Choosing the Perfect Christmas Gifts with Boots

*Paid Collaboration*

Boots has always been a favourite shop of mine when it comes to Christmas shopping. I love their extensive ranges of beautiful gifts, and the 3 for 2 Christmas mix and match offer that often runs throughout Christmas time is great for saving a few pennies. As a busy mum of two, online shopping around Christmas time is a life saver for me as there is no way I am dragging two kids around a busy mall at Christmas time!

I was so excited when Boots got in touch asking me to take part in their 50 days of Christmas campaign, giving bloggers like me the opportunity to share with you some of the fabulous gifts Boots has to offer this Christmas. As part of the campaign I got the chance to choose some Christmas gifts for members of the family I buy for, there was so much to choose from it took me quite some time to decide! In the end I decided on these gifts...

I chose for my mum, sister, dad and husband and loved that I could buy for the whole family on one website, get it all delivered from the comfort of my own home and eliminate the stress of Christmas shopping.

Totes Barley Lane Bunny Ballet Slipper - £14.00

I chose these bunny ballet style slippers for my mum, aren't they the cutest!? I wish you could feel just how soft they are both inside and out. I know my mum will love slipping her feet into these when she gets home. Buying slippers for my mum has become a bit of a tradition so I was thrilled to see Boots had a few choices available, I had to choose these though as they are just too cute. The velvet look fabric and fluffy bunny ears finish of these slippers perfectly.

These are available in a small/medium which is a shoe size 3-5 or medium to large which is shoe size 6-8.

No7 The Perfect Lift Set - £30.00

This is another gift I chose for my mum. Like most mums she very rarely treats herself but I know that she loves good skincare. Of course Boots is the place to go for skincare and they have an abundance of different skincare sets available in their Christmas gifts for her range. There is something for every skin type and the beautiful sets make a great gift!

I chose the No7 Perfect Lift set which is a complete anti-ageing skincare regime to target the three key signs of ageing: wrinkles are visibly reduced, skin appears lifted and noticeably firmer and skin tone is more even. The products are all beautifully presented and I know she will really love trying them out.

RED5 UFO Colour Changing Flyer - £13.00

My husband is a big kid at heart and so when I saw this fun flying UFO gadget I knew he would love it! The colour changing flying UFO is perfect for beginners or children who are new to drones and remote control flying. It has funky lights to the ball on the base which make it fun in both the day and night too. The LED lights illuminate the UFO with a fun disco vibe giving it that extra bit of fun over other drones.

The flying UFO is designed for indoor use and fits in the palm of your hand. It has a control distance of around 5-8 metres and charges via a USB cable. It really does look like lots of fun and I know my husband (and probably my son!) will have lots of fun flying this around the living room on Christmas morning.

That's the great thing about the Boots website, it gives you categories within the Christmas gifts for him such as dad, husband, brother and grandad meaning that when you are stuck for gift idea's for those trickier members of the family, Boots will have your back with lots of great ideas.

Threads By Totes Men's Moccasin Slippers - £18.00

Me and my husband usually have an agreement over Christmas that we just get each other something small from the kids, then spend the money on a day trip or something instead that we can all enjoy. However I know how much he loves Christmas and unwrapping gifts with the kids Christmas morning, so I always get him a few small bits to open. When I spotted these Moccasin slippers I instantly noticed how cosy they looked.

My husband works outside all day usually wearing either heavy welly boots or steal toe cap boots, so I know that these will be perfect for him to slip on after a long day at work whilst still keeping his feet warm in the winter. The bottom of these slippers have a tougher rubber feel and so feel like they will last (even with him being so heavy footed!) and the fluffy inside looks so soft.

Jack Daniel's Four Sauces Set - £14.00

My dad is probably the most tricky person to by for but he loves to cook. So when I spotted this Jack Daniel's sauce set over in the Christmas gifts for him section on Boots it went straight into my basket.

I'm not sure why but I hadn't realise that Boots would have such a great range of foodies/cooking gift ideas. There are sauces and herbs as well as complete kits which include spices and even the pan! This set looks great as a gift with all of the sauces presently nicely in a gift box displaying four different sauce flavours to try. The flavours included are 1 x 260g Full Flavour Smokey, 1 x 275g Smokey Sweet, 1 x 260g Smooth Original, 1 x 275g Tennessee Honey. I know my dad will really enjoy trying all of these and it feels great to have a gift for him I know he will love to use!

Beauty & The Beast Chip Cup Fizzer Set - £6.00

My sister may be 26 but she is still a huge Disney fan, so when I spotted this adorable chip cup bath fizzer from Beauty & the Beast I knew it would make a great stocking filler for her. The cup contains a beautiful smelling, shimmery bath fizzer in the top which can be popped into your bath for the ultimate relaxation. The cup is also reusable after you use the bath fizzer and I know my sister will put it to good use somewhere.

I found shopping for Christmas gifts online with Boots super easy and that's down to two things for me, the huge range they have available and how easy they make it. There are categories (Gifts for Her, Gifts for Him and Gifts for Kids) which then have sub categories such as gifts for mum, daughter, granddaughter, grandma and even girlfriend/wife and the same for each main category. It meant I could get lots of great ideas with the person I wanted to buy for in mind.

So now that Halloween is over and the kids are back to school, head on over to Boots and make a start on that Christmas shopping!

Is there anything you have your own eye on from the Boots Christmas range this year, either for you or a loved one?
