Sometimes choosing presents for your best friend can be the hardest thing, as you don’t really have any excuses for getting it wrong. I hope that my round-up of Christmas gifts for your BFF in 2015 will give you some inspiration…
Sleek MakeUP Limited Edition Gold Standard i-Lust Eyeshadow Palette, £7.49, Superdrug | Rosie Wonders Big Bambi Necklace, £28, Flamingo Gifts | Kate Spade ‘Bits & Bobbles’ Jewellery Bag, £12, Amara | Dolce Dreams Lemon Meringue Body Whip, £15, Fake Bake Beauty | Lush Winter Wonderland Gift Set, £82.95, Lush Cosmetics | Philosophy Skincare Twinkling Snowflakes Trio, £22.50, Boots | Soap & Glory Crazy Sexy Kohl Set, £14, Boots | Olixar Power Bracelet Lightning Bracelet, £14.99, Mobile Fun | Nars Dual Intensity Blusher in Adoration, £30, Space NK | TASTE Cocktails Mojito Kit, £29, TASTE Cocktails
It may be an affordable high-street palette, but Sleek MakeUP eyeshadows definitely rival the quality of high-end brands. The shadows are so pigmented and blendable and this limited edition palette (£7.49) has the perfect Christmas party shades. There are four silky powder eyeshadows and two cream eyeshadows in a beautiful range of gold and bronze shades.
Your BFF will adore this incredibly cute deer pendant necklace (£28) from quirky brand Rosie Wonders at Flamingo Gifts. It’s made of chunky gold-toned metal and enamel and it’s the ultimate statement necklace all year round.
Most girls love a good cocktail, so why not get her a kit that contains all the ingredients to make her own? TASTE Cocktails produce amazing boxes and their Mojito one (£29) is delicious. Everything you will need is in there, from sugar syrup to five year old rum and coca leaf liqueur.
If your best friend is a Lush-lover, this bumper Christmas gift box (£82.95) with a whopping 20 products (most of which are limited edition festive releases) will make her hyperventilate with excitement. You’ll be providing her with luxurious baths for months and what can beat that?
Continuing with the pampering theme, this set from Philosophy (£22.50) is so beautiful. In it you get three sparkling and shimmering shower gels and bubble bath combos. They smell fabulous but the scent is very difficult to describe. Philosophy say that these wintertime scents smell ‘frosty’, but all I can say is that they are very crisp, fresh and awakening.
After stepping out the shower or bath having had a thoroughly enjoyable time, gift her the gift of smelling like a cupcake factory with the deliciously scented Dolce Dreams Lemon Meringue Body Whip (£15). This moisturising whipped delight smells good enough to eat and is lighter than a body butter but thicker than a lotion. It absorbs beautifully into the skin and will keep her skin hydrated all day long.
All high-end makeup devotees love a bit of Nars and this blush duo (£30) is stunning. The colour looks intense but it blends out beautifully and the lighter shimmery shade works amazingly as a highlighter. These powder blushes are so creamy and pigmented- it’ll be love at first sight.
If she is a gadget lover who’s permanently glued to her iPhone, this discreet bracelet doubles as a USB data transfer and charging cable for Apple Lightning devices. She need never be caught short again.
Finally, your best friend will never need another eyeliner again with this full colour spectrum set (£14) from Soap & Glory. The kohl pencils are so soft and creamy, so are perfect for using in the waterline too. In this set you get a black, brown, purple, dark blue and green liner to create a multitude of different looks with.
