Adult colouring books have also taken this year and fans of Doctor Who will find hours of enjoyment and relaxation with this Doctor Who Colouring Book.

For the ladies, a beauty based gift never disappoints and with the strobing trend taking over, the Becca Glow On The Go Set is the perfect gift to help someone achieve that stunning Summer glow with some iconic Becca products. The Sanctuary Spa Youth Boosting Facial in a Box offers a lovely introduction to the skincare range and is perfect for treating the skin as the party season winds down and we enter a new year. For an affordable nail polish set, the Models Prefer MP Gloss Nail Polish Set is perfect as it contains some lovely Summer appropriate shades as well as a nail file. The Nude By Nature Brushed Up Pro 10 Piece Brush Set + Case comes beautifully packaged in a gorgeous tin and contains all the brushes you’d ever need. I own a few of the NBN brushes and they are great quality and really soft.

In terms of male beauty and grooming, there are some great value gift sets this year. L’Oreal Paris have a Team Clean-Shaven Gift Pack containing skincare and shaving products as well as a football which is a gift perfect for all ages. Fragrance is always a winner in my book when it comes to gift giving and if you aren’t sure what type of scent he likes, this Calvin Klein CK Men’s EDT Mini Set is perfect as there is a range of scents for him to try. Beards and Mustaches have really come back over the past few years so if you know a man sporting some facial hair, this Barber Shoppe Beard Grooming Set is perfect for them as it contains all the essentials for upkeep.

If you’re look for an entertaining present, the Adele 25 Album has been hotly anticipated and (in my opinion) has some amazing songs, she never disappoints! With a reboot earlier this year, the Jurassic Park franchise has come back with a bang and there is a fabulous Jurassic Park Collection now available with 4 movies which is perfect to keep everyone entertained during the holiday period. I love the game of Monopoly and this new Monopoly Empire version combines the classic game with well known international brands such as Coca Cola and McDonalds, which you can now own in the board game!

For a home, the Circa Home Red Spiced Pear is my all time favourite Christmas candle scent (so much so, I stock piled a couple a few years ago as it is limited edition and only available at Christmas!). The scent is subtle but fresh and sweet, making it a very pleasant scent for all year round. The MOR Turtle Dove Kaleidoscope Card and Envelope Set contains stunning illustrations which you can use all year round as Christmas Cards, Birthday Cards, etc and it comes beautifully packaged in a tin which makes it great for gifting.
