Home Bargains Christmas Range ♥

I've seen lots of bloggers post Home Bargains hauls over the past few months and have always been in awe of the gorgeous products they have to offer and at such amazing prices too. When the lovely people at Home Bargains asked if I'd like to sample some of their Christmas range I was super excited to see what offerings they had, I was also so surprised to receive as much as I did - a whole box filled to the brim with Christmas themed goodies! Let me show you what Home Bargains have to offer this festive season, I certainly wasn't disappointed with the range, it's gorgeous!

The first things that caught my eye when I opened the box were these festive themed cups. The Santa one is perfect for Tyler and I love that it comes with a plastic straw too - no more replacing soggy paper straws! The mug with knitted cosy is one of the sweetest things ever! It makes me wish I drank hot drinks so I could curl up with a nice hot mug of cocoa and marshmallows. The packing on this make it look far more expensive than it actually is too, it's just gorgeous!

The elf designed velour baby sleepsuit was another lovely thing to spot in the box. It's super sweet for baby's 1st Christmas, it's lovely and soft and it's only £3.99 too! This particular one is 0-3 months so it'll be too small for our baby's first Christmas next year (they'll be seven months then) but my friend just had a gorgeous baby boy and this will be a perfect gift for him.

There were two bath and body gift sets in the box, the first being the Jelly Belly Bath Collection, a trio of bath products in fruity flavours that are bound to make bath time fun. I'm intrigued by the blueberry bath confetti, I can imagine Tyler having a lot of fun sprinkling it around the bath. The other set was the ollie & earl Rose Blossom Hand Gift Set. The packing on this gift set is so pretty, especially on the soap inside. These two gift sets would make perfect stocking fillers.

There were also two lip product gift sets in the box, the first being the Lumiere Lip Smacking Sensation Tinted Lip Gloss set which has five different shaded glosses. I don't wear lip gloss but this will be a lovely little gift for a friend. The second was the Nivea Sweet Lips tin which contains four lip products - two lip butters and two chap sticks, all presented in a lovely little heart shaped tin. This would make a lovely stocking filler gift.

There were two candles inside the box and I love candles so these were a very welcome addition! The first was the Collections Vanilla Fragranced Candle which comes in a glass tumbler with a metal lid. This candle really does have such a strong vanilla scent and it's packaging makes it look much more expensive than it is. The other candle was the Wickford & Co. Apple Cinnamon Luxury Fragranced Candle. The scent of this is the epitome of Christmas scents for me, it's gorgeous! It's packaging reminds me of my favourite candle brand too. I can't wait to burn this have the living room smelling all Christmassy!

These Santa theme bobbles are just adorable and really fun for adding a bit of Christmas decor to your hair. I can see my little cousin loving these so I may have to pass them onto her for Christmas Day. I love the Noel hanging decoration, it kind of has a shabby chic vibe to it with the polka dots and burlap. I'm not sure where I'll hang it yet but it'll find a home come December 1st when the decorations go up, eek! This large Christmas gift bag is just gorgeous and is perfect for bringing someone something special on Christmas Day, I love all the glitter on it and for just 59p it doesn't cost much to add that extra sparkle to someone's gift.

The rest of the things in the box are definitely for making the festive season all the more cosy and I love how everything looks. These tan and fluffy faux suede slippers are just gorgeous and I'm so impressed that the lovely person at Home Bargains knew to get me a size 7 as I didn't specify! These will be perfect for shuffling around the house on those cold mornings and nights. These slippers are just £2.99, such a bargain! This pack of two cosy socks has the same gorgeous packaging as the mug featured above, making it a perfect stocking filler option. Personally I love fluffy socks and the red and white colours of these are just perfect for keeping my feet warm during the festive season.

Finally, this Alpines Naturals Hot Water Bottle was another welcome addition to the box as I can't for the life of me find my old hot water bottle. This is super soft and I just love the muted colours and little wooden heart on the packaging, it definitely looks a lot more expensive than it's £2.99 price tag! I'll be snuggling up with this on those extra cold nights. These Alpine Naturals Ear Muffs look absolutely gorgeous and so cosy with their chunky knit and fluffy earpieces. They have built in speakers too, making them the perfect accessory to take on cold commutes and brisk walks this winter. I think they're so fun and would make a fab gift for someone, although I'll be keeping these for myself for all my outdoor adventures with my boy!

A big thank you to Home Bargains for letting me sample their gorgeous Christmas range, not only is it great value but everything is super stylish too, I love them!
