Christmas Gift Guide - Festive Fragrant Gifts

There is nothing I like better than receiving fragranced gits at Christmas! Whether that be candles, perfume, bubble baths, hand creams etc. I love it. It is also a beautiful gift to give and can be an easier decision to make than you think at first.


Festive Fragrant Gifts


Below are a few really beautiful gifts that I think any women would love to receive this year, whether to spruce up the bathroom for when guests are visiting or to make yourself smell divine. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.


Michael Bublè  By Invitation Fine Fragrance Gift Collection -

Michael Buble By Invitation Gift Collection


Christmas isn't Christmas without Michael Bublè  - or, as my obsessed sister-in-law likes to call him "Michael touch my Bublès" - classy ;-) Playing in the background. Now you can wear him all over! Well, ok, not so much him, but his beautiful fine fragrance. As much as I jest, this incredible perfume really is a beautiful gift. Described as a glamorous "Flori-ental" this easy wearing perfume suits everyone. With top notes of red fruits and bergamot, added heart notes of lily of the valley, wild jasmine and spicy peony, its the warm, sensual notes of sandalwood-musk and Vanilla that do it for me. A really bright, flirty fragrance that dries down to an incredibly sensual scent. This is not your "typical" celebrity fragrance, this is one that you will wear daily and receive compliments on each and every time. This is Classy. The beautiful atomiser shaped glass bottle, has a modern edge and comes in a fab gift set as a incredibly generous 100ml EDP with a beautiful silky 150ml body lotion for £55.00. A gift for someone you love. Lots of neck nuzzling goes on when you wear this so be prepared!


Twiggy Amber Blossom Eau de Toilette 100ml -
Twiggy Amber Blossom EDT
 Celebrating 50 years in the industry, Iconic British supermodel Twiggy has just launched a lovely collection of beauty gifts for Christmas. Body lotions, candles, hand wash and fragrance are just some of the products available in Marks and Spencer. Twiggy has an incredibly successful fashion range in Marks and Spencer and developing a beauty Gift range was the logical next step. Twiggy believes "All women deserve a bit of pampering and I wanted to create beautiful products with wonderful scents that everyone would enjoy using" and she is absolutely correct. I have been lucky enough to try the Amber Blossom EDT and was actually genuinely shocked by how much I enjoy this fragrance. The value on the bottle is incredible at £16 and makes it a beautiful gift. My mum and nan, both of whom are very glamorous would adore this fragrance. It is so pretty in the packaging and the tall, slinky glass bottle with its art deco inspired lid looks incredibly beautiful on the dressing table. The scent is so fresh and contains one of my all time favourite smells from Tuberose. Combine sweet lily, freesia and orange blossom with the aforementioned tuberose and peony and you have an incredibly uplifting citrus which almost immediately relaxes down to a warming, comforting cashmere base. This is a hug, this is for that special someone that means a lot to you, that always leaves a lasting memory, this is a comforting, unique fragrance. I can only imagine how amazing the candle in this scent would smell in the home at Christmas. Available from Marks and Spencer HERE. ( On 3 for 2 at the time of writing).


Grace Cole Boutique Collection Cleansing Hand Care Duo -

Grace Cole Boutique Collection Hand Care Duo
 Grace Cole are an award winning, family run, beauty brand based here in the U.K. They work with leading perfumeries, pharmacies and high end department stores to create a range of incredibly prestigious products. You may recognise them from stores such as Harrods, John Lewis, Debenhams, Boots and Superdrug as they have a collection of products suitable for all occasions. This brand is one that I absolutely adore and I am so looking forward to bringing you so much more from them! This gorgeous Hand Care duo makes the perfect gift for yourself or someone that loves entertaining as it looks incredibly classy and pretty in the bathroom. The Orchid, Amber and Incense Liquid hand wash smells absolutely amazing! It is so pretty and uplifting but also suitable for a man due to the warmth of the Amber. Creates a beautiful lather and does not dry out the hands. Included in this collection is the matching hand cream and this feels so light and cooling on the skin. Beautiful and silky without feeling greasy, it melts into the skin and leaves the hands and nails feeling deeply hydrated and smelling beautiful. At only £12 for this duo, this is a must in my house this year. You can purchase this collection HERE


The English Soap Company -
The English Soap Company
Continuing with the fab-gifts-for-the-bathroom theme, once you have tried a soap from The English Soap Company you will become well and truly addicted. The Christmas packaging this year is so divine that you will not want to open them! Founded 12 years ago by Bob and Juliet after they discovered some vintage soap moulds in a disused machinery workshop in Kent, they have perfected the art of soap making and turned the old bar of dried up soap into a work of art in the most divine packaging. I am obsessed with the Christmas packaging this year, especially the Elf and Winter Village so do check them out. Perfect stocking filler sized, these soaps are 100% triple milled vegetable soaps. The Merry Christmas Luxury Guest Soap

has beautiful bird packaging, inside are three hand wrapped heart shaped soaps that smell of a powdery, snowy, fresh green crisp scent. An incredibly pretty gift to leave on the guest bed if you have visitors this Christmas. Angel Luxury Guest Soap
Angel Luxury Guest Soap
is my absolute favourite! I adore Angels and the packaging is so beautiful. A very comfortable, large, triple milled soap, the scent is incredible. A luxurious perfume combining soft gentle floral notes with an uplifting vanilla undertone. Top notes of passion fruit & mandarin add a fruity finish. Its delightful. These soaps really last such a long time and do not disintegrate into a horrible mess. Please, please go and take a look as you will fall in love like I have. Finally from The English Soap company is a very cute Christmas Candle. Vintage Toys Pure Soy Candle

 an incredibly Christmassy design on the packaging, this beautiful soy candle has a 35 hour burn time and smells like a crisp winters walk through a powdery snow filled forest. It is soft, subtle and delicious. These products really do make incredible gifts or stocking fillers. The English Soap Company has an incredible heritage and puts love and joy into each and every high quality product. At unbelievably reasonable prices such as £2.95 for soap, and with plenty of time left for Christmas delivery do take a look HERE.

  1. Hi Sharon. Thanks for a great blog as usual. Love the BM collection and have also just bought some of the lovely items from The English Soap co.
    It wasn't a brand I was aware of, so thanks for publicising a lovely British brand. They will make for pretty and unusual stocking fillers. Keep up your great work, Anita M.
