Gifting to your loved ones something they cherish is a beautiful feeling. However, only when you understand the person, you get the gift ideas right. So this festive season, focus on creating a customised hamper, keeping the personality in mind. We love the concept of wellness products, skincare and haircare hampers. So we have painstakingly put together a list of products for both genders.
Gifting Ideas for Women
A woman is constantly pushing herself to excel at work and home. She is usually a perfectionist who wants to give her family the best. In the process, she forgets to take care of herself. Remind her that she is unique and she deserves a breather.
Create a hamper with a few sheet masks of your choice. We love the Health & Glow Honey and Papaya sheet mask for mature skin. The thought behind this hamper is rejuvenation. Help her feel relaxed while she sips a cup of coffee and hums a tune to herself. At that moment, it’s her, and she is not playing any role.
- Another hamper is to combine a Face Cleanser. Take your pick from Avene Cleanance Cleansing Gel, Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Cleanser, St.Botanica Vitamin C Face Wash, Plum Green Tea Pore Cleansing Face Wash and Lotus Organics Precious Brightening Face Wash.
- Add a shower gel. Pick a shower gel that is mild on the skin and keeps it moisturised. We love Avene Trixera Nutrition Nutri Fluid Face And Body Cleanser, Neutrogena Rain Bath Refreshing Shower And Bath Gel, Aveeno Soothing & Calming Body Wash, Biotique Bio Apricot Refreshing Body Wash and Sebamed Fresh Shower.
- Get them a hydrating body lotion, one without fragrance if they have sensitive skin. Our favourites are Cetaphil Restoraderm Skin Restoring moisturiser, Avene Trixera Nutrition Nutri Fluid Face And Body Lotion and Aveeno Positively Nourishing Soothing & Calming Body Lotion.
No gifting idea is complete without adding in Perfumes. First, of course, there are regular fragrances and deodorants, while on the other, there are luxury perfumes.
- Paco Rabanne Lady Million Eau De Perfume For Women, United Colors Of Benetton United Dreams Together Eau De Toilette For Women, United Colors Of Benetton Colors De Benetton Purple Eau De Toilette For Women, Hugo Boss Deep Red Eau De Perfume Spray for Women and Issey Miyake L’EAU D’ISSEY Eau De Toilette For Women are some of the best premium fragrances out there.
- Add a makeup palette and some lipsticks from premium brands like Loreal, Colorbar or Lakme Absolute Plump and Shine range or Maybelline Superstay Lip crayons.
- Combine face masks if the gift is very personal. This gift is meant for someone you love dearly. Such a personalised gift communicates that you want her to take a step back and relax. So our top picks are Neutrogena Hydro Boost 3D Sleeping Mask, Biotique Advanced Whiten BXL Cellular Anti-Spot Pack, Colorbar USA Water Bomb Thirst-Quenching Masque, Yves Rocher Sebo Pure Vegetal Pore Clearing Charcoal Mask, Plum E-Luminance So-Smooth Frost Mask.
- Add a lip balm. A daily use product, lip balm is one of every woman’s favourite items. It helps keep her lips nourished and supple. Go for quite a few for her to keep one in her purse, one in her gym bag and one that she can keep on her work desk. Select from Revlon Matte Lip Balm Sultry 225, SUGAR Seal The Show Lip Primer, Nivea Soft Rose Caring Lip Balm, LOTUS Lip Balm Fruity Fusion, Biotique Bio Fruit Whitening Lip Balm.
The idea is to create a hamper with essentials that she loves. So here, let your imagination flow. Surprise the woman you love, and she will value this gift forever.
Gifting Ideas for Men
Finding a present for a man does not have to be boring and done to death. We recommend changing your gifting routine to something a little more thrilling. Contrary to common assumptions, men’s grooming products are as diverse as women’s.
Again the idea is to combine personalised products. For the active man, make a hamper with healthy choices like protein shakes, anti-oxidant capsules, face wash. The face cleanser will not strip away the natural oil and will keep the dryness at bay. You can take a look at Nivea Men Dark Spot Reduction Face Wash or Bombay Shaving Company Charcoal Face Wash.
Look for perfumes that compliment his personality. You associate a man with his fragrance. So when you are gifting him a perfume, invest in one that smells great for an extended time. It will keep him smelling fresh all day. Likewise, deodorant is a great buy too.
Splurge on the best products. Our picks are Hugo Boss The Scent Eau De Toilette For Men, Carolina Herrera 212 VIP Black Eau De Perfume For Men, Mont Blanc Legend Night Eue De Perfume For Men. Keep in mind his sartorial choices. If he likes understated elegance, we suggest you go for Dunhill Desire Red Eau De Toilette For Men and Skinn By Titan Raw Eau De Parfum For Men.
You may create a quirky gift set for the man who is bold and not afraid to experiment with his looks. Make it fun. Add some fashion colour, hair gel and beard colours and beard oil. In this way, you are nudging him to grow a beard. Also, just because he is a man does not mean he does not like TLC. Please select a few luxurious and fragrant body lotions and moisturisers specially crafted for men.
