Tis The Season To Sparkle | A Girly Christmas Gift Guide

 

After reading a few pretty girly Christmas gift guides and watching some on YouTube, I was really inspired to pop together one of my own as it’s one of my favourite blog posts to create. I love the magic of picking out a special gift for someone, wrapping it in gorgeous gift paper with satin bows and placing it under the twinkling Christmas tree waiting for them to open on Christmas morning. I’ve found some really lovely pink and girly pieces that I couldn’t wait to show you and I wouldn’t blame you if you popped it all on to your own Santa’swishlist…

Pink Bubble Bath

The first item that I found is a pretty little pink bubble bath that comes in the most adorable bottle from The Card Factory. It’s a lovely shimmery soft pink colour and the bottle is shaped like a little Christmas bauble and has a pretty white and gold star tag. It has a gorgeous soft floral scent and would make the perfect little stocking filler or Secret Santa gift as it’s so inexpensive too.

Marshmallow Shower Gel

Another inexpensive little stocking filler idea is this Marshmallow Shower Gel from Imperial Leather which I have been using for ages. I love the cute baby pink packaging with the Kawaii style marshmallow illustrations and the scent is so sugary, sweet and yummy. If you know someone who loves all of their pampering products, you could add this to a pretty hamper with a cosy pair of pyjamas, socks, a face mask, a bath bomb and some other little girly pamper evening essentials for a sweet and thoughtful gift.

Unicorn Christmas Eve Box

I came across this whimsical unicorn Christmas Eve box whilst browsing in Tesco and even though it’s actually meant for children (ssh!), I thought many of you would still like it too. It comes in the most magical pastel rainbow box complete with shooting stars and unicorn illustrations and it contains everything you need for a cosy Christmas Eve. I love the soft pink and white candy stripe fluffy socks which are perfect to pop on with some cosy pink loungewear and there is everything you need to make a fairytale unicorn hot chocolate with an adorable pastel unicorn mug, hot chocolate powder, mini marshmallows and candy canes. There is even a sweet little pink iced unicorn sugar cookie too to enjoy whilst sipping on your hot chocolate. Perfect for a unicorn princess!

Coffee Til Cocktails Tumbler

I came across this cute little pink coffee tumbler in B&M and thought it would make the loveliest little gift for a Starbucks or Costa lover! It’s the prettiest baby pink shade and has ‘coffee til cocktails‘ written on the side in a pretty silver script font. It’s the perfect gift for someone who is never without their coffee as it’s a lovely size for taking out and about with you if you need your vanilla latte fix! You could even add their favourite coffee, syrups and a little spoon to make it into a cute gift.

Sass And Belle Swan Ornament

I love this little swan Christmas tree decoration which I purchased from Sass And Belle last year and I thought it would also make an enchanting little stocking filler for a girly girl who loves swans. The decoration features the prettiest fairytale swan and cygnet adorned with a gold sparkly beak, black eyelashes and pink blushing cheeks. This little Christmas tree decoration is tied with a dainty pink ribbon and the candyfloss pink glittery detailed wing on the swan is so magical too.

Pink Fairytale Mugs 

Another simple but sweet gift idea is to make a personalised mug using some adorable clipart. I made a mug with this pretty pink fairytale princess waving a magical cloud wand which is one of the lovely enchanting illustrations by Haute Glam Design. I also made these dreamy Cinderella carriage and snowy swan versions too and accessorized them with cute pink bows. You could also add the gift recipient’s name in a glittery script font to make it even more special and stuff them with some festive coffee, mini marshmallows or a gift card for their favourite shop. 

Lily Flame Wax Melts in Sugar Rush & Fairy Dust

I have really enjoyed using wax melts this year as a little alternative to candles so I thought it would be nice to share some from a brand called Lily Flame. I was drawn to the fairytale princessy pink packaging with the gold accents but the scents themselves are also gorgeous. I picked up Sugar Rush which smells really sweet and has notes of strawberry, candyfloss, vanilla and a subtle musky undertone. I also chose Fairy Dust which has a lovely sparkling powder puff scent with notes of lily, rose and vanilla. They look so lovely to display as pretty girly decor and Lily Flame also do a lovely range of candles and diffusers too so there are some gorgeous gift options.

