Christmas Gift Guide

I wasn't planning on doing a gift guide post since there seems to be lots around at the moment but whilst doing some searching for presents I found some things that I hadn't seen blogged about so I thought it would be useful to share some ideas.
I'm a huge Soap & Glory fan and they always bring out some amazing gift sets, I love the idea of this one for someone who hasn't tried the brand before. It's called the Small Wonders Mini Hat Box and costs £10; I think that's a great price for what you get and it comes in a lovely box which also makes it easy to wrap! I've also included two sets from The Body Shop which is another one of my favourite places for gift sets. The two i've picked are great stocking fillers. The first being the Strawberry Cupcake Gift which include a bath lily, shower gel and a mini heart soap. I think this is a cute little gift and only costs £5. The other set is the Animal Lover Soap Gift which includes animal soaps; a turtle, elephant and rhino as well as a bath lily. This set also only costs £5 and would be great for children. Next is a few skincare sets; Origins have some amazing sets and deals online at the moment. The one i've picked is the Origins Mask Marvels which includes two of my all time favourite masks, Clear Improvements Mask and the Out of Trouble 10 Minute Rescue Mask. As well as those it includes the Drink Up 10 Minute Mask. For £29 you are getting some great masks for a great deal. Finally is a great set from REN Kits for Normal Skin which you can also get for different skin types and is a great way to try out REN skincare and the samples are a good size. For £13 I think this is a really good deal and would be great for any skincare lover. 

Another idea I blogged about a few months ago would be to make a Personalised Beauty Box. I think this is a great way to make a more personal present because it would be filled with things you know the person loves. You could include beauty products as well as a favourite CD or film. 

Something else I have done in the past is to buy gift sets and split them up to give to different people. This is good if you are on a budget or looking for stocking fillings. It is also good if the set includes a product the person may not like and you can give it to someone who would like it.

I hope this post was helpful for anyone who is stuck for ideas on what to buy people for Chirstmas. Feel free to share any of your ideas in the comments.

  5. I've persuaded two people to get the hat box for people they're buying for, as a starting set, it's fab

    I've just got my 'Best of all' set whikst it's in the boots star buy for £27 (ends tomorrow and is out of stock on the website ) which has a big bag and 9 full sized products in - If you're a big fan you probably already know about it, but for those who don't. :)

    (It has righteous butter, clean on me, smoothie star lotion, peaches and clean, sugar scrub, hand food, heel genius, a mother pucker gloss and a thick and fast mascara - Should keep most collections topped up over the year :D )
