Christmas Gift Guide | Beauty between £20 and £50

Oh, the Christmas countdown is so exciting! There's only a week now until Christmas! And I've still got a little bit more Christmas shopping to do and then I'm done. I'm determined not to be one of those last minute shoppers on Christmas Eve. Has anyone done this before? I need to get more organised. 

However, some of you may be in the same boat. I know some family members and girlfriends can be pretty picky and difficult to buy for so I've put together another gift guide featuring beauty over £20. If you're not looking to be particularly spendy then you can take a look at my previous gift guide, beauty under £10 here.
Christmas Beauty Gift Guide
First up is the Liz Earle Christmas Cleanse & Polish Skincare Gift Set, featuring Liz Earle's most popular product, the classic Cleanse and Polish in a 150ml size, complete with two pure muslin cloths. The Cleanse and Polish is encased in the most beautiful, festive Christmas keepsake drum. It would make a fantastic gift for any skincare enthusiast. You can purchase it from John Lewis for £20.75. 

The Urban Decay 24/7 Set of 5 Delirious is loaded with 5 travel sized 24/7 glide-on eye pencils in a variety of shades, from a deep purple to a metallic green and a nude brown. Four of the shades are completely new shades too. The pencils are super pigmented and as the name suggests, glide on so smoothly as the formula is so creamy. It is an absolutely wonderful gift, I'm actually rather tempted to pick one up myself. You can purchase it at Debenhams for £25.00. Isn't that a bargain? A full sized eye pencil is normally £15.50 so you're definitely getting your money's worth. 

Benefit is a great place to start with any makeup related gifts. They always have incredible gift sets this time of the year. One particular gift set that is worth the money is Benefit You're so Party, containing two full sized products of the popular Hoola Bronzer and They're real mascara. There are also two mini sized products too, the POREfessional(7.5ml) and an ultra plush lip gloss in hoola. They're all contained within a very pretty, festive partyland tin. You can purchase it from House of Fraser for £39.50. Yes, it may seem a bit on the higher end of the spectrum but it's definitely worth it. 

Another leaning towards the higher end of this gift guide is from Laura Mercier, the Matte to Metal Holiday Caviar Stick Eye Colour Collection, consisting of six generous sized caviar eye sticks(1g) in different shades and formulas, with two of them being matte and the rest shimmers. They are said to rival the likes of the By Terry ombré black stars. The Caviar sticks are individually £22 for 1.6g so I find that you're getting a bargain if you purchase this set, especially as it is priced at £39. You can purchase the collection from Space Nk. 

The Boots star gift would make a fantastic gift for those that love No7. This week the No7 Ultimate Collection has been reduced from £75.00 down to £37.50. The collection features everything from body wash to cleansing lotion and mascara. You really get a lot of bang for your buck with this set. I'm sure anyone that receives this would absolutely adore it, and of course it will last them a while too which is always a good sign. You can purchase it from Boots. 

If you're looking for a gift for your mum, sister, cousin etc, I find that a good haircare set always goes down well. The Bumble and Bumble 'Full of Cheer' Thickening Haircare Gift Set is a great place to start, especially if that person you're gifting for has very lacklustre, thin hair and wants some more bounce back into their hair. The gift set contains 3 travel sized produces, the Thickening Shampoo(60ml), Thickening Conditioner(60ml) and the Thickening Dryspun Finish Spray(150ml). I myself would absolutely love to receive this, especially as it's of a bargain price at £22. You can purchase it from John Lewis. 

If your loved one loves to indulge in the most luxurious of body products then the Laura Mercier La Petite Soufflés Souffle Body Creme Collection is perfect. In this set is a collection of 6 travel sized body creams(60ml) in various different scents. Such scents include Creme brûlée(my personal favourite), ambre vanille, fresh fig, Creme de pistache, tarte au citron and almond coconut milk. You can purchase it from Space Nk for £45. 

This Caudalie Rose de Vigne Set is absolutely suitable for any family member.  Rose is a very beautiful scent but can come across a bit strong for some. This gift contains the Rose de Vigne Fresh Fragrance, Shower Gel and Hand and Nail Cream. It is priced at the lower end of this gift guide, costing just £22.10(originally £26) here from Look Fantastic.
