If you’re anything like us here at The Perfume Shop, finding the perfect present for whoever you’ve picked in the secret Santa draw is often one of the trickiest. The possibility of not knowing all that much about your recipient, as well as a lack of any obvious but helpful hints, can make it a major challenge (to say the least).
So, to save you spending endless hours scouring the internet or hitting the shops in a last-minute dash, we’ve done all the hard work for you. Ahead, discover the ideal secret Santa gifts for everyone from your co-worker to your friends and family that are sure to impress this Christmas…
For the beauty-obsessed friend
So they’re into beauty? Don’t worry, we’ve got you! You’ll find plenty of makeup and skincare gifts that they’ll love to receive right here. If in doubt, go for a nail polish to really bring on the cheer. And what better way to put them in a seriously festive mood than with this long-lasting version from Mavala in a classic red hue? Just add one (or more) to your basket for yourself too. After all, ’tis the season!
For the eco-friendly roommate
From cruelty-free ingredients to sustainably sourced packaging, there’s lots of Christmas gifts at The Perfume Shop that will go down a treat with any environmentally conscious giftee (without spoiling the planet.) Struggling to narrow down the choices? Body butter is always a safe bet—particularly when it’s from Bubble Up. Not only does it soften the skin and leave it deliciously scented, but it’s also vegan and comes in fully recyclable packaging. Heads up: you’ll be highly tempted to keep this for yourself.
For the colleague who has everything
Stuck for inspiration on what to buy your co-worker? Look no further. Thoughtful gifts can go a long way and what better way to finish off the working year than with a present that gives them the chance to enjoy a little “me” time. Whether it’s a Noughty body wash for the shower lovers, a Bubble Up bath bomb for those who prefer a soak or a refreshing body mist from Rabot 1745, you can help them practice some self-care over the holidays.
For the MUA in the making sister
If you really want to get in your sister’s good books on December 25th, you really can’t beat makeup as a Christmas gift. Whether it’s a cute Love Hearts cosmetic brush set from Swizzels to help her practise her contouring skills or a colourful beauty egg blender by Unicorn Cosmetics, these are something every self-taught makeup pro will truly appreciate finding under the tree. Let’s just hope she isn’t reading this, we wouldn’t want to spoil the surprise!
For the man who’s impossible to buy for
Still on that never-ending hunt for a Christmas gift that he won’t secretly return? Whether you’re buying for your brother, partner, dad or friend, men are notorious for being difficult to shop for. But even the most hard-to-please will enjoy upgrading their everyday grooming routine with some luxurious essentials. Think energising body washes from Hawkins & Brimble, some Woody’s beard-conditioning styling wax and a rejuvenating face mask by Barber Pro. Trust us, these are the gifts they’ll really want (but won’t think to ask for).
