Last Minute Gifts

Due to many delays and lost parcels, I have another gift guide for you, but this time it is a bit of a mix :) From hair tools and beauty gadgets, to earphones and fragrance. You can get most of the products mentioned in this post instore, but you can also order online today and pick a speedy delivery option.

First, we have the stunning new range by Nicky Clarke. How beautiful is the design on the hair tools? I am absolutely in love. The Diamond Shine Pro Salon Hair Straightener* (£56.59) and Diamond Shine Pro Salon Blow Hair Dryer* (£49.99) are currently on sale in Boots and Argos and they would make incredible gifts. I will be reviewing these in the New Year as well. Stunning design and salon quality!

If you forgot to buy a fragrance gift set and don't want to pay high-street prices, you can still order from Fragrance Direct and opt for next day delivery. There is plenty of scents to choose from and the prices are really good. The Giorgio Armani Si Gift Set* really caught my eye, as I am a big fan of Si EDP, but I would also recommend the Roberto Cavalli Set, Chloe and Marc Jacobs Daisy.

Foreo Luna* has been on my wishlist for ages, so imagine my excitement when it arrived in the post this week :) I already started using it and it is fantastic! I still love cleansing brushes, but this little baby is perfect for more sensitive skin an days when I have more breakouts. LUNA is ideal for gentle cleansing, it helps with absorption of skincare products and reduces the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles. It also looks absolutely gorgeous in pink!

The Bee Good Bee Pampered Gift Set* (£20.00, free delivery) is the cutest thing I have received in the post this week. I love Bee Good products and this set would be a great way to introduce someone to the brand, especially when  biscuits are involved :) The set comes with Honey, Borage & Echium Intensive Hand Repair (50ml), a Vanilla & Honey Lip Balm (10ml) and yummy bee and flower shaped biscuits. Such a nice touch.

 Balance Me Rose Otto Bath & Body Set* (£10.00, £7.50) is an absolute bargain and it comes with the Rose Otto Body Wash (100ml) and Rose Otto Body Cream (50ml). Perfect for those who love the delicate scent of roses and gentle formulas.

As promised, here is a closer look at some of the Britney Spears Hair Tools* for Lidl. The hair brushes are priced at £1.99 and the styling tools start at only £6.99. As you can see, the tools are actually quite sleek and neutral (I expected pink from Britney), so if you are on a tight budget, you might want to check out the range at your local Lidl.

The last item is totally random, but it seriously impressed me. The Pump Audio Earphones* (£99.00) are the best earphones I have ever tried and the sound and bass that comes out of them is amazing! If you know someone who listens to music on the go and really cares about the sound quality, these will be a perfect gift.  They also come in black.

That's it. No more gift guides this year :) Have you finished all your Christmas shopping?
