DIY Beauty Box & Gift Ideas!

It was recently one of my very best friend's birthdays and I wanted a really thoughtful gift. She has always loved looking at what comes in my various Beauty Boxes, so I thought I would try and put together a DIY Beauty Box!

I bought some full size products, but to make it a true sample box, I sourced some amazing samples for her to try too. And to make it even more authentic, I used an empty She Said Beauty box and bought some wrapping paper and some shredded tissues and ribbons to wrap everything in!

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Lip Balm £1.79 (Superdrug)
2x Finishing Touches Nail Stickers in Pink and White £1.99 each (Superdrug)
3x Make Up Academy Nail Polishes in Shade 4, 5 and 16 £1 each (Superdrug)
Montagne Jeunesse Chocolate Face Masque £1 (Superdrug)
AEOS Skincare sample set £3 (Latest In Beauty)
Tresemme Split Remedy Trio sample set 3 for £1.50 (Latest in Beauty)
Bright Eyed by SUPER by Dr Nicholas Perricone sample 3 for £1.50 (Latest in Beauty)
St Tropez SPF 30 Protection with Tan Enhancer sample 3 for £1.50 (Latest in Beauty)
Caudalie Vinoperfect Peel Mask sample £0.65 (Naturisimo)
Fresh Berry Bath Blaster £3.69 (Amazon)

So, altogether that comes to around £18.60 which really isn't too bad at all for a great gift! I would definitely appreciate getting something like this, and I know she will love it. But, being one of my best friends, I could not resist buying a few more cute things that I found...

Cath Kidston Crush Mug £4 (Amazon)
4x Options Hot Chocolate sachets 4 for £1 (Tesco)
Candle £3.70 approx. (F+F at Tesco)

Altogether, that comes to £27.50 - not too bad, huh?

I also advised some of our mutual male friends on what to buy her, and chose a Pomegranate & Raspberry Reed Diffuser £15 (The Body Shop).

I hope this post has given you some inspiration or ideas for your own beauty box! I loved writing this post so much that I think I will be doing a regular feature with gift ideas (I have a ton of them) so be on the look out!
