Roger + Gallet Fleur D'Osmanthus cracker – beauty crackers are definitely a big thing this year, with dozens of different ones on offer. Roger + Gallet’s feature a 30ml Fleur D’Osmanthus hand cream which is enriched with shea butter and apricot kernel oil for long-lasting hydration. £6
Lip Smacker Coca Cola tin –you certainly won’t be running out of lip balm any time soon with one of these tins! Add to the fact that they all come in various fizzy drink flavours and you’ll be licking your lips for hours to come. £9.99
The Body Shop Owl sponge – I love to see what format the annual Christmas sponges from the Body Shop will come in each year. We’ve previously had reindeer, snowmen and lots lots more. This year’s owl sponge is just as cute and one I reckon all ages would love to see in their stockings. £4
Soap & Glory In The Bag – there are six mini Soap & Glory products included inside the generously sized makeup bag, covering everything from Hand Food right through to their Glad Hair Day shampoo. It’s a great gift for any Soap & Glory addict and is also included as part of the Boots 3 for 2 offer, so fantastic value for money! £18
This Works Sleep+ cracker – for anyone that struggles to get a good night’s sleep, you NEED some Sleep+ Pillow spray in your life. A few spritzes of this before bed and you’ll be falling asleep in no time. This cute little cracker contains a 10ml bottle of Sleep+ and is a great way to test it out before committing to a larger size. £12
Diego Dalla Palma I Love You palette – with four velvety soft eye shadows and a blusher inside, this is the perfect palette to pop in your handbag for makeup on the go. DDP make such lovely products but often get overlooked and I’d highly recommend checking them out in one of the M&S beauty halls across the country. £25
Tweezerman Petite Tweeze set – Tweezerman really do make THE best tweezers in my opinion. This lovely gift set features a classic slant tweezer and also a fine pointed pair which are perfect for those tiny little hairs that always seem to try and escape! A set of these will last you for years, and would be a great gift for any beauty addict.
Personalised Nutella – Nutella with you name on means you don’t have to share as far as I’m concerned. Add to the fact that you get a personalised gift for under £5 and it’s a massive win all round.
Emma Bridgewater Joy scented candle – this very festive candle will scent the whole room with warm notes of red roses, cloves and cinnamon and burns for an impressive 55 hours. I love the Christmas print on the glass jar – definitely a keeper once the candle has finished! £18
Ghost perfume baubles – Ghost are definitely winning when it comes to perfume minis this year. They’ve wrapped up deluxe samples of many of their fragrances into baubles, so you can hang them on the tree or wrap them up for a lovely little sticking filler. At just a fiver each, I think these look a lot more expensive than their actual cost.
Real Techniques Deluxe gift set – brushes from Real Techniques are always a good bet; they’re one of my favourite makeup brush brands on the high street. This Deluxe Gift Set features three face brushes and two for the eyes, all in an exclusive high shine metallic finish. There’s also a small metallic clutch bag included which can be used to keep your brushes in. Two of the brushes are exclusive to this set (angled highlighter brush, tapered foundation brush) and three are from the permanent line (multi task brush, base shadow brush, fine liner brush). £30
Balance Me Heavenly Hands Duo – Balance Me’s hand creams are a must have for me in the winter as they’re one of the few things that stops my hands from drying out in the cold weather. This handy duo features handbag sized tubes of the Super Moisturising and Rose Otto creams. £10
Sienna X Christmas Cracker – cute packaging can transform an everyday product into a nice little stocking filler, which is definitely the case with this cracker from Sienna X. It’s filled with a mini can of shimmer spray and a sachet of their gradual fake tan, both of which are perfect for the party season. £5
Wonder Woman Lego Keyring – if you’re on the hunt for a secret santa gift that’s a little different from the norm, I reckon these Lego keyrings will appeal to big and little kids alike. My personal favourite has to be Wonder Woman, but there are dozens to choose from ranging from Star Wars characters right through to super heroes. £2.99
Ciate Mini Liquid Velvet Lip Trio – these matte finish liquid lipsticks from Ciate come in three versatile shades (one which is exclusive to this set) and a long-wearing, matte formula. £16
The Body Shop Feel So Good cracker – this one’s a must for any fans of the Body Shop shea butter range! Inside this cute little cracker are a 25g shea butter soap and shea lip butter. The perfect pair!
Inika Lip Tints – Inika’s lip tints are super hydrating, tinted balms that give a lovely wash of colour across the lips. They’re also vegan, halal, organic and cruelty-free. My favourite shade has to be Candy, a soft nude pink, but there are three in total to choose from. £15.50
The Body Shop Lippy Star Wand – five different lip butters, all in fruity flavours. The magic wand packaging will definitely appeal to a younger audience or fellow big kids like me.
I Love... The Weekender – I Love… do an amazing range of budget friendly gifts, but The Weekender has to be my favourite. Be quick, as it’s currently half price at Superdrug for just £15. Inside the vanity case you’ll find: 500ml Cherry Almond Bath, 200ml Cherry Almond Butter, 100ml Cherry Almond Spritzer, 75ml Raspberry & Blackberry Hand lotion, 200ml Raspberry & Blackberry Shower Smoothie. The Cherry Almond range is a Christmas launch and smells like a cherry bakewell. OMG.
