I put my Christmas tree up at the end of November. (Actually, I put two Christmas trees up. Yes, we are a two tree family - I spend 75% of December hoovering.) I just love this time of year so much that I wanted the festivities to start early. 

As a beauty editor, I've actually been thinking about Christmas since July, because that's when we first clap eyes on the iconic beauty advent calendars that will be dropping for Christmas. My job puts me in the very fortunate position of seeing the industry's incredible Christmas gifts and let me tell you, this year it's all about the luxury beauty gifts. 

Whilst I know that this year has been particularly tough, I want to shop smartly and efficiently and instead of spending lots of money on multiple presents I want to gift (and be given, let's be frank with one another) a high quality beautiful present that I will love for years to come. 

Which is why I enlisted the help of my fellow beauty expert, Marie Claire's Executive Beauty Editor, Shannon Lawlor to compile a list on the best luxury beauty gifts of 2023. We have spent time in our beauty cupboard and come up with what we think is the ultimate luxury beauty list that would put a smile on anyone's face.
