Whether you’re buying a present for yourself or know of another blogger in your life you want to buy for this Christmas, here are some great blogger gift ideas to consider getting.

Enya Large Rustic Brown Wrap Journal – £25.50

Rustic Brown Wrap Journal

An organised blogger is a happy blogger, if you ask me. This journal is a luxurious one that would be perfect for someone who really does take and make a lot of notes. Of course, you can get any style journal, but for a special gift I recommend this one, especially because it can be personalised.

Nikon coolpix S7000 Superzoom Compact Camera – £149.00

nikon-coolpix

Bloggers with a camera get to take their own fab photos rather than relying on the use of internet uploads. Now, I’m no camera expert, but a friend recommended this one as a gift for bloggers. Some of its product features include 16 megapixels, 20x Optical zoom plus built-in WiFi and NFC. If you want a more trusted opinion, you can always ask around, or you can trust the information given to me and check out this sweet little camera which is travel-friendly.

Blogmas Day 2: 5 Gifts That Keep On Giving

gifts-that-keep-on-giving

Giving presents are great, but what about giving presents that keep on giving? If you’re a bit stuck on what to give this Christmas, I’ve picked a couple of special gifts that will keep on giving to others…

Toms Shoes

Not only are you giving one pair of shoes to someone this Christmas, but you are giving another free pair to someone less fortunate who needs them. “TOMS offers brand new, made-to-order shoes in a variety of styles to meet the needs of the children our Giving Partners serve.” As of right now, the company has given over 60 million pairs of shoes to children in need. For more information about the project, check out the website.

Adopt a TIGER

Adopting a tiger for someone this year means your monthly donation will help the WWF protect tigers as well as the world we live in. In return,  as an ‘official Tiger Protector’ you will receive a personalised tiger certificate, regular tiger news, a fact pack and a personalised story book ‘The Tiger Protector’ featuring a child and adult of your choice in the story.

Sponsor a Dog

smudge
With personal experience from this, I can tell you this was such a fun gift growing up. When my dad’s dog passed away, he was too ill to get another and so he used the money he spent on Jasper to sponsor a dog for me. My dad’s choice of charity was ‘Dogs Trust’ and I loved getting regular updates from my sponsor dog, Smudge, as well as little gifts and a certificate. There are multiple charities who do the ‘sponsor a dog’ for different causes.

Gift of Emergency Supplies To Help A Syrian Child

For some people, giving materialistic gifts is not of much worth to them, so how about this year instead of gifting to one another, you donate to a worthy cause? Of course, there are millions of charities who offer gift options, but one in particular that caught my attention was this UNICEF one. For just £18, you can send emergency supplies to help a Syrian child.

UNICEF offers many different gifts. For more info, click here.

The Gift of equipment for a Traditional Birth Attendant

gift-equipment

The gift of equipment for a Traditional Birth Attendant is a donation to provide the funds for training materials a basic set of sterile equipment and kit bag for an IMPACT-trained Traditional Birth Attendant.

TBAs safeguard the lives of mothers and babies during pregnancy, birth and beyond. IMPACT gift tokens are presented in an attractive gift wallet and come packaged with details of the gift; newsletter; and a tea towel designed by the artist Jilly Sutton, which was inspired by her visit to IMPACT’s projects in Bangladesh.

For more info, click here.

So this year, instead of gifting something that may not be too appreciated or end up soon in a skip or on eBay, I hope that many of you will choose a gift which keeps on giving.

Disney Nerd: A gift guide for the Disnerd in your life

disney-nerd

It’s been so long since I’ve done a Disney Nerd post, but after roaming around the Disney Store in Cardiff and all the Christmas products out, I’ve decided to revive the series with a brand spanking new post to help you this festive season!

Christmas is rapidly approaching and while Disney is a fairly obvious choice for many young ones, it can also be great for gifts for older people, too. Because whether you agree or not, Disney is not just for kids! Walt himself even said it. So, if you have a Disnerd in your life, I have some perfect gift ideas for you and they’re all in this blog.

