Look at me, 2 3 posts in a row and all about Christmas, who even am I? Today I am sharing some gorgeous gifts under £40, and yes, they are gorgeous as I have being using them myself haha.
We must have all known I would have to start off with my fave hair care brand, right? I love everything about Paul Mitchell – their products, that they’re cruelty free and the general vibe of the brand, hence why they were my brand of 2016. I’ve used this set before in around 2015 and loved it, so it would be crazy not to include it. The gift set is priced at £40 and includes a shampoo, conditioner and hair mask – so everything someone will need to have luscious locks. It’s specially formulated for colour treated hair, although I use it on mine and that’s not coloured. It leaves hair smelling and feeling amazing; super silky, soft and healthy. This is the perfect gift for a hair obsessive.
Pai is a brand that is raced about, especially their hydrating cleanser – and with good reason as it’s amazing. I had to include the Pai Landmark Gift Set (£40.00)* as not only is it a stunning set but it has some hard working products in there for any skincare addict. The set itself is packaged in a pastel scene box with silver accents, and the scenes depict London landmarks on there, it then slides open at either end to reveal your selection of products all securely enveloped.
In there is a 100ml of the cult classic Hydrating Cleanser, a Dual Textured Cloth, 30ml Rosehop Oil and a 10ml Calming Day Cream. The Oil is a new product to me and after using is for only a few days I can already say that I love it, it’s perfect for night time use to give an added moisture kick to the skin. This would be a perfect set for both someone new to skincare or someone who’s an old hand at it.
When it comes to perfume I’m quite particular about scents, so when I picked this up I had nerves about not falling in love with the fragrance. However I was pleasantly surprised as the Misguided Babe Power scent is really quite nice. The Babe Power Gift Set (£27.50)* comes with an 80ml parfum and a giant pink fluffy key ring – although with the size of it it’s more like a bag charm as it really quite large and fluffy.
The scent is certainly a very female one and has notes of grapefruit, sour cherry, and pink pepper. Heart notes include orange blossom, peony and jasmine to give a little warmth. The base notes, which is the scents lasting impression, include vanilla for sweetness, Amber for warmth and a creamy musk.
Baylis & Harding always have such lovely gift sets, and I am sorry my potato camera is once again making my images look terrible. The Fuzzy Duck set is currently on offer at Debenhams for £18.00, down from £30.00 and contains 4 products inside a beautiful soft wash bag. This collection contains Mistletoe & Mulberry scented gifts; 100ml Shampoo, 100ml Conditioner, 50ml Shower Gel & 50ml Body Butter in tubes. The products are scented beautifully with a very warm and festive feel to them, and perfect for some Christmas pampering.
And finally, we can’t forget the guys now can we? I featured Bulldog last year with a skincare set, my brother loved it that much that he went out and replaced the items once he has used them all up, so I had to include them again this year. The Bulldog Beard Care Kit is currently on offer in Tesco for the cheap price of £5.62 down from £11.24, so you can’t really go wrong for under 6 quid. In the set you get a wooden, and quite sturdy, beard comb, 200ml bottle of Beard Shampoo & Conditioner & a 30ml bottle of Beard Oil. The products don’t contain artificial colours and are also not fragranced, so they aren’t harsh to the hair/skin.
