Weirdly it doesn't feel like Christmas at all this year. Martin and I have not been home much so we didn't bother to decorate it. I had never done a gift guide before because for me Christmas is not about gifts. In my family we actually only do a secret Santa which I think works very well. So instead of rushing to buy God knows how many presents, we focus on buying just one! This way it's a lot less stressful and, instead of receiving a tone of unnecessary stuff, you actually end up getting one good gift. In case you are in need of some inspiration, here you can find some gift suggestions for different budgets although is worth remembering that sometimes the ideal gift does not come in any guide :)
Este ano o meu espírito natalício está um bocado em baixo, tanto eu como o Martin não temos estado muito em casa então não nos demos ao trabalho de a decorar. Eu nunca tinha feito um gift guide porque para mim o Natal não é de todo sobre presentes. Na minha família apenas fazemos um amigo secreto o que eu acho que resulta muito bem. Assim em vez de se andar numa correria a comprar não sei quantos presentes, focamo-nos apenas num. Deste modo é menos stressante e a pessoa que nos calha acaba por receber um presentinho de melhor qualidade uma vez que é o único em que temos de nos concentrar. Deixo-vos aqui algumas sugestões de prendas para variados budgets caso necessitem de inspiração embora às vezes o presente ideal não venha em gift guide nenhum :)
This is SUCH a cool present. This collection is a tribute to amazing American female writers that have produced innumerable novels, short stories, and memoirs throughout the nation’s first 240 years.
I literally can not sleep without my Slip mask. Specially in London where my bedroom isn’t dark enough. You barely feel it on your face, it’s a dream.
Wasted Rita is a Portuguese artist. She just has this really powerful voice and I love how free and unfiltered her art is.
I know people think scent candles are a boring gift, but I just love them. Always happy to receive candles and books.
Celebrate your lady’s body and get her boobies turned into a flower pot. I really want to get one myself!
This book is amazing, It’s a contemporary story about a boy and a girl who fall in love. That’s all you need to know.
I haven’t tried these crystal rollers myself but they are supposed to be very good. This is an anti-ageing beauty tool that’s been used in China for centuries in case you’re wondering.
I’m proud to say this brand is Portuguese. Not only the branding and concept is super original but also the supplements do wonders.
This collection is incredible. William Eggleston is one of the most influential photographers of the last 100 years.
Harry Potter is such a cultural reference in my generation, I know a lot of men that would love this gift, Martin included.
Picture House Cinemas are some of the best in London. Gift him with a membership or a gift card to this cinema.
