Give This! Gifts for the Fashion Forward
Busy crossing names off your gift giving list? Good for you! After all, this is the season of giving. Of course, that also means that someone out there is planning on giving to you as well. Hopefully your loved ones know you well enough that you can avoid those awkward moments of disappointment when you open a gift that is just sort of wrong. Yet, we all have that one particular person who, no matter how well intentioned, always gets it wrong. To help avoid those long pauses wrapped in frozen smiles as you search for a polite way to say thank you, here is a helpful gift list for the beauty and fashion lover to share with the blissfully clueless.
Stuff some stockings with jars of moisturiser from The Body Shop
. Their most popular product happens to be called Body Butter and comes in a wide variety of fragrances. For those who want to condition their skin without heavy scents, try giving Shea Butter or the classic Cocoa Butter. Personally I'd love to receive the 'Fruit & Nut Trio' containing coconut, shea and olive body butter to combat this winter's alligator skin.
Help to create a home spa experience with Elemis Timetospa
. This site can get a bit confusing to the uninformed but not to worry, they offer complete gift collections perfect for any age. I recommend starting with Elemis Superstars, you can give papaya enzyme peels, cellular recovery skin bliss capsules, pro-collagen marine cream, milk baths and other confusing sounding top brand beauty products, so there's something for everyone.
Looking for a name you know and trust that won't leave dust in your purse? For all over allure, soften face and skin with the Wrap Your Own Gift Set from AVON
. Offering trusted products at prices that anybody can afford, there really is no reason to not give a gift that will help some one feel good all year round. I love this Wrap Your Own Gift
collection available for under £10 because it comes with Skin So Soft goods, face masks, hydrating oils, bubble bath, even linen spray that you get to arrange and wrap with loving care. Fashion
a good choice in the chilly winter months,
knitwear has reached new levels of popularity this year. For once, you can give a sweater and no matter how boxy or boring it may seem, it will be officially in style. This is thanks to the unusual mixing of heavy sweaters with decidedly feminine skirts. Debenhams
is a great site to create this look in one stop. They have a large selection of jumpers and cardigans, as well as skirts in many lengths.
If the thought of putting a high fashion outfit together makes your head spin, stick to giving a simple knit dress. Take a look at Mylabel
to find great deals on sweater dresses and give a perfect gift without much thought.
Trying to please a trend watcher? That's a tough one but you have come to the right place for help. I suggest some of the more eclectic makeup options currently available. Have you heard of temporary tattoo lips? Thanks to Violent Lips, Jessie J wore the Union Jack on her lips while performing recently. HQ Hair has a nice selection of this fun product. Also trending this season is the shatter look for nails. You will need to get two different nails colours to pull this look off including special shatter polish. Don't worry HQ Hair
once again has everything you need, there you will find base polish in just about any colour and the best selection of OPI Shatter polish I've found online yet.
