It’s the gifting time of year, and sometimes it can be tricky coming up with just what to get people - especially people we might not know so well, like teachers or acquaintances or a workplace Kris Kringle. We thought we would put together a little guide for you of our top 5 picks and why we love them.
Raspberry Hand Cream.
With its delightful scent (it literally smells good enough to eat!) and ultra-moisturising, rapidly absorbing, non-greasy formula, this little jar of happiness for hands is our top pick.
So much more than just a moisturiser, this rich cream offers anti-aging benefits, will improve the elasticity of the skin, balances moisture, and leaves the skin nourished and protected. Did you know that Raspberry Seed Oil has sun protection properties? It has the ability to absorb harmful UV rays which will protect the skin on the hands.
The 50ml jar is the perfect size to keep in a handbag or tote for convenient application throughout the day. As with all our products, a little goes a long way, so this jar of hand-loving goodness will be sure to last a few months.
And there are so many perfect one-liners to put on the gift tag for this one:
- Hands down, you are the best around.
- I am grateful for the hands that have guided me this year.
- Thank you for your helping hands.
Pocket Tote bag.
Know someone who doesn’t travel light? Our Pocket Tote Bag would be perfect for teachers, parents, or anyone who loves to multi-task.
Whether it's laptops, notepads and stationery, or snacks, nappies and drink bottles, this bag will fit it all and then some. Gym bag, beach bag, work bag, swimming bag, picnic bag, lunch bag.. you name it and this bag will be it.
Featuring a large compartment big enough for a laptop (or a carton of milk and eggs) it also has 4 medium-sized internal pockets, conveniently sized to house drink bottles upright, phones, keys sunglasses etc. No more having to dig around in your bag for ages trying to find the keys!
Constructed from a thick and durable high quality canvas, this tote provides both practicality and comfort. It’s pretty much the next best thing to gifting someone an extra pair of hands! Our totes have been lovingly handmade to last, so this gift will withstand years of use.
You know how the saying goes: a mask a week keeps your skin at its peak! (Ok, so maybe I improvised a bit there) But it certainly is true. Face masks are one of those products that are suitable and beneficial for all ages, stages and skin conditions. Young skin, mature skin, acne-prone skin, dry skin and everything in between - all can benefit immensely from a weekly pamper session. And what better way than in the comfort of one's own home?
We have two types of masks to choose from, our deep cleansing Turmeric Charcoal Mask and our anti-aging moisture boosting Collagen Honey Mask. They can be purchased individually, or if you are not sure which to choose, why not get both by purchasing our Mask Obsession Set? When you purchase this duo of masks it includes a Walnut Konjac Sponge and a Bamboo Brush. Both tools are the perfect accompaniment to not just a pamper session, but to a daily cleansing routine as well.
Our Turmeric Charcoal Mask is basically an intensive deep clean for your skin. It will draw out impurities, unclog and tighten pores, gently exfoliate, heal and rejuvenate the skin, revealing a healthy glow.
The Collagen Honey Mask is the ultimate indulgence in skin care. Did you know that the collagen production of our skin starts slowing down from the early to mid 20’s? A weekly collagen mask will give your skin the boost it needs to help minimise the appearance of existing wrinkles and fine lines, as well as slow down the emergence of new ones. Essentially, it plumps and firms your skin deep down to its core - some might call it Botox without the needle and the neurotoxin.
Give the gift of self-care along with a witty little note:
- I cannot mask my appreciation for you.
- Let’s face it, you’re awesome.
This might surprise you (it certainly surprised us) but research from Edith Cowen University in WA revealed that an overwhelming 72% of women love to receive lipstick as a gift. And the reason for it is simple: lipstick is one of those products that women love to try new shades and new formulas of. Many of us here at Melvory love to have a selection of lipsticks in our handbags, drawers, and gloveboxes.
Lipstick is that piece of makeup that instantly makes your face look alive, and helps you feel put together. Lip colour shades that are neutral, such as our Lychee, Coconut and Peach are particularly good choices, as they will suit most complexions and provide the perfect no-makeup look.
More than half of the women researched preferred lipstick that is plant based and nutrient rich, without all the nasty chemicals. Our range ticks all of these boxes and more! It's not just lipstick, it also functions as a lip conditioner (thankyou Jojoba Oil and Vitamin E) which will keep your lips smooth, soft and full of moisture. Available in 5 fruit inspired shades, you can see the selection here.
Gift Card.Still not sure about which product to purchase? A Melvory gift card will save the day, allowing you to leave the choice up to the recipient. We have a handy skin quiz available on our website which is a great place for someone to start if they are unsure what products they should try. A gift card is almost like a double gift - you are giving them not just a gift, but also the freedom to do some shopping themselves for something they really want. Who doesn’t enjoy indulging in some shopping for themselves?
Some people shy away from giving gift cards because they worry it may be impersonal, but we think the opposite! Purchasing a Melvory Gift Card for someone who you know values natural organic quality skincare, shows that you have put plenty of thought into it.
Gift cards are perfect, because they come with the personalisation of having chosen a store that you know they will like, coupled with the flexibility of being able to choose exactly what they want. Our gift cards range in value from $25 to $200.
We hope that this little guide has given you some inspiration and ideas, for this season, or any gifting time.
