Christmas Gift Guide for Beauty Lovers

Friday, 20 December 2013

Although I've already done a little Christmas gift guide post, I thought I would go all-out in the beauty area and put together some of my picks for Christmas presents for beauty lovers out there. Whether you're looking for a last-minute present to get your beauty-loving bezzie or simply looking for a bit of Christmas list inspiration, I've put together a little selection of some of the things I think make perfect gifts for the festive season. I've also done a little video featuring the gifts below with a couple more thrown in, so I'd love it if you could give that a watch too! 
First up - fragrance. Now, I personally think Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a perfume present or three, so this Vera Wang Be Jeweled Giftset* is the perfect gift for any fans of Vera's fragrances, or simply if there is a girl with magpie-like tendencies in your life. This smells absolutely amazing and comes with a 30ml bottle of perfume, a shower gel and a body lotion. If you're a fan of Vera Wang's Princess, you will adore this sweet, sugary fragrance. Also, Fragrance Direct are taking orders for Christmas until midday on the 23rd, so you've still got plenty of time to order. 

 Of course, Christmas also means that the more practical gifts are always in abundance. But practical can be pretty too, right? Definitely, if this pinker-than-pink electric toothbrush is to go by. Exclusive to Tesco, the pink Oral B 600 Electric Toothbrush* is every girly girls dream - afterall, Oral B are amazing when it comes to toothbrushes and I honestly wouldn't go for any other brand to look after my teggies. I love that it comes with a travel case too, perfect for a girl on the go.

 A gorgeous beauty gift bag is always a great gift for your mum or you big sister at Christmas time, and this one from Yon Ka* is suitably roomy and full of really lovely skincare treats. I'd recommend checking out what skin type the person who's gift your getting is first, and making sure they don't have any allergies, whilst trying not to give the game away! I actually think this bag would make a pretty good clutch bag too.

An oldy but a goody, you really can't go wrong with some Olay Beauty Fluid to slip into someone's stocking this Christmas. A hit with mums far and wide, Olay's Beauty Fluid is suitable for all skin types and this one in particular is gorgeous for sitting on your dressing table, as the limited edition lacey design is seriously pretty. The best thing about this? It only comes in at £4.99 - an absolute bargain that is suitable for all budgets. 

 I love this cute little idea from Origins. Being a big fan of the brand, I was keen to see what treats they had on offer for Christmas and they didn't disappoint. If you know someone who's a big skincare fan, or you're having a girly get-together and want to have some cute little gifts for the girls then this is ideal. These sweet little 'Surprise Twists'* come with two mini products and a headband, making them ideal for the pre-Christmas party pamper session. They come in packs of six for £30, making them a teensy fiver each - bargain!

Finally, the ultimate indulgent treat for Christmas, this Estee Lauder Zodiac Compact is absolutely stunning and makes the perfect gift for any luxe beauty lovers. It's also lovely as it's personalised - there is a different design for every star sign - mine is Virgo, as shown above. The powder is brilliant and although the compact is really tiny it makes such a lovely thoughtful gift. I think the Leo design is my favourite, forever wishing I was born a few days earlier! 

So there you have it, my run-down of some perfect gifts for beauty lovers this Christmas. I hope this has helped anyone looking for a last-minute Christmas gift or even a treat for yourself before the festivities kick off!
