CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN DAY 2: CRABTREE & EVELYN GIFTS
One scent that reminds me of Christmas and New Year’s Eve, year after year, is Crabtree & Evelyn’s NOEL home fragrance oil (fab for scenting pine cones or evergreens). I was dog sitting a few Christmasses ago and this oil was on auto-refill on my little oil burner as the three of us – me and two very well behaved four-legged friends – watched Jools Holland on New Year’s Eve (by far the quietest NYE I’ve ever spent, but despite the isolation and remote location, in many ways it was quite special).
I know I’m not the only one who recycles Crabtree & Evelyn’s can’t-throw-away tins and boxes to keep tea, makeup, receipts and all sorts of keepsakes in, they’re just too pretty not to hang on to!
Crabtree & Evelyn’s festive sets always have a vintage, nostalgic and very British feel to them and if you’re just getting around to sorting out your Christmas shopping list, here are some of the highlights from Crabtree & Evelyn’s site, brand new in for gift-giving season:
Noel home fragrance oil £9
Citron Gift Set £36 (worth £46)
Avocado goes glam: Avocado Nail Laquer (stocking filler alert, these are all 3-for-2) £6 each
Moroccan Myrrh: The Ultimate Gift Set £80
How about a different C&E Hand Cream for every month of the year?
The Big Top Twelve Hand Cream Musical Tin £40
Christmas Pudding Biscuits £8.50
Ridiculously pretty packaging, Venetian Violet Flower Water £45
Normally we’d say stay away from the biscuit tin pre-Christmas, but…
Cup of tea and a Biscuit Barrel £18
