With so much on offer this year in beauty, we could not cram it all into one guide, so here is another one featuring more of our favourites.
Yardley English Rose Gift Set
The scent of rose is second to none, delicate, fragrant, floral and pretty, something perfectly captured in this fabulous gift set from Yardley.
Presented in a lovely box is a 50ml bottle of English Rose Eau de Toilette and a 75ml bottle of English Rose Deodorising Body Spray. The perfume bottle is elegant and sophisticated with straight lines and a clear glass, it seems understated, leaving the perfume to speak for itself. The body spray however is beautifully decorated with roses, the bottles compliment each other and will look pretty on any dressing table.
Looks aside, it is the aroma that is the star in this gift set. Whilst English roses are the overall signature of the perfume and body spray, there are many other notes within that compliment the divine fragrance. Top notes of citrus, compliment the low velvety tones of musk and patchouli that are in no way overwhelming, whilst magnolia, violet and cassis, are mixed in to create the overall beautiful aroma of Yarldey English Rose.

Pout For Perfection
This year it is all about metallics when it comes to make up, and whilst we may all love a little Christmas red in our lives when the Christmas season is upon us, we all know we are hooked on this years sparkling trend.
Sleek Make Up have released a fantastic set called Pout for Perfection and it consists of two items, the Matte Me Metallic Lip Cream in Roman Copper and Highlighting Palette in Solstice. This set is absolutely stunning!
Matte Me Lip Cream in Roman Copper is not just on trend, it is incredibly beautiful. Apply the Lip Cream as normal and get a vibrant pop of copper, or use a finger and gently smooth the cream into your lips, for a more subtle look, either way it looks amazing.
The Highlighting Palette is equally pretty featuring two matte highlighters in cream and a soft, light golden brown and two shimmering pressed powers in copper and pale pink.
Incredibly elegant and sophisticated, this set is perfect for the Christmas Season!
Available from Boots for £12.50
Hershey’s Gift Set
If you have someone in your life who is not just a beauty lover, but a person who just adores chocolate, then we have found the right gift for them this year, Hershey’s Gift Set.
The gift pack comes in a lovely box that straight away lets you see just what goodies are inside, two lip balms and two lip glosses. The beauty of this gift pack is the way the containers are designed and the flavours of the balms and glosses.
The Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup flavour balm not only tastes fabulous when you apply it, but it actually looks like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup! Then there is the Hershey’s Syrup flavoured Lip Gloss, again lick lipping tasty, but this time presented in an adorable mini syrup bottle. There is a more standard looking tube for the Hershey’s Kisses lip balm that tastes just like the chocolates, but finally there is the Jolly Rancher Lip Gloss. Again, so delicious it’s hard to remember that it is a gloss, but the clear gloss contains little balls of red and green.
All in all, this is a great set to gift anyone who has a penchant for chocolate.
Available from Topshop and Debenhams for £8
