Bespoke Christmas Beauty Hamper with Boots

When it comes to Christmas presents, DIY beauty hampers are my speciality. I just love putting together a bespoke selection of products for the recipient to match their taste. Yes, you can buy ready hampers and gift sets, but it is so much more special when you make it yourself. 

I was kindly sent a variety of beauty products and all the supplies by Boots to help me prepare a Christmas hamper full of amazing goodies and I had soo much fun making it. I think the final result looks awesome! I also included a video, where you can see how to make your own hamper.

To make a hamper similar to this one you will need :

-a box wrapped in gift wrap
-tissue paper
-paper stuffing
-gift tag
-normal and double sided tape
-products you decide to include in the hamper

 Start by wrapping your box in a nice Christmassy paper. Fill it with some paper stuffing and either put a bit of tissue paper on top, or just stack your products straight on top of it, like I did. 

Start with bigger items as a base and continue with smaller ones and tiny things like lipstick, mascara etc on top. You can easily secure it in place with double sided tape to make sure it doesn't move around. 

Once you're happy with the layout of your items, wrap the full thing with cellophane and tape with clear tape.

Add a ribbon, a bow and a gift tag and you're done. So simple!

You can use products bought separately, or take extra items out of other gift sets like I did. It's totally up to you.

Et voilĂ !

Here is the fab video, showing you how to make the hamper. You can also see a great step by step guide here.

Have you ever tried making a DIY beauty hamper for someone? Will you give it a go this year?

  2. Its a great idea ! Having said that I did a similar thing last year but with foods such as home made crackers, chocolate, cheese etc. it went down a treat with my family and friends. :)

  3. This looks sooo good! I always do gift boxes but not half as high end as this! Presents always look so much prettier like this xx
