Christmas Gift Guide 2015: Gift Sets

I talked about fragrance gift sets on Wednesday (here), but today I have a selection of skincare, makeup, bodycare, haircare and more. From budget options, to luxury brands, there is something for everyone.

The ultimate gift for a skincare addict. Featuring two cult Liz Earle products: Cleanse & Polish and Instant Boost Skin Tonic, plus 2 pure muslin cloths, it is the perfect combination to help you achieve beautiful skin. I am a huge Liz Earle fan and this duo is something I always recommend for all skin types and every age. Incredible!

NYR is a lovely brand and their products smell very therapeutic. Handmade in Britain and packed in eco-friendly boxes, their gift sets would be perfect for those who love natural beauty. The Beauty Sleep Collection contains a full size Beauty Sleep Concentrate (it's incredible!), Beauty Sleep Bath Milk (100ml) and Beauty Sleep Body Butter (50g). These will keep your skin happy and help you drift off to sleep in no time.

This duo is more budget friendly, but it is great value for  money and comes with a bottle of Aromatic Foaming Bath (100ml) and a jar of Aromatic Body Butter (50g). The products are infused with a relaxing scent of organic lavender, geranium and marjoram essential oil and come in a lovely gift box.

This little set is an absolute bargain! Perfect for Soap & Glory addicts. The box contain 5 products: Sugar Crush Body Wash, Body Scrub, Body Buttercream, Hand Cream and a pink shower puff thingy. 

If you need some budget friendly stocking fillers or want to add a glamorous touch to your Christmas table, these would be ideal! The box contains 6 Christmas crackers with the entire collection of Soap & Glory body washes: 

CLEAN ON ME (rose and bergamot)
SUGAR CRUSH (smashed brown sugar and sweet lime)
RICH & FOAMOUS (almond and sweet vanilla)
FOAM CAL FRUITIGO (yuzu fruit and wild fig)
CLEAN GIRLS (freesia, cassis and vanilla) 
ORANGEASM (green orange and bergamot)

Each cracker comes with a hat and words of wisdom :)

Benefit never fail to impress in the gift set department, eh? This gorgeous tin contains 2 full size products and 2 generously sized minis, making it great value for money. You get: 

- full size They re real! Mascara in black
- full size Hoola bronzing powder 
- mini 7.5 ml The POREfessional
- mini Ultra plush lip gloss in Hoola

Perfect for a sunkissed bronzed goddess look.

How glam is this little set? I love the rose gold accents! It's all about the lips and it includes 2 lip glosses, a lip and cheek tint and a  stunning floral mirror. Definitely one for the girly girls.

Containing a 100ml Fabulous Tinted Tan Lotion, Trystal Minerals Self Tanning Bronzing Minerals (3g), Mini Tanning Mitt and Kabuki Brush, this set will give you the most natural-looking, healthy glow. The products are made with certified organic ingredients, so you don't have to worry about any nasties. That's what I call a safe tan!

I love TIGI styling products and this set is all you need for a perfect bouncy blow dry. You start with the Bed Head After Party Smoothing Cream (100ml) to smooth and prep the hair, follow with the Bed Head Headrush Shine Adrenalin (200ml) to add a gorgeous shine and separate the layers and finish off with the TIGI Bed Head Masterpiece Hairspray (340ml) for a great hold and even more shine. I will definitely be keeping this one for myself, shhhh! :)

The most expensive item in this gift guide, but it's such a cult product. Clarisonic brushes are the best on the market and this limited edition collaboration with the Keith Haring Foundation is extra special. The gift set contains the Clarisonic Mia 2 with a Keith Haring illustration and a water resistant illustrated bag with a zip shaped like a Clarisonic brush. 

 The vintage inspired floral case contains a 50ml pillow mist, 200ml shower cream, 200ml body lotion and a votive candle, all in a gorgeous floral Royal Bloom scent.

Not a gift set, but I though I will include it here, the Laura Ashley Body Butter* (£6.00). Great stocking filler and it comes in lovely packaging too. Available from Boots.


When it comes to Christmas, it's all about gift sets! Which one would be your top pick?
