How's that Xmas gift shopping coming along. Personally I just have a few pressies for our little boys to go (and maybe to usual pressie for myself too ;-) But in case you're not faring as well, today I've got a selection of great gift ideas all under $50…  

Let's start off with the EcoTools Boho Luxe Travel Set. This makeup brush set is a gorgeous gift set containing three travel double ended makeup brushes, and a convenient and cute boho inspired cosmetic bag for storage of the brushes. The brushes are super soft, and the usual high quality that EcoTools is known for. The gift set includes;
  • Foundation Brush
  • Concealer Brush
  • Powder Brush
  • Blush Brush
  • Eye Shading Brush
  • Angled Crease Brush
  • Cosmetic Bag 
The brushes also have the same cute boho printed design on the shafts to match the cosmetic bag, and really include all the necessities making it the perfect travel companion, and the perfect gift for any makeup lover.
For the body, you just cannot go past this Revitalizing Gift Set from Weleda, containing Age Revitalising Evening Primrose Body Wash (200ml) and an Age Revitalising Evening Primrose Body Lotion (200ml), which thanks to the added evening primrose helps strengthen the skin and increase its resilience all while adding essential and intense moisture and nourishment.
The Body Wash is a very gentle and plant based, and the added macadamia nut oil and evening primrose leaves your skin feeling clean and ever so soft after use. Following with the Body Lotion, which is perfect for mature skin, as the evening primrose, sesame oil, shea butter and gotu kola extract helps stimulate the restorative processes of the skin. The Body Lotion has a nice thick consistency, yet it absorbs quickly and easily into the skin, leaving it soft and feeling so nice. Both products are 100% certified natural and organic, and free from any synthetic ingredients including preservatives, colourants, fragrances of raw materials derived from mineral oils.
Both products have the most divine scent from the added cardamom, magnolia and sandalwood, and will leave you smelling beautiful for hours.
For the feet, there's this limited edition Into The Garden Pedicure set from Mary Kay. This gift set contains absolutely everything you need for fresh pampered feet, all ready for all the New Year's parties, including;  
  • Satin Feet Foot Scrub, 85g
  • 10 foot fizzies  
  • One pair toe separators
  • Emery board
  • White mesh cosmetic bag
The Foot Fizzies are perfect to add to a foot bath, to not only freshen up tired feet, but they also help soften the feet, ready for a go with the foot scrub, which then helps gently buff away all dead skin cells, to leave your feet feeling soft and smooth. Both product have the most gorgeous floral scent. The gift set also includes an emery board to file and buff your nails and a pair or toe separators to make polishing your toe nails that little bit easier. Everything comes packaged in white mesh cosmetic bag that makes storage of the products super easy too.
Then there's the new fragrance from Elizabeth Arden, Always Red Femme EDT, which is a lighter and fresher version than the previous Always Red. The fragrance contains;  
  • Top Notes: Top Notes: Blackcurrant Bud, Pear, Lemon
  • Middle Notes: Peach Blossom, Muguet, Jasmine
  • Base Notes: Vanilla, Moss, Cedar Wood and Patchouli
It is a gorgeous fruity scent where you can instantly smell the blackcurrant, but as it dries down, the pear and vanilla and not least lemon, makes it fresher. The added jasmine and patchouli adds a lovely fresh floral touch too. The fragrance, in spite of 'only' being an EDT, has a very long wear, and in fact, I don't feel the need to reapply all throughout the day to maintain the scent. It comes in the most gorgeous bottle, which is a new version of the Elizabeth Arden Red door, only it is a stunning matte black on one side, and decorate with the most beautiful pink and red flowers on the other.
So there you go, a selection of gift ideas under $50 that your mum, auntie, bestie, or any beauty loving female for that matter, would love getting for Xmas.
