John Lewis Christmas Gifting.
With December upon us, I’m all about nailing the Chrimbo lists, as one of my favourite parts of this whole crazy season is the actual gifting. So when the lovely team at John Lewis asked me to take part in a gifting swap to pick a gift from their Festive season offerings for fellow blogger Becky from English Mum, I was right on board quicker than Santa can slide down your chimney.
I’ve been following Becky @englishmum on Instagram for a while and like me, she loves her travel, food and family, but with such a hectic schedule I wondered how often she gets any time to herself. We have kids around the same age, and as a fellow busy mum, I figured a lovely gift for her would be the Elemis Life Elixirs Essential Collection Skincare Gift Set, the perfect pampering treat for the frenetic festive season ahead. I chose this gift for Becky because, like any of us busy mums, she probably puts everyone else first and is pretty time poor. So it got me to thinking, how many of us are completely hopeless at allowing ourselves a little luxury? So any chance to have even the tiniest indulgent moment is one not to be missed.
The thing I loved about the Elemis collection is that it’s like a complete home spa treat and something that oozes ‘me-time’. There’s a sleep bath and shower elixir, a couple of perfume oils to calm and clarify as well as a super luxe candle to light whilst you’re enjoying your me-time. All you need to add is a fluffy bathrobe, a good book and a glass of bubbly and you will have the perfect winters night in sorted.
On the flip side, when I received my gift from Becky I was thrilled to find a gorgeous Cire Trudon Lumiere Christmas Candle and the cutest set of twinkly lights. Now Becky has clearly got me pegged, as my Christmas prep always begins with decorating the home and creating the right ambience. The Cire Trudon candle has the most luxurious festive fragrance which fills the house with just the right Christmassy feel. Whilst twinkly lights are one of my all-year-round obsessions, she couldn’t have picked a better gift.
So if you’re looking for a little John Lewis Christmas gifting inspo – head over to their online Christmas section which is chock full of great ideas. Huge thanks to John Lewis for including me in their lovely gifting initiative, and also to Becky from English Mum for setting me up for the festive season on just the right note.
