You'd think that in October, it would pain us to throw on our Santa hats and hum along to Jingle Bells, but one foot inside Boots Ireland's 'Winter Wonderland' Christmas preview event and any Grinch-like reluctance goes out the window. Should the idea of Christmas shopping for your nearest and dearest send you into a tizzy, rest assured you can tick everyone off your list under the one roof at Boots.
From the sprawling, spa-worthy Liz Earle options (available in larger Boots for Christmas) to a brand new offering from Orla Kiely (who makes her first high street foray into the world of beauty) and the gorgeously packaged gift sets from Ted Baker at prices that won't increase your blood pressure to the wealth of choice for the men in your life, Boots have got you covered. What's more, every budget is catered to here; whether you've got five stockings to fill at €20 a pop or you've got a teen with a Jack Wills obsession. Boots has a knack for making the brands that may seem ?out of reach?ordinarily feel more accessible. We're particularly tempted by the Michael Kors fragrances and the make-up palettes from Smashbox. And don't get us started on the gadgets; from Clarisonic to No.7's facial cleansing alternative, a fun-filled Christmas morning's in store.
With mince pies and festive tunes, it's safe to say the build up to Christmas has officially begun. Time to get writing those wishlists, folks.
For now, browse our gallery of pics to see all of the happy faces at this one-of-a-kind event.
Stay tuned for gift guides galore including top picks from Boots, price points and more.
