Christmas gift guides: affordable gifts for her - part 1
EcoTools Festive and Flawless Face set – these eco-friendly, cruelty free brushes are the perfect size to use for travelling or as a handbag staple. There are five brushes included in the kit: flat concealer, buffing concealer, precise foundation, complexion blending brush and full powder brush. These are super soft and a great size and at just £11.99, great value for money.
Soap & Glory Winter Wonderhand – this set is a must have for any hand cream lover or Soap & Glory addict. With three different scents of their ever popular Hand Food (Original Pink, Sugar Crush and Smoothie Star), you’ll be left with lovely soft hands all winter long. £8
Mavala Nail Polish Baubles – it’s glittery, it’s nail polish and it’s a fiver. Need I say more? Choose from six different shades, all with sparkly finish.
Steamcream Christmas cracker – this multi-purpose moisturiser is a firm favourite of mine, and their Christmas cracker is such a cute gift idea. Inside you’ll find a 25ml tin of Steamcream, which is packed full of natural ingredients and works well for virtually any skin type. £8.95
Pixi by Petra Mini Endless Silky Eye Pen Quartette – one for all you eye liner addicts! There are four shades of liner included in this set, ranging from black through to plum, in a soft, smudgy formula that doesn’t drag across the lids. £16.50
Ghost Girl fragrance – If you’re hunting for a fragrance idea for a young woman or teenager that’s not your usual celebrity stuff, you really can’t go wrong with Ghost Girl. It’s a light, fresh fragrance from Ghost that has a bit of a summery feel to it. The fragrance on it’s own starts at about £22 but make sure you check out their festive gift sets as they have some great offers on at the moment.
Ted Baker beauty crackers – inside these cute little crackers from Ted Baker you’ll find a mini fragrance and a co-ordinated nail polish. There are two scents to choose from and at £10 each it’s a great gift for any Ted Baker fan.
Lip Smacker lip balm cane – you can never have too many lip balms. Especially when they taste like Fanta or Cherry Coke. It’s a good job it’s a multi-pack as they smell so nice you’ll end up licking you lips all day. £7
Hotel Chocolat Christmas Chorus – a bag filled with chocolate? Oh. Hell. Yes. Pralines, Snowball truffles and one of those mini slabs of chocolate that are dying to be face planted all for £12. Yum.
Balance Me Body Beautiful – for a mini body treat at Christmas try this stocking filler idea from Balance Me. This rose-scented body lotion is super hydrating and great for any winter dry patches that need a bit of TLC. £6
Laduree address book – Ladueree’s stationery range is just as beautiful as their cakes, but with the added benefit of lasting much, much longer! This beautiful address book is almost too pretty to write in, but I think it’d be a perfect gift for any stationery lover. They also have a range of notecards and writing paper which is also just as lovely to look at. £15
Ciate Paint Pot duo – these hanging Paint Pot duos from Ciate feature two co-ordinating polishes in some of their most popular shades. I love this mix of Members Only,a classic nude and Tinsel Town, a multi-tone pinky glitter. £10
Primark Disney Pyjamas – Christmas isn’t Christmas without some new PJs as far as I’m concerned and Primark is killing it when it comes to Disney designs (and a bit of Star Wars). They’re about £10 per set, and if you’re lucky, you might even find some matching Minnie Mouse fluffy socks alongside them under the tree (if you’re reading this mum, take this as a hint).
Lottie London polish trio – with the perfect mix of glossy finishes and glitter shades, these polish packs from Lottie London are one of my top picks this Christmas. The square shape also makes them a great gift for the ‘guess what it is’ game – ten points if anyone gets it! £11.99
Benefit BadGal party – if you’re a Benefit fan, they have some great gift sets this year. This handy mascara duo includes a full-sized BadGal along with a travel-sized mini to keep in your handbag. Perfect for big, ultra black lashes. £18.50
Neom Three Nights of Peace – ahh…Neom, you really can do no wrong as far as I’m concerned! I’ve already mentioned their amazing Perfect Peace candle in this post, but for a stocking filler idea, the Three Nights of Peace is absolutely lovely. It includes three 5ml bath and shower oils in their Daily De-Stress, Time to Unwind and Perfect Night’s Sleep blends. It’d also be the perfect treat to yourself as a post-Christmas shopping reward alongside a cheeky G&T. £14.95
Bagsy Pretty Cheeks – Bagsy are a new brand on the block who have recently launched into Debenhams with a bit of a bang. Their capsule range of makeup is great quality and the pretty packaging means they make lovely gifts. The Pretty Cheeks blusher is a great introduction to the brand and the creamy formula gives a soft wash of colour in two different shades that will suit virtually everyone. £16
Bare Minerals The Royal Court – my fellow pale ladies will adore this contouring trio from Bare Minerals as it’s just the right shade range to look natural, while adding depth and definition to the face. Combine this with the EcoTools brush set and you’ve got a complete winner of a gift! £25
Bomb Cosmetics Berry Christmas Cracker – inside this jumbo cracker you’ll find three of Bomb Cosmetics’ berry-licious bath blasters. These smell good enough to eat and are absolutely huge in size, so could easily be split in two pieces for extra baths. Bomb Cosmetics is fantastic value for money – this cracker is just £6.50 via Amazon!
Will any of these gifts be on your list this Christmas?
