My Gift Guide For Her & For Him


This year I've been incredibly organised with my christmas present buying. Maybe it's because, this year christmas seemed to be here in late October or something crazy like that. Well I'm away on holiday (escaping this cold weather) anyway so it's best to get the majority of the presents out of the way early. If you haven't yet done your christmas shopping or are stuck for a ideas for your mum, sister, cousin, brother or whoever it may be. Here are just a few ideas. Mainly beauty, but all super easy choices and would be great gifts this christmas.


HydraQuench Collection Gift Set 


For me this would be great gift for your sister or mum or a female in your life that just loves great quality skincare. Clarins is one of my favourites when it comes to moisturisers and keeping my skin soft and smooth. Clarins has a lot of gift sets to chose from but I love this one as it’s the best of their products that target the skin’s hydration. I’ve been a big fan of the hydraquench cream for a while as my skin is very sensitive and I find this product doesn’t sting my skin at all or leave me with any reaction. It’s quite a creamy product and does it’s job of hydration well without making you greasy… Win win! The set (which comes in their handy little travel pouch) also comes with an intensive serum and a really lovely creamy mask. An easy gift, that’s a sure fire winner, without breaking the bank.


HydraQuench Cream 50 ml

HydraQuench Intensive Serum Bi-Phase 15 ml

HydraQuench Cream-Mask 30 ml 


Grandiôse Christmas Gift Set- Limited edition


The only mascara I ever use is from Lancome. I alternate between their new release products, but usually revert to the hypnose brush as it’s by far my favourite so far. I never find their new releases disappointing so when I saw they had this new Grandiose wide-angle fan effect mascara brush I was very excited. I know my mum is also a big lancome fan and she’s where I got my love for Lancome mascara from, so if you know someone who likes new makeup products I’d 100% recommend trying one of lancomes eye makeup gift sets. This Grandiose mascara is cool because it’s got this swan neck type wand which allows you to be more precise and grab your lashes from the very root. The set also comes with the eye makeup remover that is my holy grail and a creamy crayon khol pencil.

30 ml Bi-Facil

Space NK - NuFace Mini Rose Gold Facial Toner Device & 24-Karat Gold Primer Set



So I’ve also bought this for my mum this Christmas. This is a little bit of a pricier gift, but I’ve looked into this one a lot and it has some glowing reviews and I’ve seen some fantastic demonstrations using this device.

It’s a little massage device really that exercises and tones the face. It uses soft wave microcurrent technology to stimulate your skin. It’s of course not going to be a miracle worker with one go but the results from using this 5 minutes every day are incredible. Even after one go you can see the taughtness of the skin, but to retain this its best to keep using. I know my mums going to love this and I just think the rose gold makes it a little bit more special for xmas. 

Set Includes:

• NuFACE mini Device

• Gel Primer (59ml)

• Gel Primer 24k Gold Complex (59ml)

• Power Adapter


Suffolk Parade -Montpellier Twist Bracelet – Powder Blue and Rose Gold



So I got sent this for a little feature on my blog and it’s safe to say I love it. Obviously, as I wouldn’t endorse anything I don’t love. Although I will be keeping this one for myself, I think it makes a gorgeous little present. The price point is mid-range as a nice gift for your sister, girlfriend or best friend. To me this has Monica Vinader vibes without the price. When it’s on it has the luxurious feel you want from a bracelet, especially with the elegant twist, but it’s so wearable because of the powder blue cord. 

For me the packaging also makes this special. It’s so pretty and your gift recipient will definitely appreciate the effort. There’s lots of different colours for both the cords and also silver or rose gold, for me rose gold was just gorgeous but the silver is very elegant too. 



Happy Socks Christmas Gift Box


I find men that aren’t your boyfriend just hard to buy for in general. It appears men also love socks. Put those together and I’ve figured out Happy Socks is my savour when it comes to Christmas presents. This cute festive box comes with three pairs ‘polka’, ‘gifts’ and ‘ sprinkles’. I’ve got some happy socks myself and the fabric is incredible, such soft combed cotton and they’re also very durable,  so I can safely confirm these are great socks. The festive aspect just adds a little Christmas spirit and makes a cute gift for those hard to buy men in your life.


Clarins Mens Weekend Essentials Gift Set


I’ve been told my many numerous sources that Clarins do the best shaving foam and it is often requested as a gift for Christmases and birthdays. So when I saw this set with all the essentials Clarins feels makes the best skincare kit for men for clear and healthy skin and it includes the smooth shaving foam I knew this was a winner. At £40 its mid-range so will allow you another little gift is this is for your boyfriend or significant other. I know they’ll love it. And again it comes with this super handy travel pouch. 



Clarins Men Super Moisture Balm 50ml

Clarins Men Exfoliating Cleanser 125ml

Clarins Men Anti-Fatigue Eye Serum 5ml

Clarins Men Smooth Shave 50ml 


I hope this gives you guys some last minute inspirations or some affirmations that you’ve done good if you’ve already purchased similar gifts. I love hearing from you all so don’t forget to come and say hi over on @blaisedyer (twitter & instagram).

And remember…tis the season to be jolly!
