A Holiday Gift for EVERY Budget

From big gifts to small, say "Happy Holidays" with our Editor Sophia Marinho de Lemos’ round-up of the best beauty buys this season.

Showing your appreciation for someone doesn’t necessarily equate to lavish gifts. After all - it’s the thought that counts. And these are three great gifts to show you care:

Lip balm: Besides being the perfect stocking filler, it’s also a gift that everyone needs. With winter comes chapped lips and dry hands, and a popular classic like Tender Care is sure to come in handy the whole season.

Shower Cream: Looking for a gift that offers a luxurious experience, without breaking the bank? A pampering shower cream provides the relaxation needed in hectic holiday times. One of my favourites is the Milk & Honey Moisturising Shower Cream.

Scented deodorant: Really want to give the gift of lovely scents, but you’re not ready for the commitment of a perfume? Then you might want to consider a great smelling deodorant! For men I recommend the North For Men Recharge Deo and for women My Destiny Body Spray.

Looking for beauty gifts that shows you put in the extra effort, without ruining you completely? Then go for one of these three:

Makeup: No beauty gift guide is complete without makeup, but buying it for someone else is hard. The more you know about the recipient, the bolder you can be in your choices since you’re more likely to know what they like. Personally, I love the new ranges from The ONE.

Hair care: A lot of new and exciting hair care products have been emerging the last few years. Oils and hair masks are just two examples of great gifts, and if you check my wish list you’re sure to see several Eleo products at the top.

Wellness: We all want our loved ones to stay happy and healthy. That’s why giving someone a wellness boost feels so great! I suggest you get our WellnessPack Man and WellnessPack Woman for a great mix of essential daily nutrients and antioxidants.

If you’re going all in, and have decided to spoil someone rotten, you can never go wrong with one of these three gifts:

Cleansing system: Gifting someone that has an equal love of tech and beauty? Then this is the gadget of their dreams! Our SkinPro Cleansing System is a 2-speed powered brush that provides a deep cleanse and massage at the same time. What’s not to love?

Perfume: A perfume is the most intimate gift available, as it’s worn every day. Choose an indulgent, luxurious fragrance like the Giordani Gold Essenza for a woman, and an iconic, sophisticated scent like the Giordani Gold Man Eau de Toilette for a man.

Skin care: The ultimate beauty gift is to provide someone with the tools for amazing skin. And a set that targets all problem areas will always provide the best results. So, I recommend you include a cleanser and/or toner, eye cream, serum, day cream and night cream in your gift. Our high-performance brand NovAge is great for women, and men can really benefit from using our Arctic Defence Technology driven brand North For Men.
