If there’s ever an appropriate time to gift generously, Christmas would be it. Although there’s seemingly an endless list of gifts to buy, with careful budgeting and planning, everyone can be spoiled equally! You only need some great gift ideas.
I’ve rounded up some of my favourite luxury splurges for a quick guide of what’s available this season. Some in gorgeous holiday packaging like the Clé de Peau La Crème!
Chanel No 5 – This year the iconic No5 celebrates a 100 years! If you love the packaging of the limited edition Holiday No 5 bottle, you’ll also love that it’s recycled glass. Happy to see high end brands like Chanel adopt a more sustainable approach.
YSL Couture Clutch (Holiday 2021)– Has been my go-to palette this season. I’ve used it non stop. The packaging is just stunning with a foiled gold overlay that screams Christmas. For me it’s the shimmers in here, they are ultra fine and perfect one-and-done shades for a subtle sparkly lid. There’s also a good mix of deeper tones for adding dimension. Available at all YSL beauty counters.
111 Celestial Black Diamond Neck & Décolletage Serum – It’s my Christmas gift to myself this year & also a great gift idea for mom! Essential for nourishing the delicate skin of the neck & décolletage and encouraging cell regeneration. Available via Net-a-Porter.
Byredo Metal Boots in the Snow eyeshadow palette – … it’s the perfect dinner conversation starter! Ideal gift for that beauty junkie friend. Also ticking the box of luxury but not forgetting the sculptural packaging that looks so cool. Linking it here.
Byredo Mad Red Lipstick – I really can’t get enough of Byredo packaging. This red lipstick will be a sleek addition to any recipients makeup bag.
111 Precious Liquid Masking Edit – this luxurious kit comes packaged in a chic woven pouch. Inside you have three (75ml) face masks. For Healing, Hydration and Energizing. Available via 111 website .
Givenchy Prisme Libre Highlighter – Possibly the best holiday highlighter to launch this year. Surprisingly, very few luxury brands offered highlighters for Holiday 2021. This year Givenchy was my favourite. Beautiful packaging, flattering customisable colour in a makeup bag friendly size.
Clé de Peau Beauté La Crème – Hands down the most gorgeous holiday packaging this year. If you love novelty items that’s limited edition, this would be the BEST you could gift mom & yourself (if your budget allows).
Westman Atelier Lit Up Highlight Stick – A luxe gift in gorgeous packaging. Westman Atelier did a whole range of gift sets in gold packaging that’s ready for gifting. No wrapping required. Have you seen the brush collection? Available via Net-a-Porter here.
Jo Malone Wood, Sage & Sea salt – One of the most interesting Unisex perfumes i’ve tried. I love this years LE Holiday packaging. A great gift for a husband, brother, or a sister!
Angela Caglia Gold Cryo Facial Set – Is for the girlfriend you know could use a little pampering. Beauty gadgets can be a simple treat to indulge and relax after a long day and this set of ergonomically crafted rollers will depuff and firm skin. Keep it in the fridge for an even more invigorating treatment. Linking it here.
Chanel Sublimage Mask – Perfect for mature or dehydrated skin, or skin that’s lack lustre, Sublimage combines the very best of actives (Madagascan Vanilla Planifolia) known for it’s anti-ageing properties. Not only does it feel velvety and luxurious, the Sublimage range smells divine!
Hèrmes Les Mains Collection – Of all the exciting beauty releases this year, Hèrmes steals the show with their new nail colours and hand care collection. I was lucky enough to receive a selection of the gorgeous new launch and fell in love with the brands iconic shades. Rouge H, Orange Boite make the most perfect gifts for the H lover in your life. Their cuticle oil is one of the best luxury oils i’ve tried. As is the hand cream.
Chanel Body Oil – Is hands down one of the best gifts i’ve received in recent years. This 250ml bottle practically lasts forever & will be cherished everyday. Comes in three versions; Jasmine, Rose and Vanilla.
Dior Holiday 2021 Nailpolish – You know a brand repeats it’s products when it’s a winner. Each year Dior does this cute bauble shaped nail polish in three festive colours (I feel like every year the colours are the same too). These make the best luxe stocking stuffers for your girlfriends and also a special treat for anyone who loves nailpolish.
Oribe Haircare sets – Are a common feature in each years gift guide. Already packaged ready for gifting, it’s for that girlfriend who has everything, or a really wonderful boss? Available via Beautylish & Net-a-Porter.
