Christmas Shopping with Boots

It may only be November but with Halloween done and dusted, I can now focus on the main event – Christmas! I know some people have been super organised and have already bought and wrapped all their Christmas gifts but for me, I like to spread the cost out as much as I can in the run-up to the big day.

Aside from the boys, we tend to buy for our immediate family who we usually spend Christmas day with and I love scouring the Christmas Gifts section in Boots. From stocking fillers and toys to beauty sets and gift experiences, they have a wide range of gifts available for everyone and not only that, many of these gifts are available on their 3 for 2 deal meaning you pay for two gifts and get the third free!

I was recently asked to take part in the 50 Days of Christmas campaign and to select some gifts for my loved ones. I decided to pick something out for my mother-in-law and my sister from the Christmas gifts for her section as well as a gift each for the boys.

Here were my choices:

Boots Christmas: Yankee Candle gift set and Rive Gauche perfume

Yves Saint Laurent’s Rive Gauche is one of my mother-in-laws favourite perfumes so I know this will be something she will love. I also chose the Yankee Candle 6 Votive Gift Set to fill her home with the scents of Christmas. It comes with 6 festive fragrances including Festive Cocktail, Snow in Love, Spiced Orange, Snowflake Cookie, Angels Wings and Christmas Cookie. I’m a big fan of Yankee Candles myself so I hope she will enjoy them as much as I do.

The next gift I chose was for my sister. We’re really close and she is always on hand to help me out with looking after the boys so I wanted to find something that would show her just how much she is appreciated.

Boots Christmas: Soap & Glory All Spa Cast gift set

I selected this Soap and Glory All-Spa Cast Gift Set which comes with bath bombs, a body butter, shower gel and hand cream so she can relax, unwind and have a good old pamper session!

Although I’m pretty sure that computer games will make an appearance on their letters to Santa this year, the boys are still into traditional toys and mad about LEGO. They can literally spend hours building and constructing so I am more than happy to encourage this. With this in mind, I chose these LEGO sets for them. They are especially interested in aeroplanes so I know these sets will be perfect!

Now that I’ve begun my Christmas shopping, I intend to start as I mean to go on. If you are looking for gift inspiration why not head along to Boots. Whether it’s instore or online, there’s a wide range of gifts available that would make the ideal gift for loved ones this Christmas.
