Christmas means one thing- secret Santa’s! Whether its girl friends at work or your squad, my pick of gift ideas will help you choose the perfect gift for her- bestie/mum/sister/colleague etc. if you’re looking for an extra special stocking filler too, these gifts could work. Or just grab them for yourself. Price range is varied so there is something for everyone and these are easily accessible. These are not your average secret santa gifts btw, these are M&S secret Santa gifts ( you get the joke if you ever seen a M&S food ad lol)
How cute is this brush set?! Limited edition colourway and metallic green handles make these mini brushes the perfect tools for a Christmas getaway or touch-ups on the go! I remember seeing these at the Boots Christmas Press launch and I immediately fell in love with that glittery pouch. Totally insta worthy! You get 4 min brushes- foundation, powder, angled eye liner and eyeshadow and the glitter pouch. The bristles are so soft and so far I haven’t had any issues with shedding with them. It’s a no brainer!
If she’s a makeup lover, she’s probably heard of ABH and their liquid sticks. Great news, ABH has a UK and it has all the fab products over in the US, including this limited edition mini liquid lipstick set! Featuring the sell-out shade Dazed and two limited edition colours. A gift I am picking up for myself and something I know my girl Ghis will love!
Every girl knows Becca is one of the go to brands for a popping highlight. Every girl also knows Becca highlighters aint cheap, they are worth it but it’s not cheap! So I recently discovered their glow kits which feature some of their popular shimmering skin perfectors in mini sizes! I picked up the Lit From Within which features the Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal and the Backlight Priming Filter. Opal is SO pretty and I love it as much as Topaz! These are perfect to introduce them to Becca and budget friendly. They are mini sizes that they will last you a long time!
All kits are priced at £20 and include-
Rose Gold Glow on the Go– Rose Gold Shimmering Skin Perfector in pressed and liquid form
Jet, Set Glow. Pre, & Prime Kit– First Light Priming Filter, Backlight Priming Filter and Under eye corrector
Blush & Glow– Opal Shimmering Skin Perfector & Flowerchild blush
They say Smashbox have some of the best primers and while I am yet o test that out, the reviews are abundant on YT! This kit (which will be on my wish list!) is the perfect try it kit ft some of their popular primers! She will love it and will love you for it!
Glam glow masks are some of the best face masks in the market period! At £42 a pop they are pricey that’s why I love buying their giftsets! You are getting one full size plus 3 travel sizes for the price of one! They’re travel sizes actually last a while too, I still have my Supermud travel mask from a Youth Mud set I got LAST year and trust me I have used it more than 5 times! It’s worth it! (Wish list updated- this gift set I am getting, I was actually looking forward to this!)
Estee Lauder screams luxury so when they have trial sizes of their products for only £24 you don’t walk you run to get them before they sell out! Perfect for travel and perfect for testing out before investing in a full size! They have 2 more gift sets priced at £24 with slight variations so check and add to cart, now!
One of the best-selling skincare collection from the BodyShop, the Vitamin E collection is loved by many! It provides hydration and has a pleasant scent AND it’s suitable for most skintype! This 3 piece set wroth £28 is beautifully presented in a pink gift box and perfect for introducing someone to skincare! I think the only thing missing is the Vitamin E face mist but throw that in their stocking!
That’s all folks! I hope you found some inspiration from my Secret Santa gift guide! I only picked out gifts I ‘believed’ in lol- in other words once I would happily purchase for myself for friends! I am working on another gift guide featuring Black British Brands so please stay tuned for that!
Can you believe Christmas 2017 is almost here?!
