By Invitation is Michael Bublé's debut female fragrance and was created as love letter to his loyal base of female fans. And now in time for Christmas, four festive gift sets have been launched. One of them is the By Invitation (100ml) + Body Lotion (150ml) gift set which is priced at £55 and would make a great gift. I have tried the By Invitation perfume and love it. The packaging is stunning and the fragrance itself is finely crafted. The perfume was developed in collaboration with French perfumer Karine Dubreuil-Sereni and is very feminine, sensual, dreamy and spicy! It smells divine. The gift set featuring this perfume will definitely be a well-received gift.

Curlformers styling kit will make a lovely gift for any lady, I feel. Curlformers help to create beautiful, smooth curls without any heat damage. Curlformers come in three styles - Corkscrew (tightest curl), Spiral, and Barrel (widest curl) and are an easy way to get glossy, beautiful and long-lasting curls and they work on all hair types.
I have tried the Corkscrew Curls Long Styling Kit and liked it. The kit contains 40 long and narrow Curlformers, 2 styling hooks, instructions and a lovely satin vanity bag. The first time I used it, I took a lot of time as I had never used something like this before. But with each use, it got easier. It is actually great fun and easy to use once you know the technique. I have shoulder length hair and the Curlformers kit gave me lovely, soft curls without any heat damage.
