Yes, it’s that time of year again. The silly season is in full swing, Christmas parties are being ticked off, and we’ve got Kris Kringle gifts to sort out.

If you fall into the latter camp (and even if you fall into the former), fear not, we’ve scoured the best beauty offerings, to bring you fail safe Kris Kringle Gift ideas to suit all budgets.
Glasshouse Fragrances Hand Cream Duo
I don’t know about you, but my hands can get a little raggedy around this time of year. Constant cooking, and not enough TLC time can add up to hands that look less than festive. Give the gift of gorgeous hands with the Glasshouse Fragrances Lost in Amalfi and Marseille Memoir Hand Cream Duo. Both hand creams are enriched with shea butter, apricot kernel oil, rosehip oil and aloe vera for super soft, nourished hands. The Lost in Amalfi hand cream is delicately scented with notes of freesia, lavender and lime, reminscent of a sparkling sea-like energy, whilst the Marseille Memoir hand cream embodies edginess and riviera cool with notes of gardenia, sandalwood and casaba melon.
