Last Minute Holiday Gift Guide

By Tuesday, December 09, 2014 , , , , , , , , , ,

The holidays are around the corner, so here are some last minute gift ideas for you.

For those who love Benefit there are two great sets out there that I think will please just about any makeup fan. 3 Scoops O' Sexy is available at Sephora for $50 Cad and features three full sized tinted lip balms and three mini lip/cheek tints. The best part, you can break them up into 3 sets and give them to 3 people.  For those of you that want to give something similar but can't get to a Sephora, Shoppers Drug Mart has Sweet Tintations. This set has two tinted lip balms and two mini lip/cheek tints for $30 Cad. I personally have the 3 Scoops O' Sexy and am really happy with it.

2.Real Techniques:
I am an avid fan of the Real Techniques brushes and have given them time and time again as gifts. On top of their regular sets, right now there is a limited edition duo fibre brush set out there that is a must have. I have all the sets and a few single brushes, they make fantastic gifts and you can pick the sets up at your local Walmart (or online) or you can choose from the entire collection over at

3.The Body Shop:
The Body Shop always has great holiday scents and sets. Right now there are some great sales on too.   The new Glazed Apple scent is getting a lot of attention (I'm guessing the intriguing bath jelly has a bit to do with that) but I am a loyal fan of Frosted Cranberry scent. There are lots of sets with their everyday classic scents you can't loose if you give a gift from them. In fact right now there is a sale with 2 mini gift sets for $15, what a great price.

Vichy knows how to create a great package deal. There are 6 value sets out so you are sure to find something perfect for just about everyone on your list. Got a man on your list? The Vichy Homme Sensi-Balm Gift Set will run you just $29 Cad. Dry skin, get them the Aqualia Thermal Gift Set, for only $38.50 Cad (my favourite line this time of year), it has 3 great product in it to help keep their skin hydrated in this horrid weather. Are they worried about wrinkles? The LiftActiv Serum 10 Gift Set for 57 Cad might be just what they need. Its got 4 great LiftActiv products to help fight the signs of aging.  Do they have more than one type of aging skin concern (firmness, wrinkles)?  The Neovadiol Gift Set for $55 Cad is a great steal with four items in it.  Do they suffer from pigmentation issues? Try the ProEVEN Gift Set its only $57.50 Cad and has three products in it (great deal). Need a gift for someone suffering with acne? The Normaderm Gift Set is only $39 Cad and even has a handy travel spot treatment in it. What I really like about the Vichy is their incredible value, sometimes you get 2 or 3 items for free.

Flower beauty is the makeup child of actress Drew Barrymore and it is finally here in Canada  at Walmart. I've been impressed with what I've seen on other blogs so I personally ran out and got a lot of stuff just for myself. For the holidays Flower has a whole bunch of neat gift sets out. I nabbed Color in the Lines Mini Chubby Lip Set for $9.  If your looking for a fragrant gift Flower has 3 fragrances, all of which have their own gift sets or you can even get all 3 in a mini form in the Flower Fragrance Discovery Set for just $19 at Walmart. There even is a neat set with a brush, an eyeshadow palette and a mascara (Eye See You Eye Beauty Set) for $19. Great values for all the sets and easily found online or in store which makes the whole finding the perfect gift even easier.

So that is my recommendations....hopefully you find something for everyone on your list.
