Last Minute Gift Guide? Yes, please. If you’re looking for gifts last minute and want them to be perfect for Christmas, you’re in the right place. I have some wonderful gift ideas for the whole family. No more running around the city!

As a beauty and fashion blogger, my ideas are around cosmetics. With cosmetics, you can create a nice atmosphere for your loved ones (bath sets), offer them some new make-up (who doesn’t love a new make-up palette) or make the gift of a new fragrance. In our last minute gift guide, I’m sharing my top ideas for offering something special in relation to the ‘personality’ type.

Last Minute Gift Guide – For the Romantic Perfume Lover

Last Minute Gift Guide | Notino UK

The first gift idea is the enchanting ‘La Vie Est Belle’. This perfume is perfect for a lady. Its sweet notes will make the receiver fall in love with it.

Furthermore, just to give you an idea, its top notes are Black Currant and Pear; middle notes are iris, Jasmine and Orange Blossom; base notes are Praline, Vanilla, Patchouli and Tonka Bean.

Also, to make your gift complete, you can make it really French and add more delicate things such as macaroons and champagne.

Moreover, for the strong scent lover, you can go for the YSL Black Opium Flower Shock! The top notes are Pear, Freesia, Lemon and Bergamot; middle notes are Gardenia, White Flowers, Solar notes and Orange Blossom; base notes are Coffee, White Musk and Amberwood. Also, this is one of my favourite scents from my collection.

You can browse the Best Perfumes for Women on Notino to find the best deals. What’s extra? You can choose a beautiful RED box wrap at checkout.

For the Relaxation Lover

Ah, give me a bath set and I’m the happiest. Also, I’m that type of person who is always down for a pampering session. We all have that friend, don’t we?

Last Minute Gift Guide | Notino UK

I had my eye on Bohemia gifts for a while and found this beautiful rose set. It looks so precious.

You can pair this gift with a WoodWick candle that will relax that person even more.

For the Ones who Love Skincare

When it comes to skincare, you have so many gift sets to choose from. This limited edition Fizz & Duck set is simply perfect! It smells divine as Gin & Tonic and it comes in a Christmassy package already. It’s perfect for everyone with sensitive skin and a love for special treats.

For your Make-up Enthusiasts

This Make-up Revolution Palette Extra Spice by Soph has been my go to since last year. I’ve also been able to create some wonderful TikTok looks using it. If you know a make-up lover, trust me when I say that she will fall in love with this one. Just look at these gorgeous shades!

To make the gift complete, you can add a nice brow pencil that everyone needs.

Miss Andrada

Hello my lovelies,

Ah, the joy of winter holidays! I absolutely love making gifts and I always love to add in a personal touch to the gifts I make. What’s better than seeing a big smile on people’s faces? In today’s post, I’m going to show you how to become and amazing gift maker, even if you’re the type who doesn’t enjoy thinking about prezzies. It’s all simpler than you might think ✨

It’s almost Christmas Time! Are you running out of time for your Christmas shopping? Or are you looking for the latest bits and bobs to complete it? You’re in the right place! Have a look at these quick wins when it comes to gifts for 7 personality types!

For your special one

Mini perfume collection and a bottle of Prosecco.

Christmas Gift Ideas for 7 Personality Types for the Last-Minute Shopper NotAGirlyGal Mini Perfume Collection

I gifted this to my mum last year, just because she had a similar set when I was little, so it had a deep meaning for us. I think a set of luxury perfumes is a nice addition for the person who already has everything in terms of beauty. You can find this set in airports or online, but I would get it from the airport as it’s faster. Additionally, you can add a bottle of Prosecco or chocolate! 

For the fashion lover

Bags are always so loved by fashionistas – you would make them so happy with a bag for sure! You would have to do a bit of research around the type of bags she likes. If you don’t remember exactly, have a look on her social media and start by observing patterns in her bag choices. Does she like small bags or business bags where she can fit her whole life in?

Christmas Gift Ideas for 7 Personality Types for the Last-Minute Shopper NotAGirlyGal Guess BagWe all have that friend who travels with her laptop and all other essential things in her bag (I’m that friend) or the ones who prefer to travel light! It would be an added bonus to purchase from her favourite brand, just ensure she doesn’t have it already before you place your order. Find a small bag option here and a medium / large one here.

For the shoes addict

I have a friend obsessed with shoes. If you have one as well, then the shoes option is such an excellent idea! You’ll go down in gift history with this one. Similar to the bag idea, ensure you know the type of shoes and brand she prefers. I’ll give you a pair of high heeled shoes, but also a low heel option.

