Christmas Gift Guide – My Wish List 2018

It’s become an annual tradition sharing my Christmas wish list on Whimsical Wonderland Weddings. I can’t help but do one each year at G’s request, however some of things things are lottery-win style presents. which will firmly stay in the in my dreams category. But still it’s fun to window shop right? Anyway, I always enjoy gift guides on my fave blogs as I love to discover new finds and it saves so much time trawling the net, so here goes with my own wish list.

Now I have been after a new radio in like forever. Mine is seriously ancient and totally not chic, I’ve loved the Roberts Revival Radio ever since I first laid eyes on them and they just never go out of style. It would look perfect in my office and provide some much needed background tunes as I work solo from home in my loft.

My go to fragrance for the past couple of years is the Jo Malone London Wood Sage & Sea Salt Eau de Cologne and it’s lasted me two years now. But it’s almost run out and I can’t imagine using another scent now, so I’d be very happy to find this under the tree.

My hair dryer really could do with an update. I mean only a few weeks ago G had to take mine apart to fix it, it’s that old. I have read so many great reviews about the Dyson Supersonic™ Hair Dryer, but I can’t decide if it’s worth spending the extra compared to traditional hair dryers. I’d love any feedback if you’ve tried one?

Now this is the super luxe gift of dreams. I have always had a soft spot for Mulberry handbags, however I’ve never owned one. I just love this Mulberry Abbey Leather Bucket Bag in Oxblood, of course!

I discovered Hush this year and I am in love. I’ve had my eye on the Amie Joggers for ages, they look so comfy and practical, which is me all over. Perfect for working from home and doing the school run. Plus their Love Saves The Day Jumper is just the cutest, perfect for a hopeless romantic like me.

This year I devoured, quite frankly, my fave programme of all time. This Is Us. If you’ve watched it you will know why I have my eye on this London Road Moon Pendant. If you haven’t watched it yet, do it you guys!

Finally I really am in need of some new Leggings, I am truly rubbish at buying unexciting staple items for my wardrobe, but I know it will feel so lovely to have a new pair!

Our house is an ongoing renovation project, we’ve done the bulk of the house now, but I am now going back to style out the rooms as we zipped through them pretty quickly over the past two years.

This Tipped Faux Fur Throw is perfect for snuggling on the sofa over the winter. I think it’ll make our living room so cosy with the log burner lit too.

I am wanting to get back into crafting again when I have the spare time and these Stork Embroidery Scissors have been on my wish list for a while, too cute!

Eucalyptus is here to stay isn’t it? Both in the home and in the wedding world. I think these stems would really add some pretty to our hallway.

We missed off buying a really lovely mirror for our en-suite, but this mirror certainly fits the bill and will go with our industrial modern style shower room perfectly. Hooray!

This year I’ve really stepped up my skincare game and thank goodness as my skin has really improved in doing so. I think in part thanks to the iconic PIXI Glow Tonic, which I will need a new bottle of soon at the rate I am using it! So I have also started to eye up some of their other products too like the PIXI Rose Tonic.

I’ve also been thinking about investing in a BB cream, I don’t wear make up 90% of the time, so it could be a good compromise for my super short morning routine. This Bobbi Brown BB Crème SPF 35 has great reviews and an SPF is an essential for me.

I am also about to run out of my eyebrow pencil and fancy trying something new. My brows are a little sparse so the Benefit Gimme Brow+ Volumising Brow Gel sounds perfect!

So there you have my Christmas wish list! I hope it’s given you some ideas either as a treat for yourself or for a special someone. Happy festive shopping lovelies! xo Lou
