This year for me everyone seems to be getting harder to buy for! So I’ve been scouring the stores on the High Street and Online and I’ve come up with my 2015 Christmas Gift Guide!
Christmas Gift Guide for Her
Lush is a great place to start when it come to girls and Christmas. This season is all about Snow Fairy, Lush have put together the ultimate Gift Box – Snow Fairy’s Castle which includes Snow Fairy Shower Gel, Magic Wand, So White Bath Bomb and Fairy Dust Dusting Powder. Snow Fairy’s Castle, £21.95

Perfect stocking filler or Secret Santa gift, this Votive Yankee Candle Set from ASDA only £6 and all the gorgeous scents!
What Christmas gift guide would be complete without ‘The Palette’ in beauty and for me this year is the Gwen Stefani X Urban Decay Palette, full of the most gorgeous colours – any makeup enthusiast will LOVE it (Mum if you’re reading this, can I have one?). Slightly more pricey, but for £40 it would be the ideal gift for your sister, mum, girlfriend or makeup obsessed bestie! Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Palette, £40
When it comes to fragrance there is so much choice! Gift sets are always a winner this time of year! The Perfume Shop and other drug stores like Boots always have fab deals on gift sets this time of year – even on high end brands!
Here are a few of my favourites!

Not On The High Street has some really quirky and cute home wear! This china mug with gold letter and handle is a great gift! Spotty China Letter Mug, £13.95
Us ladies are renowned for losing all manner of things in our bags, so why not help a sister out and get us one of these key rings – IT’S SO FLUFFY! A perfect stocking filler! Fluffy Ball Key Ring, £5
Liquid lipsticks have taken the beauty blogging world by storm, my favourites being the Gerard Cosmetics Liquid Lipsticks, but here is a much more affordable alternative from NYX with 12 colours to choose from at £6.50, there will be a shade for everyone! NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick, £6.50
