I have been working so hard sifting through and picking the best of all the Christmas Gift Sets in the shops this year. I have found great gifts for every type of person in your life for my Christmas Gift Guide 2017 and I hope you like them!
The Trendy One…
The Girl of Now by Elie Saab is the fragrance of the moment and the perfect gift for any ‘IT’ Girl. ‘Girl of Now has a free spirit; an explosive, positive and disconcerting energy. She’s never fake and lives every instant with intensity and grace. She’s fascinating, endearing, spontaneous and audacious. She’s real!’ If this reminds you of someone you know, this fragrance with notes of Orange Blossom Absolute, Almond Essence, Ormond Flower (exclusive to this fragrance), White Jamsine, Magnolia Blossoms, as well as Cashmeran, Tonka Bean and Almond Milk will make the perfect gift. It’s my current favourite fragrance, hence why it won a spot in my Christmas Gift Guide 2017!
We all know at least one person who always seems stressed and could do with some down time. This Christmas, give them the gift of peacefulness with Aurelia’s Peacefulness Collection. Peaceful moments are hard to come by, especially this time of year, but this stunning gift set helps offer a calming, relaxing break from all of the stress. The limited edition Peacefulness Aromatic Candle; a fine blend of Lavender, Neroli, Rose geranium and Cedarwood infused into natural wax, give the space to breathe, unwind and find a new sense of tranquillity. The senses are further indulged with the rich and hydrating Cell Revitalise Night Moisturiser and Cell Repair Night Oil. The multi award-winning ultra-rich hydrating night cream fuses probiotic ingredients with plant and flower botanicals to hydrate and soothe, transforming the skin’s luminosity. The Cell Repair Night Oil contains a relaxing, night time blend of Neroli, Lavender, Rose and Mandarin, to encourage mindfulness while working to hydrate and soothe all skin types, promoting a luminous, dewy and radiant glow.
The L’Occitane Nourishing Shea Butter Collection is perfect for the classic woman. The hydrating formula with a classically clean scent is one of their most renowned formulas and this gift captures the range perfectly. With a hand/body wash, soap, ultra rich cream and the hand cream, it encapsulates the best sellers of the range. These are the absolute basic one needs to try to really appreciate this range so this set makes the perfect gift for the classic woman in your life.
The Well Groomed One…
L’Occitane Aromatic is a range that suits the modern gent who has style and panache. The best selling L’Occitane mens scent has warm masculine notes of peppery woods, lavender and rosemary. This gift set includes a 100ml L’Occitan Eau de Toilette, 250ml L’Occitan Shower Gel, 100g L’Occitan Soap, and 30ml L’Occitan After Shave Balm all in a L’OCCITANE signature gift box. These products look and smell sexy and stylish, making the ideal gift for that particularly well groomed man in your life.
The Crabtree & Evelyn Limited Edition White Cardamom Range creates the perfect festive setting with warming notes of sweet mimosa and mulled spice essences of cardamom. The Diffuser, Body Scrub & Body Cream are my favourites and so made the cut for my Christmas Gift Guide 2017. The Diffuser will introduce the scent of Christmas with its aromatic fragranced oils. The nourishing scrub is a blend of sugar complexes and rich oils which gently buff skin to a pristine, silky finish, leaving it gorgeously scented. Followed by the Body Cream containing nourishing shea butter and Moroccan argan oil, it conditions and hydrates the skin giving it a layer of extra gleam and glow. Combined, they have the ability to envelop the receiver in the scent of Christmas completely, even when it is over. Help the one obsessed with Christmas to overcome the end of Christmas blues with Crabtree & Evelyn’s beautifully packaged Christmas in a jar.
We are all body conscious in one way or the other so what better gift than the recipe for silky smooth skin all over? This gorgeous Gatineau Body Double gift set features the brand new DefiLift Body Oil to deeply nourish and condition the skin, an invigorating body brush to improve circulation and buff away dead cells, and the AHA Body Lotion to draw moisture to the skin’s surface. This combination of products is the ultimate treat for your skin and a great solution for cellulite too. The result is flawless, healthy skin!
Hair removal can be a pain for anyone but is a particular irritant for any perfectionist. Having some perfectionist tendencies myself, I know that nothing short of perfectly smooth skin is acceptable. Enter SmoothSkin Bare, the little whizz kid at-home IPL removal device dreams are made of. Providing permanent hair reduction for all areas including legs, underarms and even the face, it would make a perfect gift for the perfectionist in your life. With 100 flashes per minute, it can take as little as 10 minutes to treat your entire body. This small yet effective device gives up to 92% hair reduction in as little as 4 weeks. Not to mention, this little wonder is for life – SmoothSkin Bare has UNLIMITED flashes, so they’ll never have to worry about it running out!
