Christmas Gifts: Ideas For All Different Members of the Family

With Christmas being a matter of weeks away, a lot of us will be thinking about gift ideas for family and friends. I found that it used to get annoying seeing so many Christmas things in stores, during the months of September and October. Over time, though, I have come to understand why they are sold so early on. It helps us to get organised and make sure that we aren’t just leaving it all until the first few weeks in December. So if you are looking around for some gift ideas, I have a few different ideas for you. Hopefully, you’ll find something to motivate and inspire you with Christmas shopping this year.


For the Beauty Lover

If you have a friend that is a big fan of beauty and skin care products, then it can be tricky to know what to buy. Only tricky because there is so much out there on the market; how do you know what is best to get? I think some natural skin care products are always a good route to go down. The chances are they won’t contain anything that would irritate skin. They are full of natural scents too. Other than that, I think things like eyeshadow palettes or bath bombs are always good ideas for those friends that love beauty products.

For Bookworms

If you have a family member or friend that loves to read, there are plenty of options out there. You could choose a book for them that you think they would love. But if you’re concerned that they might have already read it, then you could go down the gift voucher route instead. Other great ideas are book lamps, e-readers or stylish bookends.


For Adrenaline Junkies

I think we all know a few people that love to live life on the edge. They like to try out new things and experiences. So a run of the mill gift can be a little dull for them. Arranging an experience or event for them is a great idea if you are buying for them. It could be something like a track day, to race in a sports car. It could be bungee jumping, skydiving or hopping in a hot air balloon. Having something like this booked is also something for them to look forward to.

For Keen Bakers

You might have someone in your life that loves to bake. If they are quite experienced, it can feel daunting to give them something like home baked goods. There are plenty of options for them, though. Getting them a new, well-recommended cookbook, can always be a winner. You could also get them some new baking gadgets or accessories. Think of things like rolling pins, silicone bakeware or a new apron. There are plenty of baking accessories out there that you are bound to find something that works. Even a cook's blowtorch or a candy thermometer would be a thoughtful gift for someone that loves to bake.

Hope you found this small guide helpful. Have fun planning your Christmas shopping and getting everything sorted!

DIY Table Revamp - Guest Post

Hi all! I'm Tiffany from This Motherhood is Brought to You by Xanax and I am so excited to be a part of the Guest Post Swap and to be Amanda's swap partner! I love love love her idea on how to make indoor snowballs with egg cartons. I am definitely going to have to try that with my kiddos since my smallest one has decided that it has to snow for Christmas. Poor baby doesn't know snow is hard to come by in Alabama :( For my guest post I wanted to share a little DIY with you guys that involves duct tape! A few months ago my daughter's little chair that goes with her table she sits at every day tore and she made it worse by pulling all of the stuffing out of the seat! What started out as a quick fix turned into a great idea. She loved her seat so much that she has now decided that her table has look cool too so being the smarty pants that she is, she tore her table!


While shifting to your dream house, you may face a mountain of pre-move work, including downsizing, packing, hiring moving trucks, and other help. When you already have a list full of tasks, home improvements for the new house might be the last thing. However, handling the new house renovation before moving in is convenient for you in many ways. Planning home improvement is exciting and stressful both. If you are moving to a house that is not entirely ready, you have massive things to do. To make things smooth, create a list based on priorities. If you are shifting to a freshly build house, you do not need to make a lot of renovation, though you can add a little personal touch to it. When you make house changes before moving in, you can save your floor and furniture from paint spills. You will have an open space to plan the house interior. You can protect yourself and your family from hazardous odors and dust. There are several home improvements like removing popcorn ceil
