This year, it goes without saying, that everyone needs a little pick me up. A little something to bring a smile to our face. Christmas is approaching and we need to start thinking about what presents to buy. Whether it’s for a family member, a work colleague, or for a Secret Santa present, a beauty hamper is a much-appreciated gift. Don’t allow the pressure of Christmas shopping to way you down. When you’re stuck for inspiration, this gift is beautifully presented and can be gifted to all, young and old. Here I have gathered a selection of beauty hamper ideas to provide you with inspiration.
DIY beauty hamper
Bespoke, one of a kind beauty hampers are the ideal choice. Here, all you will need is an intricate basket or cardboard box wrapped in Christmas paper, tissue paper (preferably coloured) & some delicate ribbon to tie around the base. Fill it with the beauty products of the brand you know the person likes and voilȃ! It really is as simple as that.
But I don’t know which beauty products the person likes? If you are putting together a beauty hamper for someone from work for example, then buy go-to products that you never let go of. Another little tip from me is to browse the internet for offers. The great thing about this is that you’re not looking for a certain product. You are essentially searching for products to fill a box. So pay little, the giftee will never ever know and they’ll just assume that you’ve been super generous with your gift.
The skincare collection
For those people who you know don’t wear too much makeup, gift a beauty hamper containing skincare products. Try the same technique as above but fill it with alternative products. Although, if the only offers you can find are for anti-aging treatment and you don’t want to offend anyone, then I have found some great options available.
All of us enjoy running a nice warm bath during the winter months whilst we don our favourite facemask. The BodyShop has put together three of their most popular face masks. Appropriately named ‘Things might get messy masking kit’, it claims to illuminate, moisturize, and revitalize. Who wouldn’t appreciate a little of that right now? Priced at only £18/€19/$30, it is one of the cheaper beauty hampers available on the market.
Now of course although we are in 2020 and there are some exceptions nowadays, men generally don’t wear makeup. We all know that it is notoriously more difficult to buy a present for a man. What do men even want anyway? We’ll discuss that another time. If you are searching for a present for your loved one or spouse, then consider ESPA’s sweat dreams collection beauty hamper. Available at the retail price on the official website, you can find it at a discounted price on LookFantastic. That’s ok, you can thank me later.
Now you’re ready to tick another Christmas present off the list! There is an abundance of beauty hamper gift sets available both online and on the high street. Without a doubt, you will be able to find a hamper for each beloved brand, and if not then create your own using my simple method. Happy shopping and Merry Christmas everyone!
