The holiday season can be very exciting, but it can also be frustrating when you can’t decide what gifts you should give to the special person in your life. For new couples spending their first holiday season together, it is important to make it an unforgettable memory and impress their loved ones with a gift he or she loves. In case you need a bit of inspiration, here are some great suggestions for gift ideas!


For Her


Pat McGrath Labs LuxeTrance Lipsticks



Pat McGrath Labs’ recent launch in Sephora has drawn lots of attention. There have been so many good reviews about their matte lipsticks. From the beautiful packaging to its smooth, long-lasting texture, this lipstick is a perfect gift. And with a variety of colors available, you will be able to find the shade that fits her best.

Maison Margiella REPLICA Discovery Set For Her




Fragrance is always a great gift option for girls, and it is always fun for her to explore new scents with a sampler set. Maison Margiella is one of my favorite fragrance brands of all time. They are famous for their Replica collection, which represents specific scenes or moments from real life through each fragrance. This gift set contains the scents “Beach Walk,” “Lazy Sunday Morning,” and “Jazz Club.” Of the three, Lazy Sunday Morning is always my favorite scent. It represents a memory of soft, sunlit warmth and reminds me of lychee soda every time I smell it, even though there is no fruit in the notes at all.

For Him


Foreo Luna For Men 2




Foreo Luna 2 is a great cleansing and pre-shaving device for men. I have been using the For Women version for a long time, and whenever people ask me why I don’t just wash my face with my hands, I always tell them that you feel the difference as soon as you try it out. You will never achieve the same soft touch of your skin when washing your face with your hands, and this really cleanses your skin a lot better. If you are not sure what to get him, then gift him with fresher, softer skin!

Everlane The Twill Snap Backpack




A nice, durable backpack can be a great gift idea for him. I like this backpack from Everlane because of its stylish design and sturdy twill fabrication. It could be used for class or for travel. What’s more, there are also different color options to choose from!
