Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide
Left your Christmas shopping to the last minute (again)? Habiba Katsha has got you covered
After what has felt like the longest year ever, 2020 is finally coming to an end and Christmas is officially here. Collectively, I think we can all agree that this year has been tough and now it’s a chance for all of us to celebrate.
If, like me, you’ve left your Christmas shopping to the last minute, don’t stress because we have a list of presents for you to choose from. From loungewear to jewellery, we’ve handpicked the perfect holiday gift list for you. Whether you’re treating a colleague, family member or even yourself, have a read of our 2020 Christmas gift list.
If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s the importance of reflection. 2020 made us all pause and think about our lives in ways we probably didn’t do before. This journal is a three-year reflection diary that asks you the same question every year for three years. Perfect for the reflective pal.
Nothing screams Christmas more than a new piece of jewellery. This small piece of jewellery is the perfect accessory to update your zoom call or a trip down to your local shop. It even comes with a personalised birthstone to match.
If you fell in love with your make-up or skin routine this year, this make-up mirror and speaker is for you. This halo mirror has a built-in speaker and a ring light, perfect for taking selfies in your room.
You can never go wrong with a make-up gift for Christmas especially when it’s from Fenty. This lipgloss is a twist on the cult classic gloss bomb. Lip Glosses are the perfect gifts as you don’t have to be a make-up pro to wear them.
Perfumes may be a bit predictable, but they’re the ultimate Christmas gift. If you’re unsure about what to get someone you can rest assured that no one will complain when you get them a new perfume. The infamous Black Opium can be gifted to your mum, sister, or even yourself!
Before this year I wasn’t really a loungewear person but being cooped up indoors has changed my thoughts on loungewear. You don’t always want to be working from home in your trackies and this set looks cute and cosy which is perfect for relaxing at home over Christmas.
Finding a way to focus on your mental health is important and this journal can help you with that. Covid-19 has made a lot of us more anxious than usual and journaling is a great way to battle those anxieties. This journal includes questions and statements that can help you with your mental health journey.
PJ’s aren’t the most luxurious gift but, they can be when they look like this. These silk Pyjama set will automatically upgrade your Christmas morning and make you feel like you’re staying at The Ritz.
If you don’t fancy buying someone a bottle of perfume, candles are your next best bet. This candle has different scents to choose from such as Black Pomegranate, Lime, Basil and Mandarin, Wild Flowers, and Jasmine and Orange. You can also add a personalised message to make it that little bit more special.
