Christmas memories from childhood generally revolve around receiving gifts – new toys and games to be discovered and enjoyed. But as you get older, you quickly find a new joy in seeing the delight on someone else’s face when you give Christmas gifts to friends and family.
However, if you have a lot of gifts to buy ahead of Christmas, there is a danger that it can start to feel like a chore. Deciding on multiple different Christmas gift ideas for friends of varying tastes can be tiring. So instead, why not find a brand that you love and gift the people you love something you can rely on for quality and craftsmanship.
As the world’s oldest brush makers, Kent Brushes brings unparalleled industry knowledge to the design of all of our products. So you can trust that any item from our range will serve well as a thoughtful, luxury gift for friends.
Below we have selected a range of options that make excellent Christmas gifts for friends.
A Gift for Her
Looking for something pretty and feminine? Here are a few options to treat your female friends this year.
Our floral paddle brush will add some decoration to her dressing table. This is a large brush designed for medium to long hair, so it can handle plenty of use. And any girl with long hair will appreciate a go-to brush that they feel great about using every time they pick it up. It’s ideal for everyday use, helping to straighten and style hair.
Alternatively, if your friend prefers a bit of glitz, a cute gold or rose gold pebble brush is a fun addition to a grooming gift set. It’s perfect for detangling hair and can fit in your handbag for styling on the go! Pair with a sleek black comb and a ceramic coated round brush for achieving the perfect voluminous blow-dry or creating soft bouncy curls.
If your friend is big on beauty, we have a charming selection of branded makeup brushes. Our makeup brush range covers all brush sizes and shapes you could wish for, so you can either mix–and-match to form your own gift selection, or we have a premade gift set of 5 selected makeup brushes for just £21.00.
