Gift guides for the girls

It’s  CHRISTMAS …. time to spread some of that cheer with some gorgeous gifts to tell your girl crew just how much you love them!

For the Sporty Spices

What a cute stocking filler for those gym bunnies in your life! These natty litte hair ties are supersoft and yet they have super all day staying power. Ideal for sweating it out in style.

For those who like to nest

Christmas is a time for supreme cosiness and this cashmere knit has cosy (quite literally) written all over it. Plus its on sale, so you might even gift a little gift to yourself.

For the make-up molls 

Cailyn Face modelling countour set – its the palette to beat all palettes, from the little known Cailyn Cosmetics range, which is all about the cruelty free, non nasty ingredients. Its a one stop shop which contains an all-in-one, primer and finish, and six shades of contours to sculpt and define features. The lightweight, ultrafine pressed finish powder adds a soft focus effect for a flawless finish. It looks scary but is actually a doddle to use (bust out the You Tube tutorials if necessary – ) Anyway if the recipient is a make up fan, it will be right up her alley!

For the magpies

If you want to spread some positive energy, Alex and Ani pieces are infused with lots of lovely vibes which make gorgeous gifts. This set represents Merry, Blessed and Bright and are a pretty trio of positivity. Happiness is contagious, spread the joy.


For the beauty queens
If you don’t know what beauty buys to get your lotion and potion loving friend, then an Advent Calender is the job. The Kiehls calender is worth over three times the RRP and has lots of lovely testers AND full size products to try.

For the soul seekers
Everyone should have one of these. The Happiness Planner is a planner like no other. Instead of focusing on productivity, it focuses on “your happiness”. It is designed to help you welcome more positivity, joy, and happiness into your life by applying the practices of positive thinking, mindfulness, gratitude, and self-development. The focus is on making each day a positive experience, building introspection into your routine and increasing self-awareness. What a gorgeous gift.
