Give the gift of pampering
In place of traditional holiday gift guides, that feature multiple products by multiple brands, I’m doing something a little different. I’ll be rounding up my favourite presents for the season, but each day I’ll be showcasing a different company. Make sure to check back daily as I’ll have a new brand with my must-have holiday gifts for the season.
Let L’Occitane pamper you and your loved ones this holiday season with luxurious gift sets that capture the essence of the Provencal beauty.

It’s your one-stop shopping destination for everyone on your list. Family, friends, colleagues and neighbors, spread holiday cheer with this unique and body-loving treats.
L’Occitane Almond Collection Set features the brand’s coveted almond oils, sourced from the Haute-Provence, to help moisturize and beautify the skin. The luxurious gift set comes with their oh-so famous Almond Shower Oil, Milk Concentrate, Supple Skin Oil, Delicious Bar Soap and Delicious Hand Cream. When the almond shower oil meets the water, it is transformed into a silky soft, lavish and luxe, soapy lather. It instantly leaves your skin feeling fresh, clean and satiny smooth. Immediately after getting out of the shower (or bath) drench yourself in almond milk concentrate. It’s enriched with powerful almond extracts to help moisturize and hydrate. It instantly melts into your skin and keeps it nourished and conditioned for upwards of 48 hours. The supple skin oil is formulated with 50% almond oil to give a lightweight, yet incredibly effective way to hydrate the skin. It’s perfect on those days when your skin is feeling extra parched. The delicious soap is formulated with crushed almond shells to help gently exfoliate the skin. Finish off with delicious hand cream to keep hands and fingers super soft the entire day. It melts into the skin within seconds for all day moisturization. It retails for $78.
