Small gift ideas

Small gift ideas

I always struggle with the smaller gifts, even though most of the time they're my favourite types to receive I find them harder to choose! But sometimes you need that smaller gift/stocking filler just to finish off a gift, so I thought I'd do a post on a mixture of stocking fillers/small gifts. I know it's Christmas soon, so I am a little behind, but these would make lovely gifts all year round. Whether it's for Christmas (can you believe it's two days away?!), birthdays or a treat yo' self moment. I seem to be having treat yo' self moments a lot lately though..!

Small gift ideas

Skincare gifts

I love bits of skincare as gifts, as it's something I always begrudge buying. However... Korean skincare is literally the best thing since sliced bread lately, so who wouldn't get excited buying a mask that has a face on it, or making one out of glitter! Their ranges are also so budget friendly they're great for a little gift pack for someone or a little filler present. they're available on ASOS, so you won't be paying any taxes on getting them delivered either. I got the Gold Dust Peel off mask, which you mix up yourself so it makes it a lot more fun! 3 step nose pore strips (which I want to use myself) and the egg white sheet mask, egg whites are supposed to be amazing for your skin too. Oh K! have such a good range of products, definitely need to grab some others to try!

If you know someone who loves natural skincare, XO Balm is the perfect skincare saviour that comes in the sweetest little tub. The XO Balm is a small, compact tub with a solid moisturiser in. The moisturiser is made from coconut oil, olive oil, beeswax and chia seed oil and is great for anyone that has sensitive skin. 

Good facial scrubs are quite hard to come by, unless you're a Liz Earle devotee like mine. Proto-col do an amazing budget friendly microdermabrasion scrub that is fab for anyone who looks good facial skincare. I always gift my cousin good facial grabs like masks and scrubs, as they're things she hates buying but loves using!

Make up gifts

I love little lip balms in sets, they're handy if you're doing a gift box for someone. I tend to create little goodie boxes for my friends/family when buying gifts, so I like to have a mixture of little things too. Lypsyl now do the cutest little mirror compacts which come in a range of different flavours/colours. They're in a few of my gift sets for Christmas!

For my Mam, she doesn't tend to wear a lot of make up so she much prefers the mineral or balm types of foundations. So the Proto-col Baked Mineral Foundation is perfect for her for gifts! The foundation has light refracting effects to minimise pores and fine lines too, so she will love it. 

Inika do lovely gift sets for make up, which have a mixture of products from moisturisers, oil and serum, to make up products like blushes, mascara and lipstick. Depending who you are buying for you can get the perfect set for them. This year I grabbed the All About Glow set which a dusty pink lip and cheek cream, a rosehip serum (which works wonders for your skin) and a primer. I wish I was treating myself though, as I love their Day to Night palette!

For your older generation, Aqua Manda has been released again from the 60s. It is a vintage oriental scent which was released in the 60s and has now been rereleased again. My Grandma remembers this scent and it's quite a nostalgic gift! It's definitely not for me, however my Grandparents love it!

Have you been doing any last minute shopping this year? I'm still receiving Amazon boxes now and up until Christmas Eve. I am sooo far behind!
