Wednesday Wants: A Mini Daisybutter Gift Guide1.12.10

I haven't been "familiar" with Yankee candles for a long time, but my flatmate has a couple in her bedroom, that she always burns, and I have only heard good things about them, other than the price. Personally, I think the prices are reasonable for the quality and scent that you get for a Yankee candle! I heard about the Christmas range of candles on Emma's blog, so popped down to my local Yankee candle stockist, and was pleasantly surprised by a 25% discount offer on the Christmas Cookie candle! I think these would be perfect gifts for your Mum, Auntie, or even your best friend.
Now I don't know about your mumabears, but my Mumma works six 10am-Midnight days a week, so Christmas is her one, complete relaxation period of the year! Boots' Soap & Glory ranges never fail to please, and this year there is a huge selection to choose from, coming in at a range of prices that won't break the bank, or that you can splurge on to pamper a parent! If for some maaad reason your mumabear doesn't like the retro packaging and sweet scents of Soap & Glory, I also adore Boots' Sanctuary Spa range and would really recommend their Pamper Heaven Collection.
If my followers and readers are anything as money-lacking as me, I am sure you'll be stuck for ideas of presents for your best friend. I am a firm believer that presents shouldn't be about monetal value, but about sentimental value with friends. I am probably going to be buying a selection of these adorable friendship bracelets for my best friends this year: Rock N Rose stock a huge selection of these, in different charms, which are sure to evoke particular memories with your friends. I also like these ones at Dolly Bow Bow!
Got a techy nerd pal? ;) My Uncle has one of these sound sensor T-shirts, and they are the funniest thing ever, as well a er, "great" conversation starter. They are sound activated, and the graphic is made up of lights that change with loud sounds! Highly amusing, trust me! I always struggle with gifts for guys, but I honestly like the idea of a jacket as a present. Especially these Varsity jackets, I love them on a guy!
Finally, I thought I would mix up my Wednesday Wants a little by throwing a book into the action! Cupcakes are now the food of the generation and blogging population, so what better to purchase for your sister/Mum/baking mad friend than a cupcake recipe book, full of "funny and imaginative ideas" for the kitchen. It's always good to throw a sneaky hint towards having some cupcakes baked for you as well ;)
What are you all buying for your loved ones this Christmas?
