bhave Christmas Gift Packs
Summer plays absolute havoc with my hair thanks to the high humidity causing unwanted frizziness and my frequent swims in chlorinated pools and the salty ocean. My ongoing use of heated hair styling tools doesn’t help my hair either!
Being the party season I want my hair looking it’s best which is why in Summer I always return to using my holy grail of hair care brands, bhave.
bhave currently have 5 limited edition Christmas gift packs for sale which are perfect gifts for the special women on your gift giving list.
My favourite of these gift packs is the bhave Damage Control Gift Pack which contains the bhave Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner and bhave Riot Control Oil, all packaged in a bonus eco-friendly multi-purpose lunch bag.
The bhave Rescue range restores strength, condition, elasticity and shine to your hair. All bhave products are free of nasties including sulphates and parabens. Any woman would love this Christmas gift pack of hair saviours!

Bobbi Brown Lip Crush Mini Crushed Lip Color Kit
Another perfect little luxurious gift is this Bobbi Brown Lip Crush Mini Crushed Lip Color Kit. Everyone knows that women love lipstick! And what’s better than one luscious, pigment-rich Crushed Lip Color lipstick? The answer is five of them in sweet little sizes which once again can easily fit into the tiniest of party clutch bags or pockets.
I have previously reviewed the full sized versions of these lipsticks HERE.
These lipsticks have a light weightless formula, soft matte blotted-down finish and balm-like feel. They are super comfortable to wear all party long keeping your lips hydrated and kissably soft.
You’ll be tempted to buy these lipsticks for yourself this Christmas! Or maybe you could divvy them up with your bestie!
The 5 shades of Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color in this kit include regal, Ruby, Lilac, Bare and Babe.

Ella Bache Active Lotion Great SPF50+
Summer is the time for pool parties, picnics and barbecues. Having suffered with a malignant melanoma in the past I ALWAYS apply SPF50+ outdoors and I love the idea of gifting my besties with luxurious sun lotions they may not have bought for themselves, that not only protect their skin from sun damage but also nourish and moisturise their skin at the same time.
Ella Bache’s Active Lotion Great SPF50+ is a lightweight, fast absorbing sun lotion perfect for active lifestyles. It is water resistant for 4 hours and provides broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays. It is enriched with lanolin, macadamia nut oil and squalene from olive oil to keep skin soft, moisturised and hydrated, as well as super fruit complex for extra antioxidant protection.
Specifically designed for sports and especially water sports it is the Christmas gift all your friends and family need.
Another gift suggestion is buying your children sunscreen specifically designed for kids as an extra stocking stuffer gift. This will help ensure their skin is protected during all the Summer holiday fun.

Ella Bache Discovery Set
In Summer with all the hours we spend outdoors as well as all the partying we do our skin can suffer just when we’re wanting it to look it’s glowing best.
Help your family and friends maintain beautiful glowing skin throughout the Christmas and New Year Party season with this Ella Bache Discovery Set.
This limited edition gift box contains travel sized Moisture Rich Cleansing Milk, Strengthening Serum and Softening Jojoba Cream. This is also a great Christmas gift for family and fiends who will be travelling these holidays.
This gift box is part of Ella Bache’s celebration of the Art of Glowing Skin with the art work painted by renowned Melbourne based artist Kerry Armstrong. This gift box is almost too beautiful to cover up with wrapping paper.
Schique Vegan Skincare
Schique Vegan Skincare launched in Australia on TVSN in October this year. Developed by Dr Jacqueline Schaffer after watching her mother battle skin cancer, she was determined to provide a range of skincare that could be trusted.
The resulting Schique Skincare range is a luxurious skincare line that is vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free, sulfate-free and paraben-free.

L’Occitane Light Hand Cream
Everyone wants beautiful soft hands in Summer making this limited edition L’Occitane x Castelbajac Paris collaboration Light Hand Cream a winning Christmas gift. It comes in such a bright, bold, beautiful Summery yellow box that it’s almost a pity to hide this box in wrapping paper!
This lovely scented hand cream is enriched with 5% Shea Butter and has a delightful whipped texture. It helps nourish, protect and soften hands. It’s a wonderfully useful yet beautiful beauty gift to give this Christmas.
L’Occitane products are available from TVSN and L’Occitane boutiques.
Cheeki Stainless Steel Straws
My last two gift suggestions aren’t beauty related but are definitely Summer Party related.
Giving a pack of Cheeki Reusable Stainless Steel Straws is a beautiful and thoughtful gift for your environmentally conscious friend!
By using reusable stainless steel straws instead of single use plastic straws at Summer parties we can collectively save millions of plastic straws from ending up in our beautiful oceans and from harming our precious marine life.
Cheeki straws have a comfortable rounded mouthpiece and come in the chicest cocktail of colours including silver, gold, black and my favourite, rose gold. They come in packs of two or four, and in straight or bent formations. Each pack comes with a cleaning brush.

Give the gift of a Cheeki Stainless Steel Tumbler to enable your gift recipient to party by the pool, barbecue or picnic with a reusable environmentally friendly stainless steel tumbler instead of throw away plastic cups.
I’m planning on buying more of these Cheeki Insulated Tumblers to gift to my family to use around our pool area this Summer and beyond. Being insulated they also have the advantage of keeping drinks cold for up to 6 hours. Plus I love the spill-proof lid!
These tumblers come in three beautiful Summery colours including Dusty Pink, Pistachio and the photographed Ocean.
