A Beauty & Lifestyle Christmas Gift Guide

Has anyone actually finished their Christmas shopping? It's the 7th of December and would say I am a good chunk nearly finished but obviously there is still more bits to go. So to get finally into the festive spirit on the blog, I thought I'd pull together a Beauty and Lifestyle gift guide which is fillded with some of my favourite Christmas purchases this year. 

Lonely Planet's Ultimate Travelist £13.99 - Here's hoping my mum doesn't go and read my blog post this year, but I've gotten her and my dad this book which is filled with 500 of the best places in the world to visit. I think this book is an absolutely gorgeous present to gift, it's not only just a lovely coffee table book, but is filled with so much travel inspiration that I know my Mum and Dad will love. 

Papier 2020 Diary £21.99- I am a big fan of a paper diary and I know so many people who still use them. I'm really funny about my diaries, they have to have big enough sections and be week by week. I've gotten this one for my mum personalised, but Papier has a whole range of amazing diaries and delivery doesn't take that long either. 

BareMinerals Metal-Eyes Gift Set* - £32.00 - BareMinerals have some of the prettiest gift sets and every year they come out with some gorgeous bits. This year their Metal Eyes kit is the perfect gift for those who love a bit of Christmas eye shimmer. It comes with three liquid eyeshadows which are all different metallic shades including a pale gold, rose gold and a bronze/pink gold. The set is also worth £60 so it's such an amazing deal. 

Chloe Perfume - Perfume is quite a funny gift and think you can go either really right or wrong with it. I always ask for a Chloe Perfume as it's my signature scent, and it's a fail safe present, so I think if you know your best friend, Grandma's or Mum's favourite perfume, you can never go wrong with getting them a backup, they'll always use it! 

Accessorize Jewellery - In my opinion Accessorize has some of the prettiest pieces of jewellery on the high street. It's pretty much a regular shopping destination for all presents for my friends as they are such lovely quality and have so many pretty dainty pieces. 

Cath Kidston Pyjamas £55- Last year I purchased some adorable London themed Pyjamas for my Mum from Cath Kidston, and this year my flatmate found these for her mum. They are Christmas Village PJ sets with the most adorable Christmas scenery on them. She purchased these in Bicester so they don't have them online, but they do have a similar pink set that I've linked. Their pj's are incredible quality and are so cosy and warm.

Lindt Chocolate - Okay obviously it's not Christmas without a bit of Lindt. Whether it's an advent calendar, a stocking filler or one of those big Teddy Lindt Bears which if you buy one £1 is donated to NSPCC  I think Lindt Chocolate is the perfect gift this Christmas. 

BodyShop Hand Cream Christmas Cracker £25  - For £25 you get 6 of Body Shop's hand creams including; Mango, British Rose, Moringa, Strawberry, Shea Butter and Almond Milk and Honey. You can either gift the set as one, or divide them amongst friends and family as a stocking filler. They are already so beautifully wrapped and I love how nourishing these hand creams are.

What will you be asking for this Christmas? Let me know in the comments below! 



  1. I love this gift guide!! You definitely can't go wrong with getting someone a planner as the New Year approaches :) xx

  2. Love your picks! The travel book is such a good idea. I bought half of my Christmas gifts but I already have a few ideas on what to buy next, so it shouldn't take long. I'm hoping to unwrap a planner and a calendar from Rifle paper and a new curling iron :) x
