Doesn't time feel like it is passing by when you've still got gifts for people to buy, luckily I made the conscious effort to have the majority of my shopping done before the end of November. However, there are gifts I still needed to purchase and with the help of the Derby Intu Shopping Centre their late night shopping hours are an absolute god send to get it all done promptly.

I gave myself the task of hunting out 5/6 gifts that are left on my list in the space of an hour and below are my results. 

I headed to Lush on the ground floor where I purchased one of their beautifully wrapped gift sets, full of the best in their Christmas range. If you know somebody who enjoys to pamper themselves then Lush definitely have something for everyone.

I don't know who doesn't enjoy receiving new socks for Christmas, especially if they're ones with a festive print on them (personally they're my favourite). These ones from H&M scream out Christmas and are a lovely stocking filler! Another great stocking filler is the 20ml Marc Jacobs Daisy Purse Spray complete with a 15ml refill. I love this refreshing scent and it's cute pocketsize product will be such a lovely gift. I popped to New Look where I grabbed this thick knit bobble hat, people need plenty of these in their collections (well I know I do). Now the last gift I was looking for was a one line a day diary but I couldn't source one so decided to purchase a couple of clothing products from H&M, cosy sweaters and roll neck jumpers are perfect for getting you through the last months of Winter. 


After a spot of shopping we all need good food and good drink with even better company, it's what Christmas is most fun for. Myself and a couple of blogging friends, Jay and Jessica decided to pop to Zizzi's. Intu Derby has such a great selection of restaurants for you to dine in and we decided on Zizzi's because any time of the year it's still acceptable to enjoy pizza.

Zizzi have an amazing array of food on offer, and even have a great selection of festive cocktails which will no doubt get you into the festive mood this season. Don't forget to gather your friends and family for some good food this Christmas, or why not head to the Showcase Cinema to see the latest releases.
