Christmas Gift Ideas | Beauty & Fragrance at TJ Hughes*

Urgh. I hate to admit it [like, really hate to admit it] but Summer is over and we're cruising towards Christmas at an alarming speed. The shops have all their giftsets out, there's deccys everywhere, sales have started kicking in & advent calendar mania has struck... meaning I a] lose all self control and wanna buy everything I see and b] have began starting to think about Christmas gifts for friends & family. I just can't control myself when it comes to giftsets and homeware right now, I don't know what it is.

I do enjoy shopping for other people and thinking of gifts that'll [going full Kondo here] spark joy in the faces of their recipients.. but it can be so expensive, yeno? And during the festive season, it seems like my [and many other people's] sense of sensibility when it comes to spending flies right out the window and heads left down the M62 for a few weeks. No wonder Natwest kicked me out.

This is where today's finds come in - genuine, luxury high-end fragrance and beauty brands from TJ Hughes. Yes, you read that right - I'd forgotten that this department store of dreams was an option to shop from too, but I'm super glad I've rediscovered them... especially as their main store is in my very own city [Liverpool.] TJ Hughes specialise in home, fashion, fragrance, garden furniture, technology and electrical items; with premium brands at up to 70% off RRP. WHICH SOUNDS HELLA GOOD TO ME.

For this post, I picked out some gorgeous new designer perfumes - perfume is one of my favourite gifts to receive at Christmas due to how luxurious it is & how the scent can evoke memories of the big day for years to come. I didn't even realise TJ's had some of the big names that they do on their website - and their savings are impressive - so I defo wanted to share them with you today.

First up, I need to profess my unbridled, fiery love for this perfume; which has become a firm fave of mine and is one I'll defo buy again. Looks-wise, fragrance-wise and price-wise [thanks to TJ Hughes] this Jimmy Choo L'Eau Eau de Toilette* has my heart - it's all I've been reaching for since it arrived with me.

It's quite a sweet but warming fragrance - hard to describe, but I'm sure you'll recognise it if you have a sniff. There's been many dupes of this perfume released over the years [I remember when I worked in Lipsy we used to sell one] but nothing compares to the real thing. Good sized bottle, beautifully packaged & designed and a lovely gift to give or receive this year.

Next up, a classic. The prettiest, sweetest fragrance in the most Instagrammable bottle; Vera Wang Princess Eau Du Toilette* [RRP £60, but for sale at TJ's for just under £20!] There's not even that much else to say on this one - it's just everything. Affordable, a great size, the prettiest addition to any dresser and a strong, sweet aroma you'll definitely make new memories to. I have another version of this iconic scent - Hippie Princess, so expanding my Princess collection is right up my proverbial street.

Last up, the perfect stocking filler for any girly girl this year; Victoria's Secret fragrance mists [I chose the Victoria's Secret Glitter Hustle Body Mist* for this post, because sparkle and hustle are TOTES MY BAG.] Everyone loves a bitta VS [me included] and these gorgeously lux mists are the loveliest extra to throw in a bundle of prezzies. I am obsessed with the scent of my new glitter mist; I've literally sprayed all my bedding with it and it's sat on my bedside table right now... these bottles last forever and the smell is rich and long-lasting, not like an el-cheapo spray version. LOVE.

I was really impressed by the variety of brands, products and reductions on the TJ Hughes website; as I trawled through it [all] it to pick out the absolute huns for this post. I'll definitely keep checking their site to keep up-to-date with the latest offers - due to the fantastic prices and nationwide delivery service, many of these fab deals sell out pretty quickly I've noticed, so I defo don't wanna miss out on a barg... especially on the run up to Christmas!
