Can you believe how close we are to Christmas?! This year has just flew in! I am a huge Christmas freak and LOVE everything about this time of year. The smells, the lights, the carols, the food….sorry I’m getting side tracked!
One thing I particularly enjoy Christmas shopping wise are the holiday exclusive gift sets and palettes. They are usually much better value and are a fantastic way to try several products within a brand at one go without spending a fortune. So without further ado, let’s have the first instalment of my Christmas gift guide, concentrating on the most covetable luxury beauty gifts at SpaceNK.
The first thing I would love to see under my tree is the Laura Mercier Sweet Temptations Ambre Vanilla Luxe Body Collection. This is a huge gift set and at only £49, I think you get a lot for your money. The set contains four products: a body wash; body creme; honey bath and eau de toilette, all in the beautifully sweet Ambre Vanilla scent.
Also for the bath lovers, another set that few would turn their nose up at is the Aromatherapy Associates Ultimate Bath Jewels. This little chest comes with ten mini bottles of the most popular Aromatherapy Associates bath oils. I received this gift last year and I still have some oils left. A little really does go a long way (I get about 4-5 baths out of each 9ml bottle) and a few drops scents my entire bathroom (and hall) for hours afterwards. If £58 seems ridiculously expensive, you can try one of the little bottles in the cutest star ornament for only £10. A lovely stocking stuffer.
Another gift for the beauty obsessed is the highly covetable limited edition Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Palette (read my review here). Luxurious name. luxurious product. This palette comes with three of their ambient lighting powders, an ambient bronzer and two ambient lighting blushes. Although it is pretty pricey, it is excellent for the make up obsessed lady who has yet to delve into the Hourglass brand.
Sticking with the highly desired, limited edition holiday palettes, another one I would love to see make an appearance in my Christmas gifts this year is the Nars One Shocking Moment Cheek Studio Palette. This palette packs a lot of product for the £45 price tag. You will everything you need for the cheeks including four blushes, one highlight, one contour and a generous sized pan of Nars’ cult Laguna bronzer.
Last but not least, a gift for the skincare addict is Rodial’s Dragon’s Blood Collection. Yes, this is an extravagant purchase at £120, but this set features three of the heroes from the intensely hydrating Dragon’s Blood line. You’ll get a 5oml sculpting gel, 50ml Hyaluronic mask and a 15ml eye gel. A perfect gift to crack open after the festive period to give an immediate pick me up.
What is on all of your Christmas lists?
