'Tis the Damn Season: Loose Magazine's 2022 Gift Guide

This festive season, Loose Magazine has compiled all of our top present picks — from fashionable tech accessories to beauty favourites, we've got a gift idea for everyone. Plus, they're all under £50!

Charlotte Tilbury

It seems like everything Charlotte Tilbury touches turns to gold — whether it be their Beauty Light Wands to their Pillow Talk lipsticks, the luxurious packaging makes this brand a perfect gift idea. And, if you know anyone wanting to dip their toe into Charlotte Tilbury, they have a great range of gift sets to choose from, starting from just £23.

A major beauty trend this year, a new blush could be the perfect gift idea. Rare Beauty’s iconic liquid blush will easily become a staple in their makeup collection. Or, take a look at Fenty Beauty’s blush collection, including Madison Beer-approved duo Ginger Binge and Moscow Mule.

We know, we know. This isn’t normally seen as a cheaper gift idea, but if you take advantage of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, you can find yourself a steal. Boots often have offers on favourite fragrances, such as YSL’s Black Opium and selected Marc Jacobs perfumes, but Sol de Janeiro are also a great option. Their body mists start from £19, and their scents pack a punch, lasting all day long.

Wildflower Cases

You don't have to compromise on style when it comes to a protective phone case. From the 'balletcore' obsessed to hopeful rockstar's girlfriend, Wildflower Cases has a phone case everyone will love. They've also released accessories, like phone charms and camera bling, to help you live out your y2k dreams.

Ear muffs

The past couple of years have seen a return to using headphones as accessories. Whilst last year, there was a resurgence of wired earphones, this year, it’s been all about the over-ear headphones. Perhaps AirPod Maxes helped bring them back, but a great way to appreciate this fashion trend in the colder months is to wear ear muffs instead. Whilst Ugg have a collection, most fashion stores will stock this accessory at a cheaper price — or even take a look in your local TKMaxx, where some Ugg ear muffs have been spotted for less.

And, of course, Christmas is not Christmas without a fabulous range of knitwear. Whether it be cheesy Christmas jumpers to bold cardigans, gift them a piece of knitwear that will help keep them warm all winter long. We love Ragged Priest’s range, which retails around £50 but is currently having a Black Friday sale. Or, why not have a look on reselling apps, to find them a cool vintage piece?

The festive season shouldn't be about the cost of gifts, but rather, the sentiment behind them. And with our gift guide, you'll be sure to find something that they will love.
