Buying gift for people is one of my favourite things to do, I struggle on the lead up to Christmas not to tell everyone what I’ve already bought them. I usually get my older family members the same kind of present each year, my mam some wine and her favourite Hotel Chocolate cherries, my dad and step-dad some sort of alcohol and a gift set. However, when it comes to my friends, I really struggle. 2 of them are vegans so it’s fun to get them some crazy expensive vegan mayo or something like that.
My friend Alex and I are similar in the things we like but every now and then I’ll buy something I absolutely love, and she’ll scrunch her face up in disgust followed by the comment “wouldn’t dare”. When it comes to her I second guess everything now, the safest bet is makeup, but her collection is growing, and I feel it’s a bit of boring gift now. Her birthday happens to be boxing day (her 18th this year) so she gets double the presents. It’s only the beginning on November and I’m already pulling my hair out what I should get her for the big day. Below I’ve listed my 2018 best Christmas presents for your bestie.
In my opinion Cloud Nine straighteners come close to beating GHD’s. This set Features exclusive Kinder Heat Technology and Signature Mineral Infused Ceramic plates. For an extra £20 you can personalise it with a monogram making it the perfect personalised gift to spoil a beauty lover.
Okay, so I know I said that I thought buying friends makeup was getting a bit boring but I actually love this gift set. For £26 it’s a steal. This concealer is something I’ve used in the past and its perfect for hiding dark circles. It also comes with a mini bottle of blur primer which I’ve actual;y never used before but I’ve heard wonders.Also, the box is so cute, who wouldn’t want to receive this gift.
Retailing at £210, this scarf is a bit on the expensive side. However, it’s so pretty isn’t it?It’s a cashmere scarf meaning that it will keep you warm in the winter yet not be too warm if you just want to use it for accessorizing purposes in the summer month. The colour scheme of the scarf is classic Burberry and will compliment many outfits.
Subscription box gifts are the gift that keep on giving. You can literally get a subscription boxes with almost anything inside this includes things such as steaks, make up, vegan products and alcohol. One of my friends loved bacon and so a few years ago I got her an annual subscription of bacon, it was truly amazing.My dad is a big beer drinking, so he was gifted a beer subscription box which had different weird brand and flavors in, they are great for being able to try new things.
