Skin Guru Nicole Manning

FENN’s co-founder shares her perfect presents

By Nicole Manning

Located in the heart of Paddington, FENN is a skincare and wellness destination that’s the perfect place to escape from pre-Christmas chaos. And if there’s anyone who knows the best luxurious treats to buy the women on your list, it’s co-founder Nicole.

‘I’m giving Mum some little luxuries’

Baina towels made from organic GOT-certified cotton are a fun and luxurious addition to your beach kit or bathroom. We stock a range of beautiful colours – I might gift her a mixed set.

This bare-hands kit is perfect for the times she can’t make it to FENN!

I love this soap for its crisp scent, efficacy and perfect size.

A massage with Jessie from The Calmm inspires true love. Jessie is a magician!

$110 for 60 minutes

‘What I’d really love for myself’

This Lucy Folk swing dress is summer by the beach, defined.

I admire the Addition Studio Oil Burner each day at FENN and am yet to sneak one home. Perhaps someone might buy it for me?

Tamsin Johnson’s new book looks perfect to browse over the break. Her work is eclectic and storied. 

Fella Swim bikini: This was my favourite bikini last year and I’m excited for another one!

‘What I’m buying my foodie husband, Tim’ 

For the ultimate pizza nights in the garden at home, I know he’d love this Swedish pizza oven. I love this brand and their approach to backyard cooking!

Ottolenghi’s new book, Test Kitchen, isn’t as daunting as those earlier ones containing some of his more complex recipes!

This cleanser is perfect for male skin, providing gentle exfoliation. Beautifully packaged, too.

Lamb Butchery at Victor Churchill: A technical, hands-on class with the VC butchers.

‘My best friend would love these’ 

I’m obsessed with this brand, Palorosa! I love their collection of woven baskets and objects handmade in Guatemala, which incorporate recycled plastic and have a unique palette.

I love IN BED. Its founders, Pip & Eddy, are such creative legends and their products are beautiful. Their pyjamas are a Christmas-gift staple for me.

From a pair of Australian sisters, I love the more relaxed style of Nagnata collections, including this great bralet.

Emma Lewisham Illuminating Oil Cleanser: Such a beautiful product, which I recommend often.
