How is it Christmas seems to come round sooner and sooner, with each passing year? The Christmas lights are illuminating in towns and cities across the country. Winter Wonderland is open once again* in London’s Hyde Park. Christmas gift lists are starting. The heat (or cold) is on… and we’re here to help. Mum, grandma, dad, sister, best friend, work colleague… We’ve come up with a handful of gift ideas to help set you on your way to getting your Christmas shopping sorted.
Neroli and Lime Leaves Eau de Toilette, £10
Give mum the gift of sunshine in a bottle with this beautiful floral fragrance with notes of neroli, fresh lime leaves, jasmine and precious woods. Neroli scents are clean, fresh and floral without being too flowery and this is a wonderfully light, fresh and modern version that’s super-easy to wear. Mum will love it. Match with the corresponding scented soap (imprinted with a wreath of flowers, echoed on the outer box). And how about the scented drawer liners too, to add a pretty touch to drawers and shelves.
