SECRET SANTA GIFT GUIDE


secret santa ideas

Secret Santa gifts can be the most difficult gift to buy at this time of year, especially when a tight budget is set. So I've constructed what I hope is a helpful guide of Secret Santa style gifts all under £15 and some under 10. I've literally picked out something for every type of person working in your office to get you sorted quickly and cheaply. As usual I have linked every gift below, just simply click on the product name and it will take you straight to the page on ASOS to buy it. Happy shopping! 

NARS Mini Highlighter & Bronzer - a touch of luxury beauty for the gal in the office that loves her full face glam, and probably spends her commute into work applying her make up, and touches up at lunch time.

Avocado Smash Game - for the person that's always hosting games night, house parties or family gatherings.

Gin Made Me Do It Recipe Book - for the classy alcoholic, that probably goes out every weekend and stress drinks every night after work. 

Skinny Dip Let's Get Wasted Tumbler - for the younger gal that loves to party, or the 40 year old that thinks she's still 21 on a weekend. 

Unicorn Shower Cap - the ultimate 'joke,' gift, when you don't want to put any thought into it.

Kim K Pocket Wisdom - for the woman of the office who thinks she's Kim K, probably loves social media and buys her baby Yeezy's.

Nodding French Bulldog - for the high key dog lover, probably isn't allowed to have a dog at home but shares all the videos on Facebook. Or alternatively, they own three dogs that are dressed up on the regular. 

Position Of The Day Book - for the single guy in the office, that always has one night stands and makes sexual jokes, probably lives alone in a small flat barely decorated. Probably loves football. 

Disney 2019 Desk Calendar - for the high key Disney lover that is still mentally 12 years old and wants to get married in Disneyland. 

Mini Emergency iPhone Charger - for the tech guy, possibly very single and spends all of his money on the latest Apple releases. Or maybe he has a family and talks about the computer and printer at home and how it's always broken, but still has the latest iPhone and likes Starbucks.

F*ck Block Candle - for the potty mouthed member of staff that ends up putting ten pound in the swear jar each week. Or, the person that has a messy desk full of old coffee cups and photo frames.

Crep Protect Spray - for the guy that's mad for the latest and expensive trainers, probably collects Yeezys or designer sneaks and brags about them. Probably thinks he's the shit. Probably a player.

BEAUTYBAY COLOUR THEORY PALETTES REVIEW & SWATCHES

beauty bay identity palette review

The beauty site we all know and love, (and I have watched grow into a huge company over the years,) gave us all what we wanted. Three amazing, affordable eyeshadow palettes that include everything the beauty world wanted. Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll probably be pretty familiar with this magical trio - say hello to OriginIdentity and Evolve. Three palettes, containing a very generous 42 shades, (wow...) at an even more generous price point of £25.00. Not only that, but these babes also contain a huge mirror large enough to complete your full face of make up in. This is the Colour Theory family.

BEAUTY BLENDER BOUNCE FOUNDATION

new beauty blender foundation review
So here we have it folks, the worlds most perfect foundation - a big statement, but the truest ever spoke. Despite the backlash upon its release, and having loved Beauty Blenders for so many years and never applying my base with anything else, I had to have this. I waited weeks after the initial release in the US, and we finally have it in the UK at Cult Beauty. You bet it was worth the wait, and the price of £32.00. Shockingly, not the most expensive foundation I've ever purchased but certainly far from drugstore. This is Beauty Blenders first make up product, and if this is foreshadowing what's to come then I'm very excited.
