His & Hers Christmas Gift Guide

As I write this blog post there are only about 6 weeks left until Christmas which means now is the time for getting your shopping done and buying all your gifts! Unless of course you are one of those who enjoys the pressure and stress of a last minute dash around the shops on Christmas Eve!? 

I do admit that I may be slightly over organised but as December is always such a busy month I personally prefer to get all my shopping completed so I can sit back and relax a bit in the lead up to the big day.

Over the past couple of weeks I have been scouring the web and the shops to bring you all a selection of my favourite Christmas gift ideas for both him and her. And of course all of these items are both cruelty free and vegan friendly making them the perfect ethical choice to show someone in your life how much they mean to you!


I love the simple design of this cardholder and it makes a nice change to see different coloured wallets for men that aren't always black and brown. I'm sure this leather look cardholder would be a sure hit with the man in your life!  

The Thug Kitchen cookbook is definitely one to appeal to both men and women as the plant based recipes inside all look incredibly delicious and fuss free. If your man enjoys being creative in the kitchen then this is the book for him! 

I absolutely love the sleek and contemporary design of this watch. By purchasing a watch from Votch you will also be helping animals in need as they kindly donate 10% of their profits to their chosen charity of the month. 

What could be better this Winter than having your very own stylish reusable cup to enjoy your hot drinks from!? Not only will it help to warm your hands up but you'll also be helping the environment by not using disposable cups. Every little helps! 

Every man needs a little pampering in his life and multi award winning Bull Dog are the perfect choice for affordable male grooming products. 

Help your man to get motivated for a new year and achieve his dreams with this sleek bucket list journal by one of my favourite stationers Kikki K. 

This fancy flask boasts being able to keep your cold drinks cold for 25 hours and your hot drinks hot for 12 hours. No freezing required and also no annoying bottle sweating. 

One of my husbands personal favourites, this exfoliating and soothing bar of soap works amazingly well at removing ingrained dirt. Perfect for those grease monkeys who love to tinker with bikes and cars. 

If, like me, you're tired of the man in your life losing your hand and toenail clippers then this is the gift to get them this Christmas! They can even clip these onto their keyring so now there really is no excuse to use (and lose) yours. 


Rose gold and copper are still the most lust worthy colours of 2016 and this unique clutch / cross body bag is a must have for the party season! 

Have you ever seen a watch as pretty as this!? The oversized rose gold dial and nude faux leather strap just scream timeless elegance. This one's on my own Christmas list!   

Feel all festive, cosy and 'hygge' with this set of Christmas soy wax candles by Só Soy. Scents include 'mandarin, nutmeg & cinnamon',  'bergamot, red cedar & amber' and 'cranberry, green leaf & musk.' 

I've already ordered mine and I can assure you that no one would be disappointed to find a Happiness Planner in their stocking. It's the ultimate girly planner for helping you to achieve your goals, dreams and, importantly, happiness! Start 2017 off on the right note with this planner, it's a must have. 

If you're finding it difficult buying for the passionate vegan woman in your life i'm pretty sure you can't go wrong with this beautiful ring. Ethically made in India, it will help to spread awareness in a discreet and meaningful way. 

Everyone I know wants a backpack this year and if you want to buy one which evokes style over an "i'm off to the gym" look then this is the bag for you! 

Monogrammed products are huge this year, you can literally get your initial on everything and anything from mugs to stockings and christmas baubles. Stand out from the crowd and surprise your loved one with an elegant Anthropologie initial necklace. 

Quite possibly my favourite product of 2016, this personalised cruelty free makeup bag is absolutely perfect for anyone who is against animal testing.  

Are you noticing a theme yet with all the rose gold!? These makeup brushes have been on my personal wish list for quite a while now, they're just so pretty and completely animal friendly!  

Kat Von D's makeup line launching in the UK was big news in 2016 and it was so great to hear that her line is cruelty free and mostly vegan friendly. Every girl loves a bright red lipstick for Christmas and you really can't go wrong with this one. Look at that packaging though!

These personalised body butters from The Body Shop are just so cute! You just can't beat a personalised present, especially when it's on an old favourite product like this. But be aware - you can only pick these beauties up at selected Body Shop stores. 

I hope you've found this gift guide useful and it's given you some inspiration!? 

I guess all that's left now is to get shopping! 

What gifts will you be buying your loved ones this year? 



  1. I really, really want some of the body shop's Christmas range. I'm hoping I can get some as presents this year. 💜💫✨

  2. This is a really creative guide with a lot of stuff I wouldn't have thought of, great selection! I love the idea of getting a cardholder for men as well.

  3. I want every single thing on this list! I recently got some Will's Vegan Shoes and my word I absolutely love them. I'd also really love a Votch watch, too! Great choices- might be dropping a few hints for some of these ;)
