Every time you give a colourful pair of socks you are also making a gift for someone you do not know but needs warmth and love. Society Socks has fun socks for both men and women, bundles for men, customised socks and subscription boxes.

Designed and produced in Reykjavik, AURUM uses only recycled gold and silver and ethically sourced gems.

Picture Organic Clothing

Picture Organic Winter Coats

Back in 2008, a group of three French friends joined forces and creativity for the environment. Knowing that the textile industry is responsible for around 8% of carbon emissions, they built a sustainable label using organic cotton, linen, recycled textiles and bio-polyester made from... cane sugar! More than half of its outwear is made with this natural sweetness. To stay warm and stylish, we found out that the MURAX JKT is a very flattering jacket to give this Christmas. Plus, it can be worn alone or under another coat for extra protection.

Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide

December is here, and we have all cracked open the first week of advent doors. Before you know it, the big day will be here…and some of us (you know who you are) may be beginning to panic about all the presents and stocking fillers, or Secret Santa gifts we still need to find. Even if your Christmas Gift list is all wrapped up already, there is always space in the stockings for one or two more little goodies!

Fashions Finest has, once again scoured the internet and high street to fine the most fabulous gifts, with last minute ordering still available, so that you can guarantee your gifts will arrive in time for Christmas.

The Body Shop

Our first suggestion when looking for last minute gifts and stocking filler ideas is The Body Shop.

This fabulous shop is quite literally bursting with festive beauty treats for everyone in the family, from the youngest to the oldest, the boys and the girls too. You are bound to find something perfect for your loved ones, even this late in the day.

Fashions Finest loves that The Body Shop are also making a donation from every single transaction until 31st December to their charity partner End Youth Homelessness. Over 110,000 young people aged between 16-25 years in the UK are homeless or are at risk of homelessness, and The Body Shop’s donation to the charity’s Housing Fund will help ensure the most vulnerable people across the UK & Ireland get the help they desperately need to secure a home of their own.

With a fundraising target of £150,000 we can help vulnerable young people in the UK this season at the same time as buying lovely presents – we think that seals the deal.

Here are our suggestions. We have seen and tried all of these products, and love them all! Whether you want to save money or splash out on beauty products – from vegan beauty gifts to male grooming kits, everything is in stock right now. Just follow the links to order now.

Fruity Lip Balm Gift Star

In this well presented star pack there are 5 deliciously fruity smelling pots of lip balm, which (almost) made us want to have a lick as well as a sniff! For £12.00 Fashions Finest loves that they can be given as a beautiful gift as they are, or separated into 5 small triangular gifts to be divvied out as stocking fillers, or as a part of a pick and mix gift. A versatile gift if ever there was one. We also worked out that for only £2.40 per pot of lip balm; you are getting a lot for your money with this gift!

Festive Berry Duo

A warm and fruity, Christmassy smelling gift, that made us want to dive in the bath and wash away the day with a perfect team of body scrub and small bath lily, and a tub of body butter in a lovely gift box for £12.00.

Fashions Finest loves that the soft scent of Christmas lingered on the skin after buffing and moisturising with this festive berry duo. This would be a great gift for both bath and shower users alike, and fabulous for a real Christmas lover, who quite literally wants to dive into the season – scent and all!

British Rose Hand & Nail Kit

A small and beautiful gift box containing a nail file and hand cream, and the scent of summer. Fashions Finest loves how quickly this hand cream is absorbed into hands, with no sticky or slimy residue. Perfect for a handbag companion. At only £6.00 this well presented gift box will be a well-received gift, and perfect for your Secret Santa, or as a stocking filler for a lady.

Shower Gel Set

A fabulous gift for those who enjoy a shower, this set of fruity cleansers will brighten up anyone’s morning routine. Fashions Finest loves the cost too - only £6.00 for the set. These shower gels smell great, and are thick enough to get a good lather up before the water washes it all away. A quality gift, or add on this Christmas.

Hair Slides

Give a girl the gift of positivity! These little hair grips pack a punch with their bright colours and fun affirmations. Fabulous for a stylish young lady’s stocking filler, or as part of a gift. You could even buy them for yourself or your bestie, because at £5.00 for two hair slides, they are a small price to pay for looking stylish and feeling great!

