Beauty hampers that we wish would magically appear under our trees this Christmas.
It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas. Restaurants, hotels, malls and even homes are all decked with glimmering fir trees, bells and holly. Everywhere you go, there’s talk of meals topped with delicious rum cakes and glasses of eggnog (or mulled wine). There are invites to afternoon brunches with old friends and new. The joie de vivre that the Christmas season brings with it is simply irresistible, and it’s also got us engulfed in the spirit of gifting. And sometimes, receiving.
Whether you’re looking for an office Secret Santa exchange or looking to give a loved one a unique gift, these beauty gifting hampers are a great way to spread the Christmas spirit. While beauty gifting is still in its nascent stages, beauty advent calendars that help you do a little countdown to Christmas are big internationally. And while we love the ones that brands like L’Occiane and MAC offer in India, we are starting small by picking beauty boxes that target specific concerns or are dedicated to helping you achieve a festive glow. Even sprinkled with Christmas themed paraphernalia in certain cases. Packed with curated beauty goodies and some iconic products, these beauty hampers are an easy and sure-shot way to spread Christmas cheer.
