Love it or hate it, Christmas is almost here. I’m not embarrassed one bit to say I go completely Christmas crazy this time of year, and have been watching all the calendars being released with eagle eyes.
I’m not sure I could bring myself to spend hundreds on a calendar, but if anyone wants to buy me one I certainly wouldn’t complain. However I do love them and have put together a list of my top 5 favourite ones this year.
This one is hands down my favourite one this year. I love that there are a variety of brands in there, often a lot of these products aren’t usually available in mini sizes so its the perfect one if you fancy trying lots of different products. With brands such as Nars, Drunk Elephant, Sunday Riley, Dr Dennis Gross plus so many more, it’s a skincare lovers dream. Granted it is a little pricey at £250, however if you add up the cost of the products it comes to £600.
This one is one of the most beautifully designed Calendars, a gorgeous treat to open one of the doors every morning. However its worth noting that this is for 12 days and not 24. But none the less a gorgeous treat for the 12 day countdown to Christmas.
A luxurious option from John Lewis featuring some new and iconic beauty brands. With 25 full and trial size products from the likes of Clarins, Charlotte Tilbury, Aveda, Elemis, this is a lovely treat every day in the festive season. In addition to the products, several brands have included invites to receive a complimentary treat or service at one of their John Lewis in store counters.
This is definitely one of the calendars at the lower end of the budget, but still with 24 bestselling L’Occitane products to look forward to and with a luxuriously bright design. With the products worth £85, this one is well worth the pre Christmas treat.
Marks and Spencer always impress me with their offers and this one did not disappoint. With over £280 worth of iconic products inside, you can pick this up for the bargain price of £35, as long as you are spending £35 in store. 24 doors of luxury treats to open in the count down to Christmas for that price, I might just convince myself to buy one… This one is sold out online but I have seen it still available in store.
