Stuck on ideas of what to get your bestie or girlfriend?I have some ideas for you today which include budget gifts that look really luxurious. I hope you enjoy my suggestions - I know any girl would love something like this!
A pretty bookAs a big reader myself, I adore pretty copies of my favorite books. One of my faves is this edition of The Secret Garden, which has silver pages and gorgeous purple leather binding. I got this on the Book Depository, but check your local bookstores for deals like this one (it was only around 15€).
A high end lipstick on a budgetI found my gorgeous YSL Rouge Couture Matte lipstick in the discount section of my local department store. If you're US based, try heading to CCO's, or, for the UK, hit up your TJ Maxx. I only paid 17€ for my lipstick when the regular price is around 30, and it's gorgeous.
I adore Ciaté nail polish, and while they're 10€ a pop, they look even more expensive. I think it would be adorable to get your friend a neutral color and some glitter together, and it's under 20€. A cute stocking stuffer as well.
H&M's beauty line
H&M recently redid their whole beauty line and their adorable packaging would be perfect for some Christmas gifts. I adore their makeup, but another amazing idea is their body care. I love their Cashmere Haze scent, it's really neautral but pleasant and would make anyone happy. Price for the body scrub is around 6€.
A pretty candle
I've bought a lot of candles over the years, and I can vouch for a lot of them, including Primark. Their candles are heavily scented, have great variety and are unique, plus, they come in really hefty, pretty packaging. They don't look cheap at all and would make a really pretty gift for the girls in your life. I think mine was around 3€ - so worth it!
Whether it's Sephora, Lush or your local beauty drugstore, you're bound to find an amazing gift this Christmas. I would also recommend checking online to find some nice stuff for the person you want to give it to - check out some online perfumeries, and don't forget about checking for coupon codes! I love this Too Faced Melted Lipstick set I got in Sephora for around 22€.
Prime example - Afrodita's range of sugar products, especially this Spa Sugar Scrub. I just adore it, it feels luxurious and the packaging looks expensive as well. Such a nice pampering gift for Christmas!
A great perfume
Perfume is such a staple gift and one I just love receiving. I would recommend checking out online perfume stores like Salma and All Beauty to find the perfect scent for your friend/GF at a fraction of the price. I got my Juicy Couture perfume here for only 26€ for 100 ml.
I hope this helped a little bit! I still have to buy some presents myself, and I hope I can find some amazing things for my friends and family.
Have you bought all your Christmas gifts yet?
