Last Minute Gift Ideas For 'Her'


Get your shopping lists at hand, wrapping paper at the ready and don't forget to deck the halls, because Christmas is just around the corner and if you're anything like me, last minute shopping is almost tradition. Fun fact: I haven't even put up my christmas tree yet. But, a touch of disorganisation does not have to eventuate to disappointment - I've got some perfect picks for 'Her' that are sure to bring joy when revealed on the big day. It's time for me to play Santa and show you some stocking essentials for the women in your life…

NARS Digital World Lip Pencil Coffret:
For the: Lover of all things makeup. If you're lucky enough to get your paws on one of these coveted selections from the NARS Holiday range, and can find the strength to give it away, your gift recipient will be head over heels with the five incredible shades. You will definitely be adored when dealing out these stunners.

AC On Tour Australis Contouring & Highlighting Kit:
For the: Makeup Artist in training. This professional palette is like contour couture. Any makeupaholic would drool over the sight of so many gorgeous shades and possibly cry over the fact that they can actually hold this infamous newcomer. Try the Australis website if you simply cannot track this one down.

Glasshouse Candles:
For the: Homebody. These candles are a personal favourite, practically being various incarnations of heaven itself. The scents are extensive and divine, including a few new, festive favourites for the season.  I have 'Amalfi Coast' photographed above, a fresh scent to turn your home into a beach house. So good. They are decadent, delicious and definitely a popular item for underneath the tree.

Mimco Medium Pouch:
For the: Brand ballistics. If, like for me, Mimco induces a constant state of 'Oh my God I want this', you know just how gorgeous some of their accessories can be. This medium pouch is a Christmas party must, and will be loved for many years to come. Personalise by selecting something in their fave colour!

Taylor Swift Wonderstruck Perfume & Marc Jacobs Dot Perfume:
For the: Sweetest of girls. The latter is a great fragrance for older teens and early 20s gals, and the former a brilliant choice for the younger TSwift-obsessed. Dot smells sweet, yet musky and looks phenomenal on a dresser. Wonderstruck, too, comes in a gorgeous bottle and is appropriate for a 'first perfume', being quite a universally-liked scent. You can never go wrong with giving the gift of smelling fabulous.

L'occitane Gift Sets:
For the: Pampered. Hand creams, lip prods, body creams and more are packaged beautifully for you this year at L'occitane. All the work is already done, really. You can choose a gigantic gift hamper or a petite stocking stuffer - both sure to catalyse excitement when unwrapped. Definitely a great gift idea for those who are always at work and could do with some well-deserved down-time. A Sunday pamper in a pack!

Victoria Secret Scents:
For the: Angels in your life. I've accepted the fact that I cannot look like a Victoria's Secret model, but hey, no one can stop me from smelling like one. VS have some fruity, floral and fresh scents that look adorable and are the perfect accompaniment for any beach-bag stash this summer. I think the body mists are a great idea to spritz on for a subtle scent, lovely for younger girls again.

Alexa Chung IT & Le Shop Guide:
For the: Beauty Bookworm. These two 'coffee-table books' not only look beautiful but are quality reads. I'm a huge fan of Alexa and am basically head over heels with her whit and effortless writing style. 'IT' entertained me with a plethora of pics and many hilarious snippets of classic Alexa talk. Le Shop Guide is another eye-catching book-choice, mandatory to buy for the perpetually parisian (like moi). Whether you're dreaming of Paris, or are going there sometime next year, you will fall in love with this guide to to shopping up a storm - French style. The illustrations are very cute, and I can come back to this one over and over again, there being something new to discover amongst the pages each time.

The Body Shop Body Butters and Born Lippy:
For the: Deserving of some luxury. Every year, I always make time to have a peek into The Body Shop and see what luscious gift sets they have on offer, whilst making sure to mix and match some permanent-collection-prods for a personalised gift. The opportunities are endless, but I thought I'd include two cult items that you cannot go wrong with. The body butters smell like happiness and the lip balms are adorable 'add-on' prezzies. My recommendations being the mango and grapefruit scents. Mmmm.
