The start of November means that the Christmas countdown has begun, and the pressure to find the perfect gift is on. When it comes to gifting, there are two types of people; the type that get their presents in early and avoid the inevitable rush on the high street, and those that wait for inspiration to strike and leave it to the last minute. Whichever camp you fall into, we want to help take the stress out of gift buying this year.
With a help from our founder we've handpicked an incredible selection of luxury treats that will please even the pickiest of recipients.
1. Argentum Apothecary - La Potion Infinie
Not only does this revolutionary skin cream arrive in style (carefully stowed in a beautifully packaged box) but the insides are just as incredible too. It contains DNA HP - a natural ingredient developed by Nobel-winning scientists. Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil and Vitamin E give this thirst-quenching formula its luxuriously soft and nourishing texture. Perfect for all skin types - so it's suitable for everyone.
2. Connock London - Kukui Oil Eau de Parfum
Perfume is a winner, but picking out something with a universal appeal is tough. This gorgeous scent from Connock London is a real crowd pleaser. The fragrance is built around the Gardenia flower and is complimented by a full bouquet of fresh flowers including Italian Bergamot, Moroccan Rose, White Jasmine and Calla Lily. The scent is further enriched with Sandalwood, Vetiver, White Amber and layers of cashmere and sheer musks, completed with the rich bitter chocolate sweetness of Vanilla Absolute and Tonka Bean. Delicious!
This nourishing hand cream makes for a beautiful and indulgent little stocking filler. It's formulated with rich ingredients like macadamia Nut & avocado oil and is expertly blended to comfort & soothe skin. The beneficial hydrating extracts of Aloe & Shea Butter lightly moisturise and the formula quickly melts into the skin, leaving no residue.
