Not so long ago I put up a stocking fillers for her guide (read it here) and I wanted to complete the series by featuring some well known beauty brands for a christmas gift guide. With so many brands on sale and with countless offers and deals, this is the perfect time to grab those gifts since it's just less than a week left until the big day.
Firstly, I want to thank all of the companies who have sent me press releases for this guide and for my stocking fillers post, this truly was such a fun series to photograph and it meant that I could experiment with my photos and props so without further delay, I present to you. My ultimate girly christmas gift guide.
Starting off this insanely cute gift inspiration, I was sent a huge box full of goodies from the lovely team at I Love Cosmetics. They have released alot of fun giftsets this year that ranges from candles to body washes. The Raspberry Ripple gift set comes with a huge full sized Raspberry Ripple shower and bath creme (500ml) along with a pastel pink shower puff, now I don't know about you but this screams cuteness! This very fruity bath product is the perfect choice for that pink lovin' gal in your life. Check it out here - link /£5.00*
Calling all sweet scent lovers, the Bilou range* is worth checking out and if you ask me, I would definitely buy a trio of products and wrap it up beautifully. You can easily find the whole range at Superdrug. Loads of skincare brands are releasing shower foams lately but these are the only ones you need to try. Not only that, Bilou have some cute 2 in 1 body sprays, the fizzy berry really makes me smell like vimto! A vegan and cruelty free company that needs to be under the tree this christmas. Check it out here - link /all products are £3.99*
How about adding some make-up brushes to your gift shopping, I have found Bella and Bear to be such good quality make-up brushes that are super soft and make applying your make-up a dream and achieve flawless finishes too! The two brushes are called angled kabuki foundation brush and a angled blusher/contouring blush. This company is vegan friendly which is great to know. I currently use this duo daily and the brushes are so sturdy and it seriously feels so expensive! You can buy the range on amazon, both brushes retail for £10.99* and you can check it out here - link
A personal favourite of mine, be creative and give someone some prints! Printiki* is the place to easily print off photos from your phone and instagram. The photos above are from my instagram and these mini prints are perfect to give or you could make a cute personalised scrapbook with the prints. The price starts from as little as £5.50 and you get 20 prints! You can also choose from different sizes and borders, I opted for a striking black border just to make the prints stand out more. I love the size of these too! You can keep them in a book or hang them around.
Back to I Love Cosmetics and they also have a brand new home scents range, big candles and stylish reed diffusers all in their popular scents, the same scents that are available in their bath products which is great because for example you might love their violet dreams scent and you would want your room to smell like it too. All candles and reed diffusers are £15 each and this would make a fabulous gift for that home decor loving person... or maybe for yourself? the products truly feel luxurious and for the fraction of the price, you are getting scented products that actually leave a long lasting scent, not only that how cute is the drawstring bag that comes with the candle?! Check it out here - link and here - link oh and I need to quickly add that if you order by midday on the 21st of December you will qualify for christmas delivery so you can be assured that your gifts will arrive on time.
Lastly give the gift of me time to someone you love, these lovely pamper sets are just adorable! Each set includes a beautifully scented body wash (100ml) and votive candle (50g) in the same fantastic fragrance. Designed for everyday use. These I LOVE products contains no parabens, silicones, microbeads or animal ingredients and are vegan friendly. This duo would make the perfect choice, my personal favourite is the vanilla milk and you can choose from six scents. I was sent two vanilla milk* and exotic fruits* each giftset is £10* and you can check it out here - link and here - link
