Askherfriends Blogger Panel: Top Picks In Experiences & Home Made Ideas

How very exciting for me to discover I’d been asked to be part of the Askherfriends bloggers panel with my lovely friends Rachel from LadyM Presents and Becky from Becky Bedbug.  

Over the next few months I’ll be taking part in some top picks challenges on their website, but I’m now going to give a little more detail behind this months; Experiences and Home Made Ideas

I adore gift shopping! Whether it’s birthday, Christmas, Easter, Christening, New job… you name it I’m the queen of indulging in the gift hunt challenge. As you can imagine I was ready for action with my first challenge set by Askherfriends.

This particular mixture I’ve put together (as pictured above), is the ultimate mixture for someone who needs some TLC and generally to feel good about themselves.  The idea behind it is that the person is pampered then can go out after using the items, so start with getting their hair done, wear the necklace and jacket on their night out, use the mirror to check their make up, then after all the cocktails they can have a wonderfully relaxing bath the next day! Bliss!

Number one

The Galactic Gem Stone Pocket Mirror is a great little gift as a small token or as part of a bigger present.  I chose this because of the print and the size of the actual mirror – perfect for nights out as can slot easily into your clutch bag.

Number two

I know buying clothes for other people can be a tad risky, but I do have some friends and family who I can easily clothes shop for.  I liked how versatile this Alicia Draped Blazer is as it works perfectly for any occasion. 

Number three

This is one of my favourites.  You can never go wrong with bath pampering! These bath oils from Lola’s Apothecary are actually travel ones, so if you’re on the go and stay away a lot you can indulge whilst absent from home.  Great for those folk that work away from home. 

Number four

Oh I adore getting my hair done, it is such a treat!  I have a home hairdresser who I love dearly (Hi Emma if you’re reading this!) but I do sometimes miss the whole pampering feeling you get from a salon.  I’ve had my hair done quite a few times at a blow dry bar before a night out… it really makes you feel glam and that’s why this gift experience from B.Home Beauty was a must on my list!

Number five

Last but not least is the beautifully unique Miniture Galloping Horse Necklace.  This is a great special present for a Mum, sister or best friend. It goes equally as well at night as it does in the day, plus I love the horses and how they’re galloping together.  

So what do you think of my selection this month?  Have a peak at what my other blogger friends on the panel have selected here… there are some fantastic present ideas! Oh you can even enter the competition to win £50 voucher to spend at and a £60 voucher to spend on great experiences as well!  How’s that for a treat?!

Last but not least to brighten up the rainy weather is some exclusive discount codes.

    I love the galloping horse necklace. A bit quirky but still pretty and dainty enough to wear every day.

      Totally… I always think it's good to go for a present that is what the person would buy for themselves but push them out of their comfort zone a bit.
