£20 & Under Beauty Gift Guide 2019

AD - Gifted by Soap Folk

I've mentioned before that I love reading blogger's gift guides and they've often inspired gift ideas for family and friends. I think it's a great way to find presents for your loved ones and to find something different and in places you may never have looked for gifts. I've created many gift guides but this time I've got actual products to share with you that may or may not be gifts for others... *ehem* trying not to spoil any. Today, I've got a beauty gift guide of which the majority is cruelty-free (I can't say they all are because I'm not sure) and are all £20 or under. I think they're all fab gifts for anyone who loves a little pampering in their life. For some beauty Christmas gift ideas, scroll down!

As you can see, most of these products are for those who love a little pampering in their life and always perfect gifts for friends, family and secret Santa. Everything on this list is either £20 or under and personally great value for what they are.

Soap Folk - Travel Soap Gift Set (6 Mini Bars)

Six soap bars wrapped in paper and padded with paper straw in a brown box.
A bar of soap slid out of the packaging and on top of a brown box with other soaps inside.

First up on my gift guide is this fantastic cruelty-free Travel Soap Gift Set from Soap Folk for £8. The people over at Soap Folk kindly gifted this to me to share with you and honestly, they smell absolutely amazing. There are six different scents and these soaps are handmade. This would be a lovely stocking filler for someone who likes to travel a lot, an eco-friend, homeowner or just appreciates a great smelling soap. It's a great gift and something I would absolutely love to receive.

 Soap & Glory Gift Sets

A rectangular based pyramid box with the words Happy Holid-Eyes on the front with a loop on top and a metal star tin with the words Soap Hero on and with a loop on top.
A metal tin with a pink soap inside. A cartoon of Wonder Woman is engraved on the soap.

If you saw my Instagram a couple of weeks ago, you would have seen me talk through a bunch of gift sets that were also kindly sent to me by Soap & Glory. There were a lot of amazing gifts that were all under £20 but I thought these two would be fantastic as stocking fillers or extras that you'd pop on the tree thanks to their hanging abilities! The Happy Holid-Eyes (£6) is great for make-up lovers (that glitter is amazing) and the Soap Hero (£6) soap-on-a-rope just smells amazing and is a great present for anyone who loves a good smelling soap again or shower accessories. Many of Soap & Glory's gift sets are under the £20 mark but you'll have to wait for my Soap & Glory gift guide to see all the things I have from them.

The Body Shop Gift Set

A pink box with Christmassy illustrations and a brown twine ribbon.
A selection of soap, scrubs, shower gels in pink packaging.

Every year I buy someone something from The Body Shop. They always create the best gift sets in all their scents and this year is no exception. I absolutely adore their rose scent fruity scents and I really like some of their Christmassy scents this year too. This gift set is the most expensive in this gift guide at £20 and is the Petal-Soft British Rose Gift Set. In this set, you'll receive a shower gel, loofah, body butter, soap and body scrub. For what you get, this is a great price!


A pink shower gel and two bath bombs. One is white with a blue snowflake and the other is shaped like a fireball.

Lush is a no-brainer when it comes to Christmas gifts and a great present or stocking filler. It's something I love to receive amongst many every year and often buy for myself if I haven't been in the sales the next day. Snow Fairy shower gel is a MUST and a bath bomb is too. Lush have some amazing sets but I really like the idea of buying some pieces separately sometimes. Here I've picked up Snow Fairy shower gel (£10), the Snow Fairy bath bomb (£4.95) and the Fireball bath bomb (£4.95) all of which smell a-mazing. Get them as soon as you can though because they're all limited edition!!!

Harry Potter Dark Arts Collection

A green and black tin with the deathly hallows logo from Harry Potter on the top.
A flat lay of beauty products in black and grey. There are face masks, a pouch, bath bomb, nail polish, eye mask and makeup brush.

I think it would only be wrong for me to not include something Harry Potter beauty-related now that Boots have released a whole range of it! I'm actually yet to find out if this is cruelty-free and can't find out for now but I'll assume so as it's Boots own brand alongside No.7 and Soap & Glory. This Harry Potter Dark Arts Tin includes so many amazing things for a Harry Potter fan who loves a good pamper. It comes with a dark arts eye mask, two nail polishes, a lipstick, cauldron bath bomb, two sheet masks, a cosmetic brush, cosmetics pouch and nail decals. It's an awful lot for just £15! Yes. JUST £15. I mean what's not to love here?

I really hope this gift guide inspires someone to buy something here or at least visit some of these brands for gifts because I personally love all of them. I think pampering beauty gifts are some of the best and always appreciated at Christmas. What's your favourite thing from this gift guide and who would you gift it to?
