Christmas gift ideas for every hair and beauty enthusiast
A curated edit of gift ideas for her – even if you think she already has everything.
What’s your one take away from the past year? How to bake banana bread? Learning to organise and declutter your home? How to stay motivated to keep fit? Perhaps it’s all of the above, but also, of course, appreciating your friends and family always. If there’s one thing we all learnt from the Coronavirus pandemic it’s that we should never take our loved ones for granted, and we should show them how much we care at every. Single. Opportunity.
And so, we’ve curated the ultimate list of gift ideas for her. Not because you need to spend all your pennies on the best gifts for women to show your appreciation for them, but because those with spare change burning a hole in their loungewear pockets might like to.
Whether you’re gearing up for Christmas or she simply needs her spirits lifted (you definitely don’t *need* an excuse to send your bestie/sister/mum/colleague a lil’ pick-me-up), we’ve found 21 gift ideas that she’s pretty much guaranteed to love. From sparkling new ghd giftsets to nourishing Moroccanoil treatments and OPI Pro Spa bundles perfect for those cosy nights in. Even if you’re convinced she already has everything, we promise she won’t say no to these sought after gifts. (Or even ask you for the gift receipt).
ghd Limited Edition Platinum+ Giftset In Iridescent White
The stunning limited edition platinum+ from ghd is the ultimate styler (for so many reasons) and a firm Regis favourite. Not to mention it’s sparkling, cosmic-inspired makeover in iridescent white makes it the perfect gift for hair passionistas this festive season. Thanks to its award-winning SMART technology, you’ll be treating her to easy, dynamic styling, which is bound to put a smile on her face. In fact, its advanced technology is so intelligent it predicts hair type and constantly adapts the power to ensure an optimum styling temperature at all times. She’ll be able to create sleek, straight styles or bombshell curls and waves that last all day long. Help a special someone create beautiful, kind-to-hair styles with 20% more shine and 2x more colour protection. Now who would say no to that?
ghd Limited Edition Gold Gift Set In Iridescent White
The updated version of the original ghd styler, (for those of us who bought it as our first ever ‘straightener’ way back when), the gold offers versatile, kind-to-hair styling. Equipped with two next-generation heat sensors, this styler ensures an optimum (and safe) styling temperature of 185ºC is maintained evenly across each plate. The plates are made of aluminium which is used because it has powerful heat conducting properties – four times better than steel. Each aluminium plate is coated with a thin layer of an advanced ceramic, which helps the plates glide smoothly (and snag-free) throughout her hair, leaving it shiny and smooth. And just like the platinum+, it comes complete with the celestial looking iridescent white makeover as part of the #ghdwishuponastar collection.
ghd Limited Edition Helios Hair Dryer In Stylish White
Lift spirits (and her hair) with the powerful new addition to the ghd hairdryer range: the ghd helios. High-volume hair is striking, versatile and gives off that all important vibe of healthy hair.
Now available in a limited edition stylish white coat with gold dust accents, it’s guaranteed to sit pretty on any dressing table. Featuring Aeroprecis technology, the ghd helios combines advanced internal aerodynamics and a bespoke contoured nozzle to focus the high-power airflow, so she can dry and style her look with speed and control. The longer-life, brushless motor delivers a powerful 75mph airflow to drastically speed up styling, so she won’t miss a moment of the festivities. Let her style a breath-taking blow dry with 30% more shine for a glamorous Christmas look that will turn every head, even if it’s a virtual party!
Complete with a luxurious dust bag to keep your treasures safe, the ghd helios may well be the perfect gift she never thought she needed.

With the kind of year we’ve had, sometimes it’s a good idea to go back to basics, even with your haircare regime. Treat her hair to the TLC it’s likely been crying out for due to salon closures during lockdowns, quarantines and everything else in between. And with that said, Moroccanoil is the perfect place to start if you’re looking for thoughtful gift ideas.
Choose from the Repair, Hydrate or Volume Back to Basics giftsets which include the Moroccanoil Treatment and a Shampoo and Conditioner. What’s more, it’s priced at £32.85 – the same as a standalone 100ml Moroccanoil Treatment, so essentially, you’re getting the shampoo and conditioner for free!

System Professional Giftsets
If you’re Christmas shopping for someone who likes to know the sciency aspect of haircare – take note of the System Professional giftsets. The haircare experts at System Professional have spent 40 years working to develop a way of offering personalised haircare both in salon and at home. Here’s a little nugget of information you can wow her with if she’s knowledge-thirsty:
The energy profile in each of our hair decides elasticity, responsiveness and fibre health. This ‘energy fingerprint’ is decided by the lipid level within our hair. Lipids actively influence hair’s energy, despite only making up 4% of our hair, and act as a flexible bond between keratin ensuring cuticle flexibility and integrity.
With targeted doses of System Professional’s unique EnergyCode™ Complex, their products address each unique energy profile with 2 ingredients targeting the scalp and 2 for the hair.
Memorise that and she’ll probably think of you as her new hair guru!
System Professional Wanderlust
This limited-edition set contains no less than 4 haircare products from System Professional: Silver Shampoo, Repair Conditioner, Hydrate Mask and Luxe Oil. This is a great way for her to sample the range before deciding to buy the products full size. Or – if she’s already planning jetting off somewhere hot when all this is over (aren’t we all) these are perfect travel size companions.
Moroccanoil Mini Must-Haves
Looking for a thoughtful secret santa gift for a colleage? Or are you looking for something a little extra to add to her presents this year? The Moroccanoil Mini Must-Haves make for the perfect addition. Containing a Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo (choose for either light or dark hair) and a Moroccanoil Treatment mini.
Fortified with ultra-fine starch, the lightweight spray instantly revives hair between washes to banish any signs of odour, product build-up or grease, whilst the famous Moroccanoil Treatment leaves your hair smooth and nourished.
OPI Beauty Bundles
If your friend could do with a little help in the nailcare department this winter, then OPI holds the key. Treat her to an OPI bundle (or two) and she’ll have a whole new perspective on nail care routines. Silky hands, nourished cuticles and healthy looking nails – it’s the gift that keeps on giving!
