Here’s my next Christmas gift guide and this time it’s filled with lots of different products for women, it’s one of the biggest gift guides out of them all and has so many different ideas. This is suited for all budgets as even though some things are expensive others are very affordable however they all make such lovely and thoughtful gifts for this Christmas. The first gift idea I want to share with you is from a brand called Lola’s Apothecary who create lovingly handmade products and have a belief in wellness and a holistic approach to life. This is their Sweet Lullaby Inner Light Ritual set, everything you need for a soothing and relaxing bath. The Sweet Lullaby Soothing Bath & Shower Oil smells of lavender however also has a blend of ylang ylang, sweet orange, vanilla and patchouli. Put a few drops of this into a bath will soften your water and help you relax, if you don’t have a bath this can also be used as a shower oil. I always light a candle when I have a bath as it helps me relax and this Sweet Lullaby Naturally Fragrant Candle is lavender and vanilla scented which is beautiful, lavender is actually one of my favourite scents as it really helps me unwind. There’s Rainbows & Whirlwinds Tear which you can enjoy in the bath with a drizzle of Raw Devon Summer honey from Dartmoor National Park to add a little bit of sweetness. This is such a lovely gift to give someone to help them relax and unwind.SkinChemists is a brand that is all about intelligent skincare born with tradition, they have evolutionary and unconventional ideas that go beyond the ordinary skincare to combat and control skin ageing. The Advanced Carver Day Moisturiser is designed to smooth and protect your skin throughout the day whilst the Night Moisturiser is designed to repair and hydrate your skin at night. The both contain a combination of active ingredients including sustainable sourced caviar which provides daily protection and leaves your complexion healthy and radiant. I first fell in love with Weleda when I discovered Skin Food which is an amazing product that can be used all over your body, their products are made from natural ingredients which are great for the skin. Our of all of their Christmas gift sets the Luxury Three Drawer gift set is my favourite which comes packaged in this drawer box which looks great on a dressing table. Included are six body washes, body lotions and body oils in Citrus, Lavender, Pomegranate, Sea Buckthorn and Wild Rose which is a mixture of refreshing, relaxing and classic scents. I love that it has a variety of different scents as it means whoever received this gift can try out the different ones and the products are also lovely to use together to layer the scents. Believe it or not, this bag is part of the Baylis & Harding Sweet Mandarin & Grapefruit gift set which is gorgeous. It comes beautifully packaged in this black weekend bag which is textured and so lovely, then inside all of the products are wrapped in tissue paper which is such a sweet touch. All of the products included will help you relax, unwind and enjoy a lovely weekend away or even weekend at home. It includes bath creme, bath milk, shower gel, body wash, body butter and hand and nail cream so everything that you would need!Lyons Leaf are a 100% natural skincare brand and use their home-grown ingredients in their products which are made on a small farm in Somerset. The Hot Cloth Cleansing gift set contains a beauty balm, two muslin face clothes and a white cotton flannel and the Body & Face gift set it very similar however it contains a body butter as well and one less muslin cloth. Hot cloth cleaning is my favourite way to take off my makeup off in the evening and cleanse my skin, I just rub the beauty balm over my face and remove using warm water and a muslin cloth. I always find it removes all traces of makeup and leaves my skin feeling soft, it’s also great if you have sensitive skin. Both the Beauty Balm and Body Butters are super concentrated and contains lots of skin loving ingredients that nourish and hydrate.
