Ginger Mum Column: Top shopping tips for Xmas lists

Our resident lifestyle blogger Amanda, aka Ginger Mum, has got some gift ideas so that you can start your Christmas shopping early.

Tis’ the season to go shopping… and I thought I’d pull together my top picks from the MK area, as I’ve started early this year to avoid my usual last minute panic.

For my mum, it has to be the Dyson hairdryer. She has lusted after one for ages and she definitely deserves a treat. I love mine, so I know how good it is.

I got one for her from Boots as they have the best deals and I get my points so it’s a win-win. For teens and anyone at all actually, the now insta famous hoodies from Neon Marl are must haves!

If you don’t know the story, Chris Evans randomly shouted this independent brand out live on air and Amber, the brand’s founder gained thousands of followers and her business boomed.

As a result, her gorgeous hoodies are now a cult buy. If you know someone who suffers from migraines, insomnia or stress: these little beauties will help them relax and float into dreamland before they know it!

Spacemasks are the most effective, coolest and cheapest way to solve sleep problems! A box of five spacemasks are only £15, which makes perfect sense because you won’t want to use them the once!

They also have the new rose scented version which donates £1 for every box sold to the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. We update our Christmas decs every year, with a new little touch here and there and these stickers from Nutmeg Wall Art are an integral part of that.

The boys love their peeping reindeers and I love the classy tree. Best of all, they peel away perfectly after the festive season.

Hope these suggestions have been useful, my full gift guide will be out this month on the blog so please do check it out! See you in December for lots of sparkly chat!
