Hi lovelies! I'm back again with another Christmas Gift guide! As I mentioned in my stocking fillers post, Christmas is an expensive time and it's always worth looking around for a bargain when shopping for gifts. I'm hoping to make this post the first on many 'Best of the Bargains' Christmas Gift Guides, as going further into December, the most part of your Christmas shopping is probably(/ hopefully!!) finished and all that's left is the 'little extras'. Whether those little extras are gifts for friends, a little something to add to your Mum's gift, a stocking filler for your Sister or perhaps just something to add to your own wishlist, it's always great to find a great gift for less than £10 and that's exactly what these posts are all about! This particular post is focussed on Beauty, all ten of the gifts in this post are £10 or less. Sometimes cheaper gifts can look like cheaper gifts, but for this post, I've picked out 10 of what I think are great quality, luxurious gifts with a smaller price tag!

First of all, All Beauty have a huge selection of Victoria's Secret products, but these sprays in particular are great, as they're 'Holiday' themed according to the site. Fab for a girly girl's stocking! Philosophy are well known and lusted after by beauty lovers for their luxurious Christmas gifts, but the price tag can be a bit of a turn off, however this adorable little Hands of Hope Bauble is super affordable and actually has 10% off at Debenhams right now! Wilkos have an amazing selection of Gift sets this Christmas, but a couple that stood out for me were the John Frieda kits, these are available in both Blonde and Brunette and for such a teeny tiny price tag, they make an amazing stocking filler for any lady in your life. This is a particularly great gift for anyone going away over Christmas, as all the products are perfectly travel sized.

Ted Baker can do no wrong in my eyes and once again they've nailed it with their Christmas Gift Sets this year. This little kit comes in beautiful box, which could be kept and used afterwards and includes 4 miniature products in a beautiful scent with pretty packaging. As this is from Boots, it is of course, in their 3 for 2 offer, so you could save further if you're buying any other gifts in the store! Another brand that I think gets it right every Christmas is Topshop, who doesn't love a little treat from Topshop's makeup range? And who doesn't love it even more when it's in Bauble form? They do several of these Baubles with Lip Bullets, Lipsticks and Nail Polishes, so there's bound to be one to suit the lady you're buying for.

This Korres duo is fab for girls into skincare, perhaps mature ladies in particular such as your Mum or Nan, as it contains two, brightening, anti-ageing products. Korres are a brand that I really love personally, so I think this would be a great gift for someone that enjoys looking after their skin. A super safe gift for a friend, sister or any other girl in your life is a Soap & Glory gift, because honestly who doesn't love Soap & Glory? This All The Right Smooths trio is great, as it contains three of their best selling Body Butters, so there are three to try out if they haven't tried them before. Along the same theme, The Body Shop also have lots of Christmas Gifts to choose from and what I love about The Body Shop is that they have a huge range with a wide price range, so if you want a bigger gift for someone, they have bigger, higher priced gifts, but they also have lower priced gifts that are every bit as lovely. This little Vanilla Brulee treat box is lovely, as it contains miniatures of the Shower Gel and Body Butter, which everyone loves with a bath lily. The Vanilla Brulee scent is absolutely gorgeous too, super festive and perfect for the season.

I may have let out a little squeal when I saw this little Benefit Posietint and Highbeam duo from ASOS. This super cute little set contains two little deluxe miniatures of the products for only £9.50 - which saves you over 30%. Being a Benefan through and through, this is something I'd love to receive. I think it's such great value as the tints and highlighters from Benefit last such a long time as you only need a tiny amount. This would be a great stocking filler for someone who loves makeup but is fairly new to the brand, as it's good to try out the smaller sizes before committing to buying the full size. Finally, another super cute bauble, this fab Steam Cream Bauble would make a great stocking filler for anyone as Steam Cream is honestly such an incredible product and would suit any skin type. It also helps that it comes in a cute silver star ornament.

Phew! So, that's it, my top ten beauty bargains this year!
Let me know what you think, would you like to see any of these under your Christmas tree?

  6. I got that vanilla brûlée set from body shop for 3.50 when they were doing 50% off so worth checking for codes if your getting any gifts from there - makes it even cheaper! Love the benefit set too!
