It’s officially December that means we can start celebrating Christmas! I wanted to do something special for Christmas on here, so I’m going to be posting (or at least trying to) every other day leading up to Christmas so stay tuned.
To kick it all off I’ve come up with a few Christmas Gift Guides and up first is my Stocking Filler gift guide.
I’ve compiled a Pinterest board with twenty plus items on it that I think would make great small beauty gifts if you’re on a lower budget. They would also work if you’re someone who likes to make you stocking style presents up for your friends and loved ones. Here are a few of my personal favourites that I love or would be happy to be given.
Jolly Golightly Bubble Bar, bubble bars are probably my favourite product that lush does. This one has an orange, lime, patchouli and clove scent, and the silver glitter is surprisingly easy to wash away after you’ve drained the water away.
Marshmallow Toasting Kit and Tea Light Fondue Sets, I love little kits like these, not to mention marshmallows always taste better when they’re a little bit melted. I remember using mini fondue kits like this at sleep overs when I was younger and they make such a great stocking filler or Secret Santa present.
Socks are always one of my favourite things to get in my stocking on Christmas morning, maybe it’s because I never seem to have any socks, I don’t know, but I love these ones from Topshop. Topshop and Accessorize are my two favourite places to look for socks, they always have the best options and they’re always so cute (my favourites are the ones with animals on the toes like these).
Travel Card holders are always a good option as a stocking stuffer present, they’re not necessarily something everyone would buy for themselves. Cath Kidson does some really nice one, I got mine in the sales last year, and I really love this alphabet one from Oliver Bonas.
Makeup Brushes and sponges make a great gifts, Real Techniques and Zoeva both do some of my favourites, and they have some amazing brush sets, the Zoeva Rose Gold Brush Set and the Real Techniques Eye Kit are two that I love and use on a daily basis. You can always mix and match a few brushes together with a couple of your favourite makeup items for your friends or someone you know who’s just getting into makeup and brushes.
Hope you found this helpful and I’ll see you again in a couple of days!
