Christmas Gift Ideas: Self Care (under £30.)

If you are anything like me and struggling to tick off the last few people on your Christmas shopping list, I hope the next couple of days of gift guides helps. There are some great offers on at the minute and I am kicking things off with a some self care treats. All of these come in at under £30.

Aurelia Start the Day Bright Collection – £25.

This set contains a Refine & Polish Exfoliation Mask 20ml, Revitalise & Glow Serum 15ml, Brightening Eye Serum 15ml and a Cell Revitalise Day Moisturiser 30ml housed in a reusable tin. Worth an astounding £134, this set is currently on sale for just £25. Plus Aurelia offer free delivery on all orders.

I have been using the Revitalise and Glow Serum for the past month or so and it has made a massive difference to my skin, tackling the winter dullness that not enough sunshine and too much beige food has created. The Aurelia range as a whole is amazing and this is a great way to try a couple of their key products. 

Their Nibs Cotton Pyjamas – Harvest Hedge – £25.60

Christmas is all about new pyjamas and these are the softest, crisp cotton that are perfect for all year round, not just for Christmas. The print is one of my favourites of the range although it is tricky to pick just one, they are all gorgeous. Especially since having Rosie and going *out out* less, I am investing in higher quality loungewear and pyjamas rather than party dresses and strappy heels and it is one of the best decisions I have made. Nothing beats coming home from a long day at work and putting on a nice fresh pair of pjs.

Neals Yard Remedies Womens Balance bath Salts – £15

The blend of patchouli, rose, frankinsense and geranium not only smells incredible but their unique aromatherapy benefits help to relax and calm your mind, perfect for the hectic festive season. The Womens Balance range is designed to balance the body’s natural rhythms and cycles, calming moods and releasing tension. I have used both the arnica & seaweed and the lavender bath salts previously but the Womens Balance range as a whole is a longstanding favourite and I cant wait to try these salts.

The White Company Medium Candle – Midnight £28.

For me the Winter candle from the White Company symbolises the start of the festive season, the only problem is it is takes quite a while to get through and now that there is a toddler causing havoc in the living room, we are tending to only light candles when she is (finally) in bed. The Midnight candle is slightly less Christmas-y and is inspired by the midnight fireworks over Venice. Think vetiver, cardamom, amber, ginger and nutmeg. Still very warming, with the subtle spices but a little more masculine and smokey. I always go for the botanical candles with rather than the glass and this one is filled with purple canella berries and fern leaves.

What is on the top of your Christmas list? Is there anyone you are struggling to buy for?

    That Midnight candle sounds delicious and I love the simplistic packaging / branding they use.

    Those pjs are a wonderful choice and I complete agree that spending money on high quality and comfortable nightwear is the way to go.

    At this time of year I always try and treat myself to little things that I need but don’t want to ask from other people, this week it has been the Thought box of rainbow socks, definitely not the cheapest and might tip over the £30 mark but gorgeously bright colours, sustainably made and a good egg company.
