During the holiday season you’re bound to see mountains of gift sets displayed at every department store. Delicious combinations of fragrances, bath products and beauty creams make for the perfect present of pampering. Though the packaging tends to be colorful, feminine and glitzy, most of them don’t entice me to buy. But that’s because I much prefer the look of packaging from the past! I just can’t resist any beauty product that’s boxed up to look like something out of an old apothecary or even a Woolworth’s store in the 1950s.
Check out these vintage holiday gift set ads to see what I mean. They’re adorable!
See what I mean? But good luck trying to find any of these original sets,especially intact and in great condition! So I did a little research to see if I could find any modern gift sets that evoke that same warm and fuzzy nostalgic feeling. And here’s what I came up with. Beautifully packaged in all their vintage girly girl glory!
