Luxury Gift Guide: Blogmas 2017

Plus Size Blogger Luxury Christmas Gift Guide

Hey Owlets!!

Today is day two of my week of gift guides, and today I'm bringing you my favourite category because everyone likes a bit of luxury at Christmas, don't they? In this post you'll find gifts that are over £50, so if you're looking to treat someone (like yourself) then these next set of gifts are perfect!

Plus Size Blogger Luxury Christmas Gift Guide The Jewellery Box Rose Gold Engraved Heart Necklace

Gift Idea:
Personalised Jewellery

Who For:
Female friends & Family Members

How Much:
From £6

Why This is a Great Gift:

I felt like I needed to get this one out the way first because you're probably sick of seeing this all over my social media, but I honestly can't get over this beautiful necklace from Jewellery Box is. For me, Christmas gifts are always more special is you can personalise them because it shows how much thought you've put into it. Also jewellery is always a great gift for a female friend or relative if you don't know what else to get them. The site offers engraveable gifts from £6 so it can suit any budget, but this particular necklace was £95 and is solid rose gold.

Plus Size Blogger Luxury Christmas Gift Guide Magnitone Barefaced Cleansing Brush

Gift Idea:
Magnitone Barefaced Cleansing Brush

Who For:
Beauty lovers and skin care nerds

How Much:
£90

Why This is a Great Gift:

Personally I've always struggled with my acne-prone skin, so being given the chance to have good skin is an incredible gift. The Magnitone cleansing brush vibrates to cleanse your skin more than you could do by hand, as well as exfoliating at the same time. The brush is incredibly gentle but I'm honestly shocked at how much of a difference this makes; Magnitone claim that you're able to see results from first use which I initially shrugged off because nothing works that quickly, but wow I was wrong. From the first time I used this my skin was smoother, cleaner and my makeup went on better. I can definitely tell the difference if I've not used this for a few days. If you're looking to splash out on a special someone then I can't recommend this enough!

Plus Size Blogger Luxury Christmas Gift Guide Marc Jacobs Perfume The Perfume Store

Gift Idea:
Perfume/Cologne

Who For:
Anyone!

How Much:
 £50

Why This is a Great Gift:

I feel like perfume is one of those amazing gifts for when you don't know what to get someone close to you, because you usually know what type of scents they go for and can pick something they like but haven't discovered yet. Personally one of my favourites is Marc Jacobs Daisy - I always tend to go for lighter scents so the mix of blueberries, violet, jasmine and sandalwood means that it doesn't get too sickly and you get fed up of smelling it. I found this bottle on The Fragrance Shop's website for £5 cheaper than everywhere else so it's definitely worth shopping around to get the best value for money. One thing I've learnt is that if there's a perfume that you love that's over budget, you can always ask in store if there's anything that smells similar. I've done this multiple times and it really does work.

Plus Size Blogger Christmas Luxury Gift Guide Smooth Skin IPL Hair Removal Device

Gift Idea:
IPL Hair Removal

Who For:
Beauty lovers, female relatives, anyone that likes to look after themselves.

How Much:
£199

Why This is a Great Gift:

Okay, I'll admit I was kind of terrified using this for the first time but I promise it didn't hurt. If you don't know what IPL is, it's a form of hair removal using light.  After you've shaved, you use this as a second step - the light flashes 100 times a second which stops the hair growing back. So far I've not used it enough to see a long-term difference, but it's definitely made a difference short-term. The device can be used on anyone, not just women so it's a great luxury purchase for anyone that likes to look after themselves.

Plus Size Blogger Christmas Luxury Gift Guide Zatchels Sugarcube Blue Red Handbag

Gift Idea:
High End Bag

Who For:
Friends, Close Relatives, Luxury Addicts with the budget

How Much:
£80

Why This is a Great Gift:

If you've been following me for a while you'll know that I have a not-so-healthy handbag addiction. Designer bags are absolutely my thing; in my mind there's nothing better than saving up for something you'll keep for a long time. However, I completely understand the feeling of wanting a designer bag but not being able to afford it, so this bag from Zatchels is a great compromise.

This bag is the Empire Sugarcube - at a price of £80 it's still a luxury purchase and is something that you can keep and use for a long time, but without the price tag that you could expect from the likes of Kate Spade or Michael Kors. It lacks a few of the things you'd expect in a higher end bag like the fact it's not lined, but that doesn't bother me too much as it's great quality over all and looks expensive. Zatchels products also come with the wow-factor of a higher end bag as they arrive in a dust bag with a certificate of authenticity inside, so if you're giving this as a gift for someone that can't afford a high end bag, this is definitely something that will impress.
