I’m back with another Christmas Gift Guide! This year, I have decided to section it into beauty, health, home and fashion instead of by price point, as I did last year. Let me know which format you prefer in the comments below.
But for now, if you’re in need of some Christmas gift ideas, then keep reading!
The Beauty Lover
For the friend that’s obsessed with the latest beauty launches or forever adding to their stash of makeup.
I find that a safe option in the beauty department is either a well-recommended lip product or SPF. I am a big fan of Ultra Violette and their skin screens (you can read my interview with one of the founders here). So I placed an order for their new Dream Screen – a lightweight foundation with SPF50 – about 20 minutes after it launched. It will come as no surprise that I absolutely love it – the perfect lightweight summer foundation with SPF! Highly recommend.
Another great present idea is a personalised makeup or toiletry bag – especially now that travel is on the cards again! There’s nothing more annoying than rummaging through your makeup bag trying to find something when you’re already 10 minutes late. I love using these clear cases from The Daily Edited for trips away. On one side I store my makeup and on the other, I store my makeup brushes – it makes getting ready in the morning that bit more efficient.
When it comes to beauty gifts, I tend to stay away from things that are quite personal, such as skincare or even fragrances, unless I know the person I’m buying for really well.
Whether they’re a traveller at heart, a gym-goer or they spend most of their summer at the beach, one of the below gifts is sure to have you covered.
This Ferm Living Carafe and glasses set makes for the perfect gift for someone you know well – it also comes as a single carafe and glass set, which would be a perfect addition to the home office.
A logo towel, cap (I wear this Anine Bing one all the time!) or drink bottle can be a great, safe option too – chances are the person you’re buying for would use all three.
The Home Enthusiast
These gifts are perhaps reserved for those you know well and have been to their house before.
A great Christmas gift is a coffee table book – especially one that’s more niche or a recent release to ensure the person doesn’t already have it.
Otherwise, small accents that fit in with the home interior aesthetic are great and show you’ve put thought into the gift – clearly, I’ve gone for the minimal/monochrome theme as per!
Buying fashion-oriented gifts can be a little more difficult if you don’t know the person well – or know someone close to them that can scope out their size for you!
One of my favourite discoveries in the past two years has been this linen set by Deiji Studios. This is the perfect set to throw on on a hot day – wear it around the house, to brunch, to the beach, wherever! The gorgeous French linen is so soft and with generous sizing of S/M or M/L you can get away with guessing!
