Although it was fun making a Luxury Christmas Wishlist (read here), I decided to create a more realistic list of things I would love to get for Christmas.
Some of these things are either old favourites, products I love which need repurchasing or just things I have always wanted but never got round to buying for myself.
My all time favourite perfume! I’ve been wearing this since I was in college when I was spritzed in Boots and have been hooked ever since.
Although I have a variety of perfumes which I love, I would say this is my signature scent which I always go back to. It’s such a long-lasting, unique scent with notes of vanilla and white musk and smells amazing!
I just love the colours of these lipsticks and it’s rare that you get a gift set where you love all the colours. But this set caught my eye, as they are all my favourite colours for lipsticks.
They are shimmer versions of three of their best sellers – which is even more appealing to me as I prefer a shimmery finish rather than matte.
I’m a massive bareMinerals fan and when I saw this eyeshadow palette I loved it instantly. It contains 12 eyeshadows and has a pull-out compact which you can interchange with three different colours.
I love the idea of this, as it would be perfect for weekends away when you can choose three colours to take – instead of packing a full palette – and just pop the small compact in your make-up bag.
The pull-out compact has a mirror in it too and the colours are all really wearable with soft lilacs, khaki-browns and natural base and contour shades. At only £35 I think that’s such great value for what you get. I love it!
I always want this when I see it, but it’s not something I ever remember or think of to buy. Also, if I was going to spend £35 in Pandora I would probably choose a charm over an opener, but as this is my wishlist I wanted to put it on as something I have always wanted but never got round to buying for myself.
I always chip my nails when I open the clasps on my Pandora bracelets, so this would be great for me as it opens them without having to use your nails. It’s also really pretty and can be carried on a key chain or just tucked away in your purse so you always have it on hand.
I absolutely love Lush products and always get excited when I receive some as a gift. This box is an absolute bargain too as it’s £22.95 and contains 5 items including a bath bomb, body lotion and shower scrub.
My favourite Lush products are their bath bombs and shower scrubs so when I saw the contents of this box I knew it was for me!
My HG mascara and I always repurchase this when it runs out. I have quite short lashes and can really build volume with this and my lashes always stay curled throughout the day.
I haven’t been able to repurchase this as I’ve been budgeting for Christmas and I also have other mascaras I’m enjoying using up first – but as of yet nothing rivals this for me, so I’ve popped it on my Christmas list.
I always love a new scarf and this one is gorgeous! The dog-tooth pattern against the blue trimmed border makes this scarf really unique and eye-catching. I love the added touch of the blue trim and it makes this scarf really stand out.
A good weekend away bag is essential and I love this one from Cath Kidston. It would also be a great gym bag as its’s not too big or bulky.
I have a few bags from Cath Kidston and they are such amazing quality and a great investment as they last. It also gains points for folding away into a little pouch for when not in use – so cute!
I’ve popped this Tangle Teezer in my list as something I want but never get round to buying! I think this one is great because it has a cover which goes on, so you can carry it in your handbag without it getting dirty.
I always take a brush out with me as I like to brush my hair throughout the day so this would be perfect for me. The metallic pink colour is gorgeous and definitely goes in it’s favour!
If I could only have one thing off my list it would definitely be these. I love Adidas trainers and I’ve had so many styles in the past including Superstar and Stan Smith, but that was many years ago and I really need to invest in a new pair!
These ones with the navy heel patch are my current favourite but I can’t decide between these and the green heel patch – i’m still undecided. I’m saving up for them so it’s probably a good job I can’t buy them yet anyway!
Whats’s on your Christmas list this year?
