Gift Guide

The winter holidays are all about celebrating those who mean the most to us with the help of a little gift-giving – but sometimes that’s easier said than done! Whatever the conundrum, we’ve got the tips to help you make the most out of this year’s season to give, one special someone at a time.

Giftguide1. THE PARTY GIRL COLLEAGUE

She's a hard-working young professional who’s as passionate about going out as she is about her job. Make her commute from the boardroom to the dance floor a little easier with all the tools she’ll need for perfect smoky eyes. Try personalizing a kit to include a kohl eye pencil, an eye shadow duo with dark and light hues for blending, and some unstoppable black mascara. Throw in a face massager for the morning after the night before!

 

2. THE MAN ABOUT TOWN

He knows just what he likes, and where to get it. But the modern man is often stuck in his morning routine. Why not shake things up a little with a new fragrance? Look for something wintery, such as a spicy, warm eau de toilette or a woody scent that captures the crisp evergreens of the season.

3. THE WALLFLOWER

Why not encourage that beautiful but shy friend to come out of her shell this holiday season? Nothing is more empowering than a classic, strong red lipstick to help her channel the red carpet.

 

4. YOUR FRIENDS' KIDS

Not so good with the young ones? Two words: bubble bath.

 

5. THE OLD SCHOOL IN-LAWS

The traditionalists in the family can be the hardest to choose for, so stick to the classics: an aftershave balm for him, and bath salts and luxurious foaming body wash for her - a certain way to keep any couple feeling spoiled.

6. YOURS TRULY

Don’t forget that other very important person this holiday season: you! Once you’ve shopped for loved ones, take a mini-break to pamper yourself with an at-home spa day. Detox with a healthy smoothie while you exfoliate and replenish with soothing masks for your face, body, hands and feet. You’ll be refreshed and ready to raise another glass in no time.
