Ted Baker Beauty Gifts and Boots Christmas Advert 2012

It is that most wonderful time of the year.. the one when all the major stores introduce us to their Christmas adverts. There is quite an air of anticipation when they are due and this year was no different with many adverts broadcast on the same night!

Have you caught the Boots Christmas Advert? I saw it first last week and have to admit that it did put a smile on my face. I felt it was heartwarming and thought the soundtrack music was apt - Elton John's 'Are You Ready For Love?' 

If you haven't seen it - It is a montage of stories showing women and their friends and families giving and receiving gifts, inspiring their loved ones to do things that make them feel good. The tagline is 'let's give gifts that keep on giving' and the final image says 'let's feel good'. The idea being that you give gifts to make the recipient feel good into the year ahead and longer.

Boots used real-life couples and relatives in the advert and I felt that it was demonstrated by the banter between them which appeared really natural.

In the spirit of the advert, the lovely people at Boots have sent me these fabulously affordable beauty gifts from their Christmas Gift Selection.

Ted Baker The Name On Everyone's Lips £15


With flash

A beautifully designed ballerina tin houses 4 crayon style lipstick pens (very much the style of the moment by the look of things!). The choice of shades are wearable, have decent pigment and glide on smoothly.

Ted Baker Precious Partner £12

To be honest I think that this gift is great value just as the cosmetic purse alone. It is a really pretty dark purple satin feel bag with a picture of a dancing ballerina on the front, inside it is lined with a sweet ballerina shoes print.


Scented Votive candle
Origami Hand cream
Body Spray (rose, sandalwood, raspberry and a hint of vanilla)

Both items are available from Boots, as part of the Ted Baker beauty range.

  1. I am in love with this years Ted Baker range! Ballet and beauty are two of my favourite things - what's there not to love? x


  2. Did you know that the TB cosmetics etc are made by Boots?.... I think on a par with No7 :)


Please leave your comments, I love reading them and will reply to all :-)
