Christmas is coming! It only seems like last week we were sitting in January, it's come round so fast. My most favourite part of Christmas is planning the gifts, working out what the girls want, jotting down endless lists of websites and shops I want to buy from. My main worry is I miss an item or worse a person off my list. In order to prevent this and make my shopping much easier, I try to find places where I can buy a big chunk of my list in one place. This year has been no different. I have picked up bits and pieces throughout the year but am nowhere near finished.
When toxicfox.co.uk contacted me and asked if i would like to work with them i jumped at the chance. I have been a long term fan of their website and have purchased many items before. A whole website full to the brim with personalised gifts, funny gifts, his and hers gifts.... there really is something for everyone. I was asked if i would like to review a few items which included the amazing claireaBella bags and Typography of Love picture. To say i was excited was an understatement. As a bag fiend... yes! as a special personalised piece of perfectness... Yes Yes Yes!.
Having recently revamped their website, and added a handy christmas gift finder, toxicfox.co.uk is colourful, inviting and easy to navigate around. Considering this site started in 2011, its come a long way and for me personally it stands out. Everything is clearly labelled, and each section is packed full of goodies. I would advise not just grabbing the first thing you find. Have a good look around, there is plenty for everyone with items to suit all budgets. It would be really easy to complete the majority of your christmas shopping in the one place and with so much choice it would be too easy to miss that perfect item if you just had a quick look.
I have attached a handy video on finding your perfect gift.
Here is my review of the items we received.
These ClaireaBella bags were very popular with the TOWIE girls and many celebs. Each bag is individually hand painted and accessorised by trained UK artists and sold exclusively at toxicfox.co.uk.
The process of designing this bag was really easy. It is completely customisable with lots of options so you can guarantee that you get what you ask for. Each bag has a little bow attached and a little made with love heart charm. Add in some glitter and crystal accessories and you have the making of something girly and beautiful! I was desperate to keep this for me but i knew it would be perfect for big K. I think the smile on her face says it all! Being quite a strong bag its perfect for her school books and for when she is out and about shopping with her friends. The ClaireaBella jute bags come in a range of sizes and even includes a kids range. This particular one is a large size and is really roomy. Price wise this ClaireaBella Large Jute Bag costs £39.99 which for me personally it is a little out of my price range for an every day purchase. For a gift though this is about the same price that i would expect to spend. Throw in the fact that it is hand made to my personal preference and is looking to last much longer than any other handbag has lasted in my house, it is something i would happily splash out on.
As well as Jute Bags, ClaireaBella have a wide range of other products which include accessories, clothing, kids and stationary.
Typography of Love
This had to be the one item on their site which excited me the most. I love the Typography of Love frames. They can be fully personalised using the colour and words of your choice. Simply choose your item, your frame and word colour. Choose 10 meaningful words and sit back and wait for your perfect picture to arrive. I chose to go with the theme of family. I have the time my kids were born and some words which describe our family. There is co ordinating little crystals on the picture which i thought added to the special touch. It comes on a sturdy frame and the writing is clear. Its much more perfect than i imagined it would be and looks simply stunning on the wall.
Priced at £39.99 they really are worth their money.
The Typography of Love range is not limited to framed pictures. Why not choose a pillow or a phone case? Or a cup? There is a little bit of everything to suit everyones personal taste and budget.
As well as the ClaireaBella bag and Typography of Love frame, i was also sent a couple of extra items which i was not expecting.
A Beautiful Bath Bomb Cracker
Anyone who knows me will know my love of bath bombs. This Bath Bomb Cracker contains 3 cupcake christmas themed shaped bath bombs with fruity berry scents. There is a handy little tag attached giving more details about the contents and as they are contained in a handy cracker shaped packaging, its perfect to place straight under the tree as a lovely treat after the busy Christmas period. I have not opened this yet as i am saving it till boxing day but the smell is really strong, i could smell the contents almost instantly. I cant wait to break this open and have a long soak. There is a few Bath Bomb gifts on the toxicfox website but this one is priced very reasonably at just £7.99. Seeing how great this is i think i will be purchasing a couple for the women in my family.
Sexxy - Shoo Pink Stiletto Perfume
This is a perfect present for any girly girly. The perfume is a nice light fruity scent which is not overpowering at all. The Sexxy - Shoo Pink Stiletto Perfume is larger than it looks in the photo. Its larger than it looks, the heel compartment being the spitzer. Priced competitively at £9,99 it would be great for any shoe or perfume fans.
Why not have a look yourself and grab some stocking fillers.
As you can tell i am impressed. I love the overall look of the site, how easy it is to use and overall, their customer service is fantastic. I was able to see the designs before choosing and was kept fully updated. There is a handy track my order section which can be accessed simply by signing in and which i thought was a nice touch. My items arrived really quickly considering they were hand painted and printed and were packaged wonderfully to avoid any breakages. I have a basket full of items ready and will be adding this company to my list of sites i use regularly for gifts. Keep an eye out for my personal gift choices this weekend.
