I will be gifting this to a friend who travels constantly. I have printed a selection of photos to fill this with photos of our group of friends, her partner and family as a pre-made gift that she can travel with.
I will be giving this set to my friend who want’s to wear more make up but doesn’t know where to start. Brushes are a great way to build a collection and create new looks and this set has all your staples covered.
I don’t watch Strictly Come Dancing but this is an undeniably awesome selection of nail polishes for a bargain price of £16. I love how the set is seperated out in to dance styles and just picturing the music, I think these colours are a good match! The top row is bright bold Salsa, 2nd row is soft muted Ballroom and the 3rd row is deep dark sultry Latin.
This will be a good gift for a young relative wanting to be girly, a huge SCD fan or anyone wanting to build up a nail polish collection to rival that of the lovely Helen over at www.just-nice-things.co.uk
The set has all the colours you could want covered off so it’s an all round great set or a starter set. The joy of the last 3 presents is that they were all part of the 3 for 2 Christmas presents which saves money!
I spotted this while in Superdrug yesterday and stocked up on a few for stocking fillers. The set of 3 lip balms for £3.99 is a great bargain stocking filler or secret santa gift that won’t break the bank. Either buy for yourself or gift it on. Superdrug also offers 3 for 2 on gifts which made stocking up that little bit easier AND cheaper!
I think I’ll have one of those for myself if I go back!
5. Yankee Christmas Candles – assorted retaillers and sizes
I am a sucker for a scented candle and my purse friendly finds this year have to be 2 small jars from Yankee Candles £7.99 in stores or you can find them cheaper online at places such as www.yankeedoodle.co.uk. I normally buy the larger sizes as I find they give off a greater scent but to try new flavours and build a collection of candles for different seasons, the small jars are great and they make a super cute little gift.
The Christmas Cookie is a deliciously sweet, sugary vanilla scent that is lovely to burn when you want to get toasty warm on the sofa with a nice dvd. It is sweet but not overpoweringly so.
The Red Apple Wreath is a warm, wintery, christmas smell. It’s fruity but also has a kick of cinnamon to it which I LOVE! I like to burn this on an evening when I’m in my PJs just before bed as I find it a nice relaxing smell.
I should also mention the Christmas Eve scent.. It is lovely and fruity… this will be my next purchase I think!
6. Lipsmackers Coca Cola lip balm tin – £8 – Sainsburys
With winter being in full swing now, our poor lips are being battered daily with wind, cold and blasting heating. I love a flavoured lip balm for topping up during the day and I can’t resist Coca Cola or Cherry Cola flavoured Lip Smackers.
Imagine my joy when I saw this in Sainsburys!
Perfect gift for a friend, sister or younger relative. Not something I’d give to my Mam though.. But that’s just me!
Hope this has been some last minute help. No matter how well planned we are, someone nearly always drops by with an unexpected gift so I always like to have a couple of little stocking filler type presents that can be used in emergencies!
