Yay! It's gift guide season, who doesn't love this time of year right?! Mine are going up a little late this year as I just haven't found the time but there's still a few weeks before Christmas if you're searching for some gift inspo. I've got a couple of lovely brand bits to share and then, as always, I've curated a big old list of goodies below for you to have a good browse through. Here's some great picks for those ladies in your life...
Sanctuary Spa offer some beautiful gift sets that are pretty much the ideal gift for any lady in your life. With loads of different options from mini manicure sets and sleep mists to scented candles and body treats - there's so much to choose from! The bits that I got sent to try are the Jar of Treats and the Night-Time Sleep Mist. These are perfect stocking fillers or secret Santa gift for the £10 and under mark. The Jar of Treats is £10 and you get a collection of the classic faves including the body wash, bath soak, body scrub, wet skin moisture miracle & a body puff all encased in a beautiful keepsake jar that you can keep on your bathroom shelf. A bargain if you ask me. The Night-Time Sleep Mist is just £6 and is the perfect little size for popping in a stocking or putting in a self curated pamper kit.
Molton Brown are a cult brand when it comes to self-care treats and everything they do smells insane. They've brought out a limited edition collection just for Christmas 2020 called Juniper Jazz and I can happily tell you that it doesn't disappoint! Just like the name would suggest, the packaging is super jazzy and definitely makes for the perfect Christmas gift to a loved one. It's a lovely fresh, woody and musky scent with hints of berries that will leave you coming out the shower smelling a dream! I personally received the Bath & Shower Gel, Body Lotion and the Single Wick Candle. I love a good shower gel and body lotion but the candle is definitely my fave. You guys know how much I love a beautiful candle.
I always think a few Lush treats come in as gorgeous treats for birthdays and Christmas. The best bit about lush is that you can wrap a bath bomb, bubble bar or a chunk of soap and you can smell it before you've even unwrapped it - dreamy right?! I recently treated myself to some new bits and I'd highly recommend the Rose Jam Shower Gel, Sugar Plum Shower Bomb, Hippo Bath Bomb and the Golden Pear Soap. They all smell amazing!
Fragrance is always a winner as a gift too, I can't think of anyone who doesn't wear perfume? My personal favourites at the moment are Jo Malone and Diptyque. Both do some absolutely gorgeous scents and the bottles are dreamy too, perfect for having on display. Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt is easily my most worn scent lately and the big 100ml bottles last absolutely ages. It's such a unisex scent too so if you're buying for your girlfriend/wife then you can share - winning.
For makeup/skincare bits, Bobbi Brown is a firm favourite of mine and I love absolutely everything, you can read more about their Christmas collection in this post. For skincare I'm really loving buying luxury bits for less from Beauty Pie. This site is subscription based but you can either sign up for just the month to get your gifts sorted or you could even gift someone a yearly subscription to it. Either way, their products are amazing. To understand how it works a bit more, you can read more about Beauty Pie here.
Another brand I love for gorgeous gifting is Elizabeth Scarlett. I work with them regularly and I just fall in love with everything I receive. It's the most beautiful brand with such stunning designs. From eye masks to makeup bags, to travel pouches and handbags, they have everything. My personal favourite at the moment and on my own wish list is the Sun Goddess Eye Mask. Beaut!
