You can’t walk down your local high street and fail to notice that Christmas is certainly on its way! The trees are up, the fairy lights are sparkling in the windows, the coffee shops are serving up our fave seasonal treats and the festive gifts are calling our to be snapped up. I love everything about the season (being a Christmas Eve baby it’s hard not to,) but the best thing has to be finding the perfect presents for my loved ones and wrapping them up with total joy; knowing that little box or treat will put a smile on their face is all I need to make the hustle and bustle of the season all worth it. Although there are so many amazing beauty gifts out there to make your friends and family happy, The Body Shop always delivers a huge range of treat and festive fragrances that are hard to resist. If you’re stuck for inspiration or simply don’t know where to begin, having a look at their huge offering is always a great shout – especially as their annual limited edition scents are addictively fabulous. Whether you’re after a few stocking fillers, some Secret Santa gifts or a full blown beauty treat for your bestie, I’ve picked out some of my faves to help you on your shopping journey.
Polar Bear Sleeping Mask (£4.00)
I’m definitely known for giving people sleep masks for Christmas, mainly because they’re so handy ad really help shut out the world when you need a good slumber – but people don’t think to buy themselves one! This is such a cute design and incredibly only a few pounds, so buy them in bulk and hand them out to everyone this festive season…
Soft Hands, Warm Kisses (£9.50)
The Body Shop are undoubtedly known for their hand creams and lip balms, and these little gifts combine the two to give you soft hands and warm kisses. Available in a multitude of their best selling and cult classic scents, this would be a welcome gift no matter their age.
Almond Milk And Honey Beauty Bag (£12.00)
You can’t go wrong with a little pampering treat, and the Almond Milk And Honey range is one of my personal faves. Containing a body butter, hand cream and shower gel (all wrapped up in a re-usable cosmetic pouch) this is perfect for those that love a mini break – or just those who deserve some more exciting body treats than they currently have lingering at home. Available in many other scents too, there’s sure to be one to tickle your fancy.
MID RANGE GIFTS
Frosted Berries Festive Tin (£20.00)
One of the limited edition scents from 2017, Frosted Berries provides a delicious fruity fragrance that can be cherished all year long. This special gift includes a shower gel, body scrub, body butter and hand cream in a cute giant bauble that can be kept for storage or re-used next Christmas. Also available in some of the other festive scents, it’s sure to put a huge smile on anyone’s face.
HOH Limited Edition White Musk Gift Set (£18.00)
Is there another product more synonymous with The Body Shop than their White Musk fragrance? It’s the scent of a generation, but this year it’s been given a new lease of life thanks to a collaboration with fashion designer Henry Holland. It’s fun, vibrant and totally on-trend – but will transport the wearer back to their youth (which is never a bad thing!)
HOH Limited Edition Matte Lip Liquid Collection (£15.00)
Give your loved ones the gift of a fabulous pout this Christmas, packaged in a cute re-useable lip-shaped tin. Three matte liquid lipsticks in nude, dusty pink and berry red ensure their lips will look totally kissable well into the new year; matte lips are so-on trend for AW17 too, making this more than just a beauty treat – it’s a fashion statement too.
SUPER SPECIAL GIFTS
Dial-A-Flavour Body Butter Collection (£30.00)
I adore The Body Shop body butters; I think they were one of the first products from the brand I ever used, and decades later they still provide a moment of luxurious pampering. This gift set includes Almond Milk & Honey, British Rose, Strawberry, Mango and Shea body butters, which will surely be plenty to keep their limbs looking and feeling fab all year long. Which will they choose first?
Vanilla Chai Tin Of Delights (£28.00)
The Vanilla Chai fragrance provides a comforting, warm, subtly sweet and seasonal scent that everyone will love; it’s like a warm Christmas hug in a bottle. Know someone who will love it? Snap up this special box of treats (which includes a shower gel, body butter, bath foam and hand cream) and watch them unwrap with glee.
HOH Limited Edition Wonder Cube (£45.00)
Perfect for anyone who loves their beauty products and adores a little pamper, this special gift st includes some firm favourites alongside some new treats to enjoy: it offers up a Vitamin E cream, Hawaiian Kukui body cream, two soaps, a Mango body scrub, a bunny headband, a polar bear sleep mask and some gold glitter dust. The selection of feel-good treats will be sure to wow the recipient, whether you choose to give it as a pre-Christmas Day treat or leave it under the tree. Or just keep it for yourself…
