Valentine’s Day is the time where you can show how much you love and appreciate the people in your life, through spoken or written words and delightful gifts. If you’re on a tight budget, there are plenty of wonderful gifts that are affordable and stylish which you can find easily in Singapore. Check out these 10 great beauty gift ideas for friends or colleagues to give this Valentine’s Day, without making you go bankrupt:
- Natural Lip Balm
For your friends or colleagues who are into handmade and all-natural products, a natural lip balm would surely delight them. If possible, find the one that’s vegan-friendly and that suits all skin types, is made from nourishing ingredients; such as vitamin E, olive oil, avocado, cocoa or shea butter, almond oil, fruit extracts, or coconut oil.
- Scented Candles In Glass Jars
Your co-workers would definitely appreciate a scented candle that would sooth and relax them after a long hard day at work. Find the one that has your co-worker’s favorite scent, and comes in a glass jar so that she/he can reuse it for décor purposes.
- Beauty Bag
Gift your BFF and co-workers a beauty bag to stash all of their makeup and beauty goodies. Get the canvas ones with printed heart patterns all over it, to show much you love them.
- Beauty Gift Card
If you have no time to find a particular gift, or would rather have your besties and colleagues find their own favorite beauty products, then a beauty gift card would do the trick. You can choose how much you’d like to top-up the card, from $10 to $500 (different beauty stores have different amount of credit top-up).
- Hand Cream Gift Set
Being stuck in the office for hours with cold air-conditioning would dry up your skin fast. Gift your co-workers a hand cream gift set that serves as a moisturizer, so they won’t end up with shriveled-looking hands with visible lines (and in some cases, veins). Get the ones made from natural and nourishing ingredients. Hand creams in Singapore can be bought online, if you have no time to run to the store.
- UV Protection Moisturizer
Living in a tropical country like Singapore where the sun is strong requires an extra skin protection. UV rays are especially harmful to both your health and skin, so it’s wise to wear a UV protection moisturizer. Get some for your friends and colleagues to show how much you care for their well-being.
- Quirky-Flavored Lip Balm
If your friends or co-workers are the goofy, playful types, you can gift them quirky flavored lip balms, such as beer, pizza, bacon, and candy cane flavored lip balm. This is guaranteed to crack them up (not the lips, though).
- Beauty Book
If your friends or colleagues need a little guidance in beauty, get them a beauty guidebook for a start. Get one that also looks good on display, so they can put it on their living room shelves or coffee table.
- Basic Makeup Kit
This gift is perfect for those who are not used to wearing makeup. A typical basic makeup kit contains foundation, eye shadow, eyeliner, blusher, and lipstick.
- Basic makeup brushes kit
Another useful products to complement the makeup kit are makeup brushes. Your friends and colleagues are better off using brushes for hygiene reasons.
To make the best of the gifts, try to find out what your friends and co-workers love and need the most. There’s no point in gifting something if the recipient doesn’t use it, which is a waste of your time and money. Some of the aforementioned gifts might be beneficial to your loved ones, so make sure that they truly need it, and not just love it.
