Christies Direct - Christmas Gifting
This is the first in our Christies Christmas Gifting series. In this blog post we will share a selection of gifts for groomers. From those under £20, perfect for Secret Santa, up to our more exclusive items for the groomer who has everything. Whether shopping for someone else or looking for gift suggestions for yourself we have a range of fantastic products perfect for gifting this festive season.
In our office we love organising Secret Santa and see it as a real chance to be creative on a budget. We use the website Draw Names https://www.drawnames.co.uk/ to help anonymously select who we are shopping for.
Gifts Under £20
Here are some of our top gifts for groomers priced at under £20:
Chris Christensen Flint Lint Roller - £5.84
Coming in at under £10 this is a perfect stocking filler for a groomer (or pet owner). The innovative design allows it to retract so it will not get covered in hair or dust when stored in your car or grooming bag.
Advanced Groomer Care for Working Hands Set - £12.95
This lovely set is a great practical gift for groomers with a fragrance-free cleansing gel to help prevent the spread of germs while keeping hands refreshed. The cleansing gel contains glycerin which traps moisture so this hand sanitiser will not dry our hands.
Groomers hands are exposed to a whole host of different elements: water, heat, and grooming products, and at this time of year the weather can also leave hands dry, red, and cracked. This deeply moisturising hand cream is easily absorbed, non-greasy and leaves skin nourished, renewed and beautifully soft.
– Pink or Purple £19.95
Help start a good habit of safely storing equipment when not in use with a GP Acrylic scissor holder available in pink or purple. These striking scissor holders will hold 8 pairs of scissors keeping them close at hand ready to use, but out of the away to avoid damage or injury. This will look fab in a salon.
This tool holster is sized to hold 4 pairs of scissors. Created in a retro style in black and hot pink, this holster is made from rich faux leather and is ideal for use in the salon or at competitions. With a comfortable shoulder strap to allow hands-free work, this would be a great gift this Christmas.
This pocket edition of Notes from a Grooming Table is a quick and easy reference guide for groomers. It is a must-have for professional groomers in training.

Perfect for groomers on the go who want to look stylish AND professional. This hardwearing tool bag has loads of compartments for all your different equipment. It comes with a comfortable detachable shoulder strap and is crafted from an easy-clean material.
These may not be the shoes of dreams, but there won’t be many party invites this Christmas anyway. Shoes are a necessity, and these Crocs Bistro clogs are created for those who work on their feet all day. Nothing is more luxurious than comfort: our feet carry us every day and having shoes that are designed to reduce strain on joints, feet, and back is something we all could benefit from! These clogs have maximum cushioning, secure heel strap, slip-resistant tread for wet floors, and are easy to clean and quick to dry. They won’t take you to a Christmas Party but they will make your day-to-day grooming incredibly comfortable.
