Luckily, here at Beauty Base we have a whole host of exciting festive gift options for the men and women in your life, and we’ve put together a handy Christmas gift guide of all of our top picks to make present shopping that little bit easier!
Ladies Christmas Gifts
Whether you’re keen to replenish her favourite perfume or treat her to the latest scent from one of her most coveted designers, the women’s perfume collection at Beauty Base will no doubt feature the perfect festive gift for her. The latest Michael Kors Perfume for women Michael Kors Sexy Ruby is a modern scent that sparkles with sensuality, and the wonderful raspberry accent works like a charm with striking Indian jasmine sambac for a sultry evening fragrance. An ideal scent for Michael Kors fans everywhere.
A bold perfume that will brighten up her day on Christmas morning is the POP perfume from fashion powerhouse Stella McCartney. As far as designer perfumes go, POP by Stella McCartney brings a whole new vibrancy with it’s unique floral scent with notes of green mandarin, violet and sandalwood. The Stella McCartney POP gift set comes with a 30ml bottle of the beautiful scent plus a rollerball eau de parfum in bright pink that is perfect for topping up the scent on the go! Another fabulous women’s fragrance gift set we just had to include in our top Christmas gifts for her includes the stunning Jimmy Choo Illicit Flower gift set that includes a 60ml version of the Illicit Flower scent and a scented body lotion. With a light, floral scent she can enjoy this luscious perfume every day.
Stocking Fillers For Her
Makeup and beauty bits and bobs are essential stocking fillers for women who enjoy all things beauty and are open to trying new makeup. At Beauty Base our extensive collection of makeup will no doubt be a whole new world to explore, so why not pick some of the best beauty products for her to try out for herself?
One of the most popular brands that we stock online and instore has to be cruelty free makeup brand Milani. Catering for all skin tones, Milani can be used to create flawless day makeup or bold evening looks with products such as the Milani Amore Matte Lip Cremes in colours ranging from the darkest plum to feminine light pink. A Milani makeup brush could also be a great stocking filler that she can add to her make up brush collection!
Makeup sets and kits are excellent Christmas gifts for women and we have plenty of choice from some of our bestselling makeup brands here at Beauty Base. We love the LA Girl Gel Eyeliner Kit that comes with a pot of the water resistant gel eyeliner formula and a fine eyeliner brush, so she can achieve the perfect cateye look for the festive season. For a complete makeup kit that she can take travelling with her, why not treat the lady in your life to the Technic Makeup Set Clutch that comes with two lip glosses, a blusher, and a choice of five eyeshadows with a double ended applicator brush all contained in a handy clutch.
Mens Christmas Gifts
Paco Rabanne has been long been an established presence on many men’s dressing tables, and the brand’s latest aftershave Paco Rabanne 1 Million Privé will no doubt live up to the high standards of it’s predecessor Paco Rabanne 1 Million. A woody fragrance full of oriental contrasts, the Paco Rabanne 1 Million Privé aftershave is luxurious as it is legendary. Ideal for men looking for an updated scent to add to their collection.
One of our men’s fragrance bestsellers comes in the form of Only The Brave Tattoo by Diesel, making it a great option for a festive gift for him this year. A distinctive aftershave choice, Diesel Only The Brave Tattoo is a masculine scent with notes of crisp apple, bourbon pepper and patchouli. A natural yet powerful evolution from the prominent Only The Brave original aftershave from Diesel, this aftershave will appeal to guys who enjoy a strong, lingering scent as their daily aftershave.
For the athletic male who enjoys the clean sports aesthetic, we recommend FCUK Friction, an equally athletic aftershave from French Connection. The FCUK Friction gift set available here at Beauty Base will please any guy who likes to layer on his scent! Complete with a full sized bottle of FCUK Friction aftershave, scented aftershave balm and shower gel, he can pack these essentials in his gym kit in time for that January fitness kick.
Stocking Fillers For Him
This is where you can really treat him to some essentials that he may not necessarily think to buy for himself! Stocking fillers needn’t be as costly as a main present either, and we have some fantastically priced additions to our men’s department that are just perfect for topping up those stockings.
We love the Skin Expert Set from Style & Grace that includes a hair and body wash, aftershave balm and body puff in one convenient gift set. This mens skincare gift set is an ideal introduction to aftershave balms, and it’s also great for guys who travel. The fragranced body and skin products from Style & Grace smell delicious with fruity orange blossom top notes and a warm base of vanilla. For those skincare-conscious guys who like to spend a little extra time on their daily routine, we would recommend the L’Oreal Men Expert Hydra Energetic Purifying Face Wash & Moisturising Gel Gift Set. Coming complete with two full sized products, the L’Oreal mens skincare gift set is specially designed for men with stubble and beards, but really does the trick wakening up the skin and leaving the face rejuvenated.
Speaking of beards, if the man in your life takes extra care of his, then why not treat him to a specialised conditioning product to keep his beard looking fabulous? The 2-in-1 beard conditioner from Woody’s Quality Grooming includes a conditioning and strengthening blend of deep moisturising ingredients to prevent flaking and dry skin under the beard. The special cooling addition of grapefruit scent gives a totally refreshing sensation that will take him in 2018 feeling great!
