Last Minute Gift Ideas // Christmas Gift Guide

I can't believe how quickly this month is going by! I know it's only the 11th but before we know it, it will be Christmas Day and all over for another year (it makes me quite sad to think about). I have already finished most of my Christmas shopping as I like to be organised so I can enjoy the month. But I do have a few gifts left to buy and I know some people are last-minute shoppers so if you are one of those people, these are some great gifts to gift!

I know a lot of people have to travel home for Christmas so if you are heading to the airport why not get some Christmas shopping done in World Duty Free while you wait for your flight! I love World Duty Free and could spend some serious cash in there and if you have anyone left on your Christmas shopping list who loves beauty then I have two top picks for you! The first is the OPI Best Crew Aboard Set (£16.35) is a great pick for anyone who loves painting their nails. You really can't go wrong with OPI nail polishes, they are one of my favourite formulations of nail polish, and int his set you get five best-selling shades and the Rapidry Top Coat all in miniature size! The other gift idea is the Benefit Work Kit Girl Set (£22.90, retail of £27.50). This set includes mini sizes of Benetint, Hoola Bronzer, Rollerlash and POREfessional - I love all of these products and it's a great way to try out the brand! I am obsessed with the Rollerlash mascara so I am so happy to have another now. All four of these products come in a really pretty blue metallic cosmetic bag.

Fragrances are always something I love to gift at Christmas as I know a lot of people don't usually buy them for themselves. I love the Hollister and Abercrombie & Fitch scents and have done ever since I was a teen. For her I love the Hollister Wave 2 Gift Set (£32), I know someone who would love this for Christmas! This comes with a 50ml perfume and a 100ml body lotion. For the men in your life, I highly recommend the Abercrombie & Fitch First Instinct (£46). This launched back in 2016 and has top notes of Aromatic Gin & Tonic Accord, Kiwano Melon, heart notes of Spicy Szechuan Pepper, Violet Leaves and Tangy Citrus with base notes of Sueded Musk and Raw Amber. A slightly more affordable fragrance option for men is the Ted Baker Ag Tonics Gift Set (£34). This comes with a 100ml Eau de Toilette and a 100ml body wash which is really great value for money! This is a really great fragrance which has notes of fresh violet leaf, cool eucalyptus and smoky leather. And for her from Ted Baker, I have fallen in love with the Polly Fragrance Gift Set (£24). This comes in gorgeous packaging and inside the box, you get a 30ml perfume and a stunning compact mirror. This fragrance is the perfect sweet treat with notes of mandarin, red berries and peach and vanilla (as well as many others).

If you need a couple of token gifts or just a little something extra then I have you covered! From L'Occitane the Verbena Festive Bauble (£12) is one of my top picks! This includes three mini-sized products in a reusable bauble! You get a body lotion, hand cream and a soap. The Perfect Twist Blur It Cracker from Eborian (£15) is a great gift for someone who loves trying base products! This comes with the BB Nude Cream which I have had incredible things about as well as the Pink Perfect Cream. And my final last minute gift idea is pretty much foolproof if you're not sure what to get someone and it is the Harlequin Savanna Eye Mask (£16). This comes in a gorgeous gift box and this is a little something luxury that you wouldn't typically buy for yourself and I have been using mine for a few weeks and I do really love it. It's lavender scented and this scent always helps me fall asleep quicker.
