My week of gift guides is finally coming to an end on the blog. Whilst I prepare to have a talk through my top pics on my Instagram and Youtube this weekend, I'm bringing you the final instalment this evening; the women's guide of...everything. 

Skincare

The Dr Paw Paw Sleeping Beauty set is perfect for those who just need a good nights sleep. With a lip scrub, lip mask and eye mask, at around £16 you cannot go wrong. I think your secret Santa present just got sorted! Buy it here.

The Paul and Joe silky hand cream is a perfect little present for that someone you just don't know what to buy for. At £11 it's super affordable and water repelling too, so doesn't wash off even, when you wash you hands. Fabulous. Buy it here.

Beautiful When You Smile is the gift set I didn't know existed, or that I needed. The set contains a mouthwash, tooth paste and lip balm, all flavoured, and besides the fact that the gift of oral hygiene isn't something to be laughed at, the products all look blooming cute on the bathroom shelf. Buy it here.

Sanctuary Spa continue to produce some fabulous gift sets each year. The brand was actually the first I bought for my mum the year I got my debit card, as I always saw Sanctuary Spa as being a little luxury I could actually afford at the time. This year they've given us a few stars too. The Moment's that Last set sees a body spray, body lotion and body wash, all with a fragrances that lasts and products that have actually won awards. I've also included the Luxe Shower Trio and my personal favourite, the Slumber Box, a sleep wellness set I'm saving for myself this year. Buy them here.

Fragrance

Perfumes are a staple present in my view and one from Marc Jacobs is always a hit in my house. The MJ Perfect intense is a new one for me. It has scents of jasmine, daffodil and pink pepper and makes for a fabulous wintery fragrance. Buy it here.

Makeup

The Charlotte Tilbury Luxury palette of pearls is a firm favourite in my makeup bag. It features four if the most gorgeous nude shades and honestly, C Tilbs makes a fine present for anyone under the tree for sure. Another shadow palette favourite of mine is the Mesmerizing Moment palette by Dear Dhalia. It features a bunch of pinks and sparkly nudes, and is just perfect for any NYE parties coming the lucky recipients way. Buy it here.

If you've read some of my other gift guides from this year, you'll know that I picked up a few products in the Cosmetics Company Store, an outlet for beauty products. One such product is this set of Clinique Chubby Sticks at around £15. There is a bunch of nudes and darker colours included, and I love a chubby stick for all the moisturising power along with the fabulous colour pay off they give too. 

Whilst not strictly makeup, I had to show you this absolute bargain of a gift from Spectrum. This beauty hamper is currently in the sale for under £70 with over £200 worth of products. There's a mascara, primer and mist. There's make up remover pads, a makeup bag, eye mask, comb, scrunchie, storage pot, brush soap and a brush towel. Oh and of course a set of 10 brushes. For £70 I'm astonished at what you get for the price and it truly is the gift that keeps on giving. Get it here before it sells out!

Jewellery

Last but by no means least is my love, Pandora. I spoke about my obsession with the brand in my stocking filler guide earlier in the week, and it reigns true here too. I chose this bracelet to showcase because it's a bit of a hit in my household. Pandora are brilliant at fine jewellery, show stopping pieces and personal charms. I'm gifted a charm each year to add to my ever growing bracelet and I just adore everything Pandora bring out. Buy the bracelet here.

If, like me, you have a minimal list of gift ideas this year, then look no further than this post. The past two years may need a little making up for, so splashing out on that special someone this Christmas may just be what they need. 

Fragrance
The Gucci Flora perfume is fast becoming a classic. The bottle is truly stunning and once empty, will sit perfectly on my pink and gold themed shelves. The scent is of course floral, but sweet too with White Gardenia and notes of Jasmine Grandiflorum. A stunning gift I'd happily receive for years to come. Click here to buy.

Hair
Is there ever a more iconic gift than a new pair of GHDs? This year GHD have released a numbr of limited edition tools, and I have my hands on the Platinum + smart styler! It comes with a stunning emerald velvet vanity case too and of course uses the Ultra-zone™ technology too. A winner in everyone's books. Buy here.

