Boots' Star Gifts for Christmas: Week 1

With only 12 weeks to go until the season you either love or love to hate, Boots have come up with an initiative to help save you money and make Christmas shopping easier by spreading it out over the weeks before- sounds good, right?! Each week in the run-up to Christmas, Boots will feature a Star Gift, costing less than half price.

We got our hands on the first of the 12 Star Gifts and it's a doozy (My mam actually texted me in excitement/envy when it arrived; she's a big Boss fan!)! Down from €79.99 to a reasonable €39.50, the Hugo Boss Orange Beauty Set contains a full size (50ml) Boss Orange Woman Eau de Toilette, Boss Orange Woman Shower Gel and Body Lotion (both 50ml), a compact mirror, a cosmetic bag and a set of 4 make-up brushes (A bit of a random inclusion but, they are lovely travel-sized soft brushes in a brushed canvas holder!).

The set itself is definitely worth the €80 it usually costs so, to get it for €40 is a major steal and would make a great present for a mam, sister or aunt. The perfume is very feminine and sweet with definite fruity notes- peach being the most predominant for me, and a distinct warmth making it perfect for the winter months. This Star Gift will be on offer in Boots stores nationwide until Thursday 13th!

  8. Bursting laughing at the first comment, you're gas! I don't know if I'll go for this one, but I'll be keeping a close eye out to see this year's soap & glory offering!! (if there is one, fingers crossed!) Can't believe they're starting their offers already...
