Discover 9 of the best beauty gifts to give someone this Christmas.
Christmas is around the corner, and if you haven’t already, you have the huge tasking of Christmas shopping. Choosing the right gift for someone can be a struggle; finding that perfect gift can be difficult whether they like fashion, beauty or tech gadgets. For many people, beauty gifts are a great way to go as there is truly something for everyone.
There are so many different beauty products that would make a great Christmas gift. Beauty is such a broad category of products; you can get anything from skincare to make up to hair care, so you’ll be sure to find something that the person will love.
In this post, I have listed 9 different beauty items that are perfect for gifting someone this year. Everything in this list has been super popular this year and definitely makes great gifts for all ages, so if you’re looking for something for your mum, friend or sibling, then these are for you.
Perfume is a classic Christmas gift to get someone, but it works every time. Not only is it something that makes a nice, presentable gift, but perfumes are something that not many people would buy themselves, so it is always appreciated.
What’s great about gifting a perfume is that they are a huge range of them, there are perfumes available in so many different scents, and they have a huge price range.
Depending on what you want to spend and the type of fragrance, there is always a perfume to suit. However, there are so many popular perfumes; it can be difficult to choose one for someone, especially if they haven’t asked for a specific one.
Three popular perfumes to gift this year are Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum, Yves Saint Laurent Libre Eau de Parfum and Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Eau de Parfum; Which all come in various sizes.
2. Dior Lip Oil (£29)
The Dior lip oil is one of their most popular items, and it makes a perfect gift to give. The lip oil comes in 7 different shades suitable for many different skin types and complexions. The formula is a non-greasy and non-sticky texture that provides the desired gloss whilst moisturising your lips.
It is infused with cherry oil to nourish, protect and soften the lips. The Dior lip oil is the perfect product to revitalise your lips and provide the ultimate lip care, especially during the winter months.
This makes such a lovely gift not only for the amount of use you can get out of it but also because the product’s packaging and presentation are very classy and luxurious. This product is suitable for different skin types and complexions, and it is an excellent gift for all age ranges, so this could be a gift for multiple people in the family.
3. Fenty Skin Start’r Set (£32)
Fenty skin launched earlier this year and instantly became one of the most talked-about skincare brands.
Their products are suitable for all skin types and complexions so that everyone can use them, no matter their age or gender. Again this would be a great present for many different people, whether it’s your mum, a friend or sibling.
The Fenty skin starter set contains a cleanser, toner, and moisturiser with an SPF 30. This is a great starter kit that will help kick start your skincare regime. All of the products are oil-free and vegan, so they are definitely going to be beneficial to the skin.
What makes these products different to other brands is that they contain Barbados cherry, which every cherry used has more vitamin C than an orange, so these products are going to protect the skin cells from damage caused by UV exposure.
4. The Ordinary The Balance Set (£29)
The Ordinary has been popular skincare and makeup brand for a long time now, and it is a personal favourite of mine.
The Ordinary is a science-based skincare brand that creates products that have proven to work several times. They have a wide range of products suited for different parts of the skincare routine and tackle different skin issues.
The Ordinary has created a gift set, ‘the balance set’, containing a four-step skincare routine. It contains the Squalane Cleanser, Salicylic Acid 2% Masque, Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and the Natural Moisturising Factors + HA. These products are top sellers from The Ordinary that all work together to reduce shine, reduce the appearance of pores and enhance radiance.
This is a great gift for this Christmas, especially if you are shopping for someone who is really into skincare. It is a reputable brand that has proven to work for different skin types, skin conditions and complexions, and the full-size products will help kick-start a great skincare routine.
5. Olaplex Healthy Hair Essential Kit (£60)
Olaplex has released a limited-edition kit for this Christmas, and it is definitely one of the top beauty gifts wanted this year.
Olapex is a worldwide hair care brand with a patented system to repair highly damaged hair. Their products repair, strengthen, and hydrate all hair types; they can also be used on all hair colours.
The healthy hair essential kit contains a full size no. 3 hair perfector, a travel-size no. 4 & no. 5 bond maintained shampoo and conditioner, and lastly, it contains a full-size no. 7 bonding oil.
All of these products will help create a haircare routine that repairs damaged hair from being dry and brittle into soft and more resilient hair; these products will leave the hair looking shiny and better than ever. And if that wasn’t enough to sell you, professionals use Olaplex, so this kit will give you professional salon hair every day.
6. Ouai Get Your Ouai Hair Care Kit (£25)
Ouai is a popular brand that does haircare products, skincare products and fragrances; however, they started as and are known best for their hair products.
Ouai products deeply cleanse and improve hair quality; the brand aims to create products that are accessible and luxurious all in one by using nourishing ingredients, fine fragrances and packaging that look aesthetically pleasing.
The Ouai ‘Get Your OUAI Hair Care Kit’ contains a mini detox shampoo, super dry shampoo, and a full-size leave-in conditioner. This would make a great present as it’s simple products that everyone can use.
It is slightly cheaper than the Olaplex gift set, so if you’re looking for something cheaper but still high-quality, this is a great option for you.
7. StylPro’s Beauty Fridge (£50)
Beauty fridges went viral on TikTok earlier this year and have since been super popular. They are designed to chill skincare and beauty products, such as eye creams and face masks, to provide a cooling sensation and a spa-like experience.
Not only does it improve the experience, but it also extends the life of the products and keep them in the best quality for longer.
The StylPro’s 4L beauty fridge is the perfect beauty gift to give someone this Christmas, as everyone can use it, and if you have someone that loves skincare, they will really enjoy this. It’s which and rose gold accents is a minimal and aesthetically pleasing design, and the built-in noise reduction is definitely a plus.
Not only does it work well as a fridge with cooling its content up to 20°c below room temperature, but it also has heating settings, so if you need to heat certain products (such as hand warmers), then you can. It also has a removable divider shelf and a pock in the door, so you can keep all your products organised and tidy.
8. The White Company Candle (£28-£38)
Candles are always a go-to gift, and Christmas is no different. There are so many scents, styles, and the presentation always makes it even better to give as a gift.
You can buy candles from so many different places, and they are all great to give to your family and friends, but one company that I think is great for Christmas gifts is The White Company.
The White Company is a luxury homeware brand with affordable prices for products of such good quality and appealing styles. They pay attention to all the small details in all of their products, and their thought out products make the simple things in life that little bit better.
The White Company candles are an ideal Christmas gift as the timeless style, and quality of the products makes it a lovely gift to receive. They have a variety of scents, but they have a range of winter candles that includes scents such as fir-tree, pomegranate and winter, which are all amazing scents to have during these cold months.
9. The Neom Essential Oil Diffuser: Wellbeing Pod (£135)
Diffusers are a home fragrance device that helps distribute fragrance around your home, and it’s something that would make a lovely gift this year.
Not only do they deliver the perfect amount of fragrance around your home, but diffusers can also have so many benefits to an individual. They can help prepare you for sleep, relax you and help you feel calmer, and they can help refresh you when feeling ill.
The Neom Essential Oil Diffuser: Wellbeing Pod is a great diffuser to get as it comes in a set with four essential oils, it has a low energy LED light and timer, but most importantly, it’s easy to use.
The Neom diffuser is straightforward to use, which is always good as you don’t want to spend too much time setting it up. Aesthetically, it is a minimal diffuser, and the white and wood design would go perfectly in so many different rooms in the house, so it’d be great to gift someone.