Makeup and Skincare
First on my face list is this sweet Estee Lauder set. With minis of creams, mascaras and serums, these sets are worth every penny. The brand isn't known for cheap products, so any skincare lover would adore one of the sets, each with it's own pouch and variation of contents. I can't find these online at the moment, but picked two of the sets up at The Cosmetics Company Store for reference. 

BECCA Glow on the Go. When I saw these two on the shelf I just could not resist. Each set comes with a liquid and a powder highlighter, for whatever your preference may be. BECCA is such a staple brand and I can't wait to gift these this year. Click here to buy.

Clinique ID hydrating jelly. The range of jellies allows the receiver to pick and choose what works best for them, a mini personalisation for your hydrating gel if you will. For the winter months, hydration is key to fresh, soft and relaxed skin, and something like this just isn't something I'd think of buying for myself. I've picked up two of the products and may just have to keep one in my back pocket for the inevitable January post-Christmas skin problems... Click here to buy.

The Skin Alchemists Massage Oil Treatment Candle is a new-in product, and one I've adored the concept of since I first came across it. It's a two in one. A candle with unrefined cocoa and shea butters to send you into a well deserved sleep, and the wax? It's a massage oil, that heats to the perfect temperature for an intensive skin treatment. Imagine a long soak after a cold winter's walk, lighting the candle whilst you hop into bed and finishing the night with a glorious treatment on your hands or feet? The perfect gift for someone who needs a little pamper this season. Click here to buy.

Whist we're on the topic of relaxation, the Olverum Restful Sleep Pillow Mist is the perfect gift for under the tree, or in a stocking, for someone who just needs a good night's rest. Like me. I need it. It's vegan for starers, and has the essential oils of bergamot, amyris and lavender to send you off to sleep, and wake you up feeling refreshed like never before. Click here to buy.

Stila have fast come onto my radar over the past few months, and even more so with their Christmas gift sets. Their Holiday Bounty set features eye and brow products, and comes in a fabulous little bag (with an actual strap) and I adore the pink toned products in the Cherished Kitten Eye set. I'm sending the former over to a friend to say thank you for her love this year, and I'm very much on the verge of picking myself up another one whilst the stocks last... Click here to buy.

Would it truly be a gift guide without mentioning my one true love, Charlotte Tilbury? Since buying my first lipstick from the brand a couple of years ago, I without fail receive a gift set for Christmas, and this year (fingers crossed!) will be no exception. The Push Up & Recovery Kit features CT's eye serum and of course, the Pillow Talk Push Up Lashes mascara, of which I'm currently using a mini version of every day at the minute! A fabulous little gift for any CT fan. Click here to buy.

Last but by no means least, is the gift of my dreams. The PMD Blushing Beauty Gift Set is exclusive to Harrods and the features the PMD Clean and PMD Personal Microderm PRO. The former uses SonicGlowTM technology to break down dirt, far more than a clean with a cloth could ever do. It boosts collagen production, prevents blackheads and firms and tones too. The PMD Personal Microderm PRO exfoliates dead skin cells, leaves you with a fabulously radiant complexion and reduces wrinkles. I cannot explain how excited I was when this landed on my door step. It's completely luxury, and is truly an essential for my skin now. Click here to buy.

Fashion
If you don't gift or receive slippers at Christmas, you're doing it wrong. This year why not gift some that will last for years too? I have the Rose version of the Just Sheepskin Daisy sliders and honestly, I haven't taken them off this week. The slippers are sheepskin lined, are memory foam and are the softest slippers I've ever owned. A hit present for sure. Click here to buy.

So that concludes my luxury guide for 2021. What's on your shopping list for someone special?

Let's chat mens. The hardest part of my Christmas shopping is trying to get any sort of answer to asking what my dad, brother and boyfriend actually want. The answer is usually "nothing" and I proceed to trail the internet for things they'll actually like. I've put together this top picks guide to make it a little easier on us all, so let's get started.

Let's start with fragrances. I'm a bit at a loss this year as, since I caught Covid in December 2020, I haven't regained my taste or smell. So I've chosen these nose-blind as such, in the hopes they may smell nice. But who knows?! First up is the classic Davidoff Cool Water set. I bought this in TK Maxx back in the summer. I knew I'd struggle with men's items, so grabbed it whilst I saw it! It's a fabulous size with a shower gel too! TK Maxx often have a great range of fragrance sets so it's worth checking your local store each week for sure! 

