Its not quite December yet but the Christmas spirit is fast approaching in the form of the traditional Christmas gift box, not just something your granny gets you as a safe bet there are now some pretty impressive ones which I’d be happy to find in my stocking. Gone are the days of Charlie Girl and sticky lipgloss, there are grown up gifts now. For your friends who are fragrance fanatics you can’t go wrong with Tom Ford’s Private Blend Collection so they can try all the best ones in miniature or for the super luxe there is the Acqua di Parma Luxury Leather Box. For beautiful presentation on Christmas Day also try the Chloe Gift Set or Balenciaga’s Paris Gift Set. If you are shopping for a beauty nut there is a lot out there, I like the YSL Bright Eyes Gift Set which has everything a girl could need on the go. Clinique Party Favours Gift Set has a lot of colour for bright young things whereas their Black Honey Beauty Set gives a gothic glamour. For budding makeup artists the perfect gift is Estee Lauder’s The Makeup Artist Professional Colour Collection and the Laura Mercier Luxe Travel Brush Collection is also a great starter set, for more pocket friendly presents try Bobbi Brown’s Everyday Palette and Date Night Palette which are amazing all rounders and guaranteed to be well received. If you’re thinking ahead and want a daily treat in the lead up to the big day make sure to get Ciate’s Mini Mani Advent Calendar, just try and find time to change your manicure each day to keep up. For winter nails with sparkle try Nails Inc Snowflake Collection or crank up the Mariah Carey and use her OPI Christmas Set at the same time for real Christmas cheer. You can even decorate your table with the Nails Inc Christmas Crackers for the nail obsessive. If your recipient is more of a low key and barefaced gal you can ignore all the above, its all about a skincare bumper pack. Origins Morning to Midnight set will keep any skin type covered and for a uplifting scent try Decleor’s Nourishing Aromessence Skincare Coffret Gift Set. If its a complete overhaul that’s needed get them Shiseido Bio-Performance Super Restoring Gift Set and if they are even more luxury than that your options will have to be Creme de la Mer Luminous Essentials Set or La Prairie Lux Caviar Moments Gift Set. Finally for those who’s hair has a swish to rival a polo pony’s pick up a gift set from Aveda or go bold with Balmain’s Hair Styling Collection. On second thoughts, you might need to switch that stocking for a pillow case.
