So if you’re on the hunt for any last-minute gifts that are more of a singular focus compared to our pick of the best Christmas gift sets 2023, or need to send a wish list to anyone looking to buy you something that you know leaves all their present buying to Christmas Eve, then these are still all in stock and if you get them ordered in the next few days, will arrive in time for the big day.

For the makeup obsessive: Chanel Les Symboles De Chanel Les Perles, £68

Each powder comes in three shades; a pearly white, shimmering coral and golden glow. They are so beautiful that whoever you gift them to may not want to use it and just sit and stare at them instead and we totally understand that.

For the party animal: Guerlain Rouge G The Fantasy Bestiary Cases, £64 (including lipstick)

Guerlian’s Creative Director of Makeup, Violette thinks that putting on lipstick should be a moment.

Your lipstick - both the shade and the physical product - should be an accessory to your outfit. Hence these quite amazing lipstick cases that have very much been designed to show-off. Pick the lipstick shade you want and then choose the lipstick case to put it into, for Christmas there are two limited patterns, a black and silver glittery tiger striped version and a green and black velvet animal print.
