Each year feels like it goes faster and faster and before we know it, Christmas is around the corner. And the festive season can be intense between the long summer days, Christmas parties, family and social engagements and the never-ending wanderlust to go travel during the holidays.
For me, I love being able to take the time as the year rounds up to take note of what has happened and reconnect with my mind and body. Finding the magic in my natural surroundings has an immediate calming effect and helps me feel recharged to smash more goals in the new year.
It’s why The Body Shop’s Christmas campaign this year speaks to me on so many levels.
I am #EnchantedByNature and in love with the way in which a quick dip in the ocean or a casual bush walk can immediately reset my levels and help me shake away the everyday worries.
I love being able to take a little time for self-care and use the amazingly, festive gifts from The Body Shop.
Not only is the packaging super cute and festive, but they’re made for anyone. There are great gift packs for under $20 that are perfect for the office Secret Santa or stocking fillers. There are packs for men to help them in their grooming; or just a bit of much-needed self-care. And even some cheeky goods for yourself for a true, treat yo’self moment for this festive season.
Here are some of my favourites:
1. Festive Sack of Peppermint Candy Cane delights | 2. 25 Days of the Enchanted Ultimate Advent Calendar | 3. Olivia the Owl | 4. Don’t Ask Just Mask | 5. Coconut Treats | 6. Shave Away Kit | 7. Strawberry Soft Hands, Warm Kisses
This isn’t just your regular phoned-in gift of soap. These gifts package up some of the most amazing products from The Body Shop, perfect for every budget and person.
I’m a stickler for The Body Shop classics – like the body butters and body scrubs. But throw a bit of Christmas spirit on it with the amazing Peppermint Candy Cane range and it’s like a candy surprise for your body. And it definitely won’t make you feel as sick as eating too many candy canes.
But for a more Aussie twist that also brings in the smells of summer, I’m loving the coconut range. It holds up no matter the season but The Body Shop have stepped it up with cute gift sets that I can’t wait to send out.
But if you can’t decide on just one scent, the Advent Calendar is the gift that keeps on giving every day – if you manage to pace it out in the lead-up to Christmas. This is a total upgrade from Advent Calendars as a child because instead of chocolate, there are incredible beauty goodies inside – including a nail file, eyelash curler, travel-size body washes and moisturisers so you can try a bit of everything from The Body Shop.
But the thing I love most that underneath all of the bells and mistletoe of these exciting gifts, The Body Shop is committed to giving back and helping to preserve the nature around us. Every purchase with The Body Shop this Christmas – big or small- will help protect and re-wild over 10 million square metres of forest.
As much as Christmas can be overtaken with the excitement of presents and holiday parties and time with our families, it’s also within the spirit of Christmas to spread joy around and give back to others.
