If you're planning on buying beauty related gifts or homeware gifts such as candles, room sprays and reed diffusers then Fragrance Direct is definitely a place you should check out. For this blog post I've picked out an array of beauty gifts that I think would make perfect gifts this Christmas. Obviously with Fragrance Direct always aiming to offer their customers the lowest price possible it means that you'll obviously save some money too!

First up is the Ghost Daydream EDP Spray 30ml priced at £15.50 (RRP £27). I think Ghost perfumes are always really nice to buy as a gift as the bottles are always so pretty. For instance the Ghost Daydream EDP comes in a lovely bottle which shows off an array of yellow, lilac and blue tones when it's caught in the light because of the multi-faceted bottle. It contains notes such as Citrus, Salt, Violet, Tuberose Absolute, Patchouli and more which all blend together to create a lovely airy, floral scent.

Next is the gorgeous Heathcote & Ivory Vintage & Co. Top to Toe Kit priced at £6.99 (RRP £10) which I think is just such an aesthetically pleasing looking gift and I like that it contains a nice array of products which are a little different to your usual gift sets that are priced around the same price. It contains a lip balm, body lotion, foot cream, bath salts and hand cream and I think it could make a great gift for an array of people in your life too. It also has a little "To: XXXX From: XXXX" tag which I think is cute.

Moving onto a main makeup gift I thought the BareMinerals Crystalline Glow Bronzer & Highlighter Palette priced at £19.99 (RRP £30) looked like a perfect Christmas gift! The limited edition palette has been designed to create a healthy-looking rose gold glow on all skin tones. It kind of reminds me of the BECCA highlighter palettes because of the multi-dimensional, marbled look of each powder. Each one also contains illuminating crushed rose quartz crystals and squalene which is a natural moisture magnet. The powders have also been baked so that they last longer and contain microfine mineral luster pigments for a weightless radiance.

If I ever find out that someone has never tried a Wetbrush before I'm just like "whaaat?" so I just had to pop one in this gift guide. I think they're a great stocking filler and they are honestly game changing and really help to reduce damage to your hair. I never use any other brush but a Wetbrush on my hair since discovering them last year. They do have different options and colours to choose from but I decided to include the Wetbrush The Wet Flex Dry Brush in Pink priced at £7.99 (RRP £14) in this gift guide. It's designed to be used on wet hair because the InteliFlex bristles and flexible brush head are perfect for detangling hair. 

Next up is the NUXE Christmas Cracker Gift Set which unfortunately I can't seem to find on the website anymore but maybe it'll come back in stock soon because it is specifically for Christmas. Inside the cracker you get four NUXE minis - Huile Prodigieuse Or 10ml, Huile Prodigieuse Florale 10ml, Creme Prodigieuse Boost Gel Cream 15ml and the Insta-Masque Purifying 15ml. The Huile Prodigieuse scent is one of my all time fave scents - it's just so nice! If you're not familiar then it contains notes of Orange Blossom, Magnolia and Vanilla. I think it's a great way to introduce someone to NUXE and I love that it comes in the cracker packaging to make it a bit more Christmassy and special.

For the skincare lover in your life I thought the REN Clean Skincare Stop Being So Sensitive Kit priced at £20.99 (RRP £22) looked like a great gift set. It contains four minis of their sensitive range Evercalm and they are: Gentle Cleansing Milk (50ml), Global Protection Day Cream (15ml), Anti-Redness Serum (10ml) and Ultra-Comforting Rescue Mask (10ml). I thought it would make a great skincare gift because after the festive season our skin tends to need a pick me up after we've consumed wayy too much alcohol and chocolate haha!

I also decided to feature the Technic Man Stuff Keep It Clean Gift Set priced at £4.99 (RRP £6.99) which I personally liked the look of because it contains a big 500ml bottle of Hair & Body Shampoo and a 270g bottle of Muscle Soak bath salts. I thought it was a bit different to the usual bog-standard gift set for men. There's also loads more sets in the "Man Stuff" range that are affordable and a bit quirky too.

And lastly I've chosen to include the COTY Beckham Inspired By Respect After Shave Lotion 60ml priced £6.99 (RRP £19.95) mainly because of the whopping saving of £12.96! It comes in a nicely presented box and contains a blend of zesty grapefruit and watermelon notes along with a fiery hit of pink pepper. Also with base notes of vetiver, patchouli and moss. I just think it'd make a great main gift or you could also add to it and pop it into a hamper or something like that.
