Christmas Gift Ideas with Kate La Vie

Christmas Gift Ideas with Kate La Vie

As soon as November hits, I’m in Christmas prep mode! It may get me a few funny looks, but I love being able to relax and actually feel festive (rather than rushed and panicky!) in the weeks leading up to the day.

 

I’ve been seriously organised this year (a little pat on the back for me) and I’m well known in my circle for being thoughtful when it comes to gifting, so I thought I’d share some inspiration, and a few tips, for your own Christmas shopping. I know, I know – I’m too good to you…

Christmas Gifts For Her

For Friends

For Friends

 

For the girls in my life, I stick to smaller, more personal gifts that I know they’ll truly love. Most of my friends adore skincare and look to me for recommendations (and rightly so, too!), so Christmas allows me to introduce them to the products they need in their lives. 
This year I’ll be sneaking pots of Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque in to my gifts, a much loved pick of mine thanks to it’s complexion-transforming properties! It’s exactly what you need after the Christmas festivities, especially when I’m on cocktail duty…

For Mum

For Mum

 

My mum adores hand cream so this year I’ve picked her up the much loved Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve, she’s going to love it. It’s rich without feeling heavy, and it’s sure to be a favourite of hers – she’s a low key kinda lady when it comes to her skincare routines. 


I find beauty products make perfect Christmas gifts, especially combined with a pretty accessory or a book – it allows you to really personalise your presents to suit the receiver!

Christmas Gifts For Him

For Brother

For Brother

 

If only the boys in my life were so easy to buy for! I tend to look out for Christmas gifts they need but would never ask for – I highly doubt my brother even knows beard oil exists, and that’s exactly why I’ll be gifting him a bottle of the Kiehl’s Nourishing Beard Grooming Oil. This has a delicious woody scent and works to soften and nourish facial hair. He can thank me later.

For Husband

For Husband

 

My husband is pretty streamlined in his grooming routines, but I know he would never, ever live without a hair product or two! I think he’ll be super happy to find the Kiehl’s Texturising Clay in his stocking this year, the ultimate hair product for that effortless, matte look he loves so much.

Stocking Fillers

I always buy a few Christmas stocking fillers to keep on hand should I need an extra gift or two, and for these I always look for travel sizes of my favourite everyday products. I recommend the Kiehl’s Crème De Corps to anyone who’ll listen. Wrap it up in a little bundle with a gig ticket or some fancy chocolate, it always goes down a treat!

I also recommend stocking up on all-round beauty products for Secret Santa presents too – the Kiehl’s Olive Oil Shampoo and Conditioner travel sizes are a generous gift for a work colleague you don’t know too well, especially when you put a little bit of thought into your wrapping technique too. I always go for brown paper with gold or red twine, with a sprig of rosemary popped in as a final touch. So charming!

Their top selling products have been given a limited edition Christmas makeover, with adorable new designs from Kate Moross.

I have a feeling I’ll be keeping that beautiful Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner for myself…

You can also make up your own gift sets while in store! Just grab one of the festive gift boxes and fill it with products to suit the lucky lady (or lad!) in your life.


I will be sticking to the old faithfuls for my best friend this year – Midnight Recovery Oil (who doesn’t love this miracle worker?!), Ultra Facial Cream (a product I refuse to live without), and one of the new Butterstick Lip Balms in the oh so adorable Kate Moross packaging. I know, I know – I’m an expert in gifting. She’s going to love this box of tailored-to-her goodies!

Whatever you wrap up for your loved ones this year, you can’t go wrong with a little Kiehl’s! 
Have a wonderful Christmas, may it be filled with many, many mince pies and at least three viewings of Elf!
