Festive seasons, shopping and gift ideas

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all well and have had an enjoyable weekend.

The festive season is almost upon us. I thought it would be nice to put some gift ideas for the festive season together and have a few of these posts throughout the next few months. Truly, I cannot believe that we are only a few months away from the commencement of a new year. Where has this year gone?!

For the most organised amongst us, shopping for the festivities has most likely already begun if not completed! I was surprised to hear that some already start planning for the coming year festivities many, many months before. I on the other hand, do not usually plan my shopping trips or putting together gift ideas or making these purchases super early. I am indeed someone who likes to give the presents purchased as soon as possible due to the sheer excitement! I want to see their reaction, whether they like it or not etc etc. I don’t really like keeping gifts in my possession for too long… they must be delivered without delay! :D

So, for my first gift ideas, I will focus on beauty… ofcourse ;)

Choices, selection and variety

Below are a couple of products that I bought for a colleague last year. The idea was to get something, cute, relevant, and budget friendly.

A palette is usually a lovely idea for a friend who likes makeup, especially if not certain which shades they prefer. Last year, I went for the Makeup Revolution eyeshadow palette ‘What you waiting for?’ which contains 18 shades in total; 12 shimmer and 6 matte. The names of the shades are… well let’s say… a little on the naughty/ provocative side. I’m not a huge fan of giving makeup obscene names for various reasons such as exposure to children…but for now we digress! Nonetheless, the shades looked beautiful.


I paired this palette with a striking purple nail polish from Collection. I don’t think one can go wrong with some nail paints from Collection. I got this in the shade ‘Purplicious’. 

Wrapping the gift nicely also adds a special touch to gift giving. Why not try some soft gold wrapping paper to add some elegance to your gift.

Have you commenced your festivity shopping/ gift giving ideas? Let us know in the comments below :)
