In this third episode of my Unconventional Christmas Gift Guide I'm covering some cosy and warm gift ideas for the "homebound" or lounge lover!

In this third episode of my Unconventional Christmas Gift Guide I'm covering some cosy and warm gift ideas for the "homebound" or lounge lover!

For this third episode of my Unconventional Christmas Gift Guides series, I’m covering all things cosy and warm that any lounge lover or “homebound” in your life will definitely love! It’s a nice selection of natural beauty and aromatherapy, cosy loungewear and mugs and unique homeware and jewellery anyone who loves spending time at home will surely appreciate!

01. Ladies Lounge Socks ℅ Heat Holders
So let’s talk these magical socks, shall we?! They are made from a heavy bulk yarn that has extreme thermal properties and that has been brushed to be soft and trap warm air close to the skin. These are the softest warmest socks I have ever worn and I bet anyone suffering with cold feet will thank you a whole lot for getting them a pair.

02. L’Occitane Relaxing Pillow Mist & Cherry Blossom Hand Cream
Any “homebound” who loves natural beauty and at-home-pampering will surely appreciate a little L’Occitane set! They always stock a lot of premade gift sets, but you could also create your own to give your friend a selection of your favourite items. For me, no doubt, they’d be my beloved Relaxing Pillow Mist & Cherry Blossom Hand Cream – both great skincare and aromatherapy products.

03. Frank Body Coffee Scrub Kit 
I have shared the love for Frank Body scrubs in the past already a couple of times and I can’t help but think anyone should be introduced to them once in their lifetime! These are all-natural parabens-free coffee scrubs, great for all those sensitive skins out there, and, again, for anyone who loves a little home-based pampering session. They come in a bunch of different scents (my favourite being the Cacao option!) and they are very messy indeed, but so exfolianting and fun at the same time!

04. Button Necklace ℅ Theodora Gould
As soon as Theodora introduced me to her Button Necklace, I fell deeply in love with it! Not only I have always loved button-shaped jewellery, but her beautiful hand-crafted pieces all have a unique story behind them. Theodora Gould jewellery is inspired by vintage designs, history, nature but especially country living. Whether your “homebound” is a fashion lover or not (when it’s not in her loungewear, of course!), she will surely love wrapping something that so deeply remember of home and childhood, with such a simple delicate design, around her neck.

05. Garden Collage Homeware*
I bet any homebound would love to receive a couple of pieces from the beautiful Garden Collage homeware collection. Founded by Daisy Helman in 2015, Garden Collage is a fresh new online magazine covering stories about gardens, environmental innovation, plant-based beauty products and the charm of gardening in our modern world. They run a gardening, beauty and homeware shop alongside the magazine, and there they sell unique hand-picked brands that will be pretty appreciated by anyone with a taste for aesthetic in their homes!

06. Chelsea Peers Soft Peachy PJ Set
Of course any lounge lovers will be enthusiatic to unwrap some new soft PJ to add to their collection! This Chelsea Peers number is extremely cute in its peachy pink tone, but it’s also the softest PJ set I’ve ever worn (and I’ve worn a lot!). They have a shorts version as well, so you can’t really go wrong with this one!

07. BauHaus Mama Mug ℅ Anya Fennet
Whenever I find a mug underneath the Christmas tree, I’m just the happiest! I love mugs so much, that you’ll understand my excitement about a handmade wheel-thrown mug that looks this adorable and unique! Ania runs an interior design company and has just launched her BauHaus collection with cosy handmade clay pieces that will surely warm the heart of any tea/coffee drinker in your life!


That’s it for today’s Christmas Gift Guide! Make sure you come back every other day for more gifts and you didn’t miss any so far! Also, stay tuned until the very end for an exciting surprise (hint: it includes a gift… for you!).
