9 Small But Mighty Gifts For You, From You

9 Small But Mighty Gifts For You, From You
What should I buy myself isn’t a question many of us contemplate much, especially not at this time of year. The shopping list is long enough – you’ve got to find the perfect makeup gift set and stocking fillers. Plus, Christmas is a time to think of others, it’s definitely not a time to ponder gifts for yourself.

Or is it time we bucked this age-old reasoning and treated ourselves to something small but mighty that will boost our mood and see us through the festive season? 2022 has been tougher than most of us could ever have imagined when the clock chimed midnight last December. We’ve decided that self-care gifts are a must-have and we’ve curated a list of thoughtful ‘from me, to me’ gifts just in case you come round to our way of thinking…

9 Of The Best Gifts For Yourself


Rare Beauty

Mini Matte Lipstick & Matte Lip Liner Duo, £19.00

The Best Mood-Boosting Self-Love Gift
A slick of lipstick can instantly improve your mood and Rare Beauty's mini duo allows you to sculpt and plump lips. While the finish is matte, the texture feels very much like a lip balm. Humble is a soft, natural nude that suits almost every skin tone too.


JVN Hair

What better way to relax into a chilly Sunday evening than treating your hair to this four-step smoothing routine?


This Works

Kind Hands Bauble, £6.00

The Best Self-Love Gift For Your Hands
For £6, this is nourishing hand cream is as guilt-free as self-gifting gets.

Stress Check Kind Hands is one of our favourite hand creams for this time of year.


Aromatherapy Associates

Ultimate Wellbeing Bath & Shower Oil Collection, £67.00

The Luxury Self-Care Gift
