I recently blogged my top beauty advent calendars to treat yourself or a loved one to in the run-up to Christmas. Now take a look at my Top 5 Christmas Crackers for either the day itself or as a quirky present...
Jo Malone - who wouldn't like a few Jo Malone goodies over Christmas lunch?! This is a 'luxury' cracker as it is £30 for just one cracker (so perhaps only do it for yourself and your best friend!). Inside you get Blackberry & Bay Cologne, Lime Basil & Mandarin Body & Hand Wash and Grapefruit Body Crème.
Nails Inc - these are £29.50 for the six. Inside each one is a FULL SIZE polish which is great. You're not being fobbed off with minis. The shades are: Mayfair Mews – navy Fibre Optic polish, Baker Street – cobalt blue (a personal fave of mine), Marylebone Lane – red glitter polish, King’s Road – rose gold Foil effect polish, Kensington High Street - deep wine polish and Trafalgar Crescent – silver Galaxy polish. Great value in my opinion
Cowshed - I'm so glad they've brought this out again this year. I got this for my Secret Santa in the office last year as I'd only just started working there and this is a pretty safe bet - everyone would love this. And for only £10 it's a great stocking filler or Secret Santa present. You get a Wild Cow Invigorating Bath & Shower Gel and a Knackered Cow Relaxing Body Lotion.
Lipstick Queen - exclusive to SpaceNK, there are two varieties of Lipstick Queen crackers, one is £20 (blue) and the other is £25 (purple). The blue one contains Laughter Shower Gel, Rococo Fashion Victim Nail Polish and Lipstick Queen Saint Rose Lipstick in Rosebud Pink. Whereas in the purple one you get Lipstick Queen Lip Brush, Rococo Stone Cold Karma Luxe Nail Polish and Lipstick Queen Nude Sinner Lipstick. They would both make great presents.
Anatomicals - the biggest bargain of them all! £3 for this Smacker in a Cracker Christmas Kissing Set! From ASOS, you get a minty lip balm and breath freshener. All you need for standing under the mistletoe!
Which one is your favourite?
