If you’ve found yourself a few weeks out from Christmas and still unsure of what to gift, don’t stress! You’re not on your own, cause we’ve done all the hard work for you!
There are so many beautiful gift options in our fave beauty and make-up stores, and to make it even easier, we’ve broken them down into four categories, to really take the hassle out of your Christmas shopping!
The Make-up Buff:
If you’re buying for the person who has almost every known make-up item on the planet, never fear because this year there are some incredible limited edition products that they wouldn’t have their mitts on just yet!
If you’re looking for something brand spanking new, you can’t go past the stunning Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Surreal Light palette. With all of the top selling shades put together in a to-die-for marble compact, this one is certain to be a hit amongst highlight-addicts.
If your loved one is after luxe, the By Terry Impearlious Ombre Blackstar Gift Collection will be a perfect addition to her collection. The Collection features five pearlescent shades of the industry-lauded eye shadow sticks, with a beautifully creamy formula designed to stay put throughout the day.
The limited edition Zoeva Rose Golden Luxury Set of brushes feature a mixture of natural and synthetic hairs, making them perfect for both cream and powder formulas. Encased in a stunning rose gold clutch, this brush set is designed to be seen!
And if you’re wanting to keep with the Christmas theme, you could always opt for the Stila Star Light, Star Bright Highlighting Palette; a trio of luscious shimmery shades gives skin a dewy glow.
The Beauty Addict:
If beauty and skincare are their thing, you’re in luck, because beauty brands have gone above and beyond this year.
To keep it natural, check out Josie Maran Cosmetics Whipped Mud Mask Collection gift pack; with five mud masks, each a different fragrance, they’ll love keeping their complexion clear with these beautiful natural products.
Always a favourite, Philosophy have released their Purity and Renewed Hope Duo so you can stock up on these cult beauty classics.
Australian beauty brand Alpha-H has several sets perfect for Christmas gifting but we’ve got our eye on the Sun Set pack which includes five of their top-selling skincare items. Ideal for a ‘beach getaway’, the set includes products with high sun protection for the hands, face and lips, keeping skin happy and safe throughout the Summer months.
If they’re after the dream team, then Sunday Riley is the way to go. They’ve combined two of their bestselling products in one handy pack. The products are the perfect size if they’ve never tried the Good Genes serum or the Luna Oil (both have received beauty industry insider gold stars!).
The Hair Aficionado:
If you’re looking to go all out, spoil them with the new GHD Copper Luxe Platinum gift set. If that’s a little pricey, GHD also have a much more affordable ‘Smooth and Finish Xmas Bauble’ which should still hit the spot!
Bumble and Bumble have a few choices this year but a safe bet would be their ‘A Few of Our Favourite Things’ pack, which includes four of their much-loved products such as the Thickening Dryspun Finish spray, the Repair Blow Dry and the Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil.
If it’s all about the curls, Ouai’s Curl Kit is an absolute winner, with a shampoo, conditioner and soft mousse all formulated to help relax and define curly hair.
Another lovely gift would be the This Works ‘Sleepy Head’ set. Part treatment, part lullaby, these travel sized products from This Works really do help you fall into a deep slumber. Perfect for anyone you know who struggles to nod off, but also a real treat for anyone you’re buying for this Christmas. The set includes two pillow mists and a hair elixir.
The Guy Who’s Hard to Buy For:
If you’re struggling to find something for the men, don’t despair! There are lots of lovely gift packs to choose from this year if none of the above would tickle his fancy.
Clinique have a full range of skincare for men aptly named ‘Clinique For Men’. While products are sold individually, you can still put together your own pack (our suggestions include the Oil Control Face Wash, the Anti-Fatigue Eye Gel, the Aloe Shave Gel, Face Scrub and the Maximum Hydrator moisturising cream).
For the guy looking for luxe, you can’t go by the LQD 5 Piece Gift Set Coffret. Though it’s on the pricey side, the set includes tailored products such as the Liquid Skincare Calm, Liquid Skincare Hydrate and Liquid Skincare Shave.
If he’s into looking dapper, why not try The Bluebeards Revenge Deluxe Kit? The set includes a pre-shave oil, a shaving cream, a post-shave balm, a ‘doubloon’ brush and a roll-on anti-perspirant deodorant.
Finally, if it’s all about his ‘do, then the TIGI Bedhead ‘Man On’ gift pack could be the way to go. He’ll get a TIGI Bedhead for Men ‘Clean Up Daily Shampoo’, a ‘Clean Up Peppermint Conditioner’ and a ‘Matte Separation Workable Wax’ all within a very ‘manly’ Christmas box set.
