The most wonderful time of the year is just around the corner. You’re in charge of seemingly everything: the guest list, the multi-course lunch, the decorations and the present buying. We know how you feel. When you’re busy juggling all that quotidian life throws at you - deadlines, family responsibilities, holiday planning - it’s easy to fall-back on socks and book vouchers to placate the crowd.
While we all love to replenish our hosiery draws and line our bookshelves with new tomes, it can begin to feel a little repetitive receiving - and giving - the same gifts, albeit in various guises, year after year. So we have taken it upon ourselves to lighten your holiday load. This week we’re publishing our pick of the best luxury gifts that you and yours are guaranteed to love. We’ve looked beyond the obvious knick-knacks and stocking fillers to bring you suggestions of beauty gifts to uplift, inspire and indulge even the most discerning of family members.
Today, we’ve rounded up our pick of the best serums, creams, masks and luxury beauty products guaranteed to thrill any beauty aficionado and keep them looking and feeling their best into 2021 and beyond.
