* AD – GIFT (This post contains gifted/PR Products)
It’s that time of year again, of course it is Christmas gift guide time! Although I’ve been a little MIA as of late I couldn’t not put together a Christmas gift guide for you this year, as we all know how much I love my gift guides and this year is no exception! This year I’ve pulled together some amazing gift ideas from some of my favourite beauty brands in the hope that it will give you some much needed gift inspo.
Struggling for gift ideas this year? My Christmas gift guide will have you covered!
I don’t know about anyone else, but I am super excited for Christmas this year considering last years Christmas was basically cancelled and with that I cannot wait to just spoil my loved ones that little bit more this year! If you’re like me and you haven’t started your Christmas shopping as of yet, then don’t worry because I have got you covered with this Christmas gift guide as it is jam packed with all of the beauty gift ideas!
L’occitane Gift Sets
An iconic brand when it comes to luxurious Christmas gift sets is of course L’occitane and this year they have absolutely pulled out all of the stops with some truly amazing gift sets for all budgets. A firm favourite this year is definitely going to be the L’occitane Shea Winter Walk Collection* (£50) a stunning limited edition gift set containing four products from L’occitanes signature shea butter collection which is known for it’s hydrating properties and the scent is just to die for. Within this gift set you will get a shower cream, ultra light body cream, light hand cream and soap all of which are packaged with a lovely festive pattern and come housed in a beautiful gift box that can be re-used to store your future beauty products.
If you’re looking something a little more budget friendly this Christmas, L’occitane have a lovely range of stocking filler gift sets all of which come really reasonably priced and are available in an array of different scents to suit everyone. Two stocking filler gift sets that I would recommend are, the L’occitane Almond Festive Bauble* (£12) which contains three mini’s from L’occitanes cult almond collection all of which are housed in a lovely stocking shaped tin, and/or the L’occitane Cherry Blossom Festive Bauble* (£12). Again this contains three mini’s from L’occitanes well know cherry blossom collection, of which are also housed to a stocking shaped tin. Both of these are priced at just £12, making them a great stocking filler or secret santa gift this Christmas!
Nivea Gift Sets
A brand that we all know I personally love is of course Nivea and this year they have just absolutely killed it when it comes to their Christmas gift sets as they have some really amazing ones to choose from! I have two amazing gift sets to show you this year, both of which are full to the brim of some lovely products! First up we have the Nivea Hydrate Yourself Gift Set* (£16) which contains three cult Nivea classics including their Rose & Almond Oil Shower Gel, Soft Moisturising Cream and one of their Pearly Shine Lip Balms of which are some of my favourite Nivea products and within this gift set you also get a super cute reusable water bottle to keep you hydrated.
Secondly we have the Nivea Pampering Indulgence Gift Set* (£20), which as the name suggest is made for someone who loves a good pamper evening! This set is full to the brim of some of my favourite Nivea products and will definitely have you feeling relaxed and your skin feeling extra nourished. Within this gift set you get six, yes six Nivea products including the Cashmere Shower Cream, Nourishing Body Mousse, Irresistibly Smooth Body Lotion, Soft Body Cream, Smooth Hands and Nails Hand Cream and one of their Caring Lip Balms all designed for you to go all out during your pamper evening!
More Beauty Gift Idea’s
As well as the gift sets from both L’occitane and Nivea that I have mentioned above, I also wanted to share some other beauty gift ideas from a few other favourite brands of mine, all of which I know every gal out there will just love to receive this Christmas!
If you’re a long time reader of my blog then you will know how much I love Bali Body and their amazing self tanning products and they have just been killing it this year with their new product launches! Speaking of, their latest launch has got to be hands down my favourite product from them and it has arrived just in time for the party season as you can guarantee I will using this to give my skin it’s party season glow! The product I am raving about is of course the Bali Body Instant Tan* (£17.95) which as the name suggests is an instant self tanning spray that gives your skin a golden transformation within seconds! I have been using this with the Bali Body Blending Brush* (£16.95) when applying the instant tan to just help buff and blend the tan to give a flawless look on my skin and I just absolutely love this product combination! If you’re thinking of ordering from Bali Body this festive season, all orders from Bali Body come packaged in a lovely festive gold gift wrapping and if you spend over $49 then you will receive a lovely free Bali Bod cosmetic bag!
When it comes to my gift guides one gift idea that I alway suggest if of course a fragrance, because fragrance is something that many women don’t necessarily treat themselves too and it just makes a lovely little gift! A personal favourite of mine and one that I know most girls love is YSL Black Opium (£56) which is just the most stunning fragrance that is both feminine and sexy, in the most pretty bottle! I always wear this fragrance around this time of year and will definitely make a lovely gift this festive season. Another fragrance favourite of mine is Paco Rabanne Olympea (£49) again because this is just a stunning womens fragrance! When comparing to black opium, this fragrance is a slightly less musky scent and is definitely more of a sweet scent, but it’s still a stunning and sexy fragrance! I always find over the festive period a lot of brands bring out some amazing gift sets, so no doubt you’ll be able to find some amazing gift set options which usually mean the fragrance ends up being cheaper, so winner winner!
As well as fragrance, another thing that I find women don’t treat themselves to is their favourite skincare products especially when they are a bit more on the spenny side! My personal favourite moisturiser from Clinique is one I always buy either when it’s on offer or when they have a gift set on offer either in duty free or around the festive period because you always save some pennies and it allows you try other products that you wouldn’t usually! This year Clinique have some amazing gift sets available across all of their different ranges which would just make the most amazing gift for your loved one(s) this year! As well as treating them to their favourite skincare products, another skincare product that would make a lovely gift is a facial cleansing brush and I personally love the Magnitone Barefaced2 Cleansing Brush (£95). I love nothing more than after a long week to give my skin a really good deep cleanse and this facial cleansing brush has three different speed settings in order to deeply cleanse your skin whilst also giving yourself a mini facial at the same time. Magnitone have an amazing offer on at the moment, where you can get the cleansing brush along with a load of accessories all for £100, so I would 100% recommend snapping up this offer before its gone!
So there we have it, my ultimate beauty Christmas gift guide and I really hope this gift guide has given you some ideas if you’re still yet to do or finish your Christmas shopping!
