OMG it’s Christmas this week! No matter how well organised I think I am or how many tabs my Christmas spreadsheet has, I always seem to get caught off guard and usually in the week leading up to Christmas. Side note: Please tell me I’m not the only person who makes a spreadsheet to keep track of cards, gifts, visits and parties?! While I love buying gifts at Christmas, they’re also my downfall. My gifts tend to be well thought out, I umm and ahh over them for a couple of weeks (hence the spreadsheet!) and eventually settle on a gift which comes with an explanation or some meaning. That’s all well and good…if you don’t forget someone! If you’re also a forgetful one, bookmark this post as you’ll need it! I’ve rounded up my five failsafe gift ideas which pretty much everyone would be stoked to receive.
- Christian Louboutin Miss Loubi lip colour - £65
Every woman loves Christian Louboutin and there’s nothing more iconic than Louboutin red. Perhaps the most luxe lip colour in the world, this special Miss Loubi is presented in a metal bullet case with gold ribbon and beautifully boxed. A real treat for someone special.
- Pretty Iconic by Sali Hughes - £26
Sali Hughes is one of the world’s leading beauty influencers and her highly anticipated book is an essential for anyone into beauty. Full to the brim with knowledge about beauty products, routines and influential people like Charlotte Tilbury, this book is a total beauty bible.
- Beats by Dre Pill+ portable speaker - £189.99
It’s no secret that my Beats by Dre headphones are an essential part of my life. As a music lover, there’s simply no better way to hear music. The Pill+ brings the technology of the headphones to a Bluetooth speaker with 12-hour battery life, perfect for any music lover.
- Tom Dixon candle gift set - £80
I’m obsessed with anything Tom Dixon, from his home accessories to his restaurants. His clean, industrial aesthetic translates so well. I have his diffuser at home so I can vouch for his home fragrances. This set of three candles is generic enough to appeal to the masses but unique enough to be a treasured gift.
- Charlotte Tilbury mini brush set - £45
Make up can be tricky to buy but brushes are a failsafe gift choice. I tend to put off investing in new brushes til I really need them, so I’m always grateful for my aunts who tend to buy me brush sets. This set contains powder, blender, smudger and precision brushes in a gorgeous art-deco style case.
