Last Wednesday night, I was invited to a bloggers event at The Body Shop on Grafton Street to reveal their fabulous Christmas Gifts. They really have something for everyone and every budget this year and the sets are absolutely gorgeous. There isn’t anyone I know who wouldn’t be happy to find these goodies under the tree on Christmas morning that’s for sure!

Just some of the goodies on display at The Body Shop event
There was so much to choose from so I’ve picked a few of my favourites below and broken them down into price range:
The Body Shop’s signature scent, White Musk, has been given a bit of a makeover and now comes in two other fragrance types along with the original & classic White Musk scent. Even the men in your life are included here with their own masculine range of White Musk gift sets to choose from. They come with an Eau de Toilette perfume plus a body lotion and/or body spritz to really layer the fragrance enough to last the day. This is one of my faves and I got to take a lovely set of the Classic White Musk home and try it out and it really is as gorgeous as I remember it. The fragrance lasts for absolutely ages too! Check out the full range of gifts in this price range, here
Just who could resist these gorgeous little sets with Christmas themed fragrances such as Ginger, Cranberry and Vanilla? Not me that’s for sure, they’re just too cute! They range from body scrubs and body butters to shower gels and body puffs encased in the cutest little keepsake tins and boxes. I’m a big fan of The Body Shop Body Butters, (they have a whole range with every type from Chocolate to Shea Butter) and these sets come with the limited edition Christmas Body Butters. You don’t have to wait for Christmas morning to open these beauties, imagine the joy of having a nice shower using your deliciously smelling shower gel and then slathering yourself in the matching body butter on Christmas Eve to snuggle into your comfy new PJ’s and wait for Santa to come 🙂 I love the fact that you can smell Christmassy as well as feel it! You have to check out the range here.
If you’re looking for a few little stocking fillers then look no further than these lovely little treats. They range from Chocolate body shower cream and soap to little mini manicure sets. Check out this bargain range of goodies here.
At €99, this next goodie goes in the “Money no Object” category! Following the latest trend for beauty brands to bring out their own Advent Calendars packed with lots of beauty goodies, The Body Shop has come out with this little beaut stuffed with 24 of their best selling products, check out what’s included here. Isn’t it amazing?! Try restraining yourself to one treat a day, I dare you!
The Body Shop is well known for it’s ethical fair trade and cruelty free products and following its “Beauty With a Heart” motto this Christmas, $300,000 from the sales of all their gifts will help build 5 new schools with their Community Fair Trade partners from around the world. So not only are you buying gorgeous pressies for your loved ones, you’re contributing to a good cause too, even more reason to treat the ones you love – or yourself! 🙂
At the event, we were also treated to a makeup demo from their new improved makeup line, I will do a separate post on the makeup as it’s just amazing and I really want to give it a good test run 🙂 We were also treated to an eyebrow threading demo. Threading in The Body Shop costs just €12 so I’ll be back to have that done. I also like the fact that the area where you have the threading is private in the Grafton Street store. I’ve seen the chairs out in full view of passers-by before in other stores and that is something that would put me off having it done if I’m honest.
What do you think of this collection? Will you be buying some Christmas Gift Sets from The Body Shop this year?
