Ticking the boxes
I have to admit there was a time when I felt that a beauty gift box seemed like a fairly lazy present option. You’d tend to only use one of the products and who wants to wake up to Christmas-themed packaging in their bathroom in January? Not I for one. However, times have changed, brands have upped the gift box ante and suddenly the selection of delightfully curated beauty faves on offer is a bit more thrilling, genuinely useful and now sounds like an altogether brilliant gift idea.
