Worst Christmas Presents

1. Golf Clubs

NO WAY

“My nan saw my brother as the golden child which meant he got everything he wanted and, to be fair, I got the same but cheaper. One year he wanted golf clubs, so guess what I got…”

NO WAY

“My secret santa specially ordered me a DVD of the Apprentice – it even had extra scenes”

Swap the frogs for a prince with our fave Lipstick Queen blusher – the green changes to create a bespoke pink hue, perfect for your skin tone.
