I’m so excited to share with you my very first Christmas gift guide of 2016. Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? I’ve already bought Penny a dolls house, a giant unicorn (“It’s so fluffy I’m gonna die!”) and some wooden musical instruments that I’m sure I’ll regret buying in months to come. As for the grown-ups, I’ve been searching Amara’s Christmas gift guide for some inspiration. Amara is an online luxury gift and designer homeware retailer that stocks over 300 brands including Kate Spade, Pip Studio, Laduree, Miss Etolie, Cath Kidston and Ted Baker.
I was very kindly sent a few pieces from their beautiful online collection of gifts and stocking fillers. I chose a selection of very chic gold items to share with you today, including a delicious smelling coconut milk and mango luxury soy candle, kate spade stationery and beautiful ceramic love heart mug – every blogger’s dream, right?
Miss Etolie takes inspiration from the elegance of French, feminine and Art Deco styles. Amara stock over 100 pieces in their collection including adorable teacup & saucers, teapots, cake tins and stands. I actually think this might be too cute to stick my morning coffee in, I’ll probably pop this on my dressing table to display makeup brushes and other knick-knacks.
This luxury soy candle from Illume is available in a variety of scents including Blackberry Absinthe, Amber Dunes and Thai Lily. With notes of pineapple, mango, coconut, vanilla and papaya I can’t emphasise enough how heavenly this fragrance is. The pink and gold packaging is so pretty and elegant and the candle itself has a very generous burning time of over 50 hours. The Illume Coconut Milk & Mango Soy Candle retails for £19 and is available here.
I am a complete stationery addict, it doesn’t matter that I probably have over a hundred half-used notebooks scattered around the house; I always need another. Kate Spade design some beautiful stationery products with clean, minimal but sophisticated designs. I picked up these pretty gold bow paperclips (£10/here) and a spiral notebook (£12/here).
The Amara Christmas Gift Guide is divided into easy to navigate categories including type of person, their interests and budget, so it’s never been simpler to find the perfect gift for a loved one this Christmas.
