You’ll find it hard not to be tempted to open them before Christmas

Are you looking for something a little different to hang on your tree this year? Plain ol’ baubles are so last Christmas – this year it’s all about the ones with gifts inside.

Whether it’s a mini hand cream, lip balm or make-up that you’re after, these five beauty baubles will cover all of your festive-hanging needs – and make for great stocking fillers to open on Christmas Day.

Our beauty team have picked their favourites from a rather hefty bunch, and here’s what they think of them…

MAD Beauty Bauble

What’s in it: Lip gloss baubles in caramel, cherry, vanilla and strawberry flavour. Pop your favourites up on the tree.

Beauty writer Zoe says: So sweet. My favourite is the caramel, but I’ll be putting up all four this Christmas. They are quite small, but for £2.99, they’re beautiful bargains.

Heathcote Ivory Baubles

What’s in it: A very handy kit – it has a 15ml hand sanitiser and hand cream inside, both in a ylang ylang and vanilla scent.

Zoe says: Such a steal. Really pretty to look at, and we all need a sanitiser to keep the winter lurgy away.

Caudalie Bauble

What’s in it: This grape and vegetable oil formula can be used to moisturise nails, hair and skin, or to put in the bath.

Zoe says: I love this oil – I use it on my hair to tame any split ends or fly-aways. I think any beauty lover would appreciate this on their tree.

L’Occitane Bauble

What’s in it: A mini body lotion, shower gel and a hand cream in a hanging tin – all from the cherry blossom fragrance collection.

Zoe says: You get a lot for your bauble here, and it’s all things I’d actually use – although I worry it might be a little heavy for the branch. The hand cream is a perfect handbag size, and they all smell lovely.

Baylis Harding Baubles

What’s in it: Three baubles of shower creams and lotions. There’s a Sweet Mandarin & Grapefruit duo, a Midnight Rose, and Midnight Fig & Pomegranate.

Zoe says: Luxe looking, but two of them have a shower gel and a shower créme inside – basically the same thing. Only the fig bauble has a shower gel and a body lotion, which I’d rather have.
