For the most of us 2020 has not been the most exciting year, but why not make the end of this year magical and get into the Christmas mood early. We can start to plan the Holidays, menu, decorations, ski trips and family time. It’s also a time of the year when we think about our loved ones and what we could buy for them, so they could feel appreciated and loved, but also gifts that will be useful and spark the joy.
I prepared a few gift ideas for her and him, I skipped the kids section, as I think it’s so easy to buy gifts for them and usually they prepare their own lists and they know exactly what they want from the Santa. Like my son, he will say in a heart-beat what is that he wants to find under the Christmas tree. It’s a little bit more complicated with the adults, especially that we have already too many things. On my lists you can find something for everyone. There are beauty gifts, little (or not little) something for you or for him. I selected items that are often Swiss, with sustainable approach, but also some well-known brands.
Gifting beauty products never gets old. It’s an ideal present for out moms, sisters, friends or even for ourselves. Each year for the Christmas brands try to impress us more with more beautiful gits boxes and new, limited editions. If you would like to see Clarins offer and their Advent Calendar, then please click here, as I wrote about it last week. Below I have added few of my favorite items to give this Christmas, scents, skincare, hair-care and make-up.
