The ultimate Christmas Gift Guide for her.
Well it’s already that time of year again. A batch of mulled wine is currently brewing in my kitchen and Home Alone is on repeat. I have been busy searching the internet for my personal Christmas wish list to bring you the ultimate Christmas gift guide for her. Hopefully this list will inspire you and there is something here that the ladies in your life will just love.
Be sure to start your shopping in plenty of time to ensure that your items arrive in time for the big day. With so many wonderful options out there – shopping for the ladies in your life from your mum, aunts, sisters or friends can be hard. Here are some of my personal favourites to add to your own Christmas wish list.
Now is the perfect time of year to treat the girls in your life to the beauty products they have been eyeing up all year but just couldn’t bring themselves to splash out on. Chistmas is the only time of year that I will splash out on makeup and fancy creams (I’m usually saving my pennies for travel), so this is the time that I allow myself a treat. I carefully research the products that I buy because I know they will do me all year so here is my round up of the best beauty buys and Christmas must haves.
I have been a fan of Dublin Herbalists for a while. I previously bought their rejeuvenating face cream, hydrating face serum and everyday cleansing gel. If you follow me on instagram you will see that I am forever singing their praises. I made a pact with myself last January to take better care of my skin and I fully credit these products for my transformation. The best thing is that all of their products are natural and never, ever tested on animals. That means no parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate or other hidden ingredients.
This year I am treating myself to the Intensive Gel Face Mask and the Enriching Hand Cream.
This Intensive Face Mask in gel form sinks into your skin, moisturising and plumping, enhancing the appearance of its natural volume. The beneficial properties of Glycerol, Whu Zhu and Arctic Cranberry Seed Extracts are brought together for luminous and radiant looking skin. Packed with antioxidants, and rich in minerals this mask refreshes tired and dull complexions for immediate brightening and softening. When activated by water, this revolutionary mask is washed away to reveal silky, soft and rehydrated skin. It is also suitable for vegans.
This Enriching Hand Cream provides intense, lasting moisturisation to your hands, fingers and nails. Shea Nut Butter and Vitamin E soften and nourish the skin, while White Poppy Seed, Flaxseed, Calendula and Rice Bran Oils firm, protect and restore. With a silky, velvety texture, this powerful blend is scented with purifying Lemongrass and soothing Bergamot Essential Oils. Also suitable for Vegans.
These 12 all-new shades include of-the-moment soft mattes and sizzling metallics, ranging from creamy ivory and shimmering rose gold to the most intense black cherry. The Naked palettes always have serious staying power and don’t flake or fade. Each shade is made from a mind-blowing formula that gives it a velvety texture, rich color and blendability. Adorned with a row of metallic cherries, the crimson compact includes a full-size mirror and double-sided brush—ready for precision application on one end and seamless blending on the other. Shop your palette here.
Nicola Shevlin, a nurse with specialized training in skin healing and renewal, saw first-hand how people were becoming increasingly mindful about what they put on their skin. Passionate about seeking organic alternatives, she began formulating her own organic skincare range in 2013. By exploring which natural and organic ingredients best promoted skin health and wellbeing, Nicola committed to creating products that were both powerful and pure.
Since getting very ill with Lyme disease I have become very aware of what I put on my skin. Most people are unaware of the many toxins that they put on their skin every day. This year I am treating myself to the Replenishing Night Cream and revolutionary Jade Roller which comes complimentary with every premium Gift Set.
This uniquely formulated organic face moisturiser works to repair and rejuvenate the skin throughout the night. A blend of organic rosehip, macadamia and avocado oils provide a natural source of omegas which deliver deep and lasting hydration. Anti-oxidants vitamin E and vitamin C, as well as active ingredients lupine peptides and hyaluronic acid, deliver anti-ageing benefits by nourishing and restoring skin cells. Ría Organics face cream enhances skin elasticity, targets fine lines and signs of fatigue; your skin will feel fresher, brighter and irresistibly smooth. You can shop here.
Another Irish brand that I am shopping at this year is Jo Browne. Jo was a reflexologist with a vast knowledge about essential oils and the health benefits that they have. She felt that there was a gap in the market for something new, gentle and convenient in fragrance. She chose to follow her dream and use her passion to create sensual, stimulating solid fragrances. From hard work, experience and trial and error Jo Browne Natural Solid perfume was created.
In an effort to become more environmentally aware, I have been meaning to get myself a Bamboo toothbrush. So this year for Christmas I am treating myself to a Bamboo toothbrush by Jo Browne and a Solid Perfume in Floral Note which also comes in Eco friendly packaging. This perfume is an elegant floral composition where sparkling bergamot and grapefruit rest upon a full blooming heart of wild jasmine, tuberose, lilac and orange blossom twisted with lemongrass. A Sandalwood and myrrh form the base with a whisper of green violet leaf.

There are so many options when it comes to fashion. Depending on your budget you can shop from luxurious dresses, casual sweaters, sexy nightwear to cosy hats, scarves or socks. Here is what is going on my list this year
