So sticking with the Christmas theme here on the blog (sorry not sorry) I thought I would share with you some of the fabulous gifts I found in my local Homesense store. If you’re not familiar with Homesense then you need to basically find your nearest one and go there right now because OMG its the best place ever! Imagine a store full of home furnishings, candles, wall art, kitchen gadgets, beauty bargains and fabulous books at hugely discounted prices – it’s a blogger’s dream!
If you thought that was good, then Christmas time at Homesense is even better! Not only is there every kind of Christmas decoration you could ever wish for (more on that in another post coming soon!) but they are also like Aladdin’s cave when it comes to gifts. I picked up some treats that all come in way under £10 each, and make perfect Christmas pressies for even the toughest to buy for.
For the sweet tooth, I found a gorgeous little box of Sea Salted Caramel Drinkable Fudge (how amazing does that sound?!) at £4.99 and some super fancy chocolate bars at £1.49 each that would make the perfect stocking fillers. The packaging on all of these looks so premium, yet they were all really affordable!
For the cocktail lover (hint hint, me) there was a huge selection of glasses, shakers and recipe kits, but the thing that caught my eye the most was a set of flavoured syrups and rimming salts and sugars for just £5.99. This makes such a great gift as again, the packaging and the products themselves look so much more expensive than they cost and who doesn’t love a fruity syrup to add to their cocktail at Christmas!?
I also found a gorgeous book titled ‘The Art Of Mixology’ which is supposed to retail at around £14.00, but at Homesense it cost a tiny £4.99! It has such a lovely cover which would look amazing on any coffee table or drinks trolley, and the cocktails inside sound incredible.
Finally, for the stationery freak (also me), Homesense have a huge (and I mean huge) stationery selection with the BEST notebooks on the high street. I could have gone a bit crazy and picked up a tonne of different ones but restrained myself and settled on one of my favourites, a chic dark marble hardback notebook with rose gold foil detailing for £4.99.
I’m definitely going to be heading back to Homesense for a couple more Christmas shopping trips in the coming weeks and see what other fabulous gifts I can track down!
