Budgets £5 to £50 I have you covered right here.
Some really cute stocking fillers up to the more indulgent beauty, bath, body and lifestyle. Let’s GOoooooooo.
A fun stocking filler is the Soap & Glory Wonder Woman Soap on a Rope* (£4.80). Soap and Glory do some AMAZING Christmas sets and stocking fillers and it’s so accessible and easy to buy nowadays. Their infamous Christmas STAR BUY set is always a winner and such good value too. Dry hands and nails?…A cute stocking-filler-esque type gift is the MOR Snow Gardenia hand cream* (£12.50) which is a handy 50ml size and smells absolutely beautiful. We all need a handbag in every bag and room of the house so you can never have enough of these bad boys.
Another great and easy-to-get brand is Shea Moisture and I am loving their bath and body products as much as their great haircare range. The Coconut and Hibiscus Illuminating body lotion* (£10.99) is a gorgeous scent and this body lotion is such a treat on the skin. A slightly more indulgent in price and feel is the Kiehl’s Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter (£37). This is a really thick and rich cream that I like to use almost like a mask once a week when my skin is really dry ; it smells utterly divine!
Another treat for the skin but in a pure oil form is the The NARS Monoi Body Glow (£45) oil is pure luxury, smells like a beach holiday and is made from the purest ingredients to give un-rivalled hydration, suppleness and glow on the skin. I love the simple and pretty packaging of Upcircle products and the Upcircle Coffee Body Scrub* (£14) uses leftover coffee grounds amongst other amazing ingredients to create a really wonderful, aromatic and invigorating body scrub. A great gift for all the eco-conscious beauty friends and a body scrub is always a lovely treat product I think.
I obviously can’t NOT mention Aromatherapy Associates in a bath & body gift guide so here is their nod. The most perfect Christmas present for that person who loves nothing more than a good evening soak. I would always suggest the new Forest Therapy or Deep Relax (£49) as a gifting option.
POST-POO DROPS! Now that I have your attention again…these are honestly such a wonderful gift for friends (those you know have a sense of humour!) and I’ve had nothing but great feedback when I’ve gifted these as a housewarming, dinner party, popping over type gift. Aesop post-poo drops (£20) get you and your bums involved!
HAIRCARE LOVERS? Here we are! First up = Oribe haircare. Definitely one of the most luxurious haircare brands on the market and it is super indulgent and pricey so what’s the best way to treat someone you love who are hair obsessed?! I am a big fan of their Brilliance and Shine Range (from £46) which is super gentle but gives you silky, glossy hair. I also love the Morrocanoil products for a slightly less expensive but still luxe haircare option. I think the Hydrating Hair Mask* (£25.45) is a great present.
For something a little different in the haircare category and for the person who seems to have everything, the Byredo Hair Perfumes (£50) are really lovely and they have a really strong scent too so I know a lot of people who actually use these as an alternative to their £170 perfumes!
I can’t do a lifestyle post without including my favourite Christmas candle of the year which is the Botanical Candle Company ‘Christmas Eve’ candle (from £14). It’s so aromatic, natural soy wax and it comes in 3 sizes depending on your budget.
Know someone who is ALL about keeping their nails in tip-top condition? Look no further than the super clever SensatioNail Gel Starter Kit* (£49.99)This is an at-home gel treatment kit that allows you to get salon-worthy nails that will give you 2 weeks of damage-proof wear. There are 12 shades to choose from and this starter kit gives you 10 applications/ manicures. This will save A LOAD of money if you are regularly having gels done in a salon.
Psssst any of these that are on Look Fantastic website, I have a 20% off discount : LAURA_LF which is running from now until the end of February 2020.
Have you got your eye on any of these? I’m kind of full now with all my beauty for this year but I would never say no to another candle or another Aromatherapy Associates bath oil! Let me know what you think of these bath, body and lifestyle picks.
