As I mentioned in my blog yesterday, all this week I will talking about both budget and luxury gift guides for women and men. Today it’s the turn of the luxury gift guide for that special women in your life; your Mum, Grandma, Auntie, Sister or best friend.
One of the best-selling palettes this year, the Hourglass Ambient Lighting trio powder collection is must have for make up lovers everywhere. With three beautiful shades these powders soften, brighten and conceal imperfection on the skin.
Not only are the products themselves gorgeous, but the packaging is just as beautiful; and very compact to pop in your bag or suitcase.
For the person that loves to read, a Kindle couldn’t be more perfect. There are quite a few Kindles on the market at the moment, but they range from £59.99 to around £170 depending on the functionality you’re looking for. For me, if I am giving a Kindle to someone who loves to read, the classic Kindle is brilliant. With a backlit screen eliminating glare and a full battery charge lasting weeks, these devices make reading easier than ever before. And especially if they like to carry books around with them or on holiday, they will just need to take the Kindle freeing up lots of room, and if travelling, that all important luggage weight – it’s surprising how heavy books can be!
What’s more, many of the classic books are free to download and best selling books can be downloaded at a fraction of the cost of a paper or hardback book.
A brand that has come to the forefront on the beauty industry this past year and a favourite with YouTube beauty guru’s, the Emma Hardie Cleaning Balm is perfect for the person that loves to take extra special care of their skin – the one’s that have a beauty regime that last an hour each morning!
A botanical cleansing balm, it leaves the skin clean, soft and fragrant; removing all traces of make up (including any eye make up). It leaves the face silky smooth boosting the skin with plant extracts and vitamin E. It also comes with a cleansing cloth that boasts a unique micro fibre purposely designed to deliver deep, but gentle, pore cleansing.
For the bag-a-holic you know this Michael Kors cross body bag is the ideal Christmas present. Ridiculously stylish, the bag is small in size but makes a big fashion statement when worn with any outfit. The soft grey is my favourite colour, but it’s available in an array of shades to suit the personality of the person receiving it. The leather is the brands signature material, and the bag is finished with silver hardware, including the classic Michael Kors logo.
This body collection from Laura Mercier is perfect for that person that loves to pamper themselves, or even the person that doesn’t pamper themselves enough.
Creating a rich bath experience, this Luxe set includes a creme body wash, souffle body creme, honey bath plus wooden honey dipper and eau de toilette. The creation and blend of gourmande ingredients leaves the skin feeling clean and soft, as though you’ve been pampered at a luxury spa all day.
Tomorrow we will have the first part of the mens gift guide, starting with the budget buys, and then finishing with the luxury gifts on Wednesday. If you’d like me to write a kids gift guide, let me know and I can post one later this week.
