Christmas: Women's Gift Guide
It's finally December! I can't wait for christmas so to carry on the festive cheer, I have my third christmas gift guide and this one is all about gifts for her - whether that is your mum, wife, sister, aunties or friends. I was very kindly sent the products featured by brands that I know and love as well as a few new products. So grab a cup of tea, this post is a long one!

*Crabtree and Evelyn Country Florals Hand Therapy Trio Tin (£12.50, worth £15): Crabtree and Evelyn have such amazing christmas sets, I included some of their products in my mens gift guide. Their hand creams are one of their more famous and poplar products and these scent sound gorgeous. I think this set would be great for mums, aunties and grandmas, although I'd love it too as you can never have too much hand cream!

*Bluffers Chocolate Guide Book (£6.99): I have also already featured the Bluffers guides in my mens gift guide and my stocking fillers posts as I think they are fantastic gifts that are so reasonably priced and there is a topic for everyone.

*Wild Olive Luxury Spa Tuberose & Jasmine Set (£16.95): I have tried Wild Olive products previously and I love their candles! This set contains bath salts, soap and a candle so it would be perfect for anyone who needs a pamper. All of their product are handmade in England and they use natural ingredients. The Tuberose and Jasmine set smells amazing and it is packaged to beautifully.

*Botanicals Beautiful Hands Anti-Ageing Serum (£13.95): Again, another brand that I have tried and that I love. I have tried so many hand creams but this is the first hand serum; it is such a hydrating oil and the I love the pipette dispenser. It would make a lovely stocking filler or part of a pamper hamper and as with the Wild Olive brand, everything is natural and cruelty free. You can get the hand serum in the lovely Hand & Feet Christmas Pamper Box which would be a perfect gift.

*Gemporia Sterling Silver Pendant Necklace (£27, worth £67.99): I don't wear that much jewellery but I do love necklaces and this one is gorgeous. It is simple and understated as well as being very reasonably priced but it is sparkle, elegant and it is perfect with formal and causal outfits. It sits well, it feels comfortable to wear and I think mums, sisters and friends would love it!

*Yves Rocher Sumptuous Colour Eyeshadow Quad (£13.50, sale): If you have been following my blog for a while then you will know how much I love Yves Rocher products, from the fragrance and haircare to bodycare and makeup. I chose the quad in 06 Brun Incandescent which is a lovely everyday quad - you can see swatches and a close up in the video below.

*Yves Rocher Apple Delight EDT (£5, 20ml): One thing that I always notice with Yves Rocher products is how cheap they are and there are always offers on! This fragrance is part of their new  range and it smells heavenly; to me it smells like a toffee apple scent with musky perfume notes. It would make a fantastic stocking filler, as would their shower gels.

*Bloom and Wild Flowers: As well as candles, there is nothing more welcoming and homely than flowers; they make such a difference to a room and let's be honest, who doesn't love to receive flowers. The flowers came so beautifully packaged and the box can fit through a letterbox so you don't have to worry about being in. I think the three months of flower set (£50) would be perfect for mums or grandmas as they will receive three gorgeous bouquets so it's the gift that keeps on giving!

*BKR Glass Water Bottle (£25, 500ml): I think this unique and adorable glass and silicone water bottle would make a great gift for gym goers! It comes in a range of colours and I have the adorably named 'cupcake' shade. The bottle is is BPA free which is fantastic, it will fit in most cup holders and in my case it will be perfect on my desk or on the go as it is 500ml so I know exactly how much I'm drinking and it will make me drink more as it's so cute!

*Let It Snow Tee (£10): I love christmas jumpers, but they aren't for everyone so this cute christmas tee would be a great festive gift. I would personally wear it as a longline pyjama top and it is so adorable and it is also well priced in my opinion.

Kiko Cosmetics: This gorgeous palette from their new christmas range is in place of all the Kiko products I've tried as I think they are fantastic, from the nail polish and eyeshadows to lipsticks and gift sets - they would make fantastic and great value gifts for any makeup lover.

Spectrum Brushes: I am a makeup brush hoarder, I have so many and I think these from Spectrum are the most adorable brushes I own and they are amazing quality as well as being cruelty free! I luckily won a couple of sets this year and I was kindly sent a brush too and I have been using them non-stop!

Now onto the video, as with the others, it isn't the best quality because of the damn english weather and lack of natural light but I hope it isn't too bad! I've included some extra gift ideas in the video from Arran Aromatics, Molton Brown, Rifle Paper Co, Roger and Gallet, Breo and Boots.

Lastly, if you are still doing your christmas shopping then check out My Derma Center as if you spend over £45 then you will receive a fantastic deluxe gift with purchase including fantastic sample sizes of products from Roger and Gallet, La Roche Posay, SkinCeuticals and Vichy. So you can buy lovely presents for everyone and receive a gift for yourself!
