AN INEXPENSIVE CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE FOR WOMEN



I am a huge fan of Christmas, I love the build up, I love putting up our tree and I love spending time with the family.  One thing I am not such a fan of is buying gifts.  I am such a worrier when it comes to these things and I always over think it.  This year I decided to be a little more ruthless and just go with my initial gut, and so far so good! 

I've bought quite a few gifts now and so here are a few ideas for anyone who may still be looking for some inspiration!

BEAUTY BITS 

VEET SENSITIVE PRECISION BEAUTY STYLER WITH HD V-TEC BROW PENCIL*


I was actually sent this product to review, however, as soon as they told me it included the HD brow pencil I was immediately sold.  I love my brows, they shape the face and are a must in any makeup routine.  I was really just interested in the pencil, however the beauty styler is a fab product and I have to say I am sold on it!  The styler can be used for the face, under arms and the bikini line. With its precision blades it's perfect for getting into small areas and giving you the best shape possible.  The styler also comes with 6 separate attachments and a carry bag, so perfect for travelling too! This is a great gift to give someone, it would make for a pretty awesome stocking filler. The gift pack is retailed at £39.99, however you can pick it up in Boots or Amazon for around £19.99 at the moment.

Although I was gifted this, I would most definitely re-purchase it, the brow pencil alone is worth it (RRP £22), but having the added bonus of styler is perfect for keeping all those 'bits n' bobs' in shape! 

MAKEUP REVOLUTION HD PRO EYESHADOW & BRUSH SET - Was £20 NOW £12 

REAL TECHNIQUES YOUR PICKS MAKEUP BRUSH SET - Was £25 NOW £20

I am a huge fan of both of these brands and use them regularly myself hence why I have included them here.  I do makeup as a side job and I often get asked what sort of products I can recommend. Whilst I do use a lot of high end products, I know these aren't always affordable to everyone, so for something more affordable then these are perfect!  The colour pay off with Makeup Revolution is fantastic and their brushes are also pretty fab! Real Techniques is one of those cult brands that everyone has heard of but again they are affordable.  Both of these items are also on sale from Superdrug at the moment, go grab them quick! 



FOOD & DRINK

THE COLLECTION PINK SPARKLING WINE & HEART CHOCOLATES - £20

MINI WINE DUO & GLASSES - £15

SPARKLING COCKTAIL COLLECTION - £15

All of these gift sets are from M&S, good old M&S!  I really like their gift sets, I would love to receive one of these, wine & chocolate, where can you go wrong?  We all know that M&S deliver on quality so you know that anything you pick up here will be worth the money.  The Cocktail set is one of my favourites, if you wanted to spruce that up a little you could always purchase some martini glasses as an extra touch, you can pick them up at Home Bargains or Asda / Tesco for a few pounds each.



COTTAGE DELIGHT, THE CHEESE LARDER SET - £16

This may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I am a huge cheese and chutney fan, and I know that many of my older family members are too, and so I think that this is a great gift idea.  This set doesn't come with the cheese, but I'd buy a gift card for around £10 to go in with this with a little note that simply said 'this is for cheese' or something quirky!  It's a little different and may appeal to someone.  This set is available from John Lewis 

So, there you have it!  A few suggestions on some inexpensive Christmas gifts that won't break the bank! 

I'd love to know what you're getting for the ladies in your life.  Please leave me links in the comments to your gift ideas so I can check those out also.
