Christmas Gift Ideas Under 20

Bomb Cosmetics Whipped Candles, £8.99 each

I had heard about Bomb Cosmetics bath blasters but was not aware that they also did candles. And not just any candles but the cutest candle I have ever come across. I am talking about the Bomb Cosmetics Whipped Candles that scores well in terms of appearance, fragrance and functionality. The new Whipped Candles come in two delicious festive scents: Jingle Berry and Snowglobe. Both are infusions of all things Christmas. The candles are handcrafted and made using the best ingredients and essential oils. Each candle has an approx. burn time of 30 to 35 hours. Jingle Berry is a luxurious festive blend of vanilla, warm spice, musk and amber to capture the spirit of Christmas, while Snowglobe includes crisp apples combined with spicy ginger, to create a festive flurry of fragrance. These would make lovely gifts for home fragrance lovers.

Reviving Bath Soak (500gm, £5.99) and Epsom Salt Body Scrub Revive, £18.49

Westlab bath soaks are a blend of pure essential oils and their signature salts for a therapeutic bathing experience. The reviving bath soak contains Magnesium Sulphate (Epsom Salt), Eucalyptus Globulus (Eucalyptus) Leaf Oil and Mentha Viridis (Spearmint) Leaf Oil. The essential oils are absorbed via the skin, where they enter into the body, assisting in relaxing and detoxing the muscles.

Both these products would make excellent gifts for sports/fitness enthusiasts.

LiP SMACKER’s Christmas Ornament Gift Sets, £6.99 each

Lip Smacker are known for their impressive and fun range of lip balms. They have launched new Ornament multipacks featuring some of their best-sellers. You can choose from the Original Fruit collection, the icy cold Coca-Cola collection, the Chupa Chups collection or the much loved Disney Frozen collection. My favourite is the Coca-Cola range with four mouth-watering lip balms that offer the authentic taste of well-known fizzy drinks in a lip balm. They taste as good as they smell and feel!
Available at Claire’s Accessories.

Nailed London Instant Glamour Trio, £19

Nailed London fuses together fashion-forward nail shades and a patented revolutionary 3-step system, developed to closely match the look, feel, wear and gloss of a professional gel polish. It nail products give a higher level of gloss without the hassle of a UV-cured in salon gel manicure. The Instant Glamour Trio includes three shades - Knight Rider, Rosie’s Red and London Conundrum. This trio of colours is perfect to glam up even a simple outfit. London Conundrum which is the glitter nail polish can be worn alone or layered over Knight Rider (flecked petrol and charcoal tone) or Rosie's Red (a true tomato hue with a very subtle hint of berry) to customise your look.

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Limited Edition Hand Cream, 50ml RRP £3.90

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream is a classic beauty product known for its effective relief of dry, chapped hands. Neutrogena recently collaborated with Oslo based design duo Darling Clementine to create this pretty Scandi design which celebrates all there is to love about Norwegian heritage. With typical Nordic icons like a wooden cabin, gingerbread, reindeer, snow and mountains drawn featuring in the design, the limited edition hand cream tubes are very aesthetic to look at and are a must-have essential this winter season. The hand cream is available in scented and unscented versions and both work very well to hydrate and lock-in moisture deep in the skin’s surface.

Available from Boots, Tesco, Sainsbury's, Superdrug and others.
