Left your gifting to the last minute? Read this.

Every year it’s the same: you promise yourself you’ll jump online and tick everyone off your list by December 1. You refuse to be that person who finds themselves cursing in the carpark on December 24 (no judgment, we’ve all been there).

Although we’re not quite at that point just yet, the big day is on the horizon – and if you’ve left it a bit late, may we suggest a treat from our edit of the best last-minute presents below. Happy gifting!

NARS Unwrapped Mini Eyeshadow Palette

Cute, compact and sure to impress: this mini palette from NARS contains six high-impact shades with high colour pay-off, including the universally flattering ‘Orgasm’ and bestselling ‘Dolce Vita’, in eyeshadow form. Wrapped up in limited-edition ribbon packaging, it’s the go-to gift for anyone who wears eyeshadow.

Drunk Elephant is the ultimate crowd pleaser, and this set offers the brand’s full night-time suite for them to try (and fall in love with).

Party season is well and truly upon us, and that means bold lips are on the cards (finally!). Nothing helps a bright, saturated lip colour go the distance like smooth, hydrated lips.
