Life is busy, and the months fly past so quickly!
Amidst the blur of work, chores, cooking, and life in general, it can be easy to lose sight of the ones we care about the most.
Sometimes, to say thank you, it’s a nice thing to spoil that special lady in your life.
For this blog post, we thought we’d pull together the ultimate gift guide chockful of the perfect gifts for her. Think of this as your bible for spontaneous gift giving or it can be used for Christmas, Valentine’s, and birthdays.
Before we get into the present ideas, in and of themselves, there are some rules of sorts to follow when giving gifts to her – Australia is no exception to that; no matter if you’re looking for gifts to get your mum, a colleague, friend, or significant other.
We find if you’re stuck on presents, or just feeling sluggish because it’s pre-coffee time, running through this etiquette guide can help kick start the brainstorming process.
- Don’t expect a gift in return
- Don’t make it about you
- Think like the receiver
- Don’t overspend
- BUT spend more on others than you would yourself
- Always use gift wrap or a bag
- Make the gift thoughtful
- Personalised gifts are always thoughtful
- Shop from Australian small businesses
- Give a greeting card with the gift
- Don’t be afraid to ask what someone needs
We may be a little biased here at Raw Beauty Box, but we think beauty products make great gifts no matter the occasion or the season.
Why, do you ask?
Because you’re giving the person you’re buying for the chance to unwind and pamper themselves.
Given the bizarre times we’re living in, beating stress and actually sitting back and relaxing have never been more important. We know for a fact that stress can affect sleeping, cause headaches, and impact mental performance.
And according to the American Psychological Association, women are more likely than men to report having a great deal of stress and fatigue. Of the women surveyed nearly half (49 per cent) said their stress had increased over the last five years.
So, with that said and done, let’s run through some perfect beauty gift ideas for her.
Pamper gifts for her come in many shapes and sizes. Below are some of our favourites at Raw Beauty Box.
A selection of scrubs
Our whipped salt sugar scrubs make the perfect gift if you’re looking to recreate a spa experience for the special someone in your life.
It allows the one you love to wash away the day’s impurities while leaving the skin invigorated, soft, fresh, and hydrated.
For this reason, they’re the perfect gift for any season or occasion: birthdays, Valentine’s, or anniversaries – you name it.
Each of our scrubs are made with ingredients that are kind to the environment. There are no parabens or harsh chemicals here.
Nothing is better than coming home and filling your haven with a beautiful scent.
That’s why our selection of environmentally friendly soy candles make for a great gift for her.
Our scents are delicate and unique, ranging from Caramel and Vanilla to Dragon’s Blood Incense.
We also sell wax melts, a safer option for households with pets and children. You can gift these at any time of the year or for any occasion.
Bath bombs ahoy
How often do you have time to sit and soak in a bath and wash the day’s toil away? By buying one – or more – of our bath bombs you’re giving permission to your special someone to do just that and take half an hour for themselves.
We stock everything from perfumed bath bombs and bubble bath bombs to soak bath bombs – so you’re sure to find an option.
Each is vegan-friendly and made with all-natural ingredients, so they are perfect for any occasion. We also sell them in duo packs and four packs.
Our favourite at the moment is our calming “Relax Lavender” bath bomb, but we have many other scents to choose from.
Whip it good
Our whipped soaps are an indulgent treat for bath time. They are butter-soft and almost cream-like, which allows them to work up a thick, foaming lather. They’re full of natural oils, which leave skin nourished and hydrated.
Because they have such a rich texture the user only needs a little bit each time – meaning a tub lasts ages!
They’re literally the gift that keeps on giving and are perfect year-round, no matter the gifting occasion.
If you’re having trouble choosing from the above – or want to gift a selection of products – check out our range of gift boxes.
One of our favourite pamper packs at the moment is our Luxe Packs, as they recreate the full spa experience at home.
Each comes with a whipped soap, bath bomb, and bubble dust; we’re talking the ultimate in bathing experiences here people.
The products are paired with different scents to fully invigorate the user. Think sultry Black Current and White Wood, or seductive Bitter Orange and Honey Suckle. Each product in the pack is made from all-natural ingredients to make the user feel goooood.
Gift giving can be difficult, but the reason is the same. You want to appreciate someone and thank them for all they are and all they do. Giving them the gift of self-care is the perfect way to say, “I value you”.
