Hello there my little festive elves! Christmas shopping season is upon us, and before I start churning out my gift guides (aka not-so-subtle hints to my family members of what I’d like to receive come December 25th, please and thanks), I decided to dedicate a full post to this oh-so-cute little gift that plopped through my letterbox last week. Looking for a quirky present for the girl who has EVERYTHING? Look no further than the lovechild of flower delivery company Bloom & Wild and beauty box giants Birchbox: the Birchtree.
The Birchtree is a tree that, like all Bloom & Wild plants and flowers, is delivered right through your letterbox. As well as being beautifully packaged and cute like their other products, the collab with Birbchbox means that the Birchtree also comes complete with five luxury beauty products. You attach these to the branches of your tree and voila – you’ll never want normal baubles again.
The products included are from some of the best beauty brands in the country, and consist of makeup, skincare and perfume bits. So if you’re lucky enough to receive (*cough* or just buy yourself *cough*) the Birchtree, then you’ll be the happy owner of the Caudalie Instant Detox Mask, Rituals Magic Touch Body Cream, Benefit the POREfessional, Lord & Berry Red Lipstick and Givenchy Live Irrésistible Eau De Parfum. Seriously, I don’t think Father Christmas himself could deliver anything better.
The Birchtree is one of the quirkiest and cutest Christmas gifts I’ve heard of recently, and I think it’s such a good idea for beauty lovers. The minis are all a surprisingly good size, so it’s also a really practical gift as well as a pretty one. It costs £30 (currently reduced to £25) and can be picked up here alongside a range of other letterbox bouquets and trees. Of course I already have my Birchtree so this is NOT one of my hinty Christmas gift posts, but er, if anyone reading this would like to get me anything from Bloom & Wild in the future then the Scandi inspired Sadie bouquet really has my name written all over it. Ta.
