All I want for Christmas: A Gift Guide for Her

This post is sponsored 

I’m writing this blog post on a Sunday afternoon; I’ve just had a massive roast dinner, Toy Story is on TV and best of all, it’s snowing outside. Sitting here with my Christmas tree lights on, candles burning and a cup of tea is making me feel all kinds of Christmassy so I thought it only appropriate to share my first festive post of the year.
