Yup, I'm a giver.


That's right guys, you heard it here first - Chelsea loves to give. Okay, time to simmer down now, as I'm obviously talking about Christmas presents. In fact, all gift-giving occasions. I'll practically befriend anybody if it means I might get the chance to buy them a birthday present or something. It's a problem I'm learning to deal with...

I thought I would show you a few gift ideas I have already bought for friends and family. Yes, I'm one of those people who has everything sorted before December has begun. Luckily the people these are for probably don't read my blog (so glad some people don't understand what a blog is - haha) so let's get to business!
Twinings Ceramic Tea Pot - £16
This cute Twinings teapot was the first thing I bought. I love the design, and was rather tempted to keep it for myself. Sadly, our kitchen has a very strong red vibe, and as Joe's football team are red, a blue teapot would be a big no! Boys, ey? It comes with a few bags of tea, in English Breakfast and Earl Grey, which is perfect for the person I have this in mind for. 

Joules Fantastic Flask set - £18
Keeping with the tea feel I've got going on, I picked this lovely Joules set up for one of Dylan's uncles. They travel a lot by train, so I thought a nice flask could be filled with their favourite winter drink, and well, cleanliness is close to godliness, so why not include some face and body wash? I love the tartan, and it's very on trend. Get you, trendy receiver of this gift! 

Sanctuary Luxury Travel Treats - £12
If you know someone who travels off a lot, then a set like this would be perfect. All the items included are 100ml or less and it comes in a cute little bag. As it's from Sanctuary Spa, it's all a bit luxurious and smells absolutely divine. Plus it's orange, and I love orange. Another big plus for me, is that it includes a bath float, which seems to be the latest thing with bathing products. I'd love to try it for myself, but alas, I am without a bath. Sadtimes! 

Laura Ashley Ultimate Indulgence Gift Set - £35
This last item, I bought for myself, with the intention that I could take a few of the items and place them in a hamper I'm making. I'm cheap like that, you see. But hey, there's only so many things I can use, so why not? Anyways, this really is the ultimate indulgence - Laura Ashley have certainly got that right! The cute box has a lovely drawstring bag inside, which contains so many wonderful miniatures in there, including hand lotion, a shower poof, and plenty of other sweet smelling goodies. I can't wait to start storing my own things in the box, as it's so pretty. I'm hoping that I can take inspiration from it and finally decorate our bedroom with chirpy birdies and delicate flowers. 


Are these things you'd buy for those special people in your life? 
Or would you keep them for yourself? haha :)
