Christmas Gift Guide for Girls & Guys

Christmas is only a month away and I’m sure some of you still have no idea what to buy for your family, friends or significant other.

It can be really hard to find the perfect present for them. You want the best for them, but you don’t want to go over the top. But that doesn’t mean that you want to buy something cheap and useless, right? I made a list of 20 gift ideas for guys and girls, which I chose with the help of my boyfriend, to make sure it’s something guys actually like. Some are a bit more expensive than others but I’m sure you’ll get some inspiration from it.

48 Hours in London

I was really excited to go on this trip, I had planned it for months. I’ve been to London before, this time was going to be my 10th time in that wonderful city. But this trip was something that I was especially excited about. I’m a huge NFL fan, I’ve been watching games for years, stayed up all night to see my team win and bought a ton of merchandise over the years. So planning my trip to London was something really special. My first American football game. 



We decided in February to go and see the Rams play the Cardinals in Twickenham stadium at the end of October. A good friend, as well as my cousin were gonna join me.

Since I live in Berlin and the airports there are really bad – sorry to say it, but it’s true – I went to Hamburg to catch my flight to London Heathrow there on Saturday morning. My flight was delayed by an hour due to the heavy wind in the London area. I normally would’ve taken the underground but because of the delay, I decided to take the Heathrow Express, which only takes 15 minutes from Heathrow to Paddington, which is right in the centre of London.

At Paddington, I met my friend, who shared the Airbnb with me. We stayed near Kings cross, which was perfect since it’s so close to the centre.

We spend the rest of the day shopping at Oxford Street, which is always really nice since there are so many shops that we don’t have in Germany. I got myself a sweater, as well as some Rosie for Autograph make up. I only travelled with carry-on so I didn’t have much space left in my suitcase.

The day after we went to get breakfast at a coffee shop before heading (yet again) to Oxford Street, this time I bought nothing and we ended up at a sports bar, where we stayed to watch premier league. In the afternoon we went to the Twickenham stadium to see the game. Sadly I wasn’t allowed to bring my camera and since it was dark I didn’t take good iPhone shots either.

The game was a lot of fun, even though the game wasn’t as thrilling as we expected it to be (the Rams won 33 – 00). It was freezing and I really wished I would’ve brought a scarf and gloves.

My flight back to Hamburg was at 3:30pm the next day, so I still had some time left to stroll around a little more. I went back to Oxford and Bond Street, bought some stuff at VS, had a snack and then went to the airport.

Even though it was a really short trip I still had lots of fun and I already miss this radiant city.
