My 2019 Women's Christmas Gift Guide*

It's time of year again! I'm back with my Christmas gift guides and I couldn't be more excited about it! Every year I look forward to putting these together and it's always something that is guaranteed to put me in the festive mood. Like previous years, this year I'll be sharing my gift ideas for women and men, and they'll also be a food and drink gift guide, and even one for pets! With this being my first year as a dog mum, I'm more excited than ever for Christmas Day and as I've been picking up lots of bits for Bear, I thought I would put one day together, so that will be up later this week. Anyway let's get back to today's post, my women's gift guide. I've got an array of different ideas for you so I hope if you're looking for inspiration for your mum, sister, partner, friend etc, that this is useful. Let's get started!
flatlay - T-Zone glitter face masks, Eye Majic instant eyeshadow, MasqueBAR gold gift set, Jana Reinhardt necklace, Sensationail nail polishes

Nailtural Nail Polishes £6*

Let's start with nail polish because you can never have too many can you? If you know a beauty lover, or someone who likes to get their nails done regularly then look no further than the new Nailtural Nail Polishes from Sensationail. There are over 20 beautiful colours to choose from, all with natural ingredients and a 10 Free Formula and every product is vegan and totally cruelty free! Not only do these look absolutely gorgeous on, but they are also easy to apply, fast drying and can be removed quickly which is an added bonus! The shades below are Naturally Nude and Profound Plumeria so maybe not strictly Autumn and Winter colours but shades that you could wear all year round. There's also a Cuticle Oil available and a non-drying nail varnish remover which has been enriched with soy and plant extracts. These are £6 each and you can find out more on the Sensationail website!

MasqueBAR Gold Face Mask Gift Set £10*

Ahh I do love a face mask! If you do too or a family member is partial to a bit of pampering, then MasqueBAR have some great gift sets to choose from. Christmas time is made for luxury and can you get much more luxurious than gold foil face masks? I'm a big fan of the Gold Foil Peel Off Mask but not only is that included, you also get the Gold Hydrogel Eye Mask, the Gold Foil Calming Sheet Mask and a Gold Foil Peel Off Mask Pod. MasqueBAR masks tend to be anything from £3 onwards so I think £10 for all of this is fab! What I love about these masks is that you can tell they're of high quality and they always make my skin feel rejuvenated and refreshed. I've not been disappointed so far so I couldn't recommend them enough! You can buy their masks at Feelunique and Boots!

Osmo Deep Moisture Gift Set £19.99*

Now for some haircare! I don't know about you but I hate paying loads for my haircare products so I tend to just grab whatever's on offer or I'll buy a few at a time when there's a good deal on, so if you know anyone that's the same, Christmas is the perfect time to treat them to something a little bit more luxurious. One set I think is brilliant value is the OSMO Deep Moisture Gift Set which is currently £19.99 at Sally Beauty. These bottles are normally around £14 each so you're getting a huge saving there. This deeply hydrating gift set can banish all of those damaged hair blues without weighing it down giving silky, smooth, manageable results. Formulated with Pataua Oil and Keratin Complex, it's the perfect combination for that fresh look for the new year. This particular set includes Deep Moisture Shampoo, Deep Moisture Conditioner and and Intensive Deep Repair Mask.

Love Leggings Khaki Cropped Leggings £13.50*

Moving away from beauty for a little while, let's talk clothing! For those who live in pairs of leggings or just like to have a pair to throw on whenever, I mean who doesn't? they're one of the comfiest clothing items ever, Love Leggings are a brand you need to know about. At Love Leggings, they offer a range of non-see-through leggings (something that is always a worry!) including Everyday Cotton, Maternity, Kids and Sports Leggings meaning there's something for everyone! The particular pair below are the Khaki Cropped Leggings - that's personally just the style I prefer and I adore anything khaki coloured and I am incredibly excited to wear these over Xmas! These are 3/4 length and are available in a range of sizes, and they're only £13.50! I think for a good quality pair of leggings that's really reasonable. Many more colours and styles are available on the website so make sure you check them out!

