The Birthday Gift Guide

Yesterday, my sister turned 18! Obviously this is a big birthday so I thought I would share what I got her and also a few other bits I would give to friends & family as gifts.
  • Prairie Charms Custom Made Pieces

The lovely ladies at Prairie Charms were the first people I went to when I started gathering my sisters presents. They were so helpful! I told them my sisters favourite colours and her style and they came up with 4 lovely pieces.

These fantastic bangles can be personalised in so many ways. In any lettering, a large selection of symbols and at any place on the bangle too. My sister loved this piece!

  • Throwback to the 90s

I was in Tesco's a few weeks ago in search of some smaller bits to put with her presents and found all these party bag gifts. I replicated a party bag from the 90s with all this useless, but slightly amusing, junk.

  • Throwback to the 00s

To add to the party bag pieces, I got all these chew bars and other sweets which I’m sure were in all the party bags 10 years ago. This also took the total to 18 presents!

Is it just me who absolutely loves wrapping up presents? Making them all pretty with matching paper and ribbon. This wrapping paper from is completely personalised. You can upload up to 30 photos from your laptop, Instagram or Facebook. You can then choose the type of borders you want and the arrangement of the photos. I am so impressed with the outcome of the wrapping paper, the quality and also the service.

Like everything else, notebooks are great presents! I thought my sister would love a Toad Diaries notebook and you can see my previous thoughts on them here. Even though there are plenty of patterned covers, I chose this blue with white stars which is so pretty! “Welcome to New York” also seemed perfect, she loves Taylor Swift and my other sister and I went out to surprise her in New York so it seemed only right.

  • SWIG Hip Flasks*

A fantastic idea with these hip flasks. I chose the Union Jack case and classic silver hip flask and I love the look and quality of it! It’s as classy as a hip flask can get! It is totally an ideal present for anyone, over the age of 18 of course! Plus you can engrave the flask and get different cases too.

I personally love Birthdays and Christmas as I love buying presents for other people and wrapping them up all pretty. Then seeing their faces as they wreck my lovely wrapping and see the gifts I got them. It’s the small pleasures in life!

What is the best birthday gift you have bought for someone?

*This was kindly gifted to me, and as always all thoughts are my own.
