These Are the Only Beauty Gifts Worth Asking for, According to Byrdie Editors
Come December, everywhere from Mecca to Sephora and David Jones is packed with amazing new launches and limited edition beauty buys. There are luxury presents galore, and Kris Kringle gifts so major you'll want to keep them for yourself. (Seriously, the under $30 Christmas offering has come a long, long way.) But what do you nominate when asked, "What do you want from Santa?" If sifting through hundreds of gift options for others is stressful, doing it on your own behalf is possibly worse. (Option fatigue is REAL.) Happily, If you're having trouble compiling your own Christmas wish list, you've tapped on the right post. Ahead, the Byrdie Australia team shares their own personal Christmas wish lists in the hopes you spot a few things you'd also like to receive. (Also, so we can forward the link to our respective partners—we're no dummies.)

"If you've never sampled the deliciousness that is Laura Mercier's body souffles, you are missing out. From Almond Coconut Milk to Tarte au Citron (my fave—it smells like lemon meringue pie), these skin-softening creams are a little slice of everyday luxury."
Smythson Panama Textured-Leather Cosmetics Case ($385)
"True story: I was gifted a Smythson leather notebook eight years ago, but I have never used it as its gilded pages are just too perfect to spoil. This fuchsia cosmetics case, however, will not suffer the same fate—it’s perfect for keeping my beauty essentials organised."
