Celebrating the Little Joys this Christmas with Boots

**Advertisement Feature in collaboration with Boots**

Christmas is absolutely my favourite time of year! There is just something about the festive season that seems to feel different from the others. Maybe it's because we start preparing for Christmas in November with Christmas markets and Christmas music always within hearing distance wherever you go? Whatever it is about Christmas that seems to bring people together, that sees people being kinder, happier, and more willing to help others, that's what I love about the season. And what better way to get into the Christmas spirit than to talk about Christmas gifts! 

This year I have teamed up with Boots to showcase their amazing range of Christmas gifts for the whole family. From babies to grandparents and everyone in between, Boots is more than just a chemist or a make-up counter, it's a one-stop shop for all your Christmas gifting needs, including a range of advent calendars to let the countdown begin. Plus let's not forget, they have some cracking offers to save you money too such as their 3-for-2 offer on hundreds of gifts every year where the cheapest item is free. 

I know times have been (and still are) tough for us all this year and that may impact our gifting abilities, but for me personally, I love giving gifts to our loved ones and friends and seeing their smiles when receiving them. Which is why I love Boots so much because their gifting range is so reasonably priced and let's face it, it's not about how much you spend, it's about the thought that goes into choosing it. Which is why I wanted to show you just how far your money can really spread when Christmas shopping with Boots. 

Below I am sharing a range of gift suggestions from mum, dad, friends and even the kids and EVERYTHING you see in the photo above costs less than £75 in total! 

Gifts for Her

When it comes to buying gifts for your partner, mum or even nan you really can't go wrong with relaxation! This Vibrating Neck Wrap comes complete with a super soft eye mask that is scented with lavender and sea salt for a perfectly calming scent. The neck wrap itself is weighted just enough to provide comforting and calming pressure whilst the vibrations help encourage muscle relaxation. At just £15, the gift of relaxation is perfectly affordable and a great way to treat a loved one. With the 3 for 2 offer, there are so many Christmas gifts for her that you can discover and choose from. 

Do you know someone who loves to craft or perhaps loves finding new hobbies to try their hand at? Well, if so this beautiful little Small Hoop Cross-Stitch kit from Cotton Clara is a great gift idea. It includes everything you need to create your very own dachshund cross-stitch, complete with a 9cm bamboo hoop to display it afterwards. It is well proven that hobbies like this are great for relaxation and at just £10 per kit you could give the gift of a newfound hobby this Christmas, as well as a beautiful cross-stitch the recipient, can display afterwards! 

Gifts for Him 

Men can be notoriously hard to buy for especially as they often tell you all they need is pants and socks! But Boots have a great range of Christmas gifts for him that are perfect for the men in your life including complete grooming kits like this L'Oreal Men Expert - Expert Defence set. The set contains everything a man needs for a full face and body routine and is specifically designed with sensitive skin in mind too. The range contains the new magnesium defence range which is enriched with Magnesium minerals and Hyaluronic acid with 0% alcohol. The whole 4-step gift set costs just £18.50 and contains everything a man could need for day-to-day care. 

Who doesn't want to smell nice? Christmas is a great time to find new scents for the person you love, and this Ted Baker Vintage Amber Trio is always a winner at a super affordable price too. The set contains a 150ml vintage amber body spray, a 250ml vintage amber hair and body wash and a 150ml vintage amber antiperspirant deodorant. The sophisticated scent is so versatile and suits everyone from teenagers to grandparents and is perfect for everyday wear or for a special occasion. 

Gifts for the Kids 

When it comes to buying gifts for the kids you may not have initially thought of Boots, but if you haven't checked them out by now you are missing out. I found some great gift ideas and stocking fillers that I hadn't seen in other shops such as this super fun Tabletop Air Football game! The game allows you to use any smooth surface (such as a table or even wooden flooring) as a playing area. It contains a puck that glides on a bed of air, two cushions' strikers and two goals which can be attached to any smooth surface using suction cups. For under £10 this is a great game that can be used at home or on the go and is sure to keep kids happy for hours of competitive fun. 

Crafts are usually a winner when it comes to gifts, they are not only fun but keep kids entertained for hours tool. Boots has so many great craft kits for both adults and children but one that caught my eye for kids by its sheer cuteness was this Rainbow Buddies Dough Modelling Kit. The kit includes 8 doughs, modelling tools, pop-out paper decorations and easy-to-follow instructions to make cute characters like the ones below. For just £7 this kit is a great deal and perfect for gifting to friends or as a fun stocking filler! 

Got a gaming fan who already has everything for their console? Well, this chunky stainless steel official XBOX Controller Keyring makes a fun stocking filler gift and for a keyring size is incredibly detailed to replicate the actual XBOX controller. 

Gifts for your Friends

Christmas is the perfect time to show our friends just how much they mean to us or how much they have helped us through the year and don't worry, Boots have you covered here too! I really like the idea of gifting a beautiful gift set containing a few different products and this Harry Potter "Time for Magic" Bath Collection set totally caught my eye (even the packaging is amazing!). The set contains everything the recipient could need for a Harry Potter-themed relaxing evening including - 


HARRY POTTER™ Shimmering Bath Elixir 500 ml, 

HARRY POTTER™ Golden Facial Sheet Mask 20 g, 

HARRY POTTER™ Golden Whipped Body Butter 200 ml, 

HARRY POTTER™ HEDWIG™ Hand Cream 50 ml, 



As you can see, Boots really do have you covered when it comes to Christmas this year, from young to old, fun to practical, they have it all and at affordable prices too. Many of the gifts above were under £20 AND included in the Boots 3 for 2 offers, making them even cheaper again. So, whether it’s a little treat for the family, a Secret Santa gift at work or maybe you are just looking to pamper yourself this Christmas, head over to Boots and check out their great range of gifts and remember to enjoy the "Little Joys" this Christmas, without breaking the bank.
