Christmas gift ideas from The LifeSTYLE Boutique

Hi everyone,

Sometimes, when I look for gifts/Christmas gifts I buy from a couple of different websites, simply because I can't find everything I want in one online store. This way the delivery cost adds up quickly and it is really annoying. I recently discovered a lovely online store called The LifeSTYLE Boutique and fell in love with the selection of products it offers. 

The store stocks brands like Dr Hauschka, Neom Organics, Green and Spring, Aromatherapy Associates, Blend Collective, Cath Kidston, Organics for kids and many more. 
It is very easy to notice that the stock has been very carefully selected to ensure great quality.

The founders of the store are a very enthusiastic husband and wife team in their  twenties with three stores in South Oxfordshire. Pretty impressive in my opinion! The stores look absolutely beautiful and are located in WantageHenley and Wallingford. The was launched in August 2012 and I can see it being a big success. The store offers free gift wrapping on all products  in the beautiful lifeSTYLE blue and white packaging but you can also request special Christmas or luxury wrapping at a small fee of £2 per item. 
On top of that, UK mainland delivery is free if you spend £30! Brilliant! 

When my package arrived, it felt like Christmas. Everything was so beautifully presented and absolutely gorgeous! 

Cath Kidston Wash Bag Notting Hill Rose*

The Cath Kidston Wash Bagis a perfect size for travelling and has enough room for all my skincare essentials and toiletries. I am very pleased with it's functional design and the pattern is super pretty. It is gorgeous and would be a perfect gift for any girl, especially a Cath Kidston addict :) You can get it  here for £18.00

Dr.Hauschka Daily Body Care Kit* & Dr.Hauschka Daily Face Care Kit

I adore natural skincare and I am a big fan of Dr.Hauschka products. They are quite pricey, but definitely worth every single penny. The kits are perfect either for travelling or to discover the range of amazing Dr.Hauschka skincare and bodycare products. The price of the kits is surprisingly good, so they would make a great stocking filler. You can see the full range here.

The Dr. Hauschka Daily Body Care Kit  contains travel size of: Quince Body Moisturiser, Rose Body Moisturiser, Hand Cream, Lemon Lemongrass Body Oil, Rose Body Oil, Lavender Bath, Rose Body Wash and Lemon Body Wash.
You can get it here for £12.95

The Dr. Hauschka Daily Face Care Kit for Normal/Dry Skin contains trial sizes of: Cleansing Cream, Cleansing Milk, Facial Toner, Moisturising Day Cream, Rose Day Cream and Quince Day Cream.
You can get it here for £17.95

NEOM Home Candle Happiness* (£39.50 here)

I love NEOM Luxury Organics and since I got my first NEOM candle and body wash about a month ago, I can't stop adding more products to my Christmas wishlist. I am a big fan of the brand and I can see myself developing a little NEOM addiction. The Happiness candle smells absolutely beautiful and actually makes me happy :) It might sound weird, but as soon as I light the candle I feel more relaxed and I am in a better mood. It is hard to believe that a candle can do that, but it really works! Amazing! Happiness is a blend of White Neroli, Mimosa and Lemon, combined with natural fresh grass notes to create the awakening of spring. It is one of my favourite Neom scents.

Scandi Chic Medium Standing Robin with a star (£9.95 here.)

How cute is this little guy? It is so quirky and beautiful! It will make a perfect addition to my Christmas table, but at the moment I have him sitting on the window ledge and it looks really cute :) If you don't like too much fancy decor for Christmas, you should definitely get one of these.

Cath Kidston Lace Rose Pocket mirror

This pocket mirror is really lovely and if you are looking for cheap stocking fillers for Cath Kidston fans, this is perfect. It costs only £2.50, making it an absolute bargain! More cute designs available here.

I also got one of the gorgeous cards available in the boutique. It is so pretty and thoughtful :)

If you are looking for lovely presents for any occasion, you will love this store. There is so many gorgeous products to choose from. You can also find pretty Christmas decorations and other festive bits and bobs. You can see some of them below.

  4. Everything is absolutely beautiful. They have an amazing business and I like the attention to detail in the packaging. Such lovely wrapping that makes the costumer feel special. They have a lot of diverse products. I also like ordering from one place, then I don't have to keep track of so many different packages. xx

    1. I agree. The wrapping is so beautiful and makes the shopping experience special, perfect for any occasion. If this is complimentary wrapping I can't imagine how amazing the luxury wrapping looks like! :)

      I couldn't photograph it, but if I manage to take a picture I will add it to one of my lifestyle posts :) Too adorable.

  7. I love Dr.Hauschka! Just so pricey :( But their eye cream is really awesome!

    1. It is a bit pricey, but I am planning to stop buying tons of different products and actually invest in more expensive skincare and stick to it :) It sounds like a good plan and I hope I can put it into action when I finish my current products.

  8. Love the effort that goes into the packaging! Also how cute is the little robin :) xx
