So – November is with us already! For me that means time to start the Christmas shopping, as with a massive family like mine it’s far too stressful to leave it until December. I’d rather spread it out, and spread the cost over two months too. As always, most of my gifts will be coming from QVC so I thought I’d share a few thoughts and ideas with you, and maybe get some from you too!
First, the beauty buy of the year has to be the Today’s Special Value offer from Elemis, which will be on air on Sunday 11th but is now available for early birds – click here to buy! This amazing Pro-Collagen Day to Night Skincare Gift collection is worth over £168 but selling for under £47. It contains six products and there’s a choice of two options, one featuring the divine new Warm Tonka and Vanilla range. It would make such a wonderful gift (or several gifts, if you split it up) and even comes with a beautiful big box plus a second, smaller gift box. A definite winner.

For friends who love a bit of sparkle and something a bit different, I’ve got my eye on the November Diamonique Design of the Month, which is the cutest little pair of reindeer stud earrings. Simulated diamonds, a simulated garnet for the red nose, gold-plated sterling silver and all for £19.
For the foodies in my life, I’m thinking about the yummy six-piece Chocolate Lovers’ Hamper from Calico Cottage which is beautifully packed and under £20, and the phone kiosk and Big Ben biscuit tins from Churchill’s, which are gorgeous and collectable and full of their delicious mini choc chip shortbread, and cost just £14.50 for the two.
For those who like house plants I think the aloe vera in a pot from Thompson & Morgan is a great buy at £15, and as its sap is anecdotally good for soothing burns, might be useful for whoever is cooking Christmas lunch!
My fashionista sisters will like the Pia Rossini Elisha scarf with its fabulous faux fur bobbles and the Claudia bobble hat.
And the smaller children in my life will adore Zookies! You get two of these adorable plush toys (which grab onto your wrist/leg/chair/bedhead/anything!) for just £24. We had them on the Morning Show one day last week and had so much fun with them… I’d quite like one myself! I love the tiger and elephant duo.
So that’s my list started. If you have any great QVC gift ideas do let me know…I have a lot of people to buy for! You can leave a comment below this blog. Have a good week!
