It’s hard to believe that Christmas Day is only 10 days away! I’m pretty pleased to say that I’m on target with my Christmas Shopping but I do need to step up my Christmas movie watching game. I’ve not watched Elf or The Polar Express yet! This weekend, I’m heading to Manchester to visit their Christmas Market with Hayey. I’m so excited and I’ll hopefully manage to finish my Christmas shopping in the Arndale. I’ve put together a few last minute gift ideas for her, just in case you are looking for some inspiration.
The personalised letter candles from M&S are great for Secret Santa’s, stocking fillers or just to give to your friends. These candles are actually on offer at the moment so there aren’t many left online so I’d recommend checking in-store. Prices start from £3 for the one pictured and £6 for a lidded one. Bargain!
My book wishlist is seriously getting out of hand at the moment but there’s been some great releases this year. Some of my recommendations include Fleur De Force’s The Luxe Life, Sali Hugh’s Pretty Honest (The ultimate Beauty Bible) and #GirlBoss.
For the Stylish lady in your life, you can’t go wrong with a new timepiece. Chapelle Jewellery have got a wide variety of designer pieces at outlet prices. They have put together their own Gift Guide here of glittering jewels and timepieces including this Rotary Pink Mother of Pearl Watch*. This is currently nearly 50% off right now and not only is this watch absolutely stunning, it’s also a pretty practical present.
You can’t go wrong with a couple of DVDs at Christmas. Warner Bros has put together some perfect movies that the ladies will love. Me Before You and How to be Single are also on my Christmas wishlist. If you’ll have seen yesterday’s 12 days of Chrismas Giveaways, you can actually enter to win these here.
Paul Mitchell has some lovely haircare gift sets for Christmas this year. I actually went for dinner with Salon Success who stock Paul Mitchell and was shown some of the collection. They have brought out sets for literally everybody from fine to unruly locks. I’ve got the Wink set which includes a detangler and a sculpting foam. The set promises to make it original in the wink of an eye.
If you’re heading through Duty Free in the next week and are looking to pick up a few beauty items, this Clinique Non-Stop Looks palette is one to pick up. There’s three palettes in the collection; New York, Seoul and London – All inspired by each city. Each palette contains six eyeshadows and a blush, I’m a little bit obsessed with the New York one. The shadows are so wearable and let’s not get started on the super adorable packaging!
For a bit of luxe skincare, Estee Lauder have some great options. I have been loving Estee Lauder Skincare at the moment, especially the Advanced Night Repair collection. Also from Estee Lauder is the brand new Modern Muse Le Rouge Gloss fragrance which you might have seen Kendall Jenner modelling for the campaign. Also available from Duty Free, you can pick up a set which includes all five fragrances in the Modern Muse collection.
You can view my full Festive Gift Guide here, I have ideas for everyone including kids, stocking fillers and even beauty lovers! Hopefully, I’ve got you feeling inspired to get that Christmas shopping done.
