Holiday Gift Guide: for Her!

The holidays are coming around so quick and Christmas will be here before we know it.  So I thought I'd go a gift guide on ideas of what to buy for mum, sisters, girlfriends etc to help with those of you that are stuck on what to buy and don't want to leave it to the last minute.


This is an awesome product.  I don't have one myself but I am seriously looking into getting one.  I've heard so many great reviews on this.  It's basically an electronic face brush that vibrates and pulses against your skin removing all the dirt and dead skin cells.  The one I've attached is the Mia one at £90 but they have just brought out the Mia 2 which retails at roughly £112.  However, if you didn't want to spend that much and you wasn't sure if you'd like it Olay do a really good version at £30

Urban Decay Naked Palettes 

I absolutely love these eyeshadow palettes.  I have the first one and really want to get the second and basics.  They have the most gorgeous array of neutral tones with a mixture of matte and shimmer.  They are so beautiful and super pigmented.  Perfect for creating a smokey eye.  If you know someone who is a lover of neutral eyeshadows like I am then this is definitely the palette for them.  




Boots

Every girl loves a pair of shoes but some girls really really love their shoes and I'd say I'm one of those girls.  During the winter months I love rocking a good pair of boots.  One of my favourite places to shop for shoes is Kurt Geiger and they emailed me yesterday to say they are doing 25% off everything until Sunday so I thought I'd have a cheeky look on their website. 

http://www.kurtgeiger.com/women/shoes/boots/sadie-black-leather-41-carvela-kurt-geiger-shoe.html These are really cool ankle boots with a chunky heel.  I think they'd look cute with a knitted jumper dress and tights or with skinny jeans and a leather jacket.

http://www.kurtgeiger.com/women/shoes/boots/william-black-leather-fabric-41-kg-kurt-geiger-shoe.html These are new in and I reckon they'll be quite a sell out.  Again I think they would look fab with a dress or jeans and will definitely keep her warm and stylish throughout winter.  Who doesn't want that!

Scarves

A scarf is a good present to buy, especially if it's for someone you don't know that well, maybe a secret santa present or someone at work.  I actually bought a scarf for my boss last year and she loved it.  Zara have got some fab scarves in at the minute in an array of colours and patterns.  They are good quality chunky scarves too so guaranteed to keep her warm.  http://www.zara.com/uk/en/woman/accessories/scarves-c271013.html

Nail Polish Set

Another gift idea I came up with was a nail polish set.  I think this is a good gift for girly girls who love having pretty nails.  My favourite nail polish brand is Nails Inc.  I think it's so good because it lasts up to a week without any chipping which is good for a busy girl like me who doesn't have time to keep touching up my nail polish.  This is my favourite set

Hair Tools

I think hair tools are a great gift for a girl because I think it's something that not many girls will go out and buy themselves because they don't always feel like they need it.  But oh honey, you do.  My favourite hair tool brand is Remington.  I have the conical wand, straighteners and pro curler by them and I love every product.  They heat up super fast and give a great finish.  Check them out!

Camera

If you were looking for a more expensive gift maybe for your girlfriend then I think a camera would make a great present.  You can get some great deals on digital cameras at the moment and I think my favourite brand would have to be Samsung.  I particularly like this one 

http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/cameras/digital-cameras/compact-digital-cameras/samsung-dv151f-advanced-compact-digital-camera-purple-21334505-pdt.html?gclid=CKatv8rQh7sCFTHLtAodQ0UALQ&srcid=198&cmpid=ppc~gg~~~Exact&mctag=gg_goog_7904&s_kwcid=AL!3391!3!30417239244!!!g!60594568435!&ef_id=lp9PEFDS@CIAAM59:20131128135320:s 

which is purple although I think it comes in other colours but hey I like the purple!  It also has 16.2 megapixels, 5x optical zoom and films in HD.  It also has a screen on the front so you can take cheeky selfies without cutting your head off which I thought was rather cool!

Perfume

Perfume always goes down well as a gift and I know is rather pradictable but I had to include it.  It's best to know what sort of perfume she enjoys to wear rather than just guessing as women have different tastes and there's a lot of perfume on the shelves out there.  One that I have actually asked for Christmas myself this year is Marc Jacobs Dot

I have Marc Jacobs Daisy already and it's one of my faves.  My ex housemate got this for Christmas last year and I fell in love but I think like hair tools, perfume is another thing that girls don't always buy for themselves.

Make-Up Brushes

Make-up brushes make excellent gifts especially for girls who enjoy their make-up.  I think a nice brush set would be a good present to receive and Real Techniques do a few of them.  I think a good one to buy for someone who is just starting out with make-up or maybe doesn't have many brushes is the core collection 

http://www.hqhair.com/real-techniques-core-collection-kit-face/10644478.html?utm_source=googleprod&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=gp_cosmetics&affil=thggpsad&switchcurrency=GBP&gclid=CPHgyYbSh7sCFckSwwodvRIA_g 

this includes a foundation brush, contour brush, small detailing brush and buffing brush.  So all the basic ideal brushes.  I actually have this collection and use the brushes every day.  They are so worth it.

So those are all the gift ideas I came up with.  Hope you found this useful!
