Hey guys, hope you’re all well
This is the first week I really started to think about Christmas presents , and I’ve realized that I have a million people to shop for this year! To be honest Christmas to me is a bit stressful. I don’t know why but I tend to put a lot of pressure on myself to get the perfect gift to each and every person on my list. Every year I kind of geek out and do a lot or research to make sure I got a fail-proof gift for everybody. So I thought it would be a good idea to do a “Christmas gift guide” just to share what I would get to my friends and family with you guys. This post will be all about HER, It goes form beauty/pampering, to useful things,books,tech, candles, ,jewelry,fashion…I can basically guarantee that if you close your eyes and randomly point to something on this list, the recipient will adore their gift! the Christmas gift guid for him will be up next week!
Well this is a Beauty blog so of course there’s going to be some makeup products! There’s so many Christmas special releases at the moment, it’s kind of hard to choose! From who’s always lusted over maybe more expensive makeup, I used to just want that one more expensive lipstick, and it felt so special to me (it is such a small thing, but such a big thing at the same time), so don’t worry if it is just one lipstick, the girl is going to be very pleased with it anyway.

For the ladies who like to pamper, I tried to focus on things that people don’t usually like to buy for themselves, maybe because sometimes it can be a bit expensive (e.g. Bath oils can be quite pricey but still it is so nice to receive a lovely one)
1. Laura Mercier:
Sweet Temptations Ambre Vanillè Luxe Body Collection
2. The Body Shop: Fuji Green Tea Bath tea
3.Charlotte Tilbury: the gift of red carpet skin travel kit
4.Lush: Christmas Bathtime Favourites
5.Sunday Riley: Luna Sleeping Night Oil
6. Bath & Body Works: well pretty much anything from BBW is a good gift
Yes girls can be techie too, and these tech gifts will ensure more excitement than getting a pair of socks for Christmas.
I also think books can be amazing gifts, and I personally love receiving books as gifts, in particular either health/personal growth or novel books.

Fragrance & Scents
I could not do this post and not mention perfume and candles! They are one of my favourite things ever, and I feel like so many women love them too. Sometimes it can be a bit pricey so again for someone who doesn’t like to spend a lot of money on themselves it makes a lovely gifts.

Fashion, Accessories, and Jewelry
Obviously so many people get jewelry for Christmas, but if you’re someone like me who’s not really into that dainty/ feminine jewelry, got check out the Great Frog Jewelry and Uranium Mutation those are my 2 favourites Brand.
Anything that I couldn’t properly fit in categories above.
That’s everything, I really hope this has been helpful! Do you guys have anymore gift ideas to add? What was the best gift you’ve received at Christmas?
Love, Helene Xx
