Birthdays. Birthdays! Don’t you just love ’em?
On a serious note, I really like shopping for gifts for people, milling over what they would like, the paper, aiming to visualise how they’d react. For today’s post, I wanted to show you a few things that I’d like to suggest could be an idea for birthday gifts. Anything marked by an * is a PR sample, but please note, I requested these, meaning that what follows is my genuine opinion.
For a girlfriend/boyfriend.
Some sentimental jewellery is what I would go with-and before anyone says, Jewellery is not just for girls. Jewellery Box* is a brand I’ve collaborated with, and I really love what they have to offer. And I could spend hours browsing their website! And they have sections for everyone, I feel. You can even personalise what you purchase.
As a polite hint:
I love my Filofax-and my organisation would be a mess without it. But I really get bored, and more than just a bit sick and tired, of people asking me to be organised for them on their behalf. If you know anyone like this, may I suggest a Filofax? Just as a polite hint.
For the music fan:
Do I really need to say it? Divide* has already been a huge Album this year-and it looks as if there’s no stopping it. (I love ‘Shape of you’ and ‘Nancy Mulligan’.) Anyway, whether it is on Vinyl or CD, it looks set to be a classic album in years to come.
For a couple setting up their first home:
Maybe a subscription box? Although they aren’t for everyone, it is nice to get Post through the letter box, every once in a while. And it could be something completely unusual! Something like Cheese Posties*, Little Known Box*, etc.
For the student:
Although I had not been impressed with this-I found the set up to be confusing-I think that this would be useful for any student. An Amazon Fire Stick* would seemingly be really useful. Imagine being away from home-and this correlates all your apps in one place! Lovely. You can have Netflix, iPlayer, etc all on the go.
For the fashionable friend:
New Look has some really cool items-and I would go for things like a pair of shoes, even a bag. You don’t have to spend so much!
For the bibliophile:
I love books! But The Summer Of Impossible Things* and How To Stop Time* are coming out soon. Having read both, and thinking highly of these two works of fiction, I highly suggest that they be in your list.
What other category or ideas do you have?
I am pleased to announce that I am working with Basic Beauty Tools. If you go to their website via this link , and order the Spongedry, you can get an extra free foundation blender by adding under ‘Note To Seller’ your colour code: LYDIAPINK for pink, LYDIAPURPLE for purple, and LYDIABLACK for black.
