I love the giving aspect of Christmas, often preferring the look on others faces when they open up a carefully thought out gift rather than receiving my own – so yes I can a bit of a mare to buy for as I’m usually thinking about you and food rather than what I want. Something that makes it easier are special collated gift boxes housing a trinket of treats, with a little something for everyone or every need, and two such treats have landed on my doorstep this week that you seriously need to add to yours, a family member or friend’s list asap.

Let’s start with Bloom and Wild – I absolutely adore the company and their flowers are just the highest quality I’ve ever seen (they also kindly sent me out a bunch of blooms when I moved house and have looked as fresh as the first day the arrived, so so beautiful!) so when I heard about their special Christmas Boxes I knew it would be that special little something to put either in a stocking or give to a loved one pre or post-Christmas dinner organisation as a thank you.

The Dorchester Box caught my eye due to the Turkish towels, alpaca wool socks and bath salts soaked in ylang ylang for ultimate zen vibes, and I knew my mum would absolutely love it as a pre-Christmas treat to relax and just feel a little bit more luxurious in the run up to the festive frenzy. I will admit, I have my eye on the chocolate and socks, but I’m in serious need of a relaxing bath also, so maybe I’ll just have to get one for myself too…

Now if you like something a little more beauty and a bit of a surprise when you open it up, with a mix of drugstore and higher end pieces, the you need to check out the HQHair #Kissmas campaign! HQ Hair have an amazing box to give out to one lucky person if you tweet what you think the main prize could be, and also tag a friend and @HQHair in the message too, and as a sneak peek I got my hands on my own box (which could also become your box….spoilers)

So the #Kissmas box has so much variety, from contouring by the Master Sculpt palette (lots of raving about this) to some beautiful pink and cool toned eyeshadows from purminerals and HD Brows, you could easily make yours or your best friend’s Christmas with these amazing treats, and now you can as I am giving away my own #Kissmas box!

Yes, you can win all of these goodies (as I think it’s nice to give back to you guys, my readers and lovely internet pals) just in time for Christmas to get you party ready or even if you want to treat yourself but don’t feel you can, you could get it all for FREE!

Ahhh the gift that keeps on giving, I love Christmas.

Have you bought anything from Bloom and Wild recently? Are you a fan of giving presents more than getting them? Will you be entering my giveaway?

Lots of Love,
