5 Stunning Gift Hampers For Your Beauty-Obsessed Bestie!
Diwali is just around the corner, and it’s the season for showing your loved ones how much you care and love having them in your life! And what better way to show your beauty-obsessed bestie some love by gifting her a gorgeous gift hamper for this festival of lights? This selection includes everything from skincare to hair products, and even things for the home. Buying her a present she’ll love couldn’t be more stress-free!
1. Kama Ayurveda
This limited-edition festive gift box from Kama Ayurveda comes with two terracotta tealight holders from the handicrafts collective, Dastkari, to light up your home. Along with that comes a Sweet Basil Essential Oil and a pretty diffuser from Khurja to perfume your home perfectly. The box also contains a handmade Jasmine candle, a steam-distilled Mogra water, and a purifying Tulsi soap.
Cult Hungarian beauty brand, Omorovicza, is seriously popular for a reason. Its luxurious products are made with pure Hungarian thermal water from Budapest (the city has more thermal springs than any other place in the world) and mineral-rich moor mud from Hévíz, making them luxurious indulgences with serious skincare benefits. The Miracle Facial Set comes in a lovely gift box and includes some of its best-selling products. The dry Miracle Face Oil is infused with a unique blend of vitamin-rich Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil to rejuvenate the complexion, plant-derived Bakuchiol to help reduce wrinkles, and Rosehip Oil and Sweet Almond Oil for soft, supple skin. The rose-scented Queen of Hungary Mist is infused with Orange Blossom, Rose, and Sage Waters to purify and tone skin, while its Hydro Mineral Transference System delivers minerals deep into the skin for long-lasting hydration. Finally, there’s the Illuminating Moisturiser, which provides intense nourishment and minerals that can be absorbed by the deeper layers of skin. It is fortified with Ruby Crystal to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as Apple Pectin and Plum Almond Oil for long-lasting hydration.
3. Forest Essentials
Homegrown luxury Ayurveda brand, Forest Essentials, is among my favourite beauty brands, and cousins and friends who live abroad can’t stop ooh-ing and aah-ing every time I gift them things from the line. So this gift box definitely had to feature on my list. Firstly, how stunning is the fuchsia pink and forest green box with those intricate gold motifs? I’m a total sucker for pretty packaging! The assortment of natural skin products in the box includes an Ultra Rich Body Lotion, a Body Mist, and a Silkening Body Wash all scented with fresh and invigorating Oudh and Green Tea, making it the perfect gift for someone who loves beauty indulgences!
One of my favourite all-natural French drugstore brands is Nuxe, and its Rêve de Miel lip balm is a cult beauty product. So naturally, when I discovered that Look Fantastic’s India site had this gift set from the brand with a trio of its best-selling skincare products, I did a little happy dance in the office. The My Must Haves Gift Set consists of the nourishing Rêve de Miel Lip Balm that’s AH-mazing, especially if you suffer from dry, chapped lips. The highly concentrated formula combines honey with precious oils to nourish, soothe, and repair lips. Then there’s the Huile Prodigieuse dry facial oil, which is fortified with Vitamin E and six plant oils that soften skin and also reduce the appearance of stretch marks. What’s more, it can also be used on your body and hair. Finally, there’s the Rêve de Miel Hand & Nail Cream, chock full of Chilean rose, avocado, and sweet almond oil to deeply nourish your hands.

5. Look Fantastic Beauty Box
Now this isn’t a gift box per se, however, it’s the perfect present for a beauty-obsessed girl. Look Fantastic is a UK-based beauty e-store that retails some of the best-known international brands across the world. And thanks to its recently-launched India site, you can now access a ton of brands that haven’t yet reached Indian shores yet (read Jurlique, Caudalie, Eve Lom, Peter Thomas Roth, Illamasqua, Nars, the works!). What’s more, you can subscribe to its monthly Beauty Box, which contains a minimum of 6 premium products worth Rs 6,000 ranging from skin, hair, cosmetic, and body products. The contents of the box are a secret, so every month will be nothing short of a gorgeous surprise for your beauty-addict friend. (I’m gifting this to myself too!)
