Ahead, we’ve put together the best beauty gifts and sets to give (or get for yourself!) this season, including a newborn gift set from local brand A for Apothecary, skin-saving hand creams from South Korean brand Tamburins for your friends with perpetually dry hands, and other best-selling products.


SeaSun Society Multi-Vitamin Skin Bundle

Suitable for all skin types, non-comedogenic and all-natural, the Multi-Vitamin Skin Bundle from SeaSun Society will be the perfect gift for your skincare-loving friends. The naturally blue serum-and-face-oil duo contains blue chamomile essential oil, which has been used for centuries because of its healing properties and anti-inflammatory benefits.

SK-II PITERA™ First Experience Kit

Made for all skin needs and skin types, transform skin with this 3-step introductory kit containing SK-II’s bestselling essentials. It’s the perfect gift this holiday season.

Sigi Skin The Minis

A mini kit to discover new skincare favourites — use them for yourself, or share these with your friends who need some extra love.

Two Halves Better Balance Soothing Hydration Essence

Formulated for sensitive and sensitised skin, this low-pH, lightweight, watery gel is formulated to glide onto the skin. Created with a potent blend of botanical extracts packed with anti-inflammatory, anti-photoaging and antioxidant properties, it calms and nourishes the skin.

Rooki Beauty Green Pulp Paste Masque

Give yourself an at-home pamper session with this mask from Rooki Beauty. Made with the brand’s signature Green Pulp Paste™, this deeply hydrating gel masque will leave your skin with an instant glow. Time to gather your girlfriends for a festive slumber party.

Body Care

Tamburins H.And Cream Duet Set

Perpetually dry hands from washing and sanitising them? Nourish your hands with Tamburins’ Nude H.and Cream; it strengthens the skin barrier and is absorbed into the skin quickly. The clean, non-sticky texture leaves your hands soft and moisturized.

Grown Alchemist Hand Care Kit

Another formulation for the hands that we love — the Grown Alchemist Hand Care Kit is formulated with rich hydrating active botanicals to soften and smooth skin, leaving the skin feeling soft and supple. Plus, the full silver packaging is just so festive, don’t you think?

Delicat Skincare Nourish and Soothe Body Oil Duo

Why we are obsessed with this set: lightweight and non-greasy body oils that feel luxurious on the skin. The Sage Spanish scent is woody and slightly sweet on the skin, and we love the crisp and refreshing citrus scent of the Rosewood Body Oil. Massage in these oils after a bath-and-exfoliating session, perfect for those end-of-year staycations.

For Mom and Baby

One of the best gift sets for newborns — this curated gift set from A for Apothecary covers a baby’s journey throughout the first few months, ensuring only the most natural, gentle and hypoallergenic products on their skin.

A for Apothecary Anti Stretch Mark Oil

The perfect gift for new mothers — A for Apothecary’s Anti Stretch Mark Oil consists of 100% plant-based blend of jojoba, rosehip seed, oat lipids and sea buckthorn to help firm loose skin, improve elasticity and reduce the appearance of stretch marks during and after pregnancy.

A for Apothecary Eczema Relief Bundle

Created for sensitive and eczema-prone skin, the Eczema Relief Bundle helps to soothe skin problems and irritation due to eczema, chickenpox, nappy rash, heat rash, bug bites. The perfect bundle for even the most sensitive of skins.
