Here’s my stupidly last minute gift guide. I hope most of you have finished your Christmas shopping but if not here are some final ideas for any beauty lover, which you will now have to buy in store as it’s Christmas Eve tomorrow.
Also, if you’ve finished all your Christmas shopping (well done!), it’s also a great list for items to watch out for in the sale- often gift sets are discounted and you can bag a real bargain.
I have some great picks for makeup lovers and all of these are very much staying in my own makeup collection and won’t be gifted because they’re just too good! My number one pick is this Charlotte Tilbury Lip Achieve, I love Charlotte Tilbury as a Christmas gift and I think any makeup lover would love to see this under their tree! It contains three very wearable shades and for £60 it’s a little pricey but a real treat! Another beautiful set is this one from Laura Geller, which is a fabulous brand which I really want to explore more next year and this set has some of their hero products which will add a sparkle to the festive period.
I think palettes make great gifts so I’ve picked four; Too Faced Pretty Little Planner- which is just the absolute cutest, Benefit Complexionista Face Palette for anyone looking to master their base in the new year, Chantecaille L’Arbre Illuminé Palette the most beautiful luxury blush palette and Smashbox Create & Transform Eye, Lip & Face Palette for all their makeup needs!
Home fragrance may not be the most personal gift but it’s an easy gift which works for couples as well as for those people you’re really struggling to buy from. Jo Malone is always a stunning gift, these Molton Brown reed diffusers are a great pick as is this new Elemis Soothing Glow Candle.
For anyone after a little relaxation after a busy year I have some fabulous picks! There are two sleep sets with Sleep Sprays which I love equally; This Works Sleep Set and Neal’s Yard Beauty Sleep Bed Time Collection- both amazing! I also spotted this Silk Slip Sleep Mask which is a lovely luxurious sleep related gift for anyone of any age.
I love a bit of Philosphy at Christmas time and I can’t wait for this evenings bath where I’ll definitely be using this Christmas Cookie Shower Gel which would also make a great gift! Alternaticely for a bigger gift this Philosophy Pure Grace Body And Fragrance Gift Set smells amazing!
I love gifting skincare and usually pick the brand which I know the person really loves. My top pick would be this Charlotte Tilbury The Gift of Goddess Skin Travel Kit as it’s a luxury gift made more affordable as it’s a travel set. It’s great for anyone that wants to trail Charlotte Tilbury Skincare or some that does travel a lot. Another two great kits are the Elemis Brilliantly Beautiful Set and the Liz Earle Route to Radiance set which has a great selection of products.
Fragrance is a great but tricky gift to give and I would try to stick to something I already know the person loves or something similar which is why sets are great. You can get them something they already love with an extra body cream too such as the DKNY Nectar Set or Nina Ricci Luna set. Equally special edition or new variations of fragrances are nice alternatives such as Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Limited Edition or Juicy Couture Glace if you know they like the originals. However if you’re looking for something new my current favourite is Glossier, Glossier you- I’ve been getting so many compliments on it and I love it!
Really hope that was helpful for any of you last minute shoppers and more importantly I really hope you all have an amazing Christmas.
And I’ll be back Boxing Day with the best Boxing Day sales!
