It’s that time again…Gift Guides!
This year, I’ve decided to split it into three guides- For Her, For Him and For Foodies.
The majority of my readers are female so it made perfect sense to have a guide For Her- whether that be presents for your mum/sister/auntie/friend or pre-Christmas treats for yourself. Same goes with a guide For Him, where you’ll find perfect gifts for your dad, brother, uncle or friends.
If you’re a regular reader of Earth To Emma, you’ll know I like to do foodie reviews, usually checking out the restaurants and bars around Greater Manchester and sometimes further afield. These posts tend to be quite popular, so I thought what better than to do a Foodie Gift Guide.
So, to kick things off, here is my Gift Guide For Her! A collection of my favourite beauty and lifestyle picks from 2017, the gifts are excellent for the females in your life (or like I said earlier, a pre-Christmas treat for yourself!). All the gifts I have picked out fit well into the “stocking filler” category with the majority coming in under £10- perfect for any secret Santa gifts you need to buy for your beauty loving colleague.
Huda Beauty Obsessions, £25, Cult Beauty
Huda Beauty dropped their Obsessions palettes earlier this month. The four palettes- Warm Brown, Mauve, Smokey and Electric- contain nine pigment-packed shades that allow you to sample the delights of the much sought-after brand. The shadows are creamy, blendable and have minimal fallout, making them a true must-have for any beauty lover. The perfect stocking filler, the Beauty Obessions palettes are smaller than the originals, making them the perfect palette for travel.
Elegant Touch Opulence Collection in Ruby Royal, £8.95, Superdrug
I never used to be a nail girl myself until I discovered Elegant Touch. Lasting up to 10 days, the ping-proof glue on nails are a fraction of the price of a salon visit and are just as good, you really can’t tell the difference. The new Opulence Collection feature the gorgeous Ruby Royal, with an extreme metallic finish in the deepest ruby red, these bang-on-trend statement nails will complete any NYE party look.
imPRESS Manicure One-Step Gel, £7.99, Superdrug
Perfect for people who like a shorter nail, imPRESS Manicure’s One-Step Gel nails are a gel nail breakthrough. With no glue needed, these nails are hassle free and are safe to use on natural use with no damage. Each kit contains 24 colour & 6 accent nails, prep pad, a mini file and instructions.
Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Kiss, £54.50 (50ml), Very
The limited-edition fragrance is inspired by Marc Jacobs’ Resort fashion collections and is a luminous fragrance of fruit and floral. The bottle is just as vibrant, bold and striking as the fragrance with a shocking hue of bright pink graduation. Top notes: Blackcurrant, Pink Grapefruit, Pineapple. Heart notes: White Freesia, Jasmine Petals, Raspberry. Base Notes: Cedarwood, Skin musk, Ambrox.
KISS Lash Couture Faux Mink False Eyelashes, £7.99, Superdrug
I’ve spoken about these lashes before and I knew I had to add them into this gift guide. The KISS Lash Couture Faux Mink falsies are lightweight, comfortable and cruelty-free. The sexy, dramatic lashes can be worn up to 10x and are amazing value for money.
The Girlboss Workbook, £9.99, Amazon
If you’re familiar with Sophia Amoruso or Girlboss, whether that be the book or the Netflix series, you NEED a copy of The Girlboss Workbook. A graphic guide that’s filled with exercises, illustrations and plenty of scribble room, The Girlboss Workbook is designed to help women achieve their dreams through career wisdom. Use it as a diary, a mood board and a tool to organise and achieve.
