Holiday Gift Guide for the Last Minute Shopper: Indulgent Bath and Body Care Gift Sets


The holiday season is in full swing. Can you believe it’s 5 days till Christmas Eve? But if you’ve been too busy decking the halls to pick your gifts, don’t sweat! I’ve got you covered. As much as I love skincare and make-up, I just love taking a chill pill and love indulgent bath and body products that gives you the ultimate beauty sleep. Here are just few of my favourite sets perfect for the season of giving. 

First stop, I’m sure Christmas gifting ain’t complete without the much loved French beauty brand l’Occitane. L'Occitane favoured natural products and organic, ethical and sustainable farming methods long before these things became fashionable. Over the years, L’Occitane en Provence has created new beauty products containing fabulous properties derived from plants. Their bestseller, Divine Cream, is built around the immortelle flower which is organically framed for the brand in Corsica – because only the soil there produces a variety of the plant with a high enough concentration of neryl acetate, the anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, collagen-boosting active ingredient. I mean really, whats not love with this brand? Have your tried their Neroli & Orchidee range? Smells so heavenly!



This Christmas, L’OCCITANE en Provence has created an irresistible gift collection that promises to make this year’s shopping spree a fun and joyful celebration for the senses. From luxurious skincare products to irresistible scents and textures that ignite the spirit, these generous gifts will delight both men and women. Every L’OCCITANE treasure breathes the life and soul of Provence and makes a thoughtful, magical and inspiring gift. 

This year my favourite gift set was composed with some of the most cherished scents and textures made famous by L’OCCITANE, this gift combines their best-selling body care products in one irresistible box. This luxurious collection includes: 

• 250ml Almond Shower Oil 
• 250ml Cherry Blossom Shower Gel
• 100ml Lavender Foaming Bath
• 100ml Almond Milk Concentrate
• 75ml Shea Butter Hand Cream 
• 30ml Shea Butter Foot Cream 
• 7.5ml Arlésienne Eau de Toilette
• in a L’OCCITANE signature gift box.

Next, Rituals is another favourite brand I use everyday. There’s a luxury element to their body and home products, with rich textures that leave you feeling all spa-like and a cleansing approach that helps to switch your brain into ‘relax‘ mode and transforms my routine into something more spiritual; something that’s not all that easy to do these days. They produce organically, dermatologically, non animal tested, products such as body and facial care, to organic cotton ware, scented candles, perfumes, gemstone make-up and tea. The products are inspired by nature, made from organic and renewable compounds that are both friendly to the environment and the skin. The Yogi Flow Foaming Shower Gel is a favourite (think Indian rose, sweet almond oil, himalaya honey), as it is the jewel in Ritual bathing product crown. When you push down on the pump a light gel is dispersed that transforms into a foam in the palm of your hand. It’s thick and cleansing and after showering you feel clean, but in a moisturised way. Smells lush too! This is part of their “The Ritual of Ayurveda “range, which is an ancient philosophy based on restoring inner harmony through the old practices of cleaning and nurturing your body and soul. 

Previously known as Ayurveda RITUALS, the gift package is wrapped in a colourful and beautiful gift box. Each set contains:

- Yogi Delight shower oil 200ml
- Yogi Flow foaming shower gel 200ml
- Honey Touch body cream 70ml
- Himalaya Scrub 125 gr



Lastly, who doesn’t love The Body Shop toiletries? This Christmas, The Body Shop have loads of beautiful festive sets for all ages and different range of prices! I know like L’OCCITANE, I have used them for years and years. The body butters are to die for! Several months ago I was able to purchase the Body Shop British Rose Deluxe gift as I love roses. The release was for The Body Shop’s 40th anniversary and I was so keen to try it out as the products used organic roses grown in Herefordshire. Im obsessed with anything Roses really. It was a line centered around Britain’s favourite flower, the rose. 

Here, we have the British Rose Festive Picks, a modern take on beautiful blooms indeed. Infused with again, organic mulish rose essence, this floral bath and body gift is one they would love. The lovely pink box contains:

  • British Rose Shower Gel 250ml
  • British Rose Body Butter 50ml
  • British Rose Body Scrub 50ml
  • British Rose Soap 100g
  • A small cream bath lily

So that’s my roundup of my favourite Indulgent bath and body care sets for Christmas presents! 
But remember whatever your gift, big or small, it’s always the thought that counts. Spending buttloads of money to buy presents is not the only way to celebrate Christmas. I think just by being there with your family or friends, making time for them is what truly matters nowadays. For many it is their first Christmas without a particular loved one and many others lost loved ones at Christmas.

So what are your favourite Bath and Body care sets? Do you enjoy getting toiletries as much as I do?


XOXO
