Christmas Gift Guide for Her

Christmas Gift Guide for Her, beauty blogger, UK blog, Christmas 2014, gift ideas,

The Body Shop Glazed Apple Tin of Treasures*, £17
Make your gift the sweetest of the festive season with this mouth-watering Glazed Apple collection. This selection of delicious-smelling seasonal treats come perfectly packaged in a fun and reusable apple inspired tin – no wrapping required! It includes: Shower Gel, Body Butter, Body Lotion, Body Polish and Green Mini Crinkle Bath Lily. I am in love with this range, it smells so good! Other festive collections from The Body Shop are Frosted Cranberry and Vanilla Brulee. You can read about The Body Shop Christmas releases here, my favourites are also Perry The Penguin Bath Sponge* £5 and Lip and Cheek Doll* £10.

Perfume
I think perfume is always a good idea for a gift, but only if you know the person well. If not, then maybe get The Perfume Shop Vivabox (see below). However, I don't really think you can go wrong with this choice of cult and classic fragrances like: Calvin Klein Reveal For Her*,  Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream* and Chlo√© Eau De Parfum*. 

The Perfume Shop Women's Fragrance Selection Vivabox*, £37.99
A choice of fragrances to try with a voucher for a full size bottle to collect from any of The Perfume Shop stores across the UK. Each Vivabox comes with 7 samples so whoever you buy for can choose their favourite and collect one full size bottle from their stores.

No7 Mini Eye Palette*, £10
This beautiful compact contains a selection of 8 popular No7 eye shadow colours, along with a handy double-ended applicator. Use the versatile shades to create a natural daytime look or a night time smoky eye.

Caudalie Divine Oil*, £8
This multi-purpose, luxurious dry oil moisturises, nourishes and enhances the skin thanks to its unique formula made with an exceptional blend of oils (grape, hibiscus, sesame and argan). It envelops the skin with a subtle, floral and sun-kissed fragrance, with woody notes. You can use it on the body, hair, nails, in the bath or as a massage oil. This small bottle is perfect as a stocking filler or even as a Christmas ornament. 

Timothy Dunn Blue Rose Home Candle, £34
This ethereal, scented candle is dedicated to the memory of Timothy Dunn's mother and inspired by her wonderfully idyllic English country garden. Sit back and fill your senses with an abundance of highly scented roses, mop-headed peonies, gentian, heartsease, hollyhocks, forget-me-nots and jasmine. This fresh, modern floral home candle is created with rosewater notes, dewy violets, sugared raspberries and a contemporary rich-red Moroccan rose accord, expertly blended with an array of sensual musks and enhanced with nuances of zesty orange flower, cedar and fresh green tea. Absolutely divine.

Jurlique Aromatic Rose Duo*, £35
This duo consists of Rose Hand Cream and Essence of Rose Roll-On Fragrance Oil and is perfect for those who love the smell of roses! Let the enchanting scent uplift your senses.

Soap & Glory Gift Sets, from £5
Popular every year, Soap & Glory has something for everyone from tiny stocking fillers to huge bags filled with skincare and bodycare. I always get something from the range, the best way is to wait for 50% off Boots offer and get stocked up for the next year!

Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual: For Everyone from Beginner to Pro, £20
This is the book that makeup fans have been waiting for - Bobbi Brown's twenty-five-plus years of makeup styling experience distilled into one complete, gorgeous book. Bobbi looks at everything from skincare basics to every aspect of facial makeup - from how to find the right colour and type of foundation for any skin tone to how to apply every detail of eye makeup (brows, eyeliner, eye shadow and eyelashes) no matter the eye colour and shape. Of course there are never-before-seen tips on blush, bronzer, lip liners, lipstick and more.

Stationery
I think stationery, especially notepads are also a good idea for Christmas gift or simply stocking filler. Paperchase always has the cutest designs and I literally have to stop myself from buying more than one whenever I'm there!

Links of London Narrative Collection, from £55
A contemporary combination of modern pendants, bracelets and rings, the Narrative collection is perfect for personalising with your own significant touch. Crafted in silver, yellow or rose gold vermeil these engravable jewels feature a subtle detailing of bubbles encapsulated in between two plaques to create a truly unique layered effect. I am in love with my Narrative Oval Disc Pendant* in silver and got my initial engraved on it.

NARS Digital World Lip Pencil Coffrer, Exclusive to SpaceNK £32
I didn't manage to get last year's edition of this wonderful set, so I made sure this time to get it quickly! It has five sought-after Satin Lip Pencils in a jumbo pencil format for easy on-the-go application. The value is amazing and it's a great way to try famous NARS lip pencils.
