The ultimate holiday gift guide for all beauty lovers (including yourself)

TextAlex Peters

Naughty or nice, this festive season everyone deserves some beauty and wellness treats

Herzliche Glückwünsche freunde, we made it through another tough year. Now it’s time to take a moment to enjoy the festivities and have a much needed break. December is a month to eat, drink, and be merry (in a safe, socially distanced way). It’s also a month for spreading love and joy.

As someone who expresses affection and good will through gift giving, there is nothing more satisfying to me than finding the absolute perfect present for someone. If you feel the same and are looking for some gift inspiration for the beauty junkies in your life, then we are here to help.

A lot of products have passed our (WFH) beauty desk this year, and we’ve tried them all. Every now and then we find one that really stands out and, in the spirit of giving, we’re sharing our list with you. And if you’re still unsure on what to buy someone, just use the Marc Jacobs method: think about what gifts you’d love to receive yourself. (Or try the Rihanna method and just turn innocuous everyday items assless). 

Here’s the Dazed Beauty guide to all our favourite products and the best gifts in 2021.
