Christmas Gift Ideas

With Christmas fast approaching the last thing you need to be doing is rushing around the stores like a headless chicken! I know how chaotic it can get trying to search for that perfect item when there are people in your shoes pacing around the shop trying to find their own presents. It is always an idea to have a list of the sort of presents you need and if you can help it try to avoid doing last minute shopping, as this may make you feel even more stressed out.

Rest assured, I have put together a list of i carefully selected items in order to make that shopping trip a little bit more relaxed. Without further ado, let's get into it!

1. Coffee Machine

First things first I know a lot of Mamas like to have their morning fuel in the morning. What better way to do this then investing in a coffee machine?! I do not drink coffee personally, but I know that this may go down a treat for the coffee loving Mamas out there!

2. She Reads Truth Bible

Whilst on the topic of early morning fuel. I have one of these myself and I just cannot put it down. This She Reads Truth bible was purchased for me for my birthday and it is one of the best presents I happened to receive. I love the colourful pages and how there are little notes from the editors giving their take on things. This is another valuable investment and an essential tool for every Christian Mama!

3. Spa Treatment Bath Set

No time to go to the spa? Well, that is alright then. Think relaxation, but in the comfort and warmth of your own home. Why not treat a loved one to this kit and allow them to enjoy pampering themself.

Having the freedom to pamper yourself at home is a win!
