A Hefty Gift Guide For Women All Ages


Hello you little Christmas elves.

So you may have seen an numerous amount of gift guides, but this ones different. Instead of setting it all on one relative or friend gift guide, I've just decided to do a h e f t y one. So this is it, we're covering everything beauty. However, I must say L'Occitane have smashed it with the Christmas idea's for her.

Hair care.

Skin care.

Make up.

Perfume.

So let's get away with it..

L'Occitane Classic Gift Collection | So this a gorgeous little set full of minis, along with one 70ml product. Inside we have the Shea Butter Hand Cream, perfect for dry hands - and of course.. who doesn't suffer with dry hands over the winter months?! No one. You also have the Light Comforting Cream, this is perfect for sensitive skin types and also combination. It keeps your skin feels moisturised, soft and silky. The perfect base for any make up face. There's a Cherry Blossom Shimmering Lotion, it leaves a iridescent veil on the body. Another body product which is the Fresh & Lemony Verbena Shower Gel, which is perfect for men or women in fact. It leaves your skin feels super luxurious, and it has scents of orange and lemon - super citrousy! Then lastly is a mini/tester of the Terre de Lumière eau de perfum which has a gorgeous scent to it, it's fresh and warm and has top notes of amber and pink pepper. Middle notes of honey and lavender, and also base notes of acacia and tonka bean. It's one of them fragrances which smell better after applying.

Girls With Attitude Iridescent Ombré Highlighting Palette | I know, how beautiful is this palette? So this is an online exclusive over on the GWA website, and it's only £15.99. So the packaging is super pretty, it's texture duo chrome so it changes colours in different lighting. I am totally getting unicorn type of vibe from the packaging to the shades inside. So you have three shades inside Rose Glow which is a gorgeous rose gold shade (of course), it has a gorgeous hint of champagne. Then you have Prismatic Opal which is a pearly pink, and also Eclipse which is purple/violet pearly shade. Each highlighter shade is super pigmented and also is a velvet/creamy type of formula. I can see myself using these, but for when I want to shine like a diamond as it's super super out there. If you know a highlighter obsessive out there, then this is for them!



L'Occitane Floral Hand Cream Trio | Hand cream is a must for these colder months, and this would make the perfect gift for someone who suffers with dry hands or hands that need a little TLC! So you have three hand creams which are included inside, first up you have the Cherry Blossom hand cream. This is a fresh and fruity scent which is enriched with Shea butter and vitamin E, which nourishes and protects the skin. Next is the Roses et Reines hand cream, and also nail. This cream is very sweet and a floral scent. So not only does it protect and nourish your skin, it also strengthens your nails. A two in one type of job! Lastly we have the Ariésienne Velvet Hand Cream which is my favourite out of the three, however the most thickest. This keeps your hands at bay, and keeps them feeling nourished along with a long lasting scent of Grasse rose, violet, and saffron from Provence.

Lily England Vent & Barrel Brush | So this is two brushes from Lily England. The Vent one is a flat back brush, which is great for detangling and for every hair type. Even to get them nasty knots out whether you've been in the shower, or finished blow drying. Then the Barrel brush is the perfect brush for styling and drying your hair. It's the perfect blow-dry brush. The two of them are the most gorgeous brushes I've ever laid my eyes on. The rose gold packaging is totally gorgeous, along with the silver touches. The handle has a rubber casing, so it's comfortable to hold for a long amount of time.

Girls With Attitude Aphrodite Eyeshadow Palette | You may have seen this a few times already over on my Instagram, but this is one of the new eyeshadow palettes which is an online exclusive. So you have a mixture of mattes, shimmers and metallic shades and they're super velvety and pigmented.  Out of all 18 shades, Minx is my most favourite! It's a gorgeous deep rose gold, and I am a sucker for a rose gold in anything. I love the mixture of shades with them being browns/bronze/gold shades, with a touch of purple, black, and peach. I love how this palette has a name for each and every shade, as not all GWA palettes have this. I love every single one of the GWA palettes and for just £14.99 - you cannot go wrong.

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Minis - Nude Love Collection | Not only are Huda Beauty my favourite liquid lipsticks, this Nude collection is my favourite out of the whole lot. So the four shades you have included are : Crush, Girlfriend, Wifey and Sugar Mama. Crush is a peachy nude, Girlfriend is more of a warm brown nude. Wifey is more of a neutral nude quite minimal, and Sugar Mama is more of a pink nude, quite similar to Crush. These liquid mattes are super long lasting and light weight on the lips, they dry super matte but don't go bitty/flake and are so easy to reapply. You get quite a few hours out of these lipsticks, and I just cannot fault them. I have nine altogether, and they're super super gorgeous shades. These retail at £33 but for four different shades, they're individually just over £8 each - and that's so good. You can get so much out of these minis and they're perfect for on the go 'small' handbag.

L'Occitane Delicate Cherry Blossom Collection | This is one of my favourites for packaging, and attention to detail. For what is included and the packaging, in a whole I think it looks a whole lot more money than just £60. This set would make an amazing gift for a Mum, or even a Nan - or a friend! So inside you get four products, all really good sizes and they smell incredible! As you can guess it smells fruity, fresh and delicate from it being the Cherry Blossom collection. So inside you get a hand cream, an eau de toilette which smells insane, a mousse douceur bath and shower gel, and also a soap! This is more a spring scent to me, but it's perfect for a Christmas gift for someone to hold on and be prepared for the up coming months.

Sleek Cosmetics Matte Me Must Haves | To the more budget side of liquid lipsticks, I have the Sleek matte lipsticks in four different shades. You have Birthday suit, Rioja Red, Velvet Slipper and Old Hollywood. So Birthday Suit is a gorgeous pink, deep nude. Rioja Red - of course is a bright Christmassy red! Velvet Slipper is a super pretty medium plum shade. Then last but not least is the Old Hollywood, which is a more deep plum shade. These are again - minis, however for just £6 - you cannot go wrong what so ever! A total bargain, the lipsticks are super long lasting for what they're priced at compared to the Huda Beauty lipsticks. And yes.. again, for them being minis - they're the perfect clutch bag lipstick.


That's everything that I'm totally loving and think would make amazing gifts for her in your life.
