As we’re all starting the dreaded Christmas shopping, this year i’ve decided to do another gift guide series and to kick things off I though i’d share the bits and pieces i’m wishing for this Christmas. This may also spark a few ideas for what you’d also like, or if you’re struggling to pick something for a female in your life, such as your girlfriend, sister, mother etc..
The only fashion related item i’ve asked for this year is the ASOS Risky Business Boots (£35). I already own these in the plain black version, and have fallen in love with them so much that I had to ask for another pair. I love a good staple boot for winter and these just add a lovely amount of subtle detail to an outfit with the faux croc skin finish.
The first of the beauty bits comes from one of my favourite brands and this is the Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Crayons Gift Set (£16). I’ve added this onto the boyfriends list of things to get me, as this little set comes with three gloss crayons all in shades that I would wear. I’ve never tried any of these, so they would be a lovely little addition, and would make a great stocking filler. Another gift set i’ve got my eye on is The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Festive Picks (£17) as they’ve got some really lovely gift sets at the minute, and this one caught my eye. I really want to try the new argan oil range as i’ve heard some great things and the scent is incredible. Last gift set but a goodie is the Lush Christmas Candy Box (£14.95) as it has a few of my Christmas Lush favourites.
I’m pretty sure every girl has one of the Urban Decay palettes on her Christmas list, and i’ve got both the Naked2 Basics (£19.80) and the Naked Palette (£33.30). I’ve wanted the second basics palette ever since it was released as I prefer the shade range compared to the first one, so this one is on the boyfriends list. As for the first naked palette, this is the only one I have not tried or owned a dupe for so naturally my beauty brain needs it.
I never thought i’d be wanting books for Christmas, but thanks to every blogger out there i’ve found a couple that i’m lusting over. First up is Not That Kind Of Girl by Lena Dunham (£8.49) and i’ve seen Essie Button talking about this so much, that she has made me want it. Also an obvious choice, #GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso (£10.49) as every blogger has featured this in someway on their blog, so again I want it.
Last but not least is something i’ve wanted for ages and this is the Breville Blend Active Family Pack (£29.99). I’ve been really getting into my smoothies, and I hate having to clean my blender day in day out hence why i’ve gone for the family pack as it contains four shaker bottles, which will suit my lazy ways and it means I can have a smoothie on the go.
What are you wishing for this Christmas?
