We’re approaching the end of November and I can safely say I have the majority of my Christmas shopping done which is making me feel super organised! I’m looking forward to getting it wrapped and dished out now.
Deciding what to buy people is the hard part, I usually ask my close family if theres anything they’d like so I’m buying something useful that they will actually use. For anyone else I usually give something similar to the following…
I don’t think you can go wrong with Christmas gift sets, just about every store and every brand comes up with a set full of bath products, sprays or hand creams. Although it’s a recurring gift it’s something women always need, I love having a large collection of bath soaps and body products that last me until the next Christmas. Yardley offer a range of pretty and affordable sets that are the perfect gift if you’re stuck on what to buy someone.
Skin care products are always a great gift at Christmas, I know personally I need to look after my skin better especially this time of year but I’m so reluctant to spend much money as I always say it’s something I can live without. So I love receiving anything for my skin at Christmas time. Palmers offer some amazing skin care products and now I’m a huge fan after trying nearly all of their collection. The clay face mask is to die for. It’s incredibly soft and satisfying to cover your face in. Although I’m usually more of a fan of a peel off mask this one came off so easily with some hot water and a face cloth. The Facial Cleansing Oil is also one of my favourites has done wonders for my skin so far. My skin is very dry and dehydrated in areas so oil really helps to soften it up and stop my makeup sticking to the dry patches. Something new that I’ve recently tried for my skin is the Magn!tone Facial Cleansing Brush, It’s proven to eliminate dead skin cells and tone. I’ve heard some really great things about this product so I’m looking forward to seeing the results.
Jewellery isn’t the most safest option if you don’t know the person well. Often girls don’t have a certain type they like, it’s just one of those, if they like it they like it. I know my jewellery can range a lot in style, some pieces may be more out there while others are quite basic and delicate. However it always makes a cute little gift and one can never have too much of it. Rie Kensington kindly sent me these beautiful pieces that I was able to pick out. My favourite has to be the triangle copper necklace, it’s a super simple and classy piece to dress up an outfit.
Let me know what gifts you like giving at Christmas. I could do with some inspiration to finish off my last few presents.
