Christmas Gift Guide: Beauty Gifts and more

Next up in my Christmas Gift Guide series, I'm talking slightly more main gifts - though, really you can mix and match depending on your budget and what you fancy. I just wanted to break it down so I didn't chuck everything into one massive post. 

Let's get to it so that you can get your Christmas shopping sorted... 

Miller Harris Lumiere Doree Fragrance

When the Miller Harris Lumiere Doree Fragrance, from £75 arrived at my door I just couldn't believe how beautifully it was wrapped. Just look at it. I have the Lumiere Doree fragrance which is both fresh and floral with a hint of musk. I know this would be right up my Mum's street! When purchasing on the Miller Harris site, you can choose to have your products wrapped this beautifully. They are wrapped in a gorgeous Silk Scarf (that you can absolutely re-use) and a super cute pom pom. I don't think I have ever seen anything quite so beautiful! 

Roger and Gallet Magnolia Foile Extrait De Cologne

If you know someone that is really into their fragrance, then the Roger and Gallet Magnolia Foile Extrait De Cologne 500ml splash, £150 is a seriously beautiful gift. Not only is it the biggest fragrance I have ever seen, but it truly is one of the most beautiful. Both the bottle and fragrance will go down well, I promise you! 

Kiss The Moon Peace Candle

I adore Kiss The Moon and it is truly perfect for Christmas gifting as it feels so luxurious and is totally pamper worthy. The Kiss The Moon Peace candle, £38 is scented with Vanilla and Rosewood and a hint of Orange - and I swear this smells like chocolate orange. It is delicious! 

Beauty Pie Bitter Orange and Blackcurrant Candle

I have been wanting to try Beauty Pie for as long as it launched and I finally have with this gorgeous candle. The Beauty Pie Bitter Orange and Blackcurrant Candle, £14.25 for members is truly beautiful for the price. It's so luxurious and the scent is heavenly. Now just to try some of their other products...  If it's anything like this, then it's going to be great. 

Crabtree & Evelyn Poured Noel Candle

I adore getting candles for Christmas and it can be really lovely to get a festive one, but you know when it's a little too festive and it feels a bit wrong to be burning it after Christmas? The Crabtree and Evelyn Poured Noel Candle, £16 is just perfect as the packaging doesn't look like a Christmas decoration (in fact, while we're on the packaging, can we just talk about how beautiful the retro boxes at Crabtree & Evelyn look?! I am obsessed) it is just a simple but beautiful black candle. The scent is gorgeous and the price for it is great!

Angel Perfuming Body Lotion 

A luxurious scented body lotion is seriously perfect for a Christmas gift, and if you know anyone that loves the Angel fragrance then this is most definitely a no brainer. The Angel Perfuming Body Lotion, £38 comes in a gorgeous bottle and smells delicious. Perfect for putting on before a date night or a night out. 

Stila 3D Dazzle Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow Gift Set

If you haven't tried the Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid, then you must stop right now and go out and try one of these. It will literally change your life. If you are into glitter or you know someone that is then the Stila 3D Dazzle Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow Gift Set, £29 is the absolute perfect gift. In this set you get three gorgeous mini's of the famous Glitter & Glow Liquid Shadows and I seriously cannot recommend this set any more. I have tried a few of the liquid shadows on the market - but nothing beats a Stila Glitter & Glow, I promise you! 

Stila Kiss Me Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick Set

Who else loves a bold red lip at this time of year? Keeping it in tact however can be an absolute nightmare which is why I always opt for a liquid lipstick that lasts. Stila's Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks seriously last all day long so this set, the Stila Kiss Me Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick Set, £22 is ideal. It includes 3 of their lipsticks in mini size which is just perfect for popping in your handbag. There are 3 shades, 2 red (one is matte and one has a slight shimmer to it) and 1 nude. 

Lipstick Queen Kiss From A Rose Gift Set

Lip kits are really having a moment right now aren't they? There is something just so satisfying about having lip products that match perfectly to create the ultimate lip look. Lipstick Queen is absolutely nailing it in their Lipstick Queen Kiss From A Rose Gift Set, £28 gift set as there are three parts to your gorgeous red lip look: a liner, a lipstick and a lip gloss. 

HD Brows Brow Basics Gift Set

I think HD Brows was the brand that really got me into doing my brows, so this set, the HD Brows Brow Basics Gift Set, £29 is super trustworthy. It has everything inside that you need to create a simple and natural but dreamy brow. Inside you get a retractable brow pencil and a clear brow gel to set them in place. This is exactly how I like to put my brows together as it is so low maintenance so this set is perfect! 

Look Good Feel Better The Makeover Brush Set 

Look Good Feel Better is a global charity supporting women and the visible side effects of Cancer and this makeup brush set has been created by then. The Look Good Feel Better The Makeover Brush Set, £24.99 includes four brushes and a travel set - and do you know what, these brushes are seriously great and it's all for a good cause. 

