The ONE Christmas present women do not want to receive this year

There is one Christmas gift you must avoid when shopping for the women in your life this year – and you will see them in the gift section of almost every store.  

Tiny bottles of perfumed moisturiser, sparkling body soap and perfume from a brand making one-off Christmas-theme gift packs are not popular with the ladies.

In fact a Facebook post asking people not to give them to the women in their lives has been shared almost 300,000 times – proving how unpopular the products are.

‘One bottle or tub of something gorgeous the person already loves is so much better than these little bottles,’ one woman recommended.
