Can you believe that Christmas is just around the corner?! This year is going far too quick and I hate that we are almost in December already! Not to mention the fact that I have been dreading my Christmas shopping and putting it off at all costs. Fortunately for me however, I have now finished up my Christmas shopping and I thought I would share with you some affordable beauty gifts for your loved ones that won’t break the bank. I love a good gift guide, but I do feel like a lot of them are not achievable in the sense that not everyone can afford to spend between £50-100 per person, especially if you have a large family to buy for. I wanted to create a gift guide that is a bit more achievable for the average consumer and only give you ideas that go up to around £20, ideally as affordable as possible! Let’s get into it….
Kat Von D Beauty has some amazing deals this year, starting with the Kat Von D ‘Bow N Arrow’ Makeup Gift Set. This set retails for £14.50 and comes with the well loved Bow N Arrow Liquid lipstick and a mini Tattoo Liner too! I love that you get two of her cult products in one cute little set which would be great for any makeup lover that wants to try out some Kat Von D makeup!
Next we have the Nyx Butter Gloss Trio which I actually found in B&M for just £4.99! The Nyx butter glosses are really nice and comfortable to wear, and they also have the intense butter glosses in the same trio if you are wanting something with a little more punch. I think that this is a great gift and the price is amazing for what you are getting! I have bought about 5 of these to give out at Christmas!
The Becca highlighters are by far one of the most talked about and hyped up highlighters on the market, and I am definitely a firm believer that they are one of the best! The Becca Lit From Within Kit can be found on SpaceNK and retails for only £20! For that price you get a mini Opal highlight and a Backlight Priming Filter which is another very loved product from Becca. I think that that is an amazing deal as separately these products are worth around £35-40 each, and I for sure would be a very happy girl if this popped up under my tree!
I know that I myself cannot always afford those luxury brands or that expensive makeup and I think that anything on the more luxury side can make such a special gift to that special someone. This next gift set is the Marc Jacobs ‘The Sex Kitten’ Cracker which can be found at John Lewis for the price of £13! In this set you get a mini Le Marc Lip Creme, very boujie! You also get a mini Velvet Noir Mascara too! I think that this is a great deal and again, very affordable especially for Marc Jacobs! I’m impressed…
I know not everyone is into their makeup as much as they are into their skin care. The Nuxe Travel Kit is a great little option for just £13.50 as it contains a range of products from hand cream, cleansers, face cream, dry oils and shower oils. I have tried a couple of Nuxe products in the past and loved them so this could be a really nice gift to someone who needs a bit of pampering!
Clinique is one of those brands that is known for their fresh and natural take on beauty and this little gift set is something that even I would love to try! The Clinique ‘Holiday Heroes’ Gift Set consists of their well loved ‘take the day off’ balm and their high impact mascara! Again, for £13.50 I really don’t think that you can go wrong!
It’s not often that I get a chance to do my nails, but I have always used Barry M nail varnishes! I should probably branch out a little more for one, but also I really enjoy their colour range and their different collections that they have out. This Barry M Out Of This World Gift Set is actually quite out of this world as it is currently on offer now for £7 in House Of Frazer! That is crazy considering you are getting 3 nail polishes and a Cosmic Lights palette. I think that this is the one gift set I am most excited about! Amazing value!
My final gift set might not even be a gift set, but I thought it would be a great gift for anyone who is into their hair care and likes a bargain! The Aussie Mini Miracles Set comes with a shampoo, conditioner and hair treatment all for just £4.99 in Boots. If you are on a tight budget then this could be a really enjoyable gift as Aussie make really good hair products!
I hope this was helpful in one way or another, and I hope that you enjoyed this gift guide! I have never done a gift guide before so feel free to let me know of any other deals I may be missing out on, but until next time….
