How is your gift shopping going? Are you completely organised or still needing a few ideas for last minute stylish gifts? If so, read on because I have some ideas for you. Our gift wrapping post last year was so popular we thought we would do a new one this year.
This year we had the idea of creating a gift hamper or gift box, depending on the size of the gifts you are giving. For friends we have done something similar to last year by buying gift packages and splitting them up to make up our own. This worked well this year with some of the items in a pack being better for a warm skin tone and some better for a cool skin tone.
We bought sets of 3 nail varnishes and lip glosses, a multi pack of bubble bath, alphabet mugs, socks and candles. (A lot of the items we bought have sold out so I have listed some more ideas below)
We also wanted to create a special pack for a Mum.
For this one we combined a variety of small gifts with a wool wrap, including an individual Christmas Pudding and Turkish delight, a floral mug with spring bulbs and a pretty pair of socks.
For the boxes we used the bottom of a couple of Beauty Box subscription boxes filled with tissue paper.
Then we covered the gift boxes with cellophane.
We then tied it with ribbon…
And added a bauble.
The finished box.
For the larger hamper size we covered a brown box with silver paper
Lined it with bright foil
Then added the gifts

Then finished it off with ribbon
Here are some more suggestions for what to put in your gift boxes…
