My Advents Calendar 2015

24 - G I F T - I D E A S
for Christmas 2015
My purpose of Christmas Season is a time and occasion to celebrate Love, to appreciate our Family and to show our appreciation by spending times together, sharing meals and making gifts. Sit together, sing together, write cards to one another, take the time and care to find & prepare small gifts - those are the gestures that make up the 'magic' of christmas time.
To show my appreciation to you as a community and to thank you for all your support - I wish to share Christmas spirit with you by giving every day one gift that I think would make a great christmas gift. Its difficult at times to find suitable gifts for christmas - so one month ago I started collecting all the Products that I thought would make nice gifts - things that I would either love to receive, that I use already or that I think would make nice gifts for someone that I cared about.
Each days gift is revealed daily on my Instagram Feed and every member of the community who wishes to receive it could just place a comment. At the end of the day I selected a 'Winner' by chance & mailed the gift to them in the hope that they would make great use of it.
I thank all the brands who agreed to be part of this Project - without their support it would not have been possible.
- Happy December -

DAY 1 - Le Jardin de Monsieur Li - by Hermes
Description: "I remembered the smell of ponds, the smell of jasmine, the smell of wet stones, of plum trees, kumquats and giant bamboos. It was all there, and in the ponds there were even carp steadily working towards their hundredth birthday."
Le Jardin de Monsieur Li, the fifth fragrance in the Jardin series from Hermès, is an aromatic citrus fragrance, reportedly inspired by a Chinese garden.

DAY 13 - John Frieda Luxurious Volume
Winter Time can easily become 'bad hairday time' if you do not have the right products at hand.

Which is why I am giving away a full set of John Frieda Luxurious Volume Hair Treatment - Shampoo, Styling Mousse and Hairspray: ensuring that your hair will not be flat, damp, dry or drizzy during Festive Season.
DAY 14 - Hennessy Fine de Cognac
When invited to a Christmas Dinner Party a fine drop of alcohol is always a well appreciated gift. Cognac is versatile and makes great use when cooking aswell - especially festive recipe's are great with a touch of spirit.
