12 Of The Best Beauty Gift Sets To Put On Your Radar
'Tis (almost) almost the season, and there are SO many stunning beauty gifts to choose from.
Although it’s Halloween (basically) I’m here to talk about Christmas. Because after the year we’ve had, we may as well go and put up the Christmas tree immediately after Halloween, because, well why not? This year there’ll be a big focus on smaller, local businesses, as it’s so important to shop local right now.
Right now though, we’re gonna go through some amazing gifts for all the beauty fanatics out there. There are some sets that you’ll be able to purchase in your local salons to support them too, but keep an eye out for our gift guide from local, Irish businesses to come. For now, sit back and get adding these gorgeous beauty bits to your gifting list (or your very own wishlist, no judgement here).
Christmas at The Body Shop
The Body Shop always have gorgeous little sets for Christmas, ideal for someone who just loves body care, for little stocking fillers, or for someone that you’re not 100% sure on what to get them. The collection this year has pretty much everything. From bespoke gifting where you can choose a festive bag and fill with gorgeous treats, special edition scents like Festive Berry (enriched with cranberry seed oil from North America), stocking fillers such as the Shake & Swish Ginger Hair Care Duo – and of course, much more.
Plus, the packaging material for The Body Shop products has been reduced in excess of 80 tonnes compared to the 2019 collection. To put that in perspective, that’s 417k body butters! It’s a win-win. All of their gifts are available now, where you can shop on their website and click and collect in your nearest store.
Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb Luxury Gift Set
An oldie, but a goodie. Viktor&Rolf’s Flowerbomb is an iconic perfume, you’d be hard done by to find someone who isn’t a fan of this. The luxury gift set this year includes Flowerbomb 50ml Eau de Parfum, Shower Gel, and Body Lotion. All packaged beautifully in a sparkling star-shaped box, a gorge gift this year. They also have the duo gift set, which has the classic 50ml perfume, along with a travel-size 10ml – perfect for your handbag, or for when we actually can look forward to our travels again. Check it out right here.
Another classic gift each year is the personalised LanaiBLO. The LanaiBLO hairdryer is all about giving you the fasted experience of blow-drying your hair at home, along with anti-static technology so that the cuticles of your hair are left smooth and shiny – giving you a gorgeous blow-dry each time from the comfort of your own home. You can get a personalised message on your LanaiBLO, perfect for a Christmas gift, and choose from a range of shades including Rose Gold, Pink, White, Chrome, and more. Find out more right here.
