Christmas is coming, lads. The biggest shopping season of the year? Also happening right now. There are gift sets and goodies galore, so I’m editing everything down into the best of the best. 2018 has, for me, been the year of natural beauty and so this is A Big Gift Guide – Natural Beauty.
Natural beauty no longer means comprising on presentation
Willow & Honey Candle Set
I mean, everyone loves candles! For me in winter, I have one burning pretty much whenever I’m at home so new additions are always welcome. This cute little set from Willow & Honey has enough scents to please everyone – they’re mostly rich and a little bit gourmand so perfect for cosying up with on a cold Christmas evening. Here!
Boucleme Gift Sets
The perfect stocking filler for anyone with an interest in natural beauty. Especially perfect for any curly-haired recipients! The packaging is beautiful, the products are amazing and they have some cute little pre-packaged gift sets. Here!
Jurlique Christmas Gifting
If you can spot the beautiful wrapping, I have to say that I did not wrap this myself… the lovely ladies at Jurlique have to take all credit. The brand has some of the loveliest sets for gifting this year; beautifully presented and with some of my all-time favourite products. The Sweet Peony & Tangerine Hydrating Mist is a new go-to, and their rose anything is always a must. Here!
A classic stocking filler… the ever-reliable Burt’s Bees lip balms, coming in a little tin. One for the bag, one for the dressing table and one for the coat pocket, yes? Here! You can never have enough lipsticks, and the Jane Iredale kiss & tell set comes with a few shades to play around with. Gorgeous colours. Here! If you want a gift that promises to be low-waste, Kjaer Weiss is the way to go. The packaging is refillable, and incredibly chic. Here! Lastly we have the The English Mineral Makeup Company Fairy Godmother powder. Great for sensitive skins, and it comes beautifully packaged with a teeny tiny little pumpkin carriage, too. Too cute! Here.
REN Christmas Gift Set
Every year, REN manages to produce some incredibly beautiful packaging and… this year is no different. One of the best brands out there (big guide here should you want to read more!), this year they have got a whole host of gorgeous presents that you don’t even need to wrap. I love their pillow spray set and also their Love rose body duo is destined to brighten up a dreary January morning. Here!
Konjac Sponge Company Christmas Sponges
How cute are these?! Aw, these are just the sweetest little stocking filler for any beauty obsessive in your life. They’re also lovely to use – a gentle sponge that helps to refine skin and make everything look a little more luminous. Here!
Tropic Lip Fudge Collection
A cute little package with one of the nicest lip balms out there? Sold. Just look at the pretty packaging! So cute. If I can bring myself to give this away, I will hand it over to my sister because I know she’ll love it, too. This set comes with the three different variations – the original, a dusky rose shade and a warm pink. Lovely. Here!
Bodhi & Birch Skincare Collection
I love miniatures. I love ’em! They are the best way to try and find new products without any commitment or waste. Bodhi & Birch does typically have a higher price point too, so this gift set is a perfect way to try lots of their best-sellers in one easy kit. Here!
