The Christmas Edit | Lifestyle

We're kicking off our festive gift guide with a rather cosy category - lifestyle. Instead of categorising for people (Mum, Brother, grandparents etc) we've decide to show you an edit of our favourite offerings and from our favourite brands. Any of these lovely things could well be wonderful gifts for anyone special in your life regardless of how old they are, because let's face it - we're all into different things aren't we? Let's get cracking. Cracker-ing. Ooh-er.
blogger christmas gift guide

boden velvet slippers
First up the gorgeous Boden slippers - I (Felicity) chose the Coral Reef & Ivory colour, and Lauren went for the Shingle & Old Pink. Aren't they beautiful? They're super cosy and lined in soft faux fur, keeping your tootsies oh-so-warm this Winter. A perfect present for anyone you know who loves to curl up - they really cheer you up! Quick tip - if you're between sizes, go for a size up as due to the lining they're fairly snug!
cath kidston penguin PJ pyjamas
Next, the Cath Kidston pyjamas. We fell head-over-flippers for these fancy PJs at the Cath Kidston AW15 Press Day - both of us have a bit of a thing for penguins, so these were the perfect pick for our Christmas edit. Lauren is a classy bird and preferred the longer set, but I loved the shorter for being so versatile (you can totally wear that tee for day, right?). In brushed soft blush pink cotton, pick 'em up quick!
aromaworks bath bombs
AromaWorks is a new brand for me (not Lauren, she's been a convert for years) and I love the scents! This is a real 'bring the spa to you' brand, so if sparkle bath bombs from Lush aren't really your thing and you want something that smells divine, head to AromaWorks. The Serenity bath bombs are the perfect mid-week relaxer, so we say give 'em to the biggest stress-head in your life! The men's indulgence set (below) is brilliant value, containing a candle, aftershave lotion, calming body wash and flannel. I'll be giving it to my bath-loving brother, and I have a feeling his girlfriend will be nicking the candle ;) Two happy bunnies!
aromaworks mens indulgence set
Speaking of candles, here's one for the girls - the Rodial Mary Katrantzou candle. It smells absolutely bloody gorgeous, as you might well expect from the beauty experts, and the oh-so-pretty exterior is definitely worth pride of place in your bedroom. Save this one for your best girlfriends - it's a real treat.

  1. Oh, those penguin pyjamas have shot straight to the top of my wishlist! Couldn't possibly be cuter!

    1. They're gorgeous aren't they! Long or short?

  2. So I totally ordered a pair of those Boden slippers for myself and my sister because of this post. They are adorable and exactly what I was looking for. Love the pj's too!

    1. Aw amazing so glad you liked them! What colours did you go for!? I was torn between the navy blue and the pink and went for the pink in the end... Is it crazy to have two pairs...? ;)

    2. I got the mint pair for myself and the navy/black for my sister. No it's definitely not crazy to have two pairs! I might just end up getting another pair for myself before it's all said and done, haha!