Next is a couple of scents I've heard many good things about: Hugo Boss The Scent, and Gucci Guilty. My boyfriend is a Hugo Boss fragrance fan, so that'll be going under his tree this year, and I mean, you can't go wrong with Gucci can you? Click here to buy The Scent. and here for Guilty.

Skincare is something I'm passionate about, especially for men. Purely because my boyfriend can use a bar of soap and have the smoothest skin, so I'm pushing the Clinique this year, because imagine his skin after a proper pamper?? The Great Skin set includes cleansers and creams and is fabulous to get a bloke into looking after his skin this Christmas. 

Finally, and something I've been very excited about, Inspirited Dry Gin. Alongside the cute little personalised bottle sticker, the entire experience is personalised too. When you click on the website, you pick a pre-made gin or can create your own gin from a huge range of ingredients! It's such a fabulous idea and I choose a lemon flavoured one for one fruit obsessed recipient! Click here to buy.

We've all been given stocking fillers that are.. pretty rubbish. It's 2021, so let's put the £1 mirrors down, and pick up something they'll actually want this Christmas.

Skincare:
My family are famous for shoving a cheap lip balm in my stocking each year. This year I've introduced them to the brand Waken, and their Luscious Lips gift set. The set includes three lip balms, with 100% natural flavours of lemon and mint, strawberry and mint, and peppermint. The balms are all vegan too, so the perfect little additional to any stocking this year! Click here to buy.

The first of the bauble gifts. The Olverum Bath oil is a little bit of luxury hanging from your tree. I'm hanging mine until Christmas eve for a big bath before bed, but of course, the bauble makes the perfect stocking filler gift this year. The oil has calming, stress relieving and decongesting essential oils, something we can all use a bit of at this time of year. You're recommended 5ml per bath too, meaning even the stocking sized bottle won't run out too soon! I expect this to be a best seller this year, and if you love the brand, stay tuned for my luxury guide later in the week! Click here to buy.

Makeup:
It's no secret how much I love the Spectrum brand. I've used their brushes for years, so when I saw that they did gift sets, I was straight on the site! The Marie Disney Giftable 6 Piece Set offers 6 of their gorgeous brushes for eyes, base, cheeks and brows! I've also included the Frida Kahlo Sponge Set in the guide because at £11.99 for two sponges, it's a fabulous gift for secret Santas too! Spectrum Cosmetics are vegan and cruelty free, making the set perfect for new makeup users, or to add to someone's collection, like mine. *Hint Hint*. Click here to buy.

Charlotte Tilbury:
If ever there was a brand I squeal at each time I receive something from, it's Charlotte Tilbury. I adore the sets each year and they're perfect for those looking to try the brand for the first time. I'll pop a few of the sets in my guides coming later this week, so stay tuned for those! Click here to buy.

Stila:
Another fabulous brand offering gift sets for the festive season! The Triple Play Set offers an eye liner and two of the most gorgeous liquid lipsticks! A timeless set and one I'd be more than happy to receive on Christmas day! Click here to buy.

Lipsticks: 
There's nothing that screams "small present they actually want" than a lipstick. From Charlotte Tilbury to Honest Beauty and my new favourite lip treatment from Paul & Joe, that keeps your lips plump and soft in this cold weather, there are ample options to gift this year. Click here to buy.

Jewellery:
I'd say 99% of my jewellery collection is from Pandora now, and I'm not mad about it. Pandora is the ultimate in Christmas gifting, and with a bunch of new ranges this year, the brand truly offers something for every budget. From cheap ad cheerful £25 earrings to the most gorgeous Brilliance collection on the upper price point scale. I've kitted out my entire family and friend's with Pandora this year, topping up their charm bracelets with something special for each one, and giving my favourite queens a tiara ring each. A classic gift for all. Click here to buy.

Hair care:
Slip: another bauble I can't wait to put on the tree. This ball of goodness contains the most gorgeous scrunchies made from 100% pure mulberry silk, meaning kinkless hair and minimising damage. A must half for hair lovers all round. Click here to buy.

This year's stocking fillers are possibly, my favourite ever. What are you filling those stockings with this year?
