Hi, are you ready for Christmas yet, or like me, not quite there yet? I’m definitely getting little festive surges, ‘operation pretty tree’ is lined up for the weekend, I’ve bought most gifts but my health is being a pain and holding up the fun factor. So this is my final ‘Tis the Season post, offering a slight gift assortment, and hopefully providing some ideas for those last minute gifts.
Vionic ‘Romi’ Slippers – £80
I am a huge fan of Vionic shoes, and you can find my faves featured here on the blog (just type Vionic in the search box). On trend smoking slippers popular with many fashion bloggers on Pinterest and Instagram, the ‘Romi’ comes in a velvet or suede slide style, complete with a gorgeous regal crest detail embroidered across the front. Its rubber outsole makes this stylish slipper easy and safe to wear outside during the winter (especially if he forgets to put those bins out), and they come with the usual Vionic ergonomic insole.
Available in Red, Navy, Grey, Black with co-ordinating embroidery, plus ALL Black. Sizing : 3 – 8, including some half sizes. Heel height is approx : 1/2 an inch.
The insole has a comfy, soft quilted suede on the top side, and an EVA underside including pressure relief under the heel and ball of the foot. Like all Vionic insoles, it has an arch support to keep the feet and leg aligned, correcting/preventing any over pronation. They are well made with lots of attention to detail, plus they feel really comfy to wear and look stylish at the same time.
These make a luxury gift for any gal that wants stylish not frumpy, when it comes to slippers. Along with their versatility and supportive technology, these make fab, versatile footwear that are not just for wearing inside.
Find the Romi fashion trend smoking slipper at Vionic for a comfortable, chic style gift.

Bluebeards Revenge Hipster kit – £29.99
For some male grooming gift ideas, why not get him a kit like this one, complete with products for the beard, moustache and hair. FHM grooming awards winners, the brand have an array of facial/hair products and accessories.
Quote from Bluebeards Revenge :
“Designed by a real life problem shaver and all-round ‘Bluebeard’, The Bluebeards Revenge originally began life as a barbershop-quality shaving range aimed at men with tough stubble, but nowadays it is so much more. As well as helping the problem shaver overcome his woes, our styling products are designed to tame the manliest of manes, along with beard oils and moustache waxes, soaps and bodywashes, shampoos and conditioners, moisturisers and fragrances…. for Real Men.”
50ml Classic Blend Beard Oil, 20ml Classic Blend Moustache Wax, 100ml Pomade, Cut-Throat Replaceable Blade Razor.
I know my hubby Is will enjoy using the beard oil, although the wax is more for the moustache connisseur. Beards have been a huge fashion look over the last few years, and it is good to see brands allowing men to take care of them. With specifically designed products, there is no excuse now for the guys to let facial hair ‘go rogue‘.
The fab design cut-throat razor does not come with blades (for obvious reasons), but they are available from Bluebeards Revenge stockists
Bluebeards Revenge partnered up this year with male cancer charity Orchid, headed up by England rugby player Phil Vickery. So, on the inside of their product packaging, is info about male cancer issues. A fab idea to raise more awareness amongst the guys!
