Christmas Gift Guide 2014 – For Her | Under R200

Christmas Gift Guide For Her

Happy Monday, everyone!  Well…to be honest, it’s been a bit of a frustrating Monday because 1. this past weekend flew by (I’m not even sure we had a 2-day weekend, I think we’ve been tricked!) and 2. I was busy writing this very blog post when BAM!  Load shedding…  So I had to wait almost 3 hours before I could finish writing my post and load it.  Because of this, I don’t have all my Christmas Gift Guide blog posts ready to load all at once, so I thought I would load them as I finish them off.

These Christmas Gift Guide blog posts have become a bit of a tradition here on Pink Peonies blog, so if you would like to check out the 2013 version of this ‘ Christmas Gift Guide – For Her {Under R 200}’, then click here.  A lot of the products mentioned in that blog post are still available too, so make sure you check it out for some extra inspiration.

For Her Under 200

1.  Ceramic Reindeer With Soetkoekie Biscuits ♥ R 199,00 – I am a sucker for these ceramic Christmas décor items and every single year I get sucked in & buy at least a few different ones!  This special little Rudolph cookie jar is available at Woolworths stores, as well as online here.

2.  Kevin Murphy Color  Bug Shimmer ♥ R 190,00 – A little sparkle for her hair, the Color Bug from Kevin Murphy is a gorgeous bronze-gold shade and will give hair a beautiful non-permanent glow.  Other shades available are purple, neon yellow, pink and white.  Available online at Retail Box, plus it’s on promotion at the moment for R 152,00!

3.  Stila Sealed With a Kiss Lip Glaze Trio ♥ R 140,00 –  Polish up your pout, add a splash of colour & a touch of gloss with this lipgloss trio set from Stila.  Available at Woolworths stores, as well as online here.

4.  The Body Shop Glazed Apple Treat Box ♥ R 100,00 – Trust me, you are going to want to give this as a gift to your friend, colleague, momma, sister – anyone who has a nose will LOVE this scent (imagine fresh green apples dipped in sugar).  The set contains a Glazed Apple Shower Gel (60ml), Glazed Apple Body Butter (50ml) and Green Mini Crinkle Bath Lily and is available at The Body Shop stores.

5.  L’OCCITANE Arlésienne Hand Cream ♥ R 120,00 – A beautiful mix of rose and violet notes, this hand cream is guaranteed to become a favourite.  I am so in love with the whole  Arlésienne range, but the hand cream is an essential because I can pop it in my handbag and take it with me wherever I go.  Available at L’OCCITANE stores, as well as online here.

6.  Nails Inc Sprinkles Nail Polish ♥ R 125,00 each – The range features 4 milky glitter polishes, they are opaque, bright with the added bonus of being saturated with pastel glitters.  What’s not to love?  Available at Edgars & Red Square stores, as well as online here.

7.  Zana ‘Kiss Cuddle Repeat’ Flag Banner ♥ R 190,00 – I am in love with these flag banners from Zana, they remind me of the banner I often see in Essie Button’s videos but Zana’s ones are a lot cuter because they almost look handwritten.  There are also other designs available i.e. ‘YAY’ (my favourite word) amongst other ones.  These banner flags are available online at Zana.

8.  Puppy Sleep Set ♥ R 89,99 – How about a special Christmas themed pyjama set?  I am definitely picking up one of these sets for myself for Christmas morning & I can just see it becoming my annual Christmas outfit.  Available at Mr. Price, as well as online here.

    So after a 4.5hr load shedding stint, here’s a post to read, so it makes my afternoon a bit more bearable:)

    Going to stock up on those Body Shop sets, sounds fantastic for R100.

    Is the candle R270? A bit steep…and over R200…Maybe a typo?

    I got the purple colour bug…probably receiving it today, but wishing I got the gold instead. I know the secret boxes usually fly, so figured I didn’t have enough time to weigh up my options in terms of a colour and having to checkout ASAP. And 3 days later, there are still boxes available…argh.

    Purple will be fun though…my 6yr old daughter and I will both enjoy it:)

    Some great ideas! My hubby asked for a list of websites I shop on so he can buy something for my birthday, I’m going to forward your blog to him as well…he he… Shame, it’s going to break the bank for him…*evil chuckle*

    Is the make up bag wide enough to take the brushes as well? It’s so cute! I asked a friend to get me a make up bag for my birthday…so hoping she spots this one when I share the post.

      Clicked on link, it is R270. Sounds great, but not sure I’d ever pay that for a candle. Is it that amazing?

        It’s definitely that amazing….Yankee Candles are even more pricey and they are the BOMB! 🙂

      You are so sweet, Simone. 🙂 I’ve been meaning to reply to all the comments on my blog, but things have been a bit hectic on my side..

      Thank you so much for letting me know about the slip-up on my part, I updated the blog post with a new product.

      Let me know how you like the purple Color Bug, the bronzey-gold one is amazing….it almost gives like a highlighted look to your hair. I did, however, read they are quite messy…so I don’t think you should let your 6 year old run around with it…the results could be catastrophic! 😀

      Haha! Us wives deserve a good spoiling every now & again…so Christmas (and your birthday) around the corner is the perfect opportunity!

      I’m actually not sure if it will fit full-sized makeup brushes but I’m sure it will be big enough for travel sized ones. 🙂

    My mum will luv that cinnamon syrup, so has such a sweet tooth! Thank you for doing these posts, Lu, it must have taken you a long time to create and write everything. Much appreciated.

      See? There’s a little something you can add to your mom’s Christmas stocking! 😉

      It does take a bit of time to compile these lists but it’s all in good fun! xo

    I was just reading your blog again and catching up because I miss you 🙁 and I just had to say that you sold with the cinnamon syrup and I literally just bought it – ahh!!

  13. 14 January 2015 / 11:03

    what do you think about having monthly or quarterly wish list posts? Would love to see what interests you, for instance its my birthday next month, and normally I go for something expensive that I wouldn’t buy myself (yes I prefer to choose my own gift) but this year I want to have a budget and then pick a few things, sounds weird? not sure anyway, the reason is because you are so much more clued up on the latest trends, and seeing your previously wish lists is a great way to checking for gift ideas.

    • Luzanne

      My birthday is next month too! I’ll definitely do a ‘Birthday Wish List’ blog post and will try to do one every few months or so. I’m exactly the same, though, I like to pick out my own gifts because then at least I know for a fact I will love each one of them. 🙂

  14. 14 January 2015 / 11:05

    Also I’m not sure whether you have done a post like this before, I still have a lot of reading to do (on your blog lol) but how do you take and edit your instagram and blog posts, its always amazing and so light and themed and ofcourse you are beautiful. Hope you are recovering well and that you get better real soon!

    • Luzanne

      I haven’t done a blog post on how I take & edit my photos BUT I am planning on starting a blog series called ‘Blogger Tips & Tricks’ or something like that where I’ll let you guys in on a couple of tips that I use when blogging.

      Thank you for your compliment regarding my blog, Abieda, I really appreciate your kind words. 🙂
