So Christmas is right around the corner, which means Christmas shopping! I’m typically not one to do Christmas Gift Guides because let’s face it – by the time I get round to doing them everyone and their dog has blogged about the best beauty kits and sets on the market. I always jump late on the bandwagon, I can’t help it. Having said that though, this year I really wanted to try and give some of you ideas on what to get your closest ladies. I decided to focus on some more expensive treats that I would personally love to find under my Christmas tree. We have fashion, makeup and hair care bits thrown in the mix, so let’s get started…
If you know someone that’s really into hair care then things seriously don’t get any better than the new Loreal Steampod* (here). This innovative lil’ tool takes hair styling to a whole new level. It uses steam to style the locks, which makes it 10x more gentle then our regular heat-styling tools. It minimizes the heat damage whilst making the hair look and feel super smooth and shiny and the long lasting results are incredible. Wanna hear a little secret? I actually way prefer it to my GHDs. Review is coming your way soon, but I’m sure that many ladies would love to unwrap this gem on Christmas Day.
If you have a candle lover in your life then you can’t go wrong with the Jo Malone candles (here). They are so luxurious, smell absolutely incredible and look so classy and sophisticated in every home. My fave scent is the Lime Basil & Mandarin (here / review) one, which is perfect for every season because of its fresh and clean scent. Every Jo Malone candle comes beautifully wrapped and it would be the perfect treat to find under the Christmas tree.
For the more fashion-oriented lady in your life I’d say go for a watch. It’s a piece that will always remind her of you and it’s really very special. I still remember the excitement of my best friend (find her blog here) last year when she opened her Daniel Wellington watch (here). They are my favorite as they come in so many different shapes and colors and the quality is fab. My recent favorite is this Classic Bristol* one in Rose Gold (here). It goes with almost any outfit and the leather wristband gives it such sophisticated feel. I love it and if you fancy treating someone special to a DW watch you can get 15% off with the code ‘rosychicc’. It’s valid until January 15th.
I personally love getting new perfumes as presents and I think it’s always great to get your loved ones a new scent. The Chloe Eau de Parfume (here) has been all I’ve been wearing for the past few months and it’s definitely one to check out. It’s super feminine and just screams ‘special’. Definitely go give it a little spritz and see for yourself.
Zoeva brushes. Do I need to say more? Swoon! They tick all the boxes what can I say. Makeup brushes are always a good idea as you can never have too many, am I right? The Zoeva Rose Gold Luxury Brush Set (here / review) would definitely be something I would loooove to unwrap on Christmas Day. The quality is absolutely incredible, the brushes make makeup application a child’s play and the bristles are so soft it’s not even funny. There are eight gorgeous brushes in total, housed in a lovely faux leather travel bag and I use every single one of them on a daily basis. The set it incredible value for money, so you can’t really go wrong.
There are tons of fab makeup sets out this year but if you don’t want to go for them then a high quality makeup piece is the way to go. I personally don’t know anyone who would say ‘no’ to a Chanel lippy for instance, so why not opt for one? They are true classics, just pick a finish and a shade and you’re set. And if you’re shopping for a nail polish fanatic, then a luxurious high-end nail polish is always a good idea. Formula wise, my faves are YSL and Estee Lauder as they apply like a dream, stay put for ages and have beautiful high-gloss finish. They shades are to die for as well, so go have a look.
What are you getting your loved-ones this Christmas?
Lots of love,
