Ho Ho Ho my festive beauties it’s December!!! So now that I’ve calmed down enough over getting married, I’m all hyped up again now that Christmas is fast approaching. I’ve already seen a bunch of Christmas movies, had some mulled wine and so it’s definitely the right time to share with you a little festive cheer in the form of a Christmas gift guide! I’ve used my santa skills to track down a handfull of treats from £2.99 to £29. So whether you are buying for yourself (totally acceptable) or for someone else, enjoy my Beauty Xmas Gift Guide for her 2016!
These nail polishes from Lottie London are just the trick if you are looking for a quick but gorgeous presie you know will be appreciated. I have four amazing colours here which you can mix up however you like including my favourite shade Just Dance. This is the bottom left shade which oozes Christmas spirit. It’s a warm metalic orange which reminds me of winter spice and all things nice! Superdrug has a huge selection of shades so take your time finding the perfect set for this season.
Yardley London offer something a little different to your usual scented gifts. Based entirely around their contemporary classics range, the Yardley Gift Cracker is just £4 so the ideal stocking filler for a special lady! If you are after something a little more splendid then the EDT and body spray gift set is the one for you at just £10. I just love the designs and simplicity of their gifts, the brand really is the essence of affordable luxury.
Ciaté have designed an amazing range of products this year for Christmas. Not only do they have bauble shaped surprises, they have also created this duo set which doesn’t even need wrapping as you can hang it straight on the tree! Much less work and saves the tape, this gift will look glorious just as it is for someone special this year. The paint pot duo to go sets are fabulous- this one is the colour Gracie/Antique Brooch available on the Ciaté London website here.
The Big Bang Cracker is a unique and wonderful gift for any girl obsessed with makeup this season, and for under £20 I’d say that is a steal! It comes with a nude eyeshadow palette visible at the front, and as you turn it round there are two more sides filled with products. You get a beautiful red lipstick and liner, then a kohl eyeliner with mascara too. Why just settle for one attribute when you can give the gift of a full blown makeover?!
Joan Collins beauty is a recent discovery of mine which I just couldn’t leave out of my Beauty Xmas Gift Guide for her 2016. These two are separate products so not sold together, but they should definitely be bought together in my opinion! The Body Polish is a scented dream of pink Himalayan salt and kiwi seeds which will leave you feeling smoother than you’ve felt in years. I also am in love with the Ten Effects skin treat/makeup fixer. It’s got everything rolled into one for your skin which everyone needs in a Christmas gift after the season’s climax and you are left with an empty bank account and fridge. Two exceptional products that you should consider buying for yourself as well as for another!
Last but by no means least is our last stop on saharasplash’s gift guide list. This is the fragrance ‘By Invitation’ brought to you by Michael Bublé. We are all guilty of getting one or two Bublé CDs each Christmas as the man was made for the holiday season. So why not shake things up and share the Bublé love a different way this month? The fragrance is heavenly, maybe just as heavenly as the man’s voice. It’s sensual and exceedingly yummy, I know I want to wear it all the time! The best place to head for it is The Perfume Shop. If you’re feeling extra generous with this gift, I would make use of the engraving option so you can personalise your perfume. The service is great and you can add that perfect touch to your gift this way.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my first ever Beauty Xmas Gift Guide for her 2016 and that you have found some great new products to consider giving in a few week’s time. Better hurry, those sleigh bells are ringing!
