Back in the day, my Christmas wish list considered of two things: beauty products and books. Now, owing to the good fortune of having a job that supplies me with the former, it’s all about books and stuff for my home (I’m pretty sure I’m everyone’s least favourite person to buy for – I doubt anyone ever got a thrill from buying another a Joseph Joseph chopping board).
Were I, however, not in the enormously fortunate position of having these three puppies in my house, they’d be top of my list…
Aromatherapy Associates Ultimate Bath Jewels / Aromatherapy Associates: you’ve floored me. Ten bottles of your incredible bath & shower oils all trussed up in this festive box = joy distilled. Each bottle contains around three baths so this not only a lovely taster to anyone new to the brand but also really rather good value indeed.
Aerin Rose De Grasse / This is it for me on the perfume front. It’s a fresh, not cloying, blend of roses that’s uplifting and really, really doesn’t have any powdery granny undertones. I’d give this to anyone I liked enormously, too – it’s a universally pleasing scent that always garners compliments.
Neom Tranquility Sleep Gift Collection / Alright, I’ll admit it: nothing brings me more joy than a cosy evening at home rounded off with a sound night’s sleep. This kit is just the thing when I plod out of my AA-laced bath and want to get some quality time between the sheets – I just burn the soporific candle as I oil up and then spritz the pillow mist. Dreamy.
