It’s the most wonderful time of the year and I’ve been eager to share my annual girly Christmas Gift Guide! It’s brimming with perfectly pretty presents that I have hand-picked to help you check off your Christmas shopping list. These ideas are perfect for treating those who love all things pink, sparkly and luxurious. If you’re anything like myself you’ll probably end up adding more than a few things onto your own wishlist too…
Every year I am in awe of Viktor & Rolf’s fragrance gift sets as they are always so beautifully packaged, and the dreamy scent whisks you away into floral wonderland. This year’s Flowerbomb Gift Set is truly packaged to perfection in an utterly stunning snowflake shaped box, with wintery whites and soft ballerina pinks, and is fully coated in sparkling glitter. The box opens to reveal a gorgeous snowy scene with the perfume sitting centre stage, alongside a body-lotion and shower-gel. It’s such a special gift that any pink princess would be delighted to see underneath their Christmas tree. It would be lovely to keep the box to use as winter decor each year!
The gorgeous Anastasia Beverly Hills Holiday Loose Glitter Kit is sure to set hearts aflutter this festive season. Featuring five magical loose glitters each with a different colour reflex, and a glitter adhesive for budge-proof embellishment. The glitters sit pretty inside a gorgeous glittery pink box with an iridescent snowflake sleeve. It’s pure perfection and would make such a beautiful gift for any beauty lover.
I can always count on Ted Baker for gorgeous gifts, as well as a never-ending wishlist for myself. The Teddiee Monogram Scarf is an elegant pale pink with delicate woven branding and feels luxuriously soft. It’s such a lovely timeless accessory that can be dressed up or down. Also from Ted Baker is the sweetest Heart To Heart Locket in a romantic rose gold, engraved with a dainty heart pattern and intricate details on the chain. The necklace is so pretty and unique, and you could personalise it by adding a little sentimental photo inside.
As I’ve said previously in my Pink Winter Princess Gift Guide, I’ve totally fallen for the Laura Ashley beauty range this year, in particular the Heritage Bloom Set. The set includes a selection of luxury handcare products with a signature scent inspired by an English garden in bloom. They come housed inside a pretty pink keepsake tin that would be lovely to use to store trinkets and treasures!
Live To Dream
From one of my favourite accessory brands is the oh so chic Katie Loxton Perfect Pouch*, made from lovely quality vegan leather in a pretty pearly white, and finished with the golden sentiment ‘live to dream‘. The pouches are available for personalisation which I think adds such a sweet sentimental touch. I was kindly gifted this item with my initials ‘CM’ in the righthand corner which makes it extra special! Also from Katie Loxton is the Goodnight Beautiful Eye Mask in a darling pink satin with ‘goodnight beautiful‘ embroidered in white. It’s so dreamy and princessy!
One of my favourite fragrances that I always recommend is Philosophy’s Amazing Grace Perfume, as it’s such a lovely fresh and feminine scent that is really beautiful on all ages. I couldn’t resist featuring the Amazing Grace Candle which has the same gorgeous scent as the perfume, and is also lovely to keep it as a decor piece to prettify any girly dressing table.
Each year I get so excited for Too Faced to reveal their Christmas collections as they are always so cute and girly! The main set that really stood out to me this year is the Christmas Cookie House Party* which has an adorable gingerbread house design complete with gumdrops, pink sweeties, peppermint candies, and sugary frosting. The gingerbread house is formed of three breakaway palettes all with a delicious gingerbread cookie scent! Inside is filled with multi finish eyeshadows and dazzling glitters, as well as a blush, bronzer and a highlight. Also included is a Gingerbread Man melted matte lipstick, a mini Better Than Sex mascara and Shadow Insurance eye primer.
Pretty Little Presents
Perfect for a little stocking filler is the Pretty Little Present from Too Faced, in an adorable gingerbread house cubed ornament. It opens up to reveal a mini Better Than Sex Mascara and mini Rich & Dazzling Lip Gloss wrapped up in pastel pink tissue paper. The Better Than Sex Mascara Ornament is also super cute little idea with festive gingerbread packaging, and the tube itself has been dressed up with sweet candy cane stripes. I only wish they did this in a full size version too because it’s so cute!
I don’t know any princess who wouldn’t adore a little luxury from Charlotte Tilbury, as the makeup products are always so glamorous and worth every penny. I’m heart-eyed over the Pillow Talk Diamonds Lipstick which is a beautiful shade of sheer rose pink with dazzling diamond sparkles for a truly magical pout. The pink packaging it comes in is so pretty with little shimmering gems.
Luxury fashion illustrator Megan Hess recently released a new book which I couldn’t wait to add to my collection, and it would be a gorgeous gift for anyone who loves fanciful illustrations and chic designer fashion! Elegance is all about the beauty of French fashion designers from Chanel to Dior, to Chloé, and everything is so perfectly illustrated, I always want to frame every page!
