The Christmas countdown is on! Have you started your present shopping yet? I know lots of people who haven’t begun yet but as December is one of my busiest months of the year for work I always get mine done in November. So hopefully my present buying can help you out when you start yours.
P.S. If you are my family … stop reading now, as you will be getting what is listed below!
Marks & Spencer
Marks and Spencer’s is always one of my top places to go for gifts at Christmas. They have lovely gift sets for all the family. Here are some of my favourite they have in the store now.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Divine Elixir fragrance gift pack comes with an Eau de Toilette and a body cream to layer up your Divine Elixir scent with vibrant notes of orange blossom, white flowers, sandalwood and vanilla. I love the beautifully packaged box, the rose gold bow looks so cute and these will gorgeous on a dressing table, it looks so lovely I know my mum will love it.
These are the cutest little Hand cream and nail file collection, I love the little reindeer faces. The creams smell great and dissolve quickly into the skin, and won’t leave any sticky feeling on afterwards! I know my nan will absolutely love this.
Lama’s are all set to be the new Unicorn, and Marks and Spencers have a lovely selection of lama themed gifts including this gorgeous red makeup bag. This is perfect for me as I feel I have everything there possibly could be of unicorns now. This wash bag is a great size, as often I feel they are too small for me and I wouldn’t be able to get everything in. I think this is perfect for girls and you could even fill it with other lama gifts from the collection.
Ok so if you are like me and over 30 we are at the age when it is ok to give your friends skin care. This stunning Absolute Radiance Gift Set will leave your skin glowing, it contains a hyaluronic acid hot cloth cleanser and cleansing cloth, you have probably heard of hyaluronic as it is one of the keywords in beauty recently, that is because it has amazing effective at re-plumping and hydrating the skin as well as being super moisturising, plus it is ultra-gentle so you won’t get any harsh side effects despite it being called an acid. In this gift set there is also a luxurious 24Kt gold face mask for clearing pores and a radiance revealing peel for a flawless finish, so you will really be treating your friend to full on pamper session.
Head to the Marks and Spencers gift shop at www.marksandspencers.com and get 3 for 2 on gifts.
Eyeshadow palettes have become a really popular gift for Christmas over the last few years. This new eye palette called ‘Matte Muse’ by Memi is perfect for teens, they have all the pink and coopers which are so on trend right now. Plus they are great value at only £22.
Ok, so I always buy my husband a beauty related Christmas gift as I feel it is part of Christmas. But this is probably the hardest for me to buy! But I have recently found the Refinery hair and skincare range offers the ultimate, at-home premium grooming products. This gorgeous gift set contains;
Their expert shaving trio featuring The Refinery’s Face Wash, Shave Foam Gel and Post Shave Balm – housed in a bronze, zip-up wash bag. The products look so smart and masculine but also smell divine so sure it’ll be a huge success this Christmas day.
After our blogger’s shopping trip to Elys, I fell in love with the Christmas gifts from Benefit! They have such a lovely selection which all come in the cutest packaging. The “Sweeten Up Buttercup” is my absolute favourite as it contains all of Benefits top sellers, so all products I have loved and used for years in one kit, include their famous bronzer and volumising mascara. Plus it comes in a gorgeous pink makeup bag, the ultimate gift for all makeup lovers out there. Pop to Elys to see the full collection.
For anyone as obsessed with their hair as me, I have found the perfect gift with Moroccan Oil gift sets. I recently started using their oil after being recommended it by my hairdresser and it is amazing! Makes such a difference to curly, frizzy hair like mine. They have lots of different products and they come in lovely packaging so would make great presents.

This candle is the most amazing candle I have ever smelt! Sometimes Christmas scents can be quite strong and overbearing, but this is absolutely perfect! It subtle scents of mandarin and cinnamon I have had it burning throughout November in my Beauty Room and have had so many compliments, now I need to buy a new one to last me throughout December. You can buy the gift set with a room spray as well as a candle or can just buy the larger candle by itself. I feel like everyone loves this scent so it will be the perfect Secret Santa gift. Did you know there’s a Neom store based in Wimbledon Village?
So does anyone else apart from me always end up getting themselves a gift for Christmas? This year I have decided to treat my skin, since turning 30 I have been using lots of different products and trying a number of treatments to get my skin looking it’s best and stay that way, but I have never really thought about taking supplements. So I thought I would treat myself to the Bioglan Beauty Collagen Gummies and Beauty Collagen Effervescent
Bioglan Beauty Collagen Gummies are specially formulated with readily absorbed hydrolysed Marine Collagen plus carefully selected vitamins and minerals to help support the maintenance of healthy-looking hair, skin & nails. The best part is they are so easy to take – no water and no swallowing difficult tablets plus they are a delicious strawberry flavour, I didn’t realise they would taste so good but they were actually delicious and had to stop myself eating too many!
Boosting Collagen, the secret to healthy ageing! Bioglan Beauty Collagen Effervescent is a delicious tasting berry flavour with readily absorbed hydrolysed Marine Collagen plus carefully selected vitamins and minerals to help support the maintenance of healthy-looking hair, skin & nails. It tastes delicious and all you need to do is add it to your water, so perfect for helping you get your daily water intake as well. You can get yours at www.bioglan.co.uk/
