A Cosy Night In With Very

- This is a paid collaboration with -

With Christmas lights beginning to turn on in everyone's houses and the chilly, dark evenings are rolling in, now is the perfect excuse to stay in and get cosy. I love nothing more than relaxing into a bubble bath before getting into a fresh pair of pyjamas especially over the festive season. have a lot of products on offer to achieve the perfect cosy night it, but I like to start with pyjamas. They're great for gifting, but if I bought this Chelsea Peers Button Up Printed Long Set I would have to adopt the "one for them, one for me" rule. These are super soft and snuggly, whilst being the perfect length and fit for the comfiest nightwear. I can feel myself wearing these on Christmas Eve to wrap up presents watching one of my favourite festive films. They are great paired with the Totes Cashmere Bed Socks to ensure that everywhere it feels cosy and comforted. 

With the Christmas lights flickering in the background, I like to pop on a festive film to get me in the mood. It's perfect when paired with a cheese board and a hot chocolate to make me feel ultimately cosy, but it's the pamper routine I do later on in the evening that I enjoy the most.  

In the bath, I like to use luxurious products that help to hydrate and soothe my dehydrated skin. Winter can be rather harsh on my skin, so I like to use moisturising products both in the bath and outside. The Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath and Shower Oil fills the bathroom up with a beautifully relaxing scent and when you step out the bath, slathering the L'Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate all over the body after. 

After pampering myself from head to toe, I've been wearing my Ralph Lauren Red Plaid Set which is probably the most luxurious pyjamas I've ever worn. With the red plaid print, these pjs feel like Christmas summed up. To make it even more festive, I wear these Reindeer Mule Slippers which are easy to slip on and keep my toes toasty.

As I've got older, I definitely appreciate a lifestyle gift at Christmas more than ever. As much as I love receiving beauty gift sets, I've come to enjoy nifty gadgets, presents for the home and food related hampers even more. 

I think this is rather an unpopular take, but I personally love giving people edible gifts especially if they're unsure on what they want for Christmas and I'm uncertain on what to get them. You know that at the end of the day, it's always going to get eaten as long as you consider their dietary requirements. 

If you're looking to support a small business this Christmas then I would recommend checking out The Tartan Blanket Co* as they have a range of scarves and blankets which are perfect for gifting. They can be personalised and with a wide variety of colours to choose from, there's something for everyone.

One of my favourite things about Christmas present buying is getting to look at all of the gift sets on offer and narrow down the ones that I want to put on my own list. With so many brands and products on the market, it can definitely feel overwhelming, but if you're looking to treat someone (or yourself) this festive season, then I've got just the round up for you. 

£25 and Under

Perfume as a Christmas present is always a good shout, but if you're not sure what to get them then I would always recommend getting a smaller bottle so they can test it out. This Ghost Deep Night Gift Set* is great as it offers 30ml of the perfume which is the perfect size for putting in your handbag and it also comes with a bath bomb for an added treat.  

Philosophy have come out with their Christmas shower gel* collection and although they're definitely on the higher side price wise, they certainly feel luxurious and can be paired with some other bath products if you're looking to make a pamper themed gift. 

Under £75

Anything Charlotte Tilbury is always a win for me - they're the definition of luxe makeup and I would be overjoyed to receive any of their products for Christmas. Personally I think the Pillow Talk range (especially the Pillow Talk On The Go Kit) is the perfect present for anyone as it's definitely a cult favourite amongst many for a reason.

I don't often see skincare sets getting gifted, but Origins has some of the best. This Best of Origins Set is great at it offers up a few products for you to try without commiting. I also think the Farmacy Honey Haven Set* is a great pick as you get two full size high quality products. 

£75 and over 

Every budget is different, so if you have extra to spend this year then these are the pieces I'd be looking at. Although rather extravagant, the Maison Margiela fragrances are some of my favourite and the By The Fireplace is currently on my wishlist to go along with the others in my collection. 

Laura Mercer has to be one of my favourite brands to get gifted over Christmas and their bath and body products are just so luxurious. I've been eying up the Indulgence Ambre Vanilla Set as it offers up the honey bath which I adore as well as a bath creme and body spray.
