This is my list of possible gift ideas for her.
1) My first idea would be a light up mirror. I received this one last year- and don't know how I ever lived without it!- one side is a regular mirror and the other 5 times magnified. It is available from Boots, in store and online- http://www.boots.com/en/No7-Illuminated-Make-up-Mirror-Exclusive-to-Boots_982588/- and costs £20. I feel that this would be a amazing gift as it is suitable for woman and girls of all ages-Teenagers just getting into make-up and older woman, who may decide to take a little more care in their appearance!
2) My second idea is the NYX Nude on Nude, eyeshadow and lip pallet. This is an ideal pallet for someone just getting into make-up as it provides them with essential colours for both eyes and lips!, also it is a good pallet for those who like travelling as you can get many different eye looks from the one pallet. I purchased mine in the UK from my local TK Maxx Store, and it cost £14.99.
3)As you may be able to tell by my many nail of the day post I love nail varnish- and when I received the 17 mini nail library as a gift, I thought it was great, for those who are just starting out and experimenting with nail polish- and also it gives you a wide variety of choices in one box. It is available from boot stores and online-http://www.boots.com/en/17-Mini-Nail-Library_1219471/ and it costs £10
4)Another idea would be to do a hamper- one could be for nails-you could include the nail wardrobe from above- with one of my favourite products the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri top coat, which I have used many times and love, which is available from Boots and Superdrug, and costs £6.15. You could also include a nail file, I like the Leighton Denny one from Boots, as it also includes a buffer, and costs £6.15,http://www.boots.com/en/Leighton-Denny-Quatro-Nail-File-Buffer_927622/. Also you can include a hand and nail cream to ensure that the nail is kept in the best condition possible, http://www.boots.com/en/Neutrogena-Norwegian-Formula-Hand-Nail-Cream-75ml_1114043. Finally you could include some nail varnish remover and cotton pads, for when it is time to take the nail varnish off.
