From beauty to fragrances, I’ve got your Secret Santa Gifts recommendations for all budgets.
Babe Night by Missguided fragrance is a great fragrance gift for young, confident and empowered women. This fragrance opens with citrus notes of lemon, orange and green apple and develops with heady accords of orange blossom, jasmine, and spicy pink pepper. base notes of musky vanilla, cedar and patchouli make babe night the ultimate scent to take you effortlessly from day to evening. This is the perfect Secret Santa present for your babe friends!
Another gorgeous little Secret Santa gift can be Diego Dalla Palma ‘s Warm Tone Palette which is a quad of beautiful warm tones. The eyeshadows are buttery and blend like a dream. This quad comes with a mirror and has a magnetic soft closure. Great for travel and for gifting.
Let’s talk Skincare, Nazan Schnapp Sublime Hydrating Treatment Essence is a daily face toner with smoothing hyaluronic acid, provides refreshing hydration, antioxidant protection, and high moisture with natural humectants Gotu Kola, Rose de Mai, Peony, Hibiscus. Rose Quartz enhances the skin cells and encourages a natural renewal process. This essence is for all skin types, even the most sensitive skin.
Antipodes Beauty Icons Gift Set is an opulent gift set that reveals a range of nourishing, richly scented products, all primed and ready to help you achieve the dewy skin you deserve. This set comes with a full-size eye cream, a mini serum, and a mini day cream.
Brushworks HD Jade Roller enhances your skincare routine by rolling product into the skin for even application of moisturizers and serums. Jade is cool to the touch, soothing skin inflammation and reducing the appearance of pores, wrinkles, and puffiness. This is great as a gift or to add to your skincare routine.
BeWater Crystal Water Bottles are the fanciest water bottles I have seen so far. They have amazing benefits too. The gemstone/crystals insert brings healing energy to the water. I have chosen the Abundance Glass Bottle – Citrine. Citrine energizes every level of life. In crystal healing traditions, it is used to open the chakras and sharpen the intuition. The energy of this stone is alive and overflowing, full of joy, wonder, delight, and enthusiasm. It is believed to motivate, activate creativity and raise self-esteem, thus opening a world of abundance!
Citrine is all about balance – balancing hormones, settling digestion, improving circulation and supporting thyroid function. It is a great stone for detoxification of mind, body and spirit; and for a time of renewal and creation! If you like the idea of Crystal water bottle as a gift, definitely check out BeWater Bottles. I have kept mine for use and not gifting it to anyone, haha!
Who doesn’t like a perfectly tanned glowing body?! It is hard to achieve naturally in colder months but you can get your glowing tan with St. Moriz Get your Glow On Christmas Tanning Set this Christmas. I like that the set is super affordable but is an incredible Secret Santa Gift.
Another gorgeous pampering gift would be MOR Marshmallow Body Cream – a fast-absorbing, whipped formula that works to moisturize, soften and protect dry skin. This cream is enriched with Shea and Cocoa Butters that replenishes and conditions the body, whilst Rosehip and Avocado Oils leave skin smooth and deeply restored. The cream envelops skin with a sweet fragrance of Marshmallow, Jasmine Flower, Cotton Candy, and Vanilla Musk. Who doesn’t love nourished skin that brings joy to the senses?!
I discovered a beautiful natural skincare brand – Vanderohe this year and two products from their No. 1 range really stood out to me. Vanderohe’s No. 1 Purifying cleansing oil has lightweight consistency and its formula harnesses the hydrating properties of the organic, cold-pressed plant and essential oils to detoxify and nourish your complexion while protecting its natural moisture barrier. It’s also infused with Vitamin E, which helps reduce the appearance of scars. Another gorgeous product is the Exfoliating Powder which is gentle yet refining. This powder has a delicate blend of 100% skin-enhancing plant powders works to shift stubborn dirt and impurities to polish and brighten even the most sensitive skin.
We all love sweet treats and if this is something you’re considering then I recommend checking Raphia Flavours of Morocco which has lovely gift hampers of handmade Moroccan sweets – absolutely delicious and full of incredible flavors. I have tried a small selection of their traditional sweet treats as well as some modern chocolates with a Moroccan twist and liked them.
You might have already seen The Flatlay Co. Bag makeup/beauty bags everywhere on social media or at Oliver Bonas stores. I have two of these bags – Tropical and blush ones and they’re absolutely gorgeous! More importantly, these bags are very practical when you are on the run. Who has time to perfectly pack everything in makeup organizers when you can just dump everything in one place and lay it all flat on your hotel bed and see everything at once?! Plus these bags are washable so no more carrying dirty or stained makeup bags :).
Until next time, Ashh xo
