Whether you’re a man looking for a gift for your special lady – good luck with that! – or a woman wanting to present your girlfriends with special holiday gifts, we’d love to help you with our round up of the best Christmas gifts available in Jakarta. Pssst, you might want to buy one for yourself too!
For the fashionable lady
Skirt from Love, Bonito
The Christmas vibe is strong on this Felda Floral Foldover Trumpet Skirt from Love, Bonito, featuring iconic Christmas-themed motifs of red flowers and green leaves. The midi skirt will become the perfect festive outfit for your girlfriend’s upcoming Christmas dinners and gatherings, and with that in every other girl’s mind, you better hurry and get it before it’s sold out!
To keep her warm
Cashmere scarf from Duma
The end of year is always about that warm Christmas feeling. If you’re looking for a gift for someone who’s going on a winter holiday, or a friend who always feels cold despite the hot Jakarta weather (we all know that one person!), this personalised Nala scarf from Duma is perfect to keep her warm. Another bonus is that you can get her initials embroidered on the scarf!
For the beauty enthusiast
Lip kit from NYX at Sephora
If your friend is a beauty geek, she’ll definitely love NYX’s limited-edition Lippie Countdown Advent Calendar! Available at Sephora as part of their new holiday collection, this lip kit will surprise her daily with 24 different lip shades as she counts down to Christmas on the 25th. There’s indeed no better time to pucker up with bold lip colours than the holiday season!
For the accessories lover
Festive charms from Pandora
What’s a better gift for your accessories-loving friend than a bracelet charm from Pandora? We might not have winter here in Indonesia, but you can still give her a little piece of white Christmas with the brand’s new collection of festive charms, ranging from Christmas tree and Santa Claus to snowflake and winter wonderland.
To give her the scent of Christmas
Christmas fragrance from Bath and Body Works
What smells a lot more like Christmas than the delicious scent of chestnuts, winter candy apple, cinnamon, and of course, snowflakes? Put your loved ones in a festive mood with Bath & Body Works’ soothing scent of Christmas, available in the form of candles and wallflowers home fragrance. To make it more festive, you can also get their Christmas-themed fragrance and candle holders and lids with choices of snowman, Christmas tree, penguins, or snowflakes as the ornaments.
To keep her skin flawless
Personalised body butter from Body Shop
Body butter is always handy whether we’re going abroad for a winter holiday where the air gets too dry, or staying in Jakarta where it’s always summer all year round. Either way, Body Shop’s body butter is a perfect gift for those who love taking care of their skin – and even more perfect for those who rarely do so! – and this holiday season you can even personalise the label with your friend’s name for free! All you’ve got to do is just one out of 12 flavours and one out of six designs that feature Christmas-themed lines like “Santa’s favourite flavour”, “You’re my Christmas star”, “Merry Kiss-mas”, “Happy holidays”, “Spread the joy”, and “You’re on the naughty list”.
