Whee, I’m back with another fun gift guide!! And I tell you, it’s a good job I’m so prepared with these gift guides because some of these treats are limited edition and time sensitive!
Who said that Christmas presents have to come on the 25th? What about an amazing Advent Calendar that will keep her thinking of you all throughout December?
Did I mention how much I’ve been loving shopping for this Gift Guide series? Now just to sit on my credit card and stop myself from buying them all for me!!
In case you missed the previous guide, you can check out my Travelling Girl Gift Guide here.

Quite the luxury gift, but one that is certain to get her very excited. With twelve doors containing a mixture of full-sized and mini CT favourites inside a stunning set of galaxy themed glittered drawers. This is a seriously decadent gift. The trend for beauty advent calendars has exploded the last couple of years with many beauty, skincare and scent brands all bringing out their best for the festive season. I couldn’t even pick just one – see a few more of my favourites from ASOS, Mac and Liberty here, here and here.
There’s something really pampering and indulgent about a great sheet mask. Even better if you get together with the girls and enjoy as part of a girls night in. I recently invested in one of the Rodial Pink Diamond sheet masks and absolutely loved it. Unlike traditional sheet masks that can slide around and leave you looking, well, a little bit weird. This ultra light transparent firming mask clings to your face and barely looks like you are wearing one (no scaring the pizza delivery guy when he comes to the door!). At $12 for one, this is a generous little stocking stuffer.
During Mistletoe season she’ll want to ensure that her lips are in tip top condition and perfectly kissable. Fresh has been one of my favourite brands for lip balm for a while now and this little set including their balm and a scrub will keep chapped lips at bay.
If (and that’s a big if) she hasn’t purchased this already for herself, she will certainly appreciate this cult highlighter palette appearing under her Christmas tree. A highlight palette that gets all the beauty girls excited
Because who doesn’t want long and strong nails? Unfortunately, years of shellac manicures and a nasty habit of picking at them has left my nails a little weakened and prone to breaking. OPI Nail Envy is pure magic when it comes to growing your nails long naturally. Maybe give it as an early gift so that she can get her nails looking perfect for the party season. A bottle of OPI Nail Envy along with a pretty colour polish and an emery board would make a really simple gift that fits almost any budget.
Nothing screams festive like this cute glitter and gold brush set from Sephora. The multi-colour sparkle immediately puts me in the Christmas party spirit and it got great reviews online.
Before you go in with that sheet mask – you’re going to need to ensure that your face is squeaky clean! I received my FOREO Luna in my Summer FabFitFun box and it has become a staple part of my routine ever since. I was never a massive fan of the brush-head cleansing devices as I found the bristles a little irritating on my quite sensitive skin. The FOREO is so gentle, while still being super effective – it leaves my skin glowy, soft and perfectly clean.
Is it a Christmas ornament? Yes and no, it’s the Fenty Mini Fairy Bomb, and we’d love to cover our tree with these guys! A little ball of glitter puff highlight for that extra bit of festive sparkle during the Christmas period. Glimmering iridescent pink shimmer with a vanilla-coconut scent. What’s not to love?
Blown-Ouai (Dyson Hairdryer + Ouai hair products) –
A gorgeous limited edition set put together by Sephora brings together the lusted after Dyson hairdryer with a set of Ouai hair products. The set cost the same as the hairdryer by itself, making all those gorgeous hair products basically free!
I’m just all about the sparkle over Christmas – it’s the time of year that you can go all out. This luxurious Cartier scented highlight powder finishes your look perfectly. Designed to be layered over the Cartier La Panthère Eau de Parfum.
A part of Chinese beauty rituals for centuries, jade and rose quartz rollers are said to help blood circulation, skin tone, elasticity of the skin and lymphatic drainage. Also known to help reduce puffiness, wrinkles, dark under eye circles and eliminate toxins. I have a couple of these on my Amazon wishlist and an inkling that one might be arriving in my Winter FabFitFun box, which I can’t wait to try out! Keep in the fridge for a cooling and refreshing treat for your skin.
Perfume is a pretty personal gift, but if you are confident that you know what she likes it can be a really thoughtful purchase. I always wear the same scent, but with some beautiful options on the market, I still enjoy checking others out. This Aerin Amber Musk smells like a good choice for Autumn/Winter weather.
If your beauty addict is anything like me, her bathroom shelves and dressing table are likely overflowing with product. These cute glass jars are a super chic and affordable storage solution. I have this same set in my bathroom and they keep my Q-tips, cotton balls and cotton pads dry and free of dust and dirt.
When prepping and pampering your skin, what about these terry-cloth spa facial headbands? Such a useful little stocking stuffer. A simple Velcro design means that they hold all your hair (even the baby fine hairs) back away from your face. Keeping your hair dry and free-from whatever products you are putting on your skin. A must have, practical gift for any beauty girl!
So those are my beauty suggestions!! Which of those do you think you’d most love to receive?
I must remember to order my own advent calendar – which one should I pick??
My Gift Guide for the Foodie will be up next – suitable for both guys and girls. I will be showcasing some really delicious gifts!
