the christmas gift guide | part four

The last of my beauty Christmas gift guides is here! It's been a lot of hard work trying to get all of these up well in time before Christmas so I hope that some of the ideas come in handy. If you haven't already checked out the rest of my gift guides just click here.

Yankee Candle Christmas Gift Set - £25.99: I'm ridiculously obsessed with Yankee Candles, there is a whole wall full of them at my local garden centre and I could quite happily spend a small fortune all at once. These two are both beautiful scents, Snow In Love is ideal for a the daytime as it's crisp and fresh whilst Christmas Eve is a cosy candle for the evening. The scents of both are spot on for my liking and I love how Christmas Eve isn't of an overwhelming cinnamon scent like most Christmas candles!


Mavala Nail Polish Baubles - £4.50 each: These little baubles make the most perfect stocking fillers or look equally as pretty tied onto the tree. I love both of the shades of nail polish too and think they are just ideal for the party season. 



Aveda Hand Relief & Foot Relief - £19 each: If you are searching for a gift for someone a bit older then a luxury hand cream or foot cream are worth a thought. I always think it's nice to give something that will come in really handy (get it.. handy..) that perhaps someone wouldn't be able to afford to treat themselves to normally. 


Latest In Beauty The Glamour Beauty Edit Box - £14.95: How amazing is this beauty box? I bought this one for my Mum as I was so impressed at all of the products included and know she will get good use out of everything, not a dodgy lipgloss in sight! Everything comes presented in a luxury black box too which makes wrapping extra easy.



Elemis Pro-Collagen Perfection Set - £70: This Elemis set is filled with anti-ageing goodies and is ideal for anyone needing a skincare overhaul. Elemis have so many amazing gift sets this year and if you are after that special gift for someone then you need to check them out (they have great options for men too).


M2 Beauté Perfect Eyes Kit - £135: I've saved the most expensive luxury set until last, so run away now if you don't want to be tempted. The set includes a lash comb, eye make-up remover sachets and the famous eyelash activating serum. I can confirm that the eyelash activating serum works brilliantly an pretty much doubled the length and thickness of my lashes after I'd been using it for a few months, I'm going to put up a full review soon but trust me this baby is a miracle worker in a tube.

the christmas gift guide | part three



I hope you are all enjoying my Christmas gift guides so far, the day itself is creeping closer and closer as always and I'm hoping that I'm not the only one with most of my gift buying still to do! I'm going to try to squeeze one last post in after this for all you last minute shoppers, I also have a great guide coming up for my lifestyle blog too.

Lauren's Way Tan Teasers - £19.95: I'm a big fan of Lauren's Way tanning products and I love this cute set filled with mini versions of the most popular products along with a tanning mitt. It's an ideal set to introduce someone to tanning products with or for a fake tan pro to use the minis as travel versions.


& Other Stories Cotton Care Gift Set - £40: For a larger skincare gift these & Other Stories products come presented in a chic white gift box which even includes a cotton towel. I've had a go with the Body Lotion which smells divine and gives the skin a lovely silky sheen. I absolutely adore this set and how the understated packaging looks so on-trend in my bathroom, definitely a big thumbs up. 


Sanctuary Weekend Get-Away Collection - £18: This is a wonderful little gift set for anyone on a budget yet still wanting to give a luxurious gift, it's perfect to give a friend who loves a good old pamper session. Sanctuary also have a 3-for-2 offer on their website at the moment so keep that in mind if you have lots of people to buy for! 


Burt's Bees Tips and Toes kit - £14.99 & Kissable Colour Set - £11.99: Burt's Bees always have wonderful gift sets around this time of year and these two are certainly no exception. If you are to be a bit cheeky and treat yourself to something then make it the kissable colour set, the luxury lip balms give a hint of colour which make a great (and more hydrating) alternative to lipstick.


Eve Lom Kiss Mix Star - £16: This is one of my favourite ever lip balms, it's super hydrating and leaves a minty fresh flavour on the lips that lasts really well. Given it's on the pricey side but you won't find anyone who wouldn't love this as a gift.


Nuxe Travel Kit - £9.90: I've already mentioned this Nuxe set many times on my blog before but wanted to give it a feature in my gift guide as I think it's such a fabulous set, plus it's at such a great price too!


Nourish Argan Beauty Collection - £24.95: When this set from Nourish arrived through the door I have to admit that I swooned like a madwoman, the products are just set out so beautifully and the packaging has such a luxury meets Christmas feel. I've already had a try of the Argan Skin Rescue Oil and for that alone this set is an absolute must-have, the products each have a gold, frankincense and myrrh theme too.

the christmas gift guide: part two

Theirry Mugler Alien Christmas Gift Set - £42.50: Alien has been one of my favourite fragrances for many years and I know many people who love it too so this boxed up set would make a lovely gift for them. It's a great way to introduce someone to the fragrance too as it includes a full sized and travel sized version of the body lotion.


Nails Inc. Best Dressed Nails Collection - £16: This set of mini nail polishes makes such a great stocking filler for anyone who's into their nail polishes, there are different finishes and effects meaning they make a change from the regular shades that everyone already has.

Liz Earle Limited Edition Cleanse and Polish - £19.75: You will all know by now how much I love the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish and have done for years, making this limited edition Christmas themed set one of the best gift ideas that I've seen thus far. I don't know a single person who hasn't been converted from using face wipes to a cream cleanser and this makes the ideal gift for anyone in need of revamping their skincare products. 


Cheeky Rude-olph Nail Paint Gift Set - £12: This nail polish sets includes the perfect shades for the party season and comes in at just at the right price for a little gift.


Yon-Ka Absolute Hydration Set - £80: Yon-Ka is by far one of my favourite skincare brands and if I were to recommend the best skincare set that is no-frills and will really do a great job on your skin it would have to be this. It's also perfect for this time of year to rehydrated and treat dry skin.


Argentum La Potion Infinie - £147: This is the showstopper product of my gift guide, never have I had such an expensive skincare product in my possession before! If you have a big budget and really want to go all out in treating someone with an extra special face cream then check this beauty out. The chic packaging and black glass jar are certain to impress along with all of the anti-ageing benefits of the cream itself.


Part three will be up very soon!
