Holiday shopping can be overwhelming because you want to think of something really thoughtful for everyone on your list. So if you have someone with a bit of a hair obsession to buy for, then you are sure to find something for them in our hair lover’s gift guide.
By hair obsession, we mean someone who is adventurous with their hair. Like, they are always trying a new style, styling tool, colour or hair product. Or you could also use this hair lover’s gift guide for someone who you know struggles to get their hair to look good every day. A new hot tool or product might help them achieve their hair goals a little easier.
Now, the items we’ve chosen can be gifted on their own, bundled into gift baskets, or can be used as stocking stuffers. Yes, there are some big-ticket items on the list, but we’ve covered many price points.
The Hair Lover’s Gift Guide 2021
The Dyson Airwrap™ styler: This is a big-ticket item, but it is two gifts in one. The Airwrap comes with two 30mm Airwrap barrels, two 40mm Airwrap barrels, a firm smoothing brush, a soft smoothing brush, a round volumizing brush, and a pre-styling dryer. With this product, you can actually have a salon-quality blowout at home and or achieve a great easy curl/ wave. This product replaces a lot of hot tools. Also, it is lightweight and it cuts down on styling time significantly. We love this product so much it made the list of the 2 hair styling products to help you look great in quarantine.
Snap Hair Bun: Snap hair buns tend to come in sets, some with various colours: a black one, a darker brown/black, and a brown/auburn. You can wear any colour as your hair covers it so the colour is not an issue. This is an easy bun that will have anyone looking polished and professional without bobby pins. We included the snap hair bun, in 4 of my favourite beauty products, February 2021. Overall this would be a great stocking stuffer.
T3 LUCEA ID Straightener: This is another larger ticket item, but wow, is it worth the price. I have tried a lot of different straighteners, and this is my favourite by far. The T3 Lucea ID heats quickly, and you can adjust it to your hair type. I don’t have to fry my hair by having it at the highest temperature to get my hair straight. We love this product so much, that it was one of our favourite beauty products- in the November 2021 edition
T3 LUCEA ID Straightener Gift Bundle Idea: Pair with a heat protector spray and/or clips for sectioning, for that very special person, on your list.
Slip Skinny Scrunchies Twilight Bauble: Slip Scrunchies are fantastic. They truly do not leave a dent in your hair. These Slip scrunchies are everything, and best of all, if you need to tie your hair up you don’t ruin your blowout. Again this is a great stocking stuffer, mini-gift, or very cute to add to a gift card.
MOROCCANOIL® Everyday Escape Full-Size Set: This set has a shower gel and hair treatment, and is a luxurious gift that won’t break the bank. Help your loved ones, fight frizz and have soft, smooth hair with this awesome gift set.
Invisibobble Holiday Candy Cane: Another great hair tie type is the coil hair tie. These are more secure than the Slip ones, but can leave a slight bend if you tie them too tightly (you’ve been warned), in your hair. This set gives you 10 hair ties in a festive decoration- so you don’t really need to wrap this gift, which makes it slightly greener. No one ever has enough hair ties, so this is the perfect gift for the person who is always tying their hair up, and can never find a hair tie.
Satin Sleep Set by KITSCH: A silk pillowcase has many benefits (we previously wrote about the 4 benefits of silk (or satin) pillowcases). Overall, a satin pillowcase can help keep hair from getting frizzy and oily, at night. There are skin benefits as well. Also, this set comes with a cute matching sleep mask. Give someone the gift of a great night’s sleep, and it has its beauty benefits.
Nick Chavez Advanced Volume Bundle: A great set of shampoo and conditioner is a fantastic gift. We all need to change up our usual products to help maximize their effectiveness. Also, a gift like this can help open a friend up to a new product or brand. This particular set is incredible and it comes with Advanced Volume Shampoo & Conditioner, Advanced Volume Hairspray, and Advanced Volume Mist. This brand has been a favourite of ours for awhile, as it was included in 5 of my current beauty favourites- January 2021, and was one of our top 5 favourite beauty brands from The Shopping Channel.
Hair Coloring Dyeing Kit, Hair Coloring tools: Dyeing hair at home has become a way of life for people who haven’t returned to their hair salons- we even shared tips for dyeing hair at home. This is a handy kit that includes mixing bowls, brushes for mixing, ear caps, clips, and a mixing tool. By giving this thoughtful kit, you are giving them the best at-home hair dyeing experience.
Woner Cordless Rechargeable Clippers: This set has everything- it gives you clippers, guards, a comb, and scissors. These clippers were featured in 2 hair styling products to help you look great throughout quarantine. However, this isn’t just a set if someone can’t make it to the barber or salon. These clippers are also multipurpose, as they can be used on facial hair, plus proper haircutting scissors are always handy to have at home.
Woner Cordless Rechargeable Clippers Gift Bundle Idea: Pair the clippers with a hair-cutting cape to help with cleanup.
Bonus gift idea: Pair a smaller gift with a gift card to a local salon or spa. This not only gives the recipient a little pampering, but it is a great way to support a local business that might need new customers, due to the pandemic.
We hope our hair lover’s gift guide helps you find the perfect gift. We have created a series of gift guides this holiday season to help take the guesswork out of what to buy. Check out our other gift guides if you are interested:
It’s all about minimizing holiday stress and staying on top of your gift giving is a big part of that. There are now holiday apps to get your gift shopping organized and keep you on budget, and even holiday apps to get you in the holiday spirit. This leaves you more time to enjoy holiday baking, decorating, watching fluffy Christmas movies (which we all secretly love), or playing Hallmark Christmas Movie Bingo (with a free printable bingo card) – a fan favourite!
