Going to a Christmas lunch or dinner and don’t know what to take the hostess? After spending most of the day cooking for everyone she is probably not going to want a boring old bottle of white wine. Besides, you can do better than that! Think of all the effort she (and we are assuming it’s a she) is going to and that means all you have to do is go out and buy her something nice.
If you want to really spoil your hostess this year, have a little look at our suggestions of Christmas presents for the hostess:
Balmain is another one of those brands that we have all heard about but perhaps not all of us can afford, so to get a little travel-sized bag like this is a great way to try the brand without forking out. This set include a shampoo and conditioner and that little bag as well.
You can’t go wrong with Clarins as a choice of presents for the hostess. Even if your hostess hasn’t tried the brand before, it is one of those iconic beauty brands that just gets it right every time. This set contains one black mascara, a make-up eye shadow palette, an eye make-up remover, all in the cutest make-up bag.
In this set you get five products, all designed to help your skin achieve a more youthful glow. There’s a cleanser, hydrating serum, facial radiance pads and a repair lip balm. Good for all skin types.
- Kiehl’s Creme De Corps Collection – $58.00
Two of Kiehl’s most popular products in a limited edition package by Brooklyn artist Jeremyville. You get the super moisturizing body wash and body lotion.
Three candles that perfectly capture the essence of winter. ‘Birchwood Pine’ is evocative of winter forests covered in snow, ‘Hearth’ evokes embers of frankincense and sandalwood whilst ‘Holiday’ imbues scents of mandarin and cinnamon.
I’ve always loved Roger & Gallet soaps, ever since I was bought their carnation soap about 30 years ago. This set of four includes rose, orange, fig and mandarin. Gorgeous.
Every hostess worth her salt needs a nude nail polish collection. This one from Deborah Lippman has six, from cool nudes to warm including Totally Nude, Flesh for Fantasy, Bare it All and Skin Deep.
Five multitasking masks here that suit all skin types. You get a cooling cucumber mask, a lifting gold mask, a nutrient-rich one, an exfoliating one and a purifying mask. A good choice of christmas presents for the hostess
