Because the best things come in small packages

1. Violent Eyes Bronze Glitteratti,  £4.99 Designed for those who find eye make-up application to be a challenge, the makers of Violent Lips have just released these glitzy eye transfers. Gentle, easy to apply and without any unsightly smudges, a pack of Violent Eyes comes with four pairs of eye transfers to suit your desired thickness and size.

2. Leighton Denny Crystal Nail File, £12.50 An absolute nail care essential, the miniature version of Leighton Denny’s cult tool is perfect for keeping on hand in a bag or purse. Give the gift of this nail file and you’re giving them great nails all year round.

3. L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream Travel Size, £7.00 Christmas comes complete with cold weather, which means skin can be much dryer. The rich properties of this L’Occitane hand cream will be just the thing to soothe and protect sore hands (not to mention it smells divine, too).

4. Clarins Eye Quartet Mineral Palette, £30.00 With the party season ahead, this quartet from Clarins contains a blend of colours suitable for creating a number of smoky eyes. From subtle and bronzed to dark and intense, mix and match these four colours to suit a night on the tiles or an evening by the fire.

5. Tweezerman Harajuku Lovers Slant Tweezer – Love, £21.50 There are no finer tweezers than those of Tweezerman, but this recent collaboration with Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku Lovers line will mean that opening a pair will be even more of a treat than ususal! Get them while they’re hot as they’re a limited edition.

6. Nuxe Ultra Nourishing Lip Balm, £9.50 Get your lips mistletoe-ready with this creamy, hydrating blend from Nuxe. Suitable for men and women alike, it will aid a smooth transition between the cold outdoors and the warmth of central heating without any painful cracks or dryness.

7. Crabtree & Evelyn Winter Garden Large Poured Candle, £25.00 For a warm, festive feel to your home, look no further than the Winter Garden or Noel ranges from Crabtree and Evelyn. This candle captures the scent of a frosty, green garden and allows 65 hours of burning time to create a dimly lit Christmas ambience.

8. Paul & Joe Pearl Foundation Primer Bon Bon, £23.00 A discontinued product brought back due to popular demand, this primer is perfect for creating that dewy, glowing base. Paul & Joe’s products are always packaged to perfection and your recipient will be just as excited to open it as they are to use it. They may even be more taken by the bottle and the box!

9. Guerlain Meteorites Compact, £34.00 Every lady needs an elegant compact, and there are no prettier than those of Guerlain. Newly added to the enormous range at feelunique.com, you can have it delivered to your door without any additional postage costs or unbearable Christmas queues.

10. Peaches and Cream Eyelashes, £3.90 A party essential all year round, one pair of Peaches lashes will last you for all of your Christmas outings. With the widest variety of lashes and by far the best value for money, I’d recommend 09 for a natural look, 26 for a feline eye or 29 if you’re going for long and fluttery.

11. Dior Vernis Grand Bal Nail Lacquer, £20.00 Add some retro glamour to your loved one’s stocking with the decadent new range from Dior. The red ‘Marilyn’ shade is classic and will suit any winter outfit as well as marrying perfectly with the festive colour scheme.

12.  OPI Vintage Minnie Mini Collection, £12.50 Inspired by the colours of the iconic Minnie Mouse, this miniature set from OPI is just the thing for a girlie girl. Complete with a quick-dry top coat, it will be compact and practical enough for last minute nails on the go.
