Kiana Beauty Christmas Guide 2021 - Co-owner Stav's Top Picks

I'm Stav, co-founder of Kiana Beauty Melbourne, mum to 3 amazing boys, partner, pharmacist and many other things. 

In the spirit of full disclosure, I love the holiday season. It sprinkles hope, peace and wonder, which I and the rest of the world desperately need right now.

This year, more than ever, I am embracing the magic of the holiday season. While Christmas may still look a little different for all of us, it will still be the light that shines so brightly following the darkness of COVID and extended lockdowns. 

In 2021, I have never been more grateful for the people that I have in my 'village'. Here is my selection of top Christmas gifts 2021 that I'm going to give to the people that I cherish.

Christmas Gift Ideas for MEN


Gifts for HIM: My Husband

This elegant fragrance is inspired by living a modern and meaningful life and beautifully suits my husband's personality and values.

Released in 2021, it is a brand new fragrance for Bottega Veneta. It opens with effervescent notes of orange, lemon and bergamot which instantly remind me of a wonderful trip to Italy we had in 2019. As this aftershave develops, the zesty notes give way to sensuous woody notes and delicious vanilla.

The notes in this aftershave are simple and minimal, yet the composition is exquisite and luxurious.

Bottega Veneta Illusione Bois Nu For Him Eau de Toilette, $115

Gifts for HIM: My Dad

This fragrance is vibrant, original and a classic, just like my dad.

It is a refined scent which captures the beauty and power of nature. I would describe it as a modern-classic. It has timeless appeal.

Zesty notes of mandarin and bergamot appear first, before revealing a fresh lavender heart. As the fragrance evolves, woody notes emerge which leave a sophisticated trail. The notes in this scent connects me to the outdoors, which is my favourite way to spend time with my dad.

Trussardi My Land Eau de Toilette Spray, $130

Gifts for HIM: My Father-in-Law

My father-in-law had to pivot this year. He went from being a retiree, to becoming our dog-walker and developing new IT skills in order to remain connected. 

I love his ability to go-with-the-flow, which is why I'm choosing this new 2021 release from Ralph Lauren.

Fresh, powerful notes of lavandin and clary sage come together with warm and rich notes of cedar and vetiver. The result is a striking balance between elegance and candour.

Ralph Lauren Ralph's Club Eau de Parfum, from $130

Gifts for Him: My Brother-in-Law

My brother-in-law is a new father, and suffice to say, the sleepless nights are showing on his face.

Although we can't give him the gift of sleep, we can give him great looking skin.

This skin care gift set for him contains:

  • Face wash for a deep-pore clean
  • Face scrub to smooth and de-flake the skin for a close shave
  • Men's moisturiser to boost hydration and balance the skin
  • Men's eye gel to hydrate under the eyes

Clinique For Men Great Skin For Him Gift Set, $90

Christmas Gift Ideas for WOMEN

Gifts for HER: My Mother

This iconic floral fragrance is finely crafted and radiant, just like my mum.

It reminds me of a stunning bouquet of the most beautiful flowers. Soft notes of jasmine mingle with exotic tuberose and rose leaving an elegant trail. This scent commands your attention without being overpowering.

My mum will enjoy wearing this fragrance casually during the day as well as layering it up with J'Adore body milk at night.

Dior J'adore Eau de Parfum, from $104

Gifts for HER: My Mother-in-Law

My mother-in-law is a homebody and takes great pleasure in decorating her home during the festive season. 

I know she will love this limited edition Glasshouse Christmas candle. I'm choosing the White Christmas scented candle as the cedar and clove notes will add a rich, warm ambience to her home.

The limited edition Christmas liquidless diffuser will look stylish on her entranceway table and creates a lovely welcome into her home.

Gifts for HER: My sister

My sister will love this floral-fruity perfume. The bottle is fun and will look sophisticated on her dresser.

This fragrance is the perfect antidote to 2020 and 2021. Sparkling signature notes of blackberry and pear create an ethereal charm while white creamy woods bring an elegance that lingers.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Forever perfume, $79.99

Gifts for HER: My sister-in-law

As a new mum, my sister-in-law is exhausted. I'm choosing this Marc Jacobs Daisy 100ml EDT for her as it has uplifting superpowers.

It opens with a sparkle of sweet strawberries mixed with green violet leaf and pink grapefruit before the floral heart emerges. Warm woods and musk keep things grounded and enchanting.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau de Toilette, $99 for 100mL

Christmas Gift Ideas for My BEST FRIEND

After being in lockdown for so long, my bestie is really looking forward to welcoming people into her home again.

She is a keen entertainer and I know that she'll love creating a little vignette on her sideboard with this stylish jasmine candle and reed diffuser gift set.

It will add a soft and gentle ambience to her home with romantic notes of clover, jasmine and frangipani. Handmade in Melbourne, these candles are made from high quality fragrance oils and lead-free cotton wicks.

Both the candle and diffuser are full-sized, which makes this gift set excellent value for money.

CIRCA Jasmine & Magnolia Candle & Diffuser Gift Set, $89.95

Christmas Gift Ideas for TEENS

Gifts for: Teenage Girls (my niece)

My niece is beautiful inside and out, but at 14 she is starting to experiment with makeup.

I think she will love this vegan makeup kit as it contains all the essentials for a cool eye makeup look, while being 100% naturally derived, certified vegan, cruelty free and halal.

  • Loose mineral eyeshadow in copper crush
  • Vegan blending brush
  • Certified organic eye pencil
  • Curvy lash vegan black mascara

INIKA Floral Fantasy Set, $79

Gifts for: Teenage Boys (my nephew)

My nephew is pretty cool. He's articulate, confident and starting to become more aware of himself.

He is enjoying his new-found freedom post lockdown by catching up with his friends. I know he will love this brand new, 2021 Calvin Klein fragrance.  It has gorgeous refreshing notes of bergamot and mandarin, which give way to a glowing, warm base of amber and musk.

An eau de toilette is great for his age as it won't overpower others around him.

Calvin Klein Defy Eau de Toilette, from $69

Christmas Present Ideas for Teacher Gifts

Boy were teachers amazing this year with their continued enthusiasm and patience during remote learning. As a parent of school aged children, I've got a huge amount of respect for teachers, particularly the ones in Victoria and NSW.

These are my picks for teacher gifts. I'm buying for the children's class teachers, which includes male teacher gifts, the art teacher, music teacher as well as gifts for male principal.

Gift Ideas for My Neighbours

I have the best neighbours! I want them to know how grateful I am for the texts they regularly sent during lockdown to check how we were all doing. I'm gifting them this to help them create a festive ambience at home with this sparkling, decadent CIRCA Raspberry & Rhubarb Soy Candle, $44.95

Made in Australia, cruelty-free, and free of parabens and PEGs.

Christmas Gift Ideas for Secret Santa

Secret Santa gifts are the hardest to buy because they're usually for someone that I don't know too well or they have a low price range to buy under.

These are the Secret Santa gifts that I'll be buying this year, and also secretly hope to receive myself, rather than a box of chocolates.

Mavala Mini Color Nail Polish London, $8.95

Gift for Myself!

This year, I'm buying myself a gift too. It's partly a teacher's gift to myself for getting through remote learning with a preppie. Miraculously, he has learnt to read and write. But jokes aside, I'm looking forward to wearing a fabulous red lipstick as we emerge from lockdown and start socialising again.

I'm choosing the Estee Lauder Raspberry Reds Gift Set for myself as it contains my absolute favourite shade of red, Carnal, along with a lip pencil and lip shine.

Our Christmas gifts for 2021 tick all the boxes. We have a great selection of gifts for her and gifts for men.
