Yes it may be early but Christmas time will soon be upon us and as a muma with a busy parenting/working/non-sleeping schedule I like to plan ahead and get my Christmas planning under way with plenty of time to spare. People say that starting your shopping early takes away the fun around Christmas time but I say it saves you time, stress and money as well as giving you more of the holiday season to spend drinking hot chocolate and watching your children make snow angels … okay drinking mulled wine and watching them fight over the chocolates on the tree; regardless it’s magical!
I’ve teamed up with the wonderful team at ESPA; the ones who really know how to make a gal feel special; to bring you some fab gift guide inspiration. Partners – take note and ladies – get hinting because this is a seriously lustful list from their Gifts of Wonder range to make your Winter so much more relaxing!
Bergamot and Jasmine Hand Lotion and Hand Wash
This may be one you’ll want to save for your ensuite because it’s just too scrumptious to share! Not only does the packaging look stylish but the deep purple of the bottles give that instant spa like relaxing vibe! Oh and of course not to mention the smell … the hand wash and hand lotion are 100% naturally fragranced with zesty bergamot, sensual jasmine and sweet cedarwood to create a rich and luxurious aroma which is also super nurturing for those hard working hands! RRP £28
Whether I’m sat at my desk, watching a movie with Pete or having some chill time with Jasper I love to have a candle lit and this restorative candle creates the perfect level of zen. It’s infused with the purest aromatherapy oils filling the room with a heart-warming blend of sweet orange, palmarosa and lavender to help quiet anxiety and calm any woes. This candle is seriously effective and I get so many complements on how my home ‘smells like a spa’ when it’s lit … but darling it is a spa! RRP £13.00
Winter Pine Candle
I’m a sucker for a festive candle especially one that fills my home with the cosy scent of Winter and this Winter Pine candle does just that! As ESPA’s limited edition festive candle it infuses your home in the warm, sweet and delicately spicy notes of cinnamon, eucalyptus and pine … oh my it is scrumptious! You certainly don’t need any of that pine spray for your Christmas tree with this candle around! RRP – £28
Winter Spice Reed Diffuser
I never got into reed diffusers until this year and I’m now obsessed! They last forever (okay not forever but for a really long time!) kick off the same intensity as candles do and look incredibly stylish in your home. This limited edition Winter Spice scent is the perfect way to cosy up your home on those crisp chilly days with it’s blend of sweet orange, clove and cinnamon. RRP £37
Nourishing Lip Treatment Trio
I’ve posted about these before as I had the nude version some time ago and it is seriously amazing! You know when you go for a facial and they finish it off by applying a little bit of lip balm/gloss? Well that my friends is this! Whether you’re finishing off an at home spa or this is the only thing you’re applying before heading off for the school run; you’ll feel instantly like you’ve just had a full body de-stressing massage when you put on this nourishing lip treatment! On their own they’re fab as stocking fillers and as a set in this festive cracker they make a wonderful gift under the tree! RRP £29.00
Body Shimmer Collection
A fab one for those of you who aren’t quite ready to embrace the pale skin of Winter. This is a limited edition product from ESPA and is perfect for the festive party season! ‘The illuminating duo will bestow skin with beautiful, believable colour finished with a sweep of subtle gold-flecked oil.’ RRP £39.00
Smooth and Firm Body Butter
Winter weather can be really drying for your skin so a rich and hydrating body butter like this is the perfect gift to refine, soften and restore your skins natural suppleness. It contains a wonderful blend of argan oil, rosehip, pumpkin seed extract and Superactive larch which all work together wonderfully to soften, smooth and rejuvenate! It smells of delicious mandarin, patchouli and rose to create an atmosphere of pure zen. RRP £50
