When I thought to start a Christmas Gift Guide, I decided to not go the way of the limited edition goodies that companies come up with towards the end of the year. Some coffret sets may be of excellent value but I’ve learnt that coffret sets aren’t always full of gems. In fact, I’ve had many coffret sets that contained 1 gem and 5 duds. I prefer to stick to gems not plaster 🙂 [Edit: No offense to anyone might find coffret sets they like and some ARE stuffed with gems – and look pretty to boot! I’m just fussy 😛 ]
So I prefer to create my own gift sets and I wanted to feature something that I might like to receive for Christmas and it may not come in a coffret set or be part of the limited edition Christmas collection.
So, we will have our own gift guide for Christmas – based on gift category and based on my star picks of 2009! I guess you could call this my “Best of 2009 makeup and skincare series” 🙂
