It’s almost advent and we’re all desperately trying to get together our Christmas and New Year outfits. Before you go all out on your festive ensemble, spare a thought for the beautiful and fashionable on your gift list. Although you may be at risk of keeping these glam prezzies for yourself, tis the season for sparkles and good cheer. You better get them something decent.

If you want any more ideas than these below, we loved this fantastic article from Ladylux, ‘Haute for the Holidays.’

Charlotte Tilbury – Luxury Palette, The Dolce Vita

This eye palette is perfectly co-ordinated for an extremely glamorous and tasteful evening look. If these colours won’t suit your skin tone, there’s a whole collection of quads to choose from. You can even get application tips on their website, so you can achieve a professional look.

NARS – One Night Stand Cheek Palette

Some of the best blushers on the market all in one palette. It has everything you’d possibly want and works beautifully with any skin colour. It’s hard to miss the raving reviews of the product on the website. And how can so many people be wrong?

Spa Facial

Who ever said a voucher is impersonal? Sending your loved one a ticket to pampering heaven will strike all the right notes. Not only is a facial revitalising, but it’ll make you glow in these dismal winter months and shave years off your skin.

Alternatively, for a stocking filler, you can buy an Astalift intense re-plumping mask to ape a facial at home.

Bobbi Brown Hollywood Red Lipstick

Get a vintage Hollywood pout this Christmas with Bobbi Brown. You can’t go throughout the whole festive season without a pair of beautifully red pouters. It just wouldn’t be cricket. If you’re worried that this particular shade of red won’t suit your friend or family member, find a rouge that will suit their complexion. It’s probably a good idea to get a matching lip liner too.

Pearl and Butler Necklace

For any Christmas evening dos, this statement pearl necklace will turn any LBD into the main party piece. It has the bonus of filling in any plunging necklines

Swell Haircare

Swell may not look like the prettiest bottles on the professional haircare shelf, but it certainly packs a punch. This three stage product line will boost your hair thickness considerably. So, if the recipient of your Christmas treat suffers from quite fine tresses, this would be perfect for them. Turn up the volume!

Footner Exfoliating Socks

Gross but effective (and strangely satisfying), Footner turns Hobbit feet into baby-soft tootsies. You just put on the socks (they’re filled with gel), remove, and rinse. A few days later, all the yucky stuff will peel straight off your feet in large pieces to reveal young-looking feet. You don’t need to bother with any of that scrubbing stuff.
