Can we just take a moment to freak out about the fact that this time next week it’ll be Christmas Eve! What the actual? How fast has December whizzed by? One minute, I’m asking if it’s too soon to watch ELF and now the big day is next week. I’m going to sound eighty but time really does fly by these days. In case you’re like me and have forgotten exactly what day it is and are now suddenly panicking about Christmas shopping, I have some last minute beauty gifts which will sort you out leaving you time to sit back and of course watch ELF and all the other classics.
If you’re looking for presents for your sister, Mum, BFF, Mother in Law etc… these are all presents that I am sure will go down very well next week.
Let’s start with some gift sets, try places like Lush (especially for younger relatives) or Boots for brands such as Soap and Glory, their big all in one kit which is only £30 until midnight tonight (hurry go go) is always the perfect for present for anyone. I think any female relation of mine would love to receive this, so if you’re looking for something easy, this is exactly the ticket. Or you know, pick one up for yourself and you’ll be stocked up for the rest of the year! Sanctuary Spa also do lovely gift sets that my Mum loves, as well as The Body Shop of course. I always try to find a discount code for them online and you can usually save yourself a bit of money.
Bath treats are always a winner come Christmas, yes they may seem a little boring and un original but who doesn’t love a good pamper now and then? This year I’m loving these cute Philosophy 3 in 1 ; shampoo, bubble bath and shower gel ranges. I love Christmas Cookie and Snow Angel, perfect for this time of year and for anyone who wishes it was Christmas all year round (please say not just me!) They also have a Hope For The Holidays skincare set which is perfect for someone like your Mum as it has a trio of products including overnight moisturiser, moisturiser and eye moisturiser.
Whilst we’re talking about skincare, although buying someone skincare is pretty difficult and I would recommend maybe not attempting, unless you know their exact faves/skin types. But with that being said, I would recommend something universal such as the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish sets, these are pretty much suited for any skin type probably bar very sensitive. It’s a lush make up remover which I absolutely adore and have now got my sister hyped about it too. There is some proper pretty sets such as this Christmas special one and this cute mini Sweet Orange and Mint flavour too.
Then there’s make up and nail polish, I’d stick to neutral colours for presents as they’re quite safe and everyone needs neutral make up every now and then. Think the Naked Palette, or this blush palette from Benefit which consists of all their cult blush shades such as; Dandelion, Rockateur, Coralista, Sugarbomb, Hoola and highlighter Watts Up. If you really feel like going all out then why not look at Charlotte Tilbury’s make up range, full of seriously luxurious make up that anyone would adore in their make up bag. I’ve recently added the Nocturnal Cat Eyes set to my collection as well as this amazing Colour Chameleon pencil in Champagne Diamonds which is so pretty and of course the glittery gold colour is perfect for New Years Eve parties. Other picks from her collection would be The Bronze & Glow, Eyeshadow Palettes and the Lipsticks. All the heart eye emojis. Also Essie nail polish always, always goes down well! It seems to have sold out on Fragrance Direct annoyingly, but you can find the full range in Superdrug and Boots, but also try TK Maxx too! Topshop have also got cute Christmas make up presents this year too. This lip colour called Get Me Bodied is so pretty and wintery.
So if you’re heading out for beauty Christmas gifts this weekend, make sure you head to Lush, Boots, Superdrug, TK Maxx, John Lewis and Debenhams, Then online look at Feel Unique, The Body Shop, Fragrance Direct and Charlotte Tilbury. Make sure you check the delivery dates though to make sure everything arrives on time! 🙂
So there is some beauty ideas that hopefully will help with some Christmas ideas! Have you done your shopping yet?
