The Gift Guide: Last Minute Christmas (& Giveaway!)

3 sleeps to go... how is it this close to Christmas?! Time literally has flown these last couple of months and before it's too late, I decided to do a festive blog post; as my job involves helping people buy gifts for Christmas, including last minute ones, I thought I'd round up a few of my ideas in a post to help anyone still struggling (also this can be used as a birthday present buying/wishlist ideas list, too!!)... If you're still in need of inspiration, keep reading! Plus be sure to read right to the end as I have a giveaway for you lovely lot, too!!

For Her
Urban Decay Ultimate Basics Eyeshadow Palette £38
This has been on my wishlist for ages, and I've actually asked for this one for myself! A palette featuring all matte shades - what more could you want?!
Charlotte Tilbury 1st Edition Kiss Print Make Up Bag £15
I adore Charlotte Tilbury products, plus a girl can't ever have too many make up bags, right?! Carry on reading to see how you can get your hands on one of your own!
Tanya Burr Midnight Smoulder Palette £5.99
Another eyeshadow palette (a girl can never have too many!) but this time with blue hues, which I just think is a little different and would be perfect for any YouTube fans or someone who wants to try something new!
Sleek Box of Tricks Makeup Box £25
Sleek is one of the best Drugstore make up brands out there and this would be a perfect gift for any make up lover or for someone just starting to dabble in the beauty world!
New Look Red with Gold Trim Knee High Boots £22.50
I own these myself and I get so many complements from them that I think they'd make an amazing gift... They also featured in my November favourites post, so I must like them!
Soap and Glory Take Your Pink £8
Featuring some of my favourite Soap and Glory products of all time, this is the ultimate under £10 beauty bundle!
Estella Bartlett Unicorn Necklace £19
Unicorns are very much on trend and this rose gold necklace is just too pretty to not be featured!
Estella Barlett Fox Necklace £50
I love a piece of fox-themed jewellery and this EB necklace is no exception... if you're looking for something a little more up market yet still relatively affordable, this is the one for you!

For Him

H&M Shirt £15
I love a good H&M Mens shopping trip and this shirt is definitely a winner in my eyes!
ASOS Moustache Grooming Kit £18
For anyone you know with a blooming good 'stache (or just a decent Men's grooming kit), this is perfect!
Travel Guide for the Young, Sexy and Broke 
Whilst I could have put this under unisex, I think this would make a great present for your younger male friends especially... 
Abigail's Deli Hamper £25 or more
If you're local to Essex then a trip to Abigail's deli in Ingatestone for a hamper is totally worth it, plus they're open right up until Christmas eve!
Debenhams Lightsaber Bottle Opener £9.60
With the new Star Wars film just released, this is definitely a purposeful release from Debenhams, however as far as gimmicky things go, I rather like this!
Tassimo Joy 2 Coffee Machine £57.50
As coffee machines go, I'm not much of an expert but for just under £60 this one seems to have pretty good reviews and looks pretty suave, too!
V05 Extreme Style Texture Rework Putty £4.19
The perfect stocking filler and an ideal practical gift... I know my brother and male friends go through hair putty like no tomorrow, so a restock at Christmas is always a good idea!

For Either
The Great Escape Game (Leeds) £10 or more
I know a lot of my friends are in Leeds or near to Leeds at the moment and I've heard only amazing things about Escape Games of this kind! The Leeds location offer Gift Vouchers of £10 or more and they say it is a challenging and unique experience - I may have to venture up North myself to try this out!
Spotify Premium £9.99 or more
I wouldn't be able to live without my Spotify premium account and I think it's a great last minute, super easy gift that would be appreciated by a lot of people I know!
Everyman Cinema Gift Card £20 or more
There is a new cinema in Chelmsford that involves sofas and the finer things in life, so naturally I had to include a gift card for the Everyman brand as I'd love to check it out myself!
The King Who Had to Go £25
My uncle actually wrote this book (yes, a bit of a cop out, I know!) however, whilst I'm not necessarily a history buff, I'm super interested in everything that's coming out about the Royal Family at the moment (Victoria, The Crown etc.) and whilst he is family, I actually can't wait to sit down and read this!
The 52 Lists Project £11.99
I think this is a great idea for anyone who is sentimental or just likes lists - a journal/diary book that lets the person reflect on the week by making a list!