Fluffy Pink Ear Muffs

For me, the winter time is all about getting bundled up in cosy pastel knitwear, cute bobble hats, snuggly scarves and pretty mittens so when I came across these adorable pink fluffy ear muffs in Home Bargains, I thought they would be perfect. We’ve been lucky enough to have a couple of snow days recently so these were perfect for keeping cosy whilst building a snowman and drinking hot chocolate with melted marshmallows under the cascading snowflakes. They also come in a lovely snowy white colour too! 

Pandora Charms & Bracelet

For a slightly more expensive and special gift, a Pandora bracelet with a couple of sweet little charms is sure to set any girl’s heart aflutter. I love my Pandora bracelet and I have really enjoyed adding lots of pretty and girlie charms like pink cupcakes, pretty love hearts and spring flowers. I have a classic silver bracelet which I bought from the Poetic Blooms collection a few years ago but they also have some other lovely girly styles available just now. At the top of my charm wishlist are a couple of pretty pink Disney ones with the Fantasyland charm and also the Sleeping Beauty Castle charm. I decided to feature this gorgeous silver love heart charm which has ‘mummy‘ engraved on it which I think would make such a beautiful gift and you can personalise them to add any name that you wish. The princessy packaging with the pretty gift bags and dainty pink satin ribbon bows just adds the perfect finishing touch too! 

Victor & Rolf Flowerbomb Gift Set

My husband spoilt me with this beautiful snowflake Christmas set from Victor & Rolf last year but I wanted to feature it in this gift guide as they always bring out a gorgeous new limited edition gift set of Flowerbomb each year. I adore the soft floral scent of the perfume which has notes of bergamot, freesia, jasmine, rose and orchid and smells just like a whimsical florist shop. Last year, the gift set looked like a fairytale winter wonderland and the box itself was shaped like a snowflake with beautiful baby pink and white details accentuated with the classic black Viktor & Rolf branding and the whole box is dusted in princessy glitter and finished with a gorgeous satin pink flower on the opening. When you open the box, there is a stunning glittering snowflake display with the perfume sitting on a little tier and it also contains a shower gel and a body lotion in iridescent pink packaging which would be the perfect size for travelling. This year, the box is a beautiful star shape in a princessy pink and is covered is sparkly silver stars and the perfume bottle is also embellished with glittering stars. It’s a beautiful gift idea and definitely one that I would love to unwrap from under my Christmastree! 

Baby Pink Hairdryer

Another slightly pricier but more practical gift is this gorgeous baby pink hairdryer from T3. I’d had this on my wishlist for ages and eventually decided to splurge on it earlier this year whilst they had some money off. It’s a gorgeous sugary pastel pink colour and has pretty chrome detailing and it’s also really lightweight so you don’t get a sore arm when blowdrying your hair. As much as I love the look of this hairdryer, it’s also really good and quick to use so I would definitely recommend for princessy locks! 

Beauticology Magical Palace Gift Set

I absolutely adore the Unicorn Candy range from Baylis & Harding as the products are just dreamy and the packaging is so beautiful so I wanted to feature this Magical Palace gift set as it looks like a fairytale candy cottage. The products themselves have pretty pastel packaging with lilac candy stripes and a beautiful floral pattern and they also have gorgeous sweet sugary scents. The first product included in this dreamy little set is the Unicorn Candy Body Wash which has a creamy vanilla and marzipan scent and contains skin softening shea butter. It’s perfect to add a little touch of unicorn sparkle to your shower! I also love the scent of the Vanilla Ice moisturising shower creme as it smells really sweet and reminds me of vanilla ice cream cones. The snowy white bottle is also really pretty and I’m looking forward to using this one in the summer time! The last item included in the set is this lovely little hand and body lotion called Ice Cream Sundae which comes in a gorgeous sugary pink tube with a little stripe of iridescent silver glitter around the top. Another sweet stocking filler idea from Baylis & Harding is this Unicorn Candy Handwash which has the same whimsical pastel rainbow packaging complete with floral blooms! 

