This week’s Christ­mas gift guide is for the woman in your life who loves her skin­care and make-up prod­ucts and will al­ways be happy to see a beauty gift box un­der the Christ­mas tree! Fes­tive beauty sets are a great way of treat­ing the lady in ques­tion to a beauty goodie that she loves and might not al­ways al­low her­self to splash out on. A good tip for know­ing what she might like is to have a sneak peek into her bath­room cab­i­net or make-up bag and make a note of which brands she uses. There are so many gor­geous beauty gift sets avail­able this year that I re­ally strug­gled to nar­row down my top picks foryou! I’ve sifted through end­less op­tions and come up with my ab­so­lute favourites: from su­per luxe beauts to stock­ing-filler bar­gains and some­thing for ev­ery type of beauty buff. Beau­tyAd­vent cal­en­dars con­tinue to be su­per pop­u­lar this year, with nearly ev­ery big beauty brand of­fer­ing their ver­sion for De­cem­ber 2018. These can be a great way to try new prod­ucts from brands that your lady likes — and are gen­er­ally good value too — so bear them in mind for gift­ing on Christ­mas Day, even if Ad­vent has tech­ni­cally ended by then!
