Trying to find a gift for the women in your life can be more than a little difficult, especially when you want it to be perfect. With holiday season having already begun, we’ve compiled a list of the 9 brands we love right now and the items we know would make great gifts! Whatever your budget, whether you’re searching for something for your mum, sister or best friend, we’ve got you covered!
1. Pink’s Boutique
Try Me Set - Rose Body, £20.00
As the months get colder, a little skincare can go a long way. To keep dry skin at bay, opt for the Hydrating Deep Cleansing Melt (£40) which is perfect for calming and cleansing the skin. If you’re searching for a gift set, we love the Rose Body (£20) and Anti Ageing Facial (£25) Try Me sets, which are also great for rehydrating and replenishing skin.
2. Lilly Lashes
3D Mink Lashes - Miami, £29.50
Who doesn’t love a good pair of lashes? Creating instant drama and placing the finishing touches on any look, Lilly Lashes are perfect for every makeup lover. Worn by everyone from the Kardashian-Jenner clan to Lady Gaga, they’re a cult favorite. High-quality, lightweight and reusable - we’re not surprised they’re so popular! Our personal favorites are Miami (£29.50) and Doha (£29.50).
3. Nizz Cosmetics
Moroccan Nude Lipstick, £16.00
While eyebrows had their moment earlier this year, it’s all about the lips this season. Bold and daring, or neutral and barely-there, Nizz Cosmetics has 16 lipsticks that cater to some of this season’s biggest lip trends. They’re long-lasting and pigmented, and are infused with sweet almond oil and shea butter to ensure lips stay hydrated. They’re also vegetarian-friendly and animal cruelty-free, making them a guilt-free buy! We particularly love Cashmere Nude (£16), Cranberry (£16) and Moroccan Nude (£16).
4. Ayesha Ziya
Signature Oud, £89.00
Ayesha Ziya’s Middle Eastern inspired fragrances are perfect for a lover of Arabian oud. The His and Hers - Oud and Irum set (£129.99) would be ideal for giving to a couple, or even to your other half, while Signature Oud (£89) is one of our favorite scents.
5. Zeba and Layla Hijabs
Nordic Vibes Scarf, £26.00
Holiday season usually brings with it a lot of events. For a woman that isn’t partial to sparkly jewelry or glittery makeup, a boldly printed scarf can be understatedly dressy. We love Zeba and Layla’s Fight or Flight Scarf (£26) as well as the Nordic Vibes Scarf (£26).
For a lady who loves luxe patterns and pretty detailing, Foulard’s scarves are sure to be a hit. The Black Scarf with Black Embroidery (£38) and the Ivory White Scarf with Off-White Embroidery (£38) are classically pretty, while the Royal Red Scarf with Black Lace (£35) is boldly beautiful.
Chinim Abaya, £100.00
As one of this season’s biggest trends, embroidered detailing can be seen on everything, from high street to high end pieces. With its ability to make the simplest item look a little more exciting, we love it! The Blush Pink Embroidered Abaya (£110) and the Chinim Abaya (£135) would make great gifts for a modestly fashionable lady.
8. Sakura Malaysia
A good handbag can entirely up a woman’s style game. As the key accessory in an ensemble, it can make you look put together in seconds. The Sakura Malaysia range is stylish yet unique, making it perfect for trendsetters and lovers of fashion. With metallics being big this season, the Mini Duffle Tote Bag in silver (£44) is totally on trend, while the Dark Purple Mini Duffle Tote Bag (£44) is perfect for winter. If you’re looking to splurge, the Ice Blue Print Octagon Shaped Cross-Body Bag (£559) is beautiful!
9. Silsal Design
Silsal Design create beautifully crafted pieces that bring Islamic art into the home. The 18-Piece Ghida Dinnerware Set (£155) is sure to be cherished by your mother or aunt, particularly one with a love for Middle Eastern decor. The ‘Knowledge is Light’ Book Ends (£94) are classically beautiful, forming the perfect gift for your favorite bookworm.
