Fashion and beauty Christmas gift guide for 2018
I have had so much fun putting this guide together. And, I have been lucky enough to have been sent many of these products to try out for my self before recommending to you. I do hope you enjoy the guide!
Where would we be at Christmas without slippers to gift? Ah but these are no ordinary slippers. Have you heard of Baabuk – they are a Swiss footwear brand that produces wool sneakers, slippers, and boots. All their footwear all unisex, making them great gifts for anyone. Look at these gorgeous slippers they come in a variety of lovely shades (including violet and dark pink.)
They are designed in Switzerland and handmade in Nepal using traditional methods and are made from natural wool from New Zealand and 100% natural crepe rubber. So comfy, cosy warm and stylish these are slippers you will want to wear out! 69 EUR
The perfect planner
Every fashion lover has to have a stylish journal to leave lounging on the coffee table or to take out and about with them- no scruffy notebook will do. This Blink daily planner is both uber stylish and supremely efficient. It gives you chance to write down the objective of your day, contains your daily doodle neatly and enables you to plot each hour. No more slips of paper everywhere or writing on the back of your hand this is the planner for someone who likes to totally stay on top of things and look good whilst doing so. The Yes Studio Monday Blink Planner can be found at Prezzybox.
I have to say I received a copy for review and have used this every single day since I think it is fab. I just love having a main objective for the day and loads of room for my to-do list. This planner works for me!
The cutest hat
I am loving the Kirby Cable Hat by Crew Clothing it so cute and looks so cuddly. Smart or Casual it is the perfect bobble hat and it is machine washable which is always a plus! It comes in a variety of colours too, Crew Clothing have some lovely winter knits too so do have a peek at their store! £22
Odylique Make up
I recently reviewed some Odylique beauty products which were so effective and so lovely I was really excited to sample and review their makeup. something ( anything) form Odylique would make a super Christmas gift for a beauty lover. Their products are handmade in their workshop, natural, vegan and largely organic and they are top quality!
I have to recommend their rose lip liner. These are the first lip pencils certified to Soil Association and Fairtrade standards. It is suitable for vegetarians too. It gave s me a love line, easy to use and is creamy too. Moisturising and conditioning with vitamin-rich 100% organic plant oils, butter, fruit and flower extracts. It comes in brown too.
I would also suggest an organic mineral lipstick from Odylique. These natural lipsticks are also fairtrade and soil association certified and they are really moisturising. They have plant oils and butters including jojoba and Fairtrade shea to provide a moisturising vitamin-boost to your lips. I tried Marshmallow pink and found it light silky and very smooth to put on and it lasted really well.
Odylique mascara is another lovely gift idea.
Suitable for lens wearers or people with sensitive eyes these mascaras are organic and natural. They are fast drying mascaras that don’t clump and they contain conditioning plant extracts like aloe vera, calendula and sea buckthorn fruit to nurture your lashes. No synthetic chemicals at all! It gives a light coating and a very natural look

This beautiful faux leather Pink Bow manicure set by Ted Baker is packed with rose gold tools for taking care of your hands it includes nail clippers, nail scissors, tweezers, cuticle pusher and nail file. It is pretty and practical and such a good looking gift. It makes you want to get it out and do your nails even if they are already done!

Hi have had a billion compliments on my new boots..they really are pretty fabulous and they would make the best gift to shoe lover this Christmas time. They are from Swanky Swans and they are super comfy.
These Gru fur boots are £19.99 and are just the cutest, wearable with everything and all day long they are faux suede and faux fur. Love love love them, my fave boots this year!
Swanky Swan sells a whole range of really fab scarves. These range from winter scarves to silk scarves to fur scarves and more. A really varied and great value range, I picked out 2 for this gift list but there were just SO many I would have like to include.
