Blogmas Day 8 - Gift Ideas For The Dog

Hello everyone, welcome back to Blogmas day 8 and yet another gift guide. I can't believe how quickly this month is going - this is only 1 of 2 gift ideas posts left. I usually do a gift guide for animals in general, but because I have a dog, I decided to pick things that I know she would love. 

This cute champagne bottle squeaks and will probably be chewed to pieces after a couple of days but for £3 you can't go wrong. 

This again is cheap and cheerful, coming in at just £1

Trixie loves playing fetch and even more so, loves playing tug of war, so this Christmas pudding frisbee would come in perfect and costs £4

Again, another cheap and cheerful toy is this one in the shape of a Christmas tree. Lets face it, they will also look pretty in Instagram photos too! This cute toy comes in at £1

I know Trixie would love this pigs in blankets tug toy because I bought her one last year and she loves it. Whats more is its still going strong and for £6, I might pick up another one. 

How cute is this santa ball! This costs just £2

Onto non-toy items, how about some dog beer! This gift set comes with two bottles of beer and some chips, therefore, your dog can have some at Christmas & at New Year. The gift set comes in at £6.49

With all of the food lying around over Christmas, its important to make sure your dog isn't eating something they shouldn't, so why not pick up this Christmas Banquet by Wainwrights for just £1.69

Last but not least are these Whimzees dental treats. I love these because they last ages and it means that for just £8, I can watch the Christmas tv programmes in piece. 

I hope you enjoyed today's gift ideas post. All of the items are available from Pets At Home - top tip, pick up a VIP magazine first, so that you can use the vouchers that are always inside to save yourself some more money! Make sure you check back tomorrow for another Blogmas post.

To help me with the post, I've enlisted the help of a few friends to give me some suggestions.

There are so many different styles & colours, with something to fit most budgets.

Blogmas Day 6 - Lush Christmas Haul - Collab With BeautyByElliex

Hello everyone. Welcome to Blogmas day 6, which an exciting collab with the lovely Beauty By Ellie. We are both suckers for bath bombs and recently went on a shopping spree where we both spent quite a bit in Lush. Make sure you go and check out Ellie's post (CLICK HERE) once you have read mine because she bought some different things to me.

I always buy this Golden Wonder bath bomb which I love to save for Christmas Eve. Its now become part of a tradition and over the years, I've made a bit of a routine of pampering myself on Christmas Eve. 

Candy Mountain bubble bar was actually one of the first things I ever tried from Lush and I love how many bubbles it creates. 

I used to buy the melting snowman but as they don't do it anymore, I thought I would go for this bubbleroon instead. 

It wouldn't be Christmas without the butterbear. I probably get through about 4 or 5 of these each year. I love the scent as well as how it makes my skin feel. 

Although the Snow Angel bath melt has been out for a few years but I've never actually bought it before, so I'm excited to try it out. 

How cute is this Christmas Sweater! I haven't seen this one before so maybe its a new one but I'm definitely looking forward to trying it. 

You have to love a Christmas pudding at Christmas & how pretty is this one!

Last but not least is this one which I can't actually remember what its called (Oops!) It smells amazing though so I know I'm going to love it.

As I mentioned above, make sure you check out Ellie's post and maybe leave her a little comment. I'll be back with another post tomorrow for Blogmas Day 7.

Blogmas Day 4 - Christmas Advent Calendars

Hello everyone and welcome back to another day of Blogmas! This month already feels like it going to fly by so I'm going to try and keep this post short but sweet. 

Lets face it - everybody seems to be bringing out advent calendars this year. There are so many different ones on the market, how can you possibly pick one? If you've followed me for a while, you may remember that last year I chose the Sanctuary Spa advent calendar, partly because of the price and partly because I have always loved their products and knew I would use them all. I found that advent calendar really useful in finding new products that I liked - my most favourable one had to be the body scrub, which I still use each week and am probably on about my 5th jar! 

I decided quite early on that I wanted to buy myself another one this year and after spending hours looking online at all of the options, I decided on the ASOS one. It was a bit more pricey than the one I bought last year, but I've noticed that they all seem to be going up in price now everybody wants one. I have tried to stay away from any spoiler posts/videos so that it will be more of a surprise when I open each door but I have to say I've found it difficult not to open up each one already! The box itself is pretty and would make the perfect backdrop to festive photos.
Because I am a complete child at heart, I will also have a lovely chocolate one to open each morning too. 

I also did a spot of online shopping recently and had the option to purchase the Marks & Spencer calendar. I'm not sure Trixie would be happy about this though because I bought her a new Christmas jumper to make up my basket to the £35 required. If you don't know already, you have to spend £35 to be eligible to buy the calendar for £35, which although may sound a lot, its probably just a couple of presents or an outfit for a Christmas party. I decided that I would buy the calendar and then give it to my mum. I also knew that some of the items inside the calendar my mum wouldn't necessary want or use and that she would then give some of the products back to me. So I will therefore get to sample a bit of the M & S one as well!

My dad is very Bah Humbug when it comes to Christmas and told me that he definitely didn't want one, even a chocolate one! So he therefore missed out on any beer ones, however, I did buy my boyfriend Dan one. He chose the Lego Star Wars advent calendar which I can't really comment on because a) Please don't hate me but I have never watched anything remotely Star Wars related and b) I'm going to be pretty annoyed at having to pick up pieces of Lego for the next month. Price wise, I didn't think it was too bad at £25, especially as you get something to show for it at the end. 

What advent calendar have you chosen this year? Or are you doing another form of advent calendar such as the kindness one? 

Remember to pop back tomorrow for another Blogmas post!

Blogmas Day 2 - Gift Ideas For Her

Hello everyone and welcome to today's Blogmas post which is of course is the first of my gift ideas. I have been doing these for a number of years and have had great feedback from them so I thought I would bring them back again this year. I have changed it slightly though, because I'm only going to be sharing with you seven items. I figured that there are so many other great gift guides out there that I didn't want to make a super long post, so instead I have chosen just 7 of my favourites.

Okay, so this is definitely a present if money was no option but I really wanted to include it. This Apple iMac 5K would be perfect for either her or him but I wanted to include it today. It is available from Curry's for £1749

When I saw this felt bedside caddy I thought it was such a good idea. I like to keep so many things near me at bedtime such as a book, lip balm, tv remote etc and I thought the grey would fit in with so many colour schemes. This is available from for £14.99

Can you tell there's a grey theme this year? Lets face it, who wouldn't love some cosy slippers and a matching hot water bottle. This cute set is available from Prezzybox for £19.99

Another set of slippers but these are great because you can pop them in the microwave. As someone who is always cold, I think this is such a good idea. These are available from Prezzybox for £19.95

This is such a tech item but I wanted to include it because I've heard so many great things about it. This Dyson supersonic hair dryer gift set is available from Curry's for £299.99

How cool is this? I'm not sure how you would wrap them though but they come in various different designs, depending on what treats you would like. You can pick these up from Prezzybox for £25.99

Last but not least, a selfie light. This would come in so handy and is the type of thing that you would love to receive but wouldn't necessarily buy yourself. These are available from Prezzybox for £17.99

I hope you enjoyed the first of my gift guides. Make sure you check back tomorrow to see what Blogmas day 3 has in store.