Soothing Almond, Milk & Honey Gift Bag

This is one of our more expensive suggestions at £45.00, but in our opinion well worth the price with all of the products inside, as well as the bag. Fashions Finest loves the full range of soothing body products, which would make a wonderful gift for someone who has sensitive skin which needs lots of TLC. The lovely bag is a fabulous size, and can be used as a holiday wash bag or make-up bag, but if you wanted a smaller option, there are other packs available in the same range. With the delicate, creamy and clean smell of almonds, this beautiful kit would be great gift for the lady with either young or mature skin.

White Musk Fragrance Kit For Men

Fashions Finests choice – out of many – as a gift for the men. Although we wouldn’t usually go for anything musk scented, we loved the combination of lavender, geranium, musk and sandalwood, which makes this great smelling trio of shower gel, anti-perspirant and after shave fragrance. The end result is a deep earthy and aromatic woody scent, which we loved the smell of. Great at £25.00 as a gift for a man you know enjoys woody scents. It also comes in a lovely gift bag with a really interesting wood look to it. Just fabulous!

Camomile Makeup Removal Kit

We loved this lovely combination of Camomile Gentle Eye Make Up Remover, Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter and a Muslin Cloth, presented in a gift box for £18.00. Our experience was one of fresh looking, soft and bright skin, clear of stubborn make-up too. Fashions Finest thinks this would be a fantastic gift for a young lady who enjoys wearing a lot of make-up, but doesn’t enjoy taking it off as much! With the fresh and clean smell, and suitability for contact lens wearers, this kit would encourage even the most unwilling to take care of their skin every night. The added soft muslin cleansing cloth is a lovely touch too.

Jimmy’s Christmas Iced Coffee Stocking

Screenshot 2020 12 09 at 093759
Family-owned brand Jimmy’s Iced Coffee have launched the ultimate coffee lover selection box – in the form of a Christmas stocking. Handmade with 100% organic cotton and with the brand’s signature crown print, the stocking comes complete with the full Jimmy’s Iced Coffee range and Jimmy’s sparkling Coffee Cola. If you are looking for the perfect gift for a coffee loving individual, who just doesn’t need anything, Fashions Finest says this is the gift for them.

At £20.00 each, and stuffed with different flavours of Jimmy’s Iced Coffee, the ready-to-drink iced coffees only contain Rainforest Alliance Certified Arabica coffee, low sugar and are poured into 100% recyclable packaging. The Dorset-based brand ticks all the boxes, from sustainability to convenience, to knowing who you’re buying from.

Fashions Finest loved the twist on some Christmas classics, like Jimmy’s Coffee Cola. This surprisingly lovely iced coffee concoction is a game-changing grown-up drink. We just want to know why we haven’t tried this before! A combination of cold brew coffee and sparkling cola, Coffee Cola has notes of cola nut and vanilla, with 50% less sugar than other prominent cola brands.

Get a hold of this grown-up Christmas stocking gift from the website, and have it delivered to you, or straight to the person you are gifting to, with a lovely personalised note added for free! A super easy (and delicious) Christmas gift option this year.

Experimental Perfume Club

EPC Perfume image result
EPC is an independent London based perfume house and open access laboratory founded by Emmanuelle Moeglin - a professionally trained perfumer with fifteen years’ experience working with international perfume brands.

EPC specialises in creating niche and bespoke fragrances. They have a host of different products and workshops that would make wonderful gifts, all of them bespoke!

Fashions Finest loves the fact that this gift is a totally unique scent – made specifically for the individual. We had a go at creating our own perfume, by answering some simple questions on the EPC website, to reveal our own unique ‘Fashions Finest scent’. If you are creating a present for a loved one, we think you should be able to answer all of the questions for them, depending on how well you know them of course…or you could just buy a gift voucher from EPC so that they could do the whole process for themselves.

From these unique aromas identified by the questions answered, EPC will create a totally Bespoke Discovery set, with a selection of 6 bottles with different scents that will perfectly compliment your skin and your lifestyle, and of course - are totally unique to you! For £36.00, the set also comes with a voucher for you to spend on your favourite full size scent. Delivery was quick, and the set come in a beautiful gift box too. The scents were perfect, and we loved every single one of them. The scents last the whole day, and we were even asked what we were wearing by relations.
If that is not enough, and you really want to go all out, buy your loved one the ultimate experience of the Perfumer’s Atelier for £450.00 (payments can be made in instalments) This is a unique luxury educational perfume collector’s set designed to be an ideal gift for both perfume connoisseur’s, or for individuals interested in learning more about the art and science of fragrance. The collection is a tool to help train your nose to recognise different scents, learn how they are used in perfumes and how they work together to create fragrances.

