Christmas is round the corner everyone! This is normally the time where I start panicking about presents I haven't bought yet so I imagine there will be a few of you doing the same. It happens every year, as much as I think I'm organised there's always some left to get. 
Well have no fear! Since my frantic searching over the last few days I've put some links together for you of all the last minute gifts that I've managed to pick up. 

I've organised it in categories of price so it will cover all different type of gifts, so for those who have forgotten to pick up their Secret Santa gift do not worry. I've got you! 


Shop Gifts Under £10 here

Fortnum and Mason -  I love this little bottle stop! It's so cute! With the iconic Fortnums logo and colour blue it's instantly recognisable - here

George and Viv Holiday bar soap - I saw this and thought it was so sweet! I love the little car one but they actually do a variety - all Christmas themed. You could get a couple and put them all in stockings for the family - here

Monogram Stocking Mug - You can't really go wrong with a mug for Secret Santa and I spotted this one on Anthropologie which I love! It's monogrammed so it can be a little bit more personal plus it looks the perfect size for a hot chocolate so you could easily add a little satchet in there too as a little extra - here

Lily Flame Christmas Spice Candle - LOVE a christmas candle! Lily Flame do really nice scents - I actually love their Fairy Dust candle, but every year they bring this out and it smells heavenly. Cinnamony, Clovey, Citrusy. YUM - here - Okay Yankee Candle is not my personal favourite BUT I know lots of people love them and you can get them online for £8 here 

Montezuma Giant Chocolate Buttons - The best buttons of all time! These are so so good and honestly if I found these in my stocking - CHRISTMAS MADE. Can't even tell you how good they are. They also come in dark and white - here

Tap for Tea Bell - If you know someone who's obsessed with tea then this is the present for them... As long as you don't mind then ringing the bell all the time - here - you can get a gift set here too

BullDog Mens shave gel - If you've got a man for Secret Santa then this could be a good shout! BullDog products come in at such a good price point, but they're quality is really good - here

ThisWorks Dream Team Bauble - Little baubles are such a good stocking stuffer or Secret Santa gift. ThisWorks sleep range is one of my favourites and I spotted this little bauble so I picked up a few to gift to friends - here

BodyShop Avocado Hands & Lips Cracker - Another great little bauble idea! A really safe gift option for someone is hand cream or lip balm and this combines both. It includes Avocado which is super soothing so nothing too heavy also - here

Shop Gifts Under £20 here 

Bisto Tile Monogram Glass - I love this range from Anthropologie and I know so many other people do too! I saw they recently released these gorgeous juice glasses in the Bistro range with the the monogram initials on, so cute - here

Ted Baker mens socks - who doesn't love luxury socks? or All Saints socks are even cheaper. 

Clinique gift set - They're currently on sale, you cannot go wrong with their hydrating skincare products.

Le Creuset Heat Mat - When I got my new kitchen installed, I was recommended to use heat mats just as a caution and now I always gift them to people! They're such a good idea, especially if you're hosting a dinner party and needing to put roasting trays on your table - here

Aveda hair gift set - I LOVE this strengthening hair range, great for travels too 

One Line a Day journal - I have one of these and I love it so much! I've tried keeping diaries in the past but have also failed miserably. At least with this because it prompts you to only write a small amount it means that I can concentrate on something specific. It's been so fun to look back over the last year to see everything that was happening the year before - here

What Do You Meme card game - I love playing games at Christmas! It's so so fun and I recently played this at a friends house - it had me in stitches! It's one the whole family can get involved in and it really can be so funny - here 

The White Company Heart Ramekin - Love The White Company for gifts and especially love these little heart ramekins. They could be used for your breakfast oats, little serving dishes, sauce holders... lots of options. They come in two different sizes so you could grab both if you wanted - here

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian BumBum Cream - THE BEST smelling body butter EVER! If you have somebody close to you who loves all things wellness then this is a really great option - here

Dr Dennis Gross Exfoliating Pads - Like the Sol de Janeiro cream above, these exfoliating pads are a cult classic for a reason. I've just finished listening to a podcast on Dr Dennis Gross and he himself is so influential, it's made me want to try so many more of his products. However I can claim that these are just wonderful and make skin so smooth and glowy! Here

Harrods Hot Chocolate - A luxury hot chocolate is the perfect gift over those wintery months! I personally loved Harrods, it's my all time favourite and the tin is obviously reusable so you could continue using it to stock hot chocolate/coffee/tea. Maybe add in some mini marshamallows or candy canes too - here

Neom Christmas Candle -  The Neom Christmas candles are sensational and this one is £15

Shop Gifts under £50 here

Liberty Stocking and yummy treats - Got any Vegan family & friends? Then this is the one for you! A lovely selection of vegan treats and it all comes packaged in a beautiful liberty stocking! Festive and delicious - here

