Nothing puts your shopping skills to the test quite like Christmas. Finding the perfect gift within your budget for all those you love best often makes Christmas time feel like the Olympics of great gift buying. To help you win that Gold Medal with ease, here’s our pick from the Exclusive to Edgars products to suit every unique personality on your Christmas shopping list, while earning loyalty points on your Edgars Thank U card!

Lavish Luxury - for Mom or Gran
Every woman wants to stay looking young and at her best and this Christmas, the ultimate spoil has to be Radical Skincare’s highly acclaimed anti-ageing products. Used by a number of well-known Hollywood celebrities, we recommend the Peptide Infused Antioxidant Serum (R1650) or the Anti-Aging Restorative Moisturiser (R1300).

A touch of pretty glamour - for your bestie or boss
SAMPAR has an incredible range of super effective and pretty products for this special person. Choose Glamour Shot Eyes (R295) to keep eyes looking bright and youthful or First Hands Cream (R395), a magic anti-ageing formula for hands. A real treat is SAMPAR’s Lavish Dream Cream (R990) or Joyous Body Milk (R465).    

Natural goodness – for the natural loving beauties
Look no further than Korres, a natural skincare and cosmetics range, new to South Africa which has been all the rage in Europe. Choose from an incredible selection of body milks and butters, scrubs and soaps with lavish ingredients such as Japanese Rose, Fig, Jasmine, White Tea and Basil Lemon, all for under the price of R150.

For fantastic natural cosmetics, why not give her a Korres Cherry Lip Gloss (R180), Sunflower and Primrose Eye Shadow (R140) or Rice Bran Mascara (R185). From foundations to blushers and nail polishes (all under R345), it’s so easy to put together a personal Korres selection of make up for that special friend.

Fun make up gifts for your bestie
GOSH has two great gift sets for you to treat your your bestie who loves to look good! The Amazing Gift Set (R140) will allow her to create the perfect look of long lashes and pefectly lined eyes with GOSH’s Amazing Length‘n Build Mascara in black and GOSH Velvet Touch Eye Liner in Black Ink.

For the ultimate party girl – give her the Girls on Film Gift Box (R210). With the latest GOSH Catchy Eyes Mascara for ultra seductive eyes, pinkish glitter Nail Lacquer 619 and Light’n shine Lip Glaze with its own built in light and mirror in 04 Rosa, it creates a fantastic look for a night out on the town this Christmas!

Treat them like Royalty
Great for both guys and girls, the Kings & Queens range of body care products are cool and quirky as each one tells a unique and intriguing ancient myth. Choose Tsar Peter Tobacco Shower Gel (R69) or Bergamot Pepper Soap (R39) for him or Nefertiti Honey Body Milk (R89) and Queen Elizabeth Sugar Body Butter (R109) for her.

For the Nail fashionista
Looking for something small, stylish? GOSH and Nails Inc have a fabulous range of nail colours for you to choose from. Personalise your gift by choosing from GOSH’s intense range of colours such as Bubblegum, Flamingo or Miss Minty (R79 each), or give her a great ready-made set from Nails Inc, the Nail Polish Diary (R495) or the Christmas Cracker Set (R385). With fantastic special effects and the latest trends to try, you can both have fun experimenting this Christmas.

Unforgettable Fragrances for everyone
It would not be Christmas without the perfect hand-picked fragrance and here are some great fragrances to choose from.

Spoil the men in your life with Korres’ Saffron (50ml) or Vetiver (50ml) for men. For women, White Tea (50ml) Peony (50ml), Vanilla (50ml) and Iris (50ml) are an excellent gift choice, all for just R420 each.

Young ladies will love the Gossip Girl fragrances (R295 each) from Scent Story. Inspired by the popular TV series, Spotted (50ml) is a citrus and floral fragrance, perfectly at home in the most fashionable rendez-vous, whilst XOXO (50ml) is a confident, floriental and cosmopolitan perfume with a romantic heart for girls who have a taste for self-indulgence.

For 24 fans, guys will enjoy one of the four fabulous scent options to suit his personality and style, including 24 Classic (50ml) or 24 Platinum for R495 or 24 Gold (50ml) for R535.

GOSH In The Box fragrances (R195) for women and for men are a also a great gift. For something simpler, choose the floral Nothing More For Her (R149) in gold packaging or the modern fresh, sliver packaged Nothing More for Him (R149).

Finally, for a fun and quirky range of personalised fragrances, look no further than the Kings & Queens variety of great scents all for R199. Our recommendations include Perfume Queen Sheba for Her (100ml), Perfume King Solomon for Him (100ml) or Perfume Ophir Gold for Him (100ml).
