The one thing I love about blogging (apart from being able to word vomit and worry about it later) is that more often than not it allows me the opportunity to share exciting opportunities, experiences and gifts with friends and family that I care about. From taking my sisters to the Warner Bros Studio Tour London, to a fancy af lunch in Harrods, a morning at Go Ape with a close friend, i’ve had the opportunity to be both selfish with campaigns (and keep allll the goods for myself) but mainly i’ve been able to share the benefits of my blog. Something that over the past 6 years i’ve put a lot of love into. So it’s lovely to be able to share the rewards. Especially at Christmas.
When Boots got in touch to ask if I’d like to get involved with their 50 Days of Christmas campaign I couldn’t say no. The chance to pick out 2 gorgeous luxe gifts for 2 special people. I couldn’t say no. Especially when i’ve got 2 lovely (sometimes very annoying) sisters to hand who also happen to love Christmas and presents.
I always adore the Boots Christmas gift range and over the year it has grown from strength to strength, and as I found out from this post, the choice of amazing gorgeous presents is MASSIVE. I found it a) super hard to decide what to choose for my sisters and b) to resist adding everything to my basket for myself!
I love that one of Boot’s goals is to help their customers look and feel better than they ever thought possible. Boots mission is to be the first choice for pharmacy, health and beauty – caring for people, customers and communities everywhere; championing everyone’s right to feel good. And that is exactly the vibe that I went for for both of my sisters presents!
My Middle Sister, Ellie – Soap and Glory She’s Show Ready! Gift Set £60
The boots Christmas gifts for her section is pretty extensive, and with 1220 total gifts for her on offer it was pretty hard not to get majorly distracted! However for my middle sister Ellie I decided on the Soap and Glory She’s Show Ready! gift set. The set is amazing as it caters towards all glam girls with a combination of pampering products and makeup items – there’s something everyone will love in this showstopper of a gift (and if she doesn’t like everything, I will HAPPILY steal some of it off of her!).
The ginormous hot pink patterned tin contains pretty much every Soap & Glory product you would ever want in your life, and covers all parts of the pamper process. Perfect for the festive season! From The Righteous Butter, to the Thick and Fast Mascara, to a ginormous bottle of Hand food, to a Melty Talented balm, the tin is the perfect way to properly explore and indulge yourself in the Soap and Glory brand.
My Baby Sister, Izzy – Origins Our Best Of The Best £32
This might not seem like the most ‘exciting’ gift out there, but my baby sister and I have been blessed with pretty oily combination skin. The older I’ve got, the more I’ve grown to appreciate great skincare. I know my baby student sister wouldn’t shell out on pricey skincare herself, so I think giving the gift of a few skincare treats will go down a storm with her. And when she’s home from university for Christmas we can try out the masks together! Bonding and skincare goodness after indulging over the festive period? My skin will be screaming; hell. yes.
The Origins Our Best Of The Best set contains a complete travel-friendly skincare routine featuring the Origins cult-classic top-sellers. Worth over £55, this gift-set contains 7-bestselling products and includes 2 full sizes. Perfectly sized to try and to travel with! My little sister is currently living in Germany for a year as part of her epic degree in Law with German (wonder who got THE brains of the family) and due to her amazing location within Europe she is rinsing the dirt cheap inter-European travel, so travel minis will be her best mate!
The mini line up includes the Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores,Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion,Super Spot Remover Acne Treatment Gel, (full size), Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask to Quench Skin`s Thirst, GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream to Brighten and Depuff, GinZing Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer, (full size) AND the Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash. Phew!
The extra magical part of the Boots Christmas range is that all of the products are permanently on 3for2, so whilst splashing out for my sisters I can also treat myself to the third free item! IDEAL! Have you had a peek at the Boots Christmas range, what Boots gifting products do you think your friends and loved ones would adore?
