If you’re struggling with gift ideas for Christmas this year, don’t worry – Foschini’s got you covered! Last weekend I decided to take a stroll through the new and improved Foschini store in Centurion Mall, and I ended up buying a couple of goodies while I was there. Nothing too interesting, I stocked up on my beloved Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation (for the hot Summer months ahead) and purchased Clinique’s Makeup Brush Cleanser as well. I noticed Foschini has A LOT of beauty gifts and kits available for the festive season ahead, everything from fragrances to fab makeup kits.
I decided to show you my 10 favourite gifting options, all available at a Foschini store near you. Make sure you hang around ’till the end of this blog post, because there might just be a special surprise waiting for you!
♥ Deluxe Fragrance Gift Box For Her – R 1050,00
♥ Luxury Fragrance Gift Box For Him – R 995,00
♥ Designer Fragrance Gift Box For Her – R 665,00
♥ Designer Fragrance Gift Box For Him – R 790,00
These fragrance gift boxes contain up to 13 different fragrance vials and a voucher. Once you have tested all the sample size fragrances and have decided on a favourite, you can redeem the voucher for a full size fragrance. Such an amazing idea to give someone the opportunity to test various fragrances over a period of time, and then allowing them to choose their own signature scent. It’s almost like getting your friend or family member the perfect gift, because you know they’re going to love whichever full size fragrance they choose.
♥ DKNY Be Delicious Gift Set – R 1245,00
This gift set contains a full size DKNY Be Delicious Eau de Parfum (60ml), a mini Be Delicious Eau de Parfum (7ml), a 100ml body lotion and 100ml shower gel. I love all the DKNY Be Delicious fragrances, I own the original green EDP, the Golden Delicious Sparkling Apple EDP (yellow), and the Fresh Blossom EDP (pink). I even featured the DKNY Golden Delicious Sparkling Apple EDP in my April 2015 blog post here.
♥ Victor & Rolf Spicebomb Gift Set – R 1295,00
The gift set contains a full size Victor & Rolf Spicebomb Eau de Toilette (90ml) and a generous travel size Spicebomb Eau de Toilette (20ml). Neal owns this fragrance and both of us love it – yep, I also sometimes wear masculine fragrances!
♥ FHI Travel Set – R 1299,00
There are 2 sets available – pink and blue. Each travel set contains a mini hair dryer, a mini curling iron and 2 sectioning clips.
♥ Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Gift Set – R 1095,00
One word: Obsessed! The gift set contains a full size YSL Black Opium Eau de Parfum (50ml), plus a YSL Nuit Noire nail lacquer. How stunning is that black glittery nail polish? I don’t know about you, but I have always wanted to own a YSL polish. If I didn’t already own the YSL Black Opium fragrance, then I would have definitely added this to my Christmas Wish List. I reviewed YSL Black Opium in this blog post, it’s still one of my favourite fragrances.
♥ Real Techniques Deluxe Gift Set – R 599,95
The collector’s edition gift set contains a Multi Task brush, exclusive Tapered Foundation brush, exclusive Angled Highlighter brush, a Base Shadow brush, a Fine Liner brush and an exclusive glam-to-go clutch to store your brushes in. I’m in love with the metallic finish of the brush handles!
♥ Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Gift Set – R 1200,00
The set contains a full size La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum (50ml), a 50ml body lotion, a mini Lancôme Hypnôse mascara, plus a beautiful black pouch.
♥ Carolina Herrera VIP Rose Gift Set – R 995,00
This gorgeous gift set contains a full size Carolina Herrera VIP Rose Eau de Parfum (50ml), and a 100ml body lotion. Don’t you just love the rose gold packaging of the fragrance? This is definitely one fragrance that I have my eye on for Christmas… *hint-hint* I’ll have to encourage Neal to read this blog post.
♥ Elizabeth Arden BlockBuster Colour Gift Set – R 1195,00
The makeup kit contains a whopping 18 products – I don’t think I’ve ever seen such value for money! The gift set contains 3 Elizabeth Arden makeup brushes, 2 x Day and Night Palettes, 1 x Outside Shimmer Powder, 4 x Lipsticks, 2 x Beautiful Color Luminous Lipgloss Minis, a full size Beautiful Color Lash Enhancing Mascara, 2 x Lip Pencils, 2 x Eye Pencils, and a 50ml All Gone Eye Makeup Remover. You could even buy this BlockBuster kit and use the products as stocking stuffers! Ahem…Neal, please take note of this one as well.
♥ Adidas Born Original For Him & Her Eau de Toilette – R 295,00 (30ml), R 395,00 (50ml) and R 495,00 (75ml)
This is their new fragrance duo for Summer 2015. Born Original for Her begins with a bright citrusy cocktail of bergamot, apricot and orange zest. The top notes burst into a vibrant, sweet candy apple accord. Tantalizing tones of exotic coconut, jasmine and tonka beans add an unexpected twist for an intoxicating finish. Born Original For Him is a classic oriental remixed with an addictive ambery citrus accord. A fusion of violet leaves and rhubarb adds a green lyrical facet, which is juxtaposed with spicy black pepper and orange oil.

NB: Be sure to tell me in the comments section below which 1 of the 3 prizes you would like to win. If Rafflecopter picks your name, and you haven’t indicated which prize you would like to win, then I will unfortunately have to randomly choose another name.
Please note: I’ve added another Twitter entry to the giveaway (usually I only have one tweet option) because I’ve noticed not everyone uses to Twitter button in the Rafflecopter widget to tweet the generic giveaway message that includes a link to the blog post. So I’ve added another option for you to RETWEET my giveaway tweet (the one with the photo). See below:
This giveaway is open to South African residents only.
The giveaway will run until 11:59pm on Thursday, 3rd December 2015, with 3 winners being selected at random shortly afterwards. I always announce the winners of my giveaways on Facebook and Twitter, so make sure you follow me on both social media platforms.
