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!)

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.
You can shop all The Body Shop gifts here.
Happy holidays and good luck for the giveaway!
