My Christmas Wishlist 2018 / Gift Ideas

Hi!! Today I've got a super exciting (and festive) post for you all.... my Christmas Wishlist 2018. I'm struggling a little with gifts for family this year and I find reading people's wishlists always help, so I thought I'd post my one:). Also, as a teen most of my items are for older kids, but if you have younger children or siblings, I just wanted to share www.latestdeals.co.uk and their toys page with you. I won't be asking for toys this year (well... maybe a couple - I'm a kid at heart!!), but if you are buying for kids this year check out Latest Deals because they sell loads of toys at really cheap prices (I think I'll be getting my brother the Nerf gun on there.. shh!!). Also, I just wanted to say I know the festive season isn't about presents, and I'm not expecting all or any of these items, they're just things I'd like:) Anywayyy, now all that's been said let's get into my Christmas Wishlist 2018...

- GlossyBox 3 Month Subscription

I came across Glossy Box recently and I'm already in love with the whole concept and brand. It's a monthly beauty subscription box which send 5 surprise products every month worth over £50 for just under £10 per box!! It's a great way for me to explore new brands and try out products I wouldn't necessarily buy. I'd love to get a 3 month subscription for this:) https://www.glossybox.co.uk/

- Aleena Forget Me Not Top from Brandy Melville

As 'basic' as it is, Brandy Melville is, and has been for a long time, one of my fav clothing brands and so when I was thinking about my wishlist, I just knew it would have some Brandy Melville clothes on. This Forget Me Not tee is super cute and I just think it would look so nice with some skinny jeans and ankle boots. https://www.brandymelville.co.uk/aleena-forget-me-not-top-1093-002-521.html

- Links Of London charms

When I was 1, my mum bought me a charm bracelet for when I was older and now I really want to start wearing it, and I'd love another charm for it. There are multiple I love, but a specific one I think is really cute is this (https://www.linksoflondon.com/gb-en/sterling-silver-polar-bear-charm/5030-2611.html?cgid=charms-christmas-charms#start=7) polar bear charm!

- Nars Sheer Glow foundation

I'm really picky when it comes to foundation - it needs to be light coverage but not too light, radiant but not overally dewy and the right shade for me (which is hard since I'm so very pale!!) however this foundation by Nars seems like it will tick all 3 boxes for me and I'd love to receive this. https://www.narscosmetics.co.uk/en/sheer-glow-foundation/999NACSGLWF01.html

- Anything from Kikki K

I came across Kikki K, a stunning, Swedish stationary (#sibilance #englishlanguage) brand a couple years ago and have been in love ever since. All of the Kikki K designs are beautiful, so there's not one specific thing I want from there... I'd appreciate anything! https://www.kikki-k.com/uk/home

- Scratch map

I've wanted a scratch map for ages now - they look so cool and I think it would be a really fun way to mark off everywhere I've travelled. If you don't know what they are, scratch maps are basically maps of the world and you scratch off the countries that you've been to and it changes colour. These are fairly inexpensive gifts, so they make great Secret Santas or small stocking fillers. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Maps-International-Scratch-World%C2%AE-Travel/dp/1912203944/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1542823985&sr=8-9&keywords=scratch+map

- Teen Breathe magazine subscription

These days there are so many 'trashy, celeb gossip mags' out there for teenagers, that I really couldn't find a genuine, wholesome magazine aimed out our age group. And then I found Teen Breathe:) This magazine is all about self-love and mindfulness and I would really like a subscription. This would make such a lovely gift for somebody as well!! https://www.isubscribe.co.uk/Teen-Breathe-Magazine-Subscription.cfm

SO... those are the main things on my Christmas wishlist this year. Obviously I'm not expecting to get any of these things, and I'm very grateful that I do get pressies most years. I'm aware that Christmas is not about the presents, however I love reading these kind of posts so I thought I'd share my wishlist. If you're stuck for present ideas, hopefully this gave you some inspo (and you can check out this post here for affordable gift ideas for teens). And if it's someone younger that you're buying for this year, make sure to check out Latest Deals for their discounts on so many toys and games.

What's on YOUR Christmas wishlist this year (if you celebrate it)? Do you have any of the things on my list? Let me know in the comments below!!

  1. For me probably just perfume, a calender and diary - I have most things I need :)

  2. Love your wish list! I got a scratch map last year, they are very heavy and don't stay on a wall with bluets which is annoying, but apart from that they are great :D
