Welcome to the Christmas Gift Guides 2019! I love Christmas and gift giving and I am so excited to share my top gift picks for the holidays. In these guides you will find the same rules applied as my Instagram recommendations- I will only recommend products I actually love and have held in my own two hands. I would gift all of these recommendations to my own friends and family. All links are to Australian websites but most products are available internationally. Prices are in AUD. I hope you find these guides helpful and have a wonderful holiday season!
1. KORRES THE VETIVER COLLECTION FOR HIM – $80
This super affordable fragrance set contains the Korres Vetiver Root Green Tea Cedarwood EDT with a matching body wash. Korres body washes are so lush- the scent lingers all day and they lather beautifully without the use of sulphates. This is a rich and warm fragrance starring Vetiver Root, a leathery, smokey note with hints of earthiness. Shop here.
2. HUNTER LAB DAILY FACE FUEL – $54
Honestly, I would recommend anything from Hunter Lab as a gift for anyone but their daily face moisturiser is a stand out. It is incredibly hydrating without feeling heavy or greasy on the skin. It has a beautiful rum and vanilla scent and is rich in vitamins A, B and C and fatty acids. Plus, the chic packaging makes it appealing to even the newest skincare users. Shop here.
3. DERMALOGICA THERMAFOLIANT BODY SCRUB – $67
This brand new dual action body scrub is a must have for summer. It contains fine Indian Bamboo Stem to manually exfoliate whilst papaya enzyme and lactic acid dissolve dead skin. I find this formula is excellent for helping keep KP at bay and keeping skin looking bright and feeling smooth. Plus the packaging is shower friendly. Shop here.
4. ULTRA VIOLETTE QUEEN SCREEN SPF50+ LUMINISING FACE SERUM – $47
Yes another sunscreen recommendation. Not even slightly sorry. This formula is bloody divine and even the pickiest of men will love it. As the name suggests it’s a serum consistency that melts into the skin and leaves the skin looking glowy minus the shine. It’s SPF50+ with UVA and UVB protection. Think of Ultra Violette sunscreens as sun protection meets skincare as they are chockas with skin loving ingredients like kakadu plum and hyaluronic acid. Shop here.
5. KEVIN MURPHY FRESH MIX PACK – $80.90
The gift of good hair is always a good idea. This Kevin Murphy pack is incredible value containing full size Stimulate-Me Wash and Rinse and two mini styling products. I’ve said it a thousand times that Kevin Murphy does some of the best hair care in the biz and it makes for a super luxe present. Shop here.
6. THE DAILY EDITED BI FOLD WALLET – $119.95
Wallets are a classic gift idea but this monogrammed spin makes it so much more personal. I gifted this myself to my husband in black with the blind embossing. They’re a sturdy design that will last and hold up incredibly well. The Daily Edited in general have some amazing gift ideas and I own quite a few pieces myself. Shop here.
7. ELEVEN AUSTRALIA KALBARRI MEN’S TRAVEL PACK – $48.90
Another great gift pack for the well groomed gent. This trio contains the Eleven Extra Hold Styling Clay, Deep Clean Shampoo and a travel tech organiser. The Deep Clean shampoo is suitable for all hair types but is especially good at removing product build up and excess oil. Shop here.