Jana Reinhardt Polar Bear Necklace £85*

You can't go wrong with a piece of jewellery at Christmas time and the first of two items I want to share in this gift guide is this stunning Polar Bear Necklace from Jana Reinhardt. With a variety of lengths and colours to choose from, it really is an absolutely beautiful piece that anyone would be thrilled to receive. Jana Reinhardt pieces are all about personality and I think that comes through with this. All of their jewellery is made in Worthing by a small team of professional goldsmiths and it's made entirely by hand so you know you're getting something special with any item of theirs. Whilst the Polar Bear necklace is obviously close to my heart due to my own little Bear, they also have a Penguin Pendant Necklace which is adorable. Gifts of this style have become more and more popular since a certain John Lewis advert years ago so maybe this would be a nice idea if you know anyone who particularly loved that. The necklaces are £85 so the most expensive item in this gift guide but when buying jewellery you want to know it's going to last and I think the price really reflects the quality here.

T-Zone Glitter Face Masks £2.99*

Back to face masks, because there really is nothing better when having a bit of a pamper evening. I have a huge stash in the bathroom now, it's getting a little ridiculous! T-Zone are a brand I've used for years and years, I'm pretty sure they were one of the first ever skincare brands I turned to as a teenager and even now I pick up their products every so often. They've recently released Peel Off Glitter Masks in Black and Silver, and these would be such a good addition to a girl's night or maybe something fun to do on Christmas eve! Not only are these fun but they do also draw our impurities, help keep skin clear and refine pores. These are £2.99 each at Superdrug so really affordable too.

Soul Analyse I Am Strong Bracelet £30*

The second item of jewellery in my gift guide and this is the incredibly powerful I Am Strong Rope Bracelet from Soul Analyse. Bracelets are one of my favourite items of jewellery and Soul Analyse have a huge selection available including other affirmation bracelets such as I Am Loved, I Am Me, I Am Enough, I Am Blessed and Believe, aswell as crystal necklaces, affirmation necklaces and rings, and even gift sets. I personally chose the I Am Strong bracelet just because a lot of the time I don't feel that strong and it's a nice reminder whenever I'm feeling down. I think the black rope is a beautiful contrast to the engraved gold curved bar, and whilst it's clearly a stunning piece, it's something that could easily be worn for work aswell as it doesn't stand out too much. It could be worn all year round. Not only does this bracelet look pretty but it's also incredibly comfortable too due to it's sliding clasp which makes it easy to adjust. The rope bracelets range from £25 - £30 which I think is reasonable for something so unique.Soul Analyse I Am Strong Bracelet

Eye Majic Instant Eyeshadow £5.99 - £19.99*

If like me eyeshadow isn't really something you're that experienced with, then Eye Majic are the brand for you. The world's first instant eyeshadow. Yep it's ridiculously simple to apply and you get a range of shades to choose from so whether you like something a bit more subtle or want an intense smokey eye, they've got you covered. The great thing about these is that they're travel friendly so fab to take away with you, or to have in your handbag ready to apply rather than packing full size palettes and because of the pigment, you really do get the quality you would from more expensive brands. Rich colours, easy blending and they're long lasting. What's not to love? Make-up in seconds! You can find Eye Majic on Amazon and the 20 Pack, 4 Multi-Pack is priced at £19.99. Smaller packs are available at £5.99 each too.

EcoPanda Makeup Remover Pads £20.90*

EcoPanda are a relatively small brand really keen on replacing conventional beauty products with more environmentally friendly products, something I think a lot us beauty bloggers should be doing where we can. Their Bamboo Makeup Remover Pads are ideal for anyone wanting to make simple swaps. For £20.90, available from Amazon, you get 18 reusable makeup remover pads, one laundry bag to store them in and a gorgeous bamboo storage jar that would look pretty on any dressing table! Whilst these might not be the cheapest option, you can be assured that you've made a small change and imagine the impact we could have if everyone did this! There's no need to worry about the quality when it comes to these pads either as they are double layer, made from 100% organic bamboo cotton and contain no plastic. Suitable for all skin types and as they're washable, they can be used over and over again. These could be a great gift for any beauty lovers you know, or maybe as a gift to yourself if you've been after some skincare alternatives.

What a great guide with SO many different ideas! The polar bear necklace is so sweet, and I'm really intrigued by the eyeshadow sponge. I'm also rubbish at eye makeup so they could be a great little hack! Have you used them before?
