Liz Earle Jan Constantine Stocking Skincare Gift Set, £50


You’re never too old for a Christmas stocking and I’d defy anyone not to be thrilled to find this Liz Earle stuffed lovely hanging on the mantle come Christmas morning.


Created exclusively by British designer Jan Constantine, it’s bulging at the seams with goodies including a 50ml Skin Tonic, a tube of Skin Repair Moisturiser, Orange Flower Body Wash, a Botanical Body Cream and one of my beauty staples, the brilliant Cleanse & Polish. Santa’s even remembered to pop in a couple of muslin cloths. The contents are individually wrapped in delicate tissue paper –  a bonus if, like me, you’re a sucker for pretty packaging.


Purchased separately the products alone would cost £46, which means real added value in a quality felt stocking that can be rehung year after year, and which will serve as an annual reminder of a thoughtful gift-giver.
