Christmas Gift Guide: Gift Sets + Giveaway

Gift sets are a go-to option for almost everyone when it comes to Christmas presents. Longs you know what kind of product or brand the person likes, you will definitely get it right. I have a lovely little selection to show you today and I hope it gives you some inspiration. It is also time for my last Christmas Giveaway :)


Sigma Girl Colour Pop Makeup Brush Set*(£24.95) would make a gorgeous gift for anyone who loves makeup. Inside the cute little polka dot travel tin you get three brushes with hot pink handles, including the E25 eye shadow blending brush, E55 eye shading brush and F40 contour brush. The quality of Sigma brushes is outstanding and you can buy them from www.beautychamber.co.uk.

Benefit offer some of the most beautiful Christmas gift sets each year, but the little kits from their regular range are fab too. My favourite is the Benefit Go Tropicoral Lip & Cheek Kit Gift Set (£25.50). I also love the look of the new Sweet Tintations Gift Set (£17.55).

I feel like Lord & Berry products are very underrated and deserve more attention! If you know someone who loves a bold lip, treat them to the Lord & Berry Lip Library Duo* (£20.00) It includes two lip crayons in shades Scarlet and Diva, both nicely pigmented, with a silky texture and a moisturising feel. 

The bareMinerals Kissing Booth Lipgloss Collection* (£22.50) will be the ultimate gift for any lipgloss addict. The set includes six of the bareMinerals Mini Marvelous Moxie Lipglosses in gorgeous peach, pink and plum colours. The set contains the following shades: Big Tease, Lucky Lady, Sweet Kisser, Major Flirt, Thrill Seeker and Jezebel.

I adore OPI and their little minis are just perfect! After all, it's is quite hard to use up a full size nail polish. This set contains four 3.75ml bottles: 'Red Fingers & Mistletoes', 'What's Your Point-Settia?', 'I Carol About You' and 'Kiss Me-or Elf!'. I am in love with the shimmery coppery red shade.

The Dazzling Nails Nail Art Kit* (£15.00,£12.00 ) contains everything you need to start your adventure with nail art: three bottles of nail polish (Black Magic, Gold Queen and Milk ChocoLatte), a Dotting Tool, a Nail Art Brush, 2 Nail Art Sponges and 10 Swarovski crystals  for added sparkle. You also get a How-To Guide to help you create some easy, but impressive designs. Keep your eyes peeled for a tutorial :)

If you want to impress a fake tan lover, the He-Shi Luxury Gift Set* (£18.00) might do the trick. It comes in a beautiful metallic gold snake effect bag and contains a 150ml bottle of He-Shi Express Liquid Tan and a tanning mitt. You have to try this stuff - it is AMAZING!

I featured the Nuxe Oil Enchanting Fragrance Set (£8.00) last year, but it is such a good deal, that I had to mention it again :) It includes the Nuxe SPA candle, a 10ml Huile Prodigieuse Oil and a 10ml Huile Prodigieuse OR. Such a bargain!

And here is one for organic beauty enthusiasts - the Nourish Argan Beauty Collection* (£25.00). This set comes with a 5ml bottle of Nourish Argan Skin Rescue, a 15 bottle of Nourish Golden Glow Illuminating Face Shimmer and a 15ml pot of Nourish Argan Skin Renew.  The packaging is gorgeous as well and doesn't really require wrapping, but you might want to add a gold bow to make it even prettier.

Another lovely natural option is the Conscious Skincare Indulgent Organic Mini Spa Set* (£19.99). I adore Conscious Skincare and I would be delighted to find this under the tree. The contents include: a 50ml body polish, 50ml body wash, 50ml bath soak, 50ml body butter, 50ml body lotion and 50ml orange and frangipani body oil.With a mixture of Grapefruit, Lemon, Cedarwood, Sweet Orange and Frangipani these smell absolutely divine! The cotton bag is handmade by ladies in India who were formerly trafficked into the sex industry and by buying this set, you will help them regain freedom, dignity and hope.  

If you know a skincare addict, you have to introduce them to Pure Gold Collagen* (£35.99) - a liquid food supplement with collagen, borage oil, hyaluronic acid, N-acetylglucosamine, piper nigrum, vitamins, and minerals. One bottle a day helps to nourish your skin from within and boosts natural collagen, elastin and hydration levels to prevent wrinkles, dryness and loss of firmness. I just finished my pack of 10 and I can already see a difference. 

The La Roche Posay Effaclar Anti-Blemish System* (£32.50) would be a perfect gift for those who struggle with breakouts. It works for almost everyone (unless your issue is hormonal) and the toner became a staple in my everyday routine. 

Beauty boxes are also a great gift idea, especially when you know exactly what you are getting inside. The Latest In Beauty Party Prep Box* (£24.95, free p&p) is full to the brim with amazing goodies to help you prep for Christmas parties this season. From an incredible Orange & Clove candle to a full size detoxifying face mask, dry shampoo and nail polish. Great value for money and a real time saver, as all the items come in a lovely gift box!

I mentioned this box in my hair care gift guide, but it also counts as a fab gift set. Feelunique currently have four boxes to choose from, including the Hair Heroes Box*. Again, great value for money and no need for wrapping :)

If you are looking into treating someone to an actual subscription service instead of a one-off box, My Little Box* is the one I would recommend. They launched in UK this year and they are simply incredible! The subscription costs £11.00 per month +P&P and each box is absolutely beautiful. The perfect gift for a girly girl who loves beauty and cute, quirky things :)

And for a fitness fanatic who loves looking after their body inside and out, we have the Mio Strong Is The New Skinny Set*( £26.50). Free from parabens, petrolatum, synthetic fragrance, colourants and other nasties, this trio will keep your skin smooth, soft and glowing. The set comes with a 30ml Mio The Activist Firming Active Body Oil, a 50ml Double Buff Dual Action Enzyme Exfoliator and a 50ml Mio Future Proof Firming Active Body Butter. Perfect for travelling or when you want to try a new brand without committing to full size products. I love the name of the set as well, as I agree with it 100%.


The last item in my gift guide is the ESPA Introductory Collection (£16.50). This four piece collection includes ESPA Hydrating Cleansing Milk, Refining Skin Polish, 24-Hour Replenishing Moisturiser and 24-Hour Replenishing Eye Moisturiser. 


In today's gift guide, I am giving away the ESPA Introductory Collection Set. You can enter the giveaway via Rafflecopter below:
