Birthday gifts solved! Featuring Jewellery Box, Amazon Fire Stick, and more..

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.

Because just how cute is this butterfly ring?!

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.

I love album artwork like this!

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.

    Well given what I blog about I would definitely agree about subscription boxes! But Jewellery Box, I think I was given some earrings by someone from them once, and they were so lovely and delicate. Of course I lost them because I am a loser of things!

    These are such fun ideas! I’ve never thought of getting a subscription box for a friend, but now that you’ve said it, I can’t stop thinking about how perfect an idea it is!

    Wish we had New Look in the States!