Aurelia Skincare Night Time Indulgence Collection 

Aurelia Skincare is one of my all time favourite skincare brands and I adore mini products, so when I saw their Aurelia Skincare Night Time Indulgence Collection set, £70 I knew I just had to include it. This set is the ultimate skincare gift set for anyone who loves to travel (or someone looking to try out some new products from the brand) as it includes 7 of their products in mini size. Inside you get some of my all-time-favourites including the Miracle Cleanser, the Refine & Polish Balm and Revitalise and Glow Serum and some new ones, the Cell Repair Night Oil, Calming Botanical Essence, Cell Revitalise Night Cream and Repair and Brighten Hand Cream. This is seriously great, and for £70 you get £110 worth of product which is 100% worth it. 

Aurelia Probiotic Concentrate

I was actually torn where to include the Aurelia Probiotic Concentrate, £38 as it could fit well within all 3 of my gift guides but I popped it in here. This concentrate is a new favourite in my skincare regime, and I seriously want to spread the love of this around. It's a concentrate that helps to target concerns including pigmentation, wrinkles, loss of elasticity, hormonal breakouts, dullness and polluted skin  - so really it works for just about anyone. It's lightweight, so a little goes a long way so don't be put off by the small size of this. Small but seriously powerful! 

Alpha H Multivitamin Super Cream 

A good moisturiser is a great gift for Christmas and the Alpha H Multivitamin Super Cream, £45 is seriously a great gift as it helps to combat the effects of pollution. This product is a blend of vitamins and a 'Pollushield' that acts as a barrier from urban dirt and grime. It's seriously effective. 

ARK Skincare

Ark is actually a new brand to me, but after being introduced to them I am seriously impressed. I have been loving a few of the products, but if like me you are new to the brand, I'd recommend having a browse of their Christmas Gift section on their site and picking up one of the sets to give a few things a go vs trying just one product. 

Super Facialist Vitamin C Brighten Mini Gift Set

I adore Super Facialist and anything with Vitamin C is right up my street so this Super Facialist Vitamin C Brighten Gift Set, £20 is ideal. Stashed with Vitamin C fuelled skincare goodies, this is perfect for a post-Christmas skin refresh. 

Jane Scrivner Cleansing Balm 

A good cleansing balm can be hard to find, and this one from natural skincare brand Jane Scrivner is one of my favourites at the moment. The Jane Scrivner Cleansing Balm, from £33 is suitable for all skin types and is a pro elastin and pro collagen cleanser. 

Morphe 8S Stellar Impact Highlighter Palette

I mean, just look at this. The Morphe 8S Stellar Impact Highlighter Palette, £25 is serious highlighter goals. In this gorgeous (and seriously affordable!) highlighter palette, you get 8 shades perfect for so many different makeup looks. The pigment is great and it applies beautifully to the skin. I am obsessed! 

Beauty Bakerie Gift Sets

I am SO excited that I have finally got my hands on some Beauty Bakerie products and they are the perfect gift for Christmas this year for any makeup lover. The Beauty Bakerie Flour Powder Set, £40 (though is currently on offer at Boots for £16!) includes their famous Flour Powder, a powder brush and a beauty sponge. If you are looking to bake, this is seriously perfect and if you know someone who loves Instagram influencer makeup, then I'd highly recommend this. For colour, which maybe would suit more people is the Beauty Bakerie Pisa Cake Blush Set, £45 (though is currently on offer for £18) as it includes a gorgeous blush palette which is incredibly pigmented and an Eyelash Icing Mascara. Super cute packaging and great products inside too! 

Red Carpet Manicure Gel Polish Pro Kit and Polishes

If you know anyone that loves nails, I'd 100% recommend getting them a Red Carpet Manicure Gel Polish Pro Kit, £64.95 as it gives you the chance to get Gel Nails at home - which seriously saves on that mani pedi cash that they'd be spending out at the nail salon. There are some gorgeous shades for Autumn/Winter and I can't get enough of this.

Inika Ultimate Glow Set

The Inika Ultimate Glow set, £74 is filled with everything you need to create the perfect base. In the lovely makeup bag, this set is stashed with a Liquid Foundation, Baked BB Cream, Illuminator, Foundation Brush and also a Mascara for long lashes. If you know someone that loves a glowy base, this is a great gift!

Laura Geller The Ultimate Kajal Longwear Eyeliner 

Hello eyeliner heaven! The Laura Geller The Ultimate Kajal Longwear Eyeliner set is perfect for anyone who loves a bold eye. You get every shade you could possibly need in this gorgeous set to create a long lasting and impactful eye. 

Ted Baker Row of Bows Mini Trio Christmas Gift Set For Her 

This gift set is seriously cute. The Ted Baker Row of Bows Mini Trio Christmas Gift, £26 features three little fragrances in this super cute packaging. They smell lovely and it's a perfect gift to put under the tree this year for a loved one. 

Kiss The Moon Dream Bedtime Bath Salts Jar

Say hello to the ultimate relaxation. The Kiss The Moon Dream Bedtime Bath Salts Jar, £25 (though currently £20!). For anyone who loves baths, this is a gorgeous gift that smells incredible and will look gorgeous on the side of the bath tub. 

