Do you have a sister, friend or cousin who lives for the latest beauty trends? Are you keen to get your Christmas shopping up and running and beat the festive rush? If so, you may be starting to put some ideas together and draw up a list.
If you’ve got beauty fans in the family, here are some gorgeous gift ideas to get you thinking.
For many, there’s no better way of relaxing than taking a trip to the spa and enjoying a pamper session. If you have friends or relatives who could do with a break, why not book an afternoon or an overnight stay at the spa? If you’re not sure which treatments to go for, you could also buy vouchers. Treat yourself at the same time and make a day of it. Many spas offer the chance to combine experiences, such as a massage followed by lunch or afternoon tea, for example. After you’ve had your treatments, you can also use other facilities, such as pools, saunas and steam rooms. Popular treatments include head, neck and shoulder massage, facials and manicures. You could also try something a little more exotic like a mud wrap.

Makeup and skincare collections
At Christmas time, you can take advantage of some incredible offers on gift collections and product bundles. Often, major cosmetics and skincare retailers put together collections of their best-selling products. These represent better value, and they usually come in beautifully presented boxes or baskets. Take a trip to your local department store or order online from brands like Tropic Skincare. Look out for names your friends and family love, and take their skin tone and individual style into account. Some people love a natural look, while others prefer something a little bolder.
Is your best friend glued to YouTube tutorials? Are they always on the lookout for killer products and reading up on the latest looks? If you’re looking for a gift with a difference, why not swap your usual lipsticks or eye shadow palettes for some makeup lessons? This way, your best bud can learn the tricks of the trade and benefit from your present for years to come. Beauty makeovers may also be an option worth considering.
Many of us take inspiration from glossy magazines when it comes to choosing skincare products and cosmetics. If you know your friend, sister, or auntie loves to read up on makeup tricks and tips, why not treat them to an annual subscription? A new edition will come through the post each month, and usually, you get a free gift when you sign up.
Many of us spend time and money on our appearance. Beauty gifts are always bestsellers when it comes to Christmas time. If you’re shopping for a friend or family member who has their own version of an apothecary at home, you can’t go wrong with these ideas. Go for crowd-pleasing collections or think outside the box and opt for an experience. Happy shopping!
