Christmas Gift Shopping at Boots for all the family
Picking the perfect Gift at Boots
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know Boots is always my first go-to place when shopping for Christmas gifts as they have something for all the family, so it saves me shopping all over the high-street when I can get most items all in one place. Last Christmas when I had a shopping spree at Boots, I visited the large store at The Fort, Birmingham and was able to pick up some great gifts as well as a few treats for myself.
This year I’ve taken part in the Boots 50 Days of Christmas campaign and got my hands on some fantastic Christmas gifts for her and Christmas gifts for him plus gifts for kids within the 3 for 2 gifts section. With a budget of just £100, I was able to find nine perfect presents for all my closest family with £4 to spare. Take a look at what I picked up…
Gifts for her
Every year without fail I’ll buy my Mom something from the No7 range, she just loves the brand and has been a long-time fan of the No7 Protect & Perfect Serum, so that’s usually what I buy her but as she’s stocked up this year I decided to pick out some glamourous makeup, perfect for when she’s going out over the festive season (which means she can now stop ‘borrowing/not-giving back’ my makeup) so its win-win 😊.
This No7 Glamourous Nude Eye Palette was just £14 and contains eight beautiful nude shades to highlight, enhance and define eyes and comes with a handy double-ended applicator and compact mirror. The No7 Gel Finish Nail Colour Collection, also at £14, comes with five shades that can take your nails from day to night, from a pink mocha, to glittery gold and a red wine. So, there is a shade for all occasions and autumn/winter outfits.
My sister loves a good pamper session to scrub away her fake tan and relax in an overflowing bubble bath. So, I picked out this Sanctuary Spa Scrumptuous Shower Selection for £14, it’s a personal favourite of mine so I know she will love it. It comes with an indulgent trio of captivating body wash, gentle body scrub & lashings of silky body lotion so that she will be feeling super smooth and smelling lovely for NYE!
When it comes to sweet treats I take after my sister, so I’ve chosen the luxurious Green & Black's Tasting Collection . For £12.50 it comes with a variety of 25 dark, milk and white chocolate bars including some unique flavours such as Anglesey Sea Salt, Milk Butterscotch and Dark Burnt Toffee.
My very glamorous and youthful looking Granny (sorry, I mean Nan she hates Granny or Grandma haha!) was the one to introduce my Mom and I to No7 many years ago, so of course, I also had to get some No7 beauty goodies for her too.
At the time of ordering the No7 Restore and Renew Collection was out of stock as it’s so popular and effective. The Restore and Renew Collection are more suited for my Nan’s skin, while the No7 The Perfect Lift is best for my Mom and the No7 Perfect Gift is more suitable for me. So, if you chose to gift this set to a special woman in your life then you’ll easily find the most suitable skincare for them with No7 no matter their age.
Each set contains day cream with SPF15, night cream, eye cream, serum, a hot cloth cleanser and a muslin face cloth for a complete anti-ageing skincare regime to improve the appearance of deep lines & wrinkles for younger looking skin.
My sister and I are big fans of the Instagrammer Dr Hazel Wallace, whenever we make some of her delicious and highly nutritious recipes my Auntie is always asking us how we made it as she has a very healthy diet and lifestyle. Therefore, The Food Medic Book for £10 is perfect for my Auntie as she doesn’t use social media so misses out on Hazel’s cooking and baking inspirations. So, for Christmas, she’ll now have a whole book of new recipes and beautiful photography to get excited about making them in the new year!
Gifts for him
Apart from my Boyfriend, my Dad is the only man I have to buy Christmas gifts for as my family is full of women – who are a lot harder to buy gifts for. Buying for my Dad is super easy as he’ll be chuffed with a box of smellies, some socks and a DVD about cars.
Last year I bought him a Jack Willis set so this year I thought I would switch it up and go for the Lynx Bumper Pack Gift Set for £14. It comes with two full-size body washes, two body sprays and a manwasher sponge from both the Lynx Africa & Lynx Gold range.
Gifts for girls
Finding the perfect gift for little ones at Boots is easy they have such a wide range of toy and gift sets from shows such as My Little Pony, Thomas and Friends, Despicable Me and Paw Patrol etc. But what I was interested in most is the Disney Princess range for my niece, she’s six and absolutely loves anything to do with Disney after watching all the movies and going to both Orlando and Paris last year.
Splashing about in the bath and sticking stickers on everywhere but the paper is her favourite thing to do besides from watching Disney films on repeat, so I can’t wait to see her opening this Disney Princess Bath and Beauty Wash Bag and Disney Princess Puzzle Eraser Advent Calendar . I know she’ll love them and will especially get excited to open the advent calendar each day. The wash bag features her favourite Princesse's, Cinderella, Rapunzel & Ariel! And the set includes bubble bath, shampoo & conditioner, two fizzers, and bath confetti. Her bath time has just got even more fun!
So, there you go, I found nine perfect gifts for my closest family for just £96 in the 3 for 2 section at Boots. Now it’s time to start picking out treats for myself with the Advantage card points!
