Hello sugar plums! I hope you’re all having a magical start to December, decorating your trees, getting cosy and watching all of your favourite festive films. For those who are yet to make a start on their Christmas shopping, I’ve popped together a whole host of perfectly pretty presents to treat someone special someone with this holiday season (and I totally wouldn’t blame you if you add it all onto your own Christmas wishlist too, just sayin’…)
The Too Faced Christmas Tree Ornament makes the perfect little treat for any beauty lover. Containing a miniature of the best-selling Better Than Sex mascara housed inside an adorable pink velvet Christmas tree, that you can of course save to use as a cute Christmas decoration. Ideal for a sweet little stocking filler!
Too Faced have dreamed up an absolutely gorgeous Christmas collection this year full of girly pink treats, so if you’d like to read more about their larger gift sets, I posted about them here and here.
Another cute addition to the Too Faced Christmas range this year is the oh so sweet Sugar Cookie Palette*, which has the most adorable packaging adorned with little iced cookies. Inside you’ll find eight super sweet eyeshadows ranging from soft chocolatey browns, to candy pinks and frosted silvers, and they all smell like delicious cupcakes and vanilla frosting! The palette is such a cute little size which makes it perfect for stockings and secret Santa gifts.
I had to include this Ted Baker Ballerina Necklace as it’s just so dainty and special. Wearing a graceful pink tutu, the ballerina pendant is set on a delicate chain and has gorgeous rose gold details complete with a pretty pearl. It reminds me of the musical jewellery boxes that have a delicate spinning ballerina in the centre. It’s utterly precious and would make such a unique gift. The Ted Baker jewellery always comes so perfectly presented inside a pretty pink gift box with a soft grey, velvet pouch, making it super easy to gift and extra special to receive.
A Christmas limited edition that I always look forward to is the Philosophy Amazing Grace fragrance which is released each year as a special holiday edition. This year it has festive pink packaging complete with a fluffy pink pom pom, which is just all kinds of adorable. The scent itself is clean, fresh and feminine, it’s no wonder it’s their best selling perfume and it’s one of my personal favourites as it’s so easy to wear. I really think it’s such a universal scent, any woman could wear it and feel lovely.
As always the Ted Baker Beauty Christmas gifting range is nothing short of perfection, with a whole host of gorgeous bath and body products and luxe accessories. I picked out the Sweet Kisses gift set, containing a trio of luxurious rose-tinted lipsticks that are sure to make you feel mistletoe ready! I also chose the Fragrant Jewels Soap Trio, presented so perfectly in pretty pink matchbox style packaging. I actually love keeping their packaging to store little things in, as they are always really durable and are far too precious to throw away. I’m also heart eyed over the Bathed In Blooms Soap Petals, the Lavish Lips and Tips makeup set as well as the dreamy A Brush With Glory makeup brushes.
The Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb* perfume makes for a dreamy fragrance to gift, with a gorgeous scent that smells like a bouquet of fresh flowers with a powdery feminine undertone. I’ve always adored the branding for the Flowerbomb perfume and the swoon worthy blush pink and luxe black packaging. The Travel Set* is perfect for the girl on the go, containing three travel sized sprays and a pretty blush pink atomiser. I’m also heart eyed over this glittering pink gift set which comes with 50ml perfume and a handbag friendly size.
I had to feature the oh so talented Megan Hess who creates the most beautiful high fashion illustrations, and has written multiple books that any girl who loves luxury fashion and beautiful imagery needs to own! In my collection I have Coco Chanel: The Illustrated World Of A Fashion Icon, Paris: Through A Fashion Eye and The Dress: 100 Iconic Moments In Fashion, all of which I just adore and I can’t wait to collect more. You’ll honestly want to frame every single page!
As this gift guide would suggest, I think anything Ted Baker makes a beautiful gift. I treated myself to this dreamy pink Ted Baker bag on Black Friday that I’d been lusting after for a while, aswell as the matching Aureole Purse. They both have a pretty bow detail and a lovely textured leather effect which gives it a such a luxe feel. I also adore the Lydia Scalloped Purse which is embellished with little pearls!
Finding the Benefit Gimmie Some Sugar gift set underneath the Christmas tree would be the icing on the cake! The elaborate packaging, which is designed to resemble a fancy pink tiered cake, wins all the awards for creativeness and I will definitely be keeping it for Christmas decor. Inside is filled with a bundle of decadent treats, including two of my personal favourites; Hoola bronzer and Roller Lash mascara, as well as a Porefessional primer and High Beam highlighter, all of which are full size.
Indulge in some little luxuries from MOR Boutique’s dreamy Marshmallow* beauty range with a selection of gorgeous bath and body treats that will leave you smelling like sugar-kissed rose petals. Created with a blend of sweet marshmallow and vanilla, mixed with white carnation and snow musk, which gives it a fanciful and luxurious scent. I have a handful of petite sized items which are super handy for travel and perfect for lovely stocking fillers, but the deluxe products also look absolute gorgeous and totally display worthy.
