As Christmas approaches, I started thinking about what to get for my friends and family. Chocolates and socks are a necessity but what else can you get to make the people you care about happy? As a result of my search, I put together a shortlist of products that I could consider for my closest family members-my husband, my parents and my sister. I hope you find my suggestions useful and if you decide to buy any of the items listed below then I hope that the person you get them for will appreciate them.
Firstly, I wanted to get something special for my husband. He is going to get a few small presents and as he loves his roast dinners I decided to get him the ‘Christmas Roast Dinner Box’ from Ross & Ross. Ross and Ross is a small, multi award winning fine food company based in the Cotswolds. It specializes in Wedding & Event Catering and Handmade British food gifts.
The owners Ross Bearman and Ross Whitmill share a passion for great British food. They have worked in the fine food industry for over 15 years. Their website offers a range of fine-food gift boxes and last year they expanded the popular Man Box collection to include a cider variety in addition to launching The Homemade Curing Kit. I have previously bought my husband The XL Man Box from their website and he loved it so when I saw this limited edition Christmas Box, it was a no brainer and I bought it for him immediately. Christmas Roast Dinner Box has everything you need to make your Christmas dinner that extra bit amazing and more tasty. The box contains:
– Roast Potato Oil
– Pigs in Blankets Dust
– Roast Turkey Rub
– Brussel Sprouts Dust

What’s more, as we both love traveling I decided to get him the Adventure Map from Firebox. If you like scratch maps then the adventure map offers a new twist and is aimed at explorers who are willing to take risks or to try out new methods, ideas, or experiences.
The Adventure Map features over 280 adventurous bucket list experiences, which can be uncovered as they’re completed. It is a perfect gift and I am sure that my husband will love it. What’s most important though we will be able to experience and share these experiences together-I cannot wait to decide where to go and what to do next!

Secondly, I thought about my parents. I always get them a joint present that they can enjoy together in addition to their favourite perfumes. I recently came across The ‘Happy Linen Company’ that produces beautiful bedding exclusively designed for them. The business was founded at the beginning of 2017 by a team passionate about the unique prints and linens. The company offers a range of exclusive bed sets made from the finest blended cotton, 100% cotton flannels and fantastic children’s curtains. The goal of its owners is to establish an affordable, ‘go-to’ brand for bed linen. I decided to order a beautiful duvet cover & pillow case set with a Nordic inspired festive Scandi print. I love the fact that this set is reversible so my parents will get 2 great designs in one set. All Happy Linen Company’s goods are created using a blend of high quality natural cotton and polyester ensuring a soft, durable, easy care finish. Nobody can ever have too much bedding and my parents love changing theirs regularly so I am sure that they will be happy with it.

Thirdly, I wanted to get something personal for my older sister. I have recently discovered Scrumpies of Mayfair-a British brand that got their name from going to ‘scrump’ apples from an orchard – a very unique British form of mischief. A range of Scrumpies knickers caters for every personality and each of 8 unique styles are named after a different apple. The brand was established by a married couple who retired from their careers as international lawyers to design these stylish knickers. I have instantly fell in love with their designs which only use the highest quality fabrics like British silk, French lace and Czech crystals. Scrumpies of Mayfair are a perfect Christmas gift and they come beautifully packaged in a blue box. Each of the boxes also contains a unique collectable charm which can be worn in many ways. How many charms will you collect?
I decided to get a pair of Northern Lights knickers for my sister as they are very chic and elegant. They look absolutely perfect and I am sure that she will like them.

In addition, she loves to watch box-sets and Netfix with a cup of tea whilst being wrapped up in a warm blanket so got her some traditional English tea, some shortbread biscuits to go with it and a super-soft blanket from Heat Holders. It will not only make a superb Christmas gift, but make the perfect addition to any home. The blanket comes in 16 colours and it is sized at 180cm x 200cm. I decided to get it in Cherry shade. What I like about Heat Holders blankets is that they have adapted their unique thermal technology to produce these luxury premium fleece blankets, which achieve a toasty 1.4 tog rating. In addition Heat Holders blankets are fully machine washable so easy to care for.
