Christmas is my absolute favourite time of year; November 1st and i'm ready to decorate. However, every year i dread having to write the infamous Christmas gift posts. I love the result and i love reading other peoples but they take a lot of time to compose, and being in my final year of university doesn't give me the greatest amount of time. So, this year i decided to create five seperate gift posts for five different types of people; starting with the Beauty Junkie and The Foodie, The Student, The Difficult One and Secret Santa are to come. I've tried to link where i can but in some of the posts, they're just suggestions so i've pictured an option but it's up to you to fill the gap for what your friend likes the most. You'll see what i mean in the posts to come. Also, i'm not going to be doing a tonne of explaining because a lot of the time because, honestly, a lot of the time it's self explanatory - i mean, what Beauty Junkie doesn't want the Naked Palette if they haven't already got it?

Anyway, first up is the Beauty Junkie and i'm pretty sure we all have one of these friends, i know i do! Here i've selected some of the my personal favourite products and a few that, as a beauty junkie, i'd love to try out myself and that i've seen great reviews on. For example, the Impress Nails are all over the Youtube world and on blogs too. They're supposed to last a lot longer than usual stick on nails and they come in a huge range of colours and patterns, so there's sure to be something your giftee will like. Similarly, i'd love to try out the Smashbox Try It Kit as i keep spotting it in my local Boots store. It contains five of Smashbox's best selling products and it's really well priced. Smashbox is a brand that i haven't personally tried a lot from, and i don't honestly hear all that much about it so i think this would be a great way for someone to try out something new.

Otherwise here are some other suggestions that i love, that would be great for any beauty lover. Make up hoarders always need new make up and make up bags, too. Something that i personally think would be a lovely gift is a YSL lipstick. As i recently acquired some myself, they're such a luxury product that any beauty lover would be ecstatic to be gifted. They're so beautifully packaged and the formulation is amazing.

I hope you can all find some inspiration from these posts, for your Christmas gift buying this year.
