The Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide & Giveaway!

It’s December! We’ve made it! In 10 days I’ll be jetting off for a hot Christmas in Cambodia, and I can hardly wait. Christmas is my favourite holiday by far – food, gifts, family – what more could you want?

Highgrove Christmas DecorationThere’s a part of me that’s going to miss the fires and the lovely mulled wine – but I’m even more excited to spend Christmas with my family! I’ll also be flying from Cambodia to Tokyo to visit my Japanese family on the 27th, so I’ll be away from London for quite some time.

My favourite part of Christmas is gift giving. I absolutely love the feeling you get when you have bought something absolutely perfect for someone – I just can’t wait for them to open it!

Highgrove Christmas DecorationI like to think that for most of the people in my life, I’ve sussed out what they like (or at least I hope so). I’ve recently gotten more into getting experiences, or days out as gifts – a couple of years ago I got my boyfriend dinner at Dans Le Noir for his birthday, and last year for Christmas he got me some amazing classes at Leith’s, which I absolutely loved. Experiences are great, especially if you have a tiny flat like me – and I think they are perfect for the people in your life that are impossible to shop for!

When Red Letter Days got in touch to share their Christmas Quiz I was really excited, as it’s such a great fit! This interactive quiz is a great way to figure out what experience you should get someone. I tried it out with my boyfriend in mind, and they recommended a Craft Beer Tour – which actually sounds right up his street!

You can try the quiz out for yourself, and see what they’d recommend as a gift. I also tried the quiz out with my dad in mind – and they suggested that he’d like a luncheon with Prime Minister Winston Churchill at The Savoy, which seems pretty accurate. Unfortunately it’s not something you can get through Red Letter Days, but you can get a 3-course lunch at Gordon Ramsay’s Restaurant at the Savoy. Handy!

You can try the quiz out for yourself – make sure you let me know what they recommend!

As a massive thank you for being amazing subscribers, I wanted to give away a 7-course Tapas meal with cocktails for two at the H10 London Waterloo Hotel. Just check out the view!*

London H10 Waterloo HotelDon’t worry if you don’t fancy facing the chill on the rooftop bar, as the experience is valid until the 6th of November next year. I’d personally save it for the summer, and have tapas, wine and cocktails with a view of Battersea Power Station, The Shard, London Eye and BT Tower. Perfect!

Highgrove Christmas DecorationAll you have to do is fill out the Rafflecopter and take the quiz! Simple. Once the competition is over, I’ll send over the voucher in an email – the competition will be running until the 15th of December, which might make it the perfect Christmas present for the impossible person to buy for in your life.
