Whether you're a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants Christmas shopper, or have been umming and ahhing on a (fruitless) quest to find the perfect gift, with tomorrow the last day for guaranteed Christmas delivery*, the time to hesitate is through (sorry 'bout that). We've compiled an edit of sure-fire glee-givers - the last word(s) in luxury, that will send you straight to the top of the best friend/girlfriend/boyfriend pops.

For your favourite aesthete/die-hard cosmetic obsessive, {The Cult Beauty Box by Caroline Hirons} (pictured) looks chic, and stars no less than SIX essentials to protect and replenish all skin types. Frank, funny and phenomenally well informed, there's good reason Ms. Hirons' is so well respected... plus, the fact that you're scoring over £400 worth of skin care for almost half price (May Lindstrom's {Blue Cocoon} is worth a whopping £174), this box is a great gift in more ways than one...

Foreo's {ISSA} is the future of tooth brushing. Whizzing from Cult Beauty's shelves quicker than you can say 'sonic', this silicone miracle leaves teeth squeakily clean without ruffling gums, exacerbating sensitivity or compromising tooth enamel. And it looks pretty fancy. Perfect for a gizmo-phile (and so much cooler than those other brushes).

On the subject of brushes, Kevyn Aucoin's {The Essential Brush Set} has a hefty price tag, but the cost includes a lifetime of gratitude (and 'but I bought you the brush set' come backs - you can't argue with Aucoin). With perfectly balanced lucite handles, black gloss ferrules and the highest quality natural and synthetic fibres, these beauties are built to last - and can we just give special mention to {The Foundation Brush}? The make up brush of dreams *swoons*.

Like liquid Elysium, Kypris' otherworldly {Body Elixir} smells of heaven (#fact). It's the most gorgeous body treat we've ever come across - visually 'oooooh-inducing' and brimming with skin rehabilitative elixirs to leave limbs soft and supple with a dewy sheen.

And sensitive souls will be overjoyed to receive MV Organic Skincare's {Luxury Travel Essentials} - a stunning trio of face savers to clarify, calm and balance easily upset skin types. The {Gentle Cream Cleanser} is delectable (and beloved by Emma Watson, Alicia Keys and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, so you're in good company), while {Rose Hydrating Mist} helps to revive, hydrate and uplift in an instant. A beautifully indulgent way to spruce up any bathroom shelf or dressing table.
