4 sleeps to Christmas and Blogmas part 7 is here so let's talk about gifting your friends for Christmas. This is my 3rd proposition this year. I talked about luxury gifting here and medium range here. Today I'd like to show you my super easy and also cheaper option for gifting your friends. It involves Boots 3 for 2 on gift sets and creating your own personalised gifts :) Let's see shall we?
Firstly I visited Wilko and bought few mini gift bags. I wanted mine to be in more of a vintage tone so I choose recycled paper and natural tones :) They only cost 50p per bag so you're saving yourself a small fortune comparing them to any other shop. I also got some ribbons, wooden tree baubles and chocolate money to add to the gift bags ;)
Second I went to Boots and on their Christmas gift set sale I got 2, one being 12 votive candle set from Yankee Candle, all in Christmas scents and secondly, I purchased Soap & Glory Soaprise Christmas Cracker set. What a cracking day of Christmas shopping :)
I added one cracker each to the bag as well as some ribbons and chocolate money to inside of the bag for the added wow effect. I also placed 2 mini candles each and topped it off with a bottle of a nail polish. I had few to spare but again you can purchase them separately.
And voila, my Christmas mini beauty bags for my girlfriends are complete. They represent me a lot as there's some beauty treats hidden inside and I choose the nail polish as they all enjoy doing their nails. I tried to ensure the shade is something they would definitely wear, but maybe something they wouldn't think of to pick for themselves. Ranging from OPI through Essie and Nails Inc there's something there for everyone.
This is super easy way to put a personal stamp on the gift, as well as being very thoughtful, it's also fun to play around with different ideas. I hope my girls like their little sets and have a wonderful, Yankee Candle smelling Christmas. Don't forget that choosing a price range for your gift is super important and you don't want to overwhelm someone. It's lovely to be given a gift that's thoughtful, yet easy on the wallet, as it feels less committing :)
