Christmas is the perfect time of the year to give the gift of beauty. In fact it is the only time of the year that we can ask people to shower us with lavish gift sets that you would probably not indulge yourself with during the year. With the rise of Kris Kringle over the years, it is also makes one of the easiest generic gifts to buy someone because, as a rule of thumb, most women like to be pampered; most women want to smell and look beautiful and if it can be done at someone else’s expense then all the better.
So with all that in mind, I have chosen some key sets and beauty essentials for both men and women that will guarantee you some brownie points! First off, I just love this vibrant nail set from Nails Inc., the primary colours are so playful and will see you right through the next season. Even better, its costs only €22, which means it could be a stocking filler, or an actually wanted office kris kringle pressie. If, we are talking about beauty we have to mention the staple of every girl’s beauty cupboard and that is the essential hair straightener, I am recommending this version by Remington, from personal experience. I have extremely curly hair and in fact my curls are so untamed, in order for me to wear it down I need to artificially create soft curls with my hair straightener, and I have tried just about every single brand on the market including all the GHDs etc, and the Remington for me wins hands down. It has a thermostat monitor so you can regulate your heat which goes as high as 235degrees which means you can style your hair in record time. Did I mention that it is on sale at the moment for only €57, normal retail price is €119, so it might even be worth updating your old model and buying yourself a Christmas pressie!
For the skin care lover, this set from Garnier, is ideal as it has everything you need from day cream, night cream and eye cream for only €39. If you are looking for something for your teenage daughter, niece or cousin, then this hand and nail care set is perfect , the packaging is quirky and playful and you don’t have a spend a fortune to impress them as it only costs €22. Alternatively, another great stocking filler that will raise your cool status are these Calvin Klein lip gloss collection for only €14! And last but not least for the man in your life, this ‘Freshen up’ set from L’oreal is part of the amazing and bountiful Price drop products that Littlewoods Ireland are releasing every day in the lead up to Christmas and it is reduced from €22 to only €8, which is just too good to resist.
As I mentioned Littlewoods Ireland is on a bargain hunt, slashing prices and offering amazing promotions each day until the last day for shopping on December 18th. So, if you have the bulk of your shopping still left to do and worrying about when you are going to get it done, worry not, as you still have plenty of time, plenty of offers, plenty of bargains and plenty of choices to choose from, all delivered straight to your door or office, with still some time left for mulled wine and mince pies. (which is probably the only things we don’t sell)
And since this is my last post of 2013, I wanted to take the opportunity to say thank you for sharing with me all the great things that I had to write about in 2013, and having just been at the Spring Summer 2014 press preview a few nights ago, I can tell you that 2014 promises to be even bigger and brighter with amazing styles on offer. But, until then, all I have to say is have a fantastic Christmas, wow the crowd, enjoy your gifts and most of all be happy.
