Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide

Mary Poppins Umbrella

With just two weeks until Christmas Day, it is time to finish off that Christmas shopping, so you can relax, put your feet up and enjoy a stress free run up to Christmas.

If like me, you still have a few more gifts to buy, don’t panic – I have some fun suggestions here for all ages:

For Mum

The new Mary Poppins film is released on 21st December, starring Emily Blunt as the magical nanny.

With the winter weather well and truly upon us, why not treat your Mum to see the film at the cinema and keep her dry from the rain with this fantastic full size Mary Poppins inspired umbrella.

This Mary Poppins Umbrella from Paladone is an officially licensed Mary Poppins product and complete with a parrot head handle and the phrase ‘Practically perfect in every way‘ written across its top making it a wonderful gift for lovers of the Walt Disney picture. 

For Dad

If your Dad is the adventurous type, why not head over to Buy A Gift for a range of gift ideas suitable for those craving a bit of adventure.

One idea that really caught my eye was the Seabreacher Watercraft adventure on the Thames.

Strap in and hold tight for this whirlwind of a ride at one of the world’s most extreme and revolutionary water sports! These incredibly unique semi-submersible vessels boast a 300HP engine, reaching speeds of up to 60mph on the water’s surface and can even dive below at up to 40mph! Not one for the faint hearted, you will leap, roll and dive, turning doughnuts and 90 degrees angle side rolls across the water, as your expert driver takes you on an adrenaline ride on the Thames.

For Grandparents

I love my traditional remedies for aches and pains and one of my favourite relaxation treats of the moment is relaxing in a bath of Vie Epsom Foot & Bath Salts.

Epsom Salts were always loved by my Grandmother and I can see why as they work by increasing your magnesium levels, delivering important sulphates which are extremely difficult to source through food but which readily absorb through the skin.

Medical research indicates sulphates are needed for the formation of brain tissue, joint proteins and the mucin proteins that line the walls of the digestive tract. Sulphates also stimulate the pancreas to generate digestive enzymes and help to detoxify the body’s residue of medicines and environmental contaminants.

Vie Epsom Foot and Bath Salts cost £8.95 for 1.8kg from www.vie-healthcare.com

For Beauty Buffs

Keep your complexion glowing and fuzz-free with Finishing Touch Flawless (£19.99 from www.JMLdirect.com)

With an 18 karat gold-plated and micro-precision trimming head that’s safe to touch, for instant and painless hair removal, with no risk of redness or irritation.

With a slim, discreet design, an inbuilt light and micro-blade technology, Finishing Touch Flawless will always help keep your loved ones picture-perfect. You can remove that unwanted peach fuzz, or any facial hair that catches your makeup and shows up in the sunlight!

For Boys

The world’s original football brand is delivering fans a unique collection of Avengers: Infinity War Mitre balls, inspired by the Marvel Super Heroes.


The new range, launching in time for Christmas, unites the heroes from Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War with Mitre, to deliver a series of footballs that will excite and inspire fans of all ages.

Available in Scriball and Match Ball, the collection includes the stealth and stamina of Black Panther. The speed and reflex of Spider-Man. And the tactical prowess of Iron Man. The range lets you be your own
kind of hero, in adventures on and off the pitch.

For Girls

With fans such as Victoria Beckham, Rita Ora, Sienna Miller, Claudia Schiffer and many more, everyone is raving about Moccis!

Moccis®  are the first and only luxury hand sewn Swedish moccasins to bring fashion, function, and fun to adult and children’s indoor footwear worldwide.

Moccis are a hybrid of a sock and slipper in one, making them the perfect indoor footwear. They feature a soft leather sole that prevents you from slipping and falling down and are super soft and cozy, yet indestructible.
