Secret Santa gifts for women
Cleansing is one of the most crucial steps in any skincare routine and a soothing cleanser is a must-have. Surprise your loved one by getting her a gel face wash that eliminates dirt, dust, and impurities from the skin without making it feel overly dry. Make sure you choose a lightweight, silicone-free, paraben-free cleanser that is infused with active ingredients such as vitamin C to help achieve maximum benefits. If you wish to add a little extra love and care, you can also add a gentle yet effective micellar cleansing water to your ’Secret Santa gift for women’ wishlist. This will help her flaunt perfectly clean, radiant, healthy, and happy skin all the time.
2. Vitamin C serum
If your friend or colleague is struggling with hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, dryness, and sagging, get her an antioxidant-rich vitamin C serum. The vitamin C serum will help reduce dark spots and acne marks in just a few days and leave her complexion looking bright and spotless. This will surely let your friend know that you’re there to protect her from everything, including the harsh UV rays of the sun.
3. Moisturiser and SPF
We all know that daily moisturisation is the key to happy and healthy skin. So, level up your Secret Santa game by gifting the woman (or women) in your life a hydrating moisturiser. Another great Secret Santa gift idea to protect her skin from sun damage and external aggressors is to invest in a cream with broad-spectrum SPF.
4. Face mask
One of the best Secret Santa gift ideas is a face mask as it helps to trap moisture and hydrates the skin instantly, making it look healthy and radiant. A hydrating sheet mask provides love and care to the skin by allowing the active ingredients to penetrate deep into the layers in a short amount of time. And when it comes to sheet masks, there are countless options to choose from – be it enriched with vitamin C, charcoal or coconut-water eye masks, we’ve got everything you need this Christmas.
5. Hair colour
Got a colleague who walks into the office with new hair every few weeks? Here’s the perfect Secret Santa gift idea for you – pamper them with hair colour. Gift your mate sachets of brown, burgundy, red, black or all the above hair colour shades to achieve a hassle-free, salon-like experience at home. This will give her a long-lasting, natural-looking colour without burning a hole in your pocket. You can also add a gentle shampoo, nourishing conditioner, and heat protectant serum in the hair colour kit to help her maintain the health of her hair.
Now that you have your Secret Santa gifts for women in place, let’s help you with some secret Santa gifts for guys.
Secret Santa gifts for guys
Help your guy friends achieve healthy skin and keep skin woes at bay by gifting them a gentle facewash. If your friend has oily skin, go for the oil clear face wash and in case he’s looking for something to deal with pimples, opt for the anti-pimple facewash.
2. Serum and moisturiser
Christmas is the chance for you to help your colleague understand the importance of hydrated and glowing skin. Enter vitamin C serum gel. A serum gel will allow the skin to receive optimal hydration, moisture, and instant cooling sensation. The lightweight gel helps to reduce dark spots and add superior luminosity to the skin. Pair this with a brightening moisturiser and voila! You have a perfect secret Santa gift for guys that will help them prevent dark spots and uneven skin tone, protect from the sun, and keep their skin feeling healthy all the time.
3. Beard oil
Most men invest a lot of time and energy in keeping their beard on point. If you are looking for a thoughtful Secret Santa gift idea for one such ‘beard-o', we have the perfect suggestion for you. Gift them a customised beard grooming kit. Not sure how to do so? For starters, you can get him a vitamin E beard oil to increase hair strength, and shine, nourish hair strands and reduce inflammation.
4. Face mask
Pamper your friend with the oh-so-needed warmth and goodness of a face mask. You can opt for a detoxifying face mask that will intensely hydrate and purify the skin while also unclogging and tightening pores.
5. Shampoo colour
Have a buddy who doesn’t prefer the salt-and-pepper look and likes to keep his hair vibrant all year round? The shampoo colour can come to your rescue. This shampoo-like hair colour is super easy to use and gets the job done in the blink of an eye. Also, there are many shades for you to choose from natural black, black-brown and burgundy, depending on your friend’s likes and needs. Unsure of which shade will suit him the best? Here’s a quick fix for you – the Garnier Virtual Try-On tool. Just upload a picture of your guy friend and select the best-suited shade virtually, without any hassle.
