Holidays at Home.
Gifting is hands down my favourite part of the holiday season. Seeing a loved one’s face light up when opening a gift that I put so much thought and effort into is just priceless. There’s nothing more important than sharing these kinds of memories with my close friends and family, especially when I don’t get to visit them that very often.
Next week, I’m going back to Lithuania for Christmas. So, I’ll be spending seven days talking about London and explaining everyone what a ‘blogger does’ for a living. Sounds fun, right? But on a serious note, I’m so incredibly lucky to have such a wonderful and supportive family. I couldn’t imagine the Christmas holiday without them! *grabs a tissue*
This season, I picked some of my favourite brands and put together a last-minute Christmas gift guide. Are you ready?! *plays cheesy Christmas songs in the background*
A Show of Stars.
It’s shocking to know that my Nan has never been in London. *shook* So, as her favourite grandson, I decided to look out for the brand that celebrates this delightfully whimsical world. Molton Brown has gift sets rich with seasonal luxuries and London in mind. Their festive wrapping is British-made in bespoke colours like bitter chocolate and celebrated in a signature grosgrain knot. I opted for their vintage with elderflower candle, shower gel and lotion set.
The Rare Blend.
Crafted in the heart of Jamaica, this rare golden rum blend is rich in mahogany hue, confident woody character and smooth robust taste. The Appleton Estate Rare Blend is produced in the lush Nassau Valley in Jamaica, which is the oldest rum distillery with over 265 years of experience. Therefore, this is a must-have item for any rum fan. Starts at £34.99.
The Cornerstone of a Great Day!
There’s no need for introduction, Cornerstone is my top shaving supply service of 2017! *once again, makes bold statements without any regrets* Cornerstone’s gift sets start at £30 and include a personalised razor handle, set of 6 blades, face scrub, shave gel, post-shave balm and travel blade cover. On top of that, the recipient will receive a £10 gift card to use on their next shaving set. What a wonderful time to master the art of shaving!
Skin ageing. Reversed.
Based on one of the most recent and important anti-ageing discoveries, Dr. Levy’s skincare products have been a vital part of my daily skincare regiment for months. Proven to boost your stem cell activity, Dr. Levy’s Booster Serum attracts and retains precious moisture to give that sought-after ‘plumping’ effect. Shea butter, vitamin E and aloe leaf juice work to calm and condition, while strengthening your skin’s defences. *found the secret to his eternal youth* Even though the price might be a little bit steep but your mother will thank you for the years to come!
An Inseparable Pair.
Sometimes, my obsession with smartphone cases and Apple Watch straps get a little bit out of hand. *orders one too many* From artist collections to make-your-own ones, there are many options for you to create that perfect gift for a tech-savvy loved one. Case Station currently runs daily Christmas deals and giveaways. So, you must check these guys out if you haven’t already! Starts at £19.99.
No Ordinary Designer Label.
Rugged good looks and sleek design make this Ted Baker watch a perfect companion for both your casual days out and formal suit and tie events. A coin-edge bezel rounds a sleek gunmetal watch marked with clean bar indexes and a date window on the grey sunray dial… Or also known as, a timeless timepiece for a millennial-mindset individual. *thumbs up*
The Whiskey Collector.
Every man in my family is a whiskey fan. So, there’s a huge pressure for me to find a good quality whiskey that is rich in taste. Woodford Reserve Double Oaked is ideal for whiskey lovers wishing to grow their collection. This double barrelling of mature Woodford Reserve allows the spirit to extract an additional amount of soft, sweet oak character. The result is a complex
flavour of vanilla, dark caramel, hazelnut, apple and spices with a long, creamy finish and lingering hints of honeyed apple. Priced at £66.
