Home and lifestyle Christmas gifts from Amara Living

Believe it or not, I don't just give and receive beauty gifts at Christmas - honest!  There was a time when all of my family were allocated a different luxury eyeshadow palette to buy me at Christmas, but I've toned things down a lot.  I mean, a girl only has one pair of eyes, and I think I've only 'hit pan' on an eyeshadow once in my life... I know I should be ashamed!  So we move on, we learn, we grow, and in pulling back on my beauty bad habits I'm enjoying shopping for some of the other fine things in life, including gorgeous homeware gifts.  I've been having a kitchen and dining room renovation, and although it's taken twice as long as I was promised and I've gone half mad eating microwaved dinners in my bedroom, it's all been worth it in the end and now all I want for Christmas is pretty things for my house!  

Amara Living is a great place to shop for luxury Christmas gifts as they have so many super desirable choices all on the one site and lots of big brands too.  I was literally spoilt for choice, but here's what I ended up deciding to get.  

Kate Spade is a brand I really love for accessories, and they have some seriously pretty homeware too.  I love their shiny gold spot design, so I decided to treat myself to a new thermal mug and sort of matching / coordinating lunch cool bag.  When I make that painful return to work after Christmas is over, at least I'll be doing it in style! 

We have new back doors to the garden in our new kitchen-dining room so I was so happy to find this huge star doormat which is the perfect size - probably twice as big as a normal doormat.  I love the rustic look and simple star design - it's far too pretty to put outside!  

I've thrown out a lot of old mugs during the process of emptying my kitchen and making way for a new colour scheme.  I'd had some of them since we moved into our house ten years ago, so it was really time for an update.  I've had my eye on pieces from the Mr Fox range for ages, and much as I'd love to get one of the bright rugs, they don't really go with my colour scheme, so I've compromised by having little foxy mugs in the kitchen instead.  Aren't they adorable?  

There's a whole lot of copper in my kitchen, and I absolutely love the effect.  It's turned out just how I wanted and I'm over the moon with the grey, white and copper colour scheme.  I had originally wanted a marble worktop, but as I didn't win the lottery, we went with a sparkly white quartz instead.  I'm still craving marble, so when I spotted these absolutely babein' copper and marble candle holders, they went straight into my basket.  They have a natural white marble base topped with copper and they will look just perfect on the shelf above my oven once that's been fitted - one of the last things to do!  

I'm sure I'll be boring you non-stop with details of my new kitchen and dining room once it's completely done, but I hope you enjoyed this little sneak peek!  

All of the pieces I've featured are available now at Amara Living, plus there are lots more truly delightful Christmas gift options.  You can order up until 21st December for Christmas delivery and they also now have click and collect too, which is super handy.
