Christmas Gift Guide, Christmas Traditions and Win a £25 John Lewis Voucher
Reading Time: 1 minute

Every year I say to myself, “next year I will start a Christmas fund pot”. Guess what? I never do. I try to be organised, I try not to be that person that shops on Christmas eve – thankfully I am not, but I do leave it later than I would like to.  Some years it’s all about buying the perfect gift and other years it’s a case of just getting through the gift list.

If you haven’t yet thought about Christmas and haven’t got a clue what to get your loved ones, then hopefully my gift guide packed with 50 ideas and 13 traditions will give you some inspiration this Christmas. Plus a chance to win a John Lewis gift card worth £25.

    We bought our DJI Phantom Pro4 drone from John Lewis. In fact, we buy all of our gadgets, big or small, from JL as they offer a 2 year warrantee and their customer service is second to none.
    I’d definitely love the Dyson Hairdryer! In fact, id definitely love anything Dyson! I’m sure the children will love new Micro Scooters as they’re a bit big now for the mini size so its definitely time for an upgrade.
    Regarding the traditions – I was playing Kylie’s Christmas hits today, absolutely NOT too early for a bit of a bit of Santa baby!

    I always say that I will be more organised each year and start early and I have actually managed to start early this year. I have been eyeing up advent calendars already and thinking about what I will buy Pops. I’m not too interested in gifts for me I really prefer the traditions, food, silly games and meeting up with the whole family! Can’t wait!
