December is almost here and I couldn’t wait any longer to share this exciting post with you. Me and my amazing friend and a photographer Catrine Haland have decided to shoot a Christmas Gift Guide for HER last week, well the truth is I have planned on creating this post for a while and figured that the Black Friday would be the best day to publish it so you guys are able to shop with a discount, if you like .
If you are like me and shopping obsessed then I’m sure that you have purchased a few Christmas pressies already. Isn’t it the most exciting time when we share gifts with our loved ones and I’m super excited for this year’s Christmas as I’m taking my sister away for a few days and it will be so lovely to relax for a little bit and spend some quality time together. Since this is a gift guide for Her, I picked a few bits that I’m sure every female out there would be excited to receive as a present whether it be a Christmas or not. It is a little beauty products heavy, however, this is a perfect time to stock up on your beauty and makeup essentials.
First of all guys is that you can never go wrong with Chanel. The Chanel Perfect Lumiere foundation is a God sent as it not only lasts the whole day, but it feels like a second skin. Whilst you are at it, why not add this beautiful Chanel Poudre Universelle skin finish powder perfect for mattifying the skin and helping foundation stay in place the whole day, it also optically conceals imperfections. To complete the gift Chanel Quadra Eye Shadow palette with beautiful smoky tones will make sure that your lady is beautiful and party-ready in no time. I also thought that adding 2 shades of Essie in A List in Chocolate Cakes would be a good idea as such dark tones are must have for the festive season.
Eyeshadow palettes make a perfect Christmas gift, not only because they offer so many options, but they are actually cheaper than buying eyeshadows separately and also look divine. My favorite 2 at the moment is this limited edition Lancôme eyeshadow palette and a slightly cheaper, but as an equally good alternative is The Balm Nude’tude nude eye palette. To make sure the eyes are really brought out just add a set of Make Up Forever Lash Show Eyelashes as an ultimate eye accessory to add length and volume to an every eye.
What is a Party season without an amazing perfume and jewelry? You can add sparkle to someone’s life with these gorgeous Swarovski stardust bracelets. My favorite perfume of the season is Yves Saint Laurent Opium Black with a base of gorgeous musk and floral notes with a mix of Black Coffee, White Florals and Vanilla makes you smell irresistible.
No present is complete without Chocolate and Champagne and an obvious choice here is the La Maison Du Chocolate Holiday Delicacies which is out of this world not only with the taste but also with their Christmas packaging and of course, Laurent Perrier. If you want to be extra nice, why not book a Champagne Afternoon Tea for 2 at the Carinthia Hotel in London, which will trust me to make anyone you gift this too overly happy and satisfied.
Last but not least are your loved one’s coffee table accessories as we all know how important it is to have props that are not only useful but also make an awesome Instagram shot (you can follow me HERE if you aren’t already). Queen of Instagram Garance Dore will show you all the lifestyle hacks that one needs to know in her book Love x Style x Life. This Wax Love Aura Candle is my latest discovery and is so amazing that I can’t recommend them highly enough. What is the end of the year without a perfect sparkly 2016 diary and Paperchase is the place to get your planners and organisers from.
I hope you enjoyed my Christmas Gift Guide for Her and please let me know if you have any questions about products.
