Hello lovely people!

I can’t believe I haven’t blogged since July, but after a well needed break I am back for this Christmas Gift Guide and 2017! So let’s get into it –

Gift Ideas For The Skincare Lovers in Your Life


Alpha-H skin care is some of the best around and this little ‘Xmas Love’ gift set is the perfect taster of their amazing range for someone who struggles with their skin. The set contains a travel size face wash and moisturiser as well as a travel sized Liquid Gold.


Clarins giftsets are always incredible and this year is no exception. The Winter Body Essentials gift bag is no exception. The gift bag contains a 200ml Moisture-Rich Body Lotion, a 30ml Exfoliating Body Scrub For Smooth Skin and a 30ml Hand and Nail Treatment Cream all in a gorgeous which cosmetic case. The other bag pictured is the My Weekend Must Haves which includes a full size Beauty Flash Balm, Hand and Nail Treatment Cream and a One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser 50 ml, as well as three travel size products – the Wonder Perfect Mascara, the HydraQuench Cream Normal to Dry Skin cream and an Instant Eye Make-Up Remover also in a gorgeous bag.


Some of my favourite products are by Dermalogica and this fabulous gift set is perfect for any skin type. The best-selling brightening duo contains two of my must-have products– the Daily Microfolient which is an incredibly gentle yet effective exfoliator and the preclense which preps your skin for a deeper cleanse.


Jurlique is another incredible brand with fantastic products that harness the power of nature into the products. My top two picks for this Christmas would be the Rose Moisture Plus Essentials gift pack and the Limited Edition Rose Body Oil. The Rose Moisture Plus Essentials gift pack contains all you need for a glowing completion with a cleanser, balancing mist and a face cream. The Limited Edition Rose Body Oil is a gorgeous body oil that deeply hydrates.


Another great gift idea is the Essano Rosehip Gift Bag which contains a gorgeous cleanser, serum and night cream in a cute rose pink bag.

Gift Ideas For Any Makeup Lovers You May Know


Napoleon’s gorgeous Bronzer, Blush and Highlight palette is three of their best selling products all wrapped up into one stunning gold palette perfect for any lover of makeup.


MAC always sleighs (see what I did there ;) hahaha) the holiday collections and this year was no different. The Nutcracker Sweet collection offers stunning products at affordable prices and who doesn’t love MAC? Products pictured include the Red Lipgloss Set, the Warm Eye Compact, the Red Lipstick Kit and the Peach Face Compact.


Bobbi Brown’s holiday collection is right up my alley, full of deep nudes and soft hues, this is sure to impress anyone in your life. The products pictured are the Pink Truffle Brightening Blush, the Wine Eye Palette, the Golden Eye Palette, the Mini Cheek palette in French Pink as well as Luxe Lip Colours and gorgeous Nail Polish.


The Shu Uemura ‘Murakami Blossom Collection‘ is something I absolute had to include because it is without a doubt the best packaging I have ever seen so next time she asks for flowers, surprise her with this ;) Products pictured are the Blossom Nova Eye Trio and the Rouge Unlimited Sheer Shine Lipstick.


One of the biggest trend this year has been fabulous eyebrows and Booki Brow has some absolutely gorgeous, highly pigmented products that are just perfect for anyone.


Poni Cosmetics has been featured on my Instagram more than many brands as it is one of my favorites. The cruelty free products are highly pigmented and apply with absolute ease. The Contouring Kit and Mane Stain are two of my absolute must haves (and how gorgeous is the bag!?).

Makeup tools are always a good gift as no one can ever have too many brushes or sponges, from Real Techniques gorgeous gift sets to EcoTools Boho Luxe sets there is something for everyone!

Stocking Stuffers


OPI has long been regarded as one of the top nail care brands and rightfully so. The gorgeous nail colours last for weeks without chipping and always look flawless!


Sugar Baby’s set of perfumes are great stocking stuffers this Christmas as they are the perfect summer scent that easily fit in any handbag.


The YSL Mon Paris perfume is just gorgeous and any woman would love to receive this scent.


How cute are these gorgeous sheet masks from Sugar Baby Beauty and all natural Goodness products?!


The super luxe Ecstasy Lacquers by Armani are a great stocking filler too! These highly pigmented lip shines are sure to impress. Colours pictured are Nude Night and Amber Night.


Biology Skincare make stunning products that everyone in my family adores! They are gentle on sensitive skin and smell incredible!


Every year I ask for a hair brush because first of all they should be replaced often, but secondly because mine always seems to grow legs and walk to my sister’s room…… But seriously, Scunchi hairbrushes are a great stocking filler!


Hair products are always well received especially if they are good quality like these Toni and Guy products.

Candles are my favourite and this Ginger Bread candle from Endless Candles smells like Christmas! If you’d prefer a all year round candle then this one from Peppermint Grove smells less Christmassy! It smells of Summer – coconut and lychee!


Lastly, tea! Tea is a great stocking stuffer and this tea by Deitea is customizable! How cute?

I hope you managed to find some inspiration if you needed it (or maybe something cute for yourself!).

I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

Xoxo, P&P
