Blogmas Day 18: Last Minute Christmas Gifts

Ok. So Christmas is in a week. Yes...a week. Can you believe it! Are you low key stressed or have you already got it all under control? Either way I have a list of some fantastic, last minute gifts that will be perfect for anyone you've forgotten about!

The Body Shop Peppermint Pedicure Set / $35

The perfect Christmas gift for sports lovers, or anyone who deserves to put their feet up, treat them to our cooling and caring Peppermint Pedicure Set. Whether it's for mum, your sister or even your partner, this gift set is perfect. It contains a Peppermint Intensive Cooling Foot Rescue, Peppermint Reviving Pumice Foot Scrub and a File A Foot.

Clarins Holiday Sweet Lips Collection / $55

This is a set I actually want to pick up for myself. This set comes with three Instant Light Lip Comfort Oils, the Honey Glam, Raspberry and Red Berry. I love these lip oils so much, they are my holy grail for dry lips. Plus they are $33 each, so this set is amazing value for 

Kiehl's Holiday Limited Edition Creme De Corp* / $76

If you have never tried Creme De Corp, you are seriously missing out. It is one of the most amazing body moisturisers I have ever used for my eternally dry skin. It is perfect for sensitive skin too. It smells amazing and will keep your skin hydrated for days (yes days, well maybe 48 hours). The limited edition, Mickey Mouse packaging is so beautiful too and despite the price tag, the bottle is huge so it will last you a very long time.
Peppermint Grove Patchouli and Bergamot Pamper Pack / $49.95

You have someone who doesn't really like make up or skincare? But still want to pamper them? Then this set is perfect! Inside you get one 100% Silk Eye Mask, one Patchouli & Bergamot 200g Candle and one Patchuli & Bergamot 100g Beauty Bar, all packaged in one beautiful box. The candle consists of top notes of bergamot and mandarin orange, middle notes are gardenia, jasmine and vetiver, base note of patchouli.

Who doesn't love nail polish! I am hopeless at buying my own nail polish, so I love to get it as a gift. Mavala has the cutest collection out at the moment, The Cosmic Collection, which features six innovative flashy shades, sprinkled with moon dust... star effect guaranteed, for a techno and futuristic touch, now in vogue! You can buy them individually for $8.50 or the whole set for $49.95.

Bobbi Brown Instant Glam Set / $160

If you are looking for the perfect, complete set, then this Bobbi Brown gift is perfect. This limited edition set features a best-selling Shimmer Brick highlighter, full-sized Ink Liner, mini Eye Opening Mascara and mini Luxe lip Colour in Neutral Rose. Basically everything you need to create a gorgeous look on Christmas Day, or NYE all in one little set.

Burt's Bees Naturally Lovely / $34.99

Another perfect little set! Inside you get a Beeswax Lip Balm, Gloss Lip Crayon and a Lipstick. They come in a couple of different shades, but it is just a lovely gift for mum, friends or anyone!!

Nutrimetics Rose Gold Brush Set* / $80 

Possibly the most beautiful brushes I've seen in a while! It is the perfect gift this Christmas. The brushes are not only beautiful, but so soft and work so well. They come in a gorgeous rose gold bag as well. At the moment if you spend $125 on Nutrimetics then you can get this set for $19.90.

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Essentials / $165

Treat your skin to Jurlique's Herbal Recovery Essentials, a must-have collection of skincare treats designed to improve suppleness and radiance. It contains an Activating Water Essence (10ml), which is's one of those things you didn't know you needed until you had it; a Herbal Recovery Advanced Eye Serum (15ml), Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum (30ml) and Herbal Recovery Advanced Day Cream (50ml). It's basically the essential set for someone needing some new skin care.

Natio for Men Energetic Gift Set / $19.95

Another perfect little set for the men in your life. This gift set comes with three products: Daily Face Wash, Spice of Life Body Wash and Oil Free Moisturiser. I think these sets are a great way to ease your man into skincare, or spoil him with something he would probably never buy himself!
