Oh, the weather outside is frightful...and increasingly so is any retail hub. The commercial sirens are screaming: "CHRISTMAS IS COMING!" Could you imagine if Wizzard were granted their wish of Christmas everyday? The stress! Although, given the fact the high-street began bombarding us with all sorts of festive paraphernalia back in early October, it certainly does feel like we've been living the holiday almost everyday.
Living with my father, I have observed over many Christmases his poor whiskery face pale in response to the inevitable question, "What do you want for Christmas?" followed by my equally predictable answer, "Nothing!"
Fear not, parents, significant others and friends, for I have complied the ultimate Scottish Bitch gift guide for the humble year of 2014. Don't worry, the price tag won't give you a heart attack either.
Vivienne Westwood - Memoirs
|We adore her.|
Real Technique Make-up Brushes
Now, I would be fibbing if I said I haven't been lusting over these bad boys for quite a while. Product of social media dream team, Pixiwoo, the Real Techniques collection guarantees high-quality brushes, suitable for both professional and personal use. With the core collection coming in at £20.99 (Superdrug,) it is a bargain to behold, but if it's a little bit out of your budget, there's also the "Mini Must-Have" set at just £7.99. Know a lady that really deserves some serious pampering? These are for you.
Essie Nail Polish Duo Kit
|A festive manicure? Why, yes, thank you very much.|
Possibly the most revered nail polish brand available on the high-street, Essie assures quality varnish. Avoid the cheap box sets of own-brand nail polish and go straight for the kicker. Sure, it might be less bang for your buck visually, but trust us - quality is far better than quantity. Say "no more" to lackluster presents and chipped nails - splash out and spoil your loved one at £13.00 (Debenhams.)
The September Issue
|Anna is our queen.|
Coming in at under £3.00 (Amazon), is the famed Vogue documentary, "The September Issue." A rare insight into the mysterious world of Anna Wintour and her loyal band of journalists, the film takes a look at the compilation of the September issue - commonly known within the fashion industry as the largest issue of the year. With snippets from fashion legends such as André Leon Talley and Grace Coddington, this is the perfect gift for anybody who already loves chick-flick, "The Devil Wears Prada."
Soap and Glory Gift Set
|Who can resist a great bubble bath?|
No Christmas list would be complete without a great bubbles set. Known for being positively scrumptious, Soap and Glory have the gift set down to a capital T. With an appropriate mix of indulgent goodies for the shower, bath and hands, it's a gift you can't really go wrong with, especially at a price point of £10.00 (Boots.)
