It’s stocking filler time! The last post of my Christmas gift guide series is upon us and these past five days have flown past. I’ve really loved putting together my present picks and hope you’ve enjoyed reading them :) It’s officially time to gear up for the big day (well as if I wasn’t before!) and can’t wait for my best friend Santa to arrive. Now it’s time to decorate the house, put on a Christmas DVD and start wrapping up these festive treats – the biggest question left to answer is which onesie to don for the occasion – Rudolf or the Gingerbread Man?!
Who could resist this bright red cracker home to a Cow Herb Restoring Hand Cream and Natural Lip Balm? The perfect stocking addition this would be a great gift for any beauty lover or family member. The Cowshed range contains fab ingredients that smell delicious and work brilliantly on your skin. In this set you get lavender essential oil to naturally sooth and relax alongside linden blossom essential oil to detoxify. My only problem is that I don’t think I could throw the packaging away ;)
It’s no secret that I’m a longstanding fan of Caudalie, their selection of skincare treats know how to deliver and my skin loves them. This season they have released a cute tree decoration with a Mini Divine Oil inside – perfect for keeping skin super soft throughout the cold and harsh Winter. For only £8 you can’t go wrong!
Not only do you have skincare crackers to tickle your fancy this year, Philip Kinsley have also released a couple of haircare treats to add to your stocking for a mere £10. There is the Soft & Shiny Cracker which has a Mini Elasticizer and Mini Moisturise Balance Shampoo & Conditioner or the Body & Volume Cracker also with a Mini Elasticizer and Body Building Shampoo & Conditioner. A great way to be introduced to the brand and try out some new haircare minis.
Every year I eye up the This Works Christmas sets but held out until one hit the shelves that I simply couldn’t resist. That moment has arrived with The Dream Team. A set combining a Mini Deep Sleep Pillow Spray and Mini Deep Sleep Stress Less, you can ensure that you’ll drift off to the land of slumber so Santa can climb down that chimney and drop off all your presents. It’s already made me want to pick up everything in full size and the soft lavender fragrance really does help you to have a more stable nights sleep.
One of the cutest lip balm sets I’ve seen this Rose & Co trio give you three sweetly packaged salves ranging in colour and flavour. Personally I’m not a fan of the traditional Vaseline tins and prefer Rose & Co as the formulation is less greasy and doesn’t disappear off your lips. Alongside the designed tins you get a product that works and feels a treat to apply, no one wants chapped lips in Winter so ensure they are banished with this great set.
With life and work becoming increasingly stressful it’s important to take some time out to relax. For that busy person in your life treat them to the Aromatherapy Associates Instant Inner Strength which is an uplifting rollerball to provide a calm moment within stressful environments. Applied to the pulse points the essentials oils help to rebalance your state of mind so you can seek clarity in overwhelming moments.
Another cute tree decoration The Star from Aromatherapy Associates contains a Inner Strength Bath & Shower Oil that can either be paired with the rollerball or given to someone who likes to indulge in a Sunday night bath and pamper routine. You only need the smallest amount to fill your bathroom with the relaxing aroma that aids in lifting your spirits. Housed in a bright blue star box you can treat a loved one or even yourself to this spa like treatment from the comfort of your own home.
