Women’s Christmas Gift Guide and GIVEAWAY | AD

lolita unicorn glass

Christmas is here again and with a bit of a shaky 2021, I personally am hoping for a good one. I love sharing gift ideas for the family and this one highlights some gifts for women. I always make sure what I feature is something I, a family member or friend would love, so can always give a genuine recommendation.

There is also a giveaway with the lovely Love Leggings at the end, so check that out too.

So without further ado, here are some of the featured products.

6) Leggings and Cycling Shorts from Love Leggings

I’m a huge fan of Love Leggings and have worked with them on previous gift guides. Their leggings were amazing during the last couple of years, with lockdowns and a lot of time at home! I remember living in a pair last winter; they are just so comfy!

Love Leggings stock a huge range of quality leggings for general wear, maternity, being active, for tall, petit people and even children. I have bought a couple of pairs over the years, as well as showcasing on my gift guides.

    It looks like working from home is here to stay. Originally when we were sent home from the office we all said see you in a couple of weeks, then I thought we’d be back there in June 2020, then November 2020, then September 2021 and here we are. Not that I’m complaining though and our Team do more working from home than we did in the office; we can offer additional support that we couldn’t when we were office based.

    This therefore would be ideal for me; I live in leggings but I find that poor quality leggings aren’t the way to go, quality over quantity, these would be perfect 🙂
