Christmas Gift Guide 2017: Beauty

So, the tree’s are out, the Costa cups are fully in swing and the bank accounts are getting drained. What better time for a gift guide? Here, I have rounded up my favourite picks of the beauty gifts this year. Note- these aren’t the most conventional, pop-into-Debenhams kinda gifts, as I love to support slightly smaller companies who make excellent products! There’s a lot to get through so let’s get cracking.


MOA BATH POTION* (£27.50) I mentioned this on my Instagram and if you follow me you’ll know how much I cherish this brand. MOA is a cruelty-free, vegan, natural and organic brand that makes a great option for a gift. The bath potion is a magical liquid to use in your bath that smells of peppermint and fennel- perfect for the winter blues. Also, check out that packaging *heart eyes*!

MOOGOO STOCKING STUFFER (£8)* I’ll be giving this to someone who likes things simple. No fussy smells and textures, just good quality products. In this pack you get the lip balm, a soap (very nourishing, smells amazing), a moisturiser and a hand cream- all someone would need to keep in their bag or take on an evening away. This makes the perfect stocking filler or a smaller gift for someone, but still a great option!

BALANCE ME COCOON ME SET* (£30) This gift set if for all of the rose lovers out there. It’s a luxurious shower gel and body lotion in their famous rose otto scent which is gorgeous. Balance Me is a great brand that not everyone may be too familiar with. Do your friends and family a favour and introduce them to this lovely brand. If you want something more affordable, try the illuminating face oil (£10)


GREEN PEOPLE BODY SET* (£22.95) Green people, a local brand, is a great option for those who are more health or environment conscious. I love the simplicity of their products and how they manage to make natural skincare still feel luxurious. This set contains the Forest and Fruit shower gel and body lotion, a scent I think would be great for men as well!

THE BODY SHOP BODY BUTTERS (£15) Now we all know and love these products so I don’t have to explain why they’re so great. The range of scents is amazing and suits everyone. The reason I’m mentioning them is that The Body Shop offer free personalisation on the body butter. Check your local store now!

So that’s my edit for now. Of course, there are loads of amazing sets out there you could buy but it’s a very personal choice. I’d also recommend going to LUSH, Jo Malone and Molton Brown for great gift options! Next up I’ll be talking about non-beauty items including a fun DIY.

Items marked with a * were sent to me kindly by the brands. I am under no obligation to mention them or give a positive review. Contains affiliate links.
