Skincare gifts are the best. Luxurious textures and a new routine are exciting to unwrap on Christmas Day, so we have carefully selected some of the best gifts you can bestow upon your loved ones
Which are the best Skincare Gifts?
No matter who you're buying for this year, or how fussy they are, lookfantastic has all the best snuggly skincare ideas to gift them.
For the Natural Beauty...
If you know someone who loves the thought of organic and natural products, you'll want to spend your time carefully choosing their perfect gift. They'll want something quite thoughtful and in line with their skincare values, so make sure you check out ingredients lists, and whether the product is cruelty-free.
Look out for hero ingredients such as Rose and Coconut; they're great for nourishing the skin in colder months.
Darphin Luxury Hydration Hydraskin Set (Worth £68)£45.00
Omorovicza Moor Mud Set (Worth £90)£48.00
Caudalie Secret of Make Up Artist Set5 Stars 2 Reviews£49.00
For the Luxury Lover...
For someone who loves luxury skincare that literally snuggles their skin, you're going to need to invest here. Think of their skin type quite clearly; what do they like to use? How many products? You'll find it easier to discover something they'll love, as chances are they've given quite a lot a go.
Opt for classic brands like Jurlique and ELEMIS; they consistently feature in publications like Vogue and ELLE, so you can't really go wrong.
Elemis Energising Skin Secrets Gift Set£75.00
Omorovicza Blue Diamond Set (Worth £570)£400.00
Jurlique Herbal Recovery Rejuvenating Trio Set (Worth £103.20)£54.75
For the Teen Enthusiast...
Teens love starting out their first proper skincare routine, but you don't always want to spend a fortune on something they're likely going to switch up in 6 months time. Plus, teen skin can be quite reactive and sensitised, so you don't need anything too expensive for their first foray into beauty.
Think of little stocking fillers so they can try the brand before you commit to paying for the full bottle...
PIXI Best of Bright Kit£20.00
Caudalie French Kiss Trio4.33 Stars 3 Reviews£36.00
Dermalogica Phyto Replenish Oil Ornament (Worth £18.00)£13.77
For the Mother-in-Law...
If you know your mother-in-law loves skincare, but you don't know her too well on a personal level, don't start by gifting her an anti-ageing set. It might be okay for your mum who you've known your entire life, but it's certainly not good to start off a relationship by reminding someone they have wrinkles.
Instead of opting for age-appropriate gifts, choose ones that feel pampering instead. Think of face masks, luxe lip care and even her very own skincare calendar...

For the Mother-to-be...
Mums-to-be need a little pampering, especially around Christmas time. Whether they are early into their pregnancy, or due any moment, they can feel uncomfortable, emotional and nauseous, so making sure to make them feel loved and nourished is an essential during the festive season.
Choose gifts that will nurture their skin, as well as help them get a good night's rest! Baby-suitable products are also welcomed as well to help them get through the first few months with ease.

No matter your budget, lookfantastic has some great gifts to choose from; so whether you're looking for something to gift their stocking, or unwrap with wide eyes, we have it all.
Skincare and bodycare work well here as it will let them spend time really pampering and nourishing themselves.
