In place of my traditional holiday gift guides, I’m doing something a little different this year. I’ll still be rounding up my favourite presents for the season, but instead of combining them into a few posts, I’ll be featuring a new company daily. Make sure to check back every day as I’ll be showcasing a new brand and my must-have holiday gifts for the season. I can’t believe Christmas is in 2 days, still looking for last minute gifts, I got you covered.
Probably one of the easiest stores to hit up for last minute holiday gifts is The Body Shop. Whether you are looking to spoil a loved one or treat your friend or co-worker to a fabulous gift, they literary have something for everyone on your list. Male, female, young or old, each gift set is beautifully wrapped and features an array of decadent treats. Also, for every specially selected gift will help provide a family with a day’s supply of safe and clean drinking water. That’s right, it’s the gift that gives back.
The gift I’m probably most excited for is The Body Shop Black Musk Eau De Parfum, and although not really a part of the holiday collection, this is one fragrance you need to smell. I’ve been dying to get my hands on it, ever since I attended a holiday preview a few months back. It’s the perfect dark and desirable fragrance for winter. If you’re a fan of slightly masculine, yet feminine scents, you’ll love this one. It features notes of bambinella pear, intensified by pink pepper and bergamot followed by luscious liquorice and deepened with black vanilla and black musk accords. It retails for $35 for 50ml.
The Body Shop Oils of Life Skincare Collection is the perfect lavish gift for anyone on your list this holiday season. I have an entire review on this amazing collection here, but let’s just say, this collection will leave your skin incredibly silky, smooth and soft. It’s infused with 3 precious seed oils from around the world and includes the Oils of Life Facial Oil and Cream. It retails for $65.
