Hey friends!

Welcome back to my favourite holiday season and the beginning of my favourite blog post series - gift guides! I have always been a fan of writing posts like these and I love coming up with the perfect gift ideas because gift giving is one of the ways I use to express love and appreciation.

So now that we are around the Christmas period, everyone has probably started writing down lists and getting ready for the celebrations. I thought I could come here and give you some ideas on what you can consider adding to that list! Since I've discovered the Shopstyle widget, it makes me listing products so much easier and you getting access to it in a better way and I hope that you've been liking that format so far.

- The Beauty Edit - 

This one is for the beauty lover in your life and I've picked out beauty gift sets that fits a budget for balling on a budget and spending your entire life savings because, Christmas! This selection includes all sorts of make up products that are specially picked to suit most skin tones and level of make up expertise. I see them as 'collectables' just because of their packaging, products and all that fun stuff.
