FINALLY, a Christmas gift guide that isn't just shite candle and cologne recommendations

The Cheek Christmas gift guide aims to have all bases covered. That's why we categorise our suggestions by foremost identifying the category of person you're purchasing a goodie for (e.g. boyfriend, dog, evil mother-in-law, tacky boss) and provide three gift ideas at varying price points. Thank us for our wisdom on December 25th through Instagram or via email. Happy hunting and as per usual this is absolutely and in no way sponsored, we just wanna help out.

WARNING: This is part of a SERIES this is not every category of person we consider to exist. Thank you for your understanding, we are DRAGGING out content for clicks and I mean that in the most serious way.

Category one: Significant Other!! Or not even that significant maybe even a friend romance? Something to buy for yourself? Just overall goodness?

I use my membership to listen to books while shitting, showering, commuting, cooking and standing by the printer at work in order to avoid chatting to Karens. Each month of membership provides a credit for any book, subsequent books are only fifteen bucks.

Go-To Skincare packs

Click here to browse the range

I trust Zoe Foster Blake with my Spotify listens, I trust her with my skin and therefore I trust her with my life. Go-To won me over with their no-bullshit branding and just plain old funny-ness. They don't give a fuck about selling you the 'this cream was made from coffee beans and the tears of dolphins, hand-picked by our underpaid workers from the rainforest floor and delivered fresh to our lab' big brand absolute shite. They make great products and take the complicated out of skincare. They also have great packs for kiddies and the guys you meet on tinder who exfoliate with home brand shampoo. Specific shoutout to face hero xx love you boo.
