Last Minute Gifts for all budgets

Though I have shared so many Christmas related posts this year and given you many ideas already, I still have some really lovely gifts to share with you. These would be great for treating yourself or your loved ones.

Crabtree & Evelyn Candle - Last minute christmas gifts - Ms Tantrum Blog

Christmas is incomplete without burning fragrant candles. Now you can create or gift the perfect festive setting with the flicker from Crabtree & Evelyn’s poured candle. Winter warming notes of sweet mimosa and mulled spice essences of cardamom infuse its seasonal scent. Captured with the brand’s cold extraction technology to create the most beautifully authentic fragrances, their poured candle wraps you and your guests in Christmassy togetherness. Plus a beautiful glass/copper packaging makes it look really chic and luxurious.

During colder months and specially around Christmas, I want everything to smell like berries. It just feels very festive to me. The Red berry and Fir Room spray is great for creating an instantly festive atmosphere. The home fragrance uses the refreshing aromas of Evergreen Foliage and Crimson Berries to infuse the home with Christmas spirit, while the brand’s cold extraction technology keeps out the chill. Simply spritz the air to instantly fill the room with seasonal fragrance or give it as a stocking filler to your friends or family.

Wolf Storage boxes - Last minute christmas gifts - Ms Tantrum Blog

I don’t think I can now imagine my life without Wolf Storage solutions. Their Luxury watch stackable tray has sorted our (my husband & mine) watches storage problems and was also featured in my Lifestyle Gift Guide. My new loves are few pieces from Blossom Collection and a Palermo Box with a lock. Blossom collection is a floral pattern collection with flowers in red, white and blue making a high fashion appeal. The laser cut flowers and applique design with leather exterior makes great statement pieces.

Palermo Collection on the other hand is influenced by the Italian city Palermo, this collection emulates the effortlessness of today’s Modern Woman. The refined sophisticated design features a set of jewellery cases with Teju lizard leathers available in Brown, Coral, Blush, and smooth pebbled Pewter. The interior is lined with our anti-tarnish LusterLoc and is sealed with a snap closure. I have got a brown one that will work as a Unisex option.

LusterLoc™ allows the fabric lining the inside of your jewellery cases to absorb the hostile gases known to cause tarnishing. Under typical storage conditions, it can prevent tarnishing for up to 35 years.

If you’re interested in reading more about each of the Storage boxes from Wolf, please keep an eye on my blog as I plan to do a separate post soon.

Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Icons set - Ms Tantrum Blog

When it comes to gifting, you can’t go wrong with Charlotte Tilbury products. Even if its just a lipstick, I know its going to be such a lovely present. I have been loving Charlotte Tilbury’s Quads in The Dolce Vita & The Vintage Vamp recently and feel that the shade selection in both the quads are perfect for any skin colour and eye colour. The bronze and copper tones of Dolce Vita and the reds and purple tones from Vintage Vamp make perfect choice for winters and Christmas. I also featured Charlotte Tilbury’s Beauty Icons set in one of my gift guides which is a limited edition holiday set and is a wonderful gift this Christmas.

If you haven’t tried any of the Clean Reserve Fragrances before and not sure which one to invest in, this set is definitely for you! I had tried Sel Santal before (review) and have been a fan so this set definitely makes sense for me as I wanted to try more from the brand. Clean Fragrances are known for layering and blending well with each other to create your own bespoke fragrance. This set comes with 6 fragrances (5 ml each making 30ml of Fragrances together) – Sueded Oud, Blonde Rose, Rain, Warm Cotton, Citron Fig and Sel Santal. This line-up allows you to move between fresh, floral, woody and aromatic fragrances. I really like that the brand has kept its signature packaging and branding for this gift set.

Elizabeth Arden Gift Set -  Last minute christmas gifts - Ms Tantrum Blog

The collection combines three of Elizabeth Arden’s best selling products – a volumising mascara, precision eyeliner and makeup remover for the eyes and lips. The volumising mascara and precision eyeliner are full sizes and mascara alone retails for £22 . The makeup remover is 50 ml which is great for travelling. This is such a great value set as the rrp of this set is around £49. This will make a great gift for anyone who loves makeup :).

This year I have been concentrating on skin health and started taking supplements to improve skin, hair and nails. I recently started Collagen Boosting Day & Night Ampoules by the award winning brand Skin Doctors and think they make great gifts for skincare lovers. The potent Vitamin C ampoules, tightens, brightens and awakens the skin while the potent Vitamin A ampoules restores, repairs and refines the skin. All in all anyone who loves anti-ageing skincare or looking for a bright, awaken complexion would absolutely love this!

The VITAL C collection is ideal for dry/dehydrated, rosacea-prone and sensitive skin due to harsh environmental stressors. A rich blend of natural botanicals creates a soothing and healthy way to improve skin. A product line high in anti-oxidants for ultimate protection and nutrition. This kit comes with:

  • Vital C Hydrating Cleanser
  • Vital C Hydrating Anti-Aging Serum
  • Vital C Daily Defense Hydrating Moisturizer SPF 30
  • Vital C Hydrating Repair Creme
  • Vital C Hydrating Enzyme Masque

The kit makes a great trial option for luxury skincare lovers.

