Christmas Pressie Ideas!

I left my Christmas shopping until December, again! Every year I plan to be organised but never quite get there, I’m too much of a flake these days. Anyway, if you’re like me and are looking for some inspiration I hope this posts helps. All of these are fab gifts for girlies of all ages, from brush sets to nail polish sets.

Firstly, above is a great take on a luxury candle, it’s also a body oil! It is absolutely gorgeous. At €45 it is a luxury buy but it lasts for ages and really is a decadent treat.

Real Techniques Sam’s Picks

I love my Real Technique’s foundation brush but had yet to try any of the other offerings. This set is perfect. I have one myself and bought one for my sister. The box is €35 from Cloud10Beauty.com, which is actually a good bargain when you look at the price of the brushes individually. The box includes the foundation brush, multi-task brush, buffing brush, crease brush, setting brush and fine liner brush.

Sephora Favourites Give Me More Lip Sampler

If you’re in the US or know someone travelling there, the Sephora sampler sets are a great gift buy. Last year I tried the mascara’s box, the year before an illuminating one but this years is my favourite. 16 lip sticks from 4 colour families. No doubt there’ll be a dud in there that won’t suit me but I’ll have fun experimenting.

Royal Apothic Hand Creme

Hand scented with Hollan Park. €19 from Therapie Clinics nationwide. If you have a €20 Kriskindle budget then this is a great pick.

Image Vital C Gift

Hydrating Facial Cleanser, Hydraying Anti-Ageing Serum and Prevenetion + all full size. Image skincare can always be relied on, the stuff actually works. They are the best products I’ve come across so far. €99.50 (save €32 on the products individually).

Yonka Spa Unwind Set

Phyto Bain, Quintessence Candle, both full size and a Yon Ka Headband all nicely presented in a hat box. Another decadent gift, perfect for the mammy’s I think. €68

Ciate Mini Mani Month

For the girly girl in your life, nothing will bring a bigger smile to her face than Ciate Mini Mani Month. The kit includes a polish for each day of the month, each housed behind its own little door. It contains nineteen of Ciate’s bestselling mini Paint Pots, four textured manicure toppers and a surprise full size paint pot. This is a guaranteed pleaser. (€55 from Cloud10beauty.com).

Ren Rose Duo

I’m a big fan of REN products. This Rose Duo gift set (€47) contains the award winning Moroccan Rose Otto Body Wash and Lotion. REN uses only 100% plant and mineral derived actives and is free from skin-unfriendly synthetic ingredients. Or try the Mini Rose Gift Set (€24) which contains all of the minis. The Rose Otto Oil is really something special!

W7 Gift Sets

I’m new to W7 but if you’re looking for a cheap and cheerful stocking filler then these might be for you. The Nail Bling gift is only €3.49 and the Brow Bar €4.99. Both worth a try! Available from CheapCosmetics.ie.

I’ll be back later with the before and after pics you have been asking for since my braces have been removed!

I hope everyone is getting into the holiday spirit.
