The festive adverts are on TV and the shops are full of pressies which can only mean one thing.. it’s time for my annual Christmas Gift Guide! This year I will be showcasing some of my favourite Christmas gift ideas ‘For Her’ which I hope will give you a little inspiration when present shopping for your loved ones. Or perhaps you’ll even find something to add to your own wish list! This gift guide includes everything from beauty indulgences to cosy loungewear and boozy gifts. So if you’re looking for unique Christmas gift ideas and inspiration then read on!
SENSSE Silicone Facial Cleansing Brush, £39.99
My favourite new beauty gadget is the SENSSE Silicone Facial Cleansing Brush, which just happens to come in my favourite shade of pretty pastel pink! The brush is the latest addition to my skincare routine which combines thorough cleansing and anti-ageing in one device.
The soft silicone bristles are gentle on the skin and work together with a cleanser to draw out any dirt and impurities. It’s really easy to use; simply apply a cleanser to moistened skin, glide the brush over forehead, cheeks, nose and chin for 15 seconds on each area, then rinse and dry your face. It’s smart too; the pulsation pauses every 15 seconds to remind you to move onto a new area. Give the gift of glowing skin this Christmas!
Bomb Cosmetics 12 Days Of Christmas Advent Calendar, £24.99
Treat your loved one to a dozen days of bath bombs with the Bomb Cosmetics Christmas Advent Calendar! It contains 12 full sized fizzy festive favourites to get you in the Christmas spirit! Plus, all of Bomb Cosmetics products are beautifully crafted by hand and never tested on animals.
Just drop a Bath Blaster in to a tub of warm water and watch as it fizzes and releases its perfume and essential oils so that you can enjoy a fragrant, relaxing bath. I just love the eye catching packaging and all of the cute handmade decorations on the bath bombs including candy canes, snowmen, Christmas trees and, of course, Santa!

Bedroom Athletics Loungewear – Harper Sweatshirt £30, Ella Pyjama Bottoms £25, Kate Harris Tweed Slippers £55.
Cost pyjamas and slippers are always a winner with me.. what more could a girl want?! These cute checked slippers from Bedroom Athletics are made from warm Harris Tweed and lined with soft luxurious Australian sheepskin. The natural properties help keep your feet warm in winter and cool in summer- the perfect slipper for year-round comfort! They’re very durable and long-lasting too, and come in various different colourways so you can pick their favourite colour! They even arrive presented in a branded box so they’re ready to wrap up and gift.
Bedroom Athletics also do a range of loungewear and sleepwear too, and I love this mix and match super cosy set! The Ella pyjama bottoms are made from a soft winter weight cotton and have two side pockets, a back pocket, and an elasticated tie up waist so you can adjust the fit to suit. Warm, cosy, and practical! The Harper crew neck sweat top would go perfectly with the bottoms but could also be worn as a casual top outdoors. I can just picture getting all snuggled up in this comfy set and having a lazy day!
Soap & Glory Goodies
Soap & Glory has been my favourite bodycare brand since I received some of their goodies for Christmas from my sister back in 2006! Their unique, fun and fearless brand has proved hugely popular over the years and they now have a massive and deliciously scented range of products including cosmetics and gift sets. I can guarantee that anyone with Soap and Glory under the Christmas tree this year will be very happy!
Their gift sets are available in Boots and are part of the famous 3 for 2 offer. The sets so reasonably priced; the Naughty But Spice Duo Gift Set includes a mini body wash and body butter and is only £5 which would make an ideal stocking filler. The Glitz The Girl Gift Set is only £8 an includes three make up minis: a lip gloss, kohl eyeliner and gold face glitter.
I love Soap and Glory cosmetics and the Triple Glammy Gift Set includes mini versions of my fav mascara, a lip gloss, and a little eyeshadow palette with six nude shades. The gift sets are a great way to try out S&G products! The Brow Fabulous set is also £16 and includes everything you need for perfect brows, with a crayon, gel brush, a highlighting pencil and tweezers.
Personalised Rhubarb Gin, £31.99
This bottle of gin liqueur is extra special as the label can be personalised with any name and message! It would make the perfect gift for those that love a G&T, but this gin has a twist! Made in the heart of Scotland, this personalised rhubarb gin liqueur from the Edinburgh Gin Distillery is infused with tangy spring crop rhubarb, warming oriental ginger and zesty lemon.
The delicate taste balances sweetness, sharpness and spice with a warm fruity finish. The liqueur would be great in a variety of wintry, festive cocktails, with tonic, soda or lemonade, with Champagne or just over ice.
