Festive Treats With Debenhams
This year, as with every year, Debenhams have pulled it out the metaphorical
bag sack when it comes to christmas gifting. I mean, seriously! There is something for every budget, every taste and every one, all under one roof! I honestly can’t think of a store which has so many brands under one roof, especially when it comes to beauty… let’s have a look shall we?
This Works Stocking Fillers
I am a HUGE fan of This Works, their pillow spray is one of my all-time favourite products and I have given multiple bottles away to many a friend and family who have issues with sleeping. What can I say, it’s a brilliant product which I will shout about until the cows come home (and probably after that!) If you have a friend who is a troubled sleeper (or a long-haul traveller), then I can’t recommend these This Works Stocking Fillers enough. These festive packages include mini bottles of their sleep-aid products including my personal favourite pillow spray.
Elizabeth Arden Beauty Express Set
Love Elizabeth Arden make up?! Me too! This bumper Beauty Express Set is jammed packed with beauty treats, all packaged up in a handy little clutch! Need eyeshadow? Got it! Lipstick? Tick! Blusher? Covered! And at the end of the day, there’s even a tiny bottle of make-up remover to take it all off! Perfect for avid travellers and those who do their make-up post-gym, pre-work!
Origins Skincare Treats
Christmas is a great time to get stocked up with skin care treats and when I was browsing the beauty hall, it reminded me of how much I freakin’ love Origins and what a great skincare gift it is! It’s gender neutral, super natural and it’s all about healthy, hydrated, energised skin. Which is something we all need; both men & women, of all age groups! There are some great sets to select from, or you can pick out the hero pieces and create your own gift set bundle! Personally, I think this is a great gift for a dad, wrap it up with a pair of socks and you’re good to go!
Viktor & Rolf ‘BonBon’ Limited Edition
Viktor & Rolf’s BonBon has fast become a modern classic fragrance, however, life just got a little sweeter as Debenhams have a Limited Edition version of the fragrance. Don’t worry, the juice is the exact same blend of rose, osmanthus and jasmine that we all know and love but the bottle has had a snazzy makeover which is exclusive to Debenham’s this christmas. #ThankMeLater.
Viktor & Rolf Candle
A scented candle is alllllways a good gift and I’m personally a huge fan of a good Viktor & Rolf Candle because the scent is perfectly pretty and enjoyable, but also the candle pot itself is so lovely it becomes an object des arts for any house or bedroom. The Flowerbomb candle is currently out of stock online, but you can get it in store, and Bonbon is still in stock both online and in-store. What can I say, it’s a popular choice!
Benefit Cosmetics ‘Complexionista’ Palette
Is christmas really christmas without a little Benefit Cosmetics in your stocking!?! I don’t think so! Whilst there are loads of beautiful Benefit products at Debenhams, this new Complexionista Palette has to be my favourite! It contains two shades of Boi-ing Concealer, Hoola Lite and Hoola bronzers, Watt’s Up Highlighter and Dandelion Twinkle for a rose pink glow. Gorgeous! Oh and this palette is limited edition and it’s priced at the extremely reasonable £26.50! Whoop whoop!
YSL ‘Black Opium’ Perfume
Fancy getting a super luxe gift for your BFF? Just a little something to say, ‘you’re awesome! Thanks for sticking around so long!’. Then I’m gonna suggest something uber-opulent and fabulous like this handbag sized bottle of YSL’s modern classic ‘Black Opium’ perfume. It’s filled with notes of black coffee, white florals and vanilla, it’s sexy, glam and fabulous! PS. At Debenhams on Oxford Street there is Spritz Bar which is amazing if you are looking for fragrance gift for a friend and you need a little help with choosing and wrapping the perfect perfume!
Bobbi Brown Luxe Eyeshadows
I love Bobbi Brown Make-up, it makes my heart SING! However, these new Luxe Eyeshadows are particularly exciting because they are so damned rich, glitzy and lustrous! Choose between 12 different shades in three different finishes; Rich Sparkle, Rich Metal and Rich Lustre and all shine like the freakin’ stars this Christmas!! Everyone from your mum to your little sister is gonna love these!
DKNY ‘Nectar Love’ Gift Set
This year saw the release of DNKY’s Nectar Love and the world went NUTS for it!! It’s not hard to see why, it’s a wonderfully solar fragrance filled with notes of Freesia, Mandarin, Grapefruit, jasmine, vanilla, cedarwood, beeswax and honey accords. It’s a fabulously sunny, sexy, fruity-floral and I am pretty sure any teenage or twenty-something sister would LOVE to unwrap this gift set on Christmas day!
L’Occitane Lavender Hand Cream
Does anyone else love to give hand creams as stocking fillers?! I know I do! Hand creams are such an amazing every day luxury and they are particularly helpful in the winter months when our skin is cold, dry and at times, sore from the elements. L’Occitane Lavender Hand Cream is always a favourite of mine because it’s uber-softening and nourishing, and the scent is relaxing and rebalancing. Seriously, this will go down a treat with any mum, dad, nan or neighbour!
… and there we have it!! Festive Treats With Debenhams, because there really is something for everyone at Debs!
