Christmas, the most wonderful time of the year is approaching at a crazy speed so I present you with a gift guide to help you find the perfect present for the girlfriends/wives (for any men that may be reading this!), mums, nan’s, sisters, aunties or friends in your life. I wanted to include gifts for men but I struggle with this so much (seriously, it’s a challenge to even find my boyfriend something!) so I thought I’d stick to what I know, which of course includes makeup, skincare, haircare, fragrances and accessories for the home! My favourite things. Half of this gift guide includes my own personal wish list so I hope you enjoy and find something amazing for that special someone!
For The Makeup Junkie
Some perfect picks if you are buying for someone who loves makeup. Stila’s lipsticks are enriched with Vitamin E and avocado oil giving them a rich texture and matte finish, who wouldn’t love these colours? The beauty collection by Laura Geller includes 6 products including a primer and a shimmering blusher, the perfect all-inclusive set for creating a Hollywood star look.
For The Girl Devoted To Her Locks
If your girl gets her hair coloured or uses heated appliances, a decent set of hydrating hair products may be exactly what she needs to get her locks looking healthy and glossy. The Pureology set has an amazing discount so act fast! I have only ever used GHD hair straighteners since the tender age of 16, and I can’t see myself ever straying elsewhere to be honest! The new and improved Platinum styler sounds like it’s the most innovative pair of straighteners yet with a heat up time of 20 seconds and sensors that set the best temperature for the styling technique, helping to reduce the amount of breakage! – Amazing!
For The Girl Who Is Skincare Obsessed (the obsession is real!)
If you have no idea which makeup or haircare products she needs, maybe skincare is a safer bet? The radiant skin trio by Mario Badescu brings together the ‘Best of Badescu’ to take the skincare regimen to the next level, whilst the travel kit by Charlotte Tilbury contains essentials for glowing, baby-soft skin. I would honestly be happy with any of these skincare products!
For The Girl Who Loves to Accessorise
Moving away from beauty and into fashion. This may be a bit easier if you are really unsure what to buy. You cannot really go wrong with an on-trend checked scarf or some beautiful jewellery from Monica Vinader. This is a U.K brand that creates jewellery ‘that you can wear easily everyday’ and is an amazing mix of fine jewellery and fashion.
For The Perfume Admirer
A perfume is always appreciated in my books, especially when someone has picked it out especially for me, I think it’s really thoughtful! Here’s a selection of floral scents (Chloé Love Story and Gucci Bloom), clean and fresh (Marc Jacobs Daisy White) and oriental (Diptyque) – which is also unisex!
For The Homewear Enthusiast
The last category you could consider is homewear. It’s also quite a safe option, again if you are really not sure what to buy her. I absolutely love candles (like most girls) and could never have too many. Or, why not get her a pretty trinket box for keeping her jewellery safe!
