Yes, I dropped the C word into a blogpost in mid November, I'm sorry! I apologise if you are completely against talking about Christmas until December, but this is how it's going to be here. Since the John Lewis advert has been released, I think now is the time to at least start to think about Christmas presents. Although we're not quite there yet, I thought a beauty gift guide would be a great way to kick off the run up to Christmas. Whether you're buying for your Sister, Mum, Girlfriend or even just your friend, a beauty gift is always a safe way to go. Over the last few weeks I have been scouting out potential gifts for family and friends, and am now confident that I know what I'm getting and for who. How organised!

If you know that someone has a favourite perfume which they are running out of, then you can always get them a new bottle. Although they can sometimes be fairly expensive, if I ever receive perfume it is normally one of my favourite gifts. If perfume is slightly out of your budget, try looking on websites like Fragrance Direct as they offer beauty bits and bobs at discounted prices. A perfume is such a staple and as long as you get one which they like, you're automatically onto a winner. 

Gift Sets

Ah the classic gift set. You can never go wrong when giving someone a gift set. There are so many already out in places like Boots and Superdrug, so next time you're in store take a look because I'm sure they'll sell out fairly quickly. Having done a quick browse on the Boots website, I've found some gift sets from big brands like Ted Baker, No7, Jack Wills and Soap & Glory. As I've said, gift sets are great for anyone and you cannot go wrong with them. Whether you're buying one for your Mum or your best friend, there is bound to be one which will appeal to them, a quick Google search will bring one up.

LUSH Products

I don't think I really need to say much about this, but anything from Lush is guaranteed to go down well. If you want to splurge, something from the Christmas Gifts section is a great way to go as most options offer you a selection of products from a certain range. A few years ago, I was given the Christmas Candy box which was filled with Candy Mountain goodies. What more could you want? If you don't want to splurge on a £50 gift set, then a selection of Lush pieces is an alternative way to go. Putting them into a little hamper like the one pictures above would be a really cute way to display it on Christmas Day!

Makeup Brushes
This one is particularly good if you have a younger sister or cousin who is just starting out with make up. There are so many brands to choose from but I personally think Real Techniques is a great place to start if you know someone who is just beginning to get into makeup. There are two sets that I have found which would be great and they are linked here and here. I started out with Real Techniques brushes and actually still use them to this day, several years down the line. 

Handmade Beauty Hamper
I actually found this idea on Pinterest the other day and have since been looking at pictures like the one above. This is a great way to personalise a gift for somebody, by adding a collection of their favourite products into a hamper and decorating it to make it look all festive. It doesn't have to be a huge box, one the size of a shoe box is a perfect size to put under the tree and still contain lots of beauty goodies for the recipient. 


  1. I totally made my sister a beauty hamper for Christmas, she loved it! Not to mention make-up brushes where on my wish list and I got them :D

  2. Perfume is always a winner! Handmade hampers are a sweet gift.x
