It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. The salon’s getting busier by the day and it seems like most of my clients are already planning what they are getting their loved ones for Christmas. The stress of Christmas shopping is already getting to a few of them. So I thought I’d make it easy for you and put together a little gift guide of my top picks from this years’ Christmas gift sets.
This is the perfect gift for the man in your life who is just starting out with a skincare routine. It won’t break the bank, but has a great 3 step programme that’s easy to use and will get them hooked. The kit includes a Hydra Energetic Face Wash 150ml, Shave Revolution Shave Gel 150ml, Hydra Energetic Anti-Fatigue Moisturiser which are all perfect to give the skin a deep clean, wake up the skin and prevent the dreaded shaving rash. Winner. You also get a handy roll-on deodorant for them to pop in their gym bag.
Tangle Teezer Compact Male Groomer £12.99
Sick of your BF borrowing your Tangle Teezer? I have the solution… buy him his own. This Compact Male Groomer is perfect whether their hair’s short or long, and is also a great beard accessory if they’ve fully embraced Movember. The bonus for him is it’s a bit more masculine in black than your bright pink version…
This is a great all-rounder, as it can add energy and texture to any style. The set includes Tigi’s Urban Antidotes Re-energise Shampoo 250ml which will help eliminate product build up and give the scalp a refreshing zing. The star of this set though is my favourite Tigi product for men, Manipulator 57ml. It’s the most amazing product for creating texture and movement in men’s hair. They’ll love it.
This is the perfect gift for this season, with all the gorgeous reds included in this pack. It’s a tour through Maybelline’s top 3 products, including Colossal Go Extreme Mascara in Black, Superstay Nail varnish in Deep Red and Superstay 24H Lipstick in the shade Ultimate Red 560. Ideal for those who love a pop of colour. (It’s also a great cheeky way to get your favourite a little cheaper)
This gift set is the ultimate for any lady who wants to look their best…so basically every woman out there. You can’t go wrong. It includes the top 3 MoroccanOil products; Hydrating Styling Cream, Glimmer Shine Spray and the famous Moroccanoil Oil Treatment. This amazing stuff speeds up drying time, nourishes your hair, gives a sleek and styled look and smells to die for. Perfect.
The perfect 3 step program for any girl wanting to protect or prolong the life of her colour. As well as the Vitamino A-ox Shampoo and Conditioner duo, this kit includes the new product from L’Oreal, the 10 in 1 Spray. This is product does exactly what it says on the tin; it’s ten products in one, including heat protection, anti-frizz, smoothing and detangling to name a few. A great way to introduce a loved one to salon quality products for the first time.
For the Candle Lover
We stock this candle in salon and can never keep it on the shelves when Christmas comes around. It’s the best candle for the Christmas season as it’s got it all; the perfect colour, a Christmassy cosy scent and just instantly relaxes you. Trust me, this is one gift you might want to keep for yourself.
For that awkward one that you just don’t know what to buy
Everyone loves a pamper evening right? This gift box comes with a trio of products that will make a spa evening just perfect. Included is an Indoceane Mini Candle (see above), an Indoceane Silky Smooth Cream, which is fully of lots of delicious ingredients, as well as Thalgo’s Sweet and Savory Body Scrub. You’ll be earning some serious brownie points with this one.
A really sweet product duo that’s ideal as a stocking filler or a really generous secret santa gift. They’ll receive a Baby Lips Lip Balm and Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser 22ml, perfect for all ages and skin types.
You’d have to have been living under a stone not to have heard of this revolutionary lip colour. With an unbelievable staying power (one application can last up to 8 hours) they will be wowed by its colour and incredible shine. It will be fabulous for those New Year’s Eve Parties too.
Hopefully that’s given you a few ideas to kick start your Christmas shopping. The only thing I can’t help with is the wrapping…you’re on your own with that one.
