Christmas gift guide part 1: Gifts for her

Even though we are only in October I am thinking about what to buy people for Christmas and also what I would like to receive myself. I am going to do a series in what to buy for her and what to buy for him.

This first part of the series is about what to get for a female. All gifts and prices are from boots unless stated otherwise.

Pixi ultimate beauty kit - £20 
This beautiful palette contains everything you need for both day and night looks. A great gift for a make up addict or someone who wears minimal make up.

Philosophy ornament in snow angle, peppermint bark and gingerbread girl - £7
These are definetely on my Christmas list this year, I want the Snow Angel one. These are pretty good value considering philosophy's normal prices.  These are 3 in 1 shower gels, bubble baths and shampoos. I would avoid using them as shampoo but otherwise they are a good gift. Plus you get a cute little ornament - whats not to love!

Soap and Glory You Cube Gift Box - £10
In this soap and glory gift box you get a mini flake away, a mini righteous butter, a mini hand food, a mini clean on me and a massive shower puff. I received a gift basically the same as this last year and loved it. I gave some of the things to my mum as I had full sizes of some things and she loved them too, so that just shows this is great for any age group.

Soap and Glory's Heaven Nose - £16
This is great value. You get a formula 1 perfume and a full size righteous butter. Considering the perfume is usually £15 you cant really go wrong with this set. I would be asking for this but I think I have too much soap and glory as it is !!

No7 Mini beautifier - £10
This is a great travel set and contains 3 powder eyeshadows in Innocence, Truffle and Wheatsheaf, with Truffle being my all time favourite eyeshadow from No7. You also get a highlighter, bronze rollerball shimmer and a mini mascara. Well worth the £10 in my opinion.

No7 smokey eye trio - £16
I think I will certainly be buying this gift for someone if I can bear to give it away once I have it. You get 3 eye trio's each with an applicator, a brown eye pencil, a black eye pencil and a mascara. Again well worth the money for what you get.

DKNY Be delicious Be delightful fragrance gift set £32
This is one of the fragrances I have asked for for Christmas. All the DKNY be delicious fragrances are gorgeous and I think most people like them so they make a great fragrance gift.  You get a 30ml perfume and a 100ml body lotion.

Marc Jacobs Oh Lola fragrance gift set - £50
I think this is a great gift to get yourself. I would love it but don't know if I would want someone spending £50 on a perfume for me. It is worth getting it in the set as the 50ml perfume is £47 so your paying £3 more to get a 75ml shower gel and body lotion.

If you want to see another gift guide for her please let me know as I have more ideas I just didn't want this to run on for ever.

Hope your all well Megan xx

  5. You could never go wrong with these gift ideas! I have DKNY Be Delicious perfume, would love to receive one this Christmas! I Just love the smell. :)
    By the way, personalized gifts like a necklace where you can write a personal message in it would also be good idea for any occasion gift.
