With festive season fast approaching, here at Bloomskincare we understand the stress related to choosing the perfect Christmas gift for loved ones, family or friends!!
With so many ways of giving presents, we wanted to give you a little history behind the gift giving of Secret Santa. I’m sure there isn’t a person in the world that hasn’t heard of Secret Santa right?? The tradition of anonymously giving gifts started it’s roots in Scandinavia where it is known as “Julklapp”, in Scandinavian countries tradition was that the giver knocked loudly on the door, open the door, threw the present in the room and leave quickly, or leave the item in a room as they left without being seen by anyone. The idea originated from knecht Rupert or servant Rupert who wandered from house to house giving out gifts, all to serve his master St. Nicholas AKA Santa Claus. The Scandinavian Julklapp tradition also has another unique custom to it, instead of writing the person’s name on the gift, a short funny message is included instead which can be read out to guess whom the present is associated with. This usually fills the room with lots of laughter and joy!
So with gift giving in mind this time of the year, we have put together this perfect guide to choosing the right skincare Christmas gift for your family and friends, either be it for a Secret Santa present or a loving gift.
