The Perfect Christmas Gift - ghd Arctic Gold Collection

It's officially November, which means Christmas is just around the corner. My friend Eliza sent me a snapchat yesterday with a proud display of all her Christmas shopping completely done, wrapped and ready to go. Is she making you feel bad yet? Well don't worry, today we're officially kicking off the festive posts with the perfect gift idea for your sister, girlfriend or hey, even yourself (it's never too early to start hinting *wink wink*).

Give the gift of great hair this season with the fabulous new limited edition arctic gold collection by ghd. There are eleven different gift sets to choose from to suit any hair style.

The ghd V gold classic styler 
Personally when I think ghd, I think hair straightener. They have the coolest stylers on the block and this limited edition arctic gold colour makes it an even more special gift. The styler heats up in seconds and makes straight hair a breeze. I love how quick I can be with this tool, I can grab big chunks of hair at random and the finished look is still sleek and elegant. It's like Christmas magic! As Tara said when she first saw my hair after I had used it, "It's so smooth and shiny I want to touch it". She then went on to describe it as feeling like cat fur. I guess I will take that as a compliment?

The Packaging
First of all can we take a moment to appreciate this beautiful packaging?? ghd really do think of everything, not only is it pretty but its practical. The roll bags for the styler and curling wand make for easy storage and the detachable, heat resistant mat means no more singed side tables (I think mum is the happiest about that one). I love how they have made the packaging part of the gift itself. Just whack a card on there and you're ready to go.

The ghd curve creative curl wand

The unique shape of this barrel creates some truly beautiful curls. I found this works well on my long locks and it actually holds the curl!! Shock. Horror. I can't remember the last time I managed to have second day curls but this bad boy has got me waking up with hair on point.

While Christmas should be all about the people you are spending time with, I think the act of gift giving is a beautiful tradition. The joy of seeing a loved one open your gift is one of my favourite feelings. Although if your partner or family or generous friend needs a little nudge in the right direction, don't be afraid to drop them a link to this blog post and don't forget to #hintghd this Christmas ;)
