Christmas Gift Guide | For Her

Love, Catherine | Christmas Gift Guide

I think I'm a bit late on parade this year with my Christmas Gift Guide, even though it's not even December yet, but don't fear as I actually have not one but three coming your way! For this one I've compiled together a bunch of beautiful products I personally own, that would be perfect for any girly girl to receive!

Love, Catherine | Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick, Kim K.W
Charlotte Tilbury |  Lipstick

When you think of luxury makeup with beautiful, gift worthy packaging, who comes to mind instantly? Charlotte Tilbury, no brainer! Her rose gold lipsticks with the classic, vintage style tube, are so stunning and make for a really special gift. The lipsticks themselves have a beautiful, long wearing but comfortable formula, and the shade I've got here is the ever popular  Kim K.W, a gorgeous nude (full review  here!) I've also got my eye on  Liv It Up, which looks like the prettiest, soft, rosey pink shade!

Charbonnel et Walker |  Truffles

The one thing that the majority of women (or anyone for that matter) have in common is a love for chocolate! If you want to give a little extra than the standard gold chocolate coins, then Charbonnel et Walker is the way to go. They have an array of amazing truffles packaged in gorgeous, luxe boxes. I love the  Pink Marc de Champagne Truffles which you can also get in a cute  heart shaped box if you're all about presentation (you can't fail with heart shaped things though c'mon). But I'm also desperate to try the  Sea Salt Caramel Truffles which just sound incredible.

Love, Catherine | Pretty You London, Perdita Pink Slippers
Pretty You London |  Slippers*

I had to include a pair of cosy slippers, because it seems to be a rule of Christmas gift buying to receive either socks or slippers each year, and I'm so not complaining! I've fallen in love with the brand Pretty You London since receiving the beautiful  Olivia White pair back in Spring. They are so pretty but so comfortable at the same time and I've had loads of wear out of them. This  Perdita Pink pair are so cute with the little moon and star applique and they've got the softest, fleecy lining! They have chase your dreams delicately written across the front and even have cute little pom poms on the back! Adorable.

Love, Catherine | Anastasia Beverly Hills, Modern Renaissance Palette
Anastasia Beverly Hills |  Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette

One for the beauty lover, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette contains 14 beautiful eyeshadows ranging from soft neutrals to deep berries. Why this palette over the rest? Because the quality is flippin' incredible. The shadows are so buttery soft, intensely pigmented and blend out immaculately. As it's super pricey at £41, it can be quite a do I don't I purchase for someone splurging on themselves, which is why it would make for such a great gift to receive. (Full review  here.)

Whilst we're also on the subject of eyeshadow palettes, you also can't go wrong with any that Too Faced offer, which you probably guessed was coming! My favourite is the  Chocolate Bon Bons, a deliciously scented palette with beautiful shades ranging from pinks to mauves to chocolatey browns and it's my most worn palette of 2016, (oh look another plug.. full review  here.) Their  Natural Eyes palette is also a classic, with nine perfect neutral tones that every girl needs in her collection.

Love, Catherine | Valentino Donna, Perfume
Valentino |  Donna Perfume*

This Valentino perfume was top of my wishlist last year! I adore the weighty, quilted glass bottle which looks so elegant and luxe with the blush pink fragrance inside. It has the loveliest, powdery rose and vanilla scent which is floral yet sultry and basically just beautiful. I've worn it so much throughout 2016!

Love, Catherine | Diptyque Candle
Diptyque |  Candle

I'm not gonna lie, I do love a good candle, especially during Winter time! The Diptyque candles have such a luxe feel about them, they smell amazing and have a long burn time so will last a while which is the great thing about buying pricier candles. I love the glass jar which you could re-use after it's finished as a makeup brush holder! This one is a mini  Tubereuse, but I'm dying to get my hands on  Roses or  Vanille. They also have a  set of six mini candles which could make for a really great gift if you're indecisive about which fragrance to pick!

Love, Catherine | Mococo Clogau, Silver Bow Necklace
Clogau |  Silver Bow Necklace*

My last choice is this beautiful Silver Bow Necklace from the Welsh jewellery brand Clogau. I was lucky to receive it as a gift from the luxury jewellery stockists Mococo and I've literally worn it so much since, I love it! It's such a girly, delicate piece and just looks lovely paired with pretty much everything! You can check out my full review with lots more pictures of the necklace  here.

    1. I'm obsessed with the shade Vermeer (I think) in the ABH palette, it's the perfect icy champagne pink and is sooo pretty applied to the lid with a bit of MAC Fix +! xo
