OMG CHRISTMAS IS IN A WEEK!!!!!!!!!! How crazy is that?! Felt like December flew by in just a blink of an eye and now Christmas is around the corner. Nov/Dec have always been my busiest months in a year therefore I have always been one of those extremely late Christmas shopper. If you are like me little busy bee, or simply have no idea what to get, then this post is for you! Nuff' said, let's get started! ;)
You guys know how gorgeous Laneige's Milkyway Collection is! For a more affordable option, check out their two-tone lip bar range which has a marbling effect on the bullet! Definitely one of my favourites from the collection! If you are keen, use my code <WINLAZ> to save 5% off your bill when you checkout at Lazada!
Yearly planners are the easiest to get. However, for 2017, why not reward your friends with something funky and sassy to spice up their new year? If this is not their cup of tea, The Paper Bunny does have an array of other planner designs and you are bound to find something that suits your bff! What I truly enjoy about these planners are that they come with a goals planning page to help align your resolutions for the new year.
Reminder Band Cuffs - SGD$58
This is a gift that is on a much more meaningful scale. Found out about it through their sponsored ads on Instagram and I was so inspired by their direction. Simple classic designs with gentle reminders engraved on them, it acts as a little compass for the wearer to remind them that there is more than it is to life. My personal favourite is "Be Kind" whereby it reminds you to be kind to yourself, your surroundings and the people around you. Definitely a beautiful gift to get for someone that means a lot to you.
L'occitane Gift Sets - SGD20 to SGD120
Basic every year essentials but never fails to brighten up anyones day. Nobody minds receiving a luxurious heavenly scented body pampering kit. Afterall, it has been a pretty hectic year, no? ;) My all time favourite scent is of course, roses! However, their newer Arlesienne scent range is beautiful too!
Laneige Snow Whitening Set - SGD$122
Every month, Laneige will have an exclusive set on their new shopping platform, Lazada. For December's holiday exclusive, it is the Snow Whitening Set which is the perfect gift for the kbeauty lover. Having fair glowly clear skin is basicaly the key part of the kbeauty regime and this set will definitely help you to achieve that Song Hye Kyo glow! Plus, the capsule sleeping pack is so travel friendly too!
How can a beauty fanatic like me miss out anything from this wonderland? Here are some of my picks for that fellow beauty fanatic friend of yours. Best of all, Sephora offers gift wrapping so you can strike off the worry about wrapping up that gift of yours. You can head down in stores or simply get it over on their online platform here (Shop by 19 Dec to get your order in time for Christmas).
Tarte Curl Boss Lash Essentials - SGD$34
Every year, Tarte would surprise us with a new instalment of bejewelled lash curlers. Definitely a collector's piece, nobody can say no to this beauty. Plus, you can use this as a little stocking stuffer along other goodies or simply hang it on your X'mas tree in place of a boring old bauble! ;)
Selfie lovers will love this! Full review here, but in a nutshell, it blurs out your pores and reflects light making your skin look flawless in photos. If you have a friend that loves to take pictures of themselves, this is prolly a matchmake in heaven alongside his/her camera.
Fresh Sugar Lip Crush - SGD39
Fresh is basically aesthetic goals. They are always slightly on the pricier side so the Christmas sets are a great deal in comparison. Lip balms are a staple and plus, this set comes with two of my favourite tinted versions so I can guarantee she's gonna love it!
Beautifully priced (lol after discount), this set is the perfect gift under $50! It has a great shade range for a day to night look, and for the experienced, you can even do lip contouring with this! Comes with 5 deluxe tarteist lip paint crayons and 5 deluxe tarteist matte lip paints. Another trick that I love to do is to get sets like these and break them apart to create customised gift stockings filled with products that are suitable for each friend.
Benefit Cosmetics Girl Pop! Set - SGD$74
One of my favourite set from the array of their Christmas collections. This has a bunch of cult favourites like Roller Lash, Dandelion & Posie Tint. Super adorably packaged in the little dolly tin as well.
Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics - SGD$83
Your girl gonna love you big time after this. Probably the most bomb af launch from Urban Decay this year, the Naked Ultimate Basics is a must-have in everyone's collection.
Zoeva Plasir Box - SGD$109
The ultimate blockbuster eyeshadow set for your bestfriend or girlfriend. Great quality shadows, it comes with 3 palettes that offer a wide range of finishes. You can't ask for more!
Kat Von D Obsession Lipstick Set - SGD$300
Insane collection of one of the best matte liquid lipstick. Comes with 15 full-size liquid lippies for the ultimate lippie gal in your life. This is the set for those who are willing to splurge or simply wanna break it apart for 15 beautiful friends in their life. ;)
Lastly, if all else fails, grab your loved ones and have a Christmas feast! Nothing beats catching up with each other and enjoying the time spent together. In this age, we are often way too busy with work, social media and everything else. Spending quality time is definitely rare which is why it is also the best gift of all. Put down your phone and other devices, talk to each other and spread the love!
Hope you guys have an amazing Christmas! Wishing you all the very best and have a beautiful one.
