A year full time and city guides a-plenty, my first venture into YouTube and a baby puppy addition- 2014 was an exciting one!


My Christmas Gift Guide 2014

What Olivia Did Christmas Gift Guide

The stocking fillers…

Whether you’re picking these up as a stocking filler, Secret Santa gift which is well in budget or simply as a little ‘Merry Christmas’ gift, these are some of my favourite ‘little-but-lovely’ picks from this year. Okay, some of them aren’t your typical under a tenner pieces, but I’d like to think there’s something for everyone in the mix! Whether you’re a bit of a foodie lover (ahoy amazing pizza cutter), pamper queen (that candle smells like Christmas itself) or beauty hunter (with Hannah’s gorgeous bags being a must have)- there’s some fun variety in the mix, and of course I had to include these Westie salt and pepper shakers too which are SO amazing. I also tried to include some more ‘indie’ brands in the mix too, so hopefully some pieces you wouldn’t have spotted on your high street either!

The bigger treats…

Although some of these are perhaps a little obvious (pyjamas, underwear- anyone?) I truly believe festive cliché gifts are just that for a reason, I mean- I can’t be the only one that bloody LOVES getting cosy socks for Crimbo! Plus, if pyjamas come covered in stars and the undies in a little pink box- you know the recipient is going to be a happy bunny too! Here I’ve also included the worlds most beautiful tea set, a fail safe (and delicious) hamper from my favourite go-to eatery and a cheeky cheesy Christmas Camembert- which will be gone quicker than it gets unwrapped, I’m sure!

The beauty lovin’ babe…

Whether she’s a Youtube watching guru, or just a pal with a keen eye for a good buy (ooh rhymes)- I’d like to think some of these picks cover all bases, whether you’re more of a bubble bath or colour quad loving lady. With some gorgeous bath time luxuries from Aromatherapy Associates and Neom, and the gorgeous new Nutcracker festive collection from Clinique (not to mention a favourite perfume gift box- always fail safe)- there’s things I’d be tempted to even keep for myself… ahem. Also- I am a little bit in love with this Elemis ’12 Days of Christmas’ beauty box too- a little like the beauty advent calendars; this can be unwrapped and used after the big day- so you have a little something to look forward to in the lead up to the New Year too- hooray!
