It’s officially one month until Christmas! Yippee! Which means.. let the festive blog posts begin! I’m starting with a little gift guide designed to inspire you if you’re looking for gifts for a loved one that may be needing a bit of ‘me time’. Pamper gifts are always a popular choice with ladies of all ages; and candles, bath bombs and smellies are always welcome under my Christmas tree!
This adorable set of 6 luxuty bath melts comes in a pretty little pink cardboard egg box and would make a lovely gift for a loved one. They are decorated to look like little cupcakes and each set contains 3 bath souffles and 3 soothing sundaes. All are enriched with creamy cocoa butter to give super soft skin and each bath melt is fragranced with a different essential oil, including peony and hyacinth.
Rathbornes is the world’s oldest candle company which was founded in Ireland in 1488, and all of their luxury candles
are hand-crafted. This little travel candle burns for up to 20 hours and comes beautifully boxed and in a little embossed glass jar. This candle is White Pepper, Honeysuckle and Vertivert scented and is designed to provide calming and soothing relief from stress. The perfect gift for someone who needs some time to themselves to relax!
This Balance Me duo is a great little set that contains both a body wash and a lotion to cleanse and hydrate skin. The wash and lotion both have a light, zesty fragrance which comes from the citrus essential oils which calm and soothe any skin sensitivity. The ingredients also contains Shea Butter, organic Aloe Vera and Sweet Almond Oil to quench dry skin.
I absolutely love this Sanctuary Favourite Florals Tin set from Boots! It includes three luxury full size White Lily and Damask Rose products and is beautifully packaged in a tall storage tin decorated with pretty painted birds. The set includes the body lotion, body wash, and moisture bead scrub which are all fragranced with a soft, pretty and floral scent. I love the text on the top of the tin too!
Fragrance is always a top gift choice for Christmas, and my new favourite perfume is Sì by Georgio Armani
. Available in eau de toilette, eau de parfum, and also parfum intense; Sì has a timeless and classic scent. It is made up from a mix of Mandarin Oil, Roses de Mai, Blond Woods, Amber and Vanille to create a powerful strong fragrance.
This adorable little wash bag
is by one of my favourite designers; Disaster Designs and is available from Flamingo Gifts. It has a pretty illustrated tea cup print all over and coloured in lovely pastel shades. It also has lovely little details such as the teaspoon zip pull and the tiny mirror disguised as a tea bag which fits into the teacup pocket! How sweet!
This stylish little manicure set
is from the opulent bloom print collection from Ted Baker. It comes complete with rose gold coloured tools, including scissors, nail file, nail clippers and cuticle tool. This is all wrapped up in a handy zipped case made from faux leather with a coral lining. The outer of the case features a pretty floral design, and the words ‘A Duty to Beauty’ embossed in gold. Perfect for a girl on the go!
