A Skin Care Box Makes A Great Gift for the Holidays!

We don’t know about you, but we are so ready for the holiday season this year. We admit it, we are certified holiday junkies. We get a weird glow in our eyes the minute we overeat on Thanksgiving Day until the day after New Year’s. During the holiday season, the one thing that stresses us out is the thought of having to come up with gifts for everyone on our list. Does that ever happen to you? If it does, we have a great idea for you. Take a minute and try the idea of giving a skincare box as a gift idea for the holidays. That way, you can get all of your shopping done on one site and make everyone on your gift list–from your mom to your best friend to your favorite niece–get holiday happy.

What Can I Put in a Skincare Box?

There are many options you may want to try for a skincare box you give as a gift. You may want to begin the gift box with a gift of serum. Serums such as the best vit C serum are a great way to customize your gifts for the people you love. You can choose serums that will be perfect for your favorite co-worker, or that lady at the synagogue who always helps you wrangle the children to get a seat. Vitamin C serum is great for every skin type, and every skin age. It brightens everyone’s skin, whether that skin is 20 or 80. Vitamin C serum also helps your family and friends minimize inflammation from acne or those age spots that drive people crazy. What a great serum to add to your skincare box!

You may also want to add another skincare serum that is great for every skin type, which is hyaluronic acid serum for face. We love hyaluronic acid, because it can accomplish several things. First of all, this acid is an extreme moisturizer. It can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water. Because hyaluronic acid is such an amazing water retainer, it allows your skin to look dewy and refreshed, no matter how long you’ve been out in the dry winter air. One of the best things about hyaluronic acid serum is that it works whether your skin is exceptionally dry during the winter, or exceptionally oily. Hyaluronic acid serum adds water to your complexion without adding oil, which can cause your skin to become irritated and suffer a breakout. 

Whether you are thinking about a small gift box, with a vial of vitamin C serum, or a larger box with vitamin C serum, hyaluronic acid serum, and other items, you can customize it any way you want. If you are looking for other items to add, you may want to look for a derma roller. Like the serums we talked about, the derma roller is great for any skin type, and people have been using it for decades to keep their skin in great shape. If you are looking for other ideas, why not jump online today, and have a look at all of our product ideas? We know we can make the holidays especially merry for your favorite people in the world. 

A guide for Secret Santa’s

While Christmas is a time for eating, drinking and being merry, it is also the time of stressful shopping trips and panic buying. You’ve already got parents, partners and everyone else to buy for, so imagine your delight when your work announces that they are doing a Secret Santa this year.

However, there’s no need to panic. We’ve taken a look at Hawkins Bazaar’s range of Secret Santa ideas and selected something to suit any budget.

£5 and under

Every office has someone that has an endless supply of sweets and treats on their desk. Forever nibbling, they are rarely seen without their snacks and, for obvious reasons, they are one of the most popular people in the workplace.

Created by Jelly Belly, Bean Boozled is a selection of yummy jelly beans, mixed in with some not so tasty flavours. The juicy pear, strawberry jam and peach ones are sure to go down a storm, however, the vomit, mouldy cheese and dog food flavours are to be avoided at all costs. This fun gift will provide some office giggles come January, and help to alleviate the traffic around the snacker’s desk!

£10 and under

Central to any workplace is the office gossip. Always the first to know the latest happenings and poking their nose into other people’s business, it just wouldn’t be the same without them.

If you pulled their name out of the hat this year, this fantastic vintage-style mug would be perfect for them. Complete with the slogan ‘It must be true, I read it on Facebook’, the cup would be the perfect accompaniment to chatting around the kettle during teatime.

£15 and under

There’s always that one desk in an office that is littered with figurines, knick-knacks and ornaments. Why not add to their collection of clutter with this solar powered queen? Dressed in her staple lilac attire, her majesty will use her signature wave to greet visitors to their desks. It’s also the perfect gift for those royal enthusiasts, who hang out the bunting at the first sign of a regal event. Tacky? Not a chance!
