Christmas is now nearly upon us and those last minute shoppers will be thinking about what to buy their loved ones. When it comes to finding the perfect gift, the key is to show the recipient that you have given their present time and thought. I have always told my friends and family that I love gifts that have clearly had a lot of thought put into them, from my husband gifting me a photobook of my late mum and a bottle of her favourite perfume to my little cousins making me cards and gifts of play dough sculptures and glitter, those are the ones I cherish the most!
Whoever you are shopping for, Boots have a variety of Christmas gifting options, from luxe advent calendars and beauty buys to creative stocking fillers and adventurous gift experiences.
50 Days of Christmas
Boots have invited me to take part in their 50 Days of Christmas Campaign, whereby I partner with Boots UK to select Christmas gifts for those who are special to me.
The Soap and Glory Wash Come True Gift Set and (RRP £16) and the Mark Hill Cheers to the Freaking Weekend Gift Set (RRP £25)
I chose these gifts for my auntie. As she travels a lot and has her own holiday home in Spain I thought these would be perfect for her suitcase! They go travelling anything between 2-4 times a year so buying toiletries that are the right size for travelling can be quite expensive so hopefully she will be really pleased with this lovely set!
The Soap and Glory Wash Come True Gift sets includes seven body washes! Featuring perfectly travel-sized treats in fragrances such as oat-y honey, floriental, zesty lime and many more!
This set includes;
1 x Clean On Me Creamy Moisture Shower Gel
1 x Sugar Crush Fresh and Foamy Body Wash
1 x Rich and Foamous Shower and Bath Wash
1 x Foam Call Shower and Body Wash
1 x Clean Girls Body Wash
1 x Calm One Calm All Bubbling Bath Soak
1 x Best Washes Limited Edition Spiced Body Wash
Each of the body washes smells so good and they have a pearlescent appearance to them, making them not only practical but attractive too!
These washes are 75ml.
The Mark Hill Cheers to the Freaking Weekend
This set comes packaged in an iridescent box with all the goodies on show!
Inside this set you will find;
1 x Freezehold Hairspray 50ml
1 x Taming Anti Humidity 50ml
1 x Mini Paddle Brush
1 x Mini Hairdryer
This set compliments the Soap and Glory Set well as it is also perfect for travelling with all the miniature travel items inside. Especially in Spain the humidity can get unbearable so the Taming Anti Humidity bottle is perfect for keeping in your handbag for on the go use!
The mini hairdryer fits perfectly into your luggage saving you plenty of space to bring home any gifts you may buy.

This is perfect as she is always on the go as she has a busy lifestyle where she works away a lot so these products will be just perfect for her.
Lip and Hand Care
For my lovely nan here we have ‘A little Something’ Lip and Hand Care gift set at £5 as well as a Silver Crane Petticoat Tails Tin filled with 300g of All Butter Shortbread Petticoat Tails £6.50.

Petticoat Tail Biscuits
I chose the petticoat tail biscuits for my nan as she loves a good biscuit! And these classic treats are yummy plus the design on the box attracted me to it as my nan used to have a similar dog, and she still really loves them.

The last two gifts I chose for my mother and father in law. Lily O’Briens Desserts Collection, these retail at £7.50 for a 230g box. Lily O’Brien’s chocolates are well known. This is a collection of the world’s best loved dessert recipes including;

My mother and father in law really are a gift to us, they are always there when we need them and are always helping us out with something or other and we truly are so grateful to them both, so these little treats are the perfect way of thanking them.
Don’t forget that a lot of these products mentioned are also included in Boots 3 for 2 offer so there are some huge savings to be had!
