My Christmas Gift Guide 2014

Santa is making his list...and checking it twice, so how is your Christmas list getting on? I normally leave all of my shopping until the last minute but this year I am feeling much better prepared. I have picked up some great bargains over the past few months and have half of my presents sorted with the rest planned and ready to buy on pay day.

I wanted to share a few present idea's with you, some are bargains, some are lovely finds and some are just cool things I would be happy to find under the tree. Click on the images for the website link and you can get shopping!

Up first is this gorgeous throw from QVC. From the Kelly Hoppen range it has a simple paisley print and is so soft. This will feature in our bedroom makeover which will be coming soon to the blog but I think it also makes a really nice gift and is currently reduced to £27.36.

The Christmas range in Asda is fab at the moment, they have this Christmas Pudding sugar bowl and these retro Heinz Egg Cups each for under £10! Perfect Secret Santa Gifts.

For stationery addicts like me Got2Jot is an amazing website full of top brands and unique finds. I love this set of notecards by Green Gables. A set of 12 cards and envelopes each with hand lettered words on like Super, Peachy and Hooray. £7.50 

I am also offering one very lucky reader a chance to win a set of these great notecards, just check out the details at the bottom of this post!

For those kitchen heroes among you or even the kitchen novice I have a great gadget that we have been trying out. The Ninja Storm Food Blender is a food processor and drinks maker. It is so easy to use and you can chop, blend or mix food in it including ice! I have had several blenders in the past and they all struggle with ice but this one whizzes it up in no time. 

It has a fantastic design with a lid that fits directly on the bowl to store food/drinks and keep them fresh. It has a pourer for drinks and the big silver button on the top is the only control you need. Just press in short bursts to chop or hold the button down for continuous blending. 

I really like the design of this although appreciate the colours (red, blue, black or green) aren't everyone's cup of tea. It is small enough to pop in a cupboard and does look quite funky sitting on the worktop too. I will share a few more pictures of this in action on the blog soon. This is also on offer on the QVC website for just £26.52.

Finally I picked up this Peppa Pig Theme Park Ride Set for Ted and my Goddaughter Bella for their birthdays from Tesco for just £5! 

It was a total bargain hence why I got two. I am not sure they have any left in store but the Tesco toys clearance is on at the moment so you may find some more bargains there!

Hope you have enjoyed seeing what I am loving this Christmas, I would love to hear what presents you have got already!
