Hello everyone! Hope you’re well ✨ I’ve been so busy the past few weeks with university and the run up to Christmas so I’ve not had a lot of time to blog but I have the morning off so I thought I’d write a Christmas gift guide 🎅🏼 (aka all the things I’m loving right now)
So without further ado, here’s my Christmas Gift Guide, packed full of stuff I’m loving, gift ideas and everything guaranteed to make your favourite people smile.
Right now, I’m loving this White Cardamom candle from Crabtree and Evelyn. It’s smells amazing and comes in the most beautiful packaging as you can see above. This candle is on the pricier side (currently retails at £42) so I feel like this would be something you would buy for someone who loves candles because it smells divine and the quality is incredible. Personally, I think this would be the perfect gift for a parent or best friend because it adds a touch of luxury and everyyyone loves a bit of that.
If you don’t wanna splash out, Yankee Candles are a personal favourite of mine and their holiday candles are to die for!
Right now, I’m currently using the ‘Christmas Magic’ and ‘Candy Cane Forest’ Yankee Candles are they’re SO nice! I think they’re the perfect stocking filler (who doesn’t love a candle?!)
2. SKINCARE GIFT SETS
I also got sent a gift set from Sanctuary Spa and it is the stuff of dreams. It’s called ‘Stay home & Unwind’ and honestly, it’s everything I’ve ever wanted in a gift set.
Sanctuary were also kind enough to send me the ‘ultimate indulgence’ gift set which would be a lovely gift for family and friends alike. Also, how CUTE is the packaging?!
Inside the ultimate indulgence gift set there’s a bath soak, body wash, hand cream and body butter. I’ve *obviously* tested them out and can honestly say they’re so luxurious. Goals? Goals.
Recently, Nails Inc. sent me some amazing Christmas gift sets and honestly, I’ve been tempted to keep them for myself.
One of my favourite things I got sent was this stunning makeup bag ✨ it’s a really nice size (you could easily fit all of your makeup in this) and its HOLOGRAPHIC. This would be a perfect gift for a friend (or yourself) 🤷🏻♀️
When it first arrived, it was packed full off nail polishes and lipsticks:
The lipsticks are an amazing quality! When I tried them out the other day, the lipstick lasted around 4 hours before I needed to reapply which was really impressive. The smaller lipsticks all retail at £8 and the two longer lipsticks are £10 so these would be a lovely stocking filler.
Secondly, it was also filled with these nails polishes! I’m obsessed with everything nail related so I was so excited to try these and was not disappointed! The colours I got sent are colours I usually wear (I prefer to wear darker nail polish) and in particular, I love the ‘Caffeine Hit’ nail polishes because they literally have caffeine in them… this is not a drill! I currently have some on and my nails literally smell like coffee.
Ok but how incredible is this ‘Sparkle Like A Unicorn’ beauty set?! It has everything inside you could ever want for a cute night in (lipstick, face mask, nail polishes) and I’m obsessed with the packaging 🦄
Personally, I think this would be the perfect gift for a best friend ✨
On the topic of best friends, you can never go wrong with face masks! I got sent two different face mask gift sets, the first being ‘The Fairytale Of Good Skin’ and I really love the packaging design.
There’s also a really cute story which includes the names of all the different sheet masks which is a really cute detail. ✨
The second face mask gift set I was sent is this lovely ‘Joyful Skin’ wreath gift set. I love how it’s designed to look like a wreath because it’s festive and so cute! I think that this would be the perfect gift for anyone that loves anything skincare related because it’s fun and Christmassy.
It’s so pretty and even more sparkly in real life! This is a really sweet gift that is guaranteed to not disappoint! It’s also quite large and there’s a lot of sparkles inside ✨
4. HAIRCARE GIFTS
Moving on, a lovely brand called Grow Gorgeous Hair recently sent me some of their products to try and they would be a perfect Christmas gift choice.
This full bodied volumsing shampoo is INCREDIBLE. After one use my hair felt so much more volumised. I have naturally curly hair, and this shampoo really helps to add an extra bounce to my curls. Also, some shampoos leave my hair feeling really dry and knotty whilst this does the total opposite! My hair felt so soft. I’m obsessed.
Secondly, the full bodied volumsing leave in conditioner is amazing! My hair needs conditioner otherwise my hair can feel brittle, and after just one use of this leave in conditioner my hair felt so soft. Honestly, I really can’t emphasise how amazing my hair felt (and how good it smelt) and this brand is one I’m going to be using for a long time to come. I really recommend trying these out, and if you’re thinking of buying for someone for Christmas, they have some lovey Christmas bundles currently for sale!
