Hello beauties, it’s officially the start of the festive season, my decorations are up and I’ve already got started on the tin of chocolates. In today’s post I’m kick starting my Christmas posts with my gift picks for all you ladies out there. We have a mix of food, makeup, homeware, jewellery and so much more!

I did a fair few reviews on these Huda Beauty eyeshadow palettes when they first launched earlier this year. These gem stone themed palettes are the perfect gift to treat a makeup lover who loves to experiment. The pigmentation is incredible as is the colour story in each. They are £25 each but if you really want to spurge they now have the whole collection in a vault for £100.
Another gift for the makeup lover and this time it comes in the form of a set. The Spice Of Life kit contains a eyeshadow palette that has some gorgeous shades in and is a must for those who love warm shades. A highlighting palette that contains a champagne gold highlight and a rosy link highlight (I use this for a shimmer blush) A lip liner and matching liquid lipstick in a vampy dark red. This is perfect for Zoeva lovers (im yet to have a palette from them that I didn’t love) or for those new to the brand. This set costs £38. I will be doing a review of this set very soon.
Anyone else love getting mugs for Christmas? Especially mugs with personalised detailing on such as these fun horoscope ones and the best part as they are only £3 so make the perfect secret Santa!
I was looking for quirky gifts on Etsy for a family member when I cane across the seller Buzz & Bear. How gorgeous is the druzy moon necklace? It’s so pretty and would look gorgeous layered with other jewellery. I definitely recommend having browse through Etsy to find some great hand made gifts that you won’t find on the high street.
I was gifted this a few weeks ago for a review but have since bought a back up bottle of this Ginger Liqueur from The Kings Ginger. It’s the perfect gift for booze lovers as so many drinks can be made with it, such as the the Kings and tonic (replace gin with the Kings Ginger) and my personal favourite, added to hot chocolate! This costs £23 and can be found at Waitrose in the UK.
When it comes to candles home sense is my go to all year round, but especially in the autumn/winter months as all their spiced, berry and pumpkin scents hit the shelves. They always have the perfect containers and make such attractive looking gifts!
A sweet gift, especially a chocolate one is always something I like to gift my loved ones, who doesn’t love chocolate! At the start of the year I found about the brand Monty Bojangles and have been obsessed ever since. Their chocolates are so rich in taste, are so luxurious and they have loads of flavours available! My personal favourite is the Pistachio Marooned.
My favourite item from this post has to be this new Lip Spinner set from Lime Crime. This is part of their new Christmas launch and is the perfect gift for lovers of the brand or for newbies to try some of their products. It contains three mini sized Velvetines and three mini sized Wet Cherry glosses. I love the formulas of both ranges so had to pick this up for myself. I managed to snag this in the Black Friday deals but full price this is £41 on Cult Beauty. I will be doing a separate blog post reviewing this on Friday!
When it comes to hot drinks not everyone likes a tea or coffee or hot chocolate and instead opts for a herbal brew. I recently picked up these two festive themed teas from The English Tea Shop and have been loving them so far. My favourite is this Rooiboos Candy Cane tea which has the classic taste of peppermint but with a gorgeous vanilla twist. A tub of this with a mug will make a cute little secret Santa gift!
It isn’t a gift guide without a product from Lush, their Christmas range is always amazing and this year I wanted to include this new shower gel that launched a few months ago. It smells like Marzipan and is so different to any shower gels from lush I’ve owned before.
I’ve also added another new launch that has become a new favourite of mine the Candy Cane bubble bar which is so cute and festive, it would make the perfect stocking filler. I wanted to add in the new Cranberry Fizz lip scrub Lip scrub too, this smells bloody amazing and is also perfect to slip into a stocking or to add in a bath hamper!
I was lucky enough to collaborate with this brand recently to make these gorgeous phone cases. Case App are a design your own case company that allows you to personalise them with any image and text. They also have lots of pre made designs to choose from and make laptop skins. Decorate your loved ones phone with a collage of photos or a pet or just a funky design.
Another gift for the Makeup lover, you always need the right tools to create a great makeup look and these makeup brushes from Spectrums Mean Girl collection are ‘so fetch’. This set contains ten brushes A01, A05, A07, A10, A16, A17, A21, B01, B06, C01 and come in this fun mesh makeup bag. Each brush has a quote printed on the side from the film and are amazing quality. This set costs £49
I reviewed this set recently and think this set is the ultimate gift for a brow lover. It contains five full sized Benefit brow products and a double ended brush. It costs £49.50 with a contents value of £118 which is incredible!
