’tis the season
Hello snow angels, today I’m sharing with you my oh so pink and girly Christmas gift guide, that I have loved putting together for many years now! It’s full of perfectly pretty presents, that all girly girls and pink princess dreamers would be delighted to unwrap this Christmas.
Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Gift Sets
As a lover of the iconic Pillow Talk range from my favourite makeup brand Charlotte Tilbury, I was super excited about these two dreamy new Christmas gift sets! Dressed up in luxurious quilted pink packaging, the Pillow Talk Lip Secrets set contains the classic Pillow Talk lip liner which I adore and wear everyday, it’s the perfect nude pink and is super long lasting. As well as the Pillow Talk Matte Revolution Lipstick to match, a Pillow Talk Collagen Lip Bath, and a Pillow Talk Jewel Lips lip gloss, it’s the perfect set for an angelic soft pink pout!
The Pillow Talk Push Up Eye Secrets contains the dreamy new Push Up Lashes Mascara that I’ve been so eager to try, alongside a Barberella Brown Rock ‘N’ Kohl eye liner. The pink packaging is just dreamy and I am always so impressed with the quality of Charlotte Tilbury products.
Estée Lauder Lip Luxuries Gift Set
From Estée Lauder is the sweetest little Lip Luxuries lip care duo, which makes for such a cute little gift. Containing a Colour Replenish Lip Balm and a Nighttime Rescue Lip Oil Serum, to soothe and soften lips and give a natural looking tint. The Pure Color Envy lip products have been on my wishlist for a while, so I was smitten when I saw them perfectly presented inside the prettiest pink and gold packaging, with sparkles and a gold bow.
Katie Loxton Candle*
Katie Loxton is brand I always look to for lovely gifts and their range of candles are just perfect for gifting. I have the ‘Tis The Season To Sparkle Candle*, which has a gorgeous warm, festive scent of cinnamon and nutmeg, and I think it also looks lovely as Christmas decor. I believe this one was from last year, but this year they have a similar candle called Leave a Little Sparkle, which has a scent of sweet vanilla and salted caramel inspired by cosy moments and Christmas baking!
Essie Ballet Slippers Nail Polish
I had to include this beautiful edition of Essie’s Ballet Slippers Nail Polish which is one of the brand’s most popular shades, and it would make a lovely little stocking filler. It’s such a pretty soft manicure pink shade, which is so elegant and natural looking on the nails. This version has a beautiful limited edition bottle with dainty ballet slippers adorning the packaging. I think I will cherish my bottle forever!
Too Faced Swan Mascara Ornament
The Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Ornament is what princess dreams are made of! Containing a travel size Better Than Sex mascara dressed up with little snowflakes, and encased in the sweetest princess swan packaging. It’s so perfect and would look lovely hanging on a pink wonderland christmas tree! I also love the look of the Enchanted Wonderland and Enchanted Forest makeup sets from Too Faced this year, which look fit for royalty in magical pastel packaging.
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Gift Set
I always look forward to the Viktor & Rolf Christmas gift sets as they are always packaged to pure perfection, and you can always count on them to bring the pink sparkles. I’m starry-eyed over the Flowerbomb Gift Set this year which contains a 50ml Flowerbomb perfume, 50ml Shower Gel and 50ml Body Lotion, inside a show stopping, pink and silver glittering star gift box. It is truly magical and would be a gorgeous gift to find underneath the tree. The perfume itself smells like a dream, it’s one of my favourite fragrances and my most worn this year! Also from their Christmas gift range is the Flowerbomb perfume in a stunning starry limited editon bottle!
SLMissGlam Pink Mini Brush Set*
If you’re looking for the cutest, girliest brushes in all the land, then look no further than to SLMissGlam who creates the prettiest makeup brushes and beauty accessories. The Pink Mini Brush Set* is an 8 piece essential set of pink glam brushes in a adorable mini size, tucked away in a gorgeous pink gift box. The brushes are super soft and fluffy, and look truly gorgeous on your vanity.
Pink Wireless Earbuds
I purchased these cute little pink earbuds from Amazon recently, and have been so impressed that I thought they deserved a spot in my gift guide. The colour is a really pretty pale pink and they work perfectly for such a good price. They are definitely a good affordable option to real Apple AirPods. (They are currently out of stock in pink, so here are some pretty pink alternatives from Urban Outfitters and SkinnyDip.)
Mistletoe Kisses Christmas Cookies
As you may know I run a cake business called Catherine Marie Cake and I have recently started taking postal orders. I created a full Christmas range this year that I was so excited to share, but my favourite of all my Christmas releases is this Mistletoe Kisses cookie set. With five magical vanilla sugar cookies in a luxury pink gift box, tied with a ribbon. I wish my front door could look as pretty as the sparkling pink door cookie! These boxes have sold out and I am so grateful to everyone who has purchased a box!
Embellished Bow Ballet Flats
For a touch of sparkle are the most darling pair of pink satin ballet flats from ASOS. They are embellished with beautiful glittering bows which make them perfect for the festive season, and they definitely look more expensive than they are! I love them so much that I’m also tempted by the classic black satin pair that I could so see Blair Waldorf wearing.
