Christmas gifting made easy

Wednesday, 29th November, 2017 5:27pm

Christmas gifting doesn’t need to be super expensive.

Stocking fillers are typically priced below €15 and, if you are as old as I am, then I am almost positive that your memories of these are things like pencil cases and maybe a book.

This week, I am looking at gifts under €35, and if your list is lengthy, then you will get the best value in your local pharmacy.

IsaDora Bronzing Kit Christmas Set (€9) comes with a travel size bronzing powder in terracotta bronze and a free kabuki brush and miniature mascara – to fit the teeniest party purses! It's a perfect stocking filler for a glam on the go gal like myself.

The brand e.l.f. recently hit Irish shelves and it is a massive hit with all ages. Firstly, we have the e.l.f. Double the Drama Eye Kit (€25), from brows to lashes, everything you need to build an eye-opening look is in this kit! The Eye Enhancing Mascara is a light reflecting, metallic mascara that is designed to enhance and compliment the colour of your eyes.

The Baked Eyeshadow Trio is a lightweight baked formula that can be worn wet for a vibrant effect or dry for softer pigment. The Lock on Liner and Brow Cream glides on smoothly to sculpt, shade and define brown while the Shape and Style Wax Pencil can be used to sculpt shape and tame brows. e.l.f. Cosmetics is available from Penneys and pharmacies across Cork.

Ziaja is a pharmacy-only brand that offers exceptional value for money for all age groups. The Goat’s Milk Gift Set (€14.99) contains three top-selling Ziaja goat’s milk heroes – a day cream, night cream and award-winning hand and nail cream.

The Manuka Skincare Gift Set (€13.99) caters specifically for combination to oily complexions and combines three unique skincare products to cleanse, hydrate and restore the perfect balance - contains manuka tree day cream, manuka tree cleansing gel and manuka tree face toner.

The Jasmine Skincare Gift Set (€19.99) is a collection of jasmine skincare treats that are guaranteed to smooth away concerns about ageing. This gift set comes with three essential skincare products - jasmine day cream, jasmine night cream and a jasmine micellar water.

The Men's Gift Set (€10.99) contains men's soothing moisturising cream, men's soothing shower gel and men's anti-perspirant.

Roger and Galet is famous for its pretty sets and the fragrance duo set comes in a lovely keepsake gold tin that you could use afterwards for storage with a wellbeing water and body lotion (€22.50).

Phyto was the first all-natural haircare brand and its exquisite, all-encompassing range of supplements, shampoos, hydrators and treatments have been painstakingly developed to nurture every hair type and texture – so whether yours is dry, frizzy, weakened, fine or thinning – Phyto has a super-charged botanical solution.

The Phtyo Phytodensia Set (€33) includes the Phytodensia Plumping Serum and Phytodensia Plumping Shampoo and is for anyone with thinning, devitalised hair.

For the make-up addict, try the new luxurious GLOWrious Highlighting and Bronzing Palette (€15.95) which has three textures that practically melt into the skin to give it a radiant glow. It is an absolute must have to help you through the festive season to get your skin gleaming!

The palette is available in two different shades – rose addiction and gold. It is a gorgeous trio of an illuminating bronzer, one soft highlighter and one metallic highlighter. Your skin will have a nice subtle sheen and a sun-kissed shimmer.

Next week we will look at Luxe Gift Sets.
