Gift Ideas from The Body Shop

disclosure produt review

I’ve been a fan of The Body Shop for as long as I can remember. We used to make frequent trips to the Bayshore Shopping Centre in Ottawa and it was one store that I knew we’d be checking out. My mom purchased their body products for herself and then I started buying them as a teen with money I made from my part-time job. I was a fan of the White Musk fragrance and it was all I wore back then. I was sad to move away from The Body Shop and my beloved White Musk perfume. Now I don’t need to worry about the distance. Hello online shopping!

The Body Shop has their largest gift selection ever this Christmas season. They have over 75 gifts that new and old fans will adore. If you’re stuck on a person and don’t know what to buy them, take a look at your local store or visit The Body Shop online. I’m sure you’ll be able to find a few items perfect for gift giving.

To make this holiday season even more special, The Body Shop has teamed up with War Child, a global charity for children affected by war and grants these children the wish of education. They are aiming to provide more than six million lessons in war-torn areas of the world. You play a part in helping this initiative. For every gift you buy, no matter how big or small, The Body Shop will make a contribution that funds a class for a child. How awesome is that? Shop for Christmas and helps others. Sounds like a win-win.

Today I want to share with you my top picks from The Body Shop gift selection.

The Body Shop White Musk Eau de Toilette Gift Set

Of course, you knew that I would have to include something White Musk right? This set includes White Musk Sumptuous Shower Gel, White Musk Smooth Satin Body Lotion and my fave, White Musk Eau de Toilette.

It comes packaged in a box ready for gifting. You could wrap it if you like or just leave as is under the tree. I received the small set which has an SRP of $20. They also have a Large set with an SRP of $35.  It contains White Musk® Eau de Toilette 60 ml, White Musk® Eau de Toilette 10 ml, White Musk® Body Lotion 60 ml, White Musk® Shower Gel and a Mini Notebook.

It smells so good! This scent brings back so many memories. I’m happy to start wearing it again.

My teenage daughter has been wearing the eyeshadow. It’s suitable for contact-lens wears like her. Her favourite is the soft purple colour. It has an SRP of $20.

The Body Shop Body Butter

You can’t go wrong with some Body Butter. It makes for a great stocking stuffer! The Body Shop Body Butter is the bomb! Some moisturizers dry out my skin, but this stuff really does work. My hands feel soft, smooth and hydrated. I need to keep The Body Shop Body Butter close by with the dry, cold winter here.

I tried Vanilla Brulee Body Butter and Frosted Cranberry Body Butter (so festive!). I buy a bunch at a time so I always have some around when I need it. They have an SRP of $20 for 200 ml.

The Body Shop Fruity Sweethearts

A trio of mini Body Butters in some fresh fruit flavours! It includes 50 ml each of Strawberry Body Butter, Satsuma Body Butter and Mango Butter Body. It has an SRP of $14 ($18 total value). It’s packaged in a pretty heart shaped box ready to give to someone who has your heart.

 The Body Shop Modern Gent’s Fragrance Gift in White Musk

White Musk for Men is a sensual blend of musk, lavender, cedarwood, vetiver and amber notes and smells AMAZING! John and I can be known as the White Musk couple with him in his fragrance and me wearing mine. This set comes in a collectible tin and includes White Musk for Men Hair & Body Wash 200 ml, White Musk for Men Aftershave Balm 75 ml and White Musk for Men Eau de Toilette 100 ml.

It has an SRP of $45 ($57 value). I may have to buy another one for my brother-in-law. I think he’d really like it. He’s a good looking guy who always has a neat, professional appearance.

The Body Shop Moringa Ultimate Luxuries

Moringa is a light, feminine floral scent and this collection is truly luxurious. It contains everything a person would need to keep skin looking and smelling fantastic. It definitely lives up to its name!

It includes Moringa Shower Gel 250 ml, Moringa Body Butter 200 ml, Moringa Body Scrub 50 ml, Moringa Body Sorbet 200 ml, Moringa Beautifying Oil 100 ml, Moringa Eau de Toilette 30 ml. You can buy this set for $55 ($80 value). It is also available in Strawberry and Shea and Coconut.

My sister Jillian saw this set in my home and was swooning over it. I guess she is a big Moringa fan!

Use this handy store locator to find The Body Shop closest to you. If you don’t live near a store, don’t despair. You can order online. That is what I’ve been doing when I can’t make a trip to Ottawa.

Don’t forget your purchase helps a charity – buy a gift, help a child! I’ll be picking up some of their gift sets for my family and friends.