For the gourmet 

Classy taste? For the gourmets in our life, going for food would be an absolute winner. A pleasure to the buds would be a hamper made all by yourself tailored to his / her favourite treats. In mine, I included a Hollandaise cheese platter, a special bottle of wine, caviar and olive spread. I digged out the internet for some options that you can find below.Christmas Gift Ideas for 7 Personality Types for the Last-Minute Shopper NotAGirlyGal Cheese

For the coziness lover 

Does this person enjoy creating a cosy atmosphere every time you visit her? Does she enjoy lounging and indulging? Then, create her the perfect scenario! Go for a Christmas onesie, a pair of fluffy slippers, a beauty soap, a beauty mask and a box of special chocolate. Look for a special candle that she can have lit while she’s relaxing with her beauty mask on! I included links to what I can find online for my chosen items.

For the Travel Lover

Is your friend always going away and you barely see her? Then clearly, she loves her travels. For the travel lover go for something like a travel pillow or a passport holder set! You might think she already has these, but it’s always good for her to diversify. Don’t we all think we don’t have enough clothes or shoes? It goes the same way with these things too!

For the beauty addicts

Hello beauty lovers, I salute your beauty rituals. Beauty addicts always love to try new products and always welcome more products to their collection which makes it super easy for us when we’re looking for their perfect gift. Are you a last-minute shopper? Think about offering them a full ritual, from start to finish. Start with make-up removers that your friend will use to ‘take the day off’. Next, consider adding a Lush bath bomb and a face mask to make sure they’ll fully relax. For the wow factor, add in a bottle of Champagne that she can enjoy during her bath. I personally love to drink Champagne in the bath tub, so your friend might as well!

For the book warm

The best Christmas gift you can make a book lover is the book Feel the Fear… but do it anyway by Susan Jeffers. This book will change their lives and encourage their positive thinking, empowering them to become powerful. It clearly had an impact on how I see life and made me moan less and focus on enjoying life instead. We all have two options: to complain or to just go with it & deal with it. The subconscious mind will always listen to the conscious mind, so when you complain or think you’re not good enough, your subconscious mind will believe it. Read this book and discuss it with your friends because it’s truly inspiring. You can gift this book to anyone you’d like to encourage to grow.

Wood scents and heavy bottles, lids that click when you close the container and a scent that persists throughout the day and makes me feel in control of everything. These are a few of my favourite things! Can you relate? As you already know, I have a true passion for perfumes, especially for the heavy, winter ones. You know it, today we’ll look into finding the right perfume for you to empower and support you in achieving your goals!not a girly gal x notino find your signature scent 2019 tom ford.jpg

Kenzo L’Elephant

We have to start by addressing the elephant in the room. Quite literally. This perfume won’t let you go away unnoticed. It’s very strong and spicy, being the best at leaving a scent trace.

It’s such a poetic scent and one of my favourites since two years now. You can actually notice how much I’ve used out of the 100ml bottle, not really pretty for the picture, but you can genuinely see how much I love L’Elephant. Be really careful when you apply it though – for this, a small dose really goes a long way. It’s one of the strongest and most empowering scents I came across so far (trust me, I have owned a lot of different scents and perfumes are quite a hot topic in my family). If you love spicy and empowering scents, then L’Elephant is made for you. I feel it’s also underrated and not too many people own it, but that’s good news, right? I was pleasantly surprised to see it on Notino at such a great price – the airport price I got used to is definitely higher.

 Top Notes

Orange, Cloves, Cumin

Base Notes

Amber, Patchouli, Vanilla

My Ranking 10 / 10

Tom Ford Black Orchid

This was waiting on my wish list since one year now and that’s a lot to wait for a perfume as unique as this. Its woody and spicy scent make me think of a strong woman thriving in her career. A woman entrepreneur who is leading her team and own path. It makes me think of independence and freedom, like you can achieve everything you put your mind to while wearing this perfume. This will be my signature for 2019, one of the many reasons why I should feel confident in my powers and head to success with no fear. Black Orchid persists for good eight to ten hours by only applying 4 puffs. I like to apply it on the back of my neck as well for a beautiful trace. My winter collection wouldn’t be the complete without Black Orchid and I heavily rely on it to make me feel as empowered as ever. Remember, it’s a New Year, we all can have a refresh – why not explore a new scent?

Top Notes

Base Notes

Vetiver, Sandalwood, Amber, Patchouli, Vanilla, Chocolate

My Ranking 10 / 10

Dolce & Gabbana The One

This perfume has a rose scent to it, but it’s not sweet. It takes me back to my Sicilian birthday break in the summer – wind, salt and freedom. That’s how I would describe this beauty. This scent is clearly empowering and fit for an elegant lady. You can certainly wear this in winter, especially when you’re attending different festive events. It’s pleasant for people around you to feel – they’ll feel great around you and you’ll shine! I love to have it my collection as I love to alternate strong scents with a more ‘fragile’ scent. It’s one of my must haves! Give this beautiful Italian scent a try. It’s The One!