 

Mickey Mouse Icon Necklace – £39.00

Disney necklace

This beauty is from the ‘Arribas Jewelled Collection’ which features Swarovski crystals. It’s perfect for the typical Disney classic fan who loves a bit of jewellery in their life.

Available from the Disney Store

101 Dalmatians Glazed Mug – £6.99

101-dalmatians-mug

I love a good Disney mug and this one seems to be a decent size, especially for the price! 101 Dalmatians is also my favourite from Disney, so it’s no surprise that my friend bought this for me for my birthday!

Available from the Disney Store

 

Alice in Wonderland Book Print Cushion Cover – £12.95

alice-in-wonderland-cushion

This isn’t officially Disney, but perfect for those who are wandering in Wonderland. I think this is a beautiful cover which I’d have in my room – that is, if my mother doesn’t nick it for herself to put in the living room!

Available from Etsy

Disney Inspired Candle Holders – £5.99 each

disney-candles

These are so beautiful and I’d really love to collect all of them. There’s quite a few to choose from on the site and I really think it shows off your Disney side without it being too OTT.

Kinkade Disney Dreams Calendar 2017 – £9.99

disney-calendar

I bought the 2016 version of this for my mother and she loved it so much that she plans to save some of her favourite images and frame them. The artwork is simply stunning and perfect to add into the home of any Disney lover.

Available from Calendar Club

Dumbo Vintage Disney Wash Bag – £7.99

dumbo-wash-bag

I love vintage Disney so much! This cosmetics bag is perfect for storing make up or for a travel wash bag or even a pencil case. Whatever your recipient uses it for, it’ll be sure to look adorable.

ASOS Disney iPhone 6 Case – £6.00

Disney phone case

This saves your phone from being damaged and just looks super adorable. What’s not to love? A perfect stocking filler.

Disney Don’t Be Grumpy Be Happy Wash Bag Set – £14.99

dont-be-grumpy-be-happy

Ideal for the Grumpy in your life! I’ve actually been eyeing this up for my stepdad because we always get him Grumpy stuff because he kind of looks like him and he also loves bath stuff. I thought I should point out there are a ton of more Disney gifts such as this and the Dumbo bag on Truffle Shuffle – it was difficult not putting every item in this guide!

 Available from Truffle Shuffle

Disney Princess A5 Diary 2017 – £8.99

disney-diary

Once Upon A Dream Novel – £7.99

Once Upon A Dream Novel

If you’ve got a bookworm in the family, this is perfect. I’ve seen a few in this series in various stores including Tesco and Waterstones. I have every intention of getting the entire collection once I track it down, but plan to start with this one as Sleeping Beauty is my favourite princess, besides Pocahontas.

Available from the Disney Store

POP! Disney Mickey Mouse – £9.71

Disney Mickey Mouse Funko Pop

Funko Pop figures have proven to be fairly popular, especially with Disnerds. These pop culture pieces are the perfect ornaments which aren’t too easy to break. They come in many characters but I absolutely adore this retro Mickey. Now I know these are available in many places, including some Disney Stores, but the only link I could find is on Amazon.

Available from Amazon

Disney Traditions Winnie the Pooh Figurine – £10.99

Winnie The Pooh Disney Traditions Figurine

The Disney Traditions figurines are a classic collection and have a lot to choose from, but I cannot get over the cuteness of this Pooh Bear figure – just look at him! My mother has a cupboard in our living room dedicated to Disneyana (the name for Disney memorabilia) and has many of these. I think she’s caught wind I’ve bought her one for Christmas, though!

Available from the Disney Store 

Disney Bambi Boxed Pyjama Set – £13.00

Disney Bambi Primark Pyjamas

Primark are currently best known for their incredible Disney nightwear range and this gorgeous set is no exception. It’s boxed, which makes it the perfect present to wrap. And who doesn’t love Bambi?
