Gifts for the men ( or women) in your life

In our family, when it comes to buying gifts , the men in our lives are the hardest to by for. The reason for this being, they have either bought the things they want, or they keep telling us to not waste our money because they don’t need anything!!! To help you narrow down your search for gifts for your men, I have put together a small gift guide. It is worth noting that the majority of these gifts can be bought for women too and the only reason I didn’t include gadgets like these in my other gift guides,  is because this is a beauty blog, I felt it was appropriate…

Christmas Gifts under €100

Kindle Yes I know this isn’t a beauty item, but I couldn’t do a gift list without a kindle!!! I have my kindle about 5 years now and I still  love it as much as I did the first day I got it. If you’re a reader or the person you’re buying for is a reader, than this is an invaluable present.

Must have makeup brushes

It was such a fab event, where I got to meet so many other beauty bloggers as well as seeing and testing some of The Body Shop Christmas gift sets.

Tell me I am not the only one who had soap display in my bedroom as a kid? This Christmas The Body Shop have not let us down with their Christmas gift sets. What makes this Christmas even better is…
