Giving back with my gift guide + giveaway!

Hair Romance x The Body Shop Collaboration

Christmas is my favourite time of the year. It’s also my
birthday month, and so it can be really hectic.

But this year I’m cruising into the Christmas countdown with
all my gifts sorted (I know – who even am I?!) and I’ll let you
in on my easy gift guide.

Plus I’ve got an amazing giveaway for you at the end of this
post that you won’t want to miss!

Christmas shopping made easy


The Body Shop
has been a constant in my Christmas gift list for
years. I love receiving gifts from The Body Shop and it’s always
my go-to for thoughtful gifts.

Every gift pack is so beautifully presented. Many of the gifts
are in reusable containers that can be repurposed or used as home
accessories.

The Body Shop really have something for everyone and this
season, they’re #EnchantedByNature.

Gifts that give back

This year, every purchase from The Body Shop will give back to
nature.

The Body Shop is known for making a difference with their
charity projects. This year they’re supporting the World Land
Trust and Woodland Trust as part of their World Bio-Bridges
Mission.

What this means is that every purchase you make with The Body
Shop will help protect and re-generate over 10 million square
metres of forest. Bio-Bridges are corridors between the forests
that help link isolated and endangered animals and plants, allowing
them to thrive again.

How to choose a good gift

Christmas shopping doesn’t have to be a chore, and here’s
how to win the title of “Best Gift Giver” at your home this
year. (What? Is it just my family that’s this competitive?!)

1. Treat them

Everybody loves a gift that’s nicer than what they would buy
themselves. Go the extra mile and for bonus points, give them the
gift of time.

This
Finest Face Mask Duo box set
feels much more expensive than it
is. These vegan masks are a beautiful gift, and to make it even
better, add in some time.

To make sure your friend gets to use them, offer to host a spa
night at yours in the New Year. If they’re a parent, this mask
set with an offer to babysit so they can have a night off to use it
will win BEST GIFT for real.

2. Make it pretty and practical

Double-duty gifts are always popular, and they’re a lovely
reminder for a long time too.

The Body Shop has nailed it with
this White Musk Collection
. Scent is closely linked to memory
and this classic fragrance will remind your friend of you whenever
she wears it.

It also comes in this gorgeous decorative box that can be reused
as a home accessory or regifted. Practical and pretty!

3. Gifts for guys

Why are guys so hard to buy gifts for? I think we make it more
complicated than it needs to be.

This
Body Shop fragrance set
comes in a cool reusable tin and with a
smart pocket square made from recycled sari.

He’ll look stylish and smell great – everyone’s happy!

Secret Santa simplified

Finding a Secret Santa gift that doesn’t suck is simple at The
Body Shop.

Everyone loves travel-size products and with gorgeous gift packs
like the
Strawberry Treats
for only $12 and the cute
House of Vanilla Marshmallow Delights
for only $15, you can
have your shopping done in no time.

There are some gorgeous men’s gift sets too like the
Fuji Green Tea Treats
for only $10.

The Body Shop Advent Calendars

One of the most incredible gift packs I’ve ever seen is

The Body Shop Advent Calendar
.

Inside this dear box (pun intended!) are 25 individually boxed
gifts for you to celebrate the holiday season.

You can open a box every day in the lead up to Christmas or go
nuts and open them all at once!

Inside you’ll also find daily tips to help you reconnect with
nature, which is the perfect way to stay centred during this busy
time of year. Plus you can reuse the boxes to create a beautiful
picture puzzle.

The
Enchanted Deluxe Advent Calendar
, featuring Dani the Deer is
$150 (but contains products worth $233!)

For me, the best gifts are shared.

Stress-free holiday season

For the first year ever, I am ahead with my Christmas shopping.
I’ve picked up lots of gifts from The Body Shop for my family,
friends, and Secret Santa gifts too.

I’m looking forward to a stress-free holiday season, and
knowing that gifts from The Body Shop are making a difference with
their charity programs is a great feeling too.

Happy holidays and good luck for the
giveaway!
