Whether you are looking for a very generous stocking filler or a fabulous parcel to pop under the tree, check out these picks!

Philosophy's "Sweet Fluffy Cupcake Shampoo, Shower Gel and Bubble Bath" (€17.80) is a three-in-one. It has fluffy marshmallow added to the centre (nom), with hints of vanilla and caramel. Wash with it, don't eat it.

Urban Decay has an exclusive at Debenhams, where you can build your own "Rock" palette. For €17, you get a four-pan palette which you can customise when you feel the pigment need. And one slot is already filled with Rock (the palette's namesake), a new, sheer, shimmery oyster/taupe shade that you won't find anywhere else. Ideal for the eyeshadow lovers that you know.

Origin's Grapefruit Duo Christmas Set (€24) is a beautiful boxed set with a 100ml Gloomaway Grapefruit body wash and bubble bath and a matching 100ml body soufflé.

Benefit's "One Prime Day", €19.50, has three minis (see above) to leave you primed and prepped.


And Too Faced's "Jingle All The Way Christmas Set", at €24, is a two-in-one Christmas gift. The kit includes 11 eyeshadows, a bronzer and blush. And if you pop out the makeup palette, the case can be used as a cover for your iPhone 5. Your phone will thank you for its festive makeover.

This Oasis long sleeved, boatneck top has an Oriental print (€22), and would be gorgeous with a pair of black skinnies and boots, or tucked into a skater skirt and layered up with some heavy gold jewellery.

Cath Kidston's mini makeup brush set (€24.99) is such a pretty butterfly and star emblazoned piece of kit. It holds four different sized, natural bristle brushes with wooden handles.

Or that €24.99 will get you a copy of the beautiful "A Year At Avoca: Cookbook 3". It has over 150 new recipes and I want to eat them ALL.

Lancôme's Juicy Tube Set (€24) is a fab gift with four minis of their most popular glosses. The gift set also contains a mini eye makeup remover (Bi-Facil, 30ml) and a mini crayon in kohl black.

And finally, Elizabeth Arden's Eight-Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick (€22.50) moisturises and smoothes, with Vitamin E and SPF 15.
