I recently used Holland & Barrett Gift Finder to… yep, you guessed it, find gifts! I found so many cute little gift sets at such an affordable price that I decided to make a little stocking full of quality beauty products for my beauty fanatic family member (Obvs staying a bit hush-hush incase she’s reading!). But I set myself a budget and I used it wisely! (Of course, forever the sensible one with money!)
I managed to get 7 different items and it only just about fits in the stocking - there’s a couple of bulky items but that’s always good for bulking out a Christmas stocking! The stocking is her main present so I wanted to get some substantial gift sets as well as treating her to other little bits.
Burt's Bees Bauble, £6.99
Let’s start with something festive! It’s the Burt’s Bees Christmas Bauble tin which contains a lip balm and a hand salve. I think beauty baubles are such a great idea. I bought a few last year and I let my mum and sister pick them off the tree on Christmas morning as their first presents to open. SO cute!
Burt's Bees Ultimate Care Hand Cream, £9.99
Whilst we’re on the subject of Burt’s Bees, I picked out a fairly big stocking filler. Burt’s Bees Naturally Nourished gift set contains 2 100% natural lip balms and 1 Ultimate Care Hand Cream. Some winter beauty essentials right there!
Dr.Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Lip Balm, £3.49
I didn't realise that I had ordered so many lip balms so I might keep this one for myself and buy another stocking filler in replacement. Dr.Organic products are great, I've only just start using the products for the past couple of months. Like with most (if not all) products from Holland & Barrett, the entire Dr. Organic range doesn’t contain parabens, mineral oils, GM ingredients, by-products from animals, SLS, perfumes or artificial fragrances. They formulate with the finest natural, bioactive, organic ingredients and they don’t test on animals. Such a great brand!
Andalou Willow Bark Pure Pore Serum, £6.99
Good quality serums are often really expensive but it's worth having a look in Holland & Barretts where you can get quality serums made with quality ingredients for an affordable price! Serums help protect your skin from the harsh elements of winter and I think any lady will appreciate it in a gift set or present!
Weleda Almond Mini Trio, £8.50
This is the second main present of the stocking filler. It's beautifully packaged in a brown box tied with a cute little bow. Inside the box are three skin and body products; a milk cleanser, face cream, and body lotion - all containing nourishing almond oil to help soothe, calm, and protect.
Scentchips in Fruit Smoothie, £2.99
You can mix and match these wax scent chips, or buy them in a pack for £2.99. I chose the Fruit Smoothie which contains 2 strawberry, 2 vanilla, and 2 pina colada Scentchips. The wax themselves don't smell that strong to me but they release a nice scent when burnt. It's not strong or overpowering but it does linger around the room. A great option for those who don't like a heavily fragranced candle.
Scentchips Wax Burner, £5.95
Ok, so I do this thing every year where I buy presents for people but end up keeping it for myself. This is one of them! I had a packet of lavendar Scentchips but nothing to burn in so I couldn't help but use it! Oops! But at £5.95, I can totally buy another one to replace it. I think that this wax burner plus a few packets of Scentchips make a great standalone present for someone but it looks impressive as a stocking filler!
All 7 products came to £44.90 and are available to buy from Holland & Barrett.
