A Christmas Gift Guide For Her
‘Tis the season to be...giving.
Christmas gifts for women are pretty easy to come by, but sometimes, a little extra help is needed when finding the perfect gift. That’s where our unique Christmas Gifts for Her Guide comes in handy!
This year, we’ve rounded up the latest and greatest in beauty to ensure that the leading lady in your life receives only the best prezzies come Christmas Day. Below, we’ve cherry-picked our top Christmas gifts for her that fall under the following categories: makeup, skin, fragrance and hair. Happy shopping!
Best makeup gifts:
Benefit always come through with the Christmas gift sets, and this year is no different. A staple name in the world of makeup, they round up their most iconic (and essential) products for you to play around with. Enjoy four of the full-size (yep, full-size!) favourites, including the They're Real Mascara, Shellie blush, Precisely My Brow brow pencil and Porefessional makeup setting spray.
There’s never a better time to adorn your eyelids with a bedazzling shimmer than the festive period, and Morphe are here to deliver a truly ethereal shine in the form of their exclusive Jaclyn Hill Palette.
Combining festive reds, burnt oranges and bright, bubblegum pinks with champagne golds, this 35-shade palette showcases a mix of finishes that include the likes of prismatic shimmers and creamy mattes for the ultimate look this Christmas, and beyond.
If there's one lipstick that'll make you want to pucker up under the mistletoe, it's the Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lipstick. This fan-favourite is undoubtedly on the beauty wishlists of many, and with it arriving in a multitude of gorgeous pink-hued shades, it makes the perfect gift for any makeup mogul.
What better way to apply all of your new makeup gifts than with a brand new set of brushes? Not only is this five-piece brush set from Sigma Beauty absolutely stunning to look at (hello rose-gold detailing), but it also buffs, polishes and blends your base with a flawless finesse.
Best skin care gifts:
This mini-fridge is ideal for the skincare savvy. With many serums, oils and creams needing special care to maintain their efficacy, this skincare fridge is the ultimate bedroom/bathroom accessory. Super stylish and boasting a 10 litre capacity, you can keep all of your favourite lotions and potions chilled.
Bring the spa to your home with this facial steamer from Stylpro.

As well as working as a steamer, the device can be used as a humidifier, towel warmer and to diffuse essential oils! It's the ultimate self-care treat.
You've probably seen these pretty crystal contraptions all over social media, and for good reason. Facial rollers and gua shas are the secret to perfectly sculpted skin as they relieve tension, boost circulation and enhance the look of facial contours. Not to mention, they aid the absorption of your favourite skincare products to leave you with a radiant, healthy complexion. This duo is made with rose quartz, which is renowned for diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Another skincare device that has caused a lot of hype is the FOREO LUNA Mini 3. This clever tool ensures that you're really getting down and dirty when it comes to cleansing by utilising ultra-smart sensors that measure your skin's moisture levels on each area of your face. It then creates a personalised facial cleanse just for you!
