Skincare kits will always go down well, especially with mums and fellow beauty addicts. It's a good time to stock up on old favourites and as they often contain a few extras it's nice to try something new too. This year I've been particularly impressed by Radical and with a moisturiser, serum and eye cream it's got her whole beauty routine covered.
Cleansing brushes are still so popular and Mary Kay skinvigorate gets my vote this year. Compared to cleansing by hand it removes far more make up and I like that it's battery operated and waterproof so no need to constantly charge or worry about electricity in the bathroom. If she likes her beauty reads it's also worth adding in Mary Kay's book which makes for such an inspiring read.
You can always rely on L'occitane to do some great gift sets but if you'd rather pick and mix your own present then take a look at this gorgeous limited edition collaboration with Pierre Hermes. Inspired by his macaroons, there's a choice of 2 scents Jasmine neroli and Grapefruit rhubarb, with a variety of products including a shower gel, body lotion and perfume. There's also a really lovely hand cream trio which is bound to be popular this Christmas.
Braun silk epil 5 epilator (currently on sale for £49.99)
For a girlfriend or sister it's worth asking if she has any expensive electricals on her Christmas wishlist. Hair straightener are always a popular option but if she's wanting a new epilator then I would definitely recommend taking a look at Braun. Their epilators are always so well designed with a range of different accessories and speeds. It also come with a smart light and massage system, ideal if she's new to the world of epilating.
Michael Kors gold collection (from £33.50)
Perfumes are another great gift idea and this year the Michael Kors gold collection sounds particularly gorgeous. There's white luminous gold with notes of pear, jasmine and amber, 24k brilliant gold which contains mandarin, florals and woods and finally Rose radiant gold which sounds perfect for winter with it's notes of spice, florals and musk. A particularly good gift if she's fashion conscious and loves her MK handbags and watches.
Finally saving the best till last. Every year a huge Soap and Glory gift set goes on sale for half price in Boots and this year they've collaborated with fashion designer Philip Colbert for this eyecatching bag. Inside you'll find 9 full sized items, including favourites such as clean on me, the righteous butter and hand food. A huge bargain as always and definitely worth buying either as a present or as a pre-Christmas treat to yourself.
