CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE FOR YOU LAST MINUTE LADIES





So, it's 5 days until Christmas, and you've bought approximately zero presents from your friends and family. It's far too late to get actual good, 'it looks like I did my christmas shopping months ago' presents and you're resigned to the dreaded petrol stations gifts, right? Wrongggg! See the best thing about living in a highly consumerist, materialistic, impatient society is that retail business never stops, and you're pretty much able to order gifts right up until Christmas Eve. So, I've compiled the perfect gift guide for all you last minute ladies of any budget in desperate need of some gift ideas. I've checked that everything will arrive just in time for Christmas, and I've also sought out the best and cheapest deals on all products! You can thank me later!


THE BEAUTY GURU

For the one who is a huge makeup addict...

1.) MORPHE 24B MOCHA EYESHADOW PALETTE - £19.00
If you're on a bit of a budget, I cannot recommend this Morphe Palette enough! There are 25 shades that are highly pigmented, both shimmers and mattes, in perfect A/W colours. For only £19.00, this is a perfect stocking filler or main present!
Available from Beauty Bay Here 
Order by 9pm 21st December Next Day Delivery.

2.) NYX WARM NEUTRALS EYESHADOW PALETTE - £16.00
Now I don't actually own this palette, but I saw it on Boots and thought the shades looked absolutely beautiful! With some beautiful burgundy autumnal shades, this would be great for any lover of warm shades and it's a good price too!
Available at Boots Here 
You can also get a free 'Love Contours All' palette worth £20 when you spend £25 on NYX makeup (while stocks last!)
Order by Friday 22nd December for Next Day Click & Collect before Christmas. 

3.) CHARLOTTE TILBURY LUXURY PALETTE* - £39.00
Now, if you've read any of my beauty posts this year, you'll know just how much I adore the CT makeup products, and I could recommend pretty much anything from the range! But one of my absolute favourites are the eyeshadow palettes - there are a number of different ones to cater for all tastes - I have 'The Rebel' Palette, which you would've seen me use in a tutorial in this post. 'The Dolce Vita' and 'The Golden Goddess' look like beautiful universal palettes, and seem like pretty safe gift choices if you're not too sure on preferred colours. 
CT is definitely on the pricier end of the spectrum, but if you're looking to treat someone, then they're definitely the perfect gift!
Available on the CT website Here.
Order by 12pm on Thursday 21st December for guaranteed Christmas Delivery.

4.) CHARLOTTE TILBURY K.I.S.S.I.N.G. LIPSTICK - £24.00
If you want to get something luxury but for a little bit less, then I would 100% recommend a CT lipstick! They're still pricey, but more affordable than an eyeshadow palette, and there are a tonne of shades so you're sure to find one that's suitable. I'd personally recommend the shade 'Hepburn Honey', it's a gorgeous brown-toned nude and suitable for a range of skin tones. CT also has a super cute 'mini lipstick' set especially for Christmas - a perfect luxe 'stocking filler', if you ask me! 
Lipsticks available on the CT Website Here
Lipstick Gift Set available on the CT Website Here and Here

THE DIFFICULT ONE

For the one who has everything, or who gives you the super unhelpful 'surprise me' advice... 

1.) HENRY LONDON WATCH* (Thurs 21st) - £105.00 - £115.00
You guys all know how much I love my Henry London Watches, and this year I've been lucky enough to have a few gifted to me, that I have gotten so much use out of! Watches are a surprisingly ... present - we don't expect that we'll use them, but I now feel kinda naked without mine, and my mother and sister, who I also gifted watches to, are now exactly the same! I'd recommend 'The Richmond', which I styled in this post, if you're after something extremely classic and minimalist - perfect for everyday wear. Or, if you're after something slightly more unusual, I'd recommend 'The Heritage Square' - beautiful, sophisticated, a little more modern, but still classic. If you're looking to make it extra special, then complimentary engraving is available too - read all about making ... in my post here. 
Available on the Henry London website Here
Order before 2pm on Thursday 21st December for guaranteed Christmas Delivery.
Don't forget you can get an extra 20% off any watch (even sale!) with the code EVA20! 

