The countdown to Christmas 2021 is finally here! This year I am very excited for Christmas, even though we still aren't out of the COVID woods yet I still feel like we deserve to celebrate. With Christmas approaching, that means it's time to start Christmas shopping! If you are like me you will think that you're done shopping and then realise you still have more bits to get then this is the gift guide for you! Whether you're gifting yourself or a special someone I hope this guide will help you out this Christmas. 

Lush Bath Bombs 

If I'm ever struggling with a gift for someone then I always pop into Lush and I'll find something right away. There are so many different options for anyone who loves bath bombs so Lush is definitely the best place to go to for gifts. One of my favourite bath bombs from Lush has to be Snow Fairy, its a Christmas Limited Edition bath bomb and I love to get a few of these to give as extra little gifts for people and I also make sure that I have an extra one for myself. Some other bath bombs that I love gifting people for Christmas is Shoot for the stars, Jingle Bells and Snowball all classic Lush favourites that are perfect Christmas gifts. Lush have lovely gift sets but sometimes they don't have the exact bath bombs I want so I make up my own by getting two or three bath bombs and getting some cellophane and ribbon and these make such cute stocking fillers or little add on gifts!


UGG Slippers 

Now that I have had a pair of UGG slippers I don't think I'll ever go back to any other brands! They are a little pricey but they are definitely worth it. I have the Scuffette II Slippers in Chesnut which I got as a Christmas gift back in 2019 and they are still going strong. When I first put these slippers on it really felt like I was walking on clouds (cheesy I know but true!). UGG slippers are the perfect gift for literally anyone and there are so many different options on colours and styles that there's definitely a pair out there that everyone will love. A lot of places are still doing some great cyber week deals so if you want to get a pair make sure to shop around for a bit and get a good deal!  

Perfume Sets

You can never go wrong with gifting someone perfume, there's always a perfume that people love and I think it's a lovely gift to give people their favourite perfume, I know it's a gift that I would love to receive. At Christmas, there are always new releases of perfume gift sets which I love because they have cuter Christmas packaging and they are usually better valued for money. A perfume that I love is Chanel No 5 and because it is so pricey so it is a perfume that I would only ever ask for at Christmas. Some sets that I've seen online which I think are a great deal are Mugler Alien Gift Set for £60, Jimmy Choo I Want Choo Gift Set for £65 and Izzy Miyake Rose & Rose Gift Set for £66. The next few days is probably the last time that you will be able to get any last-minute cyber deals so snap them up quickly. 

Skincare 

Every year I always gift someone a skincare set, it is the best way to get a good range of products for them to try. I like to always buy from a fancy brand because using the products should be a treat for the person receiving them. This year I got products from Pestle & Mortar for someone I won't mention who because they are probably reading this post but it's a brand that I haven't tried before but I've heard amazing things about. Another thing I like to do is to create my own Christmas hamper, last year I made one for my mum and added lots of skincare, body care and makeup products and it was the perfect gift, I like making my own hampers because you can add your own products that you know the person your gifting it to will love. Some other Skincare sets that I've seen that I think will make great gifts are Youth To The People The Youth Minimalist Kit £39, Wishful My Mini Routine £37 and The Ordinary The Balance Set £23. 

Instax Mini 11 Camera 

This camera is such a perfect gift for anyone who loves photography, I got this as a gift last Christmas and absolutely loved it so I thought it would be perfect to add to this year's gift guide. This gift can be given to literally anyone, I still use this camera a lot and a new tradition I started was taking a picture of my Christmas tree each year and keeping all of the polaroids. Another thing you can do with this is you can gift someone the camera but also take loads of different polaroids of things that they love and create an album and gift the two together. I will be taking this camera with me for Christmas day this year and when I finally go on holiday again next year to capture loads of memories and I feel like polaroids just make every picture look cute how do they do that?!

Elegance The Beauty of French Fashion Book 

I don't think I've seen a book as pretty as this one before, you probably recognise it from some of the photos I've taken recently and it's been in the background. If you know anyone that loves fashion then they would definitely love this book, the photos in this book are so beautifully drawn and it's filled with the most gorgeous drawings of different designs from french designers. You could also gift this book to someone like me who does flatlay photography because it makes any flatlay look gorgeous with this book in the background. You can also gift this book to someone who is decorating their home because it would also make for a perfect coffee table book. If you would like to get a set of books you can also get Iconic: The masters of Italian Fashion and Paris: Through The Fashion Eye. Megan Hess is the illustrator of all of these gorgeous books and I think I'm going to start a collection of these books because they are so pretty!


I Heart Revolution Heartbreakers Palettes

If you have been reading my blog for a while you will know that I am obsessed with I Heart Revolutions Heartbreakers palettes and I think a collection of these palettes would make a perfect gift for any beauty lover out there. These palettes are the best, they are of amazing quality, you get a good selection of different shades and they are really affordable at only £5. You could get a selection of 4 different palettes put them together in some cellophane with a bow and it could make a lovely gift for anyone who loves makeup and you would have only spent £20! My favourite of the Heart Breakers Palettes is Courage (red palette), Majestic (Nude palette) and Lucky (Green palette), they have so many different colour combinations of this palette that you can create a lovely but also an affordable gift for someone.
