With their pretty, maximalist packaging, Crabtree & Evelyn has always been my go-to brand for beauty gifts, especially at Christmas. When I was younger I would always lust after the gorgeously printed hat boxes full of sweet-smelling wonders! Then, when I could finally stretch to actually purchasing them myself – ironically, I never did. Instead, I’d buy them for friends and family, the joy being in wrapping up such delectable goodies.
Each Christmas, I still do the same but this year my eye is on these lovely Handcare Trio Gift Boxes. This Festive version, £15, contains three Hand Therapy hand-creams (which sink into the skin immediately, leaving them velvety smooth, and are so handy to carry with you during the day or when travelling.) Rose Pineapple, Festive Fig and Spiced Earl Grey scents are ideal for this time of year, evoking a sensuous Christmas-time: a period of cosseting and cosiness.
A smaller version is this cute Feast for the Senses Cracker, £6, which contains three 10g Hand Therapies of the same scents. Just the perfect stocking filler, making the most charming find under any beauty lover’s tree. Stock(ing) up now.
