Gifts for Girls || Christmas Love


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Now, I don't want to panic you, but Christmas is only 60 days away and it might be time to start thinking about presents. 

For me, Christmas shopping is always quite stressful and I like to start as early as I can to avoid mid-aisle meltdowns and a completely ruined bank account. I find that by shopping in a timely manner (ie, not leaving everything til mid December) and using an array of sources, you can gift people with beautiful items and enjoy the whole experience. 

Over the next few weeks I'll be talking a lot about gift ideas, decor, memories and activities, but today, it's a gifty one. Hurrah!



I bought Love Listography from ebay for one of my girl chums after buying a copy for my Sister from a home outlet store and absolutely loving it. 

The book itself is printed on sturdy rounded edged paper with beautiful illustrations and each page has a title in which you are to write underneath. Seeing as the book is based around love, so are the lists- "Favourite Romantic Movies, Best Dates You've Been On, etc".

I adore doodling and jotting down notes, ideas and lists so this is the kind of thing that would totally appeal to me and I hope to the gal I am gifting it to too! 

At around the £12 mark, this is an inexpensive and easy present to give. Two more upsides- Mr Postman will deliver it to your door AND books are easy peasy to wrap! Hooray!

Have you read this book? Are you a list lover?

Toodlepip!

  16. What a good find Louise! I love presents like these that are a little different. I recently found books that you give to members of your family (eg your parents, grandparents & siblings) which are full of questions for them to answer for example:- 1) how did they feel when you were born? 2) describe our first holiday together 3) what was it like when you were growing up?. When the book is returned to you its a great keepsake that you can treasure always.

  28. Unlike you I absolutely love Christmas shopping. It makes me cheerful. I am always anxious to start my shopping and usually finish too early for my liking because then I feel kind of like I am missing out.

    I am a huge list maker. I doodle a half dozen lists a day. I think this book would be great.

  33. I can't wait for my Christmas shopping! I'm going to buy loads of little mini sets, then open them all, and put one of each mini in loads of bags so it's a whole gift full of loads of little minis, like lip balms, glosses, moisturisers and stuff :) I'm really looking forward to it!
