Worry not, whether it's a genuine slip of the mind, an unexpected holiday party or receiving a present you weren't expecting and getting in a flap trying to reciprocate, I have some ideas that could be worth keeping in mind (or even keeping a few in the cupboard!) just in case! Better yet, most of them are not Christmas-centric so, if you buy a few to have on-hand that you don't use, you could always save them up for future birthdays etc.
Rituals Fragrance Sticks - €23.50
Ever since I tried Rituals in a Glossybox many moons ago, I have been in love with the brand. These reed diffusers are a lovely alternative to a candle and are great to bring to a house or to give to someone who you know likes nice smellys like candles, flowers etc.
Tangle Teezer - €13.48
This might seem like a strange little present but, trust me, everyone ends up loving the Tangle Teezer! You can get them relatively cheap and often on 3-for-2 in Boots so, great for picking up in that final Christmas rush. These also make amazing stocking stuffers for both young girls and older women.
Real Techniques Core Collection - €28.99
I got to the end of my wishlists and realised I had totally forgot to include the Real Techniques Core Collection. But, then I realised it would be a perfect gift to have on-hand for a fellow beauty obsessed lady or easy to pick up quickly on a trip to Boots, perfect for last minute shopping!
Newbridge Silverware Steam Train Christmas Decoration - €25.00
These Newbridge Silverware Christmas decorations are the perfect gift to bring along to a Christmas party or dinner in someone's house. They come packaged in a gorgeous little box and each piece is beautifully crafted. It's something that is suitable for a man, woman or couple and is a nice bit of nostalgia.
Blue Star Patterned Mug - €15.00
I spotted this mug in Debenhams a few weeks ago and filed it away into the "For My Future Kitchen" list! I love the colourway and abstract stars and stripes and, if only they weren't €15 apiece, I would have a full set! However, one or two of these would make a lovely little gift, especially if you don't know the person too well.
