Christmas Gift Guide: Under £25/€25

Christmas Gift Guide 2019, Gifts under £25

Have you entered my beauty bundle giveaway here?

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Well, nearly! Welcome to the first of my Christmas gift guides! Over the next five days, I am going to share lots of gift ideas with you for a variety of budgets so I am hoping that there will be something for all beauty lovers. Each gift guide will contain a mixture of products that I have bought myself (as gifts or you know, to me, from me!) and products that were kindly sent to me. If a product was sent to me, it will be marked with a * for transparency. I never feature products that I wouldn't be happy to spend my own money on. In the coming weeks, I will be combining some of the gifts in a bundle for a giveaway that will only be open to those who engage with my posts, both here on the blog and on Instagram. Rather than focus on categories of products, I am devising my gift guides by budget and today, we're talking all things under £25/25. I definitely wouldn't call this a stocking filler guide as I think these gifts are more than that and its the full budget for many people so I am hoping you find some inspiration.

Sol De Janeiro Carnaval Shimmer Set: This is a brilliant set for those who have wanted to try the famous Bum Bum cream for a while. (Review here) It contains a mini bum bum cream and a mini candle in the same delectable scent as the cream - think pistachio, caramel, vanilla. I have wanted a candle in this scent for so long so if you know anyone who has also mentioned that, they would love to find this gift under the tree! 

Farsali Skin Goals Set Review

Farsali Skin Goals Set: This set contains four mini serums, which can be used alone or layered together. They all have different aims including blurring the appearance of pores, hydrating the skin and reducing inflammation. Each contains 5ml of product, which should be enough for you to decide whether to purchase the full size. 

REN Beauty Sleep Booster Set Review

REN Beauty Sleep Booster Set: The gift of a good night's sleep - who wouldn't want that?! I swear by pillow sprays to help me sleep and this set is great because not only does it contain a full size of their & Now To Sleep Pillow Spray (full review with mouse story here) but it also contains a 15ml tube of cleansing balm and a 15ml night cream. If you know someone who has difficulty getting a full night's sleep, this would be a great gift! 

L'Occitane Hugs & Kisses Duo review

L'Occitane Hugs & Kisses Duo*: One of my favourite brands to both give and receive at Christmas is L'Occitane. Apart from the fact that their festive packaging tops all others, the products feel luxurious without a huge price tag and they bring some luxury into everyday life. This duo contains a full size lip balm and hand cream - both of which are really nourishing and perfect for winter. They also have a wide variety of other gifts in this price bracket, which you can check out here.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir Mini Bauble Review

Caudalie Beauty Elixir Mini Mist Bauble*: The cult Beauty Elixir is now available in mini form - perfect for those who travel a lot or like to have a mist on their desk or in their handbag.  It can be used to set makeup, refresh skin throughout the day or as part of a skincare routine. A great product at a brilliant price.

Caudalie Luxury Vine Body Set Review

Caudalie Luxury Vine Body Set*: This set is seriously impressive for the price tag. It contains a full size body butter and a full size hand cream. The body butter sinks it quickly and leaves skin nourished for hours! I adore the hand cream as it isn't at all greasy yet really moisturises the hands - perfect for this time of year especially now the temperature has dropped! Housed it a gorgeous box, this is a real treat without breaking the bank.

Charlotte Tilbury Mini Charms Hot Lips Set Review

Charlotte Tilbury Mini Charms Hot Lips Set*: I love that Charlotte Tilbury does these sets every year because her lipsticks are pricey but this gives the opportunity to try three shades for less than the price of one full size lipstick. Of course, they are mini in size but that means they are perfect for even the smallest handbags on nights out. The packaging is the same as the new Hot Lips 2 collection and the little box they are housed in combines the three types of packaging of the new lipsticks. The formula is exactly the same as the full size so this trio is definitely worth buying. The shades are Amazing Amal, JK Magic and Viva La Vergara. 

Buckley London Necklace & Earrings Jewellery Set

Buckley London Necklace & Earrings Jewellery Set*: For anyone who travels regularly or will be travelling for Christmas, it's a good idea to remember that you will find great value in Duty Free! Even if you aren't travelling but know someone who is, you can use the Reserve & Collect option so you can still avail of the great bargains there are to be had. This necklace and earring duo is great value and the quality is excellent with the products looking more expensive than they actually are. I love that they are housed in a bauble so if wrapping isn't your forté, you can just gift it this way.

Emma Hardie Daily Essentials Collection Review
Emma Hardie Daily Essentials Collection*: Another really great value set is this cracker from Emma Hardie (again, convenient packaging if you aren't great at wrapping!). It contains three 15ml products and a cleansing cloth (one of the best quality and longest lasting cloths I've used). Of course, it contains their best selling Moringa Cleansing balm as well as a moisturiser and SPF (which doubles as a primer).  This trio will be coming to Rome with me in a few weeks. If someone has wanted to try this brand for a while, 15ml products will give them enough indication if they are suited to their skin.

Clean Reserve Travel Spray Warm Cotton Review

Clean Reserve Travel Spray Warm Cotton*: This travel spray is ideal for popping in your handbag or to use when travelling with hand luggage only. It is a very fresh, clean scent - like fresh out of the dryer, laundered fluffy towels. It also has some warmth when it dries down and it feels like a comforting hug in a perfume! 

I would love to hear your thoughts. Have any of these caught your eye? Any that you'd like to find under the tree?
