So teen daughter is no longer teen daughter but a fully fledged grown up who is writing an absolutely brilliant beauty blog. She is not only a total beauty addict, she is also something of an expert and is studying to be a make up artist. As someone who knows a lot about fashion but next to nothing about beauty, I trust what she says and every product I’ve bought on her recommendation has turned out to be indispensable.
She has recently posted a Christmas gift guide which is just too good not to share, especially if you are stumped for ideas for the younger women in your life. So over to you Flo…….
Whether it’s for you, your mum, sisters or friends (or you want to cheekily direct your significant other to what you want!) I have you covered with both luxurious and cute gifts to buy this Christmas.
CHARLOTTE TILBURY LUXURY PALETTE- THE VINTAGE VAMP- £38.00
These Charlotte Tilbury makes are the most gorgeous little things you could give someone- especially someone who loves makeup. They come in 9 different colour combinations and they are all so pigmented and beautiful. The whole Charlotte Tilbury experience is so luxurious, that if you want to buy someone a really special gift this year- this is perfect. Choose a colour combination based on what you know they wear and they will be seriously happy!
This one in ‘Vintage Vamp’ has the perfect colours for the winter/fall seasons.
HAPPY PLUGS MARBLE HEADPHONES- £20.00
These are a really cute gift for music lovers (and obviously anyone who’s obsessed with marble- aka me). With a really gorgeous marble and gold design they would make a lovely stocking gift or an extra gift for a gadget or phone this year.
DIPTYQUE CANDLE- £42.00
My obsession with Diptique candles is forever ongoing. They are so luxurious and a real ‘treat yourself’ kind of purchase an are a perfect gift for someone you care about and really want to spoil. They come in a variety of different scents so make sure you know what kind of smells they like before you purchase- Selfridges and SpackeNK sell them so pop into their stores to smell before you buy.
INSPIRING QUOTE CARDS- £12.00
I love wellness gifts. Whether it’s a life planner, a cookbook, nutrition diaries, or sleep therapy products I think getting a gift that really benefits your life and your health really makes all the difference. I love these inspiration quotes from Kikki.K (a planner brand I mentioned in my ‘Best Planners For Organisation Lovers’ post) because they really make a huge difference to your surroundings. I love seeingquotes around my room to give me inspiration throughout the day and I have even framed a few of these in a cute collage. This is such a lovely gift for someone who might be away from home or at University to give them that extra motivation and love in their life.
ESSIE GEL NAIL VARNISH- £9.99
I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love a good Essie nail varnish. They are trustworthy and amazing every time, and I was so excited when I saw they were releasing a new gel varnish line. These are amazing stocking fillers because they’re so cute and really useful. They are great to get salon perfect nails at home without spending loads of money- so for anyone who is constantly at the nail salon,would be a perfect gift.
REN FLASH RINSE 1 MINUTE FACIAL- £32.00
Ren is an amazing skincare brand which uses only 100% plant and mineral based ingredients. They have a whole range of products but one in particular that I have tried and tested is the Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial. Think of it as a super quick spa facial, that energises the skin and leaves it feeling firm, toned and smooth. This is a lovely gift for those who like to pamper themselves at home
NEOM LONDON CANDLE- £30.00
Neom is another lovely wellbeing brand that sells the most beautiful candles. My favourite being the ‘Lavender, Jasmine & Brazilian Rosewood’ as it makes your entire room (and hallway) smell so gorgeous. Like the Diptique candle these are more of a special treat and again it’s good to choose a favourite scent
MISGUIDED PINK SATIN PJ’S- £28.00
For some reason I always get new PJ’s every christmas. I feel like it’s such a cosy season that everyone wants cute lounge and night wear around this time of year. I absolutely LOVE these satin pink PJ’s from Misguided and I think that they would make such a lovely gift for those who love a good lazy lounge wear set.
HUDA BEAUTY LIQUID MATTE LIPSTICK- £18.00
Huda Beauty is a brand that true makeup junkies will know of. It is a new-ish cosmetics company created by makeup extraordinaire Huda Kattan. She created a huge line of liquid matte lipsticks which are some of the best I have ever tried. These are a gorgeous present because a lot of people still don’t know exactly where they can get these from as they’re so high in demand. There some beautiful colours so perfect for everyone!
CUSTOM COORDINATES NECKLACE FROM ETSY- £28.94
I think personalised gifts are really special, as they really show you’ve made an effort to think about what you’ve bought. These Custom coordinates necklaces can be a really personal gift, as they can have a really special meaning (a place you both love, your house etc). Some are really expensive as they’re solid gold, but if you don’t want to spend too much money – this one from Etsy is beautiful and only £29. Such a unique and personal gift that everyone is sure to love.