Trilogy Glow Up Set

I adore Trilogy and usually include include them every year. The super cute Trilogy Glow Up Set, £36 includes a Rosehip Oil Antioxidant +, Cream Cleanser and a Night Cream - and is everything you need to add a bit of radiance to your skin. 

Sensse Silicone Facial Cleansing Brush  

A beauty tool is a great gift for Christmas and the Sensse Silicone Facial Cleansing Brush, £39.99 most definitely has the wow factor without breaking the bank. This cleansing brush gently exfoliates the skin while you cleanse, meaning you have a deeper cleanse without any extra effort. It helps to add radiance to the skin and the packaging is just super cute!

The Espa Winter Comforts Gift Set, £40 is a serious all-in-one pamper in a box for the winter time. It is perfect if you are looking to nourish your skin and scalp. This set includes a Skin Rescue Balm, Pink Hair and Scalp Mud and Overnight Hydration Therapy.

I adore Origins Skincare and their Ginzing range is one of my favourites. The Origins Get Up and Glow Gift Set, £30 is stashed with the collection and is perfect to add to your morning skincare routine to help wake up and get ready in the morning. Plus, it smells incredible! 

Origins Warm Ginger Wonders Set

I had actually forgotten about the Ginger range from Origins until I was browsing the site looking for the Get Up and Glow set link but OMG, it is seriously incredible. I don't think I have ever smelt anything so delicious. The Origins Warm Ginger Wonders Set, £40 includes the Body Oil, Body Wash, Body Scrub, Body Cream and a cute little candle. Seriously incredible!

The Gatineau Aquamemory Replenish Collection, £55 is the perfect gift for any skincare junkie that suffers from dry or dehydrated skin. It contains a face cream, eye roll on, hydrating mask and a brush to apply it with. It feels so luxurious and for £55 you get £138 of products.

Is it even Christmas if there isn't a Sanctuary Spa set under the tree? My pick of their gift sets this year is the incredible Sanctuary Spa Sumptuous Selection, £18. It includes one of my all time favourite products from the brand, the Wet Skin Moisture Miracle - a product EVERYONE should have in their shower and a selection of other delicious smelling products from the brand. LOVE this one. 

OGX Hair Care Gift Sets

OGX is absolutely one of my favourite haircare brands ever. I have used the brand for years and I have spoken about it on here and on my social for god knows how long. They have some gorgeous gift sets out this year and I'd highly recommend them. The OGX Hair Care Oh Christmas Hair Set, £8.50  is stashed with mini's perfect for travel.

I blooming love Zoeva products. Their quality is seriously great and the products are to die for.

All are seriously gorgeous and you get SO much for your money in this set. Trust me, you'll be mind blown. 

L'Occitane Gift Sets

L'Occitane is having a serious moment for me RN. I just can't get enough. I'd seriously recommend basically anything from the brand but my top picks for Christmas is the Best of L'Occitane set, £69 - it's a seriously great intro to the brand and is essentially the ultimate pamper in the box. It's stashed with some of my all time favourites including the Almond Shower Oil (literally dreaming of getting my hands on the 500ml bottle of this as I use so much, it's seriously incredible and you get a very generous size in this set) and the Lavender Foaming Bath. A seriously great gift! If you are looking for something a little smaller, the L'Occitane Christmas Bauble, £12 is perfect. There are 4 different scents to choose from, I went for Almond as it's my favourite but they are all great and include 3 mini's.

The ultimate skincare pamper and the products are seriously beautiful. I have used the Moringa Cleasning Balm on many an occasion and the collection as a whole works beautifully together. 

Omorovicza Gift Sets

Omorovicza have absolutely nailed it this Christmas. From the beautiful packaging, to the luxurious gift set options, I have fallen hook, line and sinker for so many of the gifts they have on offer this year. My two top picks would be the Omorovicza Miracle Facial Set, £85, a skincare trio that works to tone, refresh and rejuvenate the skin - and this includes their incredible Queen of Hungary Mist Spray, which if you haven't tried, you most definitely need to. The other favourite from their offering this year is the Omorovicza Moor Mud Set, £55. This is the perfect skincare set for a deep cleanse and includes a number of cult favourites including their Ultramoor Mud Mask, Thermal Cleansing Balm, Refining Facial Polisher and the Cleansing Mitt. Seriously recommend.

Crabtree & Evelyn Sweet Treat Gifts 

I always thought Crabtree soley sold beauty products, but ever since finding out they sell a few other edible gifts too, they have made an appearance at Christmas most years, as not only are they super tasty but they are beautifully packaged too. This year, my top picks are the Feeling Sweet Toffee and Fudge Selection, £15 and their biscuits. It looks like the gift box I have is sold out but there are so many other options here

The Ultimate Gin and Tonic Gift From Prezzy Box

Who doesn't love booze at Christmas? This Gin and Tonic Gift Set from Prezzybox, £39.95 is so cute. It's filled with Sipsmiths Gin, Tonic and some beautiful Stilton Crackers. Delicious!
