Boots Christmas Catalogue Wishlist

If I am being completely honest, Christmas has been on my agenda for a few months (on and off of course - mainly listening to Michael Buble mid- summer is the beginning!) I spotted on the good old social media that the Boots catalogue has come out, then spent a while searching the website, looking for all the 3 for 2 gifts and compiling a list, so I figured I share my favourites today - keep the blog to date and all that! 

First up is French Connection; last year I bought a few French Connection gift sets in the sale, and then discovered, after years of overlooking French Connection, that they are not only good for slogan t - shirts, but their beauty range is damn fine too! The scent is just the best. I am just coming to the end of my body lotions and spray, so I'll be stocking up with the FCUK The Body Edit Pamper Pack which is £20 - I'll probably end up buying a few to see me through next year! I missed out on hand wash & lotion in the sales last year, but this year I'll be buying the Hand Edit which is £12.50. At £14 is the The Eye Edit ; I'm not normally one to buy new palettes, as I normally stick to my Urban Decay Naked 2, but the colours on this palette have me hooked, especially the orange tones. The FCUK The Brush Edit is another purchase I'll definitely be making as I'm running short on make up brushes. Their mens range looks pretty snazzy too, with the Mens FCUK Pyjamas and Body Duo , at £25 and Boxers and Body Duo at £16. And to top it all off, every single set above is 3 for 2!  
I love the beauty ranges Boots have to offer, and have posted on here over the years my favourites from Champneys to Joules to Ted Baker. The first new range I am super excited about is the Millie Mackintosh range that's just launched - it is so gorgeously packed and there are lots of different sets to choose from - I like the look of the Shape Up kit at £12.50. Every year I like to buy some beauty crackers for Christmas Eve, and so I am so pleased that Joules have decided to launch a Cracker Selection this year for £10. Another eye palette that has caught my eye is the NYX In Your Element Palette - the water edition. I'm a Pisces so clearly attracted to blue and water! It's £25, and not in the 3 for 2 (boo!) but you get lots of different shades in each palette (there's Earth, Fire too!) One brand I've finally caved in for is the Zoella range ; the Christmas Cookie Reed Diffuser has been on my list ever since I saw the Zoella press day all over my Instagram & Twitter feeds - I love a candle, I love Christmas Cookie, so instead of buying the candle (which I already have a Yankee Candle version of leftover!) I thought I'd get a reed diffuser!
Favourite Tipples - this is not something I'd normally buy from Boots to be honest other than the Fizz Selection  (£12.50) because hello Kir Royale - get in my life, but I felt this year they have so many good alcoholic gift sets to offer as well as a huge food range! The Baileys sets are gorge, with the Baileys Flavour Selection (£12.50) and Hot Chocolate Mug Set (£10) - I had one of those mug sets two years ago, and have no idea where the mug is so will definitely be replacing it because I'm all about mug cosies! For beer & cider lovers there is the British Ale Selection (£10), Cider Tasting Selection (£10) & Doom Bar Sea Fury Chalice Glass (£12.50) - there was also cocktail sets and gin selections this year added!

I'm ridiculously looking forward to getting my hands on the Boots catalogue (hopefully tomorrow when I go home - as Mum usually picks me and my sister up a copy each!) and even more so to actually going shopping and spending my money on presents for everyone (and me!)
