It's unusual for me to start feeling festive before December, but this year it's hit me much sooner! Each year I like to put together some green beauty Christmas gift inspiration for those of you on the lookout for ideas. As always, I'll be splitting things up into a three-part series, starting with my favourite selection of luxury gifts for her (followed by gift ideas for him and lastly budget friendly gifts/stocking fillers). With natural and organic beauty becoming ever more popular, the selection available is definitely growing so it's been tough narrowing it down to my top gift ideas!
The Nature of Beauty by Imelda Burke - £19.99
So this first item isn't technically a beauty product, but I just had to include it! Written by the founder of one of my favourite stores Content Beauty & Wellbeing, The Nature of Beauty is set to be the definitive guide to the modern world of natural beauty, organic skincare and clean cosmetics. The book is available from December 1st (I already have my copy pre-ordered!) and I think it would make a perfect gift for anyone with an interest in natural and organic beauty, and it would be particularly helpful for those who are just starting to think about making the switch.
Yarok Party Hair Selection - £59.00
Yarok are easily up there amongst my most loved haircare brands. Their products have never failed to impress me and their ingredients are fantastic (their entire line is vegan too). This selection featuring Yarok Feed Your Ends Leave-In Conditioner (reviewed here), Feed Your Style Dry Shampoo and Feed Your Shine Serum comes gift wrapped in a gloss box with gold ribbons from abeautifulworld and would make the ideal gift for someone who loves to take good care of their hair!
Little Ondine Discovery Collection - £42.50
If I had to choose just one nail polish brand to use exclusively, Little Ondine would be it! If you haven't heard of Little Ondine, they're unlike any conventional nail polish you've tried before. Their formula is water-based, completely odourless and simply peels off your nails to remove. These polishes have revolutionised the process of painting my nails - you can read more in my previous review here. This discovery collection contains 3 full sized colours, a Twin mini which combines a luxury polish made with pure silver and base/top coat, along with a dotting tool for creating nail art.
Alima Pure smoky Eye Set - £50.00
The special occasions over the festive period are always the perfect excuse for a dark smoky eye look! This set from Alima Pure contains four products inside a reusable clear makeup bag, including their Natural Definition Black Mascara, Natural Definition "Ink" Eye Pencil, Pearluster "Cypress" Eyeshadow and Luminous Shimmer "After Hours" Eyeshadow. This would make a great gift for makeup lovers!
Balm Balm Organic Facial Collection - £45.00
This Christmas gift set features all the items you need for a full facial skincare routine. It includes Balm Balm Super Light Coconut Cleanser, Witch Hazel Toner, Hibiscus Face Mask, Little Miracle Rosehip Serum and an organic cotton muslin cloth. If you're looking for a truly clean and natural brand, you really can't get much more pure than Balm Balm's 100% organic range!
ILIA Beauty Mini Lip Trio - £40.00
Anything mini when it comes to makeup always has me instantly interested, even if only for the cute factor alone! I've only tried one product from ILIA Beauty myself, but I always hear great things from other bloggers about their lip products in particular. This limited edition trio comes in a copper pouch with two Tinted Lip Conditioners in the best-selling shades Bang Bang (red) and Nobody's Baby (nude) and Femme Fatale Lipstick.
Look out for natural/organic gift ideas for the men in your life, coming soon!
