Christmas Gifting 2023 – The Most Luxurious Gifts Handpicked By Me

Sunday 26 November 2023

[Some products were gifted to me as PR samples – these have been marked with an '*']

Christmas is only a matter of weeks away, and if I'm honest, this year has been the most organised I've ever been. Ever. I had most of my Christmas presents bought by the end of August, which I guess isn't a hard feat considering I have a tiny family that really only comprises of my mum and cat. But either way, I like to think of myself as pretty prepared and organised... I am a Virgo after all. 

But being a bit of a self-confessed gift-snob, I'm quite picky when it comes to buying presents, which is why I thought I'd put together another of my annual Christmas gift guides. And boy oh boy, is this a good'un.

Drybar Buttercup Blow-Dryer

The ultimate blow-drying tool, the Drybar Buttercup Blow-Dryer* boasts of having an ultra-powerful 1875 watt motor and Ionic Technology that provides you with the shiniest, frizz-free blow-dries in 20% less time than most professional dryer. The RRP of this beauty is £139, with discounts coming in thick and fast as we approach December. Giving the gift of a good hair day has never been easier. Trust me when I say at-home blow-dries can be just as chic and long-lasting – I'm speaking from experience with Drybar's tools!

Lust Home

I've been a fan of Lust Home for a few years now thanks to their gorgeous wallpaper offering. I've made over my living room with their wallpapers on three separate occasions – and I still can't get enough! Not only do they specialise in wallpaper, but they also make paint too. And now, in a new U-turn, Lust also stock cushions – and guess what? They only match their wallpaper! Yes, really. And yes, I am obsessed. If you want to give a quirky gift this Christmas, why not gift some wallpaper and a matching cushion? I am obsessed with the Tigerlily Cushion in Emerald Green, Pink and Orange*. Retailing at £28, the cushion is well-worth the money thanks to the silky satin front and striking design. 

Yeti Rambler

What do you buy the girl that's got everything? An insulated travel mug of course. These kind of mugs are having a moment, and I can totally see why. Easy-to-use, encourages you to drink more, super stylish, and keeps your drinks hot or cold – what's not to love? The Yeti Rambler* is a must-have in my eyes, whether you commute into work or work from home, this must-have mug will be a welcome addition in your life. 

LUSH Snow Fairy Collection

If you've read my blog for some time, you'll know how much of a huge fan of LUSH I am, so it's probably no surprise that they'd pop up here. The LUSH Snow Fairy collection is a total must in my household at Christmas – it's just peak festive vibes, right? My top three picks from this year's Snow Fairy collection (which I swear grows each year) has got to be the Snow Fairy Shower Gel* in the 1kg size (RRP: £39), The Big Snow Fairy Roll* (RRP: £20), and the Snow Fairy LUSH Melt* (RRP: £6.50). Be sure to check out my full review of the LUSH Christmas Buds Advent Calendar* – although it's currently sold out, you can still nab some of the individual products from within it, and they'd honestly make such welcome gifts this year for any LUSH lover – so be sure to have a gander!

Coach Crossbody Bag

Unfortunately, I can't find my exact bag anywhere online – but I can however vouch for Coach. I purchased my first Coach back two years ago and have been hooked ever since – they really are the epitome of chic designer bags that stand the test of time thanks to their durability and versatility. In my eyes, other designer bags just don't hit the spot quite like Coach does, and that is why I'm such a massive fan. If you're looking to treat yourself this Christmas, or perhaps treat a loved one, then Coach is the only bag brand you should be looking at.

Hot Tools Pro Artists Black Gold Curl Bar 25mm

The Hot Tools Pro Artists Black Gold Curl Bar 25mm* is a work of art that creates literal works of art out of your tresses. Retailing at £115, this hair-styling gem puts an ergonomic twist on traditional curling iron design. The angle takes pressure off shoulders and arms while styling — meaning less stress and more styles. Smart features — like the vibrating built-in curl timer — also help you style with ease. I love how easy it is to curl my hair with this tool, and honestly find it really innovative thanks to the ergonomic design – something I hadn't really seen before in a curling device before. 

Trigwell Cosmetics The Puff Pouch

The ultimate solution to keep your Trigwell Velvet Powder Puffs safe and clean wherever you go. Designed especially for Velvet Powder Puff lovers, the Trigwell Puff Pouch* is a handy carry-case for your powder puff when on-the-go, on holiday, or enjoying a staycation. 

DuoBoots Jeane Knee High Boots

These gorgeous Jeane Knee High Boots in Black Suede from DuoBoots* were made for walking, strutting, dancing, dashing and looking fabulous. I'm a bag girl at heart, but when autumn/winter rolls around, I just can't resist a nice pair of boots. And when they're knee high? Well, I'm sold. Inspired by riding boots, these timeless beauties will team with a variety of outfits, meaning they're the perfect gift to give this Christmas – especially if you're buying for somebody who is very fashion-conscious. With a stretch panel at the back for the perfect fit, and a memory foam insole ensures maximum comfort, these tall, black leather knee-high boots are also available in eight different calf sizes to accommodate narrow, standard and wide fits. These boots retail at £295, but keep an eye on their site for discounts.

Although this gift guide hasn't been my biggest or most jam-packed, I definitely think it's one of my best, as every single thing within in has been hand-picked by moi – so I can honestly guarantee that they'd make wonderful gifts for any fashion or beauty lover!

Hope you all have a fabulous run up to Christmas – catch up soon.... expect a lengthy post marking my 10 years of blogging... coming soon!
