In less than a month it's Christmas time; mistletoe and wine...and pressies, for her!! :D 'HER' being your friend, girlfriend, wife and/or colleague who's always going on about how she's run out of hand cream or one who could do with a Ponsietta on her desk to brighten the otherwise dull office. So here are some items I picked up; see whether you love them as much as I do and maybe treat her to one of them; we all know how Christmas is a time for giving...:P
<3 PUPA Milano's Pretty Bunny in shade 002 (pink). This cute beauty kit, which retails at Eur18.50, contains the most wearable of colours and includes a Compact Blush, a Primer, 5 Compact Eyeshadows, an Applicator for the Eyes and 4 Lip Glosses.
<3 Hair Rehab pack by amika including the Triple Rx Shampoo, Leave in Cream & Triple Rx Mask. It retails at Eur38 which is a very good price for 3 full-size prods. The pack is designed for those in need of serious hair treatment to repair damaged hair. This gift set comes in this pretty box (this is where the 'don't judge me' part comes in but I'd love to get this even just for its cute packaging).
<3 I can assure you that this is more than just a self-help book; "How to stop worrying and start living" promotes rekindling one's lust for life (see where I'm going here?! *wink*). It will be irrational to refuse a worry-free future and that is why I recommend this book.
Available here and retails at approximately Eur8.
<3 Fiorelli necklace available from Boutique by Bling Bling.
A sparkly necklace bestowing elegance, a piece which enhances the all-black evening wardrobe very nicely indeed. And yes, it will make your missus happy!
<3 Your girlfriend may have everything, but who doesn’t need a relaxing facial or massage? The answer - a botanical facial at Yves Rocher Botanical Spa in Paola.
Relax in the nicely set-up room, just you and the relaxing background music. Following the most soothing facial (from a number of facials offered at the Spa such as facials for dry skin, aging skin etc) which lasts about an hour, it's time for make up application by the talented, friendly therapist and you're good to go, leaving the spa in a feel good invincible factor.
<3 What about a bottle of La Petite Robe Noire Couture Eau De Parfum? This is a very glamourous perfumed creation by Guerlain. Besides the packaging (which is just adorable!), is all about touches of raspberry and wood.
The 30ml bottle retails at Eur63 and can be found at Franks Perfumery.
<3 this practical Maike bag by Liebeskind Berlin which retails at Eur79.90. This leather baby, available in Black, Grey, Brandy and Dark Blue is the perfect little bag to keep your basics in. Yep, you're welcome ;)
<3 Ok, so let's take a moment and marvel at this beauty! This is the oh-so-classic Fuji's instax mini 90 and now comes with a number of new advanced features such as double exposures and a high performance flash. Would make the perfect pressie for a think-geek- pro ;) For more details, you can click here.
<3 Elaine Clutch Bag by renowned fashion designers Charles & Ron. Ok so this gorgeous clutch, made of 100% real leather and lined in suede, is one of my personal favourites from this gift guide (hint hint hubby!! :p) and is also available in other colours.
For more details, I'd click my way here; I can assure you that if you're buying this for your lady you'll earn points, like a gazillions of them ;)
Happy shopping!! :D
