Vivabox: The Perfume Shop
If you're struggling to think of a Christmas present for a loved one, or struggling with what to ask for this year then look no further, I think I have found one of the best ideas wether you're looking to buy for a boyfriend/girlfriend, best friend, Mum or Dad!
The Vivabox is exclusively available to buy from The Perfume Shop and comes in a set 'for him' or 'for her'. I saw Lily Tweeting about these a couple of days ago, and went straight out to buy this one to give to my boyfriend.
The box is really nicely packaged as a set of reusable slide out drawers, comes with seven samples of aftershave/perfume which are The Perfume Shop's 'Top Picks'. (I realise the photo I have uploaded only shows six samples... I didn't realise my boyfriend had taken one out with him until after I took the photos... I will replace the photo once I've had chance to take another!) The samples range from 1ml - 2 ml in size (the perfect size to carry about in a purse or a pocket on a night out). You also get a brochure filled with information and promotional images for each sample and best of all, you get a voucher which entitles you to a full size bottle of whichever scent you decide you like the best - how cool?!
In the box for him you get samples of: Issey Miyake 'L'Eau d'Issey', Hugo Boss 'Boss Orange Man', Carolina Herrera '212 VIP Men', Givenchy 'Play', Diesel 'Only The Brave Tattoo', Hugo 'Just Different' and Montblanc 'Legend'.
In the box for her you get samples of: Nina Ricci 'Nina', Juicy Couture 'Viva La Juicy', Lacoste 'Touch Of Pink', Boss 'Orange', Givenchy 'Very Iresistable', Elizabeth Arden 'Red Door' and Paco Rabanne 'Lady Million'.
No more guessing which aftershave or perfume your loved one would like, no more duplicate bottles as presents and no more stress. This really does make present buying easy, because in the end they get to choose what they want, and it's better than just getting a voucher because you actually have a physical present to hand over.
The Vivabox costs £34.99 (for hers) and £37.99 (for him) although if you buy in store in the near future (I'm not sure how long the offer is for) I saved 10% yesterday on an offer on gift sets.
If you buy in store, you can also have the box gift wrapped for free.
I definitely recommend these, and I'll be asking for a box for myself from Santa... in fact I'd be happy to receive more than one, so that I could choose a few perfumes!
