A Mini ASOS Christmas Gift Guide
ASOS is hands down my go-to website when it comes to beauty & fashion and well, impulse purchases in general. So when Christmas comes around (i.e September) I get excited to see what they have to offer!
Their gift and beauty sections are now fully stocked and extensive to say the least, stuffed full of wish-list worthy items from a huge range of brands! And as I've already been doing a bit of online Christmas shopping I thought I'd create a mini gift guide* to give a few ideas of what you can pick up this year for friends & family or even put on your own Christmas wish list!
*Apologies in advance if any items listed are out of stock. It's always worth adding the product to 'saved items' on the ASOS website as things do tend to come back into stock.
Club L Night Mermaid Blanket
£32.00 in 6 colour options HERE
The mermaid trend is still going strong right now and one of the key items is a mermaid blanket. These are verging on ridiculous but that's kind of the point and they are very snug for the winter months! I didn't want to risk the quality so I decided to pick up a branded mermaid blanket from Club L on ASOS (as a gift for someone that will hopefully not see this post!) and I have to say it's so thick and warm. You can find the turquoise blanket here. However unbeknown to me all mermaid blankets are open ended, which doesn't make much sense for keeping the ol' tootsies warm, so that is something to be aware of. I will be either applying some bonding web to the end or sewing it up before giving it as a gift. That aside this is whimsical yet practical gift that I feel a lot of people would be happy to receive this Christmas!
Paperchase Pop-up Igloo & Bear Christmas Cards
£7.50 for 6 HERE
Okay, I cheated... this item clearly isn't a 'gigt', unless you are including money or vouchers in the mix... then it certainly is! But I just had to include them as they are oh so lovely! Each year I enjoy finding a set of original cards for close family and this year I will be giving out these lovely pop-up igloo cards that are almost a little decoration when put on a windowsill or shelf. These are currently sold out of ASOS but you may still be able to find them on the Paperchase website or in-store.
Paperchase Set of 3 Copper Clip & Pin Jars
Sticking with Paperchase I also picked up this trio of copper stationary jars. This would make a lovely gift for anyone that loves stationary or all things copper/rose gold. I'm personally more in love with the copper glass jars than what's inside and already have a few ideas of how to re-use. ASOS have such a great range of Paperchase stationary, gifts and Christmas items that are really worth checking out here.
I also wanted to include two gift sets that contain two of my personal favourite products. These not only would make great gifts for a beauty lover (or to throw on your own list!) but are excellent value for money - especially theBalm set.
Pixi Best of Bright Gift Set
Pixi Glow Tonic is one of my most favourite skincare products and if you know someone that loves skincare but hasn't tried this cult classic then this is the ideal set to get them. The 30ml toner is just enough product for the recipient to fully try it out and they also receive the Glow Mud Cleanser and Glow Mud Mask which sound really good. I will never be without Pixi Glow Tonic now so I'd love to find this gift under the tree come Christmas morning!
theBalm Mary Lou Luminizer
+ Free Mini Collection
Another cult favourite in the beauty world is certainly theBalm Mary Lou Luminizer highlighter and a product I have a lot of love for. The highlighter alone costs £17.50 but exclusive to ASOS you also receive 3 mini products - yes! This is perfect for a makeup loving friend as with the mini lip gloss and two eyeshadows it looks more of a set. Also if you don't already own the Mary Lou Lumizer I highly recommend adding it to your Christmas wishlist with strict instructions for the present buyer to buy it from ASOS. This truly is one of the best highlighters on the market!
I really hope this mini ASOS gift guide has given you a little more inspiration on what to gift this year and possibly what to ask Santa for!
