I think today might be a bit of a long one guys so grab a cuppa and sit down with your pen and paper at the ready - It's time for my Christmas Gift Guides again! Today's is the biggest I've ever done and it's all about the females in your life. I've got gifts here for Mum's, Sister's, Aunties and your bestest of friends so I'm going to just jump straight in and get started!
London Retro Keaton Sunglasses* - £55, Sunglasses Shop.
I absolutely love these Sunglasses, so much so that I'm being a bit naughty and not actually giving these to anyone but myself this Christmas. I love the shape of these and how they're a pretty good dupe for the Dior sunglasses at such a fraction of the price.
Get 15% off this gorgeous watch and anything else on the website with my code 'BekylouDW' until January 15th 2016! As you may have seen on my blog recently I'm a massive fan of Daniel Wellington and this watch is just perfect for a little lady in your life. If my sister was a lover of watches then this one would definitely be for her!
Glamoriser Free-Styler Cordless Straighteners* - £69.99, Boots - currently on offer for £49.99!
I honestly think these are the best invention since sliced bread. The handiest pair of little straighteners ever; you charge them up and can take them anywhere... I've even got a friend who uses hers on the train on the way to work, such a good idea! These are currently on offer at Boots and have £20 off so grab them before it's gone.
I featured these three Superdry products in my recent Winter Warmers post . I absolutely love Superdry for winter accessories and these are no exception. This scarf is super long and is great for anyone who loves to stay snug and warm during the cold winter months. Along with the matching Beanie and mittens I think they are a great gift either together as a bundle or individually and would make anyone you give them to smile ear from ear this Christmas. I'm going to being gifting this scarf to my Mum as she's a massive advocate of wrapping up warm when she's out and about and I think she'll absolutely love it! Superdry have lots more winter accessories for sale so make sure you pop online or in store to see what else they have to offer, you won't be disappointed!
The Perfect Party Glow set by Vita Liberata is the perfect set for the Christmas Party Season it has everything you need for a party ready glow including Medium or Dark Lotion Tan, a small tanning mitt (absent from this photo as it's a bit dirty from use oops), a mini Trystal Self Tanning Bronzer powder and the softest Kabuki brush you will ever feel. This kit is great for an all over glow (face and body) and will be perfect for the tanning lovers of your family / friends.
The perfect gift for all of the Mummy's out there. This is such a great relaxation gift and perfect for a warm bubble bath kind of pamper evening. The fragrance of these products are so nice to get you in a calming mood! Neal's Yard Remedies have a really good selection of gift sets this year that have a selection of different scents for every lady that loves different things - which I would know as my mum is SO picky with what she likes and does't like!
I love gifts like these that you can hang on the tree, as much as Jordan doesn't allow it in our house (boo), I think they're perfect for little Christmas Eve gifts (is that really a thing?) that are easy to open and just a little something before the big day. No7 are a brand I've loved for quite some time now and with this gift you get a gorgeous Christmas Party Ready nail varnish, they have so many other great gifts available too so make sure you get over to Boots and take advantage of all of the gifts in the 3for2 range!
Another gift-in-a-bauble and this time it's socks and who doesn't need socks at Christmas? These cute little things are available in a range of different colours and characters and I just think they're perfect for stocking fillers. Next are so good for cute gifts like this and their stocking filler selection this year is just great! I love the lettered candles too, so perfect for a personalised easy gift.
Benefit Stocking Filliers -£15, Boots
I actually think you can only get this in store (I haven't had much luck finding it online) but this is one of my favourite stocking filler gifts yet. This year Boots and Benefit have created a mini stocking and beauty mini's all for £15. You can pick any 4 of your favourite Benefit mini's to pop into this super cute pink stocking. It's such a great idea for introducing friends into the world of Benefit and I'm definitely going to be popping back in to get some more of these soon. They're actually really decent size mini's too!
Seventeen have got a lot of great gift sets out at the moment and this eye crayon gift set is one of my favourites. It's perfect for all kinds of eye looks and the crayons are chunky so give a great colour pay off with a smokey look that's ready for any Christmas / New Years Eve party! Seventeen is a brand that I think can get overlooked sometimes but with their Christmas Gift sets this year I think you'd be silly to ignore them as a strong contender for present ideas. Check them out at Boots on 3for2!
