The Christmas gift guide: Women's beauty gift sets

From drugstore to high end, everyone is on the gift set trend this year. I've been lucky enough to have been sent a few bits and bobs this festive season to show you (and hopefully get the mind twitching with ideas). So that's what I shall do...

TOO FACED Christmas Dreams Beauty Daydreamer set
Armed with a lip gloss, full face palette and a mini mascara, wrapped up in a limited edition makeup bag, Too Faced have it all going on this Christmas. The bunny pattern is festive yet childlike (in a good way) and sweet as anything. I was going to give this away, but I think that I quite need this set in my life. NEED.

SOAP & GLORY Brow Fabulous (and other gift sets)
Soap & Glory are THAT brand that's definitely high street, but with a luxurious spin to their products. I saw every Christmas set they have on offer back in September/October time and I would quite like them all please and thank you. There's something for everyone, the She's So Lippy lip gloss set is perfect for a secret santa for the girl who loves makeup. For the skincare addict, the Make Your Smooth body butter and polish duo fits the bill. The Brow Fabulous set is my personal favourite. A tin with a brow gel, 2-in-1 brow pen and a shaper/highlighter, with a fab sized tweezer in there for good measure. The tin also give you tips for using each product, so it's a win win all round.

What are you opting for this Christmas?

TED BAKER Shaded Blooms eye shadow palette
Another product that I picked up when I was browsing the Christmas sets a few months ago. It's not a set, but bare with me here. Ted Baker are the present company in my house. Everyone that I buy for gets at least one TB present a year, just because the quality is amazing and you can find TB products for not a large price these days, especially with the 3-for-2 beauty items in Boots. One of those items being this palette. 9 shades of nudes and shimmers, to leave you dazzling on that dance floor all night.

I remember when I was younger, how my mum would buy Sanctuary things all the time. The bathroom had that distinct Sanctuary smell and even now, one sniff relaxes me with ease. When the Being range came out, I was a big fan, as Sanctuary had seemed too luxury for a teenager to buy (legit thoughts in my head at the time). It's still fairly new (and I'm still fairly young I hope) and I love that they now offer a range of fun bits and bobs such as the Tub Goals set. This includes a bubble bath, body puff, face mask and an inflatable drinks holder, which I assure you will be put straight to good use this evening. I LOVE their salted caramel & macadamia 'bon bombs' to pop in the baths with some bubbles, and adding one of their masks (usually the pomelo one) for a festive pamper.

LAURA GELLER The Ultimate Kajal Longwear Eyeliner
Why have one eyeliner when you can have 7? The packaging of this set is beautiful and subtle and I love the idea of different coloured eye liners, even if I'm not brave enough for a red or green just yet.

PIXI by PETRA Hello Rose!
I picked this little set up from ASOS recently, and I know that they have variations of them in a few places. This little box contains a highlighter, lip plumper and a blusher/highlight powder.
