Christmas time is all about spending time with friends and family, being indulgence and watching TV with a hand in a tin of chocolates.
It's also about giving and receiving lovely presents that can be unwrapped and enjoyed come Christmas Day. So here are my top gift sets from Debenhams that you may want to add to your own Christmas list or treat others to!
Benefit do some amazing gift sets and always bring out some lovely new ones each Christmas. But the new Benefit Upgrade To Gorgeous, £35, has to be the star of the show this year as it contains two full size products - High Beam Highlighter and Sugarbomb Blusher plus 3 minis to try out and all for only £35. Also the lovely Benefit suitcase can be re-used as makeup storage! I know this would make most makeup lovers very happy!
Bare Minerals are all about glitzy and glam come the holiday season and this lovely palette is just that! The Shine On face palette contains a blush, two eyeshadows, two mini brushes, a primer, lipgloss and eyeliner! Plus you get a lovely sequined clutch to keep it in or use separately. I haven't tried many things from Bare Minerals but what I have tried has been great quality and I definitely recommend the Prime Time Eyeshadow primer that comes in the palette as I have a mini sample and it really does make eyeshadow last, while also making eyeshadow more pigmented. A lovely glitzy gift!
I just had to include the Urban Decay Naked 2 Eyeshadow Palette as this is my ultimate favourite eyeshadow palette and would make a lovely gift. The palette consists of 12 very pigmented eyeshadows - a mixture of matte and shimmer finishes. Along with a good quality double ended eyeshadow brush and mini lipgloss. I personally prefer this to the first Naked palette as the packaging is greatly improved and the added brush is really nice. Also the Naked 2 palette features more cool tones eyeshadows were are the first Naked palette consists of more warm shades - just something to note if you aren't sure which to ask for or give as a gift.
Nails Inc know how to cater for nail lovers and this gift set is certainly aimed to please. I know I would love to unwrap this come Christmas morning and I do own my fair share of nail polishes. The Wonderobe gift set contains 6 full size nail polishes and a mini caviar top coat and nail file. I personally would keep the nail polishes in the gift box and sit it on my desk to display them. A luxury looking gift with a good price tag!
In past Christmas' I have been given YSL beauty gift sets and I can truly say ripping open the wrapping paper to see that glint of YSL gold is a moment I can only compare to when Charlie finds his golden ticket! The gift set comes with a lovely YSL pouch which of course can be used as a makeup bag and two full sized products - Touche Eclat and False Lash Effect Mascara which I can truly say lives up to it's name by giving the most voluminous lashes that really do look fake. The YSL Radiant makeup set also comes with a 15ml Forever Youth Liberator Serum. Quite a price tag to this gift set but pure luxury.
I have only just started my Christmas shopping but this year I will be giving a mixture of gift sets and also gift sets that I create myself by buying various products all with a similar theme. Then wrapping them all up in a lovely gift box.
What gifts have you got your eye on to give family and friends this year?
