MY CHRISTMAS WISH LIST

CHRISTMAS IS COMING!!

Sorry to all you scrouges out there who think it’s too soon, but for me, as soon as October hits my Christmas thinking cap goes on and I become an elf. I know that all the adverts say that the best part of Christmas is giving gifts rather than receiving, but I really do agree! I love shopping for the perfect gift, getting people something they wouldn’t expect and generally raising a smile 🙂

That being said, who doesn’t LOVE receiving gifts too? And there are so many gems out there! I’ve been cultivating my extensive Christmas list for some months now. Firstly because I’m broke and can’t afford nice things and also because I’ve found so many lovely treats while I’ve been hunting for gifts for others.

While you may not care to know what’s on my Christmas list as you’re not shopping for me this year (rude), I thought I would post all my wishes on here. One, for my family to draw inspo, and two, to inspire those of you shopping for friends and sisters who are totally stumped for ideas!

Now, Santa, I would like one of each of the below pretty please!…

THE BEST DAD DESERVES THE BEST GIFT

Every year my sisters and I have the same struggle – trying to find the perfect gift for our wonderful Dad. Each birthday and Christmas his list consists of the same three items – socks, ties, then some sort of gardening utensil or attire. And every year we spend ages thinking what to get and then failing and getting something of the list – or going wild and getting something totally off list and then failing because he’s not a fan. WHY ARE DADS SO HARD TO BUY FOR?!?!

Well this year I’m not going to let Dad get away with another boring old gift – or fuel his unhealthy tie collection. With his birthday last week, I spent some time hunting out something fun to make his day extra special. I thought I would share my findings with you lovely lot as the STRUGGLE IS REAL and Christmas is coming!!

Whether your Dads into gardening, sports, beer, cars or the odd pair of snazzy socks, hopefully there will be something below to give you a little inspo as to what to get your old man this Christmas, whatever your budget!
