These are the gifts that keep on giving far BEYOND CHRISTMAS …
1. A beauty subscription service such as Glossybox will deliver a box of beauty items (both mini and full size) each month; the December box, for example, has excellent eyeliner, charcoal toothpaste, lash primer and more. It’s a good way to discover new brands, and lasts far longer than Christmas. From €14, plus €5 p&p; www.glossybox.ie.
2. We’re big fans of Elizabeth Arden’s Speed Services, such as the mightily effective 15-minute Oxygen Blast facial treatment, which takes place at counter (Debenhams and Arnotts). New services are being added for 2018, including the Tone It UpTown Targeted Treatment – Sculpting (from January 1). We’ve tried it, and it really lifts around the cheekbone and jaw area, giving your face a noticeably fresher look, instantly. Gift someone a voucher and they can drop in for a skin boost at any time during the year.
3. Marram Co shaving creams are beautifully formulated and presented, in colourful tubes – we love Wake Up Call, with vetiver, laurel and lime. Have a 100ml tube delivered every month for six months (€102 including shipping), or a year. See www.marramco.com.
