Beauty Gifts: Mirrors

We’re very fond of a stylish mirror that pops neatly into a handbag. It would be very cheering to take one of these mirrors out on, say, a miserable train journey to check your lipstick, lashes or powder situation (Southern Rail should really be dishing these out for free).

The Kate Spade New York Telephone Compact Mirror is gorgeous (£31). Flip it open and practice saying “Kensington 341, please, operator” in your best Celia Johnson.

We’re huge fans of Andrea Garland’s quirky designs, and she’s got a simple handbag mirror for £4 – a perfect stocking filler. If you love her designs but want something more substantial, there are flip-open compact mirrors from £30.

A brilliant gift for anyone who travels regularly.
