It’s this time of year again, where has the time gone?
One of the most common things that’s said this time of year is ‘I don’t know what to get Her’ as some people can be a pickle to buy for, me included. I’m rubbish at providing ideas for family members; I’ll come up with one thing such as a new pair of vans and then get stuck there. I know deep down that if I was gifted any of the classic Christmas presents I would be happy, I’m not fussy, I just don’t know what to suggest.
If you’re trying to buy for a girlfriend, friend, cousin, sister, etc that sounds like me then look no further:
A decent mirror for doing your make up with can be such a game-changer, it allows you to easily see what’re you doing whilst the mornings are still dark and gloomy. The LED lighting means you’re going to be able to tell if your foundation is equally spread all over and your eyeshadow is actually blended.
Dermologica Special Cleansing Gel – Dermologica £33.00
If you’re going to buy a skincare product for someone for Christmas this is hands down the one to be going for; I used it for a few years now and it’s a staple in my routine. The cleanser gently rinses away any toxins to leave your skin feeling smooth and refreshed.
L’Occitane Hand Cream Trio Collection – John Lewiss £21.00
A hand cream gift is such a classic; it’s one you just can’t go wrong with. This particular set contains the three different scents, Cherry Blossom, Shea Butter, and Almond Delicious; of which all are 30ml. The beauty of buying L’Occitane products is the amount of detailing that goes into the hand cream packaging which makes it a more luxury product; perfect for your mum or grandmother.
TYPO Letter Candle – ASOS £12.00
This is one of the more inexpensive products on the list; the candle comes in a variety of different letters which enables it to be a more personalised gift. The candle is scented of coconut lime and has a burning time of 35 hours. I would say this one is a pretty safe bet for a secret Santa present.
Phone Case – Skinny Dip £15.00 approx
Another inexpensive option is a phone case, as long as you know what kind of phone the person you’re buying for has, this one is a winner. It’s pretty common that people get new phones for Christmas too so if you know someone has bought then one this is a fab tag along present. Skinny Dip does a huge variety of phone cases from Disney based, to ones with avocados and unicorns on to hard shell protective cases.
Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Mask – Superdrug £7.32 currently reduced from £10.00
I know personally, that hair care products aren’t something I go out and buy as often as I should so I’m always delighted when I receive them as a gift. This particular Shea Moisture mask is an intensive treatment to repair dry and damaged hair whilst leaving it with a shine from the argan oil it contains.
Pink Beleaf In Yourself Slogan Socks – New Look £2.49
The cheapest item on my gift guide. You have to ask yourself is it really Christmas Day if you don’t receive a pair of novelty socks.
I’d love to know what’s on your Christmas list this year, you might even give me a few ideas to add onto mine!
