Christmas gift guide 2018

BUY | Neom Organics Precious Moment one-wick candle (£32)

We’re massive fans of Neom Organics at SWD, so we were excited to hear about the new Christmas candle, Precious Moment. It smells divine, and would be the perfect candle to scent a winter wedding morning.


BUY | Boux Avenue cami and shorts set (£30) 

A gorgeous silky set that the bride-to-be can wear on her wedding morning (or night!), this set won’t break the bank.


BUY | Last Christmas as a Miss sweater (£29)

Forget the usual Christmas jumper; this one is perfect for a soon-to-be Mrs! Available in black, grey and this gorgeous berry colour.


BUY | Personalised bride teacup and saucer (£16)

This teacup is so adorable, and a lovely keepsake for the bride to use on her wedding morning (and every morning thereafter, obviously!)


BUY | Normal People by Sally Rooney (£12.99)

Editor Natasha says: Sally Rooney’s Normal People is the best book I’ve read this year (and was just named Waterstones Book of the Year).




BUY | Jo Malone Huntsman collection Whisky & Cedarwood cologne (£120)

Editor Natasha says: Jo Malone’s Huntsman collection is a new range specifically for men. My boyfriend wears the Whisky & Cedarwood cologne and is complimented on it every time we go out.


BUY | Clinique Great Skin for Him gift set (£40)

His skincare regime starts when yours does, so make it easy with this cover-all gift set from Clinique, which comes with a handy wash bag.


BUY | Jack Daniel’s single barrel select – engraved (from £50)

Engrave this suave-looking bottle of JD for your groom-to-be. If not for Christmas, it’s a great idea as a wedding morning gift for his hip flask.



BUY | Aramis Classic gift set (£24.50)

This classic cologne gift set is the lowest price it’s ever been, so get in there quick. Your dad will love this scent!


BUY | Whisky Snippers wood chips (£12.50)

This cool gift means that your dad can infuse his own whisky with these real whisky barrel chips in time for your wedding day!


BUY | Personalised signature handwriting bangle (£85)

Expect a few tears when you give your dad this sterling silver bracelet, which can be inscribed with your own handwriting. So sweet and special.


BUY | Hotel Chocolat Beer and Chocolate Hamper (£27.50)

Beer brewed with cocoa pulp, paired with delicious chocolate. What’s not to love?



BUY | Mac Shiny Pretty Things Lip Kit (£65)

For the lipstick lover in your life, Mac’s Shiny Pretty Things Lip Kit is a dream. It’s the kind of set you’d never buy for yourself but would love to receive as a gift.


BUY | Devine Bride Glasgow-themed tote bag (£14)

Scottish wedding co-ordinator (and former SWD blogger) Devine Bride has just designed the cutest range of tote bags.

The Glasgow one is our fave and ideal for bridesmaids considering wedding fair season is around the corner.

Take note! This luxury foil-printed notebook is perfect for jotting down appointments and wedding fairs… oh, and hen do ideas!


BUY | Neom Organics Perfect Peace Christmas three-wick Christmas candle (£45)

We look forward to receiving Molton Brown shower gels every year – how cute is this Icons cracker, filled with four of the brand’s best-sellers?


BUY | Eden Mill Candy Cane Christmas gin (£32.50)

We’re kind of obsessed with Eden Mill, and this festive Candy Cane Christmas gin is ticking all of our boxes. Your mum will love a tipple or two on Christmas day.
