PJs are an essential part of Christmas – after all, how are you supposed to sit comfortably watching Christmas films after dinner when you don’t have an elasticated waistband? ASOS’ Cactus PJs combine a very cute print with some seriously good lounging fabric so you’ll be comfortable for hours in these beauties. Add in a bottle of Copperhead Gin (just look at that bottle!) and you have yourself one seriously good Christmas.
Fragrance is always a good gift to go for and one that’s super easy to pick up! I wrote about Michael Buble’s By Invitation fragrance a little while back as I think it nicely merges the celebrity scent trend with a grown up feel. For Christmas, Michael has launched special gift sets, so you can get an extra treat (body lotion/body wash) alongside your fragrance, all for the same price as just the fragrance alone. You can find them at The Perfume Shop, who also still have next day delivery.
Viktor & Rolf’s Bonbon has also been given a special Christmas makeover with a beautiful rose gold bow. It’s very festive, very luxe and definitely a dressing table must-have. Similarly, Gucci have released a Platinum edition of their Guilty fragrance (one of my all-time faves). It has the same mix of floral notes with warm amber at the base and I think is such a classic scent that everyone will love.
For the makeup addicts, you really can’t go wrong with MUA’s Luxe Lip Lacquer gift set. It’s a great budget-friendly option and contains five different shades of matte effect liquid lipstick. There are four different colourways available, so plenty of choice for those who prefer brights, nudes or a mix of the two. Laura Geller’s Baked Gilded Honey Illuminator is also a must-have in my eyes – it adds radiance to the skin effortlessly and works well with every skin tone.
If you prefer something more pampering, then look no further than the Aromatherapy Associates Star Jewels. Inside you get three of their luxurious bath and shower oils, in Deep Relax, De-Stress Mind and Revive Morning scents. DHC’s Beauty Bento Box is perfect for skincare lovers. The Japanese brand has SO many great products it’s hard to narrow them down, but this cute little kit takes four of their top-sellers and packages it all up in a very kawaii way. You get a mini Deep Cleansing Oil, blotting papers, Mild Soap and two sets of Revitalising Moisture Strips for Eyes £13.50.
I couldn’t resist including at least one pineapple - I know lots of you love them as much as I do! Laura Ashley’s silver pineapple candle holder feels very expensive, with a quirky touch to it that I adore. It’s designed for taper candles, so would look great on a dining table – definitely a change from your usual centrepiece! £22
