We promised to take the pain out of Christmas shopping, so if you don’t plan to consult lots of gift guides, you’ve come to the right place. Read on, and a few clicks later, you’ll be covered for the holiday season.
Any makeup maven worth their salt knows that to set trends, you need to have your base on lock. Clé de Peau Beauté's Le Sérum Indulgent Set will ensure that your trendsetting friend's visage is as soft, smooth and healthy as possible before applying any of the latest looks (that only she dares to try!). Whilst you're at it, why not consider gifting her Charlotte Tilbury's limited edition Hot Lips Luxury Wardrobe set, featuring ten nuanced lip looks that encapsulate the epitome of some fierce and influential women – just as she is to you.
The Girl Who Has Everything
The girl who’s got it all probably wouldn’t mind 24 more things in the form of a little daily surprise – after all, advent calendars are about tradition and novelty, not what’s contained behind each little doorway. Pick from versions at Jo Malone, Sisley, Giorgio Armani or La Mer, all of which contain tiny treasures such as mini fragrances, wee make-up bits and itsy-bitsy skincare saviours.
The One-Size-Fits-All Stocking Stuffer
It’s the brand that in-the-know skincare junkies know and love, but the boys in your life might not be aware of yet: Dr. Barbara Sturm. The Hollywood doctor’s got a Men’s Set that’s perfect to introduce to any man in your life, and includes favourites such as the Super Anti-Aging Serum, packaged neatly in a travel bag that he can throw in his suitcase before the next trip.
The Back-up Gift
You might already have a drawer filled with re-giftables, but if not, it’s good to have something shiny and new that you can pull out for that friend that you just completely forgot you had. While many beauty products expire, there’s no sell-by date on a Slip Sleep Mask, which is made of trademarked Slipsilk that’s specially commissioned by the company to be soft on the eyes, using long-fibre mulberry silk and non-toxic dyes. Pick a neutral hue – it’s good for boys or girls, too.
