A lot of things go into a great Christmas: a product-packed advent calendar, a fabulously festive beauty look, a playlist that includes the entirety of Michael Bublé’s Christmas album… we could go on and on.
But one thing that always adds to the magic of the season is knowing you’ve nailed the gifting game. And with this gift guide, we’ve really left you no other option.
Yep, we’ve got pressie ideas that cater for all the beauty needs of your nearest and dearest – wrap them up and pop them under the tree with a very clearly marked ‘from’ label – you’re going to want to take full credit for these gems. Happy shopping.
Christmas Gift Ideas For Your Dad
Give dad the gift of a comfortable, close and ultra smooth shave.
This smoky scent’s nutmeg and cinnamon heart feels festively appropriate for Christmas day, but the black pepper and tonka bean blend will last him well into 2020.
Dads often don’t take the time to curate their skincare routines the way we do; luckily Nivea has done it for him with this face wash, moisturiser, shaving gel and aerosol combo.
So fresh, so clean, so good for his skin – the natural earthy scent will set it apart from mum’s shower shelf collection too.
Think a hand care pack for your dad seems random? Take a peek at his hands and then get back to us.
A stubble-softening, gently-exfoliating boar bristle brush that will neaten his look when he’s extending time between shaves (because he fancies himself George Clooney).
Dad deserves a little luxury in his life too, and this travel-friendly body, face and hair care set will definitely do the trick.
Christmas Gift Ideas For Your Mum
If you know your mum would never go out and splash cash on something as lush as this dreamy citrus scent for herself, take matters into your own hands.
A hand essentials duo (in the most divine pomegranate scent you’ll ever smell) that mum will love displaying by her sink.
Instead of shelling out for another one-time-only facial voucher, treat her to an ionic energy toning device so she can gets the results of a luxe treatment everyday.
It’s a diffuser that smells like strawberries, rosewood, summer and happiness – need we say more?
Want to make sure mum feels like her most glamorous self this Chrissy? This brow gel and mascara combo is the perfect way to do it – all she has to do is swipe on. Easy.
Get her 2020 skin care routine sorted with this pack – there’s a day cream (with SPF30), a night cream (that works to sculpt skin overnight) and an anti-wrinkle sheet mask (because her face deserves some silly season TLC too). The extremely on-theme red case is just a very festive bonus.
Light up mum’s Christmas morning (literally) with this cute-as-can-be candle trio, featuring Under The Mistletoe (spiced apple & red berries), White Christmas (cedar leaf & fruity clove) and Night Before Christmas (sugar plums in scent form). Keen on picking up some more Chrissy candles? We’ve rounded up the very best of them.
Christmas Gift Ideas For Your Brother
Dear brother, take this YSL cologne as a very luxurious hint that the Lynx deo doesn’t cut it anymore.
It’s a gift for him (clear, clean skin) and one for you (the chance to lecture him when he admits he has zero idea what it is). He’ll thank you later, when his skin thanks him.
This skin-nourishing oil will keep your bro’s beard super soft and conditioned (even if it’s more Zach Galifianakis than Jake Gyllenhaal).
Pliable hold, enviable texture, and a potentially misleading ‘freshly washed’ smell – what more could his hair want?
We’re after a Christmas with all the trimmings – so a beard trimmer makes perfect sense.
This hip and handy pack will keep his skin hydrated and healthy – he’ll probably interpret it as you calling him handsome, but hey, he’s got a shot with this skin care on his side.
Sure, your brother is usually about a gin-related type oftonic at Chrissy, but he’ll think this pore-purifying, complexion-clearing exfoliating one is ace too.
Christmas Gift Ideas For Your Sister
With metallic brights for her NYE celebrations and matte neutrals to brighten the back-to-work-blues, your sister will be forever grateful for this 35-shade power palette. Searching for one for someone else (or hey, even yourself)? Check out these ridiculously majestic holiday palettes, released just in time for Christmas.
You’re obviously the true highlight of your sister’s life, but hey, this irridescent illuminating powder will do nicely as the highlight of her face.
Hand creams are just a good gift – she wouldn’t necessarily pick them up for herself and that’s half the fun. The other half comes in the form of the sweet pea & jasmine, guava & lychee sorbet and coconut & elderflower scents.
This nifty tool uses micro-foam technology to offer your sister a suite of options from brush cleaning and pore care to makeup removal and a relaxing massage. Win times infinity.
Allow us to introduce the stocking stuffer to end all stocking stuffers; this pink pepper and peony scent smells super expensive but here’s the good news: it isn’t.
Give your sister the gift of glow with this masque and moisture gel combo. The packaging? Perfection. The result? Radiance.
If ever there was a time of year that warranted a versatile hair tool it’s the party-packed Christmas holidays: she can have sleek straight strands on the 26th, soft waves on the 27th, bouncy curls on the 28th, and complete hair confidence every damn day.
Christmas Gift Ideas For Your Bestie
Whether your bestie is a big Ariana fan, dealing with a breakup or just needs to be reminded how terrific she is, this splash will serve as a cotton candy scented refresher.
Give her the tools she needs to regenerate her skin over the holidays with this antioxidant rich pomegranate seed oil body and hand set.
Shower sets are a Chrissy classic for a reason, okay? They’re just fun. This body-nourishing pack is perfect for anyone who loves a bath or shower (AKA everyone on planet earth). The pretty pink pouch will also be great for storing her makeup once the goodies are gone.
The last thing your bestie will be wanting to do is waste precious holiday hours slaving over her hair. Luckily this moisture infusing dryer dries hair in record time thanks to its intelligent temperature control and quick dry nozzle.
This collection of colours is like the mullet of palettes (in a good way): it’s part business and part party, so it’s perfect for post-Christmas shindigs, but she’ll still use it well into the work year.
With skin-softening cocoa butter, rejuvenating orange oil, conditioning creamed coconut and uplifting bergamot oil, this thing will do a whole lot more than just make her bath water blue and sparkly. But, on the other hand, it makes your bath water blue and sparkly (!!!).
Heard your bestie admitting that her New Years resolution resolves around finally binning the brushes she’s had on rotation since high school? Give her the nudge she needs with this ultra-luxe cruelty-free 15 brush kit and prepare to see her cut-crease sharpness go up a notch.
Which gifts will you be giving your friends and family this year?
