Beauty, for her, for him, for anyone. Just make sure you don’t come across as giving a beauty product that symbolises that someone “needs it” or smells ;P . I always find that a beauty gift is quite an easy buy. Everyone washes themselves so body washes, shampoos and conditioners will never be a wasted gift. Then you have the more luxurious beauty gifts like bath salts, body oils and body creams. I personally love being gifted items like this as they aren’t necessary something that I would treat myself to on a tighter budgeting month for example. Even if I already buy myself body creams I may just stick to what I already know and love so I love being surprised with brands I haven’t tried before or that I wouldn’t necessarily splurge on. Here are my favourite picks this Christmas with links of where you can buy them the cheapest right now.
These brands are household names that you probably grew up with. They are all gift sets under £20 but look like a super special gift that someone would be really happy to receive.
St.Moriz – Get Your Glow On
(currently on sale at Pretty Little Thing)
For those friends that can’t bare to not fake tan, we all know someone…This is an ideal present. The gift set bundle includes the famous St.Moriz body tanning mousse and even comes with a fab tanning mitt. I tried a tanning mitt for the first time this Spring just gone and I can’t believe I was so late to the game! It is literally a life changer, no smelly orange lined hands and you can really buff in the colour into your legs and ankles. To top off the gift set you also get a bronzer and lipgloss.
Yardley – English Rose Bath and Body Collections
When I was younger I thought Yardley was just for grandparents, that was until I was gifted a bottle of this rose body wash back 3 years ago. It smells like a floral rosy pine and I adore it!! This gift set would be perfect for any girl in your life, young and old.
Sanctuary Bath Salts
Sanctuary Rosey Hand Duo
I feel like Sanctuary products are a staple for under any British Christmas Tree. I am pretty sure that someone in my family has received a Sanctuary product each year without fail. They are just so gift-able. They are affordable and an easy gift because every girl likes to smell nice and treat themselves once in a while. These are my two favourite picks from their latest Christmas collection. I am a big salt bath fan and these bath salts smell beautifully girly and I love the tub. The Rosey Hand Duo is another great gift because it is the all-in-one hand present that comes in a lovely reusable display case and can be gifted to any woman in your life whether you know them well or not. Also, under £10 so great for your office Secret Santa.
Are you like me and find boys ridiculously difficult to buy for then you should check out these mens gift sets. They’re simple and no boy would turn them down because they all have to wash and not to be too cruel but probably don’t often buy themselves nice beauty products. The American Crew gift set even comes with a lovely wash bag with no excess packaging, well done American Crew!!
Hawkins & Brimble – Vintage Rituals
This face kit for men smells fabulous and feels super refreshing. The products are no sample size either, they are chunky monkeys that are going to last a while. Added bonuses to this brand is that they don’t test on animals and are free from any nasties like parabens and colourants.
American Crew – Essential Grooming Kit
This is the go-to kit for any guy. It is filled to the brim with all the products they could possibly need. My husband and my brother have both been using American Crew for a few years now and rave highly about the brand. The wash bag is a great size to travel with and will last the gift recipient years and years (maybe even the rest of their lives!).
These beauty products are loved by women and men all over yet as they aren’t necessarily at the end of gondola in your average Boots or Superdrug you may not treat yourself to them regularly. These brands are all fantastic and have created fabulous Christmas gifting options not just including these ones featured.
I’m such a Ren fanatic as you can probably tell if you’re a reader of my blog or Instagram. This gift set is such a great introduction to the brand for friends that may not have tried it and even better if they travel. My absolute favourite Ren product ever is the Atlantic Kelp body wash and it’s featured in this gift set.
Murad – Vibrant Vibes
Murray has a cult following like no other. I posted a few stories about trying Murad for the first time last year and I was inundated with more messages than normal with a mix of “you’re so lucky” and “what? you’ve never tried Murad before!!!?”. Well I have now and I get the hype 😛
If you follow me on Instagram you will know I am an obsessed fan of Maria Nila products, well this is an absolute steal of a gift box. I have used this shampoo and conditioner before and when my parents stayed my mum very much got obsessed with it like me. I picked this particular Maria Nila to showcase over the others as I feel after a festive party season filled with blow dries we may all appreciate this structure hair repair kit…although I must admit all of the Maria Nila products I have used leave my hair feeling fabulous.
By Sarah – Festive Body & Hair Care Gift Box
This gift box is made from crushed grapes!! Yep, you read that right. How cool! I have never heard of anything like it. I love the whole ethos of the By Sarah range, everything is organic, and award winning to boot. This feels like a really gorgeous and special gift that anyone would love.
Which of the products above will you be putting on your Christmas list? I personally want it all 😉
