Christmas Gift Ideas to Pamper

November 29, 2017

Looking for some gift ideas for your female friends and family?  Gift giving can really become over the top and a chore, especially if you have a tight budget.

Yesterday, I was out shopping and found some great buys that I think my female friends and family will just love.  I usually buy a small gift for my Saturday Sisters where we exchange at our annual Christmas Champagne Breakfast which is this coming Saturday plus I buy small gifts for family and other female friends in my life.

A visit to Terry White Chemist and Sussan provided some great gifts which I would really like to keep for myself but I won’t of course.  Some of these products are from small Australian businesses so it is always good to support local suppliers.

The Wellness Box

Know someone who loves tea? This Wellness gift box from Your Tea contains 12 tea bags – 4 x Happy Tea, 4 Antoxidant Tea, 4 x Sleep Tea and 4 x Energy Tea.  They did have other varieties and even a Man Box!

Joy pack

This gorgeous Joy Pack from Natio contains Sparkling Citrus and Lavender Body Cleanser, Skin Nutritiion Body Lotion, Antioxidant Hand and Nail Cream plus a Nation keepsake box.

A lovely Soap from Natio Wellness range with soap dish is inexpensive but most of us love receiving special soap don’t we?

Pilbeam’s Inner Spirit Flowers Floral Blend set of 4 fragranced sachets make a lovely gift.

Bath salts

A great way to be pampered is to luxuriate in a bath and these Lemongrass & Lime Bath Sales from Peppermint Grove Australia are perfect.

Affirmation Cards

These cute little affirmation cards from Affirmations Publishing House also come with Puppy tales.  I have a friend who loves cats so these kittens will provide 24 daily affirmations with a different kitten on each one.

None of these gifts were very expensive but it really is the thought behind the giving that counts.

How is your Christmas shopping going?  Will you be visiting the shops or shopping online? I know my daughter does most of her shopping online and loves the idea because it certainly saves her time and the hassle of crowds. Leave me a comment below with your thoughts.

Disclaimer:  I was not paid or given product to write about any of these gifts.  These are my own suggestions and thoughts on the product.

    Gorgeous items, Sue – thanks for the shopping inspiration. x

      They are lovely, Toni and something you normally wouldn’t buy for yourself. X

    I love those cute little wooden spoons on bath salts. No real idea why, I just do!

    • Reply Sue Loncaric November 30, 2017 at 08:54

      I do too Vanessa! I didn’t write that but when I saw it I thought it was the perfect little addition. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend. x

    What a lovely set of gift ideas. Now, if I hadn’t already finished my shopping… (stops to gloat…) #TeamLovinLife

    • Reply Sue Loncaric November 30, 2017 at 10:35

      Oh okay smarty pants! I’ve almost finished mine LOL:) Looking forward to seeing you on the 9th x

    You’ve certainly been busy! I haven’t bought many presents at all this year – our kids want cash (they have their plans already in place for what to spend it on!) and I’m even having trouble coming up with something for Ross! At least Sophia’s gifts are bought and have Mum approval so I’m doing okay there.

    • Reply Sue Loncaric December 2, 2017 at 06:20

      Some years I just get in the mood early and it all comes together Leanne. You are going to have so much fun with Sophia this year, it will be lovely for you all. x

    Gee Sue I’m impressed that you have started your Christmas shopping so early. I haven’t really given much thought to mine yet. I like some these ideas and will have to take a look next time out shopping. Christmas is approaching rapidly! #TeamLovinLife

    • Reply Sue Loncaric December 2, 2017 at 06:21

      I was having trouble thinking of what to buy Kathy and then when I went to Terry White and had a look around I found my inspiration. I like to get things out of the way early and avoid the crowds if I can. I had to buy gifts for this Saturday for my Champagne Breakfast with my Saturday Sisters, so just continued on with the others that were on my gift list.

    What a lovely collection of gifts, in the true sense of the word. Something a little luxurious, that perhaps one wouldn’t buy for oneself. I like the look of the Natio gift pack please Santa!

    • Reply Sue Loncaric December 2, 2017 at 06:22

      Of course Jo, I will arrange Santa to send you one! 🙂 I agree that these gifts are perfect because not many of us buy the little luxuries and they are always a pleasure to receive.

  • Reply Deborah November 30, 2017 at 19:39

    Some gorgeous ideas there Sue. I love the affirmation cards and of course my love of baths always mean bath products are an easy gift for me. Interestingly I have distant relatives who don’t go down that route and always buy dried fruit – which I’ve never eaten – instead! #teamlovinlife

    • Reply Sue Loncaric December 2, 2017 at 06:23

      I thought of you Deb when I bought the bath salts because I know you love your bath! Some relatives just have no idea do they? You just have to smile and say thank you even though you might be cringing inside. Have a great weekend x

  • Reply Emma November 30, 2017 at 20:37

    Love the tea gift set. I have bought something similar a few times for an aunt and I know they always go down well.

    • Reply Sue Loncaric December 2, 2017 at 06:24

      I love tea Emma and shops like T2 have made it even more popular with all the different varieties they have. I love this pack because it is a little different and has 4 varieties for you to try. Have a lovely weekend and thanks for stopping by x

    I LOVE Natio! It’s my fave skin care brand. I often give their products as gifts and have a bit of a stash in the cupabord, ready for Christmas 🙂 #TeamLovinLife

    • Reply Sue Loncaric December 2, 2017 at 06:59

      I agree Lyndall, they have beautiful products. This gift I purchased was so beautifully presented and had a free mini case for jewllery or makeup to go with it – that’s a bonus. Have a great weekend and see you on the 9th! x

    Your Christmas gift ideas are great ideas! You can never go wrong with a pampering gift idea! I need to start shopping for Christmas. I like to keep it simple. I’m a fan of online shopping, but I will probably be going to the stores this year. Have a great Holiday season!

    • Reply Sue Loncaric December 4, 2017 at 05:13

      I really loved them Natalie and am tempted to keep some for myself! They are the type of gifts that people appreciate because they don’t usually buy them for themselves. Happy Holidays and good luck with the shopping! Have a great week!

    I love the idea of a Wellness Box #teamlovinlife

    • Reply Sue Loncaric December 7, 2017 at 09:45

      yes it is a little different and they all loved it!

  • Reply Teresa December 10, 2017 at 13:25

    These are all such lovely and thoughtful gifts. I’m torn between the Your Tea Wellness box and the Lavender Drawer Sachet! I’m sure whichever one you chose was loved by the receiver. Thank you for sharing and co-hosting at the #BloggingGrandmothersLinkParty! I’ve pinned and shared.

    • Reply Sue Loncaric December 11, 2017 at 09:15

      Yes they are two of my favourites as well Teresa. Thanks for sharing and stopping by to comment xx