EPC bespoke fragrances are most definitely a fabulous gift for anyone. Especially those trend setters and fashion conscious individuals who would love to have their very own unique fragrance made for them, and named for them too!

Tatti Lashes

Screenshot 2020 12 07 at 120206These lovely gift packs from Tatti Lashes are all available to buy online, with next day delivery still available, so they would make fabulous as a stocking fillers, or even a secret Santa gift for the girl who loves her lashes.

Created by two friends who have been in the beauty industry for over 10 years, the aim of Tatti Lashes is to provide quality false eyelashes at affordable prices. Fashions Finest loves that every pair of these beautiful lashes can actually be re-used up to 20 times! There are plenty of types and styles to choose from, and the website offers help with training on how to attach lashes professionally too.

Even though 2020 has been a bit of a wash out for us all (maybe that is an understatement!) Tatti Lashes is offering the promise of a better 2021, by helping us to prepare for all our social engagements to come.

Tatti Lashes 'Festive Feels' and 'Naughty but Nice' gift sets are both £25.00 each, which is a saving of over £11 if they were purchased individually. Fashions Finest loves the fact that both of the gift sets contain 4 different best-selling lash sets, each of them are housed in their own individual and beautiful festive box, with a mirror, making them perfect for on the go use.
Both of these gift boxes would be great as a gift on their own, or split up into 4 different lash packs to put into a mixed gift pack, or a stocking. (Or just buy them for yourself! Go on – you know you want too)

So Eco Ultimate Brush Collection Gift Set

80 40 080 So Eco Ultimate Set FOP result
A beautiful gift for anyone who wears make-up with this delightful brush set. If you are anything like us, a make-up brush set lasts many, many more years that a bottle of make-up, and we could probably all do with a new set.

The Ultimate Gift Set is a comprehensive kit containing expertly selected tools to give the best make up application every time, presented in a beautiful gift box. The kit contains a collection of 9 essential makeup tools which cover everything from your complexion to your brows and eye makeup. With stylish, highly sustainable bamboo handles, 100% cruelty-free synthetic taklon bristles and recycled aluminium ferrules, this gift set really is the full package.

The Ultimate Set is available from a variety of online retailers including So In Vogue and Amazon, for £30.00 a set. Fashions Finest say this is a fabulous last minute gift, and ticks so many boxes, including eco-friendly, beautiful and useful too! A win win for any lucky person this Christmas.

No Secrets

Mini Home Spa result
No Secrets is a small UK brand, started as a result of founder Lorna’s search for beauty products with all-natural ingredients, due to her allergies to chemicals often found in cosmetics. All the ingredients used are 100% derived from plants and naturally occurring sources and free from preservatives.

Fashions Finest loves the No Secrets ‘Mini Home Spa’ available online for £22.00 each. This small but perfectly packed gift box contains a tub of bath jelly, a jar of hand butter and a votive candle. This gift would make a super stocking filler for the individual who has skin allergies, or who really needs to know what they are putting onto their skin.

The little kit is an award winning, skin softening and smoothing miracle in a box, and Fashions Finest loves that it is available in two of No Secret’s signature scents: ‘One’ – Fresh & Uplifting and ‘Four’ – Sensual & Calming. Both of which smell divine.

Art – De - Parfum

GIN TONIC BB FINAL NEW version result
Free from GMO, CMR and any colourants, Art de Parfum fragrances customers can rest safe in the knowledge that their choice of scent is both beautiful and ethically pure. All the product packaging can be recycled and will degrade naturally, leaving no harmful imprint on the environment. The fragrances themselves are unisex, 100% made in France and can be purchased internationally directly through the website. Fashions Finest had a sneaky sniff of a few of the scents on offer, and they are indeed lovely and have no problem lasting throughout the day on your skin. We say they would be a great for the younger man or woman. Their taster pack is the perfect present, allowing someone to discover all 6 unisex fragrances from this luxury house, for only £20.00.

Fashions Finest loves that these samples come in a small gift box, and also contain a voucher for £20 off a full size bottle of your choice! (so the sample box really doesn’t cost anything at all!) Full size bottles of their scent cost from £114.00 each.

Happy shopping ladies and gentlemen, and have a wonderful Christmas and New Year, from all of us here at Fashions Finest.
