A bougie secret santa gift for the group with no budget

For some friendship groups and families, Secret Santa is not the time to play around. If that’s the lifestyle you lead and you’re looking for something upper echelon then we recommend the Balmain Paris Moisturizing Care Set. This is one of the best Secret Santa gift ideas for someone looking for something extra luxe. This gift pack contains the Balmain Paris Moisturising Shampoo, Conditioner and Repair Mask that all contain pure organic Argan oil to keep hair soft and shiny. It’s a gorgeous Christmas Secret Santa gift for her that will make their hair super smooth and manageable. Plus, the luxury gift box it comes in really communicates both elegance and style.

As much as we’d love to blow out our budgets when it comes to KK, rules are rules. So, if you have a budget, the key to the perfect Secret Santa gift is to find something that fits the brief, but still feels a little extra. The Glasshouse Fragrances Night Before Christmas Diffuser is a gift that just feels like Christmas. Inspired by plum pudding and festive fruits, this diffuser makes a great Secret Santa gift idea for coworkers you don’t know what to buy for because it’s simply Christmas encapsulated in a scent.

It’s not an easy task to come up with a best friend secret santa gift idea year after year. Here’s a prompt - the Adore Beauty Rose Quartz Facial Massage Set is a magical self care Christmas gift set we know they’ll just love. This 2 piece set comes with a Rose Quartz Face Roller and a Rose Quartz Gua Sha. Combined they help to boost circulation, improve the efficacy of skin care products and give the skin a gorgeous glow.

If you’re struggling with ideas for Secret Santa gifts for family members this year and just want to play it safe, our best bet has to be the Urban Apothecary Luxury Candle Trio. This is an excellent unisex Secret Santa gift idea that just about anyone will enjoy. The packaging is sleek, minimal and non-descript, lending itself to a range of decors. The scents included are Green Lavender, Velvet Peony and Coconut Grove. They’re earthy, fresh and a great edition to any environment, adding just the perfect amount of ambiance, without being too overpowering.

The insta-famous Sand&Sky Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask formula now comes in a full kit perfect for gifting. This iconic set comes with their mask, exfoliating treatment and body sand. It's the perfect 3 step set for an all round glow and the perfect secret santa for your friend who simply loves skin care.

If for some reason you get your BF for KK this year, here’s a nice gift that won’t give it away. The Aesop Coriander Seed Body Cleanser has a luxe, unisex scent of Corriander Seed and Peppercorn. It’s truly delectable, and something you’ll want him to have... particularly if you’re using his bathroom a lot. Plus, he’ll smell like it, which is great news. Also, if he’s inclined to wash his face with body wash, it’s probably less of a big deal. Genuinely, I see this gift as a win-win for everyone, and also something that I think almost anyone would love to receive.

Keep it A-Beauty when it comes to Kris Kringle

Give the gift of Australian owned beauty this year with the Ultraviolette Mini Screen Collection. As far as we’re concerned, this is one of the best Secret Santa gifts Australia has to offer. This mini sunscreen set is perfect for those who want to support A-Beauty, and also want to get their mates to trial a few different SPF products in the process. Sun protection is so important (you’ll know this if you listen to our podcast for 0.5 seconds), and these SPF products make the experience feel luxe instead of boring. They also make perfect little stocking fillers if you’re so inclined...

If you’re stumped for Secret Santa gift ideas for makeup lovers, we’ve got you sorted. This year we've brought out the Adore Beauty Large Cosmetic Bag in Blush to help you store all your Adore Beauty makeup hauls. This large makeup case is made from clear PVC and vegan leather, making it easy to see their makeup stash at a glance. Perfect for travel, this makeup bag is also very travel friendly and easy to clean.

The secret santa gift for the skin care obsessed

If there is one thing we all experience, it’s the passage of time. That’s why we recommend an anti-ageing gift set for literally everyone. Murad is a cosmeceutical brand that focuses on high performance treatment products. Their Murad Take Time Off: Renewing Set focuses on premature ageing and dry, dehydrated and mature skin types. It includes a full size Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Serum and mini Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream, Eye Cream and Multi-Acid Peel. The fast acting actives in these products promote a vibrant, radiant, and youthful complexion. This is a great gift for skin care lovers, or even an ideal staple collection for someone who doesn’t know where to start. Just remember that these products are very potent, so use as directed and always follow up with SPF.

The secret santa gift for the skin care obsessed

Husbands, partners, brother-in-laws and dad’s with dandruff everywhere rejoice. We have the perfect gift set for the oily haired, dry scalped guys in your life (which believe it or not is actually a common condition for a lot of men). The Christophe Robin Detox Duo comes with mini versions of the Detangling gelée with sea minerals and the cult favourite Cleansing purifying scrub with sea salt. It’s a great Secret Santa gift for dad that will give him the feeling of a refreshing full salon experience. Plus it will rebalance his scalp and banish those pesky flakes he’s been complaining about.

When it comes to Secret Santa, some friendship groups go all out. So, if you’re looking for a high-key gift that is extra splurge worthy, we strongly recommend treating your skin-care obsessed friend to The Beauty Fridge in Blush. This baby will hold 10L of their favourite low-temp beauty products at their optimal temperature so they won’t swelter in the warmer months. Think cool face rollers, masks and serums and not to mention soothing face mists. Keeping certain products cool helps preserve them for longer and improves their efficacy. Plus, this chic little beauty fridge really elevates the decor of any room, keeping things cute and cool!
