Make Up & Beauty

Christmas is just over a month away and I know a lot of you like to start doing your shopping early. This year I have done something different and spent hours creating an ultimate gift guide for you all. I’ve put it into 9 different sections and these include beauty, stationary, home-ware, premium denim, purses and jewellery, shoes, accessories and food. There is literally something here for every single person! I have listed 90 items all together and I would be happy to receive any one of these as a gift, so I think a lot of other people would too! I absolutely love doing gifts at Christmas time and I love shopping around for inspiration as well. A lot of shops at the moment have their own Christmas gift guides and sections, like Shopbop, ASOS and Urban Outfitters (click names to see them) for both men and women and I found a lot of my ideas there. Each of my sections are labelled and they have a description as well, so happy Christmas shopping to all of you! It’s super easy to purchase any items you like here, just click the corresponding numbers in the pictures to the numbers just below each image. You might want to right click them and open them in a new tab though so you don’t go off the guide.

Above we have beauty products, which so many girls love getting at Christmas! I have chosen bath and shower creams, lipsticks, eyeliners and mascara, body butters, eye shadows and more! These are really girly options and I think each of them make great gifts! You can opt for something smaller and cheap as a littler stocking filler or choose a gift set, either way, I don’t think you can go wrong!

Stationary & Books

For those of you who have friends that are a little more creative, I put in a stationary and books section. I often receive cool pens and paints etc on Christmas as I love art, but I think getting books is also a great thing! Reading books or note books, they are always handy! I also included iPhone cases here as they are arty and I think they look really pretty!

Home-ware

I think home-ware is definitely a safe idea for Christmas gifts. A lot of people do use them as a fail safe for when they couldn’t think of anything else, but I think they make great decorations as well as gifts. Receiving candles is always nice, especially if they are scented, but getting fun things like mugs, picture frames, towels, storage boxes etc is always really useful. I find that sometimes the most useful gifts make the best ones! The receiver will always have a purpose for them!

Premium Denim

This isn’t always a section for everyone, but I included it mainly because it’s my thing. I know a lot of my readers are premium denim addicts too and have friends that are as well, so if you have the budget, what makes a better present than premium denim? I’ve found loads of great options here, from more classic colours to prints and even to leather. I’ve received designer jeans for Christmas a couple of times when everyone chipped in to get me a pair, so if you have a denim lover amongst your friends and family, this is a great idea.

Purses & Jewellery

Purses and jewellery you can never go wrong with. So many men give their ladies jewellery for occasions, especially at Christmas, so I have selected a few statement pieces here which are fun and bold, perfect for the holiday season! I also chose a few purses as they make great gifts as well. A lot of them are Christmas inspired with the glitter and metallic colouring, but I think they can easily work for other occasions too!

Boots & Shoes

Boots and shoes are always a great option for Christmas! Who wouldn’t want to receive a gorgeous pair of heels on Christmas morning? I know I would! There are some great options above and you can choose from women’s wedges, slippers, flats, ankle boots and heels! There is something here for everyone and I have a varied price range too!

Clothing Accessories

Accessories are always needed for the winter months! Over here in England, you can’t go out in the months of December without having gloves, hats and scarves, so why not give someone a practical and adorable gift? The burgundy hat and the leather gloves are also really stylish! I added watches in here too because I know they also make great presents! These are all pretty ones and I would love to receive all three of these, wouldn’t you?

Jumpers, Shirts & Jackets

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9

Much like I said above, it’s always cold so wrapping up warm is a necessity. I’ve chosen a couple of coats and jumpers/sweaters here which are great for warmth! The jumpers are all Christmas themed too with reindeer’s, presents and gingerbread men, so they would make a fun gift for someone. I know they can be deemed a little bit ‘Bridget Jones’, but I think they are quirky! I also added some pretty shirts in here too, they can be worn to the holiday parties!

Food & Snacks

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

Finally we have food! Everyone tends to receive food at Christmas time and it always makes a great stocking filler, party essential or just as a snack while watching your Christmas movies. I’ve selected chocolates, biscuits and sweeties here as I know so many people love getting these and eating them on Christmas day, and of course for weeks after when there is so much left over! Ha ha!

I don’t want to leave the guys out either, so there are some great options around! You can check out this holiday gift guide to see what’s available. I know mugs, jumpers, jeans, toys and gadgets always make great Christmas gifts! Some of the food options above will also be a good choice, what guy doesn’t love food at Christmas?!

– So this sums up my Christmas Gift Guide and I hope you liked it! Every one of these products or items is available to purchase by clicking the corresponding number under each image. Happy shopping! I would also love to know what you think of the guide! It took me somewhere around 8 hours to create it all.
