Well it is here again, Christmas that is. Time to dust off that tree, get the lights and decorations on, begin to stock up on lovely Christmassy foods like mince pies, pigs in blankets and of course mulled wine, and generally get yourself into the ‘festive spirit’.
But of course Christmas comes with it’s challenges, the biggest being WHAT TO BUY your loved ones! This year therefore, we thought we would get you in the Christmassy mood with our curated gift guides, where we have taken all the headaches and tired feet out of the process!
Over the next week or so we will be bringing you an imaginative set of gift guides, sectioned not just by ‘her’ or ‘him’ but also by personality, the woman who loves to spa, the thrill seeking kids, the homemaker and so on, all aimed at making your Christmas shopping as pleasurable for you as possible and ensuring the recipient will be delighted and excited by their gift. After all it is better to give than receive, right?!
We decided to start with the hardest of all. Teens, as we know that they can be a funny bunch to please, but we have something for the female teens or Tweens in your life that might just take them from bedroom door slamming to hugging in seconds.
If your teen is all about hair products then TIGI Bed Head is perfect for achieving the big hair look. Gift sets include, Superstar Thickening Spray & Blow Out Golden Illuminating Shine Cream. Thicker hair with a flawless shine. The perfect combo!
Collection have a great little selection of affordable palettes that appeal to the teen who is dabbling in makeup application and loves a good make up tutorial. You may have heard them mention names like Zoella & Vivianna Does Make Up – sounds familiar? Then a make up palette is the perfect gift! Collection have a great selection to get them started, inlcuding Blush and Glow, Your Style Your Mood Eye Shadow, Conceal And Light Like A Pro and Face The Day. From blush to contour, concealing to smokey eyes. Something for every budding beauty fanatic.
Eco Tools have a great little stocking filler set of brushes, perfect again for the teen that likes their make up. Complete with three mini essential brushes for the eyes and face, a great starter kit and a complimentary gift to go along with the palettes.
If Avon isn’t currently on your radar for Christmas gifts, it should be! We just loved this girly Winter Nights Scented Multiwick Candle and fluffy pom pom keyring accessory, the ‘IT’ accessory for teenage girls right now! And you can purchase online too so you don’t have to wait for that familiar tapping at the door!
We just loved this Silver Pineapple ‘Pina Colada’ light by Mon Ballon Rouge. Available in multiple colours from pastels to metalics, this light is a must have for your teens boudoir. In fact, it would suit most adults as well. We love our Pina Colada lamp which takes pride of place in our Lady Loves HQ. (And we are in our 30s!!)
Call us nostalgic but our first experience with beauty products were rose scented, so we love Dr Organics Rose Perfect Complexion Set. The trio, which includes a face scrub, face mask and oil means your little lady can enjoy an at home pampering session – and the Organic formula means you know it’s full of goodness for her teenage skin.
Colouring books are big news, billed as the ultimate stress reliever, perfect for angst ridden teens! Millie Marotta’s Animal Kingdom Hardback Colouring Book however deserves special praise, with its gorgeous luxury Hardcover and sophisticated drawings it will have the whole family fighting to join in.
