Christmas Gift Ideas

Christmas Gift Ideas

Whilst it may only be November, after a recent trip to Space NK and Instagram scrolling, I couldn't handle my excitement for beauty christmas sets any longer. So off I roll with my top Christmas Beauty presents…

1. Candles can never go a miss at Christmas. Every year I love to see what scents (and packaging) Diptyque will be introducing. My favourite out of the trio this year is Resin Scented Candle. However, if £45/£26 is a bit too much for a candle then Space NK's Shimmering Spice Candle is half the price, and the smell is wonderfully festive. And look at that Christmasy packaging!!

2. I'm always a sucker for a Christmas Edition eyeshadow palette and this year Bobbi Brown need a round of applause for their collection. The Warm Glow Eye Palette is rather darn beautiful. They also have a cute Mini Eyeshadow Palette which would be a great stocking filler. Both feature gold shimmery eyeshadow goodness which is a makeup essential at Christmas. Bravo indeed Bobbi.

3. Now this is what I would like under the Christmas tree . The Nars Digital World Lip Pencil Coffret. Five of their famous lip pencils in one beautiful Christmas theamed box. Do I need to say anymore. Perfect.

4. If you're thinking of asking for something extra-luxurious this year then I think the Laura Mercier La Petite Pâtisserie Soufflé Body Crème Collection  fits the bill perfectly! It's rather pricey but you do get all of the body creme's I'm miniature form. What a perfect way to end Christmas day with a bath and one of these moisturisers.

5. The Charlotte Tilbury Mini Lipstick Charms are up there this year in top Christmas beauty gifts. Three mini lipsticks in the beautiful rose gold packaging, what's not to love?! At £29 this is a lovely way to share the joy of Charlotte Tilbury…!

6. At £32 I'm not sure if everyone will be having one of these around the dinner table, but the Jo Malone Christmas Cracker is a great way to treat someone to some Jo Malone mini treats. Each features a moisturiser, a shower wash and a perfume. 

7. The perfect Christmas scent for me has to be Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium. Its such an unusual scent in that it's almost "woody" yet with a vanilla, sweet undertone. You really do have to try a spray of this next time you're near, it's heavenly!
