Sudsy Santa

One of the BEST things about holiday gift shopping is this happens to be the time of year when all of the bath stores launch a bunch of limited edition gift scents and fragrances. Last year I recall doing a pretty exhaustive roundup of everything every store was launching. This year I’d like to focus on each store one at a time, starting with one of my personal faves – Lush.

The numero uno reason why Lush is one of my top picks for the holiday season is their fabulous collection of prepackaged gift boxes. It literally doesn’t get easier than this – they come beautifully wrapped and packed to the brim with so many richly scented bath bombs, soaps, bubble bars and more, it’s almost hard to believe they’re as affordable as they are. Which is another awesome thing about the brand. This year they’ve got a handy gift finder on their website that lets you pick who you’re buying for and what your budget is. One click later and you’re on your way to gift heaven.

Equally awesome are the a la carte options, including a ton of limited edition scents and products released just for the holidays, such as the ever-popular sugar-spun Snow Fairy that always makes an appearance in my family’s stockings. Since most items are $10 and under, it’s easy to stock up on little items for stockings or a group of friends, or even as part of a bigger custom-made gift basket.

Extra incentive on the gift box front? Lush is going all Wonka on us and giving away 50,000 golden tickets inside their boxes, 500 of which are for instant win prizes ranging from charitable donations and exclusive products to one of ten grand prizes of a trip to Vancouver to check out where all the bathtime magic happens: the Lush factory.

Anyway…I’ve picked out three of my fave new items from the Lush holiday line. Pay attention…this could be valuable šŸ™‚

Tin of Pure Imagination – $54.95
Keeping with the Wonka theme, this psychedelic box features all of the latest and greatest inventions from the minds of Lush’s bathtime wizards. As lovely as the Australian Igloo Sugar Scrub and Melting Snowman Bath Melt sound, I’m most curious to try out the solid toothpaste.

Three Gold Rings – $6.95
Get sudsy with this shimmery bubble bar, which serves up sensual vanilla Creme Anglais alongside sweet orange oil and myrrh. It may be two short of a Partridge in a Pear Tree, but this a seriously beautiful-smelling choice for a stocking stuffer. Bonus points for being vegan!

Celebrate Lip Tint – $8.95
For the ultimate girly girl, this pink champagne-inspired lip tint is infused with cognac, lemon, grapefruit, icing sugar, almond oil, and a kiss of cherry flavour for whoever you meet under the mistletoe. To make things extra festive, it’s dusted with a sprinkling of gold for that extra holiday shine.

Oops…wait. I mean, I said I was only picking my fave three right? Well I’m going to throw the ‘Best Wishes‘ gift set in there as well. Why you ask? Because I have one to give away to one lucky reader. Packed with three holiday goodies – the So White and Satsumo Santa bath bombs plus newbie product the Superstar Bubble Bar, consider me officially jealous if you win this one.
