Christmas is on the horizon, and if you’re already dreaming of a festive canape, humming along to Mariah Carey (you know the song), and researching tree decoration colour schemes, then you’re probably considering your gift list and what to buy for who. Monogrammed and personalised presents are always a hit with your nearest and dearest – show them you care with a gift marked with their initials, a special message or important date. Something as useful as a hairbrush can get the personal touch with a photo of your own.
A personalised gift is proof that the person knows you, they know your favourite people, your star sign – they even know your middle name; it’s being thoughtful in a stylish way.
So, it’s time to get personal with these seriously sentimental gifts that are perfect for everyone on your list…

Tangle-free tresses are a welcome Christmas gift! And with Tangle Teezer’s clever patented two-tiered teeth technology that’s exactly what you’ll get, with added extra shine. Personalise your Compact Styler detangling hairbrush with a photo and it’ll arrive packaged in a sleek, stylish little black box making it the perfect gift. Whether it’s for a friend, mother or child, any recipient would love this travel-friendly ally to detangle and refresh their hairstyle on the go – plus with a protective cover it’ll remain in perfect condition in a handbag or suitcase.
HELLO! Online Head of Lifestyle Leanne Bayley says: “I love the idea of a personalised hairbrush as a Christmas gift. I could gift one to my mum with her initials on, or put a sweet photo of my sister's dog on one for her, she'd love that. This makes a great Christmas stocking filler.”
