When I am making up my holiday wish list I want items that make me feel pampered. I try to pick small luxuries that don’t break the bank, but still feel indulgent and special. Here a few picks that are total self-care items that you will enjoy all year long.samples, affiliate links
When I think pampering my first thought it lingerie. I love lingerie that is comfortable but also has a sensuality…something beautiful, classic, and easy to wear. I am loving the lingerie at IDentity Lingerie which is a small family run lingerie brand who prides themselves on promoting a healthy and positive body image. They feature Handmade Lingerie that is truly gorgeous, with sizes that will suit everyone. My pick is the Long Burgundy Paisley Satin Dressing Gown (
£90.00 £36.00), on sale now – it was about $100 US, and now it’s 60% off.
This is a very elegant satin robe that has a beautiful paisley print. This is a robe to wear at home with a great cup of espresso while sitting in front of a fire, or to wear at a girls night when you are all lounging at home sipping wine. It is so soft and comfortable and it is a classic that will never go out of style. Also, IDentity Lingerie offers free delivery and returns.
Another indulgence is really, really great coffee. Difference Coffee has truly incredible options that always make me feel special and pampered. They use the finest beans ‘on the planet’ – this is the coffee you will find in 30 Michelin-starred restaurants and 24 luxury hotels around the world. Difference Coffee uses the highest scoring specialty coffee beans, and they are roasted by Jonny England who is one of just four licensed Q graders and is also the main judge of the World’s Brewer’s Cup and the World Barista Championship.
My pick is Jamaica Blue Mountain for its chocolate notes. In fact, it’s called ‘Chocolate Truffle in a Cup, and the aroma is dark cocoa beans mixed with macadamia nuts. The taste is ‘a creamy and balanced cup with low perceived acidity and full rich taste’. Prices start at $2 per capsule at www.differencecoffee.com.
One more super luxurious gift that should be on any self-care wish list is the IT Cosmetics Limited Edition Your Brush Magic! Luxe Makeup Brush Gift Set, a 5 piece face and eye brushes plus clutch. This is a truly gorgeous set with the most plush and sumptuous brushes ever. Add in the truly stunning black clutch and it’s luxury all the way! The set is a $192.50 value and sells for $150. Included are a Foundation Brush, Concealer Brush, Powder Brush, Shadow/Smudger Brush, Blush Brush, and Clutch.
All of the Heavenly Luxe brushes has cruelty-free hair and custom-cut shapes, and they all deliver airbrushed results. I have long been a fan of IT Cosmetics brushes and this collection has every staple brush you need.
Fill out your holiday wish list with things that make you feel good – items that will pamper and please you all year round, like the IDentity Burgundy Robe, Difference Coffee, and IT Cosmetics LE Your Brush Magic! Luxe Makeup Brush Gift set. You definitely deserve it. – Lisa
