AD­VENT CAL­EN­DARS

Move over Choco­late ad­vent cal­en­dars, beauty boxes are be­com­ing a big hit. If you think this fea­ture is too early, and the prices too high, think again. Two of the most iconic beauty cal­en­dars, The Jo Malone colour­ful Ge­or­gian town­house, £300 and the lust­wor­thy Lib­erty ver­sion, £169, are sold out al­ready. Sel­fridges are the next best port of call for the musthave lux­ury cal­en­dars, with ex­clu­sive of­fer­ings from Kiehl’s, £110; Clinique, £75 (pic­tured) and the one that’s on my Santa wish­list - Diptyque’s, for £300. Pretty as a pic­ture of­fer­ings are the Marks & Spencer box, £35 when spend­ing £35 in store - a fan­tas­tic of­fer as the prod­ucts in­cluded in the dinky lit­tle houses are worth over £250. The Clarins 12-Day Ad­vent Cal­en­dars come in men and women’s ver­sions at £60 each so you can gift them to each other. Fra­grance lover? Molton Brown’s Cab­i­net of Scented Lux­u­ries, £165 is a trea­sure trove of their clas­sics pep­pered with some new of­fer­ings to ex­plore. Skin­care ad­dicts should look to ver­sions from Mavala, £45 or Liz Earle’s 12 Day Ad­vent of­fer­ing, £66 which serves as a great in­tro­duc­tion to the brand. Beauty junkies should head di­rectly to Charlotte Til­bury’s Naughty and Nice Magic Box, £150 filled with cult beauty prod­ucts to brighten up De­cem­ber day by day or in one gi­ant door open­ing frenzy.
