LAST MINUTE CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE 2018
Alas, I’ve done it!! For the very first time in my life I’ve managed to buy ALL (!!!) Christmas presents a week before Christmas. If DHL now doesn’t screw it all up, I’ll have them wrapped and prepped under the tree before Christmas day. I hereby officially consider myself a (careful, pat on the shoulder) junior (senior = have all prezzies ready 2 weeks before doomsday) master Christmas shopper and decided to put up a small last-minute Christmas guide in case there’s still someone out there in need of a little inspiration. Since I’m a student myself I’ve decided to keep it mostly budget-friendly and as realistic as possible. I’ve also included stuff from shops that are available outside Germany, so that my non-German readers have a chance of getting their hands on some of the last-minute stuff listed below! DISCLAIMER: most shops give you the possibility to order until the 20th / 21st so that the presents arrive in time for Christmas :)
Let’s get started!
FOR HER - all the lovely ladies and girl bosses in your life!!
Scrub, scrub, scrub your bod’…. with some of these amazing Peelings!
Make-up favourites - for those who love to throw some colour on every once in a while! (If you’re wondering why there’s so much ASOS: they’re accessible in almost every country and they have some amazing offers going on!)
Scents of the century - maybe not as budget as the above-mentioned, but you can never go wrong with a good ol’ Perfume! And some of them are on SALE, whoop!
ACCESSORIES AND JEWELLRY
It’s the small things in life that have the biggest impact sometimes! Here I put together some of the little lovelies I wouldn’t mind finding under the Christmas tree ;)
Alright, first part of the last-minute Christmas gift guide done!! Now to the second part: gifts suitable for EVERY beloved person in your life. I just thought, since I mainly focus on women’s fashion / style I’d give them a seperate section, but now that that’s done and written down, let’s get to the UNISEX part of the gift guide. I for one loooove browsing the men’s sections of online shops for wallets, weekend bags and cool gadgets!
THE GOURMET / CHEF / KITCHEN HERO/-INE
For those who consider their kitchen “the place to be”, the following products are definitely a lovely surprise to unpack on the 24th / 25th !!
COMFY COZY - GET CUDDLY
(NOT JUST AT CHRISTMAS, BUT ALL YEAR ROUND!)
And for all those who do not like gifting, the nicest self-made gift is still a nice picture frame with a picture of yourself and the person you’re giving it to. Or ask them to give you a photograph of their last dream-holiday and have it printed on a huge canvas! I did that for my boyfriend’s birthday this year and he was beyond happy! But in the end, remember that the best gifts are those chosen with love and given from the heart.
Best of wishes, a wonderful Christmas time to y’all and talk to you soon,
