It's Christmas shopping time!

It’s November, we can talk about Christmas now right?!

I can’t believe its November, this year has gone sooo fast!
Its been a while since I did a post and I apologize, a lot has been happening in my life and it has taken up a lot of my time. But a few days ago I got an email about winter savings from UNIDAYS ( free online student discount system) and it has gotten me super excited!

So I thought I would do a post on gifts for Christmas. I wont be able to share my top ideas as I know my family read this and I don’t want them to find out what I am getting them :)

Ok so lets start

1. The Tech Geek and the Phone Addicts: I have been seeing these everywhere lately and i think they are an awesome idea. its a emergency mobile charger. There are loads of different kinds but for me two stand out. One is a phone case that doubles as a charger, called the Juice Jacket (for iphones), it is said to double your charge. It is a sleek and flexible case offering edge to edge protection while offering full access to all buttons and ports. It is currently £34.95 at PC world.

The other is called a Juice Cube, this compact cube is designed to slip into your bag and provide power for your Apple device or smartphone if you run out of battery life and can’t get to a power point. You charge it through a USB cable (provided) and then attach it to your device with one of the 8 universal connectors when you’re in need of a charge. And it comes in several colours ;) It is currently £24.95 at John Lewis. 

2. The Make-up Geek: Benefit do some incredible beauty products, they also do some incredible gift sets, part of their website is called sweet shoppe which has a load of gift sets for every girl. One is fun size flirts ( they all have awesome names!) which is a limited edition set of beauty best sellers for £29.50. ALSO this is on feel unique and atm they are offering a free benefit product with this item!
 Another is sweet tintations which is their best tint products from £19.50. But hurry as i don't know how long these products will last!! 

Feel unique also do great gift sets for men and women, to name a few; Bare minerals get started kit, Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Gift Set, Elemis men grooming solutions kit and a Jean Paul Gaultier "Le Male" Eau de Toilette 75ml Gift Set.

3. The Fuss Pot: Two words, GIFT CARD. For the music fanatic, Itunes, the fashion guru, their favorite store, if they don't have one (or you don't know it) I would suggest House Of Fraser as they have so many brands. And for the extreme fuss pot? as i live in Bristol my suggestion would be a Cabot Circus gift card, this can be used in any of the stores in Cabot Circus (shopping center in Bristol city centre). I'm sure that shopping centres all over the country offer this so don think that its limited to Bristol. 

OK. I am not sure what websites that I have mentioned have student discount but if you go on to the UNIDAYS website they have a list of all the places that offer it online and in store. 

I hope this has been helpful and given you some good ideas.

Stay awesome.
