|Christmas Gift Guide For Her Under £30|
Now that I've covered Gifts For Her Over £30 and Stocking Filler Ideas, my last present inspiration post includes gifts under £30, again with a mixture of beauty, home-ware, clothing and accessories. If you're short on money or have a lot of presents to buy and expenses at Christmas time, then these gifts are more affordable, whilst still being thoughtful and great quality.
One of my favourite, body products all year round, but especially during A/W, is the L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil. A treat for anyone lucky to receive it, this oil transforms into a luxurious foam on contact with water. Almond oil nourishes the skin, leaving it silky-soft and smelling delicious, without feeling greasy.
Another product that will get the body in tip top shape for the new year, is the Nails Inc Baby Nailkale Collection. Containing a base coat, a baby pink polish and an illuminating top coat, this trio is all you need for a perfect manicure. Infused with kale, the famous superfood, the Nailkale range works to strengthen the nails by boosting the production of keratin. I have a few of these polishes and highly recommend the formula and the wide brushes make them so quick to apply.
The H&M home range contains some real gems that make perfect presents. They have some gorgeous, decorative pieces that add such a nice touch to every room, including this beautiful H&M Metal Photo Frame. A picture frame is a relatively cheap option, but you can make it a really sentimental gift by putting special photographs or drawings into it. I'd choose that kind of present over an expensive piece of jewellery or something similar, any day!
For animal lovers, anything with a cute print on it will get a great reaction, particularly if said animal lover doesn't have the puppy they desperately want yet *cough cough*. This Ben de Lisi Red Dog Cushion is my pick of the bunch, as the french bulldog design is simple and not at all tacky, so it would compliment many styles of home decor.
Phone cases can start to look a bit worse for wear after a while, so it's always nice to receive a brand spanking new one. Skinny Dip are the brand to turn to for fun, pretty cases and I just love the Skinny Dip iPhone Bee Case. Their quirky designs are perfect for people who like to make their phone a statement accessory.
Zoeva make some of the most beautiful, makeup brushes on the market and they're such high-quality for the affordable price tag. Keeping with the theme of rose-gold that seems to be taking over my gift guides, I think the Zoeva Rose Golden Makeup Brushes just look and feel amazing. To suit your budget, you could give one brush alone, or mix and match a few that you think someone would use and even pop them into a cosmetic bag (see my Stocking Filler Gift Guide, for a lovely one!).
A set of cosy pyjamas are not only a practical present for the rest of winter, but whoever receives some can change into them before settling down to watch Christmas films and rubbish TV, once the Christmas dinner is finished! But, these M&S Neon Striped Pyjamas still look stylish and not as frumpy as some, so the wearer will still feel a little dressed up for the special day.
The Nars Killer Heels Lipstick Set, a limited-edition item from the Steven Klein collaboration, doesn't just give you one amazing lipstick, but five. Containing a few nudes, a red and darker, berry shade, this line-up is a mini, lipstick wardrobe and has every colour needed to compliment different looks. Ideal for any makeup lover, I think!
A twist on a usual, check print, this ASOS Brushed Pretty Check Scarf is gorgeous. With shades of purple, pink and black, it'll add a bright pop of colour to the plainer, darker outfits we tend to gravitate towards at this time of year. Plus, it's huge, so is sure to feel extra snug in the cold, winter weather.
What's on your Christmas list, this year?
