Holiday Gift Guide 2015

You think its easy but when it comes down to it, you NEVER know what to gift someone! At least, I have that problem all the time. Since we’re in festive season and everyone is getting their Christmas shopping done, I created a guide of things to gift for when you’re clueless. Despite the fact that I personally don’t celebrate Christmas, there’s nothing wrong with helping a sister out 😉 Below you’ll find out why these items are perfect to gift during the festive season.


Typo Stationery 

Typo has the best quirky stationery and cute kitchenware to gift. I spend a lot of time in their stores because almost every week they receive new collections. Whether you’re on the hunt to gift a male or female, you can almost find anything! These flamingo kitchenware caught my eye in particular.

* Mini Light Box $50
* Flamingo Plate $13
* Flamingo Mug $17


Greige Eye Palette
Bobbi Brown // “Greige Eye Palette”

If there’s a brand that knows how to create festive eyeshadow palette’s, it’s certainly Bobbi Brown. The palette features 8 shades varying from shimmery, matte and frosty textures. The earthy toned shades are perfect for the Winter season and the palette is light weighted which is  great for travel.

*Price: 470 AED  |   $70


Michelle Phan’s Book

If you know someone that loves the blogging and make-up industry, you HAVE get them this book. It’s a book by Michelle Phan who started her youtube channel at a very young age and she’s turned it into a million dollar business. She has compiled all of her wisdom in this book, very interesting read…

* “Make-up: Your life guide to beauty, style and success” $17


phone covers
Skinny Dip London // Iphone Covers

These quirky phone covers are super cute to gift! My favourite is the ‘Krusty Shake’ cover.

* Reindeer Case $18 
* Krusty Shake $25
* Zap Case $25


Guerlain // “Rouge Merveilleux Rose” Lipstick

This lipstick is from Guerlain’s limited Christmas collection. Its definitely a luxurious product to gift.

*Price: $53


Jo Malone // Scented Candle & Cologne Intense Collection

Can you ever really go wrong with Jo Malone? The brand offers the best products to gift, from fragrances to luxurious candles… Any gift from Jo Malone is a lovely gift. This season, the brand has launched limited edition collections especially designed for Holiday gifting. These miniature sized colognes are from their Intense collection, if you’re not a fan of the intense collection – they offer the regular cologne collection too.. It features 5 different fragrances and they’re perfect for travelling.

* Price: 300 AED, $65 (candle) & 650 AED, $150 (miniature perfumes)


Avene // Cleanance Cleansing Gel

This face wash has been my favourite for a while now. It’s great to clean out the pores, especially for those with a combination to oily skin. It has a very thick texture and a little goes a long way, the size of a rice grain would be enough to create a foamy layer on your skin. It’s definitely one of those cleansing gels that you have to try. If someone would gift this to me, I would definitely be very happy.


Kiehl's Limited Edition Holiday Collection - Creme De Corps Body Butter AED 250 (2)
Kiehls // “Creme de Corps” Body Butter

In collaboration with artist Peter Max, Kiehl’s has launched collection dedicated to the Winter season. During Winter, the majority of us suffer from dry skin. This body butter is super thick, creamy and very hydrating that helps to nourish the skin. Its a luxuriously scented cream that can be used on different skin types. It also absorbs quickly, leaving the skin soft and smooth!

*Price: 250 AED
