Welcome to the last instalment of my Christmas Gift Guides for 2015! This one is a little delayed and I do apologise – the change over of my blog has meant a small disruption to my schedule! Nonetheless we are here, we’re on the new domain and we’ve got the final post ready to go! This is my Stocking Stuffers/Last Minute Gifts – I had so much fun getting this one ready! This would be perfect for Secret Santa at the office or a little addition to an almost finished gift! And I can 100% confirm these all fit in your average stocking – just! It’s overflowing with treats that any beauty lover will enjoy!
Hello Hair is one of my favourite hair treatments – I discovered it this year and now can’t live without it! Their Botanic Edition* is the newest addition to their range, and smells so perfect – the addition of lavender oil means it’s perfect for putting in your hair overnight because it helps lull you to sleep! I know I’d be super happy to have one (or ten) of these in my stocking!
QVS* products are available at Target stores and they have some awesome Stocking Stuffer products available! The eyelash curler is actually amazing, and the nail buffer and matching tweezers are perfect for the stocking and for travel!
Soul By Nature Coffee & Coconut Body Scrub* is the ideal gift, their little 50g bags contain 4-5 uses all over the body. Your skin will feel so soft and smooth, it’s heavenly!
Designer Brands have some gorgeous little makeup gifts perfect to be squeezed into the last bit of room in a stocking! Their Mosaic Blushes* are a personal favourite because they’re perfect for all skintones and lightly pigmented, so you can go for a more subtle or more ‘full on’ look.
The Benefit Cosmetics Real Tempting Threesome* contains three of Benefit’s best selling products in deluxe and full sizes – the They’re Real Mascara, Push-up Liner and Remover. The perfect gift for a friend this Christmas!
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel* is one of my nail polish formulas. It lasts for a really long time on your nails and gives a gel-like effect. A duo with a colour and top coat would make an amazing gift and fits neatly in a stocking!
Glasshouse Fragrances do some of my favourite candles, their simple packaging exudes elegance and their miniatures make perfect gifts! For a sweet but not overpowering scent, I definitely recommend Coney Island!
Antipodes are one of my favourite skincare brands, and their aptly named Joyful Hand & Body Cream* has the perfect Christmas scent! Antipodes have incredibly luxurious products and this multi-tasker is just one on my list of products I’d recommend from this brand in a heartbeat!
So…? Fragrances So…? Superstar* reminds me completely of high school when everybody would have a collection of these bottles and in their lockers to use before they met boys after school! Whilst thankfully those days are behind me, these perfumes still smell incredible and are really quite affordable making them good for a last minute gift!
Scout Cosmetics Nail Polish* are the perfect non-gel polish formula. 5 Free and eco friendly, these polishes apply opaque on the nails and they stay there, I tend to get around 4-5 days wear out of them which is basically a miracle for normal nail polish! These polishes are the perfect stocking sized treat!
Lanolips have launched two new Christmas products to the market this year. Their Cranberry Lip Ointment* is special for the season with a festive flavour, and comes in a gorgeous little ornament to sit on your Christmas tree! Lanolips is fantastic for dry lips or cracked skin around the nails and is one of those handy products to have lying around!
They also have a limited edition Lip Cosmetic Case* which contains to of their Lip Ointments with colour and a limited edition Lanolips cosmetic case – perfect for throwing a few lip products in the bag when you’re on the go! These are perfect glosses that you know are hydrating for your lips, something really important in a hot, dry Australian summer!
Philosophy do some amazing Christmas sets every year, and this year is no exception! I’ve already featured them in another Gift Guide, but have to give special mention to their Snow Angel Ornament. Another tree sized ornament, it comes with a travel size of their Christmas Snow Angel Shampoo/Shower Gel/Bubble Bath – the perfect travel gift because it’s such a multi-tasker!
I hope this has helped you out with a few last minute stocking stuffers and Christmas gift ideas if you’re still out shopping! There’s only a few days left until Christmas so good luck!
