It’s 7am and I have a spare moment ladies, so is it too soon to talk about Christmas?! Nah!
I don’t know about everyone else but there isn’t anything overwhelming I want…there never really is, so it’s hard thinking of bits and pieces sometimes for people (apparently I am ‘impossible’ to buy for as I tend to just get what I want!). Having said that I have been perusing the net and come up with some random things that I wouldn’t say no to (or rewrap and give away…not that I do that…honest):
1. A ceramic knife
My collection of knives suck, you know when you squish a tomato down instead of cutting it? I’ve wanted to try a ceramic knife forever – Lakeland have an affordable collection (they’re shop is a killer at Christmas, so many nice things). This Chef’s knife (£27.99) fits the bill although it doesn’t look very – er – ceramic:
2. A Kindle
As if I don’t have enough gadgets and devices – I’ve never seen the appeal of a Kindle as I like the feel of paper but the book collection is getting ridiculous and I don’t have the room! A Paperwhite 3G looks good and perhaps I can get in more reading whilst Baby H is napping this way. I considered a Kindle Fire but let’s face it – that ain’t made for reading:
3. Alex Monroe Necklace
I still don’t own any Alex Monroe although I think the designs are really cute – I don’t like OTT jewellery for day to day but I do like quirky. I love the baby bumblebee and mini rose gold shrimp in particular. Price at The Pod seem reasonable for Alex Monroe.
4. Jo Malone – Roasted Chestnut Candle
This is such an amazing candle – it smells like roasting chestnuts, you can almost see the fire. It’s also £80 – gulp.
I wonder if Yankee candles do a Chestnut scent because £80 for a candle makes me want to cry a little. Or I could just burn some chestnuts in the kitchen I guess. Still – this candle really is amazing – if you’re feeling more saucy than me, you can get it from the Jo Malone site.
5. Marks & Spencers Broken Butter Toffee…
Is the most amazing thing ever – i can just eat bags and bags of it and that is what I intend to do over Christmas!