New CID Cosmetics are a brand that I've recently featured on my blog; I love their products and that doesn't stop at their Christmas gift sets! They have some really great value sets available on their website ready for Christmas and their Lip gloss collection is definitely one of them. I love these because not only do they have a super soft applicator, they also have a mirror and light on the tube, such a great idea!
You may have seen me write about Clarins (quite a lot) before. They're one of my favourite brands and such a go-to when I'm recommending people to new makeup. If you want a full review of these two products then take a peek at my Clarins Garden Escape Spring Collection post for more details, but for now let me just tell you that a gift from Clarins is always going to be something that any girl will appreciate. There's something for everyone when it comes to Clarins!
I was recently invited down to London for the launch party of this amazing collection and I have to say it's one of the best that Sleek have come out with so far! I love the collection so much and think it would be a great gift for any budding makeup artist or even a sister that just loves to play around with her makeup. Sleek produce really amazing pigmentation in their products and this collection is no exception. You can find Sleek Makeup in
A personal favourite of mine and perfect for anyone seriously obsessed with makeup and beauty, the latest addition to the Urban Decay Naked palette family is the best by far and a great Christmas gift. A little more on the pricey side compared to some of the other beauty products in this gift guide, but an absolute must if you're trying to think of a present for someone who has everything beauty wise... Although, you should probably check they don't already have one of these first!
I was given this for my birthday last year and haven't stopped using it since. I love all Marc Jacobs scenes (especially his new one) but this one has been a favourite of mine for quite some time now. I've always thought a fragrance is a the perfect gift for a birthday or Christmas and Marc Jacobs is one of those signature names that everyone can count on being a great scent. I think Daisy Dream is one that's just right for any girl in her teens or twenties!
This one is one for the Mum's out there. This perfume has some really gorgeous musky tones to it along with vanilla and patchouli which really stand out on this Passion edition of the iconic Angel perfume. I think this scent is a bit too grown up for me so this one will be going to my Mum for Christmas this year which i know she'll be absolutely thrilled about. You definitely can't go wrong with a fragrance from Thierry Mugler!
Candles are always something I like to give as Christmas presents, they're a great gift for anyone as long as you manage to get a scent that that person will like. I'm a huge fan of scented candles and a couple of perfect mini candles I think would be great for presents come from Amara this year. The Amara Mini Orange and Clove scented candle could possibly be in the running for my new favourite candle, it's got such an amazing zesty scent to it and smells absolutely incredible when it burns. It's such a classy looking candle too, don't you think? My second choice from Amara is this Mini Maison candle from Voluspa in Visions of Sugarplum, a sickly sweet scent that would be perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth!
Every stocking needs some indulgent bath/shower products (as my Nan loves to exercise each year by giving me shampoo, conditioner and toothpaste, all of the basics)! For some cheap and cheerful, yet very luxurious stocking fillers this year my favourites have to be from Cafe De Bain, available in Superdrug. These products smell SO good and lather so well under water. The two that I was kindly sent for this post are in Coconut Macaroon and make me smell so tasty all day after I've had my bath or shower! Honestly, I think these products are under-priced for how good they are, so I'd definitely snap them up before everyone else realises how nice they are too!
Sweet Ease Waxing Kits* - £3.99/£4.99, Superdrug
Not the most conventional of all gifts, the Sweet Ease Waxing kits that are now available in Superdrug are such an easy gift for teen girls this Christmas. I really love the easy packets that these come in and think that they're such a good idea for girls that love to wax at home. Each pack comes with a little demo/how-to card telling you exactly how to use each type of strips and make it fool proof to de-hair at home (if you're not a massive baby like me that is). I think these are a sweet idea for someone you know well.
Whoa.. that was long! Congratulations if you've made it this far and have read to the end. I've been incredibly lucky this year to have had the majority of this post gifted to me for this gift guide and just want to say a massive thank you to everyone that has sent something over. I can't wait to get out Christmas shopping (yes I've left it quite late this year) and pick up a couple things for my friends and family that I know they'll love. I really hope that this gift guide has been helpful to you all and given you at least one idea for gifts this year! Don't forget to come back on Thursday for my (much shorter) Christmas Gift guide for Him!
