    A Sustainable Christmas With Kambukka | A Reusable Mug For Him & Her

    Christmas Lights, Bury St Edmunds

    Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year, despite how often I moan about the cold and how busy it is. I love that you can almost feel magic in the air. I love Christmas lights and festive drinks and precious time off with loved ones. Jamie and I often try to take festive trips in December, which aren’t complete without gingerbread lattes and marshmallow hot chocolates. If there’s one thing I dislike about the festivities though, it’s the notorious, and disposable, coffee shop red cup. With my Kambukka reusable mug, festive drinks on-the-go don’t secure me a place on the naughty list. Read more

    A Gift Guide For Him (What He Actually Wants) | My Boyfriends Picks

    Gift Guide For Him

    It is me, or are men notoriously difficult to buy for? When I compile gift guides for her, I find myself having to condense the list down, but almost didn’t even bother with a gift guide for him. Essentially, I just didn’t want to try to fill a post out by recommending average and uninspiring picks. That is until I asked Jamie to write me a Christmas list of things he’d like, and inspiration struck. Who better to give insight into what the men in our lives actually want for Christmas than another man? Read more

    Stocking Filler Suggestions For Her: Affordable Christmas Gifts Under £20

    Stocking Filler Gift Guide

    I was only recently speaking with some friends about how much Christmas gifting has changed. When I was a child most stocking filler items cost around £5, but money went a lot further then. Now, my household would categorise a stocking filler as under £20, so although there are vast differences in what people are happy to pay for gifts at Christmas, that’s the budget I’ve set for this guide. Bearing that in mind, here are my gift suggestions for good quality and thoughtful stocking fillers for her. Read more

    Eco-Friendly Gifts | A More Sustainable Christmas Gift Guide

    Eco-Friendly, Sustainable Christmas Gifts

    To some, the term ‘eco-friendly gifts’ is somewhat of an oxymoron. We have consumerist mindsets, trained to seek out shiny, new gifts, usually guarded by walls of unnecessary plastic. Sustainability isn’t an overly festive concept, but it’s desperately needed. We can do our bit by shopping locally and buying more eco-friendly gifts where possible. If you’re sceptical then I hope that this gift guide will show that sustainability doesn’t have to compromise on quality.

    How To Make A Head Start On The New Year

    Each January comes with a great deal of pressure. After spending a large part of the previous month gorging and buying into a consumerist culture that leaves us wondering where all of that money actually went? We do a 180. It’s a new year, so we resolve to save money and cut out the types of food we’ve recently eaten in excess. Although there’s beauty in the clean slate of a new year, that’s not to say that plans and preparations can’t be made prior to it. We don’t have to wait until the clock strikes 12 on the very last day of the year. Deciding what changes to make and how we plan to spend the year ahead can be made beforehand. I’ve already been considering the start of a new decade (scary, right?). Here’s how I’m getting a head start on the new year. Read more
