Secret Santa sorted

December 21, 2013
I’m sure most of you have had your Christmas parties and Secret Santa, but just in case you have a last-minute gift to buy, I thought I’d share a great Secret Santa gift idea from Lush.
So basically I forgot my Secret Santa gift.  Shame on me. But to be fair, I had been travelling a lot and the whole thing had gone out of my mind.  So I dived out of work to grab a special something for £5.
With a limited budget, I was a little stuck for options.  I went to Accessorize, but nothing was within budget, and anything that exceeded still looked a bit pitiful.  I wanted to get something substantial for my recipient, it is Christmas after all.
So off I went to Lush, where they really saved my blushes with some great Secret Santa gift ideas.
They had a wide array of pre-wrapped gifts to suit all budgets.  Lush-ious gifts including soaps, bath bombs and creams in a variety of themes with different wrapping to suit different personalities.
I did go slightly over-budget by a few pounds.  But it was totally worth it as the gift looked and smelled gorgeous and came within a festive and gorgeous gift wrap and bag.  The gift itself was a parma violet flavoured bath bomb and soap – cute, girly and very appropriate for the girl it was intended for.
Needless to say my recipient – who knew it was from me (are any Secret Santas really a secret?) – absolutely loved the gift.  So all’s well that all ends well.
So if you need a last-minute gift guaranteed to make a good impression, get yourself down to Lush.  There are some lovely pre-packed gifts waiting for you, that could get you out of a sticky bind.
