Xmas Gift Ideas | Make Your Own Xmas Beauty Hamper With Boots

Recently I was contacted by Boots about making my own beauty hamper with christmas just around the corner this was a brilliant idea. Now being a mum of two, youngest 5 months I did think should I take this on, anyway as I love a challenge I thought why not!

Everything needed to create the beauty hamper box was provided along with some generously picked gifts. I'm glad I did decided to take part as it was actually pretty fun to create, in case any of my lovely followers would like to give it a go trust me its very easy and straight forward and lets not forget a great xmas gift idea.

What you will need:
- A plain box.
- Sellotape.
- Scissors.
- Wrapping paper.
- Shredded paper.
- Gifts you want to include.
- Tag's, decorations, bows etc.

1. I started off with laying down some decorative paper inside the box, if you like u can also apply this around the outer box and lid if you have one. 

2. Next we pop in the shredded paper on top of which I layer out my selected gifts, I got some help from the Boots guide video below on how to present them and what a great idea it is to stand them up I found this made my hamper loo even more exciting.

3. next up I placed the clear sheet of plastic paper over the products and neatly sellotaped all the sheet sown securely, you can apply a couple of layers if you feel you want to really secure the products down.

4. I finished off with applying the decorations.

And here we have it my finished beauty hamper, I do admit I would have added more decorating paper to the outer box but as I was limited to what I had this is what I created. I think this is an amazing idea Boots came up with and lets not forget the amazing gifts they provided too! You can simply create your own as you can see it really is very easy to do, you can simply select the gifts around the person who you are gifting it to and put in some goodies they will enjoy.

Don't forget to take advantage of al the different offers Bots have on offer, some of which are 10% off all fragrance and beauty products, Estee Lauder gift for £54 with any purchase from EL, £5 worth of points when you buy 2 products from selected luxury beauty brands. Of course we all also know the famous 3 for 2 offer they hold pretty often, I'm ale excited to see they now stock NYX too. So some amazing gifts with bonuses and lots of offers. Have a nosy at the how-to guide below and let me know if you found this interesting/inspiring or even if you plan on making your own.
