Christmas Gift Guide: Over £30

The last in my Christmas Gift Guide series and of course I've saved the most luxe until last. This time I'm talking my Christmas Gift Guide with the budget of over £30. Some of the most beautiful products and funnily enough... I just want them all. 

I'm going to start with the makeup lover again and Sisley have got some beautiful new additions to their range this year. The Sisley Phyto-Ombre Glow Eye Shadow in Golden* is perfect for the Christmas season. I think it might be the most beautiful gold eyeshadow I've ever seen. It can be applied for a subtle wash of colour or built up into something a bit more intense. The Sisley So Intense Eyeliner* is a great partner to the shadow. It's an easy to use pen liner and my current go-to. The packaging feels super luxurious and I love that. I've always wanted to try Make Up For Ever and I'm sure any makeup lover would feel the same. The Make Up For Ever Cult Make Up Set* is the perfect starter kit for this. It includes all of the products that you'd have heard of from the brand and is homed in a gorgeous makeup bag. The Joan Collins Compact Duo* is also gorgeous. The packaging is what makes this for me as it's super gorgeous and makes applying your lipstick or topping up your powder that bit easier as it's all included in this handy compact that you should be proud of pulling out of your handbag. 

When it comes to beauty at Christmas, I think it's lovely that you're gifting someone with something that can help them to have a little pamper and the next set of products I'm talking are those that are perfect for this. Starting with having a luxurious bath and I think this is one of the most exciting products I'm talking as it's so so stunning. It's the Aromatherapy Associates Ultimate Bath Jewels set* and not only are the products themselves incredible but the packaging is so gorgeous. It's like a vanity filled with a tonne of bath oils for so many different occasions. These are incredible and whether you pick this set up, or something smaller you just need to. It really is luxury at its best. Another great option for this is the Paul and Joe Luxurious Body and Bath Collection*. This set includes bath salts, body soap and body butter and not only are the products great but the packaging is stunning - but of course, it's Paul and Joe so I'd expect nothing less. My favourite body butter of the moment is a product thats absolutely blown my mind... and it's had a festive makeover. I'm talking the Kiehls Creme De Corps Whipped Body Butter in collaboration with Peter Max*. This smells incredible, I literally want to eat it and the product sinks in like I've never seen before. It's a beautiful luxe product that makes a great gift for Christmas. Onto hair and I've got two sets from Paul Mitchell that I wanted to mention. The Paul Mitchell Because You're Brilliant set* is a gorgeous luxe hair set for anyone with coloured hair as is the Paul Mitchell Exquisite Repair Gift Set* - these are both incredible and the packaging is gorgeous. A beautiful treat for Christmas indeed. 

Home fragrance again is some of my favourite things to both give and receive at Christmas times. It is what it is, a beautiful candle or reed diffuser but there's just something so exciting about receiving a  super luxe one. It's not often something you'd pick up yourself so getting your hands on it at this time of year is ideal. My absolute favourite is definitely the Neom Organics 3-Wick Christmas Wish Candle* - this scent is so luxurious and so festive. I am so in love with it. Another festive scent is for sure the La Montana Winter Oranges candle*. This is such a strong scent and so incredible. You don't need to burn this for it to be giving off a scent and I love that. I want to be able to smell my candles and this one most definitely does that. If you're looking for something that isn't festive however and can be used all year round then I'd most definitely recommend the Ted Baker Miami Reed Diffuser* - this is super luxe, and the scent is incredible. Also, how beautiful is the packaging? I love the flamingo. For someone who struggles to relax, or just anyone that you think deserves too, finally I think the Aveda A Gift To Melt Away Stress set* is ideal. It includes a candle, cleansing oil and a body cream. It's in gorgeous packaging and Aveda is such a known brand that just about anyone will love it... I've most definitely got a happy home for this to go to. 

I hope my gift guides this year have helped a little - have a lovely Christmas and let me know what you pick up and get!
