10 must-have gifts for health-conscious people

I think you’ve gathered by the number of green smoothies I regularly post on Instagram and the lifestyle changes I made these last few months (like giving up Coke Zero), that health & well-being is a pretty big interest of mine so I’ve put together these 10 must-have gifts for health conscious people, bearing in mind what really worked for me and other things that I would like. 1. First and foremost, the Nutribullet ( also available from John Lewis) which is SO easy to use. There is heaps of information online but the big thing for me is that it’s powerful and super easy to clean. You just need to rinse off the plastic jar and that’s it. They seem to have sold in a lots of shops except at Selfridges where they have the Pro 900 series (I have the model below from John Lewis at £99 and I’m happy with it). 2.

Yesterday was errand day. I bought a pair of black sequin ankle boots (similar to these) and this nice mohair grey cardigan to wear with boyfriend jeans, some mistletoe and a gorgeous wreath from my local florist (try to shop indie & local whenever you can, I’ve tagged some of my favourite indie shops on Instagram here).

The best fashion & design gifts for him

Men aren’t always easy to buy for…If they want something, they get it without waiting for Christmas or they want something that won’t be released until next year like the Apple watch! However, I love shopping for guys and finding something that they didn’t think they need, or will make them looking damn good so here is my selection of design & fashion Christmas gifts for him. Enjoy!
