Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year. I love searching online for the perfect present for everyone. The element of giving throughout the festive period is what gets me so excited for it all. I wanted to share a gift guide for those that are struggling for ideas, wanting to keep to a budget, or needing to find a last minute gift. I’ve created a list of ten amazing beauty gifts for under £30. There is something for everyone; makeup, skincare, accessories.
Morphe is a great brand that has just blown up in the beauty community. Their affordable prices, yet quality products, make them a go to brand when looking for a great gift. I loved this set as I thought it would be perfect for someone who has recently started getting in to makeup. Saying this, they’re also great for someone who loves their beauty and brushes.
The Body Shop is a brand that I have loved for so long. I’ve been using their products for the longest time and I’ve never been disappointed. Their Christmas gifting range this year is incredible so I had to include them. This hand cream set is amazing for anyone, so also makes a great Secret Santa present. You could gift the set as a whole to one person, or break it up and gift them to multiple people.
This Benefit set is such good value for money I couldn’t believe it. It’s great if you’re on a budget, but wanting to find something that doesn’t really show it. You get three miniature Benefit products that are beauty fan favourites for a great price. If you’re stuck with what to get your beauty obsessed in-law or niece, this is your solution.
Liz Earle is one of my favourite skin care brands. Her Cleanse & Polish Cleanser is a go to of mine for removing makeup and really getting my skin clear and smooth. This is why I loved this gift set so much. You get five different products, two hot cloths and two sponges. It’s priced at below half of the value price, so it’s an absolute steal!
This Sleek MakeUP set is amazing for Secret Santa, stocking filler or a last minute panic buy. You get four mini matte liquid lipsticks for an average of £1.50 per lipstick. Again, similar to the hand creams, you could also break this down into four, or two, mini gifts. This would be perfect for someone who loves their lipsticks and is looking to expand their collection and try different colours.
L’Occitane have such amazing range of high end gifts, it was hard to choose which one to include. I decided to show you this set as I love the scent of Shea – it’s such a fresh and ‘clean’ scent. This is perfect for someone that you’re not too sure what to get – you can’t go wrong with a bath / shower set. The price is also so good for such great quality products.
Lush is another favourite of mine. I wouldn’t recommend things to you if I didn’t love them. Lush gift sets are always amazing, all year round. However, Christmas they’re especially amazing. In this gift set you get a bubble bar and a bath bomb in scents that are great for both male and females. A nice little bonus with Lush gift sets is that they already come wrapped too!
Makeup Revolution is one of those brands that create crazily affordable products that are also such amazing quality. I use their eyeshadows a lot, so when I saw this set I had to include it. At the time of me posting this, it’s also HALF PRICE at Superdrug! This is perfect for someone who is just starting to experiment with makeup as you also get two brushes and an eye primer in the set.
I wanted to squeeze in a bit of high end, and this YSL gift set is absolutely stunning. I personally love this concealer, for both coverage and brightening. The concealer on it’s own is the same price as this gift set, meaning you’re getting a complimentary Touche Eclat Blur Primer mini too. Everything about this gift screams Christmas to me, and it’s perfect for someone who loves a bit of high end, or even someone wanting to try a high end product.
These products are, again, a huge fan favourite for beauty lovers. So when you’re getting two products in one gift set it’s a winner in my book. These setting sprays are great products, so this is perfect for someone to put a mini in their bag for a night out, or to keep on top of their makeup throughout the day. This gift set is also vegan which is great for those animal conscious beauty lovers out there. When I last looked, it was sold out on the Urban Decay website. However, Selfridges have it in stock if you’re looking to purchase.
I hope this helps you with some last minute gifts before Christmas. I love every single one of these gift sets, it’s so tempted to get them all for myself! What’s on your Christmas list this year?
