Christmas Gift Set Lust List Under £50

Gift sets are an amazing way to try out a selection of products you wouldn't necessarily buy in full-size. This year, I have my eye on quite a few as even the highest of high-end brands have bought out special gift sets especially for Christmas. Here are a few of my favourites...

Laura Mercier Sweet Temptations Creme Brulee Set | John Lewis £35

Combining two of my favourite things, dessert and bathtime, Laura Mercier is offering an indulgent and luxurious set that would be the perfect way to spoil someone. The set contains a bath creme, body creme and a honey dipper inspired by the scents of French patisseries and created with some amazing ingredients (vanilla and caramel to name a few). This is definitely the height of luxury at bath-time, and almost good enough to eat. 

Philip Kingsley Geranium and Neroli Elasticizer Duo | BlowLTD £12

As a big fan of the Philip Kingsley hair products, it is quite shameful that I haven't yet tried the brands piece-de-resistance, the elasticizer. This set contains two limited edition Geranium and Neroli-scented travel-size elasicizers that are perfect stocking fillers. As most people know, it is a pre-shampoo conditioning treatment that adds shine, bounce and of course elasticity to the texture and condition of your hair. The packaging is gorgeous and they come in a floral box complete with looped ribbon, ideal to hang from the tree. 

Laura Mercier In The Glow Highlight 01 | BlowLTD £25

Once you've seen this set, I'm not sure how you could resist falling for its rose-golds and sheen pink shades within the classic, flawless Laura Mercier packaging. It is a trio containing a Matte Radiance Baked Powder to bronze, Bonne Mine Stick Face Colour in Peach Glow to add some life to your complexion and a Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Rose Gold to shimmer-ize your eyelids. I have tried one of the Laura Mercier caviar sticks before and it sparked a love for shadow-sticks in all colours. 

NARS Steven Klein Nude Lip Set - A Woman's Face | ASOS £29

A trio of class from Nars' latest collaboration with Steven Klein has hit the shelves and it would be ideal gift for those make-up obsessed. A creamy lip liner, classic nude lipstick and a matte lip pencil combine to create a show-stopping natural, sultry pout, perfect to for day-to-night transitioning. Dolce Vita lipstick and Mini Velvet Matte lip pencil compliment the Mini Patong Beach Velvet Lip Line - what more could you want in your stocking. This set is definitely not just for Christmas..

Rodial Heroes Collection | ASOS £50

Rodial; a brand that I am constantly lusting over online but have never plucked up enough courage to invest in their renound skin treatments before. So what better time than Christmas, when Rodial have combined their Skincare Heroes into a gift-set collection. You get four minis: the StemCell Superfood Cleanser (50ml), Dragon's Blood Sculpting Gel (9ml), Bee Venom Moisturiser (10ml) and Super Acids X-treme Acid Rush Peel (15ml). The set will also save you a third on the retail price.

NARS Steven Klein Dual-Intensity Eye Shadow Palette - Dead of Summer | ASOS £35

Another one of the Steven Klein/NARS collaboration, this eye-shadow palette screams Christmas and New Year parties, teamed along with the Via Veneto long-lasting eyeliner for the ultimate smoky-eye. Four sultry and seductive shades (Studly, Stag, Subra and Blackmail) in an amazing compact, ideal handbag-size, Team this with one of the Real Techniques Eyeshadow Brush sets and you have a winning present combination. 

Charlotte Tilbury The Gift of Goddess Skin Travel Set | John Lewis £39

Another brand I am desperate to try is the Charlotte Tilbury make-up and skincare that I am hearing so much about at the moment, especially with the numerous new lauches that have emerged ideally just before Christmas-time. The miracle-working Magic Cream in particular is being raved about, so what better way to try it than in travel-size, side-by-side with the Goddess Skin Clay Mask and the Wonder Glow Beauty Flash (all 15ml).  

Clinique Moisture Favourites Skincare Gift Set | John Lewis £40

Perhaps not the most Christmassy colour but the Clinique Moisture Favourites set is pink all over. Four travel size items: Moisture Surge Extended Thirst relief (50ml), Moisture Surge Overnight Mask (30ml), All About Eyes (5ml) and a Chubby Stick in Budding Blossom (1.2g), this is one to take you into Spring. You can't go wrong with Clinique!

Bumble and Bumble Full of Cheer Thickening Gift Set | Feel Unique £22

One of my favourite high-end hair care brands, Bumble and Bumble has released some gift sets for the festive season featuring some of their most reputable products. The Dry Spun Finish hairspray is something I hear about a lot as being a brilliant hairspray to add volume and texture into the finish of your hair. The value of the set is £36 so if you're thinking of buying one of the pieces anyway then this set is amazing value.
