Whether you’re looking to treat your girlfriend, boyfriend, husband, or wife, choosing the perfect Christmas present can be tough. If their interests in skincare, makeup, and beauty are alien to you, the job becomes even more difficult.

This year, let us help make your Christmas morning special, with our Christmas gift guide for husbands and boyfriends.

Choosing the perfect skincare gift

Any skincare enthusiast will tell you how important their routine is. Adding or skipping a step can be the difference between plump, glowing skin and a not-so-great complexion.

If you know your partner is into skincare, taking the time to choose a great gift for them is a great way to show how much you pay attention.

To get a little understanding of their unique skincare preferences, try to sneak a look around their bathroom. Look out for products for dry, oily, or combination, or any favourite beauty brands, and you’ll get a feel for what they love.

Some skincare items work for a range of skin types. If you’re really stuck, choose one of these to be in with a good chance:

Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel

This cleansing gel from Dermalogica is super-gentle, so it’ll be suitable for your partner, whether they have sensitive skin or not. With a gorgeous smell and tried-and-tested formula, this cleanser is just a little too pricey for many skincare fanatics to buy for themselves, making it the perfect Christmas present from a considerate husband or boyfriend.

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Skin Protectant Cream

Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream is a skincare icon. It soothes irritations and rehydrates hands, lips, and anywhere else in need of little extra care. The ultimate “how did you know!?” stocking filler, you can pick up a lip treatment and hand cream from the same range to really spoil them.

Choosing a makeup gift

The burden of many husbands’ and boyfriends’ Christmas? Choosing makeup gifts that’ll make them beam with gratitude. The easiest way to nail it is to choose a palette instead of a one-shade product that might not suit them.

If you choose a palette with a good range of luxurious, neutral colours, there are sure to be a few winners included. These are some of the best makeup palettes for Christmas:

Choosing a fragrance gift

A tried-and-tested Christmas gift, fragrance is a little luxury that can really show you care.
