‘Tis the season to overindulge, but one area we could do with cutting back on this Christmas is spending! Christmas time often sees a last-minute dash to the shops to pick up presents you know are going to get re-gifted eventually. Make sure your presents are all winners this year with LloydsPharmacy’s hand-picked Christmas gift collection, full of essentials to make sure everyone on your list gets a gift they’ll actually enjoy. It’s time to say #HelloChristmas and goodbye stress!


We’ve enough bath bombs to see us through the next 10 winters, so when we saw that LloydsPharmacy was offering all of our favourite brands under one roof, at affordable prices and we can even create our own personalised hampers, we couldn’t resist buying the products we know people will actually love.
