When it comes picking that perfect gift for an extended family member, old friend or office secret Santa, this under £25 category will have you covered. Personally these treats are what I gravitate to once I think my Christmas shopping is complete, I can always manage to add in one extra item to beef up the present bag under the tree and ensure that special someone is being well and truly spoilt. Ranging from makeup, body and hair, all your bases are covered. Either bought individually or altogether they will make a fabulous gift and one super lucky receiver.
I adore REN as their range of clean skincare knows how to deliver. This year the Bath and Body Discovery Kit caught my eye as inside you get four minis ranging from their Moroccan Rose Otto Body Wash and Body Lotion to their Revivo Lift Body Wash and Body Lotion. Both fragrances smell clean and sophisticated and fill the room once the cap has been opened. Perfect for someone who travels or likes to try out different scents in the shower, you can trust that REN will leave your skin feeling smooth and supple throughout the day.
Coming in at just under the £25 mark we have the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette. This little charmer works for so many people as the matte shades can be used in a number of ways. Perfect for a cousin who could be making their first foray into makeup or for a BFF that is starting to experiment with smokey eyes. The range of matte neutrals means an everyday look can be created with ease and vamped up for night with the addition of the dark brown and black shade. Housing a big mirror for touchups on the go you can’t go wrong with this handy little palette.
It wouldn’t be Christmas without a Soap & Glory gift set! They know how to bring those barrels of festive cheer that brim to the top with sweet smelling items to jazz up your everyday shower. Your Own Sweet Lime contains all of Sugar Crushes best with the Body Wash, Body Scrub, Body Buttercream, Hand Cream and Body Polisher packed away inside. Although this might be a tad OTT on the candy side for some, I personally love the fragrance and don’t find it too overpowering. All yours for only £10 it not only makes a great gift, it’s a right old bargain!
Everyone wants that Victoria Secret hair the models strut down the runway with, lucky for you now it can be achieved with this John Fredia Love of Big Hair Gift Set. All your bases are covered thanks to the Touchably Full Shampoo & Conditioner, Dry Lotion Root Booster and All-Day Hold Hairspray working together to transform your tresses. Big hair achieved!
With a Sparkly Gingerbread Body Wash, super festive Cranberry Body Wash and sweet smelling Strawberry Soap all for £5 – I’ll take 3 please ;) A perfect pick for Secret Santa or as an extra present to yourself to pat yourself on the back for getting through the stress of Christmas shopping, I can imagine these selling out pretty pronto. You even get a little cute gingerbread on the packaging to keep you smiling. One of the best value for money sets I’ve found this year.
