Girly Christmas Gifts From New Look

Girly Christmas Gifts From New Look - 1

It doesn't seem to matter how old I get - I will always be a sucker for anything pink or sparkly. Recently, New Look were kind enough to let me have a gift card to spend on a couple of items from their very extensive Christmas Gift Guide section, and I was spoilt for choice with all the gorgeous, girly gems they have on offer. I've always been a fan of New Look's clothing - it's bang on trend and super affordable - but I didn't realise how much more there is to choose from. From sleepwear, shoes and handbags to makeup and homeware, it's got all your bases covered when it comes to  buying gifts for the girls this Christmas. (They also have a pretty fabulous selection for guys and teens too, but I was focused on women's gifts for the purposes of this post!)

The Christmas Jumper

The first item I went for was this gorgeous cropped pink chenille jumper*. You can't have too many jumpers in the winter months, and I think any girl would love to receive one as a Christmas present. This one is incredibly soft and warm, goes beautifully with high waisted jeans or mini skirts, and is available in a selection of different colours. I can't believe I was dubious about the return of chenille fabric - this is the cosiest jumper I own and I want to wear it every day at the moment!

The Metallic Lip Kit

I was really curious to try some New Look makeup, as I haven't tried any before. As the metallic lip trend is something I've long been wanting to experiment with, I couldn't resist this nude metallic lip kit*, which includes a lip liner pencil and liquid lipstick. The silver packaging is lovely, making this a pleasure to open, which is always nice when you're buying a gift!

The two products work beautifully together. I used the liner all over my lips as a base and then applied the liquid lipstick over the top. I love the colour and the metallic finish, and I'm definitely going to be featuring the look for evenings out this festive season. I'm also very impressed with the staying power - I've tested this through a full Sunday dinner and couple of glasses of Prosecco and it fared very well, only needing the tiniest touch up of the liquid lipstick afterwards. I don't currently have any other metallic lip kits to compare this to, but I honestly think that any makeup lover who's into the trend will love this. I certainly do!

The Mermaid Makeup Brushes

I definitely didn't need any more makeup brushes, but just look at these! This spiral handle brush set* is so pretty it just had to go into my basket as my third and final choice. Not only are the handles incredibly photogenic, but they're also a real pleasure to hold. The brushes themselves are very soft, and I particularly like the largest one for dusting on bronzer. These would make a great gift for anyone who wants some pretty looking brushes on their dressing table, not to mention any blogger friends who just can't get enough beautiful flatlay props!

There was so much else I could have chosen. Scented candles, pretty monogrammed mugs, super cute fluffy hot water bottles... New Look really do have a great selection of girly gifts and stocking fillers, and at great prices too. Take a look here if you fancy a browse!

  1. I haven't bought anything from New Look this year but have my eye on a Gilet! xx


  2. It doesn't matter how young I was, I was never a fan of pink and sparkle. I do like the look of the New Look lip kit though.
