It's the 22nd of December leaving only two more shopping days left before the main event, the problem with such a large gift giving occasion is that there is always that one person or gift you forget. Cue the last minute rush and all round panic. For all those who have got to grab a last minute gift and have next to no time, I have gathered together a great assortment of not only budget friendly ideas but products you can grab on your lunch break too. I know, I know I'm far too kind...
If I still had a few gifts left to purchase I'd be heading over to Boots, not only are a whole bunch of their gift sets (and individual products too) part of a 3 for 2 offer but generally speaking they provide something for everyone and every budget. For teens and those who enjoy the brand, Super Dry Beauty have landed in Boots and there is a great deal to choose from - take the Super Dry Beauty Rock Rebel Gift Set (£10) which contains a pretty lip gloss and a chic nail polish. There is also the Superdry Beauty Prep and Paint Nail Polish Set (£6), that not only contains a full sized nail polish but also a nail file - a great little stocking filler.
Most people I know seem to love Soap & Glory products, if you are looking to either stuff a stocking, create a beauty hamper and/or your own bespoke gift, then maybe grab a few Soap & Glory mini products - they'd also come in handy for the frequent flyer. At just £2.50 a product you can afford to pick up a few dinky bottles and brighten someone's day come the 25th of December.You can shop the Soap & Glory mini products via Boots - link.
I recommend the Library of Fragrance colognes fairly frequently, if there is a scent you can imagine then there is a good chance that The Library of Fragrance offer it. My personal favourite has to be Pixie Dust but there is countless fragrances to pick from, including festive scents such as Snow and Eggnog, all of which you can find in Boots for £15 each - link.
What do you get the person who has everything? A lip balm, I mean can anyone really have too many lip balms? I think not. A surprise find has to be the First Base Knockout Lip Balm by Claudia Winkleman for M&S. It is beautifully hydrating, comfortable to wear and all without an obnoxious fragrance. At just £5 (currently £2.50) you need to pick this up, next time you pop into M&S for a sandwich. You can also fine it here - link.
If you do have to brave the high street in the coming days, I wish you good luck!
