By the time Christmas actually gets here, I’m going to be sick and tired of pine trees and mulled wine. Nah, who am I kidding? I love it so much I’d happily live in a Winter Wonderland 365 days of the year – that’s both the upside and downside of being a Christmas Eve baby, being forever entwined with a holiday that’s all about the chocolate, candles and champagne. As we approach the festive season there are always Christmas dinners and celebrations galore, but it all kicked off for me with a beautiful display and tonnes of French pampering treats courtesy of L’Occitane – undoubtedly one of my favourite brands ever. This year there are even more beautiful gift sets and holiday treats than ever, all offering great savings and wrapped up in delectable packaging so you don’t even have to battle with the sellotape. Unlike a lot of brands that just wack a couple of products in a box and call it a gift (you can read more about my thoughts on what really makes a Christmas collection exciting here,) L’Occitane curate covetable collections that make gift giving as much fun as gift receiving. With prices starting at as little as £10.00 for a festive bauble (which includes three minis) there’s something for everyone in your family and a gift to suit every budget.
It’s undeniable that L’Occitane have created some cult classic ranges – including their nourishing Shea Butter collection, delicious Amande which is enriched with almond oil, Cherry Blossom which is like spring in a bottle, as well as their classic Divine skincare and new fragrance additions that include Neroli & Orchidee. Whether you want to treat a loved one to their favourites, or introduce them to something you’ll think they’ll love, L’Occitane has created a gift just for them that includes best selling and firm favourite products. I adore the baubles and crackers (both £10.00) as little ways to show your mates you care, but the slightly bigger gifts are the ones to get in a tizz about; with savings of over £30.00 on some of the sets, you’re sure to get a really great deal too.
Before I blogged I used to get a L’Occitane gift every Christmas because I adored the Cherry Blossom scent and would stock up when I knew my loved ones could get a great offer; I’d often mosey around and pick myself up some little treats too (all in the name of saving, not spending you understand) to ensure I was prepared for the months ahead. Although my photos in a dimly lit (but very atmospheric) restaurant don’t do them justice, I urge you to go and have a browse at some of the great gifts on offer. There are too many to mention individually, but all you need to know is they’re pretty, full of great body treats and offer fab savings too. I’ve credit an edit of my faves below, just for you… Are you sold already?
The L’Occitane Christmas Collectin is available now, in stores and online. Prices start from £10.00.
