Day 2 – Christmas Gift Guide Countdown

Good afternoon all.

It’s the 2nd of December and do you know what that means? It’s time for my second Christmas gift inspiration.

Day 2’s Christmas Gift Inspiration:

For the work Secret Santa

Average budget: £10 – £15

I bought this present for my work Secret Santa. We had a £10 – £15 budget and I wanted to get something that was indulgent and a bit different to the usual 3 for 2 offers that you get from Boots or similar stores. Inspired by my Pinterest search, I ended up going out and searching for a boozy hot chocolate gift and this is the end result.

Hamper breakdown:
  • Happy Holidays mug – H&M. I found this lovely mug in H&M’s home section which opened recently in Reading. You can purchase it online here. This mug usually retails at £6.99 but as I bought it on Black Friday weekend I saved 20% on this so it was virtually a steal. Plus, it is so cute I was tempted to steal this one for myself…

 

  • Mini Baileys – Morrisons. Is it even Christmas without Baileys?! Surprisingly, it’s not the easiest task to find these mini Baileys bottles – or at least it wasn’t in the stores near me. If I’d have been better prepared then I could have probably ordered these online but in the end I purchased a Baileys gift set for £5 from Morrisons and kept the glass for myself – #bonus! The Lindor chocolates were included so this was another steal.

 

  • Hot Chocolate Spoon – Whittard of Chelsea. What I love about this is that the mini marshmallows are included so I didn’t need to purchase these separately and it’s a bit different to making a normal hot chocolate. Having the chocolate on the spoon makes it feel a bit different and more luxurious. This was another Black Friday steal for me – usually £3.00 I managed to get this for £2. You can order it online here.

 

  • Salted Caramel Chocolate Nano Slab – Hotel Chocolat. This brings a final bit of luxury to the present and, having bought one for myself, this tastes delicious. Again, it doesn’t look like you can purchase this online but I picked it up at the till for £2 or less.

So, that’s day 2’s Christmas gift inspiration.

See you tomorrow for another boozy surprise!