Men-U Gift Set for men -  Last minute christmas gifts - Ms Tantrum Blog

The first thing one will notice about men-ü products is the unique packaging. The bottles are designed to fit neatly in the washbag. The hair and skincare specialists behind men-ü developed a range of grooming products with a difference using ultra-concentrated formulas. The shave facial trio contains shaving cream, cleanser and moisturiser which are great for exfoliating, deep cleaning and nourishing the skin. This kit is suitable for all skin types and gentle enough for everyday use.

I am really pleased with the range of gift sets for Men these days now specially in the skincare. I featured one of Men-U set in my other post as well. This shave facial essentials set contains Pro Black Shaving Brush with smooth, solid and non-absorbent bristles. This also has Shave Creme(15ml) that contains tea tree oil to help treat spots and shaving rashes, Healthy Facial Wash(15ml) which has a soap-free formula and is great for deep-cleansing. The kit also contain Matt ‘Skin Refresh’ Gel ( 15ml) which is an anti-shine and fragrance-free toner gel and Facial Moisturiser Lift (15ml) which is a two-in-one aftershave balm and moisturizer. This kit makes a great gift for men.

nudestix matte lipstick -  Last minute christmas gifts - Ms Tantrum Blog

My post on Nudestix Babeboss Faves box got so many views in mid of this year and I was super impressed with how creamy these lip crayons are and absolutely waterproof too! The lippies glide on to the lips and they stay on until you want them to. I absolutely adore their magnetic eye pencils as well. I am so in love with three shades Greystone, Burgundy & Capri for medium skin tones. You may love Greystone if you like wearing browns and greys. The good thing about these is they come in separate tins with a mirror inside and a sharpener with each crayon which makes a nice little kit for small but luxury gift without breaking your bank and these lipsticks last a very long time.

Natura Siberica set on Ms Tantrum Blog

If you’re on a budget but still want your gift to look like a bit of luxury, this gift set from Natura Siberica is a perfect choice. The set contains 3 products for men in a luxurious Black & Gold packaging. The three products in the set are –

Fury Of The Tiger (250ml) Energy Shampoo that brings vitality to your skin and hair, takes off weariness and emotional stress, raises your efficiency.

Wolf Power (50ml) Super Toning Face Cream to provide a rejuvenating effect, making skin more elastic and refreshing the complexion.

White Bear (250ml) Super Refreshing Shower Gel that helps efficiently clean, moisturise and nourish skin.

My husband absolutely loved the packaging when the set arrived which makes it a tick to gift it as a Christmas present.

If you like deep cleaning your skin from time to time, this is something you should pick up! You can experience the deep cleansing power of Activated Charcoal with this award-winning Organic certified detox soap. The soap has highly absorbent activated carbon to draw impurities from deep within the skin. It is enriched with unique and powerful wild harvested herbs and berries from Northern Siberia. Natura Siberica’s Northern Soap will leave your skin super clean and sparkling which is what everyone desires in this dull cold weather. This also makes a fab stocking stuffer.

This winter the best thing you could gift as a stocking filler is a foot cream or foot butter to keep their feet nice and soft. This natural Siberian foot butter is a nourishing foot treatment infused with Siberian Pine and Lavender oils. This foot butter has Limonnik Nanai which is highly beneficial for the skin. This is also rich in vitamins E and C with anti-oxidant effects, and thus nourishes and soothes even the driest skin. Siberian Pine oil strengthens skin and protects it from environmental damages.  Lavender oil restores damaged foot skin. Honestly, I would love to receive such gifts that can improve my feet.

Evo Haircare is an innovative, professional hair and beauty salon haircare brand with individuality & integrity – A manufacturer that speaks truth! Evo’s products are luxurious but and are sulphate, paraben, dea, tea and propylene glycol free; products that give professional results while respecting the environment. This little holiday set includes: normal persons daily shampoo 30ml, normal persons daily conditioner 30ml and uberwurst shaving creme 30ml . This is such a lovely little set to hang on a Christmas Tree or give it as a stocking filler.

The new candle from Fat Face is just such a lovely option to freshen up any room. The fragrance is right what everyone would like after a long day at work or chores. Light this candle anywhere around the house and infuse your rooms with our delicate Ocean Palm fragrance, designed to freshen and provide a pick-me-up after a busy day. This looks absolutely gorgeous too and would make a lovely stocking filler.

Another stocking filler is this body wash from Fat face. With a feminine Sweet Pea fragrance, this body wash is guaranteed to both relax and invigorate after a hard day. They do have some more seasonal gifts on their website which are worth checking out.

Jewellery gift on Ms Tantrum Blog

Jewellery & Fashion Lovers would definitely love to receive this beautiful pair of earrings in 23 Karat Gold plated sterling silver. This pair of earrings have two faceted Swarovski crystals. These earrings are inspired by Sophia Coppola’s satirical crime film of the same name and takes a toughened-up approach to traditional glam. The Bling Ring Charm Earrings feature a half-circle drop that floats just beneath the lobe, showcasing a matching shimmering stone. These are made in Italy and are Hypoallergenic, Nickel-free and Lead-free.
