Whether you’re part of the groom’s or the bride’s entourage, we believe they both deserve stellar gifts. However, finding the perfect present might be a bit difficult if their personalities are poles apart. One thing is for certain though - they both need grooming and beauty products. So here are some essential and really awesome beauty gifts that are ideal for any newlywed couple.
Engraved shaving kit
On the surface, this gift might seem like it’s just for the groom, but if you look closer you’ll know that they both will love it. The Bombay Shaving Company engraved initials on their razors, to personalize them. We think it’s a fab idea to engrave, not his, but her initials on his razor. It’s the perfect gift for the groom who travels a lot – his razors can be a little daily reminder of his beloved.
Get your massage on
Every good husband knows how to give a great massage, and if they don’t, this gift is the perfect hint, that he’d better learn! This body massage oil smells divine and is the perfect blend of pure essential oils of ylang ylang, lemon, basil, jojoba, sesame and sunflower. A massage with this one will be so relaxing and good for your skin too!
A good beauty travel kit is essential, especially if they’re running off for the honeymoon right after the wedding. This kit has all the basics - shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, soap, hand and body cream - and all of them in convenient space saving sizes. Dalan D’olive is known for natural, organic and dermatologically tested products, making it a great unisex and quality gift!
Finding a shower set that isn’t overly girly or crazy masculine is really hard since beauty is marketed by targeting gender clichés. However, a classic shower gift set from The Body Shop never goes out of style. We like the Fuji Green Tea set, as the aromas are gender neutral, but still superb, not to forget cruelty-free too.
Quirky masks, anyone?
If you’re the fun, quirky friend then why not give them both something they can enjoy together and have fun doing. We’re talking about the super cute and Insta-worthy animal facial masks. There are 4 pairs (8 in total), one for each of them to try on and take silly selfies with!
A scent so sweet
If you know a couple, who plays by their own rules and doesn’t stick to the norm, then this gift is ideal. We’re talking about a unisex gift set that they both can enjoy. This perfume and moisturizer set by Calvin Klein is unisex and smells divine.
A little vacay
If you really want to splurge on your bestie and her beau, book them a room at a relaxing resort. There they can not only enjoy a moment of peace right after the wedding, but also indulge in the hotel’s spa services including facials and massages. Pricey but worth it, and who doesn’t want to be known as the best friend… ever!
A beauty bag is a must
Every couple needs a beauty travel bag, to pack up all their toiletries and travel to romantic destinations. Which is why we think this is a great gift for the newlywed who loves to travel. Don’t just give them the bag though, fill it with their favourite products, or slip in some honeymoon essentials to make it a little naughty! You get the drift? *Wink*
Au naturale soaps
This beautifully packaged soap box set is not only pretty to look at but also effective and high quality. Both the bride and the groom can use these soaps, making it a great gift for any couple. Each of the three soaps has their own unique properties from brightening and cleansing to purifying and even anti-aging!
Miniature perfumes for the win
A selection of perfumes for both him and her, this box set by Bvlgari will be a hit, no matter what perfume preferences they may have. The Omnia and Aqva miniatures are small enough that they make the perfect size for travel kits and for briefcases or handbags.
For that newlywed glow
Apart from the beautiful packaging, this gift set from Forest Essentials has something for everyone. Whether they need a sunscreen or lip balm, facial cleaners or fruit scrub, it has everything they need to stock up a new master bathroom.
Give the couple the feeling of being by the ocean or at least a little nautical vibe for the bathroom with this gift set from Nyassa. The set includes the bath essentials, which is ideal for a tub-bath loving bride.
Time to rejuvenate
This Verbena bath collection set, smells wonderful and has a romantic vibe to it - perfect for newlyweds. L’Occitane is known for its premium products that nourish and pamper your skin. Perfect for the newlywed who has just gone through months of wedding planning stress and running around!
For the love of all things herbal
For the couple who loves organic beauty products, this box set from Khadi is a great fit. Their products are free from SLS and parabens. For those with multiple allergies or with sensitive skin, this gift will go a long way.
This set by Kama Ayurveda has something for the hair, body and face – it is an overall kit that takes care of you from head to toe. Even if they don’t use it themselves, a newlywed couple who is doing up their house could use this gift for their guest bathroom!
Take your pick, and give your married friends the best beauty gifts ever!
