Christmas gift guide UK beauty blog stocking fillers
It's that time!  Actually, it was that time quite a few weeks ago but I'm going to go ahead and assume we're somewhat alike and you're only now getting around to your Christmas shopping.  I tend to get ahead of the game with most aspects of the festive season, and yet I never seem to learn when it comes to gift-giving.  Oops!  Fear not though you gorgeous bunch, I'm here to save the day!  Or at least, I'm here to save the day for those in your life you plan on gifting fabulous beauty items to.  I've teamed up with some of my favourite beauty brands to bring you a seasonal edit of spectacular stocking fillers to pick up during this final week before Christmas.  Merry... shopping!

Something to state first of all, is that a brand or celebrity name is unlikely to persuade me to like a product I'd otherwise not enjoy.  And so with that in mind, I can say that I still think Millie Mackintosh's The Highlights gift set makes for a wonderful present!  There are plenty of affordable options from her range that would suit being slid into an embellished stocking this Christmas, however the Pretty in Pink lip and nail lacquer duo is my personal favourite.  The sweet triangular shape is particular festive and the duo has a beautiful feminine feel to it.

The packaging of the Laura Ashley Body Care Trio Timeless Treasures set is a romantic fairytale, with a gold-tone and blush pink colour palette and bow fastened design.  It features a body mist, shower cream and body lotion; making it the ideal gift to the woman in your life - regardless of age.  I'll be wrapping this beauty up as a little extra treat for my mum this year as Laura Ashley has long been one of her favourite brands; from soft furnishings to candles and from knitwear to fragrances!

Charlotte Tilbury's Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask has been on my wishlist for quite sometime now, having seen a handful of my favourite content creators swear by the beauty and skincare guru's sheet masks via Instagram.  I plan on putting this to good use on New Year's Eve before heading out for the evening - roll on gorgeous, dewy skin!  This makes for an ideal stocking filler, thanks to the slim design.  The price may seem a little steep, however keep in mind the mask can be used up to three times - a particularly thoughtful gift for anyone you know who may be travelling a lot in the New Year; they'll need all the hydration they can get their paws on!

A favourite of mine and most likely a soon-to-be-favourite of any future recipient of this gift.  I've adored Charlotte's Magic Cream since receiving the popular release last summer (you can read my glowing review here - pun intended).  Know someone on a mission to improve their skincare regime?  This is the ultimate luxurious gift to surprise someone with on December 25th.  If you're looking to wow a beauty and skincare fanatic, look no further.  The presentation jar alone is set to make your loved one swoon...

L'Occitane have pretty much nailed it as this point when it comes to themed, seasonal ranges.  One of their latest releases?  The Honey Harvest collection.  With a fragrance of melting honey, any of the products from their range make a deliciously sumptuous stocking filler.  Personally, I adore both gifting and receiving body butters and creams and so the L'Occitane Ultra Soft Cream 100ml is a current favourite of mine.  However, the L'Occitane Honey Harvest Hand Cream makes for an equally lovely treat and the price point is very stocking filler-friendly.  

Psst!  Browse the rest of the L'Occitane Honey Harvest range and start ticking people off your Christmas gift list.

Recognise the name?  I've been a hardcore fan of Mii Cosmetics for a few years now and have intermittently raved about the beauty brand over that time here on my blog.  Phew, intense.  But I'm afraid the love is only going to increase thanks to some of their new releases landing on my doorstep a few weeks ago!  I've been playing around with them and have already discovered a new favourite: Mii Cosmetics' Light Loving Intensity Highlighter.  The magic potion comes in two shades: Femme Fatale (shown below) and Hypnotic Heroine.  If you're gifting a beauty-obsessive, the chances are they're also smitten with highlighters and illuminators.  My advice?  Order this gem, and add an Enchanting Eye Colour Shadow to your basket while you're at it!

Spongellé arrived on the UK scene with their buffers complete with built-in body wash.  Magical.  The brand stole my heart with their shimmer-infused version a few years ago and now I have a new suggestion by the brand for you to giftwrap for your loved ones this Christmas: Spongellé's Honey Blossom Hand Cream.  Let's face it, hand cream is a fairly safe option for when it comes to gifting beauty products.  Who doesn't love slathering their hands in gorgeous scented lotions and potions?!

If you're looking to purchase and hand over something brand new and shiny from Spongellé, but wanting something a little more fancy, take a peek at Spongellé's Body Soufflés.  The product shown in this post is the Brilliant Tuberose version and it smells divine.  However, you can also choose from Pearl Blossom and Radiant Amber.  I must admit, there's something very festive about a soufflé, no?

If you've been following along via my Instagram Stories, you'll have seen I was invited to a fabulous fitness event with Erborian a couple of months ago.  A handful of us were invited to 'fight dullness' via an intense, high-paced boxing class in celebration of their new release: Erborian CC Dull Correct.  I've religiously been using Erborian's CC creams on a daily basis since having been introduced to the brand about a year ago.  I had high hopes for the new CC Dull Correct and trust me when I say it does not disappoint.  Know a Korean skincare lover?  Surprise them with this shiny tube of goodness!

... and last but certainly not least, Karen Millen!  The popular brand is better known for their killer outfits and accessories, but did you know they also have a range of beauty products?  Karen Millen's The Travel Edit features a body polish, body lotion and bath soak.  The trio of skincare products are presented in a printed and croc embossed washbag (the gift that keeps on giving, looong after the contents have been used), making it a wonderfully stylish gift for your recipient this festive season!
