Debenhams Beauty Exclusives & My Top Picks Christmas Gifting 2017

Urban Decay Heavy Metal Eye Glitter £15 each & Heavy Metal Eyeshadow Palette £43
Here's a landmark for you ; this is my first Christmas gift guide! I was lucky enough to be invited to the Debenhams Beauty Christmas Showcase 2017, and there were so many amazing gift ideas I just had to share. I'm bringing you exclusive products, only available at Debenhams, along with my top picks! So family and friends ; make notes on this gift guide, share this with your loved ones for ideas, or use it for own gifting inspo - be warned ; your bank account will be ruined after reading this post. 

Debenhams Beauty Exclusives 
Each year brands work in collaboration with their favourite retailers to create exclusive, limited edition versions of their Christmas offering, meaning that where you shop really can matter. It can be the difference between a standard lipstick collection, and the same lipstick collection from Debenhams dipped in glitter, in posh packaging or with an extra gift. Beauty exclusives are like the next level of Christmas gifting, and the Debenhams Beauty Exclusives 2017 are live online and in store NOW. 

Viktor & Rolf Flower Bomb and Bon Bon Special Edition 50ml - £78 each
 These Viktor & Rolf special edition bottles of Flowerbomb and Bon Bon, are my absolute favourites of the Debenhams Christmas Exclusives this year. I am a perfume addict. I display my treasured perfume collection (already featuring Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb of course) on the top of my dresser, and oh how pretty these would look amongst my current selection. If you know your loved one wears Flowerbomb or Bon Bon and you routinely stock them up at Christmas, why not go one step further and gift them one of these exquisite, exclusive bottles. A regular 50ml bottle of Flowerbomb will set you back £73 so for only £5 more you can truly knock the socks off that someone special.

Santa, I've been a really good girl this year. Pretty please can I have a special edition Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb from Debenhams under the tree?

Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette - £52.00 
The perfect palette for all elements of your personality ; create an angelic look with the left hand side of the palette and release your inner devil with the right. The packaging will not fail to impress a Kat Von D Beauty fan with the gothic double doors opening to reveal two mirrors on the inside. Wondering if the product is any good? The verdict is in on that one ; The Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette currently has a 5* rating on with customers praising the colour range, the great mix of matte and shimmer shades, people are raving about the minimal fall out and how easily the shadows blend. 
Debenhams stores and are currently the only stockists of Kat Von D Beauty in the UK. 

Make Up Forever Smoky Lash Christmas Cracker - £13 
The only bricks & mortar stores selling Make Up Forever in the UK, Debenhams bring you this super cute stocking filler. I love this one because it's an affordable option in the Beauty Hall that still has something extra special to it. In this funky Christmas cracker packaging you have a full size Make Up Forever Smoky Lash Mascara worth £17 when sold on its own. Sorry, WHAT?! That's amazing! Not only do you save a whole £4 and get exclusive packaging, you also get a patent red pouch with the Make Up Forever logo embossed on the front, so your mascara never has to roll loose in your bag. I've been wanting to try Make Up Forever for a while now so this is definitely one for my Christmas list because this beauty exclusive has it all ; fun packaging, a free gift and a total bargain!

As well as these incredible beauty exclusives, Debenhams have your Christmas fragrance covered. Gift sets pairing your favourite scent and a free gift, whether its for him or for her, mean you can make sure a relatively simple present still packs a punch.
I fell in love with this Ellie Saab Girl of Now Gift Set retailing at £58, includes a 50ml of the floral Eau De Perfume and an Ellie Saab pouch. The packaging is stunning and everything about it says 'I'M EXPENSIVE'.

If the limited edition Viktor & Rolf bottles above didn't quite float your boat or didn't pack enough of a gifting punch then don't worry Flowerbomb fans ; for £83 you can get this extraordinary gift set including a 50ml Eau De Perfume, a 50ml Body Lotion and a 50ml Shower Gel. The box is a cylinder that when closed looks like a pink sparkly pillar candle, complete with wick and the signature Viktor & Rolf bow. 

2017 has definitely been the year I've stepped up my skincare routine ; I actually cleanse, tone, exfoliate and moisturise my skin these days instead of a quick baby wipe to take my make up off before bed. Sacrilege I know. I love receiving skincare as a gift because it's one of those things I absolutely need, that can be a little pricey but that I don't want to spend my own money on. This Elemis 'The Adventuress' Bodycare Gift Set might as well have been called 'The Tabitha'. It's definitely a bit of me. For £54 you get a gorgeous gold wash bag and 6 travel size goodies.
 If you're looking for a gift set of full size products Elemis have 9 other Christmas gift sets this year, all with different skincare focus's for different skin types and including all your cult favourites. The 'Brilliantly Beautiful' Skincare gift set also caught my eye. It contains the Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser 200ml, Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm 30ml and the Superfood Facial Oil 15ml, all for £65. Debenhams are currently running an amazing gift with purchase on Elemis products at the moment where by you receive a free gift with the purchase of any two products, one to be anti-ageing. You could pick up a treat for yourself - all this shopping milarky is hard work - or use the gift as another Christmas present.

My name is Tabitha, and I'm a face mask addict. GLAMGLOW Supermud Clearing Treatment is a miracle worker and a staple in my skincare drawer. For Christmas you can get the 50g SUPERMUD in a cute gift set with 3 deluxe sample sizes of other cult GLAMGLOW face masks ; GRAVITYMUD, THIRSTYMUD and YOUTHMUD. There is also a gift set that includes THIRSTYMUD as its feature product if thats your favourite, with the other 3 as deluxe samples.

Make Up 
I sang Kat Von D Beauty's praises above but I have to give them another special mention when it comes to these cute gift sets of their cult products. The Lock It Mini Baking Duo has actually melted my heart ; for £18 you get a deluxe sample Lock-It Concealer and a deluxe sample Lock-It Setting Powder. Apart from the cuteness meltdown that obviously follows anything in miniature form, it's also a great way to try two products you would need to test together without buying full size items. If you're a fan of the Kat Von D Beauty Everlasting Lipsticks - uhh who isn't? - there are two gift sets just for you. You can get the Everlasting Lip Liner Trio, £32, in Kat's most beloved neutral shades ; Lolita, Hawkwind and Homegirl, and the Everlasting Mini Liquid Lipstick Set, £42, which includes 8 3ml shades.

Nails Inc are by far my favourite nail polish brand. Not only do they deliver incredible shades and durability but they slay at gifting every year. The two that jumped out at me at the Debenhams Christmas Beauty Showcase were the 'Wishes & Kisses' Nail Polish Set at £29 ; 4 full size nail polishes - a gold sparkle, deep red, matte pink and metallic pink - in a gorgeous star shaped box, and the 'Joyful Skin' Wreath Gift Set for £18, that contained 5 mini face masks. If you're on a budget, looking for a little stocking filler or it's the office secret Santa, I can't recommend enough the Nails Inc 'Sparkle All The Way' Nail Polish Bauble. It's only £12 and you get a full size 'Sparkle Baby' in a bauble you could hang from the tree. CUTE RIGHT!?

It's safe to say I'm feeling sufficiently christmassy now. I have some amazing ideas for my own list to Santa but also gifts for my friends and family, and I'm pretty sure my bank card will be taking quite a beating in Debenhams this year. I hope this gift guide helped inspire you or was that stroke of gifting genius you needed to get in your friends, sisters or partners good books.
What do you think of the Debenhams Beauty Exclusives this year? Is there anything I loved that you're adding to your own Christmas wish list?
