The mulled wine is bubbling, the wood fire is crackling and Love Actually is on repeat. The festive season is in full swing and we’ve rounded up a selection of gifts for everyone on your list in our Christmas Gift Guide series. We kicked off proceedings with our favourites for the men and women in your life, but now we’re talking mini treasures and beauty trinkets that make perfect stocking fillers:
GREAT FOR: Winter warriors. This portable cold weather must-have is packed with 100% natural purified lanolin to heal and nourish a multitude of concerns, from flaky lips and dry patches to dehydrated cuticles and even sunburn.
GREAT FOR: Everyone! My newly-found appreciation for glass nail files has been fully documented here. In short; their ability to shape the nail and seal the edges to prevent future splitting is unrivalled. I urge you to try one if you haven’t!
GREAT FOR: Those who could do with a little (aroma)therapy. This adorable ‘little bell’ is a great way to introduce anyone to this luxurious brand – we guarantee they’ll thank you! Pink grapefruit, rosemary and juniper berry blend to create this invigorating bath and shower oil – plus, the gorgeous packaging can be hung up on the tree!
GREAT FOR: Easy-going types. This gentle, yet effective lotion does what it says on the tin; it melts away make-up and unclogs pores for smooth, clear skin. The organic formula has soothing apple and orange water so it’s great for sensitive skin.
GREAT FOR: Lippy ladies. This mini duo not only looks great, but the moisturising formulas are foolproof to apply and leave a sheer, buildable tint to lips. These neutral pinks are spot on ‘your lips but better’ shades.
GREAT FOR: Body-conscious babes. Beta-carotene – the nutrient that turns carrots orange – is a fab antioxidant to protect while rich shea butter quenches the driest of skin. This nourishing tub has found a new home on several Birchbox staffers dressing tables.
GREAT FOR: Chocoholics. There needs to be something a little naughty to counteract those clementines, right? This mini collection holds a mix of their bestsellers including Almond, Ginger, 70% Dark and – my favourite(!)– Butterscotch.
GREAT FOR: Anyone after a fab festive polish. This classic, suits-all red screams Christmas. The streak-free brush is easy to use, the formula stays put and it looks great on both fingers and toes. Santa would approve…
