Another year – another Christmas… which means Christmas dinner with family and buying gifts for your loved ones. Figuring out what to buy can be very hard especially when you have zero ideas. I know that the first thing you think of is going online and searching for gift ideas, right? It’s what I do.

If you are looking for last-minute gift ideas for your girlfriend then I want to help you. I want to help you get something which she will love and will use on a regular basis – not just something that she will put in a drawer somewhere and never think of ever again.

Christmas Gifts You Can Get Your Girlfriend!

  • Jewellery

If she wears jewellery then you can pick a necklace, earrings, or even a beautiful bracelet. Not only will this gift make her happy but she will actually wear it often – and she will think of you every time she puts in on!

– Makeup

If she is into makeup then you can never go wrong with buying her a luxury makeup item… Of course, if she hasn’t spoken about something she wants then I advise you to go on Youtube and find a beauty guru talking about makeup that is actually good. Not everything that is being sold is a good product and picking up makeup is very tricky.

– Polaroid

There is something really cool about taking pictures on a Polaroid, right? It’s a perfect way for her to capture special moments in her life!

– Acrylic Nail Kit

If she is always going to the salon to get her nails done then this might be the perfect gift for her. Not only will you help her save money but you might help her even find another hobby.

Doing nails is relaxing for a lot of girls and it’s a form of self-care to them.

– IPL Hair Removal Device

Over the past couple of years, these machines have been extremely popular.

I guarantee than your girlfriend will love this gift. It will make her life so much easier because with her IPL Hair Removal Device she will be able to reduce unwanted hair growth!

Don’t Know What Gifts To Get This Christmas? Book A Professional Cleaning!

Are you out of gift ideas this Christmas? I get it – I was in the exact same situation. I had absolutely no idea what to buy for Christmas for my mother. It seemed like I had figured out what to gift everyone else in my family except for my mom.

As we all know Christmas is right around the corner – which means that you should already be prepared for the gifts.

About a week ago I sat down and I really started thinking – I have already gifted jewellery, watches, a vacuum cleaner, a vacation, clothes, shoes, etc. Basically, everything possible. So how can I think of a special, unique, and creative gift which will be helpful to my mother? And then it hit me – something I had never thought of – cleaning with a professional cleaning company!

Let me tell you – every year, my family and I, we go to my parents’ house and they are always preparing the food, they decorate the house so that it’s festive, etc. Basically, they do everything. Of course, everyone prepares some type of food and brings it, however, the main more complicated things like the turkey are made by my mother.

When all of my family is gathered guess what – we make a mess! After all, my aunts, uncles, cousins and their wives/ husbands, great-grandmother, etc. We are a huge family and it’s normal that the house is turned upside down by the time we leave. Now, not only does my mother prepare everything but she has to clean the house after. That’s unfair, right?

That Is Why I Decided To Gift Her A Professional Cleaning!

I had booked a cleaning company before which is why I immediately dialled Cleaners Manchester and requested a Deep Cleaning as well as an Oven Cleaning for the 26th of December. I knew that they work even on holidays which makes everything easier for me!

I told them that it is a gift, therefore, I wanted to receive some type of an envelope with the cleaning services written in there – thankfully, they send me the exact same thing I asked. All I had to do is put it in a gift bag!

The best last-minute Christmas gifts for her: Christmas 2019

Christmas is literally right around the corner. You probably still haven’t gotten gifts. If you are stressing out and you seem to can’t think of something to get a woman in your life – here are the best last-minute gift ideas that you can use.

Shopping for a woman can be a hard task. Women tend to be picky and every woman likes different things. Don’t stress out too much. Last-minute Christmas shopping is actually not unusual and everyone seems to do it. People that are organized and buy their gifts on time are very rare. So don’t blame yourself but get to work.

Before deciding on what you are going to buy really think about her interests, goals, and dreams and reflect that in her gift.

Every girl is different. If she is into fashion you can go and buy her clothes, shoes, or a bag. This can, of course, be tricky since you most likely won’t be able to pick whatever she is going to like. For those of you that are sure of her taste or she has been talking a lot about something that she wants – good for you. But for those of you that can’t trust themselves – grab her a gift card for her favorite store and let her go and choose whatever she likes. This gift is great since she will have the freedom to pick whatever she would really wear.

Another great gift is a classic – jewelry. Every girl likes jewelry. Note what she wears more often – some like rings, some like necklaces, some love earrings. Pay attention to these details and go out and buy whatever she likes to wear. Some girls don’t like wearing rings, for example. So if you have never seen her wear any don’t get her that because she will be kins of disappointed probably.

Parfume. Go and grab her a nice luxury perfume. I don’t think that there is a woman out there that doesn’t like a nice perfume. We all want to smell nice. Some girls like perfume more than others and have a ton of variety on their vanity. Some have only a few. Regardless of that, every woman likes perfumes.

Why you shouldn’t drink coffee on an empty stomach

Almost everyone drinks coffee early in the morning on an empty stomach. But not many know that this habit is actually not good for you and you should always eat before getting your daily dose of caffeine.

