With less than a week to go my gift guides will be finishing tomorrow, eep! I genuinely can’t believe where the time has gone, there’s still so much to do! Today is my last day at work so I’m planning to finish off any last minute gift shopping and wrapping over the weekend so I’m all ready for the big day!
If you’re looking for a special gift for someone then I’ve rounded up my top presents over £25, a little pricier than usual but worth it all the same. You can still order online at most stores before tomorrow and still receive in time for Christmas so make sure finish any online shopping that you need to by then.
Benefit Fun Sized Flirts – £29.50: As you know I’m a huge, huge fan of Benefit and this set contains miniature versions of my favourite products including They’re Real Mascara, POREfessional and That Gal. Considering the amount of products you get in this set I think it’s great value for money, the mini products are ideal for someone who travels a lot as you know they will get full use from them! The set includes the following products:
– POREfessional Mini 7.5ml
– They’re Real! Mini
– BADgal Lash Mini
– Instant Comeback Facial Serum Mini

– Dandelion Mini

Stay Don’t Stray in light/medium
GHD Curve Classic Curl Tong – £110: This is a slightly pricier present and something that I would consider to be a main gift! With GHD I’m a firm believer that their products are worth every penny, pricey? yes, but they do the job and more. GHD’s are renowned for their longevity and any product you buy from them, expect it to be a keeper as it’s not going anywhere for a long while!
This tong has a 26mm medium barrel so you can create classic curls and volume for any length hair – they create a great messy wave for girls rocking a shorter do. The tongs also have a 30 minute sleep mode which is great in case you head out and forget to turn them off, you can rest assured that they will do the job for you. These tongs would make a wonderful gift and they are packaged so beautifully with rose gold detailing which screams luxe to me, an investment worth making!
Avon Master Collection – £28: My first thoughts on this product were regarding the price, I couldn’t quite believe this set was only £28 considering the amount of products you get in this set! In this set you receive 55 eyeshadows, 10 lipsticks, four blushers, three applicators and a built in mirror – this product is great for someone who travels and doesn’t like to carry too many products as it has everything you could need in one!
Too Faced Beauty Wishes and Sweet Kisses Christmas Palette – £32: This Too Faced set is a handy little carry compact containing three cocoa powder infused shadows from the best selling Chocolate Bar eye shadow collection, the matte Chocolate Soleil Bronzer and the luminous Snow Bunny Bronzer which is perfect for a fresh winter glow. I’m a huge fan of Too Faced products as they are so uniqiue and this this palette would make a wonderful present.
Caudalie Instant Radiance Gift Set – £45: The perfect gift for a luxury skincare lover, this set contains a 30ml Vinoperfect Serum and a 30ml Beauty Elixir, this set comes beautifully packaged and is worth £56.50 so you save 20% on purchasing the gift set. I have been a long standing fan of the Vinoperfect serum as it’s great for brightening skin and leaving a more even skin tone, I apply it at night time before bed and love using this product. The Beauty Elixir is an absolute favourite amongst most beauty bloggers and can be used to refresh skin and tighten pores.
Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Gift set – £54: I adore Marc Jacobs fragrances and get so excited each time a new one is released, I have to say that the Daisy Dream for me has to be the prettiest one yet as the packaging is just so lovely! This set comes with a 75ml body lotion and shower gel so everything in this set will be used up in a heartbeat! I think this set is great value for money and would love to see one under my tree this year.
Urban Decay Black Magic 24/7 Double Ended Pencil Set – £27: This set is perfect for any party go-er as the waterproof liners last 24 hours, containing four black eyeliners – each with a slightly different tone. These products are great for creating a smokey eye over the festive season, especially adding a little glam over NYE!
The set contains; Zero + Demolition (zealous black cream + deep brown matte), Black Velvet + Smoke (rich, smoky black matte + deepest gray matte), Perversion + LSD (blackest black matte + navy shimmer with bright turquoise micro-sparkle) and Black Market + Tornado (charcoal black satin + dark eggplant pearl).
Jurlique Calendula Essentials Christmas Gift Set – £78: I have been using the Jurlique Calendula range for quite a while now and have seen amazing improvements in my skin. The Calendula range is targeted for redness and helps skin to feel restored and hydrated, my favourite product in the range has to be the serum, I apply it most nights and couldn’t be without this product in my skincare range.
Although this set may seem pricey to some you save over £30 as the set contains; Calendula Redness Rescue Calming Mist 100ml, Calendula Redness Rescue Restorative Treatment Serum 30ml and the Calendula Redness Rescue Soothing Moisturising Cream 40ml.
