BEAUTIFY: A Christmas Luxury

When I ask people what they want for Christmas, I find nothing more irritating than them answering ‘I’d like some money towards {insert thing they want to buy themselves}’. Presents, for me, are things that a person wouldn’t normally buy themselves- that’s what makes them special and exciting. No, I won’t give you money towards that stupidly expensive juicer that I know you’ll buy anyway but would rather only pay half the price. That’s no fun. I like giving luxury, seeing joy and glee on someones face as they unwrap their present.

Stuck for ideas? Here’s my top three luxury Christmas gift buys.

Let’s be honest- you can never go wrong with Chanel. It’s classic, timeless and everyone wants it for themselves. For Christmas, Chanel have introduced some new products to their counters and we’ve fallen for the Poudre Universelle Libre in Moon Light. A light, brightening and light reflecting powder that comes in a big ol’ pot and will make you have the skin you’ve ever dreamed of. (NB great for hangovers). Top it off with the new Rouge Allure Velvet lipstick in La Sompteuse and no one will be able to resist you.

Oh wait, these are meant to be gifts…. buy two of each?

There’s nothing better than a personalised gift. And I’m not talking about a homemade card. Estee Lauder have released a Limited Edition collection of Zodiac Powder compacts. Encased in gold, with shining diamante to boot- this is an impressive gift if there ever was one.

If you like being a big spender and REALLY pulling the cat out of the bag, the Tom Ford 12 piece Lip Color Box should be top of your agenda. Giving the gift of Tom Ford is impressive enough, but TWELVE Tom Ford’s all at once? You might kill someone when you take their breathe away. It comes in a big, aptly over the top Tom Ford box and the array of colours inside huge. If you know a lipstick girl, this has to be the ticket. It’ll come with the price tag though, so get ready to splash your cash. But be quick- head to Harvey Nichols ASAP as Selfridges and Harrods have sold out!
