If you thought Beauty Advent Calendars was as fabulous as it got, think again. More brands are thinking outside of the box when it comes to Christmas, and giving festive baubles and crackers a beauty makeover.

The good news is they’re excellent for gifting bridesmaids or just as fun décor for end-of-year parties. Packed with skincare and beauty minis, use them to trial before the Big Day or as a tiny handbag hero.

Here’s a look at some of the ingenious versions available for 2017.

L'Occitane en Provence
Great things comes in small packages - especially when they're from L'Occitane! There's a variety of crackers on offer this year, each containing three deliciously scented minis. 
Upgrade your tree game with a star-inspired bauble, featuring some of the brand’s iconic scents. The zesty Verbena set includes hand cream, body lotion and a soap shaped like a leaf. Lush!

The skincare legend has released a cracker and bauble. The rose gold cracker (so on trend, darlings) is filled with Kiss Mix Original and Kiss Mix Demure products to leave them juicier than a Christmas turkey.
An Eve Lom Cleanser and a muslin cloth are encased in the diamond-shaped bauble, helping kick start New Year’s skincare regimes.
