Here are my gift ideas under €50, for whoever the woman in your life may be.
Soap & Glory - Loved & Glossed Gift Set €20
When I saw this I almost bought it for myself! This fab little gift set from Soap & Glory comes with 3 shades of their Sexy Mother Pukka lip gloss stick. These are so lovely to use, smell divine as most soap & glory products do and would make for a great stocking filler. The shades that come in the set are Nudiest, Fuschia-ristic and Plum Jam. I have Nudiest and Fuschia-ristic, hence me not buying it for myself but the Plum Jam has now been added to my wish-list, its the perfect shade for this time of year. You can find this set in Boots, where they are doing 3 for 2 on most of their Christmas Gifs.
Liz Earle Beautiful Skin Duo €33.50
Wow wow and wow...thats all I have to say about these two products! The Hot Cloth Cleanse & Polish by Liz Earle has won numerous beauty awards and having used it, its easy to see why. This cleanser feels so luxurious to use, leaves your skin super soft and fresh, I have repurchased this many times. The Duo comes with a 100ml pump of the Cleanse & Polish and 200ml bottle of the Instant Boost Skin Tonic which is equally as gorgeous to use. I normally buy mine from their website but Liz Earle have just opened their first counter in Ireland at Boots in Liffey Vally so you could save on the P&P if you buy it from there.
Lancome La Vie Est Belle €42.30
This fragrance is extremely girly, very pretty, sweet and elegant. It reminds me a lot of Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolph which has been my signature scent since I was 17 so no surprises that I love this. If the person your buying it for isn't into sweet scent they will NOT like this. It normally retails in and around €55 but I managed to find it online from Debenhams for €42.30. They also send you out a tester of the perfume so you can smell it and if it doesn't suit you can send it back, I think that is a brilliant idea when your buying someone a fragrance.
Juice Cube €29.99
This could be a life saver! We all know how bad our iPhone batteries are. Personally, I make it to 6pm and then Im in the red. Juice Cube has the power to charge your phone from dead to fully charged, just like you had it plugged into the wall. A great little gadget that would make its way into any girls bag in case of emergencies. You can buy these in Ireland from the Carphone Warehouse for €29.99
OPI Take Ten Mini Mani Set €38.41
Love love love this gift! Take Ten comes with 10 mini really wearable shades of OPI nail polish. This is perfect for a someone who is always painting their nails! Available online here.
YSL Babydoll Mascara Christmas Set €28.35
Although I love high street makeup brands for mascara, I do really like a couple of the brand named ones too, YSL being one of them. I think this little set would make a lovely Christmas gift. It comes with the full size Babydoll Mascara and a mini eye makeup remover. I found it with 10% off online here.
Urban Decay Naked Basics Pallet €26
Urban decay shadows are my absolute favorite, the quality, the pigment and the colour range just makes them overall great shadows. As much as I love to experiment with shimmer and sparkly shades I always find my daytime look consists of very matt shades and you always need them for toning down that smokey eye. I think this would be a great gift for someone who loves makeup, they most likely will have either the Naked 1 or Naked 2 pallet, if not both. This one is a little different as all the shades are neutral matt everyday shades. I don't think you can go wrong with this one, I would be so happy to open this on Christmas morning! Available here with 10% off online
Alex & Ani Bracelets starting from €26
Pandoras out and Alex & Ani are in! I have fallen in love with these bracelets, although I don't have any I do think they are gorgeous. I foresee these eco-friendly, positive energy products becoming BIG in Ireland. They believe that every individual has a positive message to share with the world and have incorporated positive symbolism into their pieces. Check out their really cute designs here. The only place I have seen them is Arnotts in Dublin, definitely pay a visit to check them out!
TGI BEd Head Party Girl Gift Set €40.37
As it says in the tin...or in this case the box, this is the essentials for every girls night out. The set comes with After Party smoothing cream, Headrush shine spray and Masterpiece hairspray. All of these products are amazing quality and smell great! A lovely gift for a girl who loves to tame that mane! Available online from asos here.
Real Techniques Sam's Picks Limited Edition €34.99
These are my favorite brushes, better than any others I have used. An asset to any girls makeup collection, these brilliant quality brushes are great value at €34.99. What I love most about this set is that all the brushes have been thoughtfully put together and as a result could be regularly used on a daily bases. This particular set will be available from next week on Cloud10Beauty.
And thats is guys and gals...they are my Christmas gift ideas under €50. Watch out next week for my Christmas Gift Guide for Her over €50 and I will also be doing a Christmas Gift Guide for him!
