When it comes to gifts under $50 in Australian skin care, we love this Alpha-H Holiday Rose 2 Piece Set.

Nothing screams Christmas more than a pretty ornament to hang on the tree. The Circa Home Lychee & Rose Mini Soy Candle Bauble is one of the prettiest, and also carries one of the most delicious and juicy scents. The combination of Lychee and Rose with a sweet Strawberry base is a new take on a festive scent that livens up the room and helps to boost your mood. Its fruity, its floral - and it compliments the brightly coloured tin that’s sure to shake up your Christmas tree this year.

Two words. Christmas nails.

Okay, so we have another limited edition Christmas bauble on our list to Santa this year for a reason. That’s right, Christmas nails. The Essie Gel Couture Christmas Bauble Giftset comes with two full sized Essie Gel Couture Polishes in a bauble shaped limited edition pack. One shade is the Gel Couture Nail Polish in Rock the Runway - a striking cherry red, the other is their Gel Couture Top Coat. Together they create a hot red nail look perfect for Christmas, and really isn’t that what you want from a Christmas gift under $50 for her?

One of our favourite Aussie made brands is Mr Smith Australia. They make sulphate free, cruelty free, vegan formulas in elegant white packaging that looks great in almost every bathroom. The Mr. Smith Balancing Shampoo and Conditioner duo is on our list of top Christmas gifts for men under $50, because of these high quality formulas, which are ideal for men. Men tend to have oilier hair and scalps, so these lightweight, hydrating formulas work to help lift build up. This duo makes a great gift for him because they work to elevate his routine while also being super practical.

Unique gifts under 50 dollars can be hard to come by, but here’s one we think almost anyone will love. The Derek Lam Rain Day Parfum Stick is not only one of our top unisex gifts under $50, but perhaps one of our best christmas gifts under $50 full stop. In short, I dream about this scent. It’s floral, oriental, woody and green. Neither masculine nor feminie, it carries notes of Tunisian Neroli and Hatian Velvetier. It conjures up rain drenched sidewalks and the dewy, fresh air that follows after a tropical storm. Travel wise, this packaging is also extremely convenient and when I go on holiday I know it’s what I’ll be taking.

Keep hands and lips hydrated these holidays with this chic limited edition Grown Alchemist Lip + Hand Kit. This all-white set comes with their classic Grown Alchemist Lip Balm (Vanilla and Watermelon) and Hand Cream (Vanilla and Orange Rind). These are delectable formulas that soften and hydrate without feeling heavy or leaving a sticky residue. It’s a beautiful gift for anyone for anyone suffering from dry hands because of excess washing or chapped lips from mask wearing. Very 2020.

Lightweight hydration is becoming all the rage this season as things start to heat up. Help them get up to speed with the Murad You Dew You: Hydration Travel Duo. This travel sized set comes with mini versions of the Murad Age Reform AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser, and the Murad Age Reform Nutrient-Charged Water Gel. They’re ideal formulas for rough, textured skin, as they help to plump up the skin barrier, keeping things soft and supple. It’s an ideal gift pack for the skin care lover on-the-go.
