I bloody LOVE Christmas! for me spending time with family and friends is really important however I do love the gifts too. I really enjoy watching and reading posts on Christmas Gift ideas because It always gives me inspiration for my gift buying. This year I have been super organised and bought all of my gifts, They are not wrapped yet purely because I absolutely hate wrapping pressies. The person that invented gift bags is a total legend! I have been gathering a few items together that I personally would be really pleased to receive on Christmas Day so here they are….

If you have a bit of cash to splash and want to treat someone who loves to travel I would highly recommend this Melissa Odabash clutch bag. Its a pricey gift but I think its great to take away on holiday. The inside of the bag is lined so its fine to take on the beach with your money and phone. I just love this bag and can not wait to take it on holiday with me in 2017.

For ladies & gents that love beauty I have chosen some really beautiful gifts that Don’t bust the bank balance either. For a real beauty enthusiast I would highly recommend the Pixiwoo book, Faces. Its fantastic for people just starting out with makeup or the complete makeup junkie, I have learnt loads of tips and tricks from the book that the two gorgeous makeup artist wrote. It also looks great on your coffee table because the images are so pretty. To keep with the Pixiwoo theme, I have also featured their Bold Metals essentials collection this features a blush brush, face powder brush and a really fat eyeshadow base brush. I would always recommend Real Techniques brushes to people because they are so affordable and just great brushes. The blog metals range are slightly more expensive however that is reflected in the quality of the brushes, Its their more lux version.

If you are after a stocking filler I have chosen the Wet Brush which is my everyday hair brush. I really wish these were around when I was a kid because I had have the most tangled, knotty hair imaginable. This is definitely under a tenner and totally worth a purchase. Another little treat for the Christmas stocking is the Aromatherapy Associates ‘my treat’. This is a 9ml bottle of the beautiful bath and shower oil which comes is a really cute box that you can hang on the Christmas tree. I always love a sweet treat at Christmas, Have you tried the Pink Champagne truffles from Hotel Chocolate? they are gorgeous and something I tend to have as a stocking filler however if you have someone that is pretty clean eating then these Nákd Christmas pud bars are a nice sweet to pop in the stocking.

Last but now least I have chosen these cool stemless cactus print glasses from Urban outfitters. They 2 pack are ideal for people who love home wear  like me and I think they can be used a couple of ways. Stating the obvious but you can use them as intended, for drinking, or for i had an idea that maybe you could plant a cacti in them… would that work? I dunno but I really love them. I bought 2 sets for my house last week!

I will keep adding more ideas on my Instagram come and follow me to keep up to date on all things beauty.
