The Body Shop Christmas Gift Guide

Shopping for Christmas gifts for your loved ones can be a daunting and stressful task. I am always (over)thinking and making lists of what can I buy and will that someone special really enjoy the gift. There is however this one place on the high street when it's safe to say I can go and come out with bundle of gifts for my mum, husband, friends, aunt and even my dad - The Body Shop! I also manage to get sneaky presents for myself too in the process and they're always from the Cranberry range exclusive to Christmas. Name the thing from the Cranberry Joy range and I've tried and tested it, but my firm favourites for years have been Shower Gel and Home Fragrance Oil. Both of these always put me in a holiday mood and I usually stack up on those in January sales.

This year I was invited for an amazing Back to School Christmas Party where we were tested on decoration of a gingerbread man, quick math calculations and had a preview of all Christmas range available in stores now! There are many Christmas Gifts to choose from, some of them are already packed, so there's no excuse not to put them on your Christmas Wishlist.

The Body Shop has been involved in Community Fair Trade projects for years and this year it gives £200,000 from our gift sales to build five new schools in Community Fair Trade areas around the world (Ghana, Honduras, Nepal and Northern and Southern India). So when you will buy any of the gift sets, you'll be helping the cause. Is there any better way of giving back something when shopping for a present for your close ones?

I think the star of the gift sets is this adorable Gingerbread School House* (RRP £17)! Packed with Cranberry Joy Shower Gel and Body Butter, Ginger Sparkle Shower Gel and Body Butter and bath lily, it provides perfect indulgence into the Christmas spirit. The cute house was designed and handmade by the artisans at Get Paper Industries, a traditional handmade paper products co-operative based in Kathmandu, Nepal. This community will benefit from a new high-school since The Body Shop picked it up as part of a gift sales project. There is already a primary school built thanks to The Body Shop's generosity, but now they want to go step further and give even more. I absolutely love this Gingerbread School House and the fact how symbolic it is. My mum already made an order to get one!

One of the best sets The Body Shop has this Christmas is this amazing The Ultimate Brush Collection* (RRP £45). It has all the brushes you need and I literally squealed when I saw it in my goody bag - so thank you so much TBS! I think The Body Shop brushes are seriously underestimated and when the Real Techniques brushes came on the market and everyone was raving about them I was left flabbergasted because the quality is just like TBS ones. I cannot wait to review them all in detail!

There are also usual offerings of Body Butter packs, lip gloss duos, perfume sets and novelty washballs available, but I also have my eye on the amazing The Body Shop Advent Calendar (RRP £55, contents worth £80)!
