Here is another Christmas post that I’ve really been looking forward to sharing with you all. I absolutely love Christmas so much.. almost as much as I love a good gift set! I thought this would be a great post to share with you all, I also have a menswear gift guide which will be going live this weekend and is packed full of ideas on gifts for boyfriends, brothers and dads.
I’ve included some gift sets from some of my favourite beauty brands such as Soap & Glory, Elemis, Nails Inc and Dove. The gift sets that I have chosen to feature run from just £3-£50 so there is something for everyone including all ages ranges. When purchasing gift sets i’d 100% recommend shopping in Boots as you can make the most of their special Christmas offers such as 3 for 2 on all sets – and if you’ve finished your Christmas shopping then it’s always a perfect excuse to stock up on beauty treats whilst they are on offer.
I love receiving gift sets for Christmas, especially for everyday beauty products such as cleansers, tan, bath products and make up because it’s always the stuff I’m running out of and you can never have too much. I always find when I’m picking up products for myself throughout the year I don’t tend to splurge as much but it’s always so lovely at Christmas time being treated to sets that you wouldn’t or couldn’t afford to buy yourself.
A little bit about each set:
1.) This Nails Inc set includes 5 mini polishes which are all perfect for the festive season, including gorgeous red shades alongside some glitter. Prices at only £16 it’s an absolute steal and also a great way to try each product before you purchase a full size polish.
2.) Mini bath and hand gift set is the perfect travel/handbag size products for anyone on the go, what better products to carry around than the stylishly packaged Orla Kiely ones?! The products contain lavender and geranium so are perfect for helping to de-stress.
3.) This great set by Pur Minerals is a fab pick for any make up beginners as it contains key basic make up items such as a lipstick, blush, eyeliner and contour set. It’s great for experimenting with and also great value for the products it contains.
4.) Soap & Glory sets are always a winner with me as their products just smell so incredible, this set is focusing on the face and de-puffing eyes so it would be a great set for anyone you know that’s stressed or in need of a pamper. The ‘Puffy Eye Attack’ eye gel has caught my eye and I’ll be looking into giving that a whirl!
5.) This adorable little bath tub filled with Baylis & Harding goodness is the perfect stocking filler! It looks cute and also contains candy cane scented products which makes the set all the more festive. You will receive a peppermint body lotion, strawberry swirl lip butter and cherry candy cane body wash… anyone else died and gone to scent heaven?!
6.) Heaven for any tan lover… and it doesn’t get much better than St.Tropez. The set is a real gem for it’s value as you get a mini tan enhancing body polish and moisturiser, a bronzing mousse and tanning mitt. This kit is also perfect for first time tanners as they can trial the products to see what they prefer before purchasing full size.
7.) I think this Baylis & Harding gift set is really great value for money and is something that my mum or nan would love to receive. The set contains sweet mandarin & grapefruit foot lotion & foot soak crystals along with a fluffy pair of cream faux fur slippers. The perfect set for someone who loves a pamper evening every once in a while!
8.) This fab hair set from Charles Worthington is designed to help add volume to your locks, the set contains volumising shampoo, conditioner, backcomb dust and a comb. I’m a huge fan of Charles Worthington products and also attempt so many products trying to add volume to my hair so I’d have to say that this is a set that I’d be happy to see under my tree this Christmas.
9.) You can’t ever really go wrong with a Dove gift set, we all need new bath products in our life and what better brand to be coming from than Dove. I regularly use their shower products as they all smell so great and are just so affordable, this set is also coming from a brand that any age will love. In this ‘Happniess’ set you will receive Dove fine silk bath, silk body cream, silk glow body wash and a luxury candle.. ooh la la!
10.) Another great set from Soap & Glory yet this time it’s tackling body rather than face. This set contains some amazing products and all of which would be used on a daily basis (well I certainly would anyway!). This set contains a body wash, body cream, body butter, body polisher and a hand cream. Soap & Glory products can sometimes work out fairly pricey if buying them all individually but this set could be yours for just £10 so snap one up whilst you can I say!
11.) This set from Bare Minerals is a great pick for any make up lover. The set is a great starter foundation kit as it contains a primer, brushes and a foundation of your choice. The set is customisable to each customer so you know if who your buying for prefers a particular type of foundation/powder you can tailor the set to them. You can chose between original, matte or spf foundations so you are guaranteed to find something for everyone.
12.) This Baylis & Harding candle diffuser set is scented ‘lotus flower’ although there are other options that this gift set is available in such as ‘cherry blossom’ and ‘oriental lily’. My mum is a massive candle lover and you would rarely walk into our house when there isn’t a candle burning, so I know a set like this would be perfect for her and something she would get lots of use out of.
13.) Last but by no means least is this gorgeous Elemis gift set which is perfect for any luxury skincare love, the set will get you a maximum moisture day cream (full size), rehydrating cleanser, a soothing apricot toner and a skin buff. This set is part of the skin brilliance range and is designed to refresh, hydrate and nourish the skin, something that all girls all ages would appreciate I feel – especially during the cold winter months!
My favourite sets have to be 1 (Nails Inc), 4 (Soap & Glory), 11 (Bare Minerals), and 13 (Elemis), which set/s would you love to receive this Christmas?
