Tinker Taylor Little Lip Kit, £36 + Oral Spotlight Sonic Toothbrush, £110

Loved By:  Zoë Taylor, Make-Up Artist & SL Beauty Contributor  Why It’s A Great Gift: “I have two things I’ll be gifting. Firstly, my Tinker Taylor Little Lip Kit. It’s a natural, three-step lip-care sequence that’s like a facial, but for your mouth. A favourite among beauty editors and celebrities, it’s my go-to for friends and family – plus, it’s sustainable, using only recyclable packaging. On top of that, I’ll be sending out the Oral Spotlight Sonic Toothbrush. A great gift for those serious about good dental hygiene, it’s so effective and completely changed my tooth care game for the better.” Available at TinkerTaylorBeauty.com & Boots.com

Constant Candles, £33

Loved By: Abigail James, Skincare Expert & Leading London Facialist Why It’s A Great Gift: “I recently came across this amazing female-led candle company and I’ll be stocking up from them for Christmas. Each candle is the epitome of luxury, while also being refillable. They are made from British rapeseed oil, so they have a low carbon footprint, while the pots are hand-made in Cornwall. Everything is so reasonably priced, despite being so indulgent. They all smell incredible, but ‘Advent’ is the one I’ll be gifting.”  Available at ConstantCandle.co.uk

Lip Serum Balms, £18

Loved By: Ruby Hammer, Make-Up Artist Why It’s A Great Gift: “This year, all the females in my life will be receiving my Lip Balm Serums as stocking fillers. Nourishing and hydrating, they are packed with skincare ingredients and provide a wash of dewy colour. It can be tricky buying beauty as an expert, as people think I’ve received it for free, but this way they get a product I love, and they know I’ve put the effort in.” Available at RubyHammer.com

Verden D’Orangerie Bath Oil & Candle Set, £120 (was £140)

Loved By: Georgia Day, Beauty Editor & SL Columnist  Why It’s A Great Gift: “I’m a big fan of treating loved ones to something that will really elevate the everyday and that they wouldn’t ordinarily treat themselves to – like this heavenly set from new beauty brand Verden. I really don’t think you can ever go wrong with a beautiful bath oil that will transform an otherwise humdrum half hour in the tub, while the scented candle is just the icing on the cake. The D’Orangerie scent is uplifting and zesty with citrus essential oils, and is guaranteed to brighten those dark January days no end.” Available at Votary.co.uk

Valentino Beauty Go-Clutch Dreamdust, £176

Loved By: Morgane Martini, Make-Up Artist Why It’s A Great Gift: “Complete with a setting powder and mini lipstick, this compact clutch is such a chic accessory.

Loved By: Katie Jane Hughes, Make-Up Artist Why It’s A Great Gift: “This may seem boring, but if you think about it, a cleansing balm is a very essential thing for everyone.

I’ll be gifting this Jelly Cleansing Balm from Ren – gentle, comforting and great for giving skin a bit of radiance, it’s my go-to for all skin types.” Available at LOOKFANTASTIC.com

Dija Ayodele, Black Skin: The Definitive Skincare Guide, £20

It’s a beautiful book, and so detailed.” Available at Waterstones.com

Diptyque Biscuit Candle, £60

Loved By: Lisa Potter-Dixon, Make-Up Artist, Author & Influencer   Why It’s A Great Gift: “New and limited edition, this Diptyque candle smells exactly as it says – of sweet, tasty biscuits.

Sisley Black Rose Mask, £119

Loved By: Michaella Bolder, A-List Facialist & Skincare Expert  Why It’s A Great Gift: “I use this mask often as an overnight hydration boost – it’s something everyone can benefit from as it’s so silky-soft. You instantly get a plumpness that’s akin to a facial, and you can use it as a straightforward moisturiser during the colder months. Incredibly versatile, it’s a skincare staple for all, so I’ll be gifting it to my nearest and dearest.” Available at SpaceNK.com
