Bring out the child in her with this adult-twist on a traditional mix of presents from Father Christmas. This collection is a well-balanced mix of wellbeing gifts to use up, useful luxuries to keep and sweet treats to eat right there in bed on Christmas morning.
The collection begins with Midnight (Somewhere) Scented Candle by Sunday of London. We have chosen Natasha's candles for this year's collection because they are wonderfully subtly scented - subtle scent being important in winter when our windows are closed and we don't want anything overpowering.
Next, there is a comforting pair of Wool Linen Blend Socks made by premium UK knitwear designer/maker Genevieve Sweeney. By popular demand, these socks are back from the 2017 collection. She will wear them round the house, in her wellies, curled up on the sofa and, of course, in bed. Thankfully they wash well so she can really do all that again and again.
Our something-to-keep is the very elegant SOL Reusable 12oz Cup, made from handblown glass with silicon lid and sleeve. This stylish contribution to a plastic free lifestyle is suitable for hot and cold drinks and the perfect size to present to the barista at her favourite coffee shop.
And for more than just a little indulgence, we have included Nathalie Bond's Home Spa Gift Box. A mini spa experience at home - the scents of rose geranium and lavender help with relaxation, stress relief and improving sleep. Light a candle, run a warm bath with pure Himalayan pink salts and enjoy a tranquil moment. After bathing, she can apply the organic body oil to leave her skin feeling ultra smooth while she slips into bed and drifts off to sleep.
A winter essential, this collection also includes Albus & Flora's Multi-Active Lip Balm (our best seller in 2017) and other practical goodies: Fresh Therapies' Nail Polish in Festive Dark Red and better-for-you Fresh Therapies' Nail Polish Remover. Read about this brand here.
Another winter essential, we have Davines OI Hand Balm.
And, in a traditional style we have little edible goodies to finish off before (or during) breakfast on Christmas morning:
- A pot of Miniature Old Rectory Preserves Mandarin and Lime Blossom Marmalade
- Tadinka Nougat Classic Luxury Nougat cubes
- The Datery's Signature Collection of Chocolate-covered and Nut-filled Luxury Anbar Dates, because nothing says 'Christmas' like some nuts and dates!
