The arrival of the holiday season is often marked by long and lovely summer days, revisiting traditions, and of course, giving (and receiving) the perfect presents.

This year feels particularly brighter as many of us are FINALLY being reunited with loved ones, so it’s fitting to ensure that your presents sparkle a little extra too.

But before you can savour the pleasure of unwrapping your own gifts, it’s time to get a headstart on shopping for others.

Whether you’re buying for your Beauty Buff bestie or your gadget-obsessed dad, this shopping guide will keep you in step with the spirit of gift-giving.

Here are some of the best gifts to shop now and wrap later:

M block 1

The leading women in your life - from your best friend to your colleague-turned-work-wife to your sister - deserve something extraordinary.

Think cult favourite beauty buys, showstopping accessories, uplifting fragrances, cute and comfy loungewear essentials, and more gifts that are just as unique as she is.

M block 2

From the husband who insists that he’s quite happy with nothing at all to the son who completely blanked and forgot to send you his wishlist, men can sometimes be the most difficult ones to shop for.

But don’t worry - we’ve covered all the bases when it comes to finding the perfect present. From outdoorsy trinkets to the next must-have sneakers, you'll know the gift when you see it.

Chances are the thing your mom, dad, grandparents, or caregiver wants most this year are in-person hugs and kisses, but that doesn’t mean material gifts will be refused.

Presents of the self-care variety are always appreciated, such as super-comfy robes and PJs to elevate their morning routines, a pretty throw to snuggle up in, cool kitchen gadgets to help whip up hearty meals (for you to enjoy), or their signature scent. Or why not raise the bar with luxury wine glasses and accessories?
