Who cares Summer is not even finished yet? It’s cold enough to think about Christmas already! And Christmas means.. love, family, friends, food and.. GIFTS! I always make gift baskets for Christmas, collecting items to put in there months in advance. I really love gifting! I love it as much as or perhaps even more than receiving presents myself. Obviously the contents of the baskets depend on who the basket is meant for. But I can divulge on one fact for this year: each basket will most definitely contain some LUSH products! I’ve only really discovered LUSH since the beginning of this year, so I have never used any of their Christmas products before. Luckily I was invited to the Christmas presentation last week, so I got a two weeks lead on deciding what I’m buying and what I’m leaving.
There are so many different gift packages to buy, I am overwhelmed! If you want to gift me anything, I’ll gladly take a Stardust gift box (47,95€) containing all glittery pink items this year features. And it comes wrapped in a gorgeous tin with a Robin print! I also love how there are low budget gift boxes (starting at €11.95) as well, and they’re still gorgeously wrapped.
Behold.. The Snow Fairy! I wasn’t too sure what this excessively raved about product was all about exactly, but now I know: it’s overly candy sweet and it’s pink. And there’s a reusable bath wand in the shape of a fairy wand with the same scent. GENIUS! I’ll confess: I’m totally buying at least two of those wands for myself! Wands go for €8.95 & shower gels start at €6.95 for the smallest bottle.
This bath bomb, called Father Christmas, is a new one. It’s full of glitter and Father Christmas colors. €5.95.
This is what Father Christmas looks like when it’ll all fizzed out!
This little monster is named Rocket. This is actually a bubble war wand, so you have to drag it around by its “hair” in your bath tub. You can use it several times. This is a very warm scent, so I’m thinking hot bath with a cup of tea on the side here. €8.95.
Captain Bubblebeard is also brand new. The shimmer is only on top, so don’t worry if you don’t like too much shimmer in your bath tub. This one would be super relaxing because of the lavender, which is great for taking baths just before going to bed! Need at least one of these as well. €8.95.
Sandy Santa is a fun scrub made with sugar. You just take a small bit and scrub away. €5.95
This little snowman costs just €3.95! This is a bath melt you have to lay flat onto the water. Then, watch it melt while you enjoy the scent.
This lip scrub tasted like pop corn! How cool is that? Take a small portion, scrub your lips & then eat the residue. As simple as that! €9.45.
And there’s loads more.. But you’ll discover that in stores as of the beginning of October. I guess Christmas will be starting really early for me this year. :)
