Well hello there, I’m still alive! I’m currently having a very typical full-on December as in gift-shopping, battling flues, hardcore house renovating and some winter blues. On top of that we started seriously planning on the wedding but I’ll talk more about that later. If you’re having a fully packed December like I have you might have to do some very last minute gift-shopping, something I’m not unfamiliar with. This year I’m pretty proud of myself because I got my presents early and it’s a lot more relaxing than all that last-minute stress. Today I’m showing you some picks that might help you.
The Weleda Christmas Crackers set is something I definitely recommend. You get a set of 6 crackers and each cracker contains two minis of the Weleda line. These are bright and cheerful and a perfect stocking filler. It’s also one of those set you can split up and give to several people. I love little treats like this and I really do recommend this set!
If you want to give something fancy without having to break the bank consider a Chanel nailpolish. This beauty is Rouge Rubis and is part of the holiday collection. You can never go wrong with a classic shade like this and I’m sure that most ladies will love this! Wrap a big bow around it and you’ll have a little pretty gift!
Another set that I truly adore is the Caudalie Hand Cream Trio. It’s really cute with a beautiful packaging. Everyone appreciates some handcream during the colder months and if they look like this they will love it even more. The formula of the trio is all the same but each version has a different scent. These are perfect to carry around in your handbag.
I love lipsticks. I love getting them but I also love gifting them. It’s tricky though because it’s something more personal. If you want to give a lipstick you can consider Dior Rouge in Grège 1947. It’s a very natural shade that goes with a lot of skintones. It’s not too beige, brown or yellow but has a nice peachy tone. The formula is really great too and it’s one of those classics that can’t go wrong.
Something for the younger crowd: Mac x Rihanna. If you have a girlfriend, sister, cousin,… they will go wild when they receive something like this (if they are a fan ofcourse). This is the ‘Love, Rihanna‘ bronzing powder and besides looking pretty awesome it’s also a really nice bronzing powder.
I know I’ve picked quite some make-up pieces and it might be risky but I really do love giving make-up. If I had some more girl friends I’d go totally nuts but ironically I’m pretty much alone with my make-up addiction here, lol! To all those people out there having to do last-minute shopping: good luck! Things can go pretty crazy those last days and I honestly dread them, haha. Have a good one guys!
