Hands up those who have left their gift buying to the very last minute? Guilty! But don’t worry, right now there are so many companies still offering next day delivery and with stores open even on Xmas day itself, it’s never been a better time to procrastinate. I usually know exactly what to buy a few months in advance. I know who’ll love that new fragrance, who would appreciate a gift for the home and who would rather a bottle of gin than a new pair of shoes.
For the home obsessed…
Top to bottom:
Amara: A luxury home website stocking stunning Bella Freud cushions (bring that 1970 vibe into the home), Versace bedding and so much more. I’m loving this gorgeous Fornasetti tray (£100), so much so I think it’s ok to give as a ‘to me from me’ gift.
Vogue: Subscribe now, just £19.99 for 12 issues each delivered straight to their door every month!
Jo Malone: When it comes to candles there’s only one go-to brand and that’s Jo Malone. I was given the Sweet Almond and Macaroon candle from one of my best friends on my wedding day to get ready with and it’s a scent I’ll always associate with that, (£45).
For the jewellery obsessed…
Top to bottom:
Tiffany: Who doesn’t want to see that little turquoise box under the tree at Xmas? This year Tiffany have a host of new gift ideas and I for one wouldn’t mind a necklace.
MeMe London: The cute ‘Mummy knows best’ necklace is so delicate, so cute and perfect for those new (or older) yummy mummies (£80).
For the beauty obsessed…
Clockwise from top:
Estée Lauder: Across the blog it’s no secret I’m a HUGE fan of Estée Lauder. So for the beauty obsessed, my hero pieces that every girl needs to own are… Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush (£29), Micro-Algae Pore Minimising Hydra Lotion (£36) Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Foundation (£32.50), Brow Now Gel (£18.50)
Remington: A new exciting launch from this family favourite brand, AIR3D. A dryer costing £199 that’s good enough to challenge even the Dyson dryer. It has two shine enhancing conditioning technology (thanks to a ceramic grille infused with micro conditioners) and an ionic generator which eliminate frizz and leave your hair sleek and shiny.
Philosophy: The ‘All A Glow’ gift set (£39.50) comes with their lovely ‘Purity made simple’ cleanser, the ‘microdelivery peel crystals and activating gel’ and their famous ‘Renewed hope in a jar’ refreshing & refining moisturiser.
Fragrances: Replica (Maison Margiela) £85, JPG Classique Wonder Woman (£72.50), Prada La Femme (£100) Narciso Rodriguez ‘For Her’ (from £40), Lady Million (£75), Michael Kors Sexy Ruby (from £46), Nina Ricci Luna (£46)
For the skincare obsessed…
Omorovicza: I wrote about these previously (in my post here). Omorovicza are the most indulgent of luxury skincare that really works. This gift set combines the popular ‘gold’ products which aims to defy the ageing effect on our skin. In the set (£300), you get the Gold Rescue Cream (Sample – 5ml, powered by a potent thermal water-in-oil barrier formulation). The Gold Eye Lift (15ml) which reduces the appearance of wrinkles and renews the appearance of youthful elasticity. Gold Night Drops (30ml) which is a triple action night treatment that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and hydrates and nourishes the skin at night. Lastly you also get my favourite, the Gold Flash Firming Serum (30ml) which is an oil-free, silky anti-ageing serum that instantly soothes and firms the face and neck.
