A couple of weeks back, I attended the #BootsChristmas press event and let me just say Boots know how to throw a press event! Processo, facials, and manicures plus two floors of beauty heaven! With so many amazing gifts from Boots this Christmas, how do you decide what to get? Enter advent calendars! Beauty advent calendars to be exact. Last year I got my 1st ever advent calendar( both beauty and chocolate smh) and I had so much fun opening them and discovering new products every day( great for my product junkiness)
Last year’s selection of beauty advent calendars was great and it looks like this year, they are back in full force with a lot to offer! I have rounded up 5 of the best beauty advent calendars from Boots. I think these are the best value for money and from much-loved brands too. I also tried to pick calendars that give you the full 25 days with the exception of 1 calendar but it was worth adding to my list
So the theme at #BootsChristmas this year is thoughtful giving. They have teamed up with Psychologist Honey Langcaster-James to help you choose the best thoughtful gift for your loved ones. Before choosing a gift this season, think of these points (her top tips) for guidance
