Christmas Gift Guide with Flamingo Gifts

Hey beaut's!

I'm absolutely loving all the Christmas gift guides going around at the moment, it's making me feel so festive and of course helping me with prezzie idea's, and today I have a few cheeky things from an amazing website that will help you out soooo much at this time of year, that website being Flamingo Gifts. Flamingo Gifts stock a varied and unique range of gifts to suit everyone and all occasions. From kitsch to traditional, from adults to children, they have everything your heart desires, so much so you’ll find it easy to treat yourself too he he. They also cater for any budget too which I think is great.

Anywhoo, onto the gift guide....

Flamingo Candle in 'Oriental Lotus & Rose Otto'* £11.00

Candles are an absolute winner for the ladies at Christmas and this 'Oriental Lotus & Rose Otto' scent by Flamingo Candle I really do rate. The Oriental Lotus & Rose Otto candle has a floral fragrance with powdery soft top notes of rose otto and warming nuances of sweet magnolia with elements of soft lily and carnation are also present, all in all it smells incredible he he. The quality of the Flamingo Candles is just amazing, they are all handmade & poured in the UK, Eco-friendly and totally organic. They are made using soybean oil which also makes them fair trade and pesticide free. They contain natural cotton wicks which makes for cleaner, longer burning are non toxic and will burn for up to 50 hours which is just incredible. I also really favour the cute, glass flamingo jars that Flamingo Candles use for their candles as they can be cleaned and reused for storing cotton pads, cotton buds or makeup brushes.

A makeup bag is a lovely gift maybe for the younger girls getting into makeup or for any beauty lover in general, and personally I think this 50's Vintage Kellogg's makeup bag is super nice. The style, colour and size of the makeup bag itself is great, it features a retro style woman carrying her trusted variety pack of Kellogg's cereals all in the 50’s packaging, it's a baby pink shade with a nice blue trim which I think finishes off this vintage make up bag perfectly. It's very simple inside and is very easy to wipe clean if you have any makeup marks or spillages.

Retro Kellogg's Frosted Flakes Lip Balm* £2.99

How amazing is this lip balm, it would make such an amazing Stocking Filler present... The lip balm itself  looks amazing and sports that vintage 70's look complete with Tony the tiger himself on the front he he. The scent and taste of the Frosted Flakes lip balm is incredible, it does indeed smell just like the cereal, sugary, sweet with a hint of vanilla in there too. It's certainly a joy to pop on yours lips throughout the day and you can even smell it after you've applied it, it's greeaaatttt! (Sorry I just couldn't resist that he he). The quality of the lip balm is really very good, sometimes you can find that the idea of a product that looks amazing in the packaging can out way the actual quality of the product itself but this lip balm certainly works well. It moisturises and nourishes my lips leaving them silky smooth and it makes a lovely base for lipsticks to go over too.

Ted Baker Tweed Pen* £18.99


I find Men are always quite difficult to buy for at Christmas however I think a nice, good quality, boxed pen is a great gift for someone who maybe works in an office, is into writing or even for Grandads that like the odd cross sword or word search ha ha, and this Ted Baker offering is lovely. The ball point  pen itself is very masculine, it's made up of green faux leather, displays the Ted Baker logo around the middle of the pen, has an easy to use twist up function at the bottom and writes in black ink, it's also very well made and very expensive feeling as its rather weighty and feels great in quality.  The pen is then housed in a lovely tweed effect gift box which add's a nice touch and keeps the pen safe if he wants to keep the pen for special occasions.

Cream Microwavable Hooty Owl* £9.99
For children or adults is this adorable microwavable hooty owl, I think the cute little owl is nice to give to someone who really loves their snugly duvet days or if your anything like me, I like to pop him in the bed to make the inside of my bed nice and warm before I get in it ha ha. All you have to do to make him nice and toastie is simply pop him in the microwave for two minutes, its that easy, afterwards he'll be nice and warm and smelling of delicious French Lavender. The Hooty Owl's are actually available in a variety of different colours so whether your buying for a boy or a girl every ones a winner.

Have you nearly finished your Christmas shopping beaut's?? I'd love to know!
