The 'blow the budget' gifts that Beauty Bible (really, really) loves...
As the final instalment in our Beauty Bible Gift Guide 2017, we once again bring you an edit of the presents that we'd be truly delighted to find under the tree ourselves. (Definitely too generous for a stocking, these.) These are the absolute 'splurges' – products over fifty quid that we think are really worth the money, and will delight any recipient.
Aurelia Mind and Body Ritual
Great news - Aurelia are offering 15% for readers with the code BB15 - it's valid until 24th December, and shaves a little off the price of this and anything else you fancy, on their site. This is a lovely indulgence, a limited edition Wakefulness Aromatic Candle (please can this NOT be a limited edition, Aurelia?), together with the equally sublimely-scented, gentle on skin Restorative Cream Body Cleanser, to be followed by Firm & Replenish Body Serum – and all beautifully packaged in an Aurelia pink box.

This Works Dream Big
We go to sleep dreaming of this. We go to sleep VERY FAST, dreaming of this. Every product – except the fab, keeps-the-light-out eye mask (which is printed with celestial gorgeousness) – is infused with the soporific signature blend of chamomile, vetiver and lavender. We are probably the biggest fans of this range on the planet – and this is the ultimate. (Contents are worth £98, NB.)
Neal's Yard Radiance Wild Rose Collection
Alongside the Beauty Bible Award-winning Wild Rose Balm – one of the beauty world's most effective multi-taskers – this features the sumptuous Wild Rose Hand Cream (brilliant overnight), along with the Wild Rose Body Elixir. The whole collection harnesses the antioxidant power of rosehip oil – and the scent has us dreaming of summer...

Tata Harper Time to Shine
'Cult' beauty name Tata Harper's luxury natural products (which are appropriately enough stocked at cultbeauty.co.uk) are showcased here in a box that's trying VERY hard to be a bathroom cabinet – and contains almost as many products as your average bathroom cabinet, actually: full sizes of Beautifying Face Oil and Illuminating Moisturizer, alongside travel-friendly sizes of Deluxe Regenerating Cleanser, Deluxe Illuminating Eye Crème and Deluxe Resurfacing Mask – everything you need for natural radiance, in one quite 'different' box.

Aromatherapy Associates Time to Sleep
Absolutely no apologies from us for featuring another Aromatherapy Associates treat in one of our gift run-downs. In this keepsake 'London scene' box, find a fabulous super-sized Deep Relax Bath & Shower Oil (worth £89 alone), along with a 20 ml Relax Body Oil and a rollerball that also features the soothing, relaxing blend of camomile, sandalwood and vetiver. If this doesn't nudge someone sleepwards, we'll be very surprised.
