I read Viva Woman’s post last week about whether her readers liked to gift beauty products, where the comments were quite a mixed bag; and I was surprised to see it was mostly no.
I, however, personally do. I love giving nice beauty items I like or that the recipient may not normally buy for themselves, because I feel that beauty items are an self indulgence. It’s a way to spoil someone because it’s for them and them alone, unlike a box of chocolates that is usually shared 🙂 That said, like everything else, gift giving and the reasons behind it are a personal thing so there’s no right or wrong way.
However my question to you is, do you like RECEIVING beauty products as gifts?
I do (naturally!) 😀 It’s always fun to play with something new or perhaps something you’ve been wanting to try but didn’t get round to. Bath and body products are always nice, as is something tailored to your likes; like a nail polish or lipstick colour you like, or something that pushes you out of your comfort zone.
Of course they aren’t the only gifts I like receiving. To me, a gift is something personal so anything at all is a good gift because it means the giver thought enough of you to give you something at all! 🙂
Your say: Do you like receiving beauty products as gifts? Or perhaps you think it too personal because of scent, ingredients, colour preference etc and would prefer receiving non beauty items?
