Christmas 2023: beauty gift ideas

Products marked with a * were sent to me in PR.

We all know somebody who lives for all things beauty, and those people are generally pretty easy to buy for - even if it's just a top up of their favourite foundation, you know they'll appreciate it. I've collected some fantastic beauty gift ideas, reviewed below for you...

The Beauty Crop Oui Cherie Primer & Setting Spray Duo

I have a full review of these which you can read here but essentially, these are a TikTok-viral duo featuring an amazing primer and a matching setting spray. My make up really does last SO much longer when I use the Oui Cherie Duo, and I'd highly recommend! Ordering through TikTok Shop often means you can get these much cheaper, so keep an eye out there but if you're not on TT have a look on Beauty Bay instead...

Lush Christmas range

Snow Fairy is one of my favourite scents ever so I always stock up at Christmas time and use it throughout the year. This year I was lucky enough to get my hands on the giant Fairy Christmas gift set* which includes eight Snow Fairy products all wrapped up in a stunning gift box for £70. This is the perfect prezzie for the Lush lover in your life, or you can buy it to split between people for stocking fillers and so on. Huge win, and super sustainable which I love!

Scilla Rose

Speaking of gift boxes, I also got my hands on a pamper hamper* from Scilla Rose - perfect for those who love crystals, skincare and good old r&r. This beautiful box came adorned with fairy lights, and had so much inside: a hair turban towel, crystal-infused candle, two bath bombs, some essential oil, soap roses, a bag of crystals and a Himalayan salt soapstone. Absolutely loads for £44, and so delightfully presented. Everything smells soooo good, and we have the candle out in our living room currently; so pretty.

Floragy Skincare

UK-based and vegan friendly, Floragy are a small natural skincare brand; I got my hands on their Facial Set* which comes with a clay mask and an oil. The great thing about this is you can build your own set, picking which mask and which oil you want - mix and match, so it's totally personalised to whoever you're buying for. I love that! It comes beautifully packaged in a cardboard tube with a spoon for scooping out the clay mask and a lovely face cloth too. At £32 I think this is a brilliant gift idea for the skincare lover in your life...

Kind Patches

These are *such* a good idea, and I think they would make great stocking fillers for teenagers or your other half - or they'd even work for Secret Santa! There are 13 different types of patches*, most of which come in packs of 30. You stick them on and they work for different things - there's anti mosquito patches, ones that boost your immune system, hangover recovery patches and more. They all have different vitamins and ingredients in them which are absorbed through your skin to help you be healthier and even more beautiful. Very cool idea and such a fun gift at £11 a pack, which is really good value for money if you ask me.

Made by Mitchell

This is another viral TikTok brand that makes for ideal gifting - mostly because you can usually get some sort of mystery set for a bargain price, which you could then split between different people as stocking fillers and so on. I recently got 6 products for £15, with a retail value of well over £70: it's a great way to save money on your Christmas shopping and the products are actually brilliant, too. The Made by Mitchell 'Blursh' liquid blushers are somewhat of a cult classic, so the make up lover in your life would be thrilled to receive one.

Dolma Vegan Fragrance

Gifting perfume is a classic at Christmas, but it can be expensive and you don't want to buy the wrong thing! This is where Dolma come in with their gorgeous Perfume Discovery Set* - you can pick it up in a bundle with a £25 voucher your loved one can use to buy the full size of their favourite. There's all 12 fragrances in the discovery set, and they are all beautiful in different ways. I'm yet to pick a favourite! And these minis are perfect for travel, so it's a win win. The discovery set and voucher bundle is less than £60 and I think it's a great idea; of course, all the perfumes are vegan and cruelty free!

There are some brilliant gift ideas here, perfect for the beauty lover in your life! Let me know if you pick up any of these, and keep an eye out for some more detailed reviews of some of the products mentioned here...
