Christmas Shopping for the Family – Ash’s Picks

It’s Christmas time again, and in between running around the busy Escentual warehouse, I have to find some time to shop! Rather than have everything beauty and grooming related, this year I’ve shaken it up a bit more. Here are my Christmas shopping picks for my mum, dad, brother Benj and my sister Georgina..

My mother always puts my present budget into the red. She knows what she likes (a lengthy list) and I know it too! However I know that buying her the Miss Dior Originale Eau de Toilette will make her ecstatic. Even though I buy it for her whenever a gift is needed, at least I know that she will love it!

The fuss pot of the family. Nothing is wrong but not quite good enough either. Try asking what he wants? Still never quite sure. So this year I might get him a journal so that he can write his ideas down ready for next year along with any other musings he may have. A leather journal will be perfect for him.

Having a football crazy brother makes Christmas an easier proposition. A shirt or mug has usually got me by and a Manchester United advent calender is a nice treat for him every year! However this time, I thought I would make an extra effort and make it something useful. He is a tradesman so a nice tool box should go down well, plus some Carolina Herrera 212 VIP for when he goes out after work.

My sister enjoys any gift that she receives at Christmas…or any other time of the year, especially when it is beauty or fragrance-related! I spoiled her last year with far too many gifts bought from the workplace, so this year I may have to be a little more creative, and pretty. I thought a quirky jewellery holder might do the trick, plus I will limit myself to repurchasing the Van Cleef & Arpels Oriens and the bareMinerals Smoky Eye Tutorial, seeing as she loved them so much last year.
