Christmas time is well on its way! I’m a BIG lover of trying to find just the right gift and so I’ve got a wide variety of lovely gifts to recommend to you today. Many of which I think are must have Christmas gifts! Be sure to check out my Christmas gift guide for 3 year olds, and for 7 year olds while you’re here if they’re relevant.

Joby Podzilla Beauty Set Magsafe

Whether you want to choose a gift for the content creator in your life, or just want to take better quality photos and videos yourself, the Joby Beamo MagSafe Podzilla Beauty Kit is absolutely fantastic. 

A flexible tripod with a phone mount and a portable MagSafe ring light to help you take perfect well-lit photographs with ease. You can adjust the legs on the tripod to get the perfect angle and you can use the light for both selfie and rear facing cameras thanks to the brilliant flippable design. There are even 4 different levels of brightness helping you light your videos and photographs with ease. 

Social Dining Banquet Experience for Two at Restaurant OXA by Andrew Sheridan and Jake Smith

We are big fans of gifting experiences and as a household with no evening childcare I’ll be gifting Thomas a nice stay in a hotel. A two night stay at Manor of Groves will be the perfect way for Tom to recharge, recuperate and have some much needed rest from our little ones for a night or two as well.

I love packages like this from Buyagift as you often can opt to have breakfast, dinner or even usage of spa facilities.

For me winter is all about wrapping up warm, being snug and cosy too. These Moshulu Tiree sheepskin mule slippers are available in a variety of colours, including petal pink, tan, indigo, purple and slate in sizes from 3-8 with a selection of half sizes available.

These have super cosy collars and soft sheepskin uppers. The soles are lightweight with soft steps and they are fantastic for wearing around the house to keep cosy, warm and be comfortable too. 

Von Haus Heated throw blanket in pink

Snuggling up with a hot chocolate, a good book and a candle lit is one of my favourite evening activities during the colder months. This pink heated throw blanket, from VonHaus, is perfect to stay warm AND save money on heating costs

This plush pink heated throw blanket has a remote, so you can control it from the comfort of your chair, which comes with nine different temperature settings so you can find the perfect toasty level for your needs. There is even a timer, to make sure it turns off if you forget about it, and the double flannel with a fleece lining makes this soft, comfortable and perfect for cosy evenings.

This badminton set comes with net, posts, 4 rackets and 2 shuttlecocks. It has a carry case and is perfect for use in the garden or even when holidaying at leisure parks.

We all have that loved one who loses things constantly. In my home it is me! The Tile Mate, and Tile Pro, are designed to help with finding everyday items such as bags, keys and more. There is a free app you can use and you just attach this to your item of choice and then you can locate it with ease. 

A Bluetooth range of up to 250 foot makes this great for finding items in your home, car or at a friend’s house. This can even be used with Alexa, Google and Siri. 

Beat Blast game

Beat Blast, the rhythm game, is going to be a huge hit in my home this Christmas. A competitive fast-paced music game where you have five levels of difficulty and 5 different types of music including EDM and hip hop.

Players have to slash, swipe, bash and jab to score the most points. You can play in solo or party mode and challenge your friends to see who is the ultimate champion. 

Joking Hazard offensive card game

This game, *Joking Hazard, which is NOT safe for kids (or work!), is brought to you by the minds behind the webcomic Cyanide & Happiness. You’ll need 3+ players for this and will compete to build both funny and absolutely terrible comics. 

With 360 panel cards, and 10 where you can add your own words, there are millions of different combinations that can be created. 

If your family is one with dark humour then they may find this game absolutely hilarious. If they’re easily shocked then you may want to save this for nights with your friends. 

Spin Party Board Game

Giving the wrong answer can STILL make you a winner in *SpinParty. This is a fantastic trivia game that is played in rounds, with individual players or teammates taking turns as the SpinMaster reads out questions and a unique rotating game board. Anyone can bluff in this game and still end up as the winner! 

Secret Identity board game

*Secret Identity, the game, is designed for 3-8 players, ages 10+, and is a great fun mystery game. Each person is trying to guess the character card that everyone has ben assigned, including their own, and after four rounds the player with the most points is the winner. 

This is a great fun game, that is relatively quick, easy to understand and perfect for family game nights over the festive season.

Drags 2 Riches board game

Fans of Ru Paul’s Drag Race will love this Drags 2 Riches game. This is a deck building card game that you can play with 2-5 players and it takes around 30-45 minutes making it ideal for enjoying with family or friends over the Christmas period.
