Tis the season to buy presents fa la la la laaaa! Below is a compilation of the perfect presents for every type of loved one, including yourself. Happy Holidays ❤️
Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff – Waterstones
A dear friend gifted me this book for my birthday and I have not been able to put it down since. Not only should you buy this book for yourself, why not gift to a friend or family member who could do with a little pick me up. It’s so easy to read and helps the reader to see the lighter side to life.
The Little Book of Lykke – Waterstones
I truly love the way Meik Wiking writes and I find it so cool that he is the CEO of The Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen. I hope I can visit one day! In this book you find out why and how there are happy people all over the world with completely different lifestyles. Oh and the book is very much a “leave out on the sideboard in the living room” aesthetic.
Givenchy L’Interdit– John Lewis
Hands down my favourite perfume this year. I wear it all the time and often find myself saying, “What is that, it smells so good?!” Then realise its me hehe. The perfect perfume for the season.
Gin Glass – John Lewis
Now I am not sure if I have shared this before; but as my friends and family definitely know, if I am going to have an alcoholic drink its gonna be gin. Big gin glasses say “celebration season” like no other AND they come in hues of blue and purple. Dreamy.
Naughty & Nice Mugs – John Lewis
It’s the question on everyone’s lips this season; “Have you been naughty or nice?!” Don’t answer that and buy this mug set instead. Perfect gift for a couple, new homeware, aunties, uncles or adding a touch of Christmas into your home that’s not covered in tinsle and sparkles.
Napkin Rings – John Lewis
The table decoration you need this Christmas. Add a touch of colour and nature into the scene and feel super fancy, I mean napkin rings, just the name feels like grown up Christmas table.
Dermalogica Radiant Set – John Lewis
This is for sure an investment piece. For me personally I would rather spend a £100 on skincare than makeup/clothes because I know it is actually doing good for my body. This is the type of gift you buy yourself as a treat (the below one for a friend!) It contains the most fantastic Dermalogica products to help your skin be as radiant as possible in this dry, cold weather.
Dermalogica Normal/Oil Skin Set – John Lewis
Ok now this is the skincare set you gotta buy your family and friends. Its a fabulous taster kit of the insane benefits that Dermalogica give your skin. My personal favourite products out of this kit is the special cleansing gel and multi-active toner. They are the perfect size for travel and calm your skin after a day of wearing lots of makeup, harsh weather, environmental factors and so on. They also do kits for dry skin or combination. *Adds to basket immediately*
Furry Slippers – Topshop
Picture the scene… Long day at work. Feet are tired. Back hurts. Want to go straight to sleep. As you open the front door to your home you are greeted by these beautiful fluffy, fabulous, freaking PURPLE SLIPPERS 😍 Soft, cosy, encasing your tiny toes in a happy place ready for relaxation. What more could you want from a slipper really?!!
Eyeko Mascara Gift Set – Eyeko
My favourite mascara hands down is the Eyeko waterproof sport mascara. It is the ONLY mascara that does not itch during the day, actually curls my eyelashes, doesn’t look like spiders legs and doesn’t leave you with panda eyes after 10 hours wear. I have tried so many others with varying prices and not one is anything close to this. Want to try out the others in the range? Me too. I am actually waiting for this beauty to be delivered as we speak. Another one of those adds to basket. One for you, one for me!
Almond Milk & Honey Delights Bag – The Body Shop
I’m not sure about you but my skin has been so dry this season. It happens every year, the nights get dark, the layers of clothes go on, but I still get surprised that I have to layer myself with body lotions as well. My absolute favourite range at The Body Shop is almond milk and honey. It smells divine and is made for dry and sensitive skin. I use the body yoghurt and shower gel together; its a wonderful combination. Plus you get a hand cream for your bag so you can still lather up on the go!
Merry Treats Body Butter Trio – The Body Shop
Now The Body Shop have been very kind here. They’ve only gone and put my three favourite flavours into one perfect Christmas set! Mango is perfect for the Summer, moringa for Spring, its so fresh and then almond milk and honey for Autumn Winter. It’s probably the best gift in the whole gift guide for the person you have no clue what to get but you want it to be nice. This is it.
The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 – ASOS
Can you tell I like my skincare? I was on the search for the best hyaluronic acid serum for the best price point and boy did I find it. I’ve been using this now for three weeks and it’s completely changed the texture of my skin for the better. Thank you The Ordinary!
Cameo Rose Black Organza Sleeve Dress – New Look
This has been featured on my gram and will be a lot during the festive season. Not only is it the perfect little black dress its at an astonishing price point! No more words, the picture says it all.
Psychic Sisters Crystal Set – ASOS
Want some good vibes to start the new year and the new decade? Urm yes. A way to get into crystals without investing and doing tons of research. A small protection set for that good, good energy for 2020.
Bobble Water Bottle – ASOS
One for everyone present. The sustainability one. The on the go person. The work secret Santa present. The sporty person present. The “I have no idea what they like, what can I buy them… well they must drink water..” present 😂 Simple but effective. I mean, you can’t go wrong with a water bottle really. Non-offensive purely practical and wellness focused present. You’re welcome.
Giraffe Phone Case – Coconut Lane
I think I have left the best present until last. This present is flawless. 1. It’s got giraffes on it (who doesn’t like giraffes?!) 2. 50% of the profits are donated to the African Wildlife Foundation. 3. Use my code “HANNAHAUSTYN20” for 20% discount across the WHOLE Coconut Lane website.
To end your Christmas gift list, you’ve given presents to everyone you know, you’ve given to charity AND you’ve got a cheeky discount from me. Merry Christmas Darlings!
