The best and most luxurious festive gift sets (to gift and keep)
This year has seen some of the best holiday collections ever released, and they’re all available at KENS Apothecary
While children busy themselves with advent calendars filled with chocolates, sweets and toys, grown-ups tend to prefer a more indulgent and luxurious lead-up to the holidays or festivities.
Of course, some may consider the get-togethers with the family and festive feasts to be the highlight of the season, but there’s no beating luxurious gift sets filled with indulgent skin, hair and body care products as well as home fragrances to elevate the holiday mood with.
Here are some of our most favourite holiday collections brought to you by brands available at KENS Apothecary:
For those who love a variety, and believe that more is always better
Why settle for one when you can have an abundance of beauty products to pamper yourself with? This year’s KENS Apothecary Advent Calendar will not disappoint beauty enthusiasts, skincare addicts and those who truly know how to indulge in the best of the best, as this delightful box of goodies features a selection of cult-favourite products such as Caudalie’s refreshing Beauty Elixir, diptyque’s immensely popular Baies candle, Dr Barbara Sturm’s skin-transforming Hyaluronic Serum and more.
For those who love classic perfumes.
This feminine, floral and fruity fragrance is a classic one that’s suitable for anyone in the family — but preferably someone whom you call your “little darling”, which is the name of this iconic perfume. Its sweet, musky and sassy scent is the perfect combination of sweet innocence and evergreen ethereality, making it the perfect perfume to wear any time of the year but especially during the holidays. This holiday perfume set comes with a universal cream for the recipient to carry with them wherever they go, too.
For someone who loves looking flawless at all times
We all covet picture-perfect, pristine and spotless skin, which is why the Caudalie Vinoperfect Brightening Solution Trio would make the perfect gift to show your support for someone on their journey to achieving their dream skin. This is a skincare trio formulated with powerful ingredients including patented viniferine and niacinamide to promote a smoother, brighter and more even complexion, and effectively diminish dark spots, discoloration and redness.
For the hero in your life
Finding the perfect gift for the men in your life can be complicated, not to mention hard. But with Jack Black’s Holiday Collection, it’s only a matter of choosing which one would suit your grandfather, father, brother, boyfriend, husband — or any guy you’re shopping for! Jack Black’s Best Of Jack is the ultimate fool-proof choice as it features the brand’s best-selling hair and body wash, a cooling lotion, and an award-winning lip balm. We’re confident that the recipient, no matter who he is, will feel clean, energized and appreciated.
For the ultimate luxury lover
All that is glitter is indeed gold with Omorovicza’s Gold Cabinet. This wonderfully decadent collection harnesses the transformative properties of anti-inflammatory colloidal gold to repair and rejuvenate the skin — making it perfect for those who take their anti-ageing regime very seriously. The products featured in the Gold Collection work to strengthen the skin for a lifted, firmer and more radiant complexion while also reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As an extra treat, the cabinet also includes an eye wand and a gua sha to enhance circulation, lift and firm skin.
For someone who wants the best products for the best skin
Is there a skincare kit that would guarantee the best technology, protection and regenerative properties at one go? Well, the answer comes in the form of Dr Sebagh’s The Supreme Edit set, which comprises the Supreme Day Cream (a triple-protecting, luxurious cream that contains a powerful blend of antioxidants to help defend skin against free radical damage and provides anti-pollution benefits), Supreme Maintenance Youth Serum (the ultimate rejuvenating serum for the face, neck and décolleté), and Supreme Night Secret (voted ‘Best Night Cream for Mature Skin’ by Harper’s Bazaar), which will work to better the skin all day and all night.
For those who adore the scent of rum
What better way to impress your holiday guests than with Malin+Goetz’s best-selling rum hand and body duo? Featuring a gentle yet thorough hand and body cleanser paired with the quick-absorbing, long-lasting Vitamin B5 Body Lotion that’s infused with the brand’s signature Rum scent, this perfectly paired set will gently cleanse yet deeply hydrate the skin and make anyone smell as good as they feel. How apt for the holidays!
For someone who’s keen to try a truly luxurious skincare routine
There’s no better time to truly indulge in beauty and self-care rituals than the holidays, which is why the EVE LOM Rescue Glow Discovery Set is one of our favourites to recommend. This luxe gift set with an elegant design features Eve Lom’s iconic Cleanser, Rescue Toner, Rescue Peel Pads and Moisture Cream for a full-on Eve Lom experience. Plus, it does come with the brand’s signature muslin cloth — which coaxes its recipient to really take their time with their beauty routine instead of speeding through it as we normally would.
For someone who can’t wait to ‘glow’ all out during the holidays
If someone’s sporting that wonderful holiday glow, it could very well be because of REN’s ‘All is Bright’ Radiance P.M Duo Set, which includes radiance-revealing bestsellers that have been proven to reveal a brighter, healthier and even-looking complexion — and we all know how much everyone would love to put their best face forward during the holidays. This set includes REN’s multi-tasking Daily AHA Tonic that exfoliates, brightens, tightens and hydrates for a smooth, even and energized complexion, and the targeted Sleeping Cream that has been clinically proven to reduce the appearance of dark spots. This way, you’ll have brighter skin and a brighter outlook for the next year!
For someone who appreciates decorative and decadent hand care kits
Grown Alchemist’s Holiday Kit 4 comprises a 380ml Sweet Orange, Cedarwood and Sage hand wash in a limited-edition amber glass bottle (which would be an ultra-luxe addition and staple piece in anybody’s home), and their best-selling Vanilla and Orange Peel hand cream. We all need a little holiday hand care, and this kit by Grown Alchemist is one of our top choices as their products are formulated with rich and nourishing active botanicals to refresh, soften and smooth the hands.
