Although we can’t believe it’s this time already, welcome to day one of our annual 12 Days of Christmas Holidays Gift Guide. We’ve selected a range of beautiful products to give as presents to your nearest and dearest. A mix of celebrated classics and new kids on the beauty block, we’re sure you’ll find something in there for friends, family, colleagues and those annoying people you’re forced to buy for because your mum says you have to.

And if you escape the festive season without having to spend a cent on other people, we encourage buying all twelve for yourself because you’re worth it, damn it! Merry Christmas!
