    1. This hot gin and tonic set to gift to your gin-loving friend who's tried it all.

    sipsmith.com

    Hot gin and tonic sounds weird but is so brilliant. It's actually not a completely new invention – back in ye olde London, people would drink hot gin to keep warm. It'll make a beautiful Christmas drink to sip on with family, or if you're looking for something unusual to wow a friend with, this is your guy. It looks to be selling out soon, so if you want it, get it quickly!

    10. A pack of gin baubles to decorate your tree with or gift to friends.

Better, still the fragrances in this are unisex (blackberry & bay cologne, basil & neroli body and hand wash and English pear and freesia body crème), meaning you can give it to both guys and girls.

    If you don't want to guess what shades will suit your beauty loving friend, this is the lip paint for you. Its USP is that it's a matte liquid lip that will suit literally every skintone (click here to see it in action). And it's from Fenty Beauty, THE hottest makeup launch of the year. Perfect, no?

    Get it from Harvey Nichols, 19.99, or in the US for $26.15.

    15. A boozy advent calendar to count down the days to Christmas in style.

    masterofmalt.com

    Is this advent calendar very expensive? Yes, yes it is. Is it kind of worth it? Begrudgingly, yes. I'm a massive gin fan, and getting to try a different little bottle every day is excellent. And it's all truly brilliant gin that's been curated in here. The calendars tend to sell out pretty quickly, so best to get yours now. FYI if gin isn't your thing, there's also whisky ones, vodka ones, bourbon ones...etc.

    Or, for a cheaper alternative, this Christmas craft beer calender is £60.

    Get it from Master of Malt, £99.95, or in the US for $133.18.

    16. An instant camera because it's the gift that literally everyone will love.

    Get it at Amazon, £59.99, or in the US for $54.50+.

    17. A cosy scarf to gift to your friend who's always cold.

    amazon.co.uk

    Comes in a bunch of different colours and styles and is so warm.

    Get it from Amazon, £9.99, or in the US for $14.99+.

    18. This surprisingly affordable fragrance set that will look good under any Christmas tree.

    shayandblue.com

    Shay and Blue have been my littler perfume secret for years – they're a super lovely boutique fragrance brand that crafts all their perfumes in the UK. They're SO pretty, smell incredible and are a hefty amount cheaper than a lot of other perfume brands out there. This generously sized set has their English Cherry Blossom and Blood Orange fragrances, but definitely check out their other scents. Salt Caramel is my favourite.

    Get it from Shay and Blue, £45, or in the US for $73.64.

    19. A gorgeously bound box set of Jane Austen's books for the book lover in your life.

    agreatread.co.uk

    If you have a friend or family member who loves literature, this is the essential set. It's so, SO pretty, and even better is currently 50% off (it usually costs 100 quid).

    Get it at A Great Read, £47.97, or in the US for $58.67.

    Or, if you'd like a cheaper alternative, this set is £25.35 and is super cute too.