2.) SÓ SOY CANDLE* - £20.00
For super luxe candles without breaking the bank (ahem Jo Malone!), I'd absolutely recommend Só Soy Candles, they smell incredible and also have that minimal instagram vibe that we all love (bonus!) I have the Black Coffee, Jasmine and Vanilla candle, and it's beautiful! 
Available from BeauBox Here
Last chance for delivery is Wednesday 20th December - Today!

4.) A 2018 DIARY - £10.00 - £26.00
You can't go wrong with a diary as a gift - such a lovely gift for a super duper organisation freak, or the opposite - a great treat for anything who is a complete unorganised message (aka me!)

Kate Spade - here
Order by 8pm on Friday 22nd for Click and Collect Next Day Delivery.


THE BOOK WORM

For the one who is always found buried in a book somewhere...

1.) THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN - £4.00
This was one of the only books I read for fun this year (I ashamed to say it, but I'll try to read more next year!) It's a great crime thriller with a bit of a twist - great for just about anyone who loves to read (though make sure they haven't seen the film first!)
Available on Amazon for £4 here - free next day delivery on Amazon Prime.

2.) VOGUE ON: COCO CHANEL - £13.50
Perfect for any lover of fashion, it gives a great run through of Coco's life and works, I really good short read, and also serves as a great coffee table book too! 
Available on Amazon for £13.50 here - free next day delivery on Amazon Prime.


THE FASHIONISTA

For the wannabe Carrie Bradshaw in your life...

1.) VOGUE COLOURING BOOK - £7.99
A slightly more unusual gift, but colouring isn't just for kids, folks! This is actually an excellent present for anyone who is really into self care (which we all should be!) I've found colouring to be great therapy and a great way to de-stress. Plus, the pictures in this book are beautiful and a joy to colour!
Available on Amazon for £7.99 here - free next day delivery on Amazon Prime.

2.) GHD HAIR STRAIGHTENERS* - £125.00
GHD currently have a great new limited edition collection for Christmas, all the pieces have purple designs and also come with full sized OPI polishes in the gift sets. I'd recommend the hair straightener set - not only is the packaging pretty, but true to form, the GHDs got my hair straightened like no other - my super curly hair was pin straight!
Available on the GHD website Here.
Order by 8pm on Thursday 21st December for Christmas Delivery.

3.) GUCCI BELT - £235.00 - £320.00
Now, one of my absolute fave accessories this year has been my Gucci GG Marmont belt (I've worn it in a tonne of outfit posts - but I think this is my favourite!), and folks, if you thought Gucci's gaudy accessories were gonna be so 2017 and 'out' next year, then all I can say is that they sure are here to stay. If you're looking to treat your loved one to luxury this year, then you can't go wrong with a GG Belt!
Available in the Black (Thin) Here

3.) SAINT LAURENT CARD HOLDER - £180.00
So, I don't have this - but it's on my Christmas list! (Please, Santa!) This is definitely a little bit of luxury that any designer brand lover would be chuffed with!
Available from Selfridges Here
Order by Friday 22nd December for Next Day Delivery, or by 23rd December for next day click and collect. 

4.) GUCCI DIONYSUS MINI BAG - £570.00
Now, if you're feeling superrrrrr generous of if your budget means you're able, then the ultimate gift for a fashion lover would be a designer bag. The dionysus has been such a huge blogger fave this year, and they've just brought out a mini version which is a.) absolutely adorable and b.) not quite as spenny and bank breaking as the bigger versions. Definitely a wonderful treat!
Available from MyTheresa Here

So, there you have it! I hope you find these suggestions useful - happy shopping!
I'll be back later this week with one more post before Christmas.

Until next time, 
Bisous <3
