Christmas Gifts for your Girlfriends

christmas gift guide I’ll be straight up with you, if you are starting your Christmas shopping now you are cutting it close, however no fear because I am here to help you with some great gift ideas for your girlfriends. By girlfriends I mean girls who are your friends, like your buddies, your besties, familiars, the ying to your yang or that friend who always knows when it’s time to swap your vodka for water and not tell you. But this guide is probably useful if you are trying to buy your female significant other a gift too, so read on person who has friends that are girls!

I still believe that one of the best gifts is either getting someone something which they use all the time (a gift that you know will go to good use), or giving an item which you know the person would love but one of those things they wouldn’t be able to justify buying for themselves.

Must Have Lush Products

Lush is one of my favorite stores of all time, I just love everything about it. The smell which lingers even when you are still metres away from the store, the bright colours, the natural ingredients, the smiley staff and just the general happy vibe of the whole brand. Being cruelty free, environmentally friendly and supporting Fair Trade is also a huge bonus – I like to think of buying at Lush as a treat for me but also as something which benefits other people too (double bonus).

Lush products have been a huge part of my skin improvements this year – and my skin is a pretty tricky little thing! In the past I have struggled Continue reading
