Oh Christmas- the time of shopping for your loved ones and giving gifts to the most important people in your life. My favourite part of the season is to see the reactions of those I give presents to.

For that reason, I love to put lots of effort into my selections for everyone and make it useful and unique to the person. That being said, there are some gifts that most beauty obsessed girls would love and I wanted to share these 6 foolproof ideas with you in case you're stuck on what to get someone.
1. Benefit The Bronze of Champions Set
Any woman who uses makeup would greatly enjoy this gift because it's perfect for everyone; from beginners who are trying to figure out what products they love to makeup experts testing out new things. This pack allows for the gift receiver to try six different products (plus a brush). This means that there is more opportunity for them to like a product you have given them. If you want to splurge for somebody you could handwrite a giftcard offering to buy them a full-sized product of their choice out of the six different products they tried. Head over to my YouTube channel for a chance to win the Benefit Primping With The Stars set.

2. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum
This is a product that I mentioned in my High End Gift Guide. A beautiful piece of skincare is always an amazing gift to receive and anyone, regardless of their age would love this. It's the perfect product that both minimises premature ageing and actively works to repair aged skin.

3. TBN 5 Days of Colour Lip Balms
With a pack of five lip colours, you have many opportunities to choose a colour they love unlike gifting just one and having your fingers crossed it's a shade they would wear. This set is perfect if you aren't too sure what colours the person usually goes for. With lots of lip pack options for every budget you can spend $15 on this one by TBN or $55 on a MAC set, of course depending on how much you would like to spend. However, if it's your sister or mother who you know very well then consider putting together a personalised pack of lip colours you think that they will enjoy.

4. NARS Pressed Powder
Something that might seem a little personal and with a few risk factors like skin undertone and colour, is actually a really lovely personalised gift. The NARS Pressed Powder is a product I want all of my friends and family to try because it's so incredible but the price is something I know a lot of them wouldn't pay. So gifting products such as these are great to surprise a woman in your life because it's a treat that they otherwise wouldn't spoil themselves with. As mentioned in my high end holiday gift guide.

5.OPI Cheers to the Holidays Nail Polish Set
Nail polish is a great gift for any girl because most of us use it and it's something we will get heaps of uses out of. These mini sets are perfect for gifting if you aren't sure what colour to go for because it gives you four opportunities to pick a colour they like. I love how this particular set includes 3 festive colours and a top coat because it gives variety and includes a practical polish you can use over any shade. An additional gift you could give at a later date is a full-sized bottle of their favourite polish from the set, once they've used up the mini.

6. Lush Holiday Products
Lush offer pre-made sets of soaps and bath products for convenience or you could personalise one and make your own pack. Go in there and choose 3 or 5 product you think they will love then package it in a box with some tissue paper and it makes for the perfect gift.
