Christmas Gift Guide for Her

November 26th  •  Posted in Lifestyle

Christmas Gift Guide For Her

With Christmas less than one month away (anyone else excited?!), and the sales just around the corner, it’s definitely time for me to share some gift ideas, if any of you need some inspiration! I know for a fact that a gift guide is just the best thing ever existed when you need some Christmas shopping ideas, so I’ve put together a couple of ideas for girls today (and guys in the next days!), whether they’re mums, girlfriends, friends, sisters or even your grandma!

One Line A Day Memory BookGingerbread Christmas Phone Case – Friend/Sister

Great for friends and sisters are gifts like the One Line A Day dairy, the cutest present to store five year worth of memories, or a cute phone case if you fancy! The latter is also perfect as stocking filler for literally anyone!

We have our own Casetify line of phone cases if you’d like something very unique and hand-drawn, that you can check out here! And with the code PRESALE20 you can get a juicy 20% off discount code on everything too at the moment! ; )

Tiger Wall Sticker (similar here & here),
Kirstie Allsopp Fabric Covered Notebook Kit – Creative Girls

Anything cute that can involve trying their hands at something new or sticking something somewhere, it’s just the gift any creative girl would want to unwrap! All the Kirstie Allsopp DIY kits are super lovely and would be great gifts for something a little different (maybe you know someone who loves notebooks and to stay organized and think a DIY notebook kit would be the perfect thing for her?!), but for something smaller and a nice one as stocking filler, Tiger has a lovely selection of the cutest wall stickers at the moment that you want to gift to any creative in your life ASAP!

Diptyque Baies CandleLush Rose Jam Shower Gel – Mum/Grandma

Even though everyone has his own preferences, I bet most mums and grandma’s would love a little rose scented gift, whether it’s a candle or a skincare item! I love the smell of the Diptyque Baies candle and Lush Rose Jam myself, and would love to receive them as gifts – but with anything floral-scented (maybe bath products?) you can’t go wrong!

Pattern Top/Shirt – Anyone!

And if you lack of ideas, a cute pattern top, shirt or even sweater is always the answer. This H&M dragonfly top’s print had me at hello, and I bet any girl would love a great layering piece!

And don’t forget to come back in the next days for gift ideas for all the men in your life!

Etsy Christmas Gift Guide

Etsy Christmas Gift Guide

First of all, as with the recent email I sent to all Miel Café’s newsletter subscribers, I hope these lines meet you in a safe and happy time. Hope you all are well!


This is my favourite time of the year: with Christmas around the corner (can you even believe it?!), it’s already time to get our minds around gift shopping, and even though that’s one of the activities I most love, I’m sure there’s someone of you who finds it stressful! This year’s very first Christmas gift guide it’s dedicated to small business owners and the cutest Etsy shops you’ll ever find! I’ve put together a list of all cute (and very inexpensive) gift ideas – I realize they’re mainly girly stuff but that’s what I’m usually after on Etsy! – perfect for friends or family, and, best thing between all, they’re all handmade from very talented people from all over the world!

I thought for this first Christmas gift guide, I’d put in a little bit of everything: from local homemade food (look at that raw honey!), to pretty stationery and homeware, from beautiful + comfy lingerie to cute coloring books (great for children but also adults!). These are mainly both items on top of my very own Etsy wishlist or products I do have bought for myself and have loved! Hope you can find it inspirational! x

Christmas Gift Guide :: For Him

November 26th  •  Posted in Lifestyle

You might have read last week’s Christmas Gift Guide :: For Her where I started this year’s Christmas blog series; this time I’ve teamed up with my boyfriend to bring you the ultimate gift guide for him! All these gifts are boyfriend approved and something he would love to receive for Christmas but also things that can be great gifts for others too! But of course, I approved them myself so that these are realistically what a girl (me) would buy for a boy/man… I personally love buying gifts for men, however I can see that sometimes it’s not that easy like buying something for a girl, especially if you’re a girl, so hopefully this can inspire you a little!

1 :: For commuters ;
ASOS iPad Mini Case with Straps
If your boy travels a lot or live on the underground most days of the week, and of course if he owns an iPad Mini, this might be the perfect gift for him! I love the simplicity of this case and how great the strap looks.

2 :: For crafters ;
ASOS Grow Your Own Chili Kit
This is such a cool gift idea especially as stocking filler, and especially if your boy loves crafts and DIYs! This kit includes a terracotta pot, chili seeds and soil, but if you fancy you can make your guy grow a little Cherry Tomato Plant too!

3 :: For tech lovers ;
Muji Fairisle Touchscreen Gloves
I love the look of the winter-y pattern on these gloves, and I’m sure they would make for an awesome gift for boys that like to use their phones/tablets everywhere, even in the cold!

4 :: For readers ;
Kindle Voyage
I don’t know about yours, but my boyfriend’s weakness must be e-Readers and he’s surely after the new Kindle this year: lightweight, featuring an adaptive front light and a higher resolution, these are a few of the reasons why you should pick the new Kindle, even though I’m still a huge fan of the good old Paperwhite.

5 :: For more readers ;
Moleskine Book Journal
If your guy likes to read but you want something more on a budget, this Moleskine journal is such a cool little gadget: a tun of fillable sections for all the book’s details, a big space to write his thoughts on every book, cute little stickers and the quality of Moleskine can’t not make for a great well-thought present!

6 :: For his phone ;
Christmas Sweater Phone Case
A little bit of auto-promotion here – and this is also the first time I talk about this exciting project of mine on here, but I’ve a little phone case line available on Casetify, where my illustrations/patterns can be bought as phone cases for every phone really! Nice, uh? I’ve designed a pair of Christmas themed cases already, and we think the Christmas Sweater case would be perfect for guys!
(p.s. :: use the code U98MZ9 to have $10 off your order!)

7 :: For winter lovers ;
River Island Christmas Sweater
There’s nothing I love more than buying Christmas themed clothes as gifts and if you do too and your boy likes winter prints, than you can’t go wrong with this super cute yet neutral Christmas sweater!

8 :: For sleepyheads ;
H&M Duvet Cover Set with Deer Print
You might remember that I mentioned a duvet cover in my last gift guide last week, and I thought I would include another on here: this deer printed bedding set is perfect for guys and I’ve actually bought one for my boyfriend already and he loves it!
