I’m so excited to be back with another gift guide for you all today! With todays instalment being all about Christmas gifting for her. I’ve been loving putting together my gift guides this year, so much so that I’ve spent hours shooting, editing and curating the best presents for the ladies out there, so I really do hope you enjoy this gift guide!
Take a read through my top picks for her..
As I say every year, shopping for us girls can often be a hard task especially if the person you’re buying for is just one of those hard to buy for people, and lets be honest half the time we don’t even know what we want ourselves! My gift guide this year has a bit of everything, from beauty to more lifestyle picks with a whole host of other ideas linked at the bottom. So if this gift guide can’t inspire you, then I don’t know what will (I joke)! All jokes aside, lets get into this gift guide because it’s going to be a long one…
Starting off with beauty because you honestly cannot go wrong with gifting beauty/makeup products at this time of year! I’ve always got a palette or two on my wishlist that I often eye up but never get the opportunity to treat myself during the year, so adding it onto my Christmas wish list often helps my parents when he’s struggling with what to buy me.
The first beauty style product that we all know I love to rave on about is fragrance, with so many retailers offering fab gift sets at this time of year. I typically find a lot of people ask for fragrance gifts for birthdays/Christmas as fragrance can sometimes be quite pricey, but if you’re savvy enough you can usually find some great deals. I’ve already written a whole blog post on my fragrance picks with one of my favourite fragrance retailers Fragrance Direct, so make sure to head over to the post to read more.
For makeup I’ve got a few products to share with you that I think any makeup junkie would love to receive at Christmas time! As I mentioned, I always have a palette or two on my Christmas list and a palette that I’ve been eyeing for some time is the Diego dalla Palma Go Crazy Palette* (£32.50). The shades within this palette are so pigmented but yet so versatile with twelve shades that work really well together and you can wear this for pretty much any occasion. Another brand that has been a long term favourite of mine is Lancome, and every year they release their limited edition Holiday Collection which makes for a really special gift to give. This year their holiday collection contains three products, the L’Absolu Rouge Lip Palette* (£45) containing nine beautiful lipstick shades to choose from, the Hypnoses Drama Mascara* (£25.50) and also the L’Absolu Rouge Lipsticks* (£27) with three different shades to choose from. Personally I think the collection this year is just stunning, from the unique frosted look packaging, to the stunning lipstick shades on offer.
Moving onto a couple of gift set options as you can’t go wrong with a gift set as you’re usually saving money in some way with a gift set. A great stocking filler option would be a mini or cracker/bauble style gift and the Kat Von D ‘Love Big or Go Home’ Makeup Cracker* (£20). Containing two of Kat Von D’s best selling products, with a full size of the Kat Von D Go Big or Go Home Mascara and a mini of the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade Love Craft. For someone who wants to try more from the brand, or just loves Kat Von D this would be the perfect gift.
Finally we have one of my personal favourite fake tan brands, which is of course Bali Body. If you’ve followed my blog for the past year or so, then you’ll of seen how much I’ve loved using their products! If the person in which you’re purchasing for is a fake tan lover, then the Bali Body Self Tan Heroes Set* (£65.95) would make the perfect gift! Containing three full size products, of their best selling self tan mousse, face tanning water and luxe moisturising lotion, all housed in a handy travel case. If you’re wanting to read more about the products within this gift set, you can read my reviews on both the self tan mousse here and the face tanning rate here.
Moving away from beauty and on to jewellery, another great gift to give at Christmas time. I always think jewellery is such a personal yet lovely gift to give at this time of year and a brand that is not only of amazing quality, but unique and individual designs is Muru Jewellery. I’ve featured Muru a few times on blog over the years and I still to this day wear a couple of their pieces on a daily basis, with the quality being the same as the first day that I wore these pieces. A recent launch from Muru is their Unearthed Treasures collection, which is a stunning collection inspired by the strong and empowered women of our generation. My personal favourite pick from the collection is their Female Empowerment Gold Moon Necklace* (£64), which is a stunning molten textured look 18ct gold moon shape necklace with a gold chain to match. Worn on it’s own or stacked with other necklaces from the collection, it’s a beautiful necklace that would add a beautiful touch to any outfit.
Finally, the last category of this gift guide is a few lifestyle picks that would make fab stocking filler ideas this year! Sticking slightly on the beauty theme comes a couple of hair accessories. With a lot of brands offering the satin/silk trend to give a slightly more luxe feel to their products, I wanted to share a couple picks as they just make feel that little more special. The Morning Glamour Anti-Ageing & Haircare Satin Pillowcase* (£12.99) which is designed to stop your skin and hair being damaged by your rough pillowcases. These pillowcases are great as they help to reduce frizz, maintain healthy moisture balance in the skin and the hair, but they are also designed to prolong natural eyelash extensions. Who knew?! I love the idea of these pillowcases and i’ve heard some amazing things about them, so why not gift them to someone who you think would love them also! Another cute satin hair accessory is the Only Curls Pink Silk Scrunchies* (£10), again designed to help relieve your hair from the damage of normal hair bobbles and decrease frizz, these too would make a lovely Christmas gift.
Another product you often can’t go wrong with at Christmas, is a fancy hand wash/soap gift as my Mum and my Nan love a good hand soap. This year MOR have got a lovely selection of Christmas gift sets/products to choose from with their Bauble Giftsets* (£8) making the perfect stocking filler/tree hanging present!
Last but not least for this gift guide is a couple of new DVD releases! What I often find fab to gift at this time of year is a copy of someones favourite film from the year, or a box set of their favourite series! One film that my Mum has been dying to see is Rocketman DVD* (£10) and just like any Mum who loves a good sing, she will absolutely love this sing-a-long version! If like my Mum, who know of a film someone really wanted to see but never got the chance to, then gifting them a copy of the film would be a no brainer. As for series, a personal favourite of mine is The Walking Dead Season 9 Boxset* (£24.99) but with how busy i’ve been, I just haven’t got round to watching the ninth season. Boxsets are great, especially if its a series that you and your partner like to watch together, as its not only a gift for them but it’s also a nice gift for you to enjoy on a chilled Sunday afternoon.
So that is my gift guide for her for this year! I’ve had so much fun putting this gift guide together and I really do hope you can take away some gift ideas from this gift guide. I’ve also linked a bunch more ideas below if you’re still struggling, to further help spur some more gifting ideas!
