Christmas gift guide

Neurotic, stressed and panic buying has been my Christmas shopping tradition for as long as I can remember. This year, I’m taking the Zen approach to Christmas. Making sure Christmas shopping is completed at least a week before Christmas and ensuring that any gifts I buy will be meaningful and useful.

So here are my Christmas gift ideas:

Natural Empathy Natural Candles: £25, www.crystalspring.co.uk


Here’s an excellent gift that will go down well with girlfriends who love to get pampered. I’m a huge fan of Natural Empathy Shea Indulgence: Natural Body Butter and having tried the Wild Fig and Patchouli Natural Candle, it’s difficult not to fall in love with that too. It smells divine, creates a very relaxing ambience and makes an excellent gift.

Elle MacPherson Pedicure System: £29.99, www.homedics.co.uk.


This 8 in 1 pedicure system is brilliant for DIY manicures and pedicures. Very easy to use, comes with a full instruction manual and a two year guarantee.

HoMedics Gel Shiatsu 2in1 Back & Shoulder Massager with Technogel: £249.99, www.homedics.co.uk.


The deep kneading Shiatsu massage relieves the tightest knots while the rolling massage with width adjust – stretches and relaxes muscles. This massager is soothing and the programmable remote control allows for specific spot massage. This will make someone a very happy bunny; it’s like having a masseuse in your house 24/7.

YONKA Beauty Sets: £52 – £80, www.yonkashop.co.uk.

I love these beauty sets from exclusive spa brand, Yonka. You can choose from Yon-Ka’s Absolute Hydration clutch packed with the range’s top three most hydrating and comforting facial products; Yon-Ka’s Absolute Vitality clutch contains the perfect radiance boosting trio and Yon-Ka’s Absolute Softness clutch is packed with Yon-Ka’s most sumptuous body products. Give one of Yonka’s beauty clutches as a Christmas gift and you really will be giving the gift of beautiful skin.