What happens when you drink coffee on an empty stomach is that the level of cortisol in your body increases. For those of you that don’t know what this is – cortisol is a hormone that regulates your immune response, your metabolism, and your stress response.

In the morning when you wake up your body starts releasing this hormone anyways so when you drink coffee your body ends up releasing way too much of it. By doing this you subject your body to too much stress. This causes mood swings throughout the day and it can be a risk for your health in the long run.

Coffee also stimulates the acid in your stomach and when there is no food to absorb it you are left with a belly that is full of acid.

This can cause gastric ulcers and you will probably experience heartburn.

All of the above combined with mood swings and anxiety is not a good idea.

If you not only drink coffee on an empty stomach but you consume large amounts of it you can not only experience anxiety but panic attacks as well.

Coffee has plenty of benefits and if you want to experience them without the downfalls that I listed – make sure you drink it after grabbing breakfast and in moderate amounts.

My first Christmas as an adult.

 Christmas without a doubt is my favorite holiday. Usually all December I am happy and I get this feeling inside like my life is about to change and there is going to be a huge Christmas miracle. Briefly, I am full of life and I am eager for the dinner on the 25th. Last year didn’t make an exception. While in this happy overjoyed state I took the worst decision of my life – to have all of my family members in my house for Christmas. Since I live alone for almost a year, I am so independent and I take such good care of myself this idea that I can manage to feed 15+ people, decorate my house beautifully and welcome them warmly just overcame my common sense. I am terrible at cooking, of course, I will manage to make a decent dinner and impress everyone, sure.

By the time I realized that this task is a bit too complicated for me it was too late. There was no going back and I had to suck it up. My mother knows me so well and she was very well aware that it’s almost impossible for me to do this. My pride is too strong though so there was no chance of me backing down. I had to do it.
Exactly on the 1st of December, I decorated my house just the way I wanted. Of course, my parents helped me with that. I put up the big tree, all the stockings for my now unwanted guests, all the Christmas lights. That wasn’t as hard as I thought, actually it was quite fun. I am not going to mention how much money I spent but the important thing was that my home turned out just like I envisioned it.

Now here is the most difficult part… The cooking. I remember it was a week before the dinner and I was still just procrastinating full of anxiety. This was the only thing I could think of and yet I still wasn’t doing anything. I was in this constant state of panic. I sat one night, exactly three days before the dinner, and I really started thinking about the mess I had successfully put myself in. I calmed down a bit and started googling easy Christmas recipes. Let me add here that my dad is a professional chef and there was NO chance at all of impressing him. Imagine cooking for Gordon Ramsey? Disaster… My mother? She is used to eating my fathers’ dishes so she was a lost cause as well. What about the other guests? Hell, I can’t even impress myself how am I going to manage to do this? I remembered my vision. Everyone happy in my house. They wouldn’t care for the food that much, right? After hours of pointless panic and anxiety, I was determined to get some work done.

I made a list of everything I needed. The next day I bought everything. I started cooking and boy was it the most difficult thing I had ever done. I don’t even want to dig deep into the process. I had about five full-on mental breakdowns while I was only cutting the vegetables. I can only imagine how amusing I looked. The most important thing was that I did it. Some things were a bit burned, some weren’t fully cooked but ‘’the salads would save me’’ I thought.

On the 25th I was surprisingly calm since I knew that my food is not that good. It was still edible and that was good enough for me. I decorated the table, I got dressed and I was ready for my guests. The whole night was actually amazing. My family brought food. Literally, my parents came with a cooked turkey, my aunt with vegetables, my grandma with the desserts. They even came with drinks. Being well aware of the fact that I can only make eggs and the chance of me being able to cook a decent full course meal was very slim, they came prepared. This was actually cute and it made me very happy. After having fun all night everyone decided that it’s time to go. After they left I sat in the hallway feeling super content and full of joy. I made it. I didn’t do so terrible. We all had fun and it was actually one of the best Christmas nights that we have had.

Then another problem presented itself. I had to clean everything. I swear my whole house was such a mess I couldn’t even believe it. Present wrappings everywhere, my sink was full of dishes and I don’t even have a dishwasher. The list goes on and on. The table was a mess. There was food everywhere in the house. I even saw that someone had spilled wine on my carpet and I love this carpet to death. So what did I do? I just went to sleep. I was a bit tipsy, tired and full of emotions and there was not a chance in this world that I was going to clean this now. I said to myself maybe I am dreaming.

Guess what? I wasn’t dreaming and this mess was real. It looked even worse in the morning. I called my mother and I explained to her the situation. She came and helped me wash the dishes and clean a bit but it was literally so much work. I thought I would never be in this position but here I was. May I add that I am kinda lazy and I don’t want to spend my free time cleaning. So, of course, I called a cleaning company (Monster Cleaning) to come and take all of my problems away. I couldn’t bother cleaning. They sent me this nice lady that said would be ready in two hours. When I came home I was pretty pleased with the result. My home was fresh, clean and spotless with no signs of my family being there the other night. Not to mention that I use this lady on the regular now 🙂
