Christmas Gift Guide 2018 | Classic Christmas Gifts for all the women in your life

Whether I’m on the hunt for a Christmas pressie for my teenage cousin, my beauty-obsessed Sister-In-Law, my mom, or my Granny, I know that I can never go wrong with one of Revlon or Charlie’s luxe gift sets. 

In fact, I remember receiving a Charlie gift set every Christmas during my teenage years, and smelling that familiar Charlie Original scent always brings back so many happy memories. Most of the memories surrounding my highschool days (and primary schools days, for that matter!) involve long afternoons spent at the Irene Village Hall, doing countless plies, frappes, and pirouettes… followed by rowdy gossip sessions in the changerooms, scented with that distinctive La Pebra fragrance mingling with my Charlie Original deodorant. Aah, sweet memories!

That’s why, when I first received these fabulous gift sets to photograph, I immediately slipped on my beloved pointe shoes… and decided to include them in these photographs too! 

This year, the Revlon Charlie Original Eau De Toilette Gift Set (R248 at Clicks – here) contains not only a Charlie Original perfumed body spray and a 50ml EDT, but it also includes a stunning beaded choker.

If you’re in the mood for something a bit more playful, then Revlon Pink Happiness Pamper Pack (R215 at Clicks – here), which includes a perfumed body lotion, a perfumed body spray, and a 30ml EDT – is perfect. Pink Happiness is a vibrant, sparkling floral scent that’s great for the younger members of your family, or simply for every day wear – especially during the summer. It’s one of my personal favourites, and never fails to bring in the compliments – even when I’m wearing just the perfumed body spray. People can never quite believe that it isn’t some fancy fragrance! 

Another gorgeous gift set, the Revlon Love Her Madly Pamper Pack (R250 at Clicks – here) also contains a perfumed body lotion, perfumed body spray, and 30ml EDT. This is easily my favourite Revlon scent at the moment – it’s feminine and incredibly sexy, without being too over-the-top.

For evenings out or when I need a little extra pamper, I like layering this fragrance: I’ll apply the body lotion all over, then spray the perfumed body spray onto my bare skin before spritzing the EDT into the air in front of me and stepping into the mist so it settles onto my skin, my hair, and my clothing. Doing this ensures that the fragrance lasts all day long.

One scent that will forever remind me of my late Ouma is Revlon’s Fire & Ice. As such, I can never quite resist slipping the Fire & Ice Classic perfumed body spray into my shopping trolley, and I’ve started wearing it quite regularly since she passed away in 2013. It’s a great way to feel closer to her, so you can bet that I’ll be holding on to the Revlon Fire & Ice Original Pamper Pack (R215 at Clicks – here) for myself! 

One gift set that I’m particularly excited about this Christmas (and that I’m pretty sure most women would love to find under their Christmas tree!) is this exquisite Revlon Unforgettable Gift Set, which contains a perfumed body spray, an EDT spray, and a stunning rose gold watch – for just R335! (Available at Clicks, here). The watch is absolutely gorgeous and so on-trend at the moment, and I can’t quite get over the value of this set! 

Most of these items feature Clicks’ purple pressie sticker, which means that they form part of the 3-for-2 offer. So, if you buy three gifts sets, you’ll get the cheapest one free! You can shop them instore at your nearest Clicks store, or online by clicking here
