the christmas gift guide: for the lazybones

Bluebird Tea Co Hey, Sugar Plum & Snowball - £6
Lush Cupcake - £6.95
Conditioner - £25

Nights in will forever be the superior to nights out in my book. I like to pamper myself into full relaxation mode and will happily invest plenty of dollar in aiding me to do so. Giving the gift of face masks, candles and bath products to set the scene for at-home spa days are the way to go and I just love the thought of allowing someone to create a little extra me time for themselves.

Lush have it down with the huge range of fresh face masks on offer that are tailored for every skin type and concern, I can't imagine being more thrilled than upon receiving a little box filled with a couple of skin treats by them. On the theme of face masks, Nügg have the perfect stocking filler in this set which includes various types of mask at an inexpensive price. 

What's a pamper session without a scented candle? A poorly planned out one that's what. If your gift recipient is a fan of musky, slightly masculine scents with a hint of sweetness, I wholeheartedly recommend checking out Tonka from Laboratory perfumes. The packaging is chic and understated and will be sure to leave anyone thinking you're both on trend and thoughtful. 

One of my very favourite sets that I've come across this year is this shower gel collection by Korres. My shower is always stocked up with a couple of full sized bottles and these would be ideal for both someone new to the brand or for a keen traveller who's always in need of luxury minis. This is definitely one of those one for me and one for you gifts that you'll end up treating yourself to, too. 

Another one of my top picks is the Skin Perfecting Set by Dermalogica. I have a couple of family members who love skincare but would never invest over a certain amount and find a gift like this truly means the world to them. Giving the gift of skincare is always a wise move. The same goes for the Kiehl's Hand Salve which would be cherished especially in the colder months. 

I have a full review on the Bluebird Tea Christmas collection coming up on my lifestyle blog, but couldn't miss up the prime opportunity of featuring them in this post too. I'm an absolute tea addict and have no qualms about pushing it onto other people too. Long live high quality tea. 

As much as I personally love to receive my favourite brands as gifts, I equally enjoy being given the opportunity to check out new ones. I hadn't heard of O&M haircare since after having a browse online and was drawn to their minimal packaging and fell in love with their natural ingredient ethos. The detangling spray in particular has quickly become a staple in my haircare routine.
