And let’s face it, Aēsop practically invented luxury beauty, which is why your giftee will be uber impressed with this orange, rosemary and lavender scented duo.

ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS MINI NORVINA PRO PIGMENT PALETTE VAULT
No luxury gift guide would be complete without Anastasia Beverly Hills, and it doesn’t get more iconic than their Norvina collection. The Mini Norvina Pro Pigment Palette Vault includes Vol.1, Vol.2, and Vol.3 mini palettes, each featuring nine ultra-pigmented shades that will instantly upgrade any beauty obsessive’s palette stocks. Trust us, this is the gift luxury beauty lovers want and need.
NEOM WELLBEING POD ESSENTIAL OIL DIFFUSER
Spa vibes are synonymous with luxury, which is why NEOM’s Wellbeing Pod Essential Oil Diffuser has made the luxury gifting cut. The oil diffuser gently fills a room with a humidifying mist and scent of choice (we stan the Perfect Night’s Sleep Essential Oil Blend), to boost mood, help with sleep, and reduce stress. But this little gem isn’t a one trick pony. The pod also has a low energy LED light to create that hygge, glowing light that all spa vibes need.
SKIN GYM WRINKLIT LED MASK
This is the boujiest facial mask you’ll ever see, and we guarantee your luxury lover will be obsessed a) because the Wrinklit LED Mask is as luxury as skincare gets, and b) because it is hot off the trending conveyor belt. The LED facial mask uses three settings (blue, red, and orange) to help with everything from acne prone skin and dullness to redness and anti-aging concerns. All we’re saying is, a glowing, radiant complexion is always a great gift.
GRAVITY WEIGHTED BLANKET
We mean this when we say it, a weighed blanket will be a game changing gift. Sure, cute, cosy blankets are always gorg gifts, especially when facing the grim winter months, but Gravity’s Weighted Blanket is so much more than that. Designed to help to relieve stress and anxiety, the blankets create the sensation of being hugged to help to relax the nervous system and have countless positive effects on the body. Studies have shown that weighted blankets can help to increase serotonin (the happiness hormone) and melatonin (the sleep hormone), and we don’t think there is a better Christmas gift than that.
CLINIQUE POP TREATS
If you came to this gift guide looking for a little something to impress a secret Santa giftee, this one’s for you. Clinique’s Pop Treats are the perfect little duo for impressing the boujie beauty obsessive in your office and will probably win you a reputation as the best gift giver in the office. Featuring the Pop™ Lip Colour + Primer in Plum Pop and the Pop Splash™ Lip Gloss + Hydration in Air Kiss, this is the luxury gift that all stockings deserve.

And let’s face it, there is no better gift than the gift of a really good sleep. NEOM’s Beautiful Night’s Sleep Set features four iconic products from the Scents to Sleep range and is ideal for creating a bedtime routine. With the Perfect Night’s Sleep Bath Foam, Perfect Night’s Sleep Pillow Mist, Perfect Night’s Sleep Overnight Facial Cream, and Perfect Night’s Sleep Face Oil, all enriched with the lavender, sweet basil, and jasmine scent, this is luxury sleep bottled.
