Beauty-full Christmas tree!
Never mind the gifts UNDER your tree – have a look at what could be hanging ON it! Our ‘beauty-full’ Christmas tree’s boughs are weighed down with cute Christmas baubles containing all sorts of beauty treats.
Pop one of these on a friend or relative’s tree when you visit – see how long it takes them to notice! Buy them as stocking fillers or cute table gifts. I’ve decorated this cute wee tree with few of my favourites this year.
Lipbalm is a favourite item for these gifts. Eve Lom’s beautiful Kiss Mix Star is a gorgeous glittery star containing the rich and nourishing Kiss Mix Lip Balm (£16, spacenk.co.uk)
Steamcream also has a cute star for Christmas this year, which contains a 25ml tub of versatile steamcream (£7.50, steamcream.com). You can reuse this cute star as well.
Soap and Glory’s lip balm bauble is called Merry Kiss Much and contains the A Great Kisser lip balm, and it’s just £5 (boots.com). It’s a cute reusable round tin you can refill with whatever you like and hang on your tree again.
L’Occitane’s Shea Butter Hand & Foot Cream duo (£16, loccitane.com) is a great little gift, with two 30ml tubes of their lovely feet and hand creams with nourishing shea butter, in their on-tree gift.
Who wouldn’t love The Body Shop’s Bob The Polar Bear Bath Sponge (£4) hanging from your tree? He’s a super-soft festive cutie, just waiting for a bath or shower.
Philosophy has a range of Christmas beauty decorations, including a 30ml Hands of Hope hand and cuticle cream in a box (£9, ), and also their famous moisturiser Hope in a Jar (£10) in a small size in cute decoration-style packaging. Both at philosophyskincare.co.uk
Also from Soap & Glory there’s a cute cardboard candy-cane box called Santa Gloss. It contains a lovely pink/neutral shade of Sexy MotherPucker Lip Lacquer for just £5 as well.
Molton Brown’s Festive Baubles (£10, moltonbrown.co.uk) are almost too good to take off the tree – these lovely clear baubles are full of their signature scented washes, and come in eight scents – we’ve got a green Eucalyptus hanging from our tree – you can choose from Black Peppercorn, Frankincense & Allspice, Gingerlily, Orange & Bergamot, Pink Pepperpod, Templetree or Ylang-Ylang.
We all need a bit of extra sleep during the festive period – or at least some help getting to sleep, with all the stress and partying. So, this lovely, cute Sleep Balm bauble from This Works (£10, thisworks.com) is a thoughtful gift. It contains a lovely 100% natural sleep balm, containing lavender oil, to help you drift off and dream of, well, Christmas probably!
Lush’s Winter Garden Christmas bauble (£18.50, lush.co.uk) is the biggest bauble we’ve ever seen! Filled with four gorgeous full-size Lush products, this is a bit big for our wee tree- but what a fantastic gift – and you can reuse the lovely tin afterwards. It contains Ro’s Argan body conditioner, Rose Jam Shower Gel, Sultana of Soap and Helping Hands hand cream.
Finally, Lacoste has really lovely Alpine themed Christmas sleeves on their classic fragrances this year – how cute is the skiing crocodile? The sleeves have ribbons, and you can hang these on big Christmas trees, but they are at the bottom of ours – just a wee bit heavy for this wee tree! Lacoste Eau de Lacoste L.12.12 in Blanc is in a green-ribboned sleeve, and we love this classic men’s scent (£47, 100ml). For the women in your life, there’s A Touch of Pink (£42, 50ml) and finally, Lacoste Live (£47, 100ml). All at lacoste.com
