Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide
I envy those people who have all their Christmas presents sorted by September. If this is you then just how do you do it?! I don’t think I’ve ever started my Christmas shopping before December which is probably why every single year I am running around madly, forcing myself to brave the chaos of the shops. So to help those of us still searching for gifts for the ladies in our lives, whether that’s your sister, friend, mum, girlfriend or if you’re simply looking for some inspo for your own Christmas list, I’ve put together a gift guide containing some beautiful pressies!
Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate is amaaazing and a must for anyone big on skincare. I use this every night after picking it up from a Kiehl’s blogger event and I absolutely love it and think it would make such a lovely gift.
Lipsticks always make such good gifts because you can add one to accompany another gift or buy an expensive one to go by itself. I love the Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Lipsticks. I think the black and gold design looks so luxurious and their hydrating and long lasting formula is a winner for me. If your loved one loves having that all-year-round glow then why not buy them some tanned treats?! I’m currently loving the NKD SKN Tan for a deep bronzed glow and the packaging is so so nice! They do everything from pre shower tans to a one night only party set!Pyjamas or underwear always make good gifts. Especially items from places like Victoria Secret or Calvin Klein. I love my Calvins so much, they’re the comfiest things ever! You can buy them from House of Fraser here where they’re actually in the sale! The MAC Warm Neutral Eyeshadow Palette is the perfect eyeshadow palette for any makeup lover. The shades are beautiful and you can create such a variety of different looks plus MAC eyeshadows are just amazing! Still undecided? Read all about the MAC Warm Neutral Palette here.Another good gift for a makeup lover or wannabe makeup artist is makeup brushes. They can be quite expensive but they make so much difference to the application of your makeup! Real Techniques ones are affordable but still really good quality and you can buy them here. Alternatively Beauty Bay have some amazing sets here. I love candles and I feel like they’re such ‘safe’ presents to buy as come on, who doesn’t love a good candle?! This Kate Spade one is so pretty and it’s fig scent smells amazing too. You can pick it up from Amara here but make sure you check out their other scents and gifts too, you’ll be so spoilt for choice. Jewellery always makes a lovely gift and places like Pandora and Thomas Sabo are good choices that won’t break the bank. I’m obsessed with Olivia Burton watches this year, they’re just gorgeous!Benefit always do aaaamazing gift sets. I saw a few on their website containing some of their most popular products and I thought they’d make the perfect gifts. You can browse them all here. Failing that, buying a high end makeup product is always a nice idea and Benefit’s Hoola is one of my all-time favourite bronzers!I love a thoughtful and meaningful gift. It makes me so happy when someone has actually put thought into a gift. Buying a cute frame with a photo of you together is such a nice idea or literally anything memorable that they can keep. If you’re looking for a nice photoframe then Paperchase do some really pretty ones!Last but not least, perfume. Everyone wants to smell amazing right and you can never have too much perfume! I love this Jimmy Choo one here but I’m crossing my fingers for Flowerbomb this year…that was not a hint at all by the way…Have you got your Christmas presents sorted?
