We all learnt this year that every moment spent together with our loved ones is a gift. 2020 made travelling, seeing family or friends very difficult, and for some of us this will be a very different Christmas season. As we may have to video call our friends and extended family, sending them a little gift will show how much we are thinking of them.

Here are our recommendations for thoughtful gifts that would cheer up the women in your life this holiday season. Also, if you are in need for further inspiration check our Christmas gift guide for gentlemen.

Skin Care Saviours

Nothing beats some high quality naturally formulated beauty products this season. In the colder months, the skin suffers from dryness and dehydration. As we learn to be gentler with the skin, and choosing better-formulated products, why not consider a seaweed cleansing lotion to upgrade any current beauty routine?

Seaweed Cleansing Lotion

Seaweed is a natural ingredient, high in vitamins and antioxidants. The Seaweed Cleansing Lotion combines rich plant extracts leaving your skin feeling fresh, comfortable, softer and more radiant.

The Seaweed Cleansing Lotion is an everyday use product and will be highly appreciated by any beauty lover, as it can remove the makeup as well. Our experts have previously written about the benefits of using a cleanser. It is extremely important to remove dirt, makeup, bacteria and oils that are acquired during the day while avoiding harsh ingredients that can irritate the skin.

Collagen Cream

Create a set by pairing the cleansing lotion with a seaweed-based face cream. Choosing a luxurious formula with botanical collagen extract, omega-rich oil, Vitamin E, and antioxidants will contribute to the appearance of a smooth, radiant, younger-looking skin. Vitamin E will give excellent protection and nourishment to the skin. If you would like to choose a cream better suited for the skin type of the receiver, you can learn more in our Skinimalism mini-series.

Spa at Home

After the challenges of 2020, show some appreciation by gifting products to be used to destress and unwind in the comfort of one’s home. Choose a body smoother and a body oil, that will allow the gift receiver to have some luxury at home with spa-quality products.

Body Smoother

A luxurious gift is a golden body smoother which combines four varieties of hand-harvested organic Irish seaweeds, Irish Atlantic sea salt, organic argan and grapeseed oils with pure organic essential oils of grapefruit and lemon. This zesty combination is amazing for a tired and weary body. It is a traditional and simple solution for those who like smooth, healthy skin and nails.

Body Oil

Follow up with a body oil combining the benefits of seaweed and pure organic essential oils - lavender, geranium & neroli and vitamin E. The ingredients will help hydrate and tone the skin, leaving it with a radiant glow. It is the perfect indulging gift.

Fashion Accessories

Whether this year you are celebrating at home, or in another location, accessories are always a good idea, as they can brighten up the entire look.


Pick a cotton scarf which is a breathable fabric and can be worn in multiple ways. If you prefer a scarf with a floral motif, then choose one with a darker background for this season.

A square scarf can be tightened around her hair to create some stunning looks during Christmas days. You can find inspiration about how to use your scarf in innovative ways in our guide. Or just wear it around your neck for some extra warmth.

Choose some patterns with vibrant colours such as reds and electric blue that will make the skin complexion look healthier and luminous. Colours have the gift of impacting the energy levels, thus increasing happiness this festive season.


Turning a new leaf in 2021 and hoping for a better year ahead, gift a recycled leather journal for all the notes one will have to take in the new year. This present is as thoughtful, creative and trendy as she is.

Journals and Notebooks

Journals are versatile and can be used for planning and organising the year ahead, collecting the best recipes she discovered during the lockdowns or just writing down some of her thoughts.

Not only this gift will be a source of inspiration and creativity, but it is also caring for the environment as the leather is 100% recycled. Pair it with a colour matching recycled leather pocket journal that she can keep in her bag for easy reach without weighing her down.

Now you are prepared with ideas so you can treat and surprise the women in your life: your girlfriend, wife, daughter, mother, grandmother or friend! Even if you cannot be together this festive season, a thoughtful present will brighten the atmosphere.