Too Faced Primed & Poreless Powder

A gorgeous wishlist worthy item is this enchanting pink face powder from Too Faced which is just all of the heart eyes! It is from their Primed And Poreless range which I already love and I couldn’t resist adding this gorgeous baby pink compact with the gold detailing to my collection. The powder itself is embossed with the most delicate love heart pattern which looks so pretty and girly and it is the perfect makeup product for cute touch-ups on the go and for creating a soft focus effect on the skin. 

Too Faced Primed & Poreless Balm

Also from the Too Faced Primed And Poreless range is this beautiful Primed And Poreless Balm which comes in the loveliest milky pink shimmery packaging with a white love heart and enchanting gold details. This is a pretty primer which you can apply before your makeup to smooth out pores and create a lovely flawless base. It contains lots of lovely skin ingredients too such as Vitamin E and would be a gorgeous gift for a princess who loves their luxury skincare items! 

Candy Cane Lane Mug

I absolutely adore all of Vienna’s gorgeously girly mugs so when I spotted this pretty pink candy cane one on her Etsy store, I added it straight to my basket and couldn’t wait to share it as I thought it would make the perfect small gift idea for lots of girly girls! Vienna creates the most beautiful little illustrations and this mug features a pretty pink gingerbread house with a little bow on the door surrounded by pink and white striped candy canes, cupcakes, snowy Christmas trees, little presents and an adorable girly gingerbread man complete with some pink snow. I’ve absolutely loved making some cute hot chocolates in mine recently and completing them with some fluffy whipped cream and a pink candy cane too. You could also make this into a cosy little hot chocolate gift set and add some hot chocolate powder, festive marshmallows, candy canes and some sweeties for a lovely small gift or Secret Santa idea! 

Enchanting Chocolate & Fudge Presents

I found these lovely little stacked presents in Home Bargains and I thought they would be perfect for a small gift. I was really drawn to the baby blue spotty and pink stripey packaging with the silver lids and shimmery white ribbon which reminds me of sweeties and Nutcracker sugar plum dreams. Inside the whimsical boxes are little chocolates and pieces of vanilla fudge and I think they would look so pretty sitting underneath your Christmas tree ready to gift! 

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lashes

I couldn’t write a girly gift idea and not include something from Charlotte Tilbury as it is just one of the prettiest and most luxurious makeup brands and they also do the loveliest gift sets. I treated myself to their new Pillow Talk Lashes Mascara a couple of months ago which is part of their iconic Pillow Talk range and it comes in the most indulgent powder pink and rose gold tube. The mascara gives your lashes a lovely fluttery doll effect and would be a beautiful stocking filler idea for a beauty lover! Another gorgeous gifting option from Charlotte Tilbury is the Pillow Talk Lip Secrets set which is packaged in the loveliest blush pink and rose gold box and comes with all of Charlotte’s iconic Pillow Talk lip products which are some of the brand’s bestsellers! 

Pink Macaron Gel Nail Kit

I adore getting my nails done and I think it’s one of the nicest little pamper treats but due to the events of this year, sadly the nail bars and beauty salons have had to be closed a lot of the time. If you know someone who loves getting their nails done, this little gel nail kit from Le Mini Macaron is perfect as they can do their own nails at home and it’s relatively easy. This little set comes with the most adorable baby pink UV lamp which is macaron-shaped and is also really dainty so you could even keep it out on your dressing table as a little decor piece. The set also comes with everything that you need to complete your at home manicure with and you also get one of the pretty Gel Nail Polishes in the shade ‘Fairy Floss’ which is a sugary candyfloss pink colour and is perfect for princessy manicures. 

Tilda Loves Teddy Swan

Lastly, I thought I would share this sweet little swan decoration from a handmade brand called Tilda Loves Teddy on Etsy. I love snowy swans and I don’t think there is anything more enchanting and graceful than a beautiful swan gliding across a snowy lake. I love this little white wooden decoration with her dainty black eyelashes, white fluffy wings and pretty pink sequin floral decorations. She looks perfect sitting on my bedside table but I also think she would be a sweet little baby gift too!

I really hope that you enjoyed reading my girly Christmas gift guide this year and that it has given you some ideas to complete your Christmas shopping. I would also love to know what is on your Christmas wishlist so share your ideas below!
