Is there anybody more precious than your Grandma? She’s the head of the family right? Well, in our family she’s the Don. Our Glam-ma is totally sassy and always keeping up to date with top trends. She’s even part of our family Whatsapp group. Buying for a glamorous Grandma is exceptionally difficult as she likes on-trend and relevant things. No knitting and embroidered cat cushions here. Here are our top four picks for this holiday season for gift inspiration for your very own Glam-ma.
A firm favourite in stores Harvey Nichols and Sephora, the brand which is synonymous with elegance and named after the Hungarian-born American dermatologist who created the brand in New York in 1939 where celebrities such as Grace Kelly, Greta Garbo, Marilyn Munroe and Audrey Hepburn all visited the Institute for beauty treatments and cosmetics.
Add a little bit of Silver Screen back into your Glam-ma’s life this Christmas. Like they say, the old ones are the best?
Let’s face it Glam-ma probably invented the beauty regime you’re preaching so she’ll be well versed in cleansing. The Firmarine™ Cleansing Set is the ultimate in creating a youthful and firm face whilst removing all the day’s dirt. In the duo, you’ll find the Firmarine™ Cleansing Oil, which is a lifting dual-performance oil that uses marine algae. This is used to penetrate pores, dissolving trapped oils, impurities and makeup on contact.
The Firmarine™ Face Bar again uses marine algae but this time to cleanse using a time-release lifting complex which smooths and firms the skin. Leading to a softer, more youthful and radiant-looking complexion. You’ll want to team it with the Hydra-therapy sleep mask for the ultimate favourite grandchild gift.
The night treatment delivers unprecedented moisture and vital nutrients overnight which is great for revitalising ageing skin. The unprecedented moisture released overnight alongside the vital nutrients will have your Glam-ma looking younger overnight! With kelp extract and prickly pear, only the highest grade ingredients are found in this celebrity favourite. With 24-hour smart hydrators that help restore and maintain maximum moisture levels both day and night. The memory sleep mask restores elasticity and gives a bounce back to Glam-ma’s cheeks. Simply apply to the face after cleansing (the cleansing duo is a dream and recommended to accompany the mask) and then rinse off any excess in the morning with warm water. Give the gift of youthful complexion this Christmas. Available directly from Erno Laszlo or from the following stores: Harrods, Feel Unique, Mankind, Dermstore and Beauty Expert.
From the age-old secrets of Korean spas, this blue mask harnesses a soothing, skin-firming and moisture replenishing boost. The two-step mask is perfect pampering before a big night out, after a long day or even just because! The dual step formula is mixed to activate and then peeled to reveal firmer, more youthful skin.
Harnessing the power of Spirulina Maxima which is a high-powered algae extract to promote collagen growth and renewal. Which will help restore the firmness and bounce both inside and out. Next up the Pullulan which has been derived from natural sugars. It soothes and balances the skin’s moisture levels while tightening tired sagging skin. Finally, the Provitamin B5 (Panthenol) fiercely defends the skin against water loss, restoring the natural moisture that keeps skin soft and smooth.
Glam-ma will absolutely love you for this trio of Erno Laszlo products under the tree this holiday season.

Christmas means only one thing, turkey dinner. After the festive season is over though it’s time to work off those Christmas pounds you’ve put on. If your Grandma is anything like mine she’ll be a feeder. The one who buys enough party food for Jesus and the 5,000 to come for a fortnight. If your Grandma loves to cook, especially seafood then she’s going to just love this Salmon curing kit from Ross & Ross.
Of course, like Grandma (in my eyes) it’s award-winning, and contains everything you need to make your own Gin, Smoky and Beetroot cured Salmon at home. All you need to do is head to the fishmonger or local supermarket and just add Salmon.
Designed for even the most novice of cooks, this curing kit will create delicious meals. If you can share them with your friends and family then you can show off as a bona fide British Artisan Food Producer too!
Grandma will love this break from cooking the bird this Christmas so make sure you stuff her stocking with Salmon this festive period.