The Muscial One/ New Home Owner
Available in different colours, this aGroove Bluetooth Speaker is something that is guaranteed to be on their list. This soft to touch, stylish speaker is the ultimate home accessory for easy, good quality music; ideal for entertaining. Playing for up to 24 hours at full charge via Bluetooth, a USB and AUX cable are also included for ultimate ease. Super simple to set up, it took me seconds despite being a complete technophobe, hence why it made my Christmas Gift Guide 2017! Pick a colour to match their style/ home and watch their face light up on Christmas Day.
Diamonds are a girls best friend and especially if she is a bit of a princess (or spoilt, depends how you look at it!). The Label M Diamond Dust Shampoo & Conditioner contain a unique Micro-Diamond Complex that combines real black diamonds, white diamonds, pearl dust, champagne and white rose petal oil. The softening shampoo exfoliates individual strands to remove toxins; micro-fine diamond dust has been pulverised, minimising the size of each particle to increase penetration into the hair shaft for optimum results. The caring conditioner has the same formula and exclusive blend of pearl dust, champagne and white rose petal oil work to transform dull, lifeless locks, restoring luminosity and adding weightless body and bounce. Hair is strengthened, protected and deeply moisturised with revived radiance. To wash your hair with diamonds and champagne is the ultimate indulgence; the princess in your life will appreciate that.
An organisers dream, Wolf 1834 are totally unique brand, that I am currently obsessed with. They stock many styles of different, good quality, stylish storage solutions for your jewellery and watches. This delicately constructed Chloe Zip Jewellery Case accentuates the beauty of the leather with a gorgeous pattern. It includes black leather, zip closure, mirror, LusterLoc™ anti-tarnish lining, 6 ring rolls, 6 earring holes and 4 storage compartments. Super pretty and convenient, it would make the perfect jewellery case for the organised person in your life who either travels often or has a jewellery collection on the smaller side.
The Suave One…
Since I’m obsessed with this brand at the moment, I thought I would include an option for the suave man in your life in my Christmas Gift Guide 2017 too. This man will have a watch or two that is precious to him as well as a few pair of cufflinks and tie bars. The Blake Valet Tray is also a great way to get him organised. The lush flocked lining will protect all his valuables whilst keeping them in easy reach. Its a thoughtful and unique gift for a man who is into the details, one he will really appreciate.
The Trend Setter…
Like the artist, L’Insoumis (“the maverick” in French) is independent and self-confident, unconventional and pioneering: a modern-day adventurer. A charismatic, elegant, authentic and modern-day man, who doesn’t follow trends: he creates them. L’Insoumis reinvents the most masculine of fragrance families: a timeless and refined fougere, which blend aromatic freshness with the subtle potency of ambery woods. A Basil top note, with Patchouli and Vetyver notes that follow creates a bold, unique combination reserved for the trendsetter in your life.
Perfect for the jet setters in your life, these Nivea his and hers gift sets are the most reasonably priced in my Christmas Gift Guide 2017. Featuring Nivea’s staple products, these sets contain the essentials for any man and woman. To top it off, the sets come complete with gorgeous, great quality travel wash bags. I particularly like the rose gold one for her, it is bang on trend and super cute! Both wash bags are generously spacious and leave room for other essentials; toothbrush, toothpaste etc. Nivea have a wide range of gift sets available this Christmas to suit all budgets(Pictured are The Prepared Set and the Smooth Skin Set). Be sure to check out the gift sets with weekender bags too, they’re great quality and all for a very reasonable price.
This Best of Burts Gift Set contains no parabens, phthalates, petrolatum or SLS and is as natural as beauty products can get. It is the ideal gift for the person in your life who prefers his/her beauty products to be natural. Combining two hydrating Lip Balms, a moisturising Body Lotion, and conditioning Hand and Foot Creams, the set is bursting with rich, natural ingredients to thoroughly soften and smooth skin. The Best of Burts Gift Set from Burts Bees is intensely nourishing for the whole body. Although natural, all the products smell amazing! My particular favourite is the coconut foot cream.
Espa’s Winter Pine Candle is the perfect gift for the loved one who is their happiest at home. A candle which fills its surroundings with the distinctive and enchanting aroma of Cinnamon, Eucalyptus and Pine is perfect for the holiday season. The warm, festive scent is sure to make their home that touch cosier and you a touch more popular. It comes beautifully presented in an ESPA gift box, finished with a hand-tied green ribbon- present perfection.
