We’ve done luxe, and now it’s time for those beauty gifts that just hit the spot. Forget the last minute gift set you never really wanted; think the extra special brands you’ve always wanted to try, in sets specially designed for gifting.
Bath & Body:
Prepare to run to your nearest Rituals boutique after you hear about this, because when i say i’ve never smelt anything so good you better believe it. Usually when i talk about products i put them in no particular order, but i chose to put this first – the Ritual of Yalda range is unbelievably beautiful, and it’s taken every ounce of self control i have not to burn the candle before i took these photos. If you’re looking for an indulgent bath and body gift set for Christmas look no further, inspired by Persian wisdom, the Ritual of Yalda collection is all you need and under £50.
Every Christmas i get something from Liz Earle, it’s a fail safe option for my best friend who knows whatever set she buys me i’ll love regardless. This year if you’re buying one thing Liz Earle make it the limited edition Rose and Cedarwood cleanse and polish, you can’t go wrong with a classic but this is a classic with a festive twist.
Trial sized sets from Fresh & Peter Thomas Roth
Beauty junkies who can’t get enough of trying the next best brands need to check out trail size Christmas options from Fresh and Peter Thomas Roth. Renowned as some of the most popular skincare in Sephora, the delight on the face of a skincare lover will be plain to see when opening either of these little sets.
All price ranges covered by Caudalie:
When i think of good skincare i think of french pharmacy skincare, and there’s one brand that always stands out: Caudalie. This year they’ve nailed Christmas gifting with sets to cover all budgets; so wether you want to fill a stocking with Caudalie, or go the whole hog with a big spa gift set – they’ve got you covered.
For the serious skincare connoisseur, someone who likes to perfect their daily routine whilst incorporating a bit of luxury, there’s Elemis. Festive gift sets in equally as festive packaging, expertly curated to form the most perfect spa like combinations.
For the tan conscious
Know a fake tan addict who dreads ending up pasty in the cold months? In the first ever fake tan gift set i’ve seen, Isle Of Paradise have curated the perfect set for anyone looking to get into fake tan, all the way to the seasoned pro.
For the make up lover:
The Too Faced Christmas Dreams collection
If there’s one brand who do Christmas collections right, it’s Too Faced. This year it’s icy blue and covered in a scattering of bunnies, Christmas Dreams personified. The palette is neutral, useable but with a warm Christmas twist, you’ll also find a mini better than sex mascara and a palette matching gloss to accompany.
Finally, another cult favourite Laura Geller have one of the coolest gift ideas i’ve seen this year: a little collection of face, eye and cheek palettes perfect for holiday travel. This is quality product from a good brand but at a really affordable price; it’s the type of gift a smart buyer would pick up when they want to impress, but not splurge.
These are the best beauty gifts i’ll genuinely be gifting my friends and family this season, what would you pick up?
