Christmas is less than four weeks away so if you haven’t already got your Christmas gifts ready then here are a few ideas. I am obsessed with scented candles so when I discovered Diptyque’s Christmas edition candles I was so excited to try them out. I couldn’t bring myself to open the packaging, it was so beautiful! I tried out the Epices Et Delices candle which is a unique recipe of delicious spices. It smells of warm gingerbread and honey and feels festive before you even burn it. Perfect for a cosy night in! Diptyque have done three Limited Edition candles this year, this one is definitely my favourite. If you don’t know Diptyque, it was originally founded by three friends who set up their first store along the famous Boulevard Saint Germain in Paris in 1961. They launched fragrance first and soon followed with soaps, colognes, body products and room fragrances.
The only time of the year it seems acceptable to indulge and overload on chocolate is during Christmas. Hotel Chocolat is the ultimate Christmas gifting company and this year they have a huge range of Christmas chocolates from alternative mince pies to chocolate reindeers, they have something for everyone. I recently attended Hotel Chocolate’s new store opening in Manchester, which can be read here. These Christmas crackers are super cute and a great addition to your Christmas dinner decorations. Priced at £5 each, not the cheapest of crackers but they are premium quality packaging and they include a party hat, a joke and three deluxe chocolates, one milk, one white and one dark each individually wrapped. You can buy them here. Another great Christmas gift or one for secret santa is the Toasty Toddies which are made with rum, dark cherry brandy, blood orange and port! Such a great treat and so delicious! Priced at £10 and available to buy here
