For me, Christmas is all about receiving and giving gifts you wouldn’t necessarily buy for yourself, whether it’s that new face serum that’s always a little out of your budget or that beauty product that’s cheap and cheerful that you don’t really need. There really is nothing better than opening something you don’t want to spend your own money on, as cheeky as it sounds.
