Something for everyone: Gift ideas from The Body Shop

TBS title

Well, if you celebrate Christmas, you’re running out of time!

Have everyone done on your gift list except for a few?  I’ve always said The Body Shop and bath and body products in general are the perfect “I didn’t know what to get you” gifts.

I always look forward to the offerings from The Body Shop every year because they always package up the yummiest products and house them in the cutest packaging.

There’s lot more in store, but here are some of my top picks.

cracker and balms

In true Christmas spirit, the Strawberry Festive Cracker (C$10) is sure to be a crowd-pleaser! Wrapped in their signature holidays 2015 packaging, crack it open to unveil the best-selling Strawberry Hand Cream and Gift Soap Heart.

Love sweet scents? The Glazed Apple Shimmer Mist gives you a delicious, sweet scent, complete with shimmer for a double whammy.  Just be careful not to overdo it, you don’t want to overpower yourself in sweetness or in shimmer.

I blogged about this guy already on Wednesday, but the Lippy Star Wand (C$15) is perfect to give or split up amongst friends. This fun candy cane-inspired star wand contains five of The Body Shop’s best-selling lip balms in strawberry, raspberry, satsuma, watermelon, and passionberry.


Looking for gift sets? I love the Oils of Life skincare collection, so I naturally got so excited to see that there was a set available for the holidays.  Known to give a silky-soft feeling to the skin (I’ve been using this stuff since the summer), the Oils of Life collection is infused with three precious seed oils from around the world. Included in this set (C$65) is the Oils of Life Facial Oil (30 ml) and the Oils of Life Cream (50 ml).

Want something that will include everything? The Strawberry Festive Picks (C$26) box includes a rich and creamy body butter and shower gel containing real strawberry seed oil. It also has their popular body scrub (50 ml), soap (100g) and red bath lily, all in the strawberry scent.


If you are looking for a great grooming set for men, the Modern Gent’s Post-Party Rescue Kit will give any guy a winter refresh.  It contains the For Men Maca Root Energetic Face Protector and a mini of the For Men Maca Root Eye Rescue Serum, all housed in a hip red case (so barbershop-esque).

Finally, if you need one last small item for a gift (stocking stuffer?), then the Frosted Plum body care range is The Body Shop’s newest scent. An elegant blend of ripe plum, magnolia, and peony notes, this special-edition range will be sure to make anyone smile.

I also want to note that this year The Body Shop is partnering with international charity WaterAid to help transform lives through access to safe water. For every specially selected gift (including many in this post), WaterAid can provide a family in Ethiopia with one day of safe water.
