Last Wednesday it was my best friends birthday and I thought it was only right to spoil her rotten! Now, I know you don’t give to receive, but after receiving the gifts she bought me for my birthday (have a nosey on my Belated Birthday Gifts post) I had to get her some special bits and bobs. Seen as her favourite colour is pink, I thought to keep to a theme and buy only pink items. I think this just makes everything look so much more put together and adds a lot of cute factor. I headed straight to Boots because let’s be honest, what do Boots sell that you don’t wanna buy? Exactly. Buying for someone else is a perfect excuse to go mad!
Firstly, I headed to the Soap & Glory gift section and picked up this gem. A little gift set called ‘Birthday Washes’ (cute, right?) it comes with a mini ‘Clean On Me’ which is a creamy moisture shower gel and a mini ‘The Righteous Butter’ which is a silky smooth body butter. What more does a girl love than good soak in the tub, covering yourself in body butter then putting on a fresh pair of PJ’s. PERFECT! The packaging is to die for and the products are actually really good! If you wanna grab one for someone you know click here.
Sticking to Soap & Glory I headed to the make up section… Personally, I’ve used quite a few of their make up products including mascaras, lip glosses and even their face powder. But my favourite product of theirs has to be the ‘Sexy Mother Pucker’ lip gloss. If you haven’t tried a lip plumping gloss then you need to try this! It really enhances the lips and makes them look plump and voluminous! I feel like a human Bratz doll when I wear it, no lie! I got her the shade ‘Candy Queen’ which is a pale pink, a perfect colour to go over a nude lippy. Get your pout on and buy yours here.
After popping them into my basket I went straight to the candle section and spotted my one true love… ‘Pink Sands’ by Yankee Candle. OH MY GOODNESS. If you haven’t smelt this candle you must do it immediately. There’s a beautiful mix of bright citrus, sweet florals and spicy vanilla within the candle and I love it so much, although the price point seems a lot they do burn for a long time, I think this size burns for up to 45 hours! I had to get it for her. Get yours here quick before I buy them all!
After purchasing these items from Boots I then whizzed over to ASDA to get the card. I ended up choosing this adorable one with a little dear on the front with floral print. I saw it and straight away thought of her. So girly and cute it’s like it was made for her! The verse inside read ‘Wishing you a birthday you’ll enjoy and treasure’. How sweet.
Last but not least, what’s a birthday without some fizz? I added in this miniature bottle of Freixenet cava. My mum picked this up for me and I’m not quite sure where she bought it from! (Sorry guys) but I’m sure most supermarkets will sell it!
I hope this post has given you a little bit of gift inspo, go spoil someone quickly!!
