*AD-GIFT (This post contains gifted/PR items)
The time has finally come to put together probably my favourite style of blog posts… GIFT GUIDES! In true me style, I have gone all out for this years Christmas gift guide and I have decided to put out just one gift guide this year, making it the ultimate Christmas gift guide jam packed with gift ideas. I’ve got a bit of everything, from your favourite brands to some small businesses that I personally love, so I hope you find some great gift ideas within this gift guide!
The wait is over, my ultimate Christmas gift guide for her is here!
Kicking off this gift guide with my favourite type of gifts and they are of course beauty gifts! It is the best type of gift to go for when it comes to buying for us girls and so many brands offer some amazing gift sets at this time of year, and I’ve got some amazing beauty gift ideas for you!
Nivea is a brand that we all I know I personally love and this Christmas they have some truly amazing gift sets, full to the brim of products that any girl would love to receive this Christmas. The Nivea Soft Rose Collection Gift Set* (£9.99) is one of the many gift sets that they have available this year, bursting with an amazing selection of Nivea’s rose products. From some of their newest skincare launches to some of their truly classic products designed to make you feel truly pampered and relaxed this Christmas, and after the year we’ve had we all need it! Another gift set from Nivea this year is the Nivea Natural Collection Gift Set* (£14.99), which is made from 30% recycled materials and is designed with the more eco friendly consumer in mind. Containing products such as their biodegradable facial wipes and a reusable face cloth, this gift set is another lovely gifting option available from Nivea this year.
If you’re looking to spend a little more and gift some more luxury beauty items, Temple Spa have some amazing gift sets as part of their Into the Woods Collection this year with each gift set designed to give you that at home spa experience. A favourite of mine is their Do Not Disturb Gift Set* (£46), which is designed as a wonderful peace and relaxation style gift set and contains products to help you relax and unwind before bed in order for you to have the best nights sleep possible. I’m sure i’m not the only one who is struggling a little with their sleep at the moment and just being able to relax in general, so this gift set would be great for anyone struggling a little to. Temple Spa also have some amazing Black Friday deals at the moment, so be sure to check those out if you’re thinking of purchasing from them this year!
Moving onto a classic gift option and let’s be real, it wouldn’t be a Style & Splurging gift guide if it didn’t contain some sort of fragrance! I always say this, but fragrance is one of the easiest gifts to give at Christmas whilst also being personal to who you’re buying it for. A personal favourite fragrance of mine is the Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau de Toilette (£39.95) and is a classic fragrance that I know many gals also love! I’ve also linked a few more fragrance options below for you, if you’re stuck on what fragrance to gift this year.
Next up in my ultimate Christmas gift guide we have some lifestyle gift ideas! As well as beauty we all know that us gals love a bit of lifestyle and home/interior, so I wanted to share a few gift ideas with those interests in mind. I hope that these products give you some ideas if you’re purchasing for someone who has maybe just moved into a new home this year, or isn’t as into beauty as others are, but still want to gift something just as thoughtful.
As well as their beauty gift sets Temple Spa have some lovely lifestyle/home fragrance products as part of their Into the Woods collection and let me tell you, they smell incredible! There is nothing nicer than coming home to your home or space smelling amazing, so gifting products that can help to make someones space feel like this is a no brainer! The Temple Spa Warm Welcome Aromatic Room Diffuser* (£38) is such a beautiful and luxurious home fragrance product and I personally love everything about this. The scent is so unique and strong, unlike some diffusers that you can barely smell and the packaging is just stunning. As well as the diffuser, the Temple Spa Warm Glow Spa Aromatic Candle* (£28) is another amazing home fragrance option and is a lovely gift to give to someone who loves their candles!
Moving away from the home/interior and onto a great lifestyle gift idea which is a stunning Nordgreen Infinity 5-Link Watch* (£169). A watch is a timeless classic lifestyle accessory that would make for an amazing gift this Christmas and Nordgreen have so many watch styles to choose from, for both women and men. What is also amazing about the brand is that they are carbon neutral, meaning that you can shop with them knowing they are striving towards not only making amazing quality pieces, but they also care about the planet and it’s future. Make sure to check out their Black Friday deals for some incredible discounts and to treat a loved one this Christmas!
Small Businesses to Support
One thing that I wanted to ensure that this ultimate Christmas gift guide included is some amazing small businesses that I personally love and have supported myself over the last few months. With times being tough for everyone, it’s even more important to shop local at this time of year, so I wanted to share with you some amazing businesses for you to also discover.
One lifestyle product/trend that I have seen absolutely boom over the last year is wax melts and I too am absolutely obsessed with wax melts. My collection is very well stocked and will definitely last me well into next year! A small business that I absolutely love for their wax melts is Tilly Wicks, run by a lovely lady who juggles both this small business and working her full time job who I take my hat off to! Tilly Wicks offers a range of lovely wax melt products made from eco soy wax in an array of scents for you to choose from. My personal favourite product from them is their Wax Melt Tester Set* (£8) which contains four scents of your choice. My personal favourite scent is ‘Pink Champagne & Pomelo’, which smells absolutely amazing and is a lovely sweet feminine scent. As well as the tester set’s, they also offer an array of scented wax melts and have recently launched their Designer Inspired Wax Melts (£3.49), so you can fill your home/space with the scent of your favourite designer perfume! If you’re buying for someone this Christmas who loves their wax melts, I’d really recommend checking out Tilly Wicks!
Another amazing small business who I myself only discovered around a month ago was Benji’s Shop, who stock a wonderful variety of homeware and lifestyle products for all different home ware styles. I recently treated myself to one of their Raspberry Lemonade Diffusers (£10.95) after I saw that they were doing a restock and I’d had my eye on them since I first discovered them. Unfortunately the diffuser is currently sold out, but they have so many other diffusers and wonderful home products that would make lovely gifts this Christmas!
Moving back to beauty for this next small business, we have Secret Scent Box who you may have seen me talk about in previous posts. Secret Scent Box* (from £13) is a lovely perfume subscription service delivered to your door/the person you are buying for’s door and you get three miniature sizes of surprise fragrances each month! I personally love the idea behind this because it allows you to try new scents and discover ones that you may later go on to buy the full size of, and it means you have handy travel size bottles to pop in your handbag to give yourself a top up throughout the day! I have gifted Secret Scent Box to so many of my friends for their birthdays in the past and they absolutely love it, so it would make an amazing gift for anyone this Christmas!
Last but not least, a small business that I know personally and also love is Lazy Lemon Vintage, run by the lovely Chloe. If you or are buying for someone loves their handmade, vintage and preloved clothing, then Lazy Lemon is the perfect little shop to support this Christmas. Chloe hand makes unique clothing and accessories including scrunchies and headbands, and sources unique pre-loved fashion accessories. You can buy these separately or you can purchase one of her Lazy Pick & Mix Box* (£20) containing a variety of surprise goodies making it a perfect gift option this Christmas as it will be a surprise to both you and the person you are gifting it to! If these sound like something you’d be interested in gifting, you can purchase through her Depop or you can message her for custom orders through her Instagram!
So there we have it, my ultimate Christmas gift guide! I have linked a few more gift ideas down below if you’re still stuck for ideas but I do hope this gift guide gives you some ideas for presents this year, or just a little treat to yourself!
What are your plans for Christmas this year?
