Everyone has someone they find hard to buy for at Christmas, don’t they? This year, I have teamed up with George at Asda and Talented Talkers to find out more about their Christmas gift guides and give you some ideas for those hard-to-buy-for family members.
Whether it’s something for the home, for him, for her or for children, George at Asda really have taken the pain out of Christmas shopping this year.
Their handy guide for everyone will mean your gifts will be thoughtful and well received and the best bit? You don’t even have to leave the comfort of your home.
That’s right. No Black Friday tussles for that kitchen mixer or LBD. Your gifts can be delivered, all ready for wrapping.
So how did my challenge work? Well, a group of bloggers were chosen to share the love this Christmas by selecting some lovely little gifts from Geroge at Asda’s Christmas Gifting range to send to another blogger, to be chosen by Talented Talkers aka – Santa’s Little Helpers!
Each had a budget of £50 to choose the items for our partnered blogger. Once we were told who our partner was, we were sent social media links and blog addresses and then it was time to stalk.
I went through at least six months worth of Instagram photos and my partner’s blog to try and get a feel for their personality and style.
The sad thing is, I can’t tell you what I chose as it would give the game away.
However I can show you what I received. I was blown away at how far £50 would go and I am not ashamed to admit I did a little squeal when I saw all of the lovely parcels in an absolutely enormous box.
Remember the song from The Sound of Music? There were so many brown paper packages tied up with (festive) string that I didn’t know where to start.
This is what I received.
A personalised E mug which I LOVE. £2.50
A red mixing bowl-perfect for a bit of Christmas baking £5.
A gold, glittery pillar candle, £3.
A snuggly shawl-perfect for cuddling on the sofa on cold days*. £8.
A pack of silver baubles, £4.
A festive apron £4.
A Yankee Candle large jar candle was actually on my Christmas list this year and here it is in Toasted Marshmallow and only £13.
A tweed-inspired shawl-scarf. Perfect for the biting wind on the farm, £10.
Two Champagne Coupes, £7.
Aren’t I a lucky girl?
I had so much fun choosing the gifts for my #GeorgeSecretSanta partner. I would honestly say just as much as receiving the lovely gifts for myself.
If my secret Santa could get my gifts so right, can you imagine being able to buy for family and friends who you know?
I cannot recommend George at Asda enough. I am off to buy personalised cushions for my family.
