Last minute Christmas gift guide - £30 and over

Is it just me or does time just disappear this time of year? In a blink of an eye we're now just 4 days away from Christmas and me being my usual organized self I've yet to buy the bulk of my Christmas presents. Luckily from speaking to friends and colleagues it seems that I'm not alone and if you've yet to complete your shopping too then I hope you'll find this last minute Christmas gift guide use. At the time of writing you can still order all of these gifts online in time for Christmas and they should be available in stores nationwide too:

Shay and blue are a relatively new brand, but with gourmand fragrances such as Salt caramel and Almond cucumber it's not surprising that they've become ever more popular. There are plenty of gift sets to choose from, but as a Christmas present I like the idea of giving a sampler set so the lucky recipient can try them all then decide on her own favourite.

Beauty advent calendars have been so popular this year however for something more Christmas Day appropriate I'd recommend this Elemis 12 days of beauty gift set. There's still the excitement of opening a new door every day and with generous samples of bestsellers such as Pro collagen cleansing balm and Papaya enzyme peel this would be perfect for any Elemis fan. 

For mums and older sisters you can't go wrong with L'occitane and my top pick this year has to be their new Arlesienne fragrance gift set. Inside the gift box you'll find an Arlesienne Eau de toilette, shower cream, body milk and luxury hand cream. What I like about Arlesienne is that unlike most other winter fragrances it's actually very floral and light. Perfect for adding a touch of sophistication and it can be worn well into Spring and Summer.

For something a little bit different what about this Origins ginger pleasures gift set? Despite the name it's actually quite a sweet scent, but with the warmth and spice that you'd expect from ginger. With a scented candle and a roll on perfume this would be ideal as a pre party pamper kit or for anyone who likes the little luxuries in life.

Finally for the ultimate beauty gift you can't go wrong with a pair of GHDs. Their straighteners are one of the best, however if she already owns a pair then take a look at their new Curve collection. Shown above is the GHD classic curl tong however there are 3 other wands, all of which are designed to give easy long lasting curls and waves. Plus if you buy one now it'll come with a limited edition rose gold travel bag.

How are you getting on with your Christmas preparations? Are you also a last minute shopper?
