Over the past few weeks I've put together a series of gift ideas for Christmas - today sees the final installment with lots of gifts that all come in at £50 or less. If you're on the hunt for the perect gift for a close friend or relative (or something for your own wishlist!) I hope you'll find something from this selection.
Avon Master Collection Makeup Palette* - a must-have for makeup addicts, this palette has dozens of eye shadows, blushers and even lip colours inside. £28
Inika All About Eyes collection* - Inika are the perfect choice for organic or natural beauty lovers. This mineral makeup set contains five products all for the eyes and is a great introduction to the brand. £49.95 (worth almost £80)
L'Occitane Arlesienne EDT 75ml* - this is the newest fragrance from cult French brand L'Occitane. It's a light, easy to wear floral fragrance and would make a lovely gift for all ages. They've launched a whole selection of products in this scent, as well as a gift set, so there are plenty of options if you fall in love with it. £39
Dermalogica Our Favourites gift set* - five of Dermalogica's top products in handy travel sizes. This would be a great gift for both Dermalogica addicts and newbies alike. It's a great way to try the brand without having to invest in the full-sizes and I'm pleased to see my favourite primer included! £30.15
Caudalie Parfum Divin gift set* - Divine Oil is what Caudalie is probably most well know for and this gift set contains a full-sized 50ml bottle, as well as their amazing Divine Fragrance which launched earlier this year. The perfume smells just like the oil, so the two worn together will leave you smelling good all day long. £39
Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream gift set* - inside this kit you'll find a full-sized tube of Skin Smoothing Cream, plus travel sizes of Intensive Eye Repair and Soothing Eye Makeup Remover. The gift costs the same as the Skin Smoothing Cream alone, so it's great value as you get to try two other products for free. £37.50
Aromatherapy Associates 'The Weekender'* - this handy travel kit is a great way to try out luxury brand Aromatherapy Associates without a high price tag. There are four travel-sized products inside plus a good sized toiletry bag, so this is a great option for travellers, or just those who are keen to try more from the brand. £24
Cargo 'Let's meet in Paris' eyeshadow palette* - Cargo are a lesser known brand than some of the usual big hitters, but their eye shadow palettes definitely rival the likes of Urban Decay. 'Let's meet in Paris' features a plethora of gold, copper and jewel-toned shadows and is guaranteed to put a smile on the face of any makeup lover. You'll find Cargo in larger Debenhams stores in the UK, or via the Debenhams website. £35
Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Favourites* - this is a duty free special, so if you're heading through an airport soon, you'll want to add this to your shopping list! It features 3 of the cult 8 Hour Cream products from Elizabeth Arden and at the cost of £29.60.
S5 The Calm Collection* - S5 skincare is something I definitely recommend trying out - it's a little pricey, but seriously effective. The Calm Collection features three key products for sensitive skin or those suffering from redness. They also have kits for skin in need of vitality or rescuing. £30
Micro Nail* - for all you manicure fans out there, the Micro Nail is a great solution. It's great for buffing nails and giving them a serious shine, so if you work somewhere that doesn't allow you to wear nail polish, or you're giving your nails a break, you can still get a glossy finish in minutes. £29.99
Real Techniques Nic's Picks brush collection* - the latest brush kit from Real Techniques, these are affordable, great quality and a makeup bag must have. £29.99 from Boots or Superdrug.
Aromatherapy Associates Inner Strength Candle* - a highly scented aromatherapy candle, this is designed to focus the mind when you need a little bit of inner strength. Just a few hours burning time will give off the most amazing scent, so if you know someone in need of a little relaxation, this would be a great gift to put under the tree this year. £35
Ghost Deep Night perfume* - Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a new perfume and this seductive scent from Ghost is a great pick. It's more of an 'evening' perfume and one that feels quite grown up, so would be a good option for mums, aunts or older sisters. From £24.50
Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette - let's face it, I can't imagine anyone would be disappointed to receive an eye shadow palette that smells like chocolate! Just make sure you give them a real bit of chocolate too so they aren't tempted to give the palette a nibble... ;) £39
Elemis Top to Toe Treats* - at £29, I think this gift from Elemis is great value. It features 5 products for face and body from the luxury spa brand, all in really generous travel sizes. The Jasime Rose Milk Bath smells amazing, so you might want to ask for one of these sets yourself!
Malin + Goetz Votive Candle set* - I've previously reviewed Malin + Goetz's Dark Rum candle, which I have big love for. This votive trio contains 3 70g candles in Vetiver, Dark Rum and Tobacco scents and will smell amazing dotted around the house (if you can bring yourself to burn them, that is). £34
Wahanda Gift Card* - spa website Wahanda now offer gift cards, so if you're unsure what to buy then these will make a great gift idea. The recipient will be able to choose from thousands of spa treatments up and down the country, at hundreds of different locations. Gift cards start at £25 and go all the way up to £250.
OFAT Nail Polish trio* - Only Fingers & Toes are a new nail polish brand that launched in the UK earlier this year. They definitely hit the luxury end of the market at £16 each, but are seriously glossy and apply like a dream. Find them in Harvey Nichols. £42 for the trio set.
Naked On The Run - I couldn't not include my favourite new Urban Decay palette in this gift guide! Naked On The Run is Urban Decay's version of a Naked travel palette - there's a lip gloss, mascara, eye liner, blusher, bronzer and six new eye shadow shades all in this handy case. It's limited edition, so don't leave it too long before getting yours - you won't regret it! £37
Cheryl 'Stormflower' perfume gift set* - Christmas is a great time for stocking up on perfume - I love the fact you can get so many great gift sets that are usually the same cost of buying the perfume alone. This is Cheryl's first scent and is a mix of sweet and floral and I think would be a great option for younger girls. £23.95
Mark Hill Wild Waver Hot Wand* - this limited edition styler from Mark Hill is perfect for creating those tousled, loose wave styles without a tight curl in sight. It's super easy to use and the hot pink colour definitely appeals to the girly girl in me! It's also half price in Boots at the moment so is on sale for the bargain price of £29.99.
Will you be putting any of these on your Christmas list?
