Christmas Gift Guide 2018

Fujifilm instax SQUARE SQ6 Camera


An excellent gift that is sure to satisfy and bring a smile to any shutterbug's face would be the instax SQUARE SQ6 camera from Fujifilm. The last few years have seen instant film cameras make a big comeback and Fujifilm's instax series are among the most popular instant cameras out there. The new instax SQ6 is a square format analogue instant camera that has a number of shooting functions ideal for everyday use. Some of the key features are auto exposure control, selfie mode/selfie mirror, double exposure mode, lighten/darken mode and landscape/macro mode. The camera also comes with 3 different colour filters, which attach to the flash. These allow you to add purple, green and orange overtones to your shots, instantly changing the mood of the photograph.

Magnitone Barefaced 2 Cleansing and Toning Brush


For skincare and beauty lovers of all ages, an excellent gift idea would be the Magnitone Barefaced 2 Cleansing and Toning Brush. It is a fabulous tool that cleanses, massages and tones the skin leaving it softer and healthier-looking. I have used cleansing brushes in the past but this is a dual action device - it cleanses and it tones. Based on my experience (I have normal skin that tends to become sensitised every now and then due to the medication I am on), the brush works well for sensitised skin as well. There is a separate mode for that.

The brush makes use of the award-winning 3D Vibra-Sonic technology that combines sonic oscillations and pulsed vibrations (13,000 times per minute) to deliver a deep pore cleansing action. The brush's design is elegant and sleek and the brush heads, I feel, are the right size. Using it is also pretty simple and straight-forward. And in the few weeks that I have used this brush, I feel that my skin now looks healthier compared to earlier. In addition to cleansing, the brush boosts circulation which in turn makes the skin appear healthier.

Some other key features of the Magnitone Barefaced 2 Cleansing and Toning Brush that I liked are the antibacterial bristles on the brush, the 100% waterproof nature which means it can be used in the shower and the lovely caddy to hold it. It is a wonderful product that any skincare lover will love receiving. It is priced at RRP £90.00 and can be purchased from www.magnitone.co.uk


Bruichladdich Classic Laddie Whisky


One of the finest whiskies we have tried and one which has become a favourite at our home since being introduced to us last year is the Bruichladdich Classic Laddie whisky. Crafted by master distiller Jim McEwan, this single malt Scotch whisky is matured for its entire life by the shores of Loch Indaal, thus showcasing the classic, floral and elegant Bruichladdich house style. It is different! It is not as peaty as you would expect. Bruichladdich have tried something different and have come up with a great whisky as a result. It smells amazing - a little deceptively sweet initially and then giving way to a more complex scent - a bit of the salty seaside, some fruity notes and perhaps a mint note. It is smooth and has quite a warming burn which lovers of fine whisky will enjoy.

It has an RRP of £41.99 but is currently available for a discounted rate on Amazon UK.
