10 great gift ideas to help you gain some brownie points with your colleagues

It’s that time of the year again — the time when everyone is frantically gift-shopping for their family, friends, and colleagues.

One of the biggest challenges when you’re shopping for your colleagues is the number of gifts you have to buy without breaking the bank, while giving each one an equal gift to avoid favouritism of any sort.

Our advice? Get gift sets that can be split up among your colleagues and of course, you can keep whatever extras you have!

The best part about these gift sets is personalising these products for each individual and pairing what you think would suit them best. Obviously, these gift sets are also great on their own if you want to show any colleague a little extra appreciation if they’ve helped you out this past year!

Today's Beauty Tip

Your skin can only absorb that much product, so make sure you're not overloading it. If your regime consists for more than seven products, and you notice you can't massage in anymore lotions, it's probably too much, and this can result in irritation.
