Lush Crush


Without fail, every time I walk by a Lush store during the holidays, I get a little tingle of excitement. See, they’ve very cleverly stocked their shelves with dozens of covetable pressies, and given that they’re all already packaged up in cheerful holiday paper and glittery gift boxes, one can simply imagine how lovely they’d look under the tree, handed over to a friend, or you know, in your hands. Today I’ve picked out a few of my favourites + some appropriate gifting scenarios for you to consider.

Lush FUN Christmas GiftPERFECT FOR: Your Son or Daughter’s Stocking – FUN Christmas Gift – $8.95
Bath time tends to go most smoothly when it’s fun – and that’s exactly what you’ll get when your kid unwraps this trio of candy-shaped (and coloured) packages of FUN. Unfamiliar with this wonder product? It’s a moldable soap that can be used to make shapes, scrub up, or crumble under the tap for mounds of fluffy, splashworthy bubbles. Honestly, your child probably won’t even realize they’re getting clean they’ll be having so much fun with their FUN.

Lush Snowman Invasion Gift
PERFECT FOR: Secret Santa Swaps – Snowman Invasion – $12.95
I picked this gift for a few reasons. First, it’s hella affordable. If you’re doing a $15 & under swap, this one fits the bill. If it’s $10 and under, sneak in the extra $3 and call it a day – Santa will be kind to you later. Secondly, it includes two bath bombs that are perfect for warming up on the chilliest of winter nights (and I have to say, newbie bath bomb Cinders is absolutely to die for, it smells so amazing). Thirdly, fun fact – when Lush co-creator & inventor Helen Ambrosen first saw the Snowmen bath bombs lined up, she thought it looked like they were invading the Lush labs! Cinders was teamed up alongside it to give a crackly accompaniment to the whole ‘invasion’ theme.

Lush Christmas Kisses Gift Set
PERFECT FOR: Your New Smoochworthy Girlfriend – Christmas Kisses – $22.95
So you’ve recently started dating and while you’re totally infatuated with this girl, you’re also a little unsteady in the gifting department. How much to spend? What to buy? Will it be something that works with her interests? Here’s a hint: if you’re both interested in kissing one another, why not help her prep her pout with this three-pack of lip-nourishing goodies. Featuring a set of Toothy Tabs to brush up with, an invigorating cola-flavoured lip scrub, and a deep red lip tint, round out your gift with a sprig of mistletoe and expect to be kept very busy after she opens this sweet pick.

Lush Woweeee GiftPERFECT FOR: The Gracious Host – Woweeee – $28.95
If you’re spending the weekend at a friend’s lodge over the holidays, be sure to replenish their supplies by bringing a fun, party-oriented gift. Packaged in a retro-inspired tube, this set is bursting with products to keep you energized and refreshed through even the most taxing holiday party season. Start off your day with the liquor-laced Mr. Punch soap or the zingy mint of the Dirty Springwash shower gel, unwind by playing with a bundle of blue FUN, and start the next day anew by sloughing off dead skin with the included Sandy Santa Body Butter.

Lush Shooting Stars

PERFECT FOR: Your Separated-At-Birth Best Friend – Shooting Stars – $37.95
I can’t recall ever seeing these ornament-shaped gift sets from Lush before (there are a couple) so I thought I was due to feature one this year. I particularly love how thorough the starry theme is here – including two shimmery bath bombs, a star-shaped version of Lush’s beloved Rock Star soap, a limited edition sparkly bath melt, and to cap it all off, a pretty pink lip tint in Honey Trap. It’s the perfect way to tell a friend that she’s a true star in your life, while she gets to enjoy the glittery fruits of your gift-giving labours.

Lush Getting Ziggy With ItPERFECT FOR: Your Wannabe Rock Stars Mom and Dad – Getting Ziggy With It – $76.95
My husband is always hesitant to touch any of my products in the bathroom, although after some prodding I’ve convinced him that Lush’s products are for the most part, quite unisex (although he may want to steer clear of the glittery bath melts…) After all, my dad’s favourite scent is Rock Star, which is nothing if not girly and sugary at the same time. Anyway, this funkily-packaged set features a range of earthy, psychedelic products that’ll take mom and pops back to their not-so-innocent youth. From patchouli Karma soap to Grass shower gel to champagne-infused Celebrate body lotion, this funky collection is perfect for mom and dad to split in two (and share) in the shower. Although dudes, be warned – there are two glittery bath melts included!

Lush WOW!PERFECT FOR: The Lush Fanatic – WOW! – $249.95
Okay there selfish shellfish. You’ve seen the gift ideas I’ve presented above and you WANT IT ALL. I don’t blame you. If you are a diehard Lushie with plenty of time and occasions to take luxurious baths, then you should certainly add this packed-to-the-gills hat box to your wish list. Filled with nearly all of this season’s new and limited edition (and recurring) holiday products, this is the best way to ensure you get to dabble in everything that’s on the shelves for this short time before the holidays. Packed with 6 soaps, 2 lip products, 4 bath melts and bars, 2 lotions, 3 shower gels, 1 package of gold FUN, 4 bubble bars, and 10 bath bombs, this set really has everything a bath and Lush junkie could ever ask for. Lather up!

After all, I’m giving them away…one winner is going to take home the Christmas Bathtime Favourites Gift ($90), packed with twelve bubble bars and bath bombs.

  5. I love Lush. Even in a new town, I can smell their shops from two blocks away. I’d give Snow Fairy. Because it’s purty and smells like candy.

  6. Loralie Baker says:

    It is so hard to pick just one favorite from Lush. I’m like a kid in a candy store when I go shopping there. So the easiest way to appease my craving for everything lush is to choose the Wow! Gift basket as my favorite! http://www.lush.ca/WOW%21/03932,en_CA,pd.html#q=Wow&start=5
