It’s the most wonderful time of the year and time to get planning magical gifts for friends and family. As the lead up to Christmas is my favourite thing about winter, I really wanted to make the most of the season. The Gift Guide edit is one I find extremely fun to produce, so I hope you love all my suggestions. Theres a mixture of firm personal favourites and new goodies I’m sure you’ll love.
Antipodes Skin Care Products // Prices starting from £12
This skincare brand takes you back to nature, with organic and vegan products. Perfect if you care about the environment, want beautiful skin and know someone who is vegan. It’s a New Zealand based brand who uses natural ingredients to make amazing products. I had the pleasure of meeting the founder as an event, and the brand history is definitely worth checking out. My favourite item is the Divine Face Oil, for what feels like a treat to my skin within my routine.
Being Sanctuary by SPA Goodies // Prices starting from £4
Boots have revamped their smellies collection ‘Being Sanctuary by SPA’ with a dose of 5 new punchy fragrances. From banging body butters and bath bombs to hand creams and luscious lotions. Each fragrance has 9 items to choose from so would make an amazing bundle gift for someone. You could put together a hamper with tissue paper and ribbons to match the bright colours of the packaging. A great gift for a friend or someone who is into there pampering and bath times.
Superdrug Body Mist Sprays // Pink Tropic & Aqua Haze only £3
Superdrug are the leaders when it comes to fragrance and lovely body sprays. These two are great options for a slightly more ‘premium’ looking stocking filler. They come in a nice box and for only £3 look and smell far more expensive then they cost. Great for girlfriends, sisters or friends who likes something sweet and for a collection of small lovely gifts in one.
Go Get Glitter Face jewel & Pigment // Starting from £7
For any face jewel and glitter lovers Go Get Glitter would make a great gift!! This year they launched their first jewel and gem collection, including this mermaid set. Amazing for friends presents and fellow unicorns in your life, you can’t beat a glitter party at Christmas.
Lime Crime Diamond Crushers & Pocket Palette // Starting from £15
This wish list had to include my current favourite make up brand, Lime Crime. They can sometimes get a bad rep online but I love their cruelty free vegan make up and funky nostalgic packaging. The Pocket Candy Palette is clearly inspired by 90s toy Polly, and I am loving it so much. For any nostalgic lovers, this would make the most incredible gift.
L’Oreal Make Up Glow Kit & Galaxy Lumiére // Starting price of £7.99
L’Oreal has some amazing new releases in their make up department which are incredible stocking fillers or gifts for the beauty lovers. The Glow kits are beautiful pigments and I use them on my eyes and face. The new Galaxy Lumiére lip gloss looks beautiful worn over matte lips to give them the perfect party shine.
Nails Inc Dirty Unicorns Nail Polish // £11 each
Forget the typical festive nail shade of red, when Nails Inc have released these dirty unicorn glittery shades. The dark blue and purple are great winter colours and are £11 each. Perfect stocking filler or for treating yourself!
Fashion & Accessories
Primark Tassel Earrings // £2
If you want to buy several little gifts for that special someone then definitely head to Primark. I love shopping there for stocking fillers, little bundles of gifts and other things. Accessories are lovely as they have a huge variety. The only downside is for the internet shopping fans, Primark don’t have an online store, so a trip to the shops it is!
Beauxoxo Woodland Beret in tan // £30
Beauxoxo is the goto place for hair accessories! Unique, whimsical and pretty it’s a fantastic option for girly girls who love to pimp up their hair. Berets are a great choice this season as they are on trend and keep your heads warm in the chilly weather. Surprise your friend with one of these hand embroidered beauties and only £30, incredible!!
I hope you enjoyed this collection of items for part 1 of my Christmas gift guide. It features some of my favourite brands and products right now, as well as incredible new things. Look out for part two in a couple of weeks, and let me know in the comments what you like the look of!?
