It goes without saying that a gift for someone special speaks a thousand words from the giver to the receiver, so putting some thought into what’s under the wrapper or Christmas tree is essential for a joyous gifting experience.
Here’s our list on who should be getting what, based on their personalities.
The old-school charmer
He’s a conventional, old-school romantic who treats you like a queen. And while he always accords you with the best, sometimes, he skips things for himself, which is why the Malin+Goetz Make It a Double is the perfect addition for his bathroom. The thorough hand + body wash has gentle surfactants to purify skin and the long-lasting body lotion keeps skin healthy.
Meanwhile, Diptyque L'Eau Papier Holiday Edition EDT presents a fine treat for a fine gentleman. Its Holiday interpretation offers a transparent view of the nuances created by ink on paper, like its evolution of musk on skin, on a backdrop of blonde wood tones. Poetic and sophisticated, like the man it is gifted to.
The worldly gentleman
An avid traveller who appreciates the finer things in life, he indulges in luxury and is game for anything, including a touch of excellence in the ordinary, like when he is brushing his teeth.
The Marvis Mints Gift Set will elevate his daily routine up a few notches with three toothpastes with a taste of mint, packed in a stylish box.
For some fragrant indulgence, Kilian Holiday Icon Set in Sacred Wood does the trick. The Sacred Wood 50ml is paired with a 7.5ml black lacquered Talisman Travel Spray, filled with the same perfume made with Sandalwood from Mysore, the most coveted variety of all, as is the man himself.
The one who is rough around the edges
Some gentlemen are not easily deciphered, but everyone has his soft spot, even those who look tough with I-got-this written all over his persona.
This Malin+Goetz Eucalyptus Deodorant has natural deodorant synthesised with eucalyptus extract and odour-neutralising citronellyl to keep him fresh throughout the day. It’s a deodorant with a difference, which explains why it’s a global best-seller for 10 years and counting.
You also can’t go wrong with the Jack Black Refresh & Restore Set, with Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser, Turbo Wash® Energizing Cleanser for Hair & Body and Turbo Body Lotion™ Energizing Gel Moisturizer for fuss-free and seamless face and body care.
The independent lady
She’s fiercely independent, knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to go get it…and that’s her charm. A high-achiever and all-rounder, she loves herself and knows what she deserves, which is why this Augustinus Bader The Winter Radiance System With TFC8® is made for her.
Featuring the award-winning Rich Cream, cult-favourite gentle Cream Cleansing Gel, and revitalising hydrogel Eye Patches, these are the best in class for that exceptional someone.
You can also treat her with Oribe Gold Lust Collection, featuring the Gold Lust Shampoo that rejuvenates hair to its healthiest prime and Gold Lust Conditioner that reverses the damage of time and style. Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil seals in shine and softness for top-tier crowning glory.
The sweet romantic
Gentle and sweet, the romantic lady prefers refined presents that embody her soft personality and the Caudalie Moisturizing Hand Cream Trio Set of luxury travel-sized hand creams will leave her hands beautifully soft and nourished on-the-go. In Rose de Vigne, Thé des Vignes and its original scent, these creams will be her favourites in no time.
For a sensorial treat, Goutal Tenue de Soiree EDP and Body Cream Set highlights the sophistication of a chypre trail with floral nuances that is sure to delight.
The sexy siren
The party-loving, gorgeous seductress loves nothing less than statement-making scents, personified perfectly by Kilian’s Good Girl Gone Bad. Half-innocent, half-voluptuous, this combination of apricot-tinged osmanthus absolute, orange blossom and rose of May absolute open the fragrance into an explosion of the three-sirens of flowers: tuberose absolute, jasmine and narcissus. Its Holiday Icon Set has the scent in 50ml, paired with a 7.5ml white lacquered Talisman Travel Spray, filled with the same scent.
For serious eyelash batting action, the Talika Fantastic Eyes L4 Kit is the perfect toolkit for envy-inducing long lashes. The eyelash growth and pigmentation serum will help her achieve denser, darker and curlier eyelashes in 30 days.
