Back in August (yes, I know, it’s taken me a while to get to this… but with good reason) I attended an amazingly fun event hosted by The Body Shop. Why did it take me so long to get to this? The event showcased The Body Shop Holiday offerings and gift ideas, and I decided I would wait until now to share them with you so they would be fresh in your mind. Hopefully you can get some great gift ideas out of this, or you can always choose to grab an item or two for yourself. You know, to help deal with the holiday season. *Also – Canadian readers looking to grab anything may want to try heading to your nearest store for Black Friday – from what I’ve heard you can look forward to a 3/$30 sale and an amazing gift bag for $25 with a $30 purchase! I’m probably going to be stocking up on some Satsuma body butter this Friday…
Anyways, as always, The Body Shop is going to be bringing out some amazing gift sets which are perfect for giving joy this season. A few of my favourites:
- Ginger Sparkle Shower, Scrub & Moisture Collection, $20 (limited edition scent) contains Ginger Sparkle Body Butter, Shower Gel and Body Polish. Not overwhelmingly ginger-y and with the tiniest hint of citrus, I’ve really become taken with the Ginger Sparkle line. Oh, and it’s housed in an adorable gingerbread man tin.
- Cranberry Joy Body & Lip Care Collection, $50 (limited edition scent) is perfect for someone in need of pampering. This set comes with a Cranberry Joy Body Butter, Body Polish, Shower Gel and Lip Balm and smells fruity and fresh.
- Born Lippy Fruity Lip Balms Set, $20 is perfect for stuffing stockings. Packaged in a lollipop box, this set contains 5 moisturising lip balms – perfect timing to help someone get rid of the chapped lips winter just loves to bring.
- The Joyful Gingerbread House, $20 is a really unique gift which comes with Cranberry Shower Gel and Body Butter, Ginger Sparkle Shower Gel and Body Butter and a Mini Crinkle Lily. The schoolhouse boxes this comes in were designed and handmade by artisans at Get Paper Industries, which is a traditional handmade paper products co-operative in Kathmandu, Nepal.
And to help put you on Santa’s nice list, all purchases made help out The Body Shop’s School Project. How does it work? $300,000 from the sales of these and other Christmas gifts will help to build 5 schools around the world in areas where The Body Shop has Community Fair Trade Partners – Ghana, Honduras, Nepal and Northern and Southern India. I think this is a fantastic idea – when you buy someone a gift, you aren’t only giving joy to them, but you’ll be helping to give a child in one of the locations the gift of education.
Besides these gift sets, The Body Shop has other great products which will make lovely gifts or stocking stuffers (including the totally adorable Festive Reindeer Sponge) – check out a few of my favourites below!
