‘Tis the season to be jolly! Too early you say? Not in our family. On November 1st, the Halloween decor gets put away and we’re straight into Christmas mode. Full on. Well, perhaps not completely ‘full on’. We’re not totally nuts and putting the tree up today (or are we?!) But we do start getting some of the decor out. We love the holidays so much and want to enjoy them for as long as possible. With all of the decorating, baking, shopping, wrapping etc, just getting everything done requires so much time and effort.
Speaking of shopping… The Body Shop has got us all giddy and excited about this Holiday season.
This Holiday season The Body Shop has some fabulous new gift giving ideas (as always!). Each year The Body Shop knocks it out of the park with their affordable, luxurious, environmentally conscious and ethical gift giving options.
There are 3 new limited edition scents for the holidays. Frosted Berries, Vanilla Chai and Spiced Apple. The Vanilla Chai Foaming Bath pictured above is made with creamy milk, hand picked vanilla from Madagascar, mixed with cinnamon, cardamon and brown sugar. Absolutely the most delicious smell!
We. Just. Can’t. Even.
In honour of their 40th Anniversary and their continuous campaign against animal testing and protecting endangered animals they have dedicated and created some very wild options #junglebells. With every special Christmas gift purchased this holiday season, they are restoring 1 square foot of Rain Forest. Specifically in Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia where The Body Shop will continue to build Bio-Bridges to aid damaged habitats and endangered animals such as the Sumutran Tigers, Malayan Tigers, Asian Elephants and Sumutran Orangutangs in finding their matches. How’s that for feeling even better about ‘It’s better to give then to receive’ ? We totally love that.
We were thrilled to receive these special personalized body butters! Available at select Body Shop locations in Vancouver, BC and Toronto, Ontario.
‘Love Me Butter‘ is just one of the amazing gift sets available this year. Retailing at $15, the set contains 3 of The Body Shop’s most popular body butters in travel sizes. Adorable! Definitely would be a great stocking stuffer.
The British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask ($28) isn’t necessarily a Christmas item but we wanted to include it in this post because we are mask fanatics and we both truly love this one! It is available in a variety of beautiful gift packs for the holidays. This rose mask moisturizes, tones, soothes and gives your skin an instant beautiful glow. Infused with real rose petals, rose oils, rose essence and Organic Trade aloe vera, this mask is like having an ultimate spa style facial at home. This mask is 100% Vegan! It would be a great gift for any woman in your life. Or man. We don’t discriminate.
SPICED APPLE CANDLE ($22)
We are both just a l’il candle obsessed. Every night during the Fall & Winter months, you can be sure we will have at least one candle burning at any given time! There’s nothing cozier then lighting up a delicious candle, sippin’ a cup of tea while watching a little Chevy Chase in Christmas Vacation during the holiday season. The best!
The Body Shop has 3 amazing new candles this Holiday season. Available in their new limited edition seasonal scents – Spiced Apple, Frosted Berries, & Vanilla Chai. Pictured above is the Spiced Apple candle. It smells absolutely delicious, and is not too strong or overpowering at all.
We’re thinking these candles are going to make awesome teacher and hostess gifts!
