Christmas Gifts with Deals

Christmas gift guides are arriving thick and fast. In the past two weeks the postman has delivered chez moi edits from Jo Malone, Liz Earle, L’Occitane and Space NK. Then there are catalogues I’ve picked up directly in-store, plus the masses of Christmas gifting emails that have landed in my inbox recently.  Drawing up lists for Santa is going to be exhausting work!

Whether you’re a bit pushed for time, or wish simply to compare notes, here’s my edit of the ‘Gifts for Her’ edits:

  1. I could only but dream of getting the L’Occitane Delicious Almond set. Here is hope that Santa is listening.

  2. What a great selection and I love how you've broken it down into different price brackets. Only problem is that I want everything! x

  3. The Jo Malone set is on my wishlist x

  4. I am crazy on L'Occitane just love the items. ekkk so excited with all this .x

  5. I think I'd love these candles. I love scented candles and these scentes seem a bit different than the usual lavender or rosemary scents.

  6. Great stuff here! I am in love with Lancome anything, so this sounds especially delightful. T.

  7. i love the jo malone set, it would be a fab gift!

  8. This is a great Christmas gift post!! Definitely thinking of getting some of these items for some people :)

    Becky, x

  9. Great list - I love the Lancome gift set and will definitely be pinning that to my christmas pinterest board! The ciate baubles are on TK Maxx for £16 for 6 at the moment ... I ordered them last week to distribute amongst friends!

  10. Lovely gifts, but I prefer stuff without a gift set, very seldom I find that the whole range is worthwhile the money spent. I often find one thing that I like and the rest is rubbish. The only exception was Estee Lauder which I was in love with for a long time or until I got myself into blogging and discovered lots of other products that are great. Now I still have Estee Lauder stuff from ages ago, but I am using something else instead.. New brands can be amazing!

  11. Santa, I've been a good girl, may I have those fab candles?! A nice choice of festive gifts!
