What beauty products do you like to receive as gifts?

I am pretty sure that many of you received an awkward beauty present in the past. I know I have... I think that beauty bloggers are extremely hard to buy for, unless you are always up to date with their makeup collection and current wishlist :) haha. Beauty gifts in general can be very tricky to pick and that's why Debenhams created a survey to find out the preferred beauty products people love as presents. The findings of the survey will be promoted on Debenhams social media platforms as well as blog and online publications and I can't wait to find out the outcome. Today I would like to show you my personal top three beauty gifts and... ask you what beauty products you love receiving as gifts yourself?


Don't worry... I am not suggesting Flower By Kenzo* as a perfect gift for everyone, but... buying a bottle of someone's favourite fragrance is always a good idea. If you are close to the person you are buying for, you will definitely  know what their signature scent is. My husband buys me a bottle of Flower By Kenzo every year, because I absolutely adore it and it reminds him of our first dates etc :) I buy him 212 by Carolina Herrera every year as well and he is always very grateful :) 


You can't go wrong with a cute pot of lip balm, like the Korres Jasmine Lip Butter*. Who doesn't use, or love lip balms? I always add them as gift extras for birthdays, Christmas and other occasions and I love receiving them too. If you want something more luxurious, go for Chanel or Dior :) 


This little gadget is a must have and I would be happy to receive another one as a gift. It's the incredible Travalo* - a refillable travel perfume atomizer spray bottle that refills in seconds with a unique repeat pump action. You can fill it with your favourite fragrance and keep it in your handbag. It comes in a variety of colours and makes a lovely gift. I really want a gold one :)

What beauty products do you like to receive as gifts? I think that signature perfumes, lip balms and simple beauty gadgets like Travalo are perfect. Makeup and skincare can be tricky in my opinion, unless you know a lot about someone's makeup taste, skin type etc.
