As you might have gathered – I’m a big fan of gifting. I just love ferreting out the perfect gift for loved ones, and I can spend weeks hunting out something special; but I love sharing little gifts too.
I think it’s so important to let people know how much you appreciate them – so little tokens, like these adorable Festive Favourite Crackers are such a seasonal treat! I also love these as little surprises for overnight guests (when they’re allowed) as not only are they cute, but they’re super handy to have too!
The packs come in fours, and each of the crackers contain mini shower gels and hand creams in four of the brand’s iconic scents: Cherry Blossom, Almond, Lavender and Shea Butter. Thanks to the differing fragrances, the crackers are completely unisex, and I can’t imagine anyone who wouldn’t absolutely love to receive one of these!
L’Occitane Festive Beauty Crackers are priced at £22 and are available here (UK) and similar here (US)
When it comes to this time of year, I feel like I need a sack of presents wherever I go. I’m a big believer in sharing the spirit of the season, and where possible, I like to share little treats when I can, so I’m always on the lookout for presents which people are going to love, and I think I’ve found an absolute winner in the form of L’Occitane’s adorable Verbena Festive Bauble.
Tucked inside an adorable golden tin is a handful of minis which will gift your recipient the perfect bath or shower. The tin even has a ribbon so you can hang it on your tree if you’re feeling particularly festive! I think it would also make the cutest place setting gift too!
Inside you’ll find a mini leaf soap, body lotion and hand cream – all in L’Occitane’s iconic Verbena fragrance. It’s one of my all-time favourites thanks to the fresh green notes. It’s pretty much a unisex scent, so the Festive Bauble is also perfect for keeping tucked into the emergency gift drawer! I always think having a stash of minis is so handy – I love packing a few of them away whenever I’m staying a a hotel to enjoy a bit of me-time!
L’Occitane Verbena Festive Bauble is priced at £12 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
If you’re trying to find a gift for a rather beauty-obsessed member of the family, you really must check out Josephine Fairley & Sarah Stacey’s rather wonderful The Anti-Ageing Beauty Bible.
The rather fetching bright pink book is filled with the most extensive range of reviews and tips you could imagine. Every beauty, health and well being question you can think of has been thoughtfully answered by the authors.
Even big issues like plastic surgery and fillers are addressed, so, if you’re contemplating some treatments, The Anti Ageing Beauty Bible is the perfect place to start your research.
I love how comprehensive the book is! Everything from how to best tweeze your eyebrows to the best products for your skin and hair types. Basically, the book is everything you need to stay as glamorous as possible in the New Year!
The Anti-Ageing Beauty Bible is on offer for £12.74 and is available here.
