The Body Shop Christmas gifting 2019

Oh god, it's started - the first mention of the C word on my blog. And what a great way to kick it off, with one of my favourite shops ever: The Body Shop. I popped into the Liverpool One store last week to check out their festive decor (the window displays move and they're so cool) as well as the Christmas gifting range.


This year, The Body Shop are making a donation to Plan International with every Christmas transaction made. The charity are fantastic, and donations from The Body Shop will help girls in Brazil and Indonesia into education which is amazing. There is also a significant reduction in non-recyclable plastic packaging: a lot of the gifts come in patterned jute bags or cardboard boxes, which is fantastic to see.


There are beauty advent calendars, which are a luxury item for sure but a brilliant way to test out loads of different products such as a skincare, hair care and make up. The boxes you pull out have little feminist slogans and facts on them - a lovely addition I think!



You can personalise your own body butter again this year, and I genuinely think this is such a cool idea for Secret Santa or as a stocking filler. Hint hint, anyone buying for me... Along with the regular Body Shop scents (my favourite is Moringa), there are three new festive scents: Rich Plum, Juicy Pear and Warm Vanilla. They're all lovely - the vanilla one is my favourite, and the plum smells really grown up. These scents are available as body butters but also as shower gel, hand cream, body yoghurt and more.



As well as the new Christmas scents, there are some festive make up products available too: Drops of Gold, some illuminating drops that would look banging mixed with foundation, a loose sparkly powder highlight called The Sparkler, and a powder highlighter called Illuminator Highlighter. Sparkle is in this Christmas season!



Pre-made gift sets are available across many of the ranges: there's an aloe skincare set, and a beard care set as well as a face mask collection. They're all so nicely packaged and would make the perfect present for those hard-to-buy-for pals.



You can put together your own gift sets too; there are these gorgeous jute bags with festive patterns printed on them, which you can fill with products. They're free when you spend over £25 and I just think they're a fab idea.

So, that's pretty much everything when it comes to The Body Shop and their Christmas gifting range. I absolutely love them as a brand, and have done since I was kid because they're great for sensitive skin - and you just can't go wrong with getting someone a nice body butter for Christmas, can you?
