It’s that time of the year again!
Christmas and let’s face it, present time!
Buying presents is never really an issue for most when it comes to close family and friends but when it comes to acquaintances, the person who bought you a present and now you feel obligated to buy them one or even your work Secret Santa – that’s when the pressure starts building.
No one wants to be known as the terrible present giver.
So I’ve compiled a short but sweet list of some great stocking fillers and last minute gifts to take some of the worry out of your Christmas shopping!
The Body Shop
For the skin care, lotions and potions lover in your life, The Body Shop is the place to go!
You can pick up mini body butters, hand creams, face masks – the works!
