8 Christmas Must-Haves

As if we are talking about Christmas already! It feels like the kids went back to school 5 minutes ago, let alone that half term is about to creep up on us. Talking of creeping… we have Halloween to get through first.

However, when it comes to giving (and receiving) the best gifts, getting in early doors is key, before things start to sell out. We’ve compiled a Christmas List of the best gift sets available this season to make sure you, your friends and family are all set for lush locks in 2022.

Authentic Beauty Concept Hydrate

A carefully curated gift collection offered in a limited edition cosmetic bag made of 100% organic cotton. Inside you’ll find a full size Hydrate Cleanser and Mask. You’ll also find the new Hand & Hair Light Cream.

For those who are not skimping on the moisturised hair, the. gift set is also available for coloured hair (Glow Cleanser and Conditioner) and for damaged hair (Replenish Cleanser and Conditioner).

Aveda x 3.1 Philip Lim Holiday Collection

To be honest we just love the botanical design of the box. But as Aveda Botanical Repair fans, this one nears the top of our list.
