Christmas shopping can be a stressful game so I thought I would share some of my top picks, starting from as little as £7 with the look of luxury.
I’ve rounded up 10 of my favourite things under £100 which will be perfect for a style loving lady come Christmas morning. I think the key to a beautiful gift, no matter what you spend, is presentation – tissue paper, chic wrapping and a pretty bow really make a difference.
The festive season needs a good party shoe and these statement beauties tick all the boxes (okay, maybe not the practical box, but you can’t have it all). Plus, their box means easy wrapping! I got these in the St Enoch Centre store or I’ve linked the black version above.
Everyone loves a little glamour at Christmas and this clutch has it all, a perfect gift for beauty lovers. It may seem a little pricey, but it includes Charlotte Tilbury’s hero products in creating the Dreamy Look (i.e. the Victoria’s Secret Angels look, wings not included). Plus, there’s even an amazing lipstick shaped USB which has an exclusive video in creating said look – genius!
I love some pretty packaging and the black and white striped travel case of these Morphe brushes is great. The set includes 12 Morphe brushes and is a fab present for such a good price. This set seems to sell out a lot, but keep an eye out or there are also other great Morphe brush sets on Beauty Bay – and BB’s delivery has always been super quick for me too.
I actually bought this as a little early Christmas pressie to myself, I think it looks more expensive (maybe a little like the Astley Clarke bracelets I love), plus the little dust bag would make it look higher end when your loved one opens it. I got this one in Fenwicks in Newcastle, but they have lots of similar ones on Estella Bartlett’s online store
If you’re buying a watch as a gift, I think a leather strap is the way to go as there’s less worry of having to get it resized (I have ridiculously small wrists so the struggle really is real when anyone has ever got me a chain link watch). I like the luxury feel packaging and I think the price point is ideal.
A higher end beauty product is a great way to gift luxury, Dior are fantastic at their presentation, especially at this time of year. A little Dior bag under the Christmas tree is an Instagram moment waiting to happen and a little bronzer is a lovely little addition to your gift recipient’s make up bag.
You can’t go wrong with a classic Chanel fragrance and this one is a personal fave. I love the iconic packaging and this bottle is refillable meaning its a gift someone can use again and again. Plus, if you order now, you will receive a complimentary gift bag and card available with every Chanel order – so sweet!
Arran Aromatics have re-branded their amazing range of products with their new, sleeker logo. Their Christmas range provides great gift inspo, including this a-mazing cinnamon scent candle. It also comes in a festive tin and looks much more expensive than its £25 price tag. Don’t forget, the brand have a store in Buchanan Galleries for last minute gift pick-ups.
Not going to lie, when I saw this bag I let out a little yelp of excitement. The Valentino-esque studs, the could-be-Louboutin red faux suede lining and, best of all, the under £30 price! Everyone must have also loved it as I’ve just noticed it’s sold out online, but they did have them in H&M’s Argyle Street store earlier this week…
I’ve been obsessed with this cute decoration as soon as I saw it in the Argyle Street store. Sparkle + doughnuts = ideal festive decor. I’ve not seen this online, but they still did have them in-store.
