Adult Gift Guide 2018

Christmas 2018 is fast approaching and every year I am sure your with me that we get stuck for ideas.

Adults are the ones I find most tricky so here are a few ideas for the ones you may buy for.

For the Travellers

Do you know someone well travelled? My mother in law travels all over America and Europe twice a year and wants to see more places while she still can.

This scratch globe is a great way to document your travels and keep track of where you have been.

She will love this gift this year as its something different.

My other half is a nightmare to buy for year in year out. Next year we are going on our first family holiday abroad and I found the perfect gift. A Zippo passport Wallet .

 A Genuine leather passport holder de-bossed with the Zippo logo. This is a well made and super strong passport holder which will last many years to come I am sure of it. A great investment for a male traveller.

For the Cooks

The Spice Pioneer is a great subscription box for people who like to cook and try new flavours.

From then on all the spices and flavours needed to create the most exotic and tasty meals from every continent of the world will arrive every month, conveniently boxed to fit through your letterbox. There’s even a music playlist to keep you smiling while you cook.

This is the gift that keeps on giving month after month.

For the Relaxer

Last year I discovered Bath oils and have been hooked ever since.

The way your skin feels after bathing in a natural oil is incredible.

Olverum is a unique and highly concentrated, therapeutic bath oil which contains 10 pure essential oils, carefully blended to work synergistically. Accordingly, an Olverum bath is a very effective way to naturally relieve  stress and help you achieve a great nights’ sleep. It is also a great way to ease aching or sore muscles (such a treat after a workout!) and is the perfect soothing antidote to a cold or flu. All with a gorgeously aromatic, unisex scent.
This is by far my favourite oil on the market.

For The Driver

I don’t know about anyone else but having kids my car stinks of wet wellies, left over food and bad trumps lol.

Since having P I went off the liquid air fresheners in case he got his hands on it, and the paper ones just don’t smell for long enough.

Yankee Candle have brought out a beautiful holder with a scent filled disc inside, not to mention how beautiful it looks in my car it smells incredible and I’ve had this is a few weeks and still smells great.

I would be soooo happy to receive a few of these in my stocking this year.

For People that cover alot of miles and see day to day the effects that bad drivers and road rage has on the roads, why not get them something super useful and possibly invaluable.

Nextbase have a wide range of Dash cams for all types of drivers. I have got the 112 for my nephew who is a new driver. Its small and compact so won’t distract him and its easy to click and go. It records in 720p HD which shows up anything that happens in front of your car clear as day.

For The Fashionista

If you know someone who likes to stand out in a crowd and go the extra mile a fashion a piece from Opposuits will be right up their street.

I ordered the 3 piece Lumberjack suit and it arrives beautifully boxed and wrapped in tissue. The quality is fab, but you would expect that as it isn’t a cheap suit.

The range of sizes available are super impressive and there is a range of styles to suit all trends.
I am that impressed with this suit I have organised a christmas Bash were the men must adore a funky suit and the ladies a festive dress.

I am making sure my other half gets his wear out of this fab suit for sure.

If the someone you love at Christmas likes a bit of golf in their spare time why not treat them to some fab Golf Crowd T-Shirts.

These are high quality T-shirts with great puns and slogans. My father in law is golf mad as is the hubby so we have made a few purchases this year from golf crowd that I am super chuffed with.

They even offer kids golf gifts too perfect for my father and son duo.

For The Social Drinker

Now I don’t know about you but I love a tipple every now and again, but even more at Christmas.

I find I go more out of my comfort zone at Christmas and try new things. I am not going to lie I have totally jumped on the Gin Craze this year. My only issue was I didn’t have a Gin Glass nor could I find any that suited my “Extra” personality. Until I came across Dartington Crystal Glitz Gin glasses. These beautiful glasses come gift boxed making them the perfect gift.

They have Swarovski crystal element and would not look out of place in any fancy glass case on display. These glasses make me happy when I’m having my tipple.

If you buy people token gifts or stocking fillers MiniVino is the perfect purchase for you. Available in Red, White and Rose. These single serve wines are perfect for on the go or a one off treat.

My sister in laws are going to love these in there stocking this year.

Are you a lover of bubbles but not expensive champagne? I am!

I have found the perfect alternative- Barefoot Bubbly Pinot Grigio and its blooming gorgeous. The perfect mix of sweet and zestyness. A super affordable alternative and a perfect party pop bottle from a well known brand.

What are you hoping to receive this Christmas?
