A QVC Christmas Gift Guide: The best of 2017

posted on: Wednesday, 6 December 2017

Over the past couple of months I have been working with QVC in London, exploring behind the scenes, learning about their business, and most importantly, getting stuck into what exactly they offer. This is a new era for a company that built its name on home shopping, long before the internet came into play. Now, QVC offers a website catalogue of products that is unparalleled. I don't think anyone could have prepared me what I would find here, from furniture to footwear, I've seen it all. I've been hands on with a lot of the product, and have featured a few favourites here on FFG through October and November. So, it seemed only right to deliver the ultimate Christmas edit. What's the point in having all this knowledge of what's available if I'm not sharing it? So, get stuck in....

In 2017, the world went bar cart mad, and with good reason. This has to be one of the most versatile pieces of furniture in your home, and it isn't exclusively for usage as labelled. A bar cart, such as this beauty, can be used as everything from a bedside table to a bathroom accessories cart. The bottom line is that you want to invest in a piece that will give you maximum bang for buck. This Bundleberry drinks trolley is one of my favourite discoveries this year. 

I will speak about this until I'm blue in the face. I am pretty sure everyone that knows me and knows me well has heard me lecture about the amazing Bye Bye Undereye as it's the first under eye concealer I've owned that has actually been able to see me through an entire day without failing on coverage. If you have any beauty addicts in your family, this needs to be in their stocking this Christmas. They will love you forever for adding the most important innovation in beauty to their makeup kit.

This is a video doorbell that you can install to monitor your front door from anywhere on your phone. You can even speak to the people ringing your doorbell, put on a do not disturb function or put a motion sensor alert in place for security. I can't tell you how handy this is as a blogger to be able to answer my door from anywhere in London and to tell drivers where to leave packages or when I'll be back during the day. Best money spent and most definitely my prize pick for 2017.

If you want to change anyone's life this Christmas, give them the new Dyson Hairdryer. This has most certainly changed my mornings and I've only had it two months. Faster drying times, bigger and bouncier hair and as quiet as you'd expect from a Dyson. This is the best money you can spend on your hair, hands down. 

Winter warmer at your service here, with a price point you won't believe. It's the oversized shearling everyone's going on about this season and for good reason. Indulge the fashionista with this special treat under the tree this Christmas! 

If there are any frequent flyers in your family, look no further for the perfect gift. These wireless noise cancelling headphones will give hours of enjoyment on long haul flights, endless train journeys or moments when your Uber driver insists on talking nonstop!

Ok, one more for the beauty lover. I'm 37 and have spent about 20 years looking for a cleanser that can remove all of my makeup after a long day and not make my skin feel like it's being stripped, but equally doesn't leave my skin feeling clogged. This is it guys. So, this is a personal note to Santa that this is what I want under the tree - a year long supply!

If you follow me on instastories, you'll see that I am constantly wearing this. It's my reminder to always smile, but also tends to bring out the smiles in everyone else. It's such a beautiful piece of jewellery and I love the idea of giving someone a smile for Christmas. It's my favourite gift for 2017, truly! 

The Ordinary is one of the newest brands that has taken the world by storm in 2017. It's simple solutions to skincare have truly left editors, retailers and consumers with their jaws on the floor. How can something so simple and so low priced offer up more than the big players that have been around forever? It's a mystery. But this starter kit is the best way to get sunk in and test the promised results for yourself. 

These brownies are handmade to order, and they will be delivered fresh and ready for Christmas day enjoyment. They've been called the best brownies on earth, and I can tell you, with great certainty that they are indeed the best brownies I've ever had. I have a box in my freezer that I am moving through slowly, as if they are pieces of gold. You can freeze them after receiving and pop them, one by one, in the microwave for twenty seconds to give you a freshly baked brownie taste every time. Joy to the world! 

These boots remind you of anything? Well, let me just say these are better, more comfortable and about one tenth the price tag of the designer you are channeling. Merry Christmas!

Do I really need to say anything at all about this interiors masterpiece? One look and I wanted a whole set! No, not just two. I want a twelve piece set for my dining room! How decadent right? It's Christmas... Santa, please!
