Gift Guide 2018

The Christmas season is finally upon us, and if you haven’t started thinking about gifts already, you’ll probably want to start. I absolutely love buying gifts – I’m pretty sure it’s my one true talent – but I know it’s not everybody’s cup of tea.

To help out, I’ve compiled a list of things that I feel would work well for a lot of different people – whether you love them or hardly know them and just got stuck with them in Secret Santa, I’ve got a gift for everyone.

BOUCLÈME PERFECT PAIR HAIR SETS – £26*

Shampoo and conditioner possibly isn’t something you’d think of buying someone for Christmas – but who doesn’t need extra shampoo? These sets are super cute because they come as a ‘perfect pair’, so whether you need a little help styling your curls or just want some extra hydration, Bouclème has the set for you!

I’ve been trying out the Perfect Waves set for a couple weeks now and I absolutely love it – it’s amped up my waves but minimised the frizz! I really like that they have no sulphates, silicones or parabens too, meaning they’re actually good for your hair! If you’re looking for a unique gift for a curly-haired friend, definitely check out Bouclème.

CHARLOTTE TILBURY BAR OF GOLD HIGHLIGHTER PALETTE – £49

If you have a friend who’s into beauty, I can guarantee that they’ll love this. I don’t think there’s anyone out there who doesn’t love highlighter, and this palette contains some of the most beautiful highlighters I’ve ever seen – there’s even a shade for every skin tone! 

I’ve spoken so much about this highlighter palette because the formula is just that incredible – if I didn’t already own it, I’d be so excited to receive it as a present. Plus, it’s Charlotte Tilbury – who wouldn’t get excited at that?!

FAT FACE SOCKS IN A BAUBLE – £6*

When in doubt, socks are always a good option. I know everybody complains about the whole ‘socks as a gift’ thing, but seriously, who doesn’t need socks?!

These are especially cute because, not only do they have a Christmas print, they’re packaged in a bauble! That is just so adorable to me. Plus, at only £6 these would make a perfect Secret Santa gift.

FAT FACE CASHMERE BEANIE – £39*

Nothing says luxury like cashmere, and this hat is genuinely one of the softest things I’ve ever felt. I strongly believe you can never have too many hats, and a grey beanie is a staple that everyone needs.

Everybody needs to be warm and cosy during winter, and the colour and style of this beanie suits absolutely everyone, so you really can’t go wrong!

PETER THOMAS ROTH READY SET DRENCH KIT – £41

This is the perfect gift for anyone into their skincare – for the price of the Water Drench Moisturiser you also get the serum and the cleanser! Everybody needs a little extra hydration during winter, so I’m sure this gift will be well-received.

It’s also a great gift for anybody who wants to get more into a skincare routine, because this has everything you need in one cute kit!

BEAUTY BLVD GLITTER LIPS IN ‘RUBY SLIPPERS’ – £12.50*

This is such a fun little gift, and so perfect for the festive season! I mean nothing says Christmas like red, glittery lipsticks. 

Any friend who loves makeup is sure to be a fan of this, and it would make such a cute stocking stuffer. These would also be perfect for a Christmas party, you could even hand them out to guests as party favours!

CHILLY’S BOTTLES (FROM £20)

Chilly’s bottles are so popular right now – what’s cooler than keeping your drink ice cold and saving the planet (reduce your plastic, people). These bottles are so awesome, I’ve had mine for almost a year now and I really love it.

You can now completely customise your bottle by choosing any colour lid, bottle and getting it engraved, making it the perfect personalised gift.

AQUIS LISSE LUXE HAIR TOWEL – £30*

A hair towel sounds like a weird gift, but hear me out. This towel dries hair so quickly without needing any heat, and also is way less damaging than a normal towel. It also minimises frizz, what more could you want?

I’ve been using this towel for about a week now and it genuinely is really amazing, I’ll never use a normal towel on my hair again. This is a gift that everyone needs in their life – even if they don’t know it yet.

 

So that’s my gift guide! I hope you guys enjoyed this post and found it useful, let me know in the comments which gift was your favourite. See you next time,
