The ultimate gift of beauty: Building the perfect gift hamper

The ultimate gift of beauty is one that contains a selection of things you don’t need, but you absolutely want. These hampers aren’t for the faint-hearted. True beauty lovers (or their Secret Santas) need only apply…


THE ULTIMATE PREP KIT

The practical bits and pieces, from skin to hair to teeth, that any beauty lover will make great use of. Who’d turn down the handbag essential Tangle Teezer, particularly in leopard print? Not me, that’s for sure.
