The giving season is in full flow. It started, in fact, before Halloween – a fact I was assured of when I nipped into Poundland to buy some fake spiders on October 30 to find the spooky stuff already cleared from the shelves, replaced with tinsel and those creepy Elf-on-the-Shelf characters who look like they come alive at night and will try to suffocate you in your sleep.
As it has been a totally demented, nonsense and frightening year, I am determined to put some meaning into my gift-giving this Christmas. How? I will be shopping for presents for my nearest and dearest that give back to charity. Because it will make me feel good, it will make them feel good, and it will do good too.
Here’s my round-up of great beauty gifts that give back.
