I’m going to toot my own horn here, but I am super pleased with my Christmas gift guide this year as I’ve been very selective, hopefully resulting in a curated selection of amazing gifts, any of which I would personally love to receive. There are some absolute corkers, so I won’t waffle on any further; let’s get straight into it!
The showstoppers are the fancy pants gifts that really have the wow factor. These are a little more spendy, but they’re worth the investment and hopefully will make for a really well considered gifting experiencing:
Cult 51 Daily Glow Collection – £145 here – link
This beautifully presented set contains a moisturiser duo with a pair of application tools. The whole set screams luxury, and I feel like this would be a particularly lovely gift for a very special mum.
Glossybox Subscription – starting at £16.95 here – link
Giving a Glossybox subscription as a gift is such a fab idea, as you can select how many months you want to offer, meaning your recipient will get a box full of beauty each month, such a the gorgeous December box that you can see in the image above.
More than Soaps Skincare Gift Set – £45 – TikTok exclusive, find their page here – link
This is just the most perfect example of the sort of gift I would love to receive, with the main focus being the two key products -a face oil and a face mask – plus lots of additional goodies to enhance the experience. It’s the ultimate box of pampering joy.
Advanced Nutrition Programme Skin Clarifier Set – £86 here – link
This festive set contains two of my favourite products from the range, the Skin Accumax for treating breakouts, and Skin Omegas+ for aiding hydration. For those who are not spot-prone, there are a couple of other sets, all of which carry a decent saving.
Next up is the mid-point selection, with lots of gorgeously indulgent skincare sets, plus an absolutely essential kit from makeup brush heroes, Real Techniques:
Real Techniques Sparkling 12 Piece Brush & Sponge Giftset – usually £60, but currently down to £20 (!!) at Superdrug here – link
Real Techniques Christmas sets are always amazing and they always offer a great selection for every budget. This set is a beauty, particularly a it includes a really well-made carry case for brushes which I will definitely be taking away with me next year.
Give Me Cosmetics The Skincare Range – £39 here – link
This set comes with a great saving and contains five full-sized products. I think this would make a lovely gift for someone who’s new to skincare and wants to start on a good quality routine.
Caudalie The Brightening Glow Essentials – £31 here – link
This is one of those sets that I think looks like it cost a lot more than it did! The focus of the set is the stunningly scented Soleil des Vignes Oil Elixir, but it also comes with decent sample sizes of the matching shower gel and the Premier Cru The Eye Cream too.
Kate Somerville Let It Glow Trio – £34 – here
Kate Somerville is one of my absolute favourite skincare brands and this set is such a bargain! You get £75 worth of skincare for just £34, so if you need an incentive to gift yourself something lovely, here it is.
Nourish London Hydration Heroes Gift Set – £55 here – link
Nourish London have a great selection of gift sets spanning all price points and needs, but I think this trio of hydration superstars is particularly special.
Evolve Beauty Pink Dream Duo £30 here – link
The Evolve Beauty Christmas offering this year is absolutely huge, covering every budget, plus there’s currently a 3 for 2 offer happening. This rather random duo includes a cleansing oil and a Gus Sha, both products I love to use.
Budget Friendly/Stocking Fillers
AKT The Discovery Set – £24 here – link
How absolutely frickin’ adorable are these dinky little deodorants?! They are the most perfect stocking fillers, or a great introductory set to the brand, with one of each available scents included.
Give Me Cosmetics Hyaluronic Acid Deep Hydration Skin Duo – £26.25 – link
A perfect pair of suits-all-skin types HA products, this is a great choice for someone who’s tricky to buy for.
STYLPRO Twirl me up LED Hand Held Compact Mirror – £14.99 here – link
This is probably the most innovative hand mirror I’ve ever seen – it’s so handy! Any beauty lover would love this, and it’s a great price too.
Earthy Nail Treatments – £26.97 here – link
This contains a quad of gorgeous nail treatments that make for such a cute gift; pair them with a beautifully fragranced hand cream for an extra special treat.
Rejuvenated Christmas Rescue Duo – £35.95 here – link
A thoughtful gift for those of us who are prone to overindulge at this time of the year (so most of us, then) this contains a pair of health and hydration boosting supplements.
Hero Mighty Pimple Patches – currently reduced at Boots, starting at £3.99 here – link
These come in an array of options (my favourite are the Invisible+ ones) and they would be a great stocking filler for a teen who struggles with breakouts…or indeed an adult with the same problems, like me!
I’ll be sharing a closer look at some of my favourites over the next few days on my Instagram feed, so keep your eyes peeled and happy shopping!
