Christmas is fast approaching, so there isn't much time left to get gifting! Luckily I've been compiling some of the best presents to gift us girls to this year...
Starting with the gorgeous Elie Saab Le Parfum Eau de Parfum 50ml (£58.00 Boots). Featuring top notes of orange blossom, middle notes of jasmine and base notes of white honey, cedar, rose and patchouli, this fragrance is floral, feminine and intoxicating. It also packs a lot of power, so it is not a scent for the subtle girls; it is strong and intense and lasts for hours. Elie Saab Le Parfum is a classic fragrance that deserves a spot on any girl's dressing table.
Another fabulous fragrance option is the Philosophy Amazing Grace Set (£36.00 John Lewis). Amazing Grace is Philosophy's most-loved fragrance, so it's no surprise the American brand put together this scented set for the holiday season. It includes the Amazing Grace Eau de Toilette 60ml, Amazing Grace Body Cream 120ml and Amazing Grace Shower Gel 240ml. The fragrance itself is clean and beautifully feminine, featuring top notes of mandarin orange, grapefruit and bergamot, middle notes of freesia, jasmine and rose and a base note of musk. What makes this gift set a real steal is that the fragrance alone cost £34.00, so you're basically getting the other two products for just £2.00!
These next two gifts are for girls who love their locks; the SHOW Beauty Pure Treatment Oil 60ml (£50.00 lookfantastic.com) and TONI&GUY Limited Edition Fluid Metal Gift Set (£44.99 toniandguy.com). SHOW's Beauty Pure Treatment Oil is a thick luxurious oil that applies evenly and easily though the hair without leaving a greasy finish. It is the perfect product for very dry or processed hair, as it keeps strands soft, glossy and healthy. It smells absolutely gorgeous and, being one of my favourite beauty discoveries of 2015, deserves to be gifted!
The second hair hero, TONI&GUY's Limited Edition Fluid Metal Gift Set, features a sexy styler that straightens, curls and creates waves quickly and effortlessly. It is designed with 25mm iridescent titanium technology plates that smooth hair and enhance shine. It also has a variable temperature control (up to 230C) and a three meter salon length cord to make styling a whole lot easier.
Next we have the Benefit Get Your Party On! gift set (£39.50 benefitcosmetics.co.uk). Found in this fun carousel-style tin are some of Benefit's best selling - and greatest preforming - products, including the Hoola Bronzing Powder, High Beam Complexion Enchancer, They're Real Lengthening Mascara and Gimme Brow. This is the perfect gift for Benefit-loving babes who like contouring, bronzing, strobing, lengthening and enhancing. Trust me when I tell you that no product in this set will go unused!
Another makeup must is the Urban Decay VICE4 (£43.00 Selfridges), a limited-edition palette that features 20 striking new Urban Decay eyeshadow shades, including deep brights, gorgeous mattes and smouldering neutrals.
A wide range of colours isn't the only thing that makes VICE4 a makeup masterpiece. The palette also includes an array of different finishes, from smooth mattes and shimmering metallics to micro-glitter textures. If you are gifting a girl who loves makeup, there is no way in hell she won't love this!
Nail polishes also make perfect presents, particularly if they come from one of the sexiest nail lacquer brands around, Smith & Cult. Smith & Cult is a British beauty brand that represent individual expressions of beauty. Every one of the brand's polishes deliver flawlessly smooth coverage and stunning shine and they are all formulated without dibutyl, phthalate, toluene, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin and camphor. There are so many gorgeous Smith & Cult shades to choose from this Christmas, however my two current favourites are Filth Noir and Teen Cage Riot (£19.00 net-a-porter.com).
The final gift on the list is perfect for those who love a little luxury. It is the SK-II LXP Ultimate Revival Serum 60ml (£250.00 Harrods), an anti-ageing powerhouse that contains a high concentration of the brand's unique ingredient, Pitera, This wonder ingredient reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, controls oil production, hydrates skin, brightens complexions and smooths uneven skin. If its impressive results aren't enough, the SK-II LXP Ultimate Revival Serum also smells amazing and has a rich, velvet consistency that feels luxurious on the skin.
