Women's Christmas Gift Guide: Part Three 2019

Tuesday, December 10, 2019
We're quickly approaching Christmas but I still have a few christmas gift guides to help those of you who need to buy gifts for friends and family this year. For more gift ideas, check out my previous womens gift guides, mens gift guide and stocking filler gift ideas posts. Today's post is my third, but not my final, women's gift guide of the year featuring a range of gift ideas from heavenly scented haircare, natural skincare and a unique subscription service to a beautiful 2020 diary.

*Lee Stafford Ultimate Hair Mask Set (£10)
Let's start with the cute haircare gift sets on offer from Lee Stafford this year, both of which would be great gifts for friends, younger cousins and as secret Santa gifts! The first gift idea is a set of hair masks from Lee Stafford that include the coconut, cactus crush, hair growth, choco locks and argan oil hair masks so there's something for everyone. If you want to gift a beauty set this year but want to choose some thing a little more unique, check out this wonderful and inexpensive gift set.
*Lee Stafford Coco Loco Set (£14)
The second and equally as cute gift set from Lee Stafford is the Coco Loco set which includes the full sized Coco Loco shampoo and conditioner, along with a handy travel wash bag. Lee Stafford is such a nostalgic brand for me and I have loved their products for years, especially their shampoo and conditioners. I cannot recommend the 'poker straight' and 'here come the curls' ranges as well as their 'keep it clean' dry shampoo, the latter I've already reviewed on my blog. If you like to gift beautifully presented but practical beauty gifts then look no further than the gift sets from Lee Stafford which are available online and in Boots.
*Bubble T Shower Gel Subscription (£5 per month) 
Another beautifully designed gift is the new Bubble T shower gel subscription service which, for £5 per month, delivers to your gift recipient two shower gels per month straight to their door. The fragrances are exclusive each month and my personal favourites so far have to include the vanilla chai tea and the pink lemonade scents. I love the packaging of the products as well as the subscription box idea and the heavenly scents. You can enjoy a free starter pack (while only paying the £1 postage charge) so you can try two of their shower gels for yourself!
*Ark Skincare Hero Collection (£38)
I've already raved about Ark Skincare products on my blog for months so I can't think of a better brand for the perfect festive vegan and cruelty free skincare sets than Ark Skincare. Some of my favourite products of theirs includes the gorgeous Age Defend Replenishing Moisturiser, Triple Action Exfoliator and the Skin Protector SPF 30 Primer. They offer a wide range of skincare gifts for all ages and all budgets this christmas so you're bound to find a stocking filler or gift for yourself or someone special.
The Hero Collection contains three of their best selling products including the pre-cleanse and makeup remover, hydrating beauty mist and the primer I mentioned previously. I think this gift set is ideal as either an introduction to the brand, a great travel sized skincare gift set or as a beginners skincare set for those who aren't sure which skincare products or brands to try. They have a great selection of other gift sets too such as the more luxe Age Defend Sleep Collection and the Luxury Skin Perfectors Collection to their inexpensive mini skincare products and mini duos which would make ideal stocking fillers for beauty and skincare lovers.
*Boxclever Press 2020 Perfect Year A5 Diary 
I think beauty, skincare and pampering gifts are perfect, practical and safe gifts to give to friends and family but another great gift for this time of the year is a cute diary, calendar or stationery essentials and the gorgeous pieces on Boxclever Press are to die for! If you didn't already know, I'm a stationery lover and hoarder so I want pretty much everything on their website! I'm one of those people who has to have a diary, notebooks and to do lists to stay organised and productive so if you also know a fellow stationery lover, definitely check out the gorgeously designed products from Boxclever Press.
I love the design, from the pen holder, tabs, the layout of the diary to the shades throughout, to do list pages and the size, which is great as both a desk diary and for a handbag, if it's as large as mine! Keeping a dairy and notes is one of the easiest ways to stay organised and having a cute diary is even better.

The 'Perfect Year' diary for 2020 I was very kindly sent can be purchased as an A5 size as well as the A6 size and part of a couple of cute stationery gift sets. The 'Perfect Year' range also includes a family calendar and the diary is available in a divine blush pink shade (that looks like my perfect diary, if I'm honest). You can currently purchase the A5 diary at a reduced price and you'll also receive a set of free sticky notes but hurry as the offer ends soon!
*Gaia Sleep Set (£40)
Last but not least for today's gift guide (my next one will be a luxury gift guide so stay tuned) includes a selection of incredibly beautiful gifts from the brand, Gaia. I've only recently discovered this brand but I've not only instantly fallen in love with their divine packaging but also their products, particularly the sleep spray, body butter and moisturiser, all of which I have been using non-stop since I received them! I don't think I've instantly fallen in love with a brand this quickly for a long time and I cannot recommend their beautiful products and gorgeous gift sets enough.
The first gift set I wanted to recommend and review is the Sleep Collection which not only comes beautifully packaged but it contains three lovely products, including the very effective sleep mist, body butter and the sleep balm, along with a wash bag. I utterly adore the packaging for all of their products but I think that my favourite has to be a three way tie between the cute cracker, the skincare trio tray and this cute wash bag! I think this set would be a thoughtful gift for new mums, those with stressful jobs or people like me who struggle to fall asleep - the sleep mist has definitely been helping!
*Gaia Lip Balm Christmas Cracker (£10)
Next up is the most adorable Christmas cracker I've ever seen! I love the idea of beauty christmas crackers as traditional crackers are always disappointing and include items no-one wants. This little crackers comes with a cute lip balm inside but there's also an option that includes what I'm sure is a heavenly scented bath oil. I think this cracker, or the bath oil version, will make ideal beauty stocking fillers or as luxe christmas crackers for friends and family on Christmas Day.
*Gaia Facial Range Trio (£83)
Last but definitely not least is probably my favourite set of the three, although it is a very close call as all of them are utterly beautiful and smell heavenly. This skincare trio not only comes with three lovely skincare essentials including a cleansing balm, exfoliator and moisturiser (the latter is definitely my favourite so far) but it also comes with a wooden stand for the products which is something I haven't seen before. I adore skincare, especially when you add in a heavenly scent, natural ingredients and beautiful packaging but also include a wooden stand to keep them looking pretty and organised and I'm in love!
As I've mentioned twice already, the moisturiser is my favourite product of the three so far and the one I've used the most as not only does it smell lovely and look cute on the little tray but it leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth and comfortable which is all I want during the colder winter months for my skin. This set is on the pricey side but christmas is a time for giving and being generous! This gift set, and any of the others mentioned in today's gift guide, would make lovely gifts for all friends and family this year! There will be a short video to accompany today's gift guide coming very soon so stay tuned.
