Christmas is so near that between deciding what to give and actually getting them, there’s only so much time left.
Still, one shouldn’t rush in getting presents for loved ones. It should be personal, with a lot of thought put into it.
In my own reflections, I find that there are several things I use which I feel would make great gifts for a lot of people. There are also items I put on my wish list which I could also easily recommend to someone whose needs are similar to mine.
Women, even those who don’t wear makeup often, appreciate a good brow product. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade is a good choice. Now available in the Philippines, thanks to Sephora PH, this cult favorite will be a hit with your makeup-obsessed friend.
The formula is easy to work with, with just the right amount of pigment to create realistic hair strokes.
I dream of having a Loewe Hammock bag. If I could gift myself with something, it would be this bag. This is great for busy multitasking women, as it can carry a lot.
But more than function, it has a unique design that will add interest to any outfit and will suit any style.
For the lipstick fan, the Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip would be a good addition to her collection. This new line of lipsticks from Bobbi Brown offers comfortable wear with rich pigments. Red Berry is a good bet for friends who need a lipstick for nights out.
Any sneakerhead would appreciate a pair of the Off-White x Converse Chuck 70. Part of Virgil Abloh’s sneaker collabs, the beloved design and comfort of the Chuck are given some aesthetic upgrade.
A classic man set in his ways would find good use for a bottle of the Acca Kappa 1869 Perfume for Men. This has complex notes of cardamom, geranium; heart notes of violet leaves, iris, leather, bay leaves; and base notes of amber, vanilla, incense, vetiver and citrus.
For someone who needs a reliable bag, the Paul Smith Signature Stripe Business Folio is a fine choice. It’s a durable choice that looks stylish but not trendy, so he can use it for a long time.
