2020 has thrown just about everything at us (we repeat: everything), and to be able to
come together with our friends and family at the end of it is the greatest gift in and of
itself. But with birthdays missed, weddings postponed, and overseas trips cancelled, the
opportunity to indulge our nearest and dearest with thoughtful gifts is bigger and better than
ever. To make that task easy, we’ve curated a list of pointed gifts that scream ‘I care’.
There’s no denying coffee has been a particularly reliable elixir as the cinematic drama of
2020 has rolled on—so if you’re looking for a gift for the home office heroines in your
life, look to Frank
Body’s Dirty Latte Holiday Kit. It pairs their Original Coffee
Scrub with the new Perky Sculpting Body Hydrator, which comes packaged in a reusable
coffee cup, designed to keep you buzzed through the year ahead.
This year’s most collective skincare concern was one we had never heard of prior—maskne . Just in case stress-induced
iso-skin wasn’t enough, our protective masks were creating a breeding ground for
spots, bumps, and irritation. These hydrating, soothing and glow-inducing wonders
are part of the reason we made it through with clear, radiant skin, and whether for travel
(interstate, at least) or trying them for the first time, this set makes it
easy to look and feel glowy into 2021.
For Melbourne especially, the bottom half of our faces have been somewhat of a mystery since
July; so as we reveal them to the great outdoors à la Valentina in her Drag Race elimination, a pop of feel-good
colour is a warmly welcomed addition. Our pick? NARS’ limited-edition
VIP Audacious Lipstick, packaged in glimmering gold (making it an extra-special
gift) and starring with the brand’s award-winning formula for opaque, creamy, bleed-free
More than ever, these holidays we all deserve a rest—and not just the post family feast kind.
For the overworked, over-Netflixed and just plain over it, REN’s Scent to Sleep
duo will calm the mind with hops, lavender and frankincense, encouraging a deep sleep that
recharges, reinvigorates, and resets. With clean formulas and 100% recyclable
packaging, this gift feels as good to give as it does to get.
If you’ve ended your year with soft, smooth hands, unscathed by the drying side effects
of hand sanitiser, you’re one of the lucky ones. For those not as lucky, Tocca’s Crema
Veloce set makes the perfect gift. The beauty of this set is that you can gift it as
one—a cream for the bag, the bathroom, and the kitchen—or split them up, and treat three
friends to healed, softly scented hands courtesy of coconut oil, shea butter and aloe.
The home truly is where the heart has been this year, and with stay-cays a more realistic
option than vacays, achieving a cosy, wintery holiday feel down-under requires an
olfactory approach. Enter Diptyque’s limited-edition Ambre Plume
Candle. With notes of ginger and cinnamon followed by a citrussy zest, its scent
will create the illusion of mulled wine steaming from the stove. Warm, calming and
charming, it’s a gift that delivers on feel-good holiday spirit.
