Nothing says you put a lot of thought into your gift for a loved one better than something that fits their lifestyle and personality to a T. It’s the thought that counts, they say — and we truly think it is. But we also know how hard it is to find that one thing. So we say why settle for just one? ‘Tis the season to shower your loved ones with presents after all. A curated box of items is just what you need. Ahead, our recommendations for different personalities in your life — all of which can easily be found at Junction 8. Plus, learn how you can get cashback on your gift shopping!
The Sassy Girlfriend
She knows exactly what she wants and you, for sure, will give it to her. For your passionate friend whose spark of energy never runs out, a box full of items that are as lively as her personality is perfect. Take care of her beauty needs with a scintillating Kate Spade (BHG) scent, a romantic and sparkly palette and show-stopping lip colour from Etude House, and a staple lip mask from Laneige. Ever the centre of attention, she’d look well at ease in a bright pink GG/5 button-down dress and a pair of Cabanna (BHG) nude pumps.
The Effortless Goal-Setter
Your friend has her goals locked in, but you have your eyes set on yours, too. And that is to give her the best gifts she could receive this season. For a no-time-to-waste woman, a reliable foundation like Candid from Revlon (BHG) is a must. A go-getter through and through, she needs an outfit that’s easy to put on but not boring. A stylish grey blazer from GG/5, a pair of sleek no-nonsense loafers from Sorbet (BHG), a trusty scrunchie from Helen, and a multi-pocketed bag from Leather Atrium is just what she needs for accomplishing her many tasks with ease — and style.
The Cool Fashionista
What do you give a cool girl for Christmas? Presents that are just as cool as her, of course. On our list is an astonishing scent like Ambre Noir by Ambre Noir Fragrances (BHG), an elegant leather bag from Leather Atrium, chic bangles from Simply Wicked (BHG) and a commanding red lipstick from The Body Shop. A cool girl needs to cool down, too. For that, the belif (THEFACESHOP) Aqua bomb sleeping mask is a must.
The Chill Beach Bum
For your favourite outdoorsy person, gifts that will come in handy for her many, many trips to the beach. Support her sunny day strolls through an on-point OOTD composed of a fun sundress from MDS, trusty sandals from Bata and a broad-brimmed straw hat from Helen — carefully placed over her perfectly tousled hair with the help of The Body Shop’s comb — to top it off. Help her make sure to keep sunburn at bay with The Body Shop’s sunscreen and keep the glow on her face with a highlighter from innisfree.
The Classy Gentleman
Don’t forget the gent! For the sleek and suave on your list, essentials that are just as stylish as him. Look out for his grooming needs with The Body Shop’s moisturiser and a Whisky Soap from Scottish Fine Soaps (BHG). Add to his already stellar style picks with a reliable but stylish handkerchief from Goldlion (BHG), a classic wallet, a sleek tie and a staple belt from Pierre Cardin (BHG). Seal the deal with a sophisticated pair of leather shoes from Bata.
