Today I have my final gift guide of the Christmas season and i’m so pleased you’ve all enjoyed the few i’ve put out this year even though i’ve not been blogging all that much recently. For my final installment i’m bring you a last minute gift guide with more of a budget feel with nothing (other than one thing) going over around the £30 mark because Christmas really doesn’t have to be costly!
Starting off with a few stocking filler/secret santa style gifts as I know most people have a couple of secret santa gift exchanges and this year my family are opting for a secret santa gift exchange just to make Christmas that little bit cheaper. An obvious but great choice for a stocking filler is a DVD of one of their favourite films, whether it’s a new release such as Mamma Mia Here We Go Again* (£10) or an old classic, you can’t go wrong! Another great secret santa gift could be a cocktail making book of their favourite choice of tipple, and i’ve gotten one of my friends this Shake Muddle Stir: Tequila Book (£10) which contains over 40 cocktails all of which would be great to mix up over the festive period.
Another idea that I wanted to include in my gift guides this year comes in the form of an experience as experience style gifts can make for great days out for not only the person receiving the gift but also for yourself as something to do and enjoy together in order to make memories and to spend some quality time together. One amazing company i’ve heard a lot about is Keith Prowse who are known as the home of rugby for their amazing corporate hospitality services across an array of sporting events including the Six Nations and Cheltenham Races to name a couple, and they offer an exciting array of hospitality packages that would make for a superb gift this Christmas!
Moving onto a few beauty bits that could make lovely last minute gifts and one thing I know any girl would love is a face mask or two to give themselves a little pamper! I’ve recently been using the Daytox Peel Off Mask* (£20) and the Daytox Clay Mask* (£20). Both of these products are great for giving your skin a really good deep cleanse that sometimes you just need after a long week, and you can’t go wrong with a little pamper style present at Christmas. Another product that would make a great secret santa present or stocking filler for someone who loves their fragrance is the Twist & Spritz Refillable Atomiser* (£10) which is a way for you to take your favourite fragrance with you whilst travelling but without taking the full perfume, as there is nothing more nerve wracking than a perfume smashing in your suitcase or handbag.
As well as a stocking filler beauty items, I wanted to feature a couple of gift sets that are absolute steals and would make great Christmas presents for any girl out there. Firstly we have the Nivea Heart of Gold Gift Set* (£6.99) which contains three of their best selling rose scented products. Personally I think you can’t go wrong with a bodycare gift set and this comes beautifully housed in a tin that could be reused for so many things!
Another gift set I had to feature is the Soap & Glory Bubble Act Star Gift* (£30) of which as you all hopefully know, every year Soap & Glory release a star gift set containing an amazing variety of their best selling products worth over £80, of which gets reduced from £60 to just £30 in the run up to Christmas and is one of the best gift sets out there in my opinion. This year this gift set contains more of a variety of products, some of which i’ve never tried and if you know someone who is a massive fan of Soap & Glory then you cannot go wrong with this!
So that is my last gift guide for the Christmas season! I hope you’ve found my gift guides this year to be helpful of which you can read here and here, and if you’re still stuck for gift ideas i’ve linked a few more gifts below!
