Luxury-ish Gift Guide

1. Glamglow Gift Sexy Anti-Ageing Set - £58.99 (HQ Hair are currently offering 25% off)
I picked up both this set and the blue Dazzling Hydration Set from HQ Hair's Black Friday sale. I just couldn't resist them as I always love Glamglow products and the ThirstyMud mask especially is a staple in my bathroom. As far as I'm aware you can't easily find the cleansers in the UK, so it's really nice that travel sized versions are included in the set. I haven't tried either of the cleansers yet, but I'm really excited to! Also how adorable is the packaging? So cute, you wouldn't even need to wrap it.

2. Kérastase Luxury Advent Calendar - £43.70 (Currently over 40% off)
I know it's a bit weird to include an advent calendar on a Christmas Gift guide, since advent will be over by then, but it's a fantastic time to take advantage of the extra discounts! I think it would be such a nice idea to repackage all the items into a cute little hamper or decorative box. I actually had the Kérastase advent calendar this year and I really love the selection of products inside (yes, I may have opened all 24 days by day 4) it would be the perfect gift for any hair care junkie!

3. A Midnight Wonderland 'Lauren' Handbag - £36.00
Is it cheating to include one of my own products in this? I couldn't help it! This bag is literally one of the most luxurious feeling bags that I've ever had the pleasure of owning. That's one of the things that sucks about online shopping, you can't reach through your screen and feel the quality of things! Trust me when I say that this feels a lot more expensive than its £36 price tag. I really love how it's such a unique colour too, but not so unique that it wouldn't go with most outfits. I'm seriously OBSESSED with it!

4. Henri Bendel West 57th Coin Purse - $68 (£44.81-ish)
I might have gotten so over excited when I discovered that Henri Bendel had started shipping internationally (& are currently offering FREE UK delivery) that I just had to place an order. This was one of the things I purchased (along with the matching business card holder) and I'm thrilled with it. It's quite small for an every day purse, but it would be perfect if the recipient you had in mind is the type of person who only carries a handful of cards and a little bit of cash. The one I have is actually a metallic dark silver colour, but the pink is equally as pretty.

5. Swarovski Crystalline Lady Ballpoint Pen - £24.00
I feel like this is one of those little luxuries that you would just never buy yourself but would absolutely love to receive. I was lucky enough to receive one from my auntie & uncle a few Christmases ago and I still use it every single day! It writes like an absolute dream and you can purchase ink refills from Swarovski so you never have to worry about it running out.

6. Custom Birthstone Ring - £37.92
Not only is this ring incredibly beautiful, but I absolutely love how you can add personalisation and sentiment to it by choosing what selection of birthstones to have included. It would be such a lovely idea to gift to someone with the birthstones of their nearest and dearest. I can definitely see myself ordering one in the near future. Unfortunately, I don't think this would be delivered in time for Christmas, but some things are worth waiting for!

I'm SO excited for Christmas this year! I've already finished my shopping and wrapped all the presents, but after compiling this I'm tempted to go and order more! Have you finished your shopping yet?
