My Pick of the Christmas Gift Sets - Boots Edition

There is nothing I love more at this time of year than browsing the newly arrived gift sets ready for Christmas.  Here is what I have my eye on from Boots.  Remember, most gifts from Boots are available on their 3 for 2 promotion too!

Star Gift c.£17
Every week, keep your eyes peeled for the Boots Star Gift - this is a gift set that has an extra reduction and usually works out at amazing value. This week is a complete make up set from Seventeen - the perfect present for someone just starting off with make up - maybe someone who reads #theSOproject!  It's only £17 for soo much stuff and although it is one of the cheapest brands around, it is a great capsule collection.

Soap and Glory £10 - £60
I have received a S&G gift set at Christmas for the last couple of years and they have seen me right through to the next year.  There is a massive range of sets available, from a bit of everything (The Yule Monty) to specific ranges (manicure, lips etc).

Lee Stafford Big Fat Healthy Hair Kit £18
A fab range of Lee Stafford products including rollers and mousse among plenty of others.  There are sets for every hair type too.

Benefit Little Love Potions £29.50
This is an amazing selection of mini Benefit products including The POREfessional, Posie Tint, High Beam, Stay Don't Stray and many more at just under £3 each!

No7 The Skincare Collection £16
I'm really loving No7 skincare at the moment - their eye make up remover is my current favourite and their cleansers and toners are lovely.  This is a great selection that is a good starter kit or great for travelling.

I am a massive fan of Origins - I love so much of their stuff and always seem to find a new favourite every time I visit a counter!  I tend to buy Origins from house of Fraser but Boots now stock them and have a great range of gift sets to suit everybody.  This set combines 3 of their best face masks (Clear Improvement, Drink Up and Drink Up Overnight) which are all amazing!

Twinings Cosy Mug £7.50
I am a sucker for tea and coffee related gifts and this mug is just adorable!

I love Laura Ashley, love stationery and love the colour.  A winner in my eyes!

Foodie gifts are a great option for Christmas gifts and Boots do a great range.  These Italian ones are lovely and they also have Indian, Thai, Moroccan and Chinese options so choose the cuisine that the person you are buying for loves the most!  I like to put together little hampers - use one of the gifts as a base (or for ideas) then get some ingredients and a cookery book to match and bundle it all up together.

It's great to have something like this ready to whip out over Christmas as a way to perk everyone up after far too much food.  Not too challenging but not so easy that they are boring! 

Are there any products you love from the Boots selection?

Where do you love shopping for Christmas gifts?
