Between now and Christmas, Boots is running a different weekly offer, entitled its “gift of the week”, offering customers a chance to pick up some Christmas gifts (I cry, honestly, silent tears at the thought that people are buying Christmas presents in October) ahead of time.

This week’s special offer is the Ted Baker Girliest Convenience Vanity Case, which is running at €25, instead of the usual €55. It’s filled with full-sized products from the Ted Baker collection, including a fragrance, a body wash, a body soufflé, body spray and a scented candle. In short, it’s the perfect gift for, well, a teenage girl you don’t know all that well (did anyone else receive Body Shop pack after Body shop pack for Christmas as a teen?!).

For me, the really special part of this gift is the hat box – which is massive, and beyond gorgeous. I have a hat box I got with my Marc Jacobs Lola fragrance (which is almost gone, hint hint, Santa), and I use it to store my bangles – as well as to jazz up my cosmetics counter, natch. It really is absolutely gorgeous and, in my opinion, worth the €25 on its own. Granted, the contents will also make your bathroom cabinet look fancy, if, by some chance, your bathroom cabinet isn’t already packed full to bursting with random products from every brand you’ve ever heard of (or is that just me?!).
