#ChristmasGiftIdeas | Send Your Loved Ones A Bundle Of* Happiness this Christmas

I've been really getting into Christmas Shopping this year - I guess any excuse to spend money and I'm there with [jingle] bells on! In my quest to find the perfect gifts for my loved ones, I've stumbled across many amazing, independent businesses and sellers; whose passion and dedication shines through everything they create. Which obv, I want to share with you guys. Credit where credit's due, and all that.

I'm aaaaaall about shopping with indie / small businesses during the festive season [and, truth be told, with little known companies through most of the year] for truly thoughtful, unique gifts that noone else will have thought of. As well as the good feeling I get knowing that I'm helping someone, somewhere, build their dreams. 

This amazing package from A Bundle Of encompasses all of these qualities in a little bag, tied with a bow. Since this parcel of loveliness landed on my doorstep, my room has smelt like a little slice of heaven. It smells literally unreal; like I've stepped into an alternate universe, where I can't smell the man who lives above me & his ten thousand ciggys an hour... it's like a mix of Lush, all the fruitiest Yankee Candles in the world and sweets. 

So if you're still a bit stuck for ideas on what to get the ladies in your life this Christmas, sit back and relax. A Bundle Of have got your back - with natural, vegan, handmade pampering products which are 100% cruelty free. And which of course, smell and feel absolutely incredible.

A Bundle Of pride themselves on offering personal and thoughtful gifts. When it comes to Christmas Shopping, we all want to give our loved ones a gift that’s unique, personal and not found in bulk on the high street. A grand gesture isn't so grand when you can see your gift in every other shop, after all. Or when it comes in the form of a Selection Box.

Everything A Bundle Of sell is truly unique; allowing your choice of gift to come alive - chosen and created by you. Many of the gifts along their virtual shelves are handmade; including their luxurious bath bombs, irresistible candle tins and delicious chocolate shards - and because they're hand made, no two are completely the same.

I love the fact that you can use their website to create your own gift, to make it as personal as possible. Alternatively though, if you're stuck for time or a bit indecisive [like me] you can opt for one of their hand picked selections and add additional items & finishing touches from there, to make it personal.

A Bundle Of very kindly put together this gorgeous personalised bundle for me; one of their Bath & Body Gift Bundles, sealed with a bow and a personalised tag wishing me a Happy Christmas. Little finishing touches like this really add to the overall gift experience. 

You can buy each of the products I'm about to show you separately on A Bundle Of's online store, select a pre-assembled pamper bundle or create your own, too. You can personalise each and every bundle with your choice of gift packaging and by adding a personal message to the gift tag. Or if you love the look of the brand as much as I do, you can subscribe to their monthly Pamper Box service; which looks dreamy. But for now, let's have a spy on what was inside my personalised #BloggerMail this month.

Sweet Cherry Luxury Body Wash*, £4.50


Omg this smells good. Like black cherry; which is one of my all time fave Autumnal scents. A little really goes a long way when you apply it - and you can also use it as a mild shampoo, which I love. Always after value for money when it comes to beauty products, me - and this beautiful shower gel definitely delivers. 

This luxury fruity body wash has been fragranced with the delightful aromas of sweet cherries and is enriched with pure cherry kernel oil; which will leave your skin feeling on point. It's handmade using the finest natural ingredients - which means that it's SLS and paraben free and ideal for those with sensitive skin.

Marrakesh Express Bath Bomb Fizzer*, £3.50

If you're into your Lush and Bath Bombs, stop what you're doing RIGHT NOW and head to A Bundle Of's website. Their range of Bath Bomb Fizzers and Creamers is unreal AND they also have a super cute Bath Bomb Cupcake range; which I can't cope with. As well as being natural, handmade and looking good enough to eat, these super cheap pampering products are ideal to wrap as stocking stuffers this Christmas - everyone loves a good bath bomb.

This particular one is the Marrakesh Express Bath Bomb Fizzer and it smells amazing. And look how pretty it is - I posted a photo of it on Instagram recently and some of you thought it was a pretty little cake; it's that stunning it looks good enough to eat!! I can't wait to use this - I've been holding on so I can photograph it and sniff it for this review, but I can't cope much longer.

This luxurious handmade bath bomb is filled with bath creamer to nourish the skin and topped with pink peppercorns. It'll release the fragrance of rose, patchouli and mixed spice when added to a bath [and even before then, too!] It comes in an individual presentation box, which adds a touch of class and makes it a lovely gift.

Grapefruit & Orange Face Mask*, £5.50

This face mask smells great [with like, a faint aroma of my fav snack - Chocolate Orange], is a lovely thick & fluffy consistency and comes in a decent sized pot; so it'll last for aaaaaages. If you follow me on Snapchat [or any other social media accounts] you'll know I spend more time in the bath than anywhere else [who needs a social life lol] so it's perfect for me. Life goals = get home from work, get in the tub, facemask on and relax. I'm very much guilty of overworking myself and not taking enough time to indulge in proper self care, so this a nice little reminder to do so.

This Grapefruit and Orange Face Mask is handmade using kaolin clay and includes orange and grapefruit essential oils. Together with the kaolin clay, it'll deeply cleanse, tone and help to balance the oils in your skin. It will brighten up tired and undernourished skin making it perfect for those with a hectic lifestyle. Me in a nutshell, like.

Black Date and Raspberry Scented Candle Tin*, £4.20


This candle smells absolutely incredible. So fresh, so fruity and for me personally, so nostalgic. Its fragrance throws me back to memories and nostalgia of Christmases past, and I can't get enough. I love its minimal design - this is 100% going in the new workspace area I'm planning. It has a burn time of over 14 hours too, which makes it pretty amazing value.

The candle's rich fruity fragrances of raspberry, date, fig and raisin combined with uplifting fragrances of cedar and musk on a smooth vanilla base will provide a wonderful relaxing atmosphere in your home.

Each candle has been hand poured in the UK using traditional methods, which means each scented candle tin is as special as the last, whilst also providing you with an artisan product at an affordable price.

Berry Sorbet Lip Balm*, £3.95

There's a general theme here - everything in my Bundle Of Happiness smells literally unreal. And this lip balm is no exception. It's possibly my favourite fragrance of all the products I've been sent - but it's a very close call to make. Its formula melts onto your lips when applied and instantly soothes chapped / dry skin. Plus it's suitable for even the most sensitive skin, as it's paraben free.

The lip balm is handmade in the UK with all natural ingredients including organic beeswax, avocado oil and nourishing butters. Banish dry lips and enjoy the sweet fruity flavourings of blackcurrant, strawberry, raspberry, grape and plum; that are further enriched with a smooth vanilla base.


I'm so, so impressed with my first ever A Bundle Of experience. Their natural, beautiful products and gift bundles are the perfect Christmas gift contenders for 2016 - as well as being spot on for birthdays, Valentine's Day, Mothering Sunday, anniversaries, Easter gifts etc etc... 

How's your Christmas Shopping going? What's your favourite item on A Bundle Of's online store - have you shopped with them before?
