Secret Santa gift guide - Christmas gifts under $30!

Only a month to go until the best time of the year! Christmas is such a festive time in our household. Everything from Christmas ham and alfresco BBQs to themed floor mats and cutlery. There’s something about having the family together on Christmas day when there’s nothing by positive energy and love in the air. 

I’m usually on top of all my Christmas shopping 2-3 months in advance but this year, Christmas came around out of nowhere - I’m absolutely not prepared for gift giving and the multiple secret santa events I have planned. 

2021 went by in a blink of an eye and I know I’m not the only one who feels this way, so I’ve gathered a bunch of gifts under $30 that would be PERFECT for all your secret santa gift giving. And you can’t go wrong with make up or skincare gifts. 

  1. ROMAND Zero Velvet Tint #Autumn Knit Series $21
    A smooth, highly pigmented matte lip tint for any occasion. My favourite is the Villain Vest shade - a deep rose colour perfect for the festive season. 
  2. Nature Republic Aloe Vera 90% Toner $15
    For essential skincare gifting, this aloe vera toner is one for the warmer season. The non-greasy, cooling formula will definitely be of good use for whoever you may be gifting this Christmas. 
  3. Dr Jart + Ceramidin Lipair $16
    Dr Jart is a household name in Kbeauty and you’ll be sure to impress someone at Christmas with this cute lip balm in a easy to wrap case. Unlike other sticky lip balms, this feels more like a lotion for your lips and super hydrating. Nobody likes cracked lips in Christmas selfies.
  4. Etude House Oh M'Eye Line (Black,Brown) $8
    Smudge proof, liquid eyeliner with a super fine tip for the perfect wing or slight natural extension. It also comes in this super cute bottle you’d want to keep on display. It’s only $8 so can mix and match this product - perhaps pair it with the ROMAND velvet tint for a cute eye/lip set. 
  5. PERIPERA Ink Airy Velvet Tint $16 (on sale as part of Black Friday!!)
    Also a great matte tint option is this one from Peripera. Super cute packaging and small enough to fit in any bag. I love this product because it comes in SO MANY shades! My favourites are the Selfie Orange Brown and the Cartoon Coral. 
  6. Etude House Dear Darling Water Gel Tint $8
    The best thing about this is that you can really woo someone with multiple colours - get three shades and still be under budget!
  7. Too Cool For School Artclass by Rodin shading master $29
    Where else can you get a complete three shade, shading palette for under $30? The Rodin shading master has three shades that can also be easily blended. It also comes in two colour variations, the classic (warmer) and modern (cooler).
  8. ROMAND Juicy Lasting Tint $21
    Have reviewed this one before, and definitely in my basket for secret santa. Nucadamia is my favourite shade and the scent is to die for. It suits any make up look, from street to Saturday date night.

As I frantically get ready for Christmas, I hope everyone is more prepared than I am and enjoying the BFCM deals out there. Make sure you check these great gifts out!
