by Marc Jacobs. I can see why they are so popular, such timeless and chic scents - both brands can be found online, at Fragrance Direct and Perfume Direct with prices starting from £20.00.

Lockdown has changed me in many ways - I'm now a jigsaw lover, hurray! Gibsons’ Limited Edition Christmas Puzzle is back again and ‘This Way to Santa’ is the 18th puzzle in the popular series. Painted by the talented artist Tony Ryan, ‘This Way to Santa’ depicts the boys and girls who are getting in the Christmas spirit as they wait in the snow to visit Santa in his Christmas Grotto. With a present-laden sleigh and his trusty elf by his side, Santa has a treat for everyone on the ‘nice’ list! This 1000 piece puzzle is packaged in a shiny, eco-foiled gold box, and inside is a special, serial-numbered certificate to make it the ultimate collector’s item. It retails at £17.00 and available to order from their website. I can't wait to sit down on Christmas Eve with this puzzle.

Moving swiftly onto gifts for pets, or for pet lovers! HexBug doesn't just make toys for children, they make them for animals too! The HexBug Remote Control mouse retails at £14.99 and I can't wait to play with the cat, and dogs with it! The Happy Birthday and Welcome to the Family tins are by Fred Aldous Ltd. - with prices starting at £8.75.

Time for some stocking fillers brought to you by Zippo, Poo-Pourri, and Below the Belt Grooming. All products are very practical and would be received well by many members of my family. When a trusty pair of gloves will no longer cut it, you can call on Zippo to save the day. The Zippo Hand Warmer. Available in two compact sizes that fit perfectly into your coat pocket and a range of classic colours, providing gentle, odourless heat for up-to 12 hours. The Zippo handwarmer retails at £21.95. The Poo-Pourri and Fresh and Dry Balls wash - need I say anymore? Visit their websites for more wonderful stocking filler ideas.

Here we have more fantastic stocking filler suggestions from Bamigo and The Natural Barber CoBamigo’s premium collection of bamboo socks, t-shirts, pants, and pyjamas are available in a variety of colours and styles, making them ideal for the different men in your life. A sustainable and durable alternative to cotton, bamboo allows the skin to breathe, ensuring a fresh feel throughout the day, whilst looking effortlessly stylish. We received the James Socks 4 pack which retail at £24.99. The Natural Barber Co offers the perfect Christmas gifts for any man in your life. Not only are The Natural Barber Co products great for your hair, using natural ingredients which are free from petrolatum/ mineral oils, parabens, phtalates, synthetic fragrance, and other nasty chemicals but they are also great for the environment. The Hades Matte Paste is a lightweight thickening paste, ideal for fine and medium hair ensuring a light hold without weighing down hair. The Zeus Pomade creates the classic slick back with a glossy, natural finish. Both products are available on the website for £16.95 each.

How about some pure indulgence with Slow Ageing Skin products? This pair of products are glorious - the perfect relaxation combination. Even better when paired with the dreamy Slow Ageing Skin. This multisensorial elixir of intensely relaxing & soothing oils gently coax mind & body into harmonious balance. The set of both products are available from the website for £95.00.

Luxury body care is what it's all about and what we really need after this year. The Acqua Di Miele Toner, Silvian Skincare Radiance Balm, and N. 04 Dakar Skin Softening Body Cleanser would all make the most gorgeous stocking fillers - for both men and women alike. Two of these products are included in gift sets - more details can be found on their respective websites.

Last, but certainly not least we have energydots! energydots are low-powered magnets that have been programmed with natural frequencies to protect people (and pets) from the potentially harmful effects of electro-magnetic radiation (EMR) emitted from the wireless devices that we enjoy every day – from mobile phones to Wi-Fi routers. The clever (and stylish) discs can be attached to devices, worn or displayed in the home – working to bring positive energy and harmony to all around them. There are six DOTS in the range and each has a different recipe of frequencies for its specific use. Prices start at £25.00 and more details can be found on the website.

  1. I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again.
