With Christmas just around the corner, it’s sometimes hard to know what to get the beauty fanatic in your life. Sometimes you just want to get that more unusual gift that’s going to carry an extra element of surprise come Christmas morning.
I’ve put together a list of 5 Luxury Christmas Beauty Gift Ideas that are a little different to the usual gift sets to give you a little inspiration on beauty gifting.
1. Beauty Box Subscription
Beauty Box Subscriptions are a brilliant option for the beauty obsessive in your life. Not only is it a great present to open on Christmas morning, but the recipient can also look forward to a beautiful new box each month too! It’s a great gift choice for those who love variety and experimenting with their beauty. My favourite beauty box subscriptions are the Lookfantastic Beauty Box and the Glossybox. Both provide five gorgeous beauty products each month ranging from anything from skincare and haircare to makeup and even the occasional food treat too!
2. Beauty Advent Calendar
Okay, so these aren’t technically gifts that are great to be opened on Christmas day. But if you’re feeling particularly generous or indulgent, they make excellent gifts to give for the Christmas countdown! Last year I had the Charlotte Tilbury World of Legendary Parties Advent Calendar and let me tell you, it was glorious! Extremely indulgent but so luxurious and a real treat. My top three favourites for this year are the Charlotte Tilbury Naughty & Nice Magic Box, the Lookfantastic Beauty in Wonderland Advent Calendar and the Molton Brown Cabinet of Scented Luxuries Advent Calendar (which contains gorgeous products scented with me my absolute favourite Molton Brown fragrance, Pink Pepperpod!)
3. A Beauty Gift Experience
Beauty gift experiences are gorgeous gifts to give as they have that lovely pamper element too. Personally, I love buying gift experiences for people as I find them to have a greater impact than a material gift. Giving Makeup Gift Vouchers is a fabulous idea as it allows the recipient to be pampered with a professional makeover for their special event. I provide gift vouchers myself for clients that start from £35 and can be used for makeovers, makeup lessons and even put towards bridal makeup artistry. A beautiful gift to give if you value experience more than material pressies!
4. Bespoke Fragrance Consultations
What’s more extravagant than designing your own fragrance to either wear or to scent your home? This is a really decadent gift but something that’s so luxurious and indulgent in all the best ways. Companies like Jo Malone will allow you to make custom colognes and even help to consult you on picking the perfect fragrance to scent your wedding day. If your daughter or best friend is getting married, I think that this could make an absolutely gorgeous albeit unusual gift choice.
5. Spa Weekend
A spa weekend away after Christmas is just the most gorgeous luxury gift. Having a break away for a couple of days combined with the prospect of luxurious beauty and wellbeing treatments along with a little rest might be just what the doctor ordered. Start 2018 fresh as a daisy and ready to hit the new year running. Beautiful getaways like the exclusive Soho Farmhouse are beauty blogger favourites and offer the perfect surroundings for cosy winter days and plenty of spa and grooming options from Cowshed for both men and women.
