Day 8 of Blogmas and today it’s my Blogger’s Gift Guide. Prior to starting my blog, I genuinely wouldn’t have had a clue what to buy as a gift for a friend or family member who blogged, so I have aimed my gift ideas at those who may be facing a similar struggle. – I hope they help!
Melita Latham London Notebook (large) £21
Melita Latham is a Brighton based, multi-talented entrepreneur and Blogger who has created a range of luxury products designed to complement the uniqueness we all harbour. The range includes travel bags and accessories alongside these fabulous notebooks. As any blogger will tell you there is no such thing as too many notebooks and these ones from Melita Latham London certainly stand out from the crowd thanks to their simple stylish design.
They are available in several colours however; my favourite is this Aquamarine. They exude luxury and would make a stunning gift for any Blogger or stationery lover this Christmas.
Cinematic A4 Colour Changing Lightbox £19.99
Not only do these letter light boxes look super cute in your home, but they make the perfect Blogging photo prop. This one has an added edge as it changes colour, ideal for use in different styles of photos. It comes with a remote control which allows you to switch between its 12 different colours as well as 4 different light patterns depending on your mood. Also, being A4 it’s a decent size too.
Not only will this enhance any Blogging photos it’s also a great addition to any home.
I don’t know about other Blogger’s, but personally I’m never too far away from a cuppa at anytime of the day, especially when Blogging. This cute Little Miss Mug is perfect for all those cups of tea needed to get through the day. I’m also a believer that you can NEVER have too many mugs, something I’m sure my kitchen cupboards can vouch for!
Any Blogger will tell you how important photos are and getting the right lighting is imperative – not always easy especially in the Winter months. These little home light boxes offer a fantastic alternative for when natural lighting isn’t always possible. This model comes with two back drops and can fold easily for storage or travel. Its small size makes it perfect for photographing small items like make-up and jewellery and would make a great gift idea for any budding Blogger.
Old English Co Planner – Consider This Day Conquered £11.95
Every Blogger needs a planner and this one is not only gorgeous with it’s gold motivational lettering, but practical too. It’s A5 in size and has a day per page with plenty of space for everything you need to jot down and remember. It’s not dated so can be started at any point in the year, giving plenty of flexibility. I personally have this planner and find it ideal for my needs as well as hard-wearing to boot.
Old English Co have a range of planners with various cover designs all with the same format inside, so there’s bound to be something to suit every taste.
Capture By Lucy Photography Backdrops From £29.95
All Bloggers strive to take the best possible photographs to accompany their posts and the background is vital for the overall look. There are so many things that can be used as a backdrop, not always successful in my case, however Capture By Lucy offers the perfect solution. They offer a vast range of digitally printed vinyl backgrounds all hand produced here in the UK starting at only £29.95 for one measuring 2ft by 3ft.
Lucy’s backdrops have been used by Cosmopolitan, Good Housekeeping and Good Food to name but a few, which is testament to their quality. I’d personally love to receive one of these beautifully made backdrops as a gift, it would be so useful for my blogging photos, so if you have a Blogger on your shopping list it’s definitely a gift to consider.
Like the letter light boxes, peg boards are also a popular choice of prop for Blogging photos and would be a fabulous gift idea. This one comes with its own stand and measures 12 inches square. Its natural stylish look means it lends itself to any background or interior. You can personalise a message using the 170 letters and numbers included which even have their very own pouch for storage.
Handmade Personalised Pen £3.50
Like notebooks, Bloggers can NEVER have too many pens, especially when they always seem to go walkabout – I blame my kids! The Twig Pen People are a local Cumbrian small business that I recently discovered and just had to share. They recycle twigs and hand craft them into beautiful unique pens that can be personalised with any name or business. I adore the one I purchased, it’s excellent quality, completely unique and best of all from a wonderful local small business. The perfect gift idea for Christmas and a bargain price too!
