Love ’em or hate ’em, we just can’t escape gift guides at this time of year and I’m sorry to say I’m jumping on that bandwagon right now as I bring you my first ’12 Days of Blogmas’ post: the Christmas gift guide for gifts under £50. Before I crack on and show you my top picks for the festive season, I thought I would briefly explain the 12 Days of Blogmas – essentially I really wanted to take on Blogmas this year but considering I’m doing daily uploads for Vlogmas over on my Youtube channel it felt a little like I was biting off more than I could chew. I wanted to make sure the content I was creating for this little space was still decent quality so I decided that, rather than uploading every day until Christmas Eve, I’m going to upload every other day until 24th December…
Anyway, onto the gift ideas which we all know is what we’re actually here for. None of the links below are affiliate links so feel free to shop to your hearts content!
I don’t know about you guys but I love receiving makeup and other beauty bits in my stocking at Christmas. While I’m more than happy to go makeup shopping for myself, there’s something pretty lovely about opening that product you’ve been meaning to replace for weeks or the one you’ve been lusting after on Instagram all winter long. Here are my top festive picks for the year, all under £50:
1. Too Faced Gingerbread Spice Palette // 2. Too Faced Melted Matte ‘Sweet Smell of Christmas’ Gift Set // 3. Liz Earle Skincare Giftset // 4. Benefit Magical Brow Stars Gift Set // 5. Kiehl’s Holiday Skin Care Gift Set // 6. Best of Bumble & Bumble Gift Set // 7. Elizabeth Arden Youth Restoring Essential Set // 8. Too Faced Under the Christmas Tree Set // 9. Zoeva Eye Brush Set // 10. Sol De Janeiro Bum Bum Carnival Magic Set
Now fashion is such a personal thing that I struggle to recommend items for gift guides because everyone’s style is so different – what I like you’re not necessarily going to like and therefore whoever you’re buying for might not either but, because you read this blog, I’m going to hope that you like my style enough to want my recommendations…
1. Dungaree Dress // 2. Polo Neck Sweater // 3. Black Slogan Hoodie // 4. Faux Fur Coat // 5. Check Coat // 6. Black Boots // 7. White Trainers // 8. Chain Print Shirt // 9. Faux Snakeskin Bag // 10. Coin Earrings Set
Ok so I may have cheated a little with this section because not all of these are £50 or under but some of them I just couldn’t resist including…
1. Kindle Paperwhite // 2. Alexa Echo // 3. Casio Watch // 4. Bluetooth Speaker // 5. Scented Candle // 6. Star Sign Trinket Box // 7. Niederegger Marzipan Gift Set* // 8. Feminists Don’t Wear Pink Book // 9. Pop Sockets // 10. Memory Journal
