Mii Cosmetics Nourishing Lip Sheens c/o - I think we've established by now I'm a huge supporter of Mii Cosmetics and pretty much every product they've ever released. Well, on the 1st October they launched two new lip sheens named Care and Nurture. The moisturising lip products are aptly named, as £2 from each purchase is donated to Future Dreams, a charity 'working towards a future free of breast cancer'. Both colours are beautifully feminine, flattering when worn either alone or layered over lipstick and are each packed with passion fruit oil, pistachio butter and organic shea butter. Good for the recipient and even better for charity - fab!
Psst! Check out my giveaway to win a gorgeous Mii Cosmetics Beauty Gift Set worth £30!
Butlers Chocolate Assortment - Well, it wouldn't be a Christmas Gift Guide without the inclusion of chocolate, right?! There are hundreds of assortment boxes to select from around this time of year, however taking into consideration the three ever important factors - taste, cost and appearance - Butlers' gold gift-wrapped selection box ranks pretty high on my list. (available at Waitrose)
Merino Cashmere Blend Scarf - Living in the UK means scarves have been regularly featured in my Christmas wishlists over the years and as a result, I've often ended up purchasing scarves for others too. I've found that to avoid personal taste of the recipient clashing with their gift, dark colours are best kept to and in 'neutral' patterns and textures such as tartan checks or ribbed surfaces. The scarf shown in this gift guide is by The Edinburgh Woollen Mill and although it's no longer available for purchase, many other options are... and on sale!
CaseApp Green Marble iPhone 6 Case c/o - One of the easiest and yet personal gift ideas around is undoubtedly creating a phone/laptop case. Swedish website CaseApp accommodate both skins and cases, either uniquely created or selected from their catalogue of pre-made designs. Text and images can also be added to creations, though their plain marble prints alone are enough to make anyone swoon - especially as they're available in a vast range of colours including green (as shown), light blue, white/gold, black and more.

Amara Ladurée Macarons Keyring* - There's little point in me attempting to hide my undying love for this keyring; from the presentation box to the miniature Eiffel Tower and gold Ladurée disc resting next to the stacked macarons, everything about the gift screams 'Christmas'! Six versions of the colourful keyring are available at Amara, including this luxurious Liquorice option, as well as the super pretty mint shade, though one thing is for certain - they're each identifiable Ladurée creations with bundles of Parisian charm! Talk about dreamy...
Whether you're yet to write a Christmas shopping list or have got all of your gifts stacked neatly in your wardrobe, I hope this Gift Guide has been of some help! I'm currently working on a Men's Christmas Gift Guide as well, so you can stop fretting over what to purchase your partner/brother/colleague, as I'll be sharing it on A Glass Of Ice come 4th December!