Unwash is quite an unusual brand and they are the first professional co-washing system, they challenge the conventional shampoo then conditioning of your hair and provide a different approach that gently removes first and surface build-up whilst locking in moisture. This is the Unwash Try-Me Kit so is perfect as an introduction to the brand and contains their Anti-Residue Cleanse, Bio-Cleansing Conditioner and Hydrating Masque.Duckish is a natural skin care company where all of their products are handmade and contain organic ingredients when possible. The Duckish Starter Kit is perfect as you get to try out a few of their different products so would make a lovely gift to introduce someone to this brand. It contains a mixture of bath and body products including bath salts, two bath bombs, body butter, mini lotion stick and a lip balm. These products would also be perfect for a pamper evening and would help someone unwind and relax after a busy week.The Library of Fragrance are a fragrance brand which have a very unique twist, they literally will make anything into a fragrance no matter how odd or unusual. They originally set out to capture the smells that surround us every day and then expanded to include a wider range of scents. The three that I wanted to share with you are Gingerbread, Christmas in New York and Pixie Dust. You may think that Gingerbread is quite a strange scent to wear however it works so well, it’s very warming and brings back memories of Christmas time as my mum does even more baking at this time of year and the amazing scent fill up the house. Christmas in New York reminds me of going to Christmas markets and eating roast chestnuts, you can smell all the festive spices and makes me feel very festive when wearing it. The last one is Pixie Dust which is my favourite out of the three, I loved fairies when I was little so couldn’t resist this sweet scent. These winter shades of Annika nail polish are perfect for the festive period, the four shades that I wanted to share are Deep Velvet (burgundy with a shimmer finish), white swan (gloss finish),Beauty Queen (rich amethyst with gloss finish) and Romance which is a classic bright red (gloss finish). They are all great quality and I found them to be long lasting and don’t chip easily which is great as I get very disappointed with beautiful nail polishes that end up chipping the next day. They have 30 different shades all together so I’m sure you will easily find a shade that someone will love. I first tried Magnitone a few years ago and fell in love with their facial cleansing brush, they have now released their Precious Collection in two new colours which are Glittery Gold and Rose Quartz. This is the Rose Quartz shade and is absolutely beautiful and comes with a little bag to pop it in. It removes dead skin cells, makeup and impurities from pores, eliminates excess oil, tones the skin and improves the absorption of skincare products. It uses Vibra-Sonic technology which is a combination of pulsed vibrations and sonic oscillations to massage, tone and deep-cleanse your skin. This is also 100% so you want use it when in the bath or shower, personally I love to use mine when I’m in the bath as an extra little pamper and cleanse. If you know someone who wants to get more into a skincare routine or hasn’t tried out cleansing brushes before then this would be perfect.Lord Timepieces offer unique and luxurious watches in both timeless and elegant designs, from minimalistic classics to more bold styles. This is one of their more classic styles and is rose gold with a baby pink suede strap. You can treat someone to a little bit of luxury without the heavy price tag of other luxury watches, they also have lots of different colours so lots of choice. Also who does love rose gold and suede, it’s such a perfect combination. Another luxury gift idea is this Cranberry and Champagne Pearl Pendant from PearlsUK. Giving jewellery as a gift for Christmas can be very special and is such a lovely thing to receive, this pendant has pink freshwater nugget pearls and smaller champagne potato pearls which give a subtle yet sophisticated pop of colour. It comes with a sterling silver chain that could also be used with other pendants and is packed in a beautiful leatherette jewellery box. This is absolutely gorgeous an whoever is wearing it is bound to get lots of compliments, and now that the cold weather is here this would look lovely over the top of jumpers to add little something special to their outfit. I’m one of those people who love biscuits and chocolate designs on everything from homeware to accessories and know many others who are similar. This is the cutest Jammy Biscuit Coin Purse from PrezzyBox made of super soft leather. It’s presented in a lovely dust bag and would sweeten up your everyday life. Even though it has a jammy biscuit on the front it is still a chic style which has a little bit of quirkiness. The design is beautiful and who wouldn’t want one of the nations favourite biscuits captured perfectly on a purse, it’s incredible.Close Nine is one of my favourite brands for hair straighteners, I first discovered them over a year ago and have loved their products ever since. They have released The Touch hair straightener in a beautiful Christmas gift set that is beautifully designed and also includes a selection of hair hero essentials. The Touch iron is their most innovative and intuitive hair straightener, it has automatic heat up touch technology and the iron itself is buttonless. It eliminates hear up time by working from the very first stroke and has a range of temperature settings from low, to medium and high. The floating ceramic plates and mineral-coated which are proven to be kinder to hair which is so important as damaging your hair is the last thing you want to do when styling. Included along with the iron is their limited edition hear resistant bag, a paddle brush and two crocodile clips which I always use to part my hair whilst styling. It’s an incredible gift set and great for anyone who loves to style their hair and wants to reduce the amount of damage.
That was one heck of a post full of lots of different ideas for women, there’s something for everyone so hopefully it has given you some ideas and inspiration. I still have one more Christmas gift guide to go live so keep and eye out for that if you’re interested.
