The best Secret Santa gifts make an impression on colleagues, friends, and family. From thoughtful presents to delightful surprises, I’ve got you covered with some really good ideas.
For Skincare Lovers
Skincare gifts are happily accepted by everyone. Even if you do not know skin type of the gift recipient, these safe gift options will only do good to their skin. I have a few recommendations here:
The Hugg Co. CBD Clay Face Mask is a Dead Sea Mud Combined with Coconut Oil, Shea Butter Clay a Fantastic Combo of Essential Oils, Infused with 50mg CBD. This antioxidant-rich clay face mask is fabulous for maintaining an inner glow. You may also check out the brand’s cuticle oil and foot soak.
Sanctuary Spa Face Mask Glow Trio comes with three cleansing masks that harness rejuvenating and detoxifying ingredients to effectively refresh and revive complexions, certified to cover all your skincare stresses and concerns. These masks are some of the bestselling products from the brand and the gift recipient would be delighted to receive these.
Enjoy hours of beauty sleep with the Slip Silk Sleep Mask, a pure silk eye mask that has been specially-commissioned and made to the brand’s exacting standards. Pure silk inside and out, the eye mask has a pure silk filler, silk internal liner, and silk-covered elastic band. The sleep mask will promote a luxurious, good night’s sleep. You can
Talking of sound sleep, pillow mists have been really popular in this category. Aurelia Skincare are famous for their prebiotic skincare range and the brand launched Perfect Sleep Pillow Mist with sleep-enhancing essential oils – Neroli, Lavender, Geranium and Chamomile, delicate flower waters and calming rose quartz blended to help guide you towards a restful night’s sleep. This would make such a thoughtful Secret Santa gift for anyone and everyone!
For Youthful Skin
Institut Esthederm Lift & Repair Absolute Smoothing Cream is a luxurious anti-ageing moisturizer for a luminous complexion. Featuring the patented Time Control System, Lift & Repair Absolute Smoothing Cream effectively slows down the skin’s ageing process. If I had to send a Secret Santa gift to anyone over 40, I might choose this one!
Institut Esthederm Osmo Clean Lightening Buffing Mask is a gentle exfoliator that eliminates the dead skin cells and regenerates imperfections on the skin surface which can lead to a dull complexion. The mask is great for prepping your skin for the holiday season and also received happily as a gift. After all, who doesn’t like radiant skin?!
If your friend loves smooth skin, Radical Skincare’s Detox Charcoal Enzyme Peel will make a lovely pressie this Christmas. The power-packed formula contains the clear skin hero ingredient of activated charcoal, plus 11 fruit enzymes which include papaya, pumpkin, pineapple, mango, lemon and antioxidants which deliver maximum exfoliation.
Sensitive skin peeps would really enjoy Clean Beauty Brand – Ren Skincare’s Rosa Centifolia™ Cleanse & Reveal Hot Cloth Cleanser which is a very hydrating, makeup-melting cleanser. This is a rich daily two-step cleanser that gently yet thoroughly purifies, decongests, exfoliates and removes all makeup.
For Makeup Enthusiasts
Milani Cosmetics Gilded Violet Palette has all the shades you need to create any party makeup look. Featuring nine super-intense eyeshadows and two glimmering highlighters, this palette is a beautiful gift to give this Christmas.
Too Faced Cosmetics releases their limited edition gingerbread palettes around this time of the year and this year the brand released Gingerbread Palette Extra Spicy Palette which has a variety of finishes from buttery matte to dazzling sparkles. This palette will warm up your makeup looks on these chilly days. Makeup Enthusiasts would love to receive this gift or you can treat yourself :).
Who doesn’t like dainty jewellery pieces?! Bini Chohan Jewellery is a British Brand from a talented designer from North England. The brand sells beautiful handcrafted gold and silver jewellery. Each piece is designed to ensure quality, longevity and joy. The pieces can be worn individually for a minimalist look or layered together for a fashionista look.
I have two recommendations from the brand – Gold Star Necklace which is simple yet elegant. This star floats freely on a 14k gold filled chain. Great worn on its own as a minimalist statement or layered with other gold necklaces for a superstar look. Another one is a pair of Jigsaw threader earrings that are super cute, unique and are Instagram-worthy! The gold ‘U’ shaped ear wire sits through the ear with the charm in front, while the threader and chain dangle beautifully behind the ear, or can be looped through other piercings to create a snake-coil effect. This is a fun yet versatile piece for your jewellery collection. The brand caters to custom jewellery requests too so If you have something in mind, do discuss with the designer Bini Chohan. I have a unique code for you in case you want to save some money. You may use code MSTANTRUM15 for 15% off across anything on binichohan.com .
By Invitation, Michael Buble Signature Scent is another affordable fragrance gift and makes a lovely present. Though affordable, don’t underestimate the projection and longevity of this one! This fragrance is both modern and timeless. It is a fragrant love letter to all women who love romance. The fragrance starts with light, sparkling top notes of red fruits and bergamot, then develops its heart notes of lily of the valley, elegant rose, wild jasmine, and spicy peony. It wraps you in a warm base of sandalwood musks, blended with an addictive vanilla praline. Gift Recipient would be delighted to receive this one!
For Perfect Hair
IGK hair sprays have been some of my faves for the past few years now. I think they are well-loved in the beauty community for all good reasons. I absolutely love Beach Club Texture Spray for texture in my hair with an added volume, and First Class Detox hair spray for in-between shampoos. This is an incredible dry shampoo and instantly removes any oil residue from my scalp. SpaceNK is selling IGK Hair First Class Duo set at a great price at the moment.
Until next time, Ashh xo
