I am not sure about you but I surely do wait for adverts to come through during the festive season. They're usually just so cute and make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside however clichéd that sounds. If you are a regular reader, you might also be aware of the fact that I am obsessed with tele adverts and have been since I was a kid, with my dad taping ads for me on a video tape (good old times!) for whenever I got bored.
Boots do unique Christmasy ads each year with their last year one being my absolute favourite! I like how they make normal people relate to the real life scenarios depicted in it without pushy sales and commercial advertising.
Before moving on to the advert, I had to show you these gorgeous goodies I have from Boots which would make superb presents.
The Ted Baker gift set is so pretty both in its purple coloured case and packaging. I love it when presents come gift wrapped as it saves so much hassle. It comes with four sheer lipsticks inside which resemble Clinique Chubby Sticks to quite an extent. Regardless, the shades are festive, subtle, moisturising yet wearable with a hint of shimmer shot through two of them for that glam factor. I can see any girly girl squealing with joy at the sight of this as a present!
Another gorgeous gift set from Boots is by FCUK, containing a coin purse/mini wallet, a nail varnish and a lip gloss. The nail varnish is a Christmasy classic red, one that will not fail to compliment any outfit or occasion, along with a dusky mauve lip gloss with shimmer dashed through it.
The coin purse is undoubtedly my favourite from this set as it's so spacious, chic and useful when you don't want to carry your wallet to places and just want to cram in some change and a few notes. I would definitely take it to my next holiday where I don't want to carry credit cards and all that jazz.
And finally, here's the Boots Christmas advert for 2012 that shall be revealed further in extension of these scenarios gradually by Boots, so be sure to check their Facebook page where they constantly update.
This has made me want to go to their website and select a few presents for friends and family and see what's there on offer. Where do you usually shop for Christmas pressies?
