So it’s FINALLY December and time to start thinking about all things Christmas! Mine may be a little bit different to a lot of Gift Guides out there…. I’ve rounded up some affordable, fun products that can be used as stocking fillers or small additions for beauty lovers everywhere!
The first category I want to natter about is Bath & Body including a few familiar brands and some newbies you may not have heard of… I wanted to include some simple The Body Shop shower products because I just love them. I’ve actually bought these for myself because they smell incredible and leave your skin feeling smooth. These are priced at £5 each for a 250ml bottle but The Body Shop always has offers online and instore – I managed to bag these with 40% off recently.
Next up are these Mad Beauty Bath Bombs* which are perfect for popping in the bath and relaxing, they even smell good too! Price at only £5.99, it makes these babies less than £2 each and the last for three baths too! They’re perfect for your mum, partner or your busy auntie.
This Soap & Glory Pink Me Up set is the perfect mini to throw in a gift bag as a little extra. They’re both scented with the Original Pink fragrance which is light and girly, lovely for a younger sister or niece. It’s available from Boots for £5 and is included in their 3 for 2 offer so you can pick up a few at a time.
Now there’s Make Up to chat about; these may be the perfect gifts for that awkward teenager or Secret Santa at work. I love these mini Santa & Snowman duck lip balms* from Mad Beauty because they’re just hilarious. They’re cherry & vanilla scented and they’re perfect for slipping in a stocking as something a bit different from candy canes and chocolates – they’re so much fun! They’re priced at £3.50 each and available on their website.
The KISS Lashes* are perfect for that glamourous lady in your life who always goes that extra mile. There are plenty of different styles of these lashes with more natural looking ones and thick full lashes, perfect or party season. You can pick these up from Boots from £5.99.
The Soap & Glory Lip, Lip Hooray set is one of my favourites this year, it’s simple and something I’ll be keeping for myself! It includes three mini lipsticks with two gloss sticks and a matte lip pencil which is right up my street with the berry colour. This is available in Boots for £8.50 and is, again, included in their 3 for 2 offer.
I’ve also included this mini Leighton Denny Two Of A Kind Collection* which I think is so cute! It has two shades of a dark plum with gold flecks and a rose gold shimmery shade for a more understated look. This just screams Christmas to me with the gold tones and would be perfect as a little extra something. You can pick this up for £10 from Feel Unique.
My last two are pretty random ones but I thought they were both worthy of a place in this post. First up is the Forest & Shore Hallelujah Hair Oil* which is designed for dry/damaged hair to give it that extra nourishment. Having greasy hair, this product doesn’t suit me too well but I have the perfect person in mind for this – my sister. It’s especially good for this time of year when the harsh weather strips your hair of moisture. I’ll be popping this one in my sister’s stocking adding a little extra luxury for her haircare routine. You can pick this up for £14.99 on Amazon.
Last up are these ADORABLE Mad Beauty Hand Sanitizers* which I think are just foolproof. I love a good hand sanitizer and they’re perfect for just popping in your handbag which makes them great for anyone on the go with a busy lifestyle. They’re a bit different as they’re not the gel formula but a spray which just melts into the skin. They have a good selection of scents and they’re priced at £2.99 each.
So there we have it, my complete and quirky stocking filler gift guide which I hope has given you some inspiration for over the coming weeks. Thanks for reading!
