8 Christmas presents to treat yourself to in 2021


Ok mama, you’ve sorted out everyone else’s Christmas gifts, (and if you haven’t, check out our gift guides for 0-6 months, 6-12 months, and toddlers) now it’s time to make sure you have a few presents of your own under the tree. We’re not saying you should be gift wrapping them yourself, but it’s safe to say you have more chance of getting something you actually want if you do the choosing yourself.

2021 has been chaotic, to put it mildly. So if you’re feeling a bit burned out and in need of some R+R, this is the list for you. Let’s go.

FOREO Luna Play Plus 2 Cleansing Device

If you’re looking to level up your skincare game, why not add a little tech?

Made from soft, bacteria-resistant silicone, The Luna Play Plus 2 cleansing device promises to remove up to 99.5% of dirt, oil, sweat and makeup residue, and enhance the absorption of your skincare products. It’s also adorably small and compact, making it perfect for travel.

Slip Silk Envelope Pillowcase

Is there anything more luxe than sleeping on silk? 

On the off chance you actually get several hours of consecutive sleep (akak living the dream!), make the most of it by resting that tired noggin of yours on a silk pillowcase. The boasted benefits include helping your skin retain its moisture and keeping your exxy skincare products where they belong (on your face and not your pillow), as well as reducing friction on your face which can cause creases and eventually wrinkles.

Go-To Skincare Transformazing Face Sheet Masks

We love Go-To at Mumli HQ and while you can’t go wrong with any product Zoe Foster Blake whips up, the serum-drenched Transformazing sheet masks are a must-buy for party season (unless you hate glowy, hydrated, dewy skin of course, then definitely don’t buy these).

This limited edition megabox comes with three free masks, which leaves you with the awkward decision of whether to share these skin savers with your mom friends, or keep the lot for yourself (we won’t tell).

Uncommon Gifts Shower Steamers Gift Set

If you’re dying for a spa day but unable to wrangle an entire day to yourself, these pretty little cubes can help you set up an aromatherapy steam in your own shower. They contain all natural essential oils and release soothing scents like lemongrass and lavender. Divine! 

Hit your partner up for a back rub afterward and your DIY spa experience is complete.

Bed Threads French Flax Linen Classic Robe

Made from, you guessed it, 100 per cent French flax linen, this robe is soft as hell. You’ll never want to take it off, and it’s stylish enough that you won’t have to.

The best part? Linen gets softer with every single wash. It’s practically an investment piece.