Charlotte Tilbury Eyes Gift Set - Such a Charlotte Tilbury fan and over Christmas is the best time to pick up some gift sets. Every year she releases such great ones and this would be a lovely treat for someone to receive - it's got all you need in there. Here

Personalised Mens Washbag - I know I've mentioned this before on my Christmas Gift List for Men which if you haven't seen please make sure to check it out for lots more inspiration! But I just want to mention it again as it's been so popular over there - here

The White Company 'Celebrate' Serving Plate - I really want this for myself! A gorgeous, classic design and perfect for anyone who is hosting over Christmas - here

Pasta Maker & Toastie Maker - I find these sort of appliances a really great gift to give! A pasta maker is so fun, especially if you know a family who have children. A great way to spend the afternoon keeping them busy! Also you can't go wrong with a toastie maker either - I imagine a few people may have a sore head on New Years Day but what could be better than whipping out the toastie maker and serving up some Croque Monsieurs for everyone? Hangover cured! 

Emma Bridgewater Butter Dish - I know so many people who love Emma Bridgewater and a cute little butter dish would be a really sweet gift for someone. This is in their classic 'Black Toast' print so you can't really go wrong - although they do have a selection so if you know someone collects a different print then go for that. Here

Shop Luxury Gifts here

Ruinart Rose Champagne - Anyone got any Boxing Day parties? It's always nice if someone is hosting the day after Christmas, I think, to bring something a little bit extra special. Ruinart is one of my favourite Champagnes - it's not cheap, which is why it ever only comes out at Christmas - here

Elemis Festive Favourites - Gorgeous, luxurious skincare gift set and they've got 25% off at the moment. I love their products, particularly the cleansing balm. 

Le Creuset Fondue Set - Normally in my household there's a fair bit of leftover cheese from Christmas and for years I've wanted a fondue maker so you can just whack it in there and voila! No wastage. Practical and utterly delicious - here

Gucci 'Iventum' Candle - Now there's a candle and then there's a CANDLE. What I love about this, apart from the scent of course, is that once you've burnt it this could easily become a gorgeous ornament for your home. We love a re-usable gift! Here

Saint Laurent Cardholder Womens & Mens - If you know someone who would like to open something very special on Christmas Day, but equally don't want to be spending in the thousands then cardholders are the perfect alternative. I don't try to hide how much I love Saint Laurent, after owning a couple of things myself I can confirm that they are quality wise - fantastic. I've linked both a mens and womens cardholder so please take your pick. 

Always Pan - The pan of dreams {8-in-1!} is on sale, it will make such a useful, forever gift.

Harvey Nichols 'Boxing Day' Hamper - I spotted Harvey Nichols were doing a sale on a selection of their Hampers and so I knew I had to link one in this gift guide. I know there's already a tonne of food at Christmas, but what I liked about this Boxing Day one is that you can prolong your feast with some really lovely, luxurious extra bits on Boxing Day. If you're feeling really generous then you could pair it with the bottle of Ruinart Champagne! Here 

All Saints scarf - stunning duvet like scarf on sale! 

Aspinal 2023 Leather Diary - I think there's something still so special about writing in an actual diary - I have a friend who swears off her phone calendar and exclusively uses a diary. Aspinal do some great options for diaries but I particularly loved this one - here

Flowerbomb perfume - This fragrance is so special to me, every Christmas Mum and I would go shopping and she would secretly add a bottle of it to my bag - just like magic. I have grown up loving this fragrance. 

CurrentBody LED Face mask - This is EVERYWHERE, the best LED face mask on the market and code EMSHEL gets you 20% off! 

Beauty Pie membership - The gift that keeps giving, a Beauty Pie membership with access to luxury beauty and wellbeing gifts all year round. My Beauty Pie promo code EMSENTME saves you money. 

Aspinal Golf Ball Holder - For all those golf partners out there (like me!) then this is the only gift you need to be buying this Christmas. I love Aspinal and everything they do, they have such gorgeous quality leather. When I was linking the '2023 Diary' I also saw they do golf accessories and whew! Let's just say Matt is going to be a very happy boy. They also offer Golf Tee Holders and a Scorecard Holder. Grab all three or just the one - either way I know that golfer is going to love them. 


That is a wrap! (Yes that is an intentional pun). I really really hope this helps whoever is struggling out there with last minute gifts - those are always the worst! 
I can't believe how quickly Christmas has come round this year, we are less than a week away! I'll be winding down a bit soon but this week I'll still be posting all the festive content over on @emshelx and @emshelhome so please come and prepare for Christmas Day with me over on those channels. 

Until my next post, wishing you all a wonderful week in the run up to Christmas and lastly don't panic! If anything Christmas is about spending time with your loved ones, so regardless of gifts just enjoy your day eating, laughing and making memories. 

Lots of love, Em x
