I’m finally rounding up Gift Guide Week with the the ultimate eye candy gifts. I started out the week with Gifts & Stocking Stuffers under $25, followed by my picks for the Under $75 range, and now we’re talking about $75 and beyond folks… there are some really droolworthy gifts in here to give (or maybe keep for yourself… you’ve earned it, I promise you that!)
I have serious love for Laura Mercier’s Holiday collections because it never feels like expense was spared. This amazing palette folds and slides out into the perfect makeup portfolio. Think twelve shadows, two blushes, a bronzer, two cake eyeliners, one pencil liner and two double ended brushes all in tortoise and chocolate hued clutch-like case. It’s so fabulous I’m keeping mine for myself!
For the person in your life (or to put on your own list for Santa) who knows the real struggle of getting a decent blowout. I’ve had the Buttercup blowdryer on my wishlist forever, and this kit comes with products, clips, nozzle attachment and round brush just to make life easier.
If you’re looking to gift a fragrance this year, Chanel is the ultimate classic and will no doubt impress. The Chance range comes in many varieties now, but my signature scent and personal favourite is the Eau Tendre. I’ve had strangers in the grocery line tell me I smell good… just sayin’….
Perfect for that painfully stylish friend who already has everything, and just oozes fabulousness. These candles are beautiful, total cult classics and loved by celebs all over.
How perfect is this set for the polish lover or the person who loves to experiment with colour? Butter London makes beautiful polishes that wear well and apply easily and this kit is like the advent calendar that keeps giving all year round!
It’s not secret know my love for Tata Harper skincare, so naturally I had to include it. This kit has so many amazing products from the range to try out, and would make a fabulous gift for someone who is trying to transition to a more organic, natural, cruelty free and chemical free routine. Plus these are all travel friendly, making it great for the wanderlust in your life!
Let’s just have a minute to gaze at this brush porn shall we? These brushes are gorgeously made, with sustainable wood handles that are beveled so they don’t roll off the counter. Clever Charlotte, clever. I’ve currently only got one Charlotte brush, but my wish list is growing…
Each year Nars releases a limited edition palette packed full of their favourite cheek powders, and this year they’ve outdone them by also including a contour/highlight duo. With four blushes, one bronzer and the contouring duo, this is pretty great value and a perfect gift for a makeup collector or enthusiast.
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading Gift Guide Week! In the comments below, let me know what your favourite products from my picks were, and what’s on your wishlist this year!
