Mom, aunt or older sister? This one’s packed with all the face- and neck-care essentials for those aged 50-plus: Super Restorative Day Cream replenishes the skin, Super Restorative Night Cream replenishes it again at night for an even complexion, and Super Restorative Décolleté and Neck Concentrate rounds it off with a visible lifting effect.

2. Crabtree & Evelyn Pomegranate & Argan Oil Nourishing Treats (R700)
You’re not going to want to share this gift set! One of the most frustrating things about getting away for the holidays is travelling – hello dry skin. Pamper yourself (or your faves) with this luxurious indulgence. The Pomegranate Shower Gel Bauble is richly scented, the Hand Therapy cream nourishes skin so it’s noticeably smoother after each use, and the highly moisturising Body Cream leaves a silky, velvety after-feel. Available at Crabree & Evelyn London.
3. Spalicious Limited Edition Litchi & Rose Splash (R630)
After that at-home spa feeling? This standout gift set contains an exfoliating scrub of walnut shell powder and poppy seeds, which gently removes dead and dry skin cells. The shower gel, a creamy body wash containing coconut oil and shea butter, softens and conditions, while the body butter hydrates, nourishes and protects the skin, leaving it feeling silky-soft. Last, but not least, there’s the “Smoothie”, a moisturising body milk with a light and velvety texture – ideal for summer holidays! Available at Spalicous Near You.
4. Stila Stay All Day Warm & Fuzzy Liquid Lipstick Set (R340)
Wrap your lips up with these totally luxe, long-lasting, creamy lip colours. It’s impossible to go wrong with this gift set – each colour is bound to be somebody’s favourite. Available at Woolworths.
5. Hugo Boss Bottled Gift Set (R1 260)
Perfect for the guy with a bit of an edge – think of Hugo Boss’s current brand ambassador Chris “if-you-were-not-married, we’d-have-your-babies” Hemsworth… The scent? Initially fresh and fruity, but balanced with warm, flowery middle notes dominated by geraniums and a dab of clove. And don’t let’s forget the masculine base notes: sandalwood, cedar wood and vetiver. This gift set comes with the EDT fragrance, a scented aftershave lotion and a shower gel. Available at Clicks.
