How crazy is it that Christmas is in less than a month? It is the cosiest time of the year when all I want is to be surrounded by my family and friends, doing things together and preparing for the big night. Our gifts are almost all wrapped. Almos… we will get there. See what we chose.
This weekend we got together around the table to pack our Christmas gifts. It was so heartwarming to see Mikkèl really getting into it. He got very attracted to the colours and shapes of the gifts. He will love to hand them to his cousins. I can’t wait.
Our gifts are mostly beauty stuff. They are a favourite among our family as there is mostly girls – the men also love the products but the children and teens are all girls and nothing else make them happier than getting a box full of self-pampering material hehehe
The Body Shop has amazing gift sets for the whole family. Body-butters, scents, scrubs… you name it. Some of them come in limited edition for Christmas and they smell sooo good. I am sure the girls will love it.
When I choose The Body Shop I know and trust their corporate social responsibility, their fair trade with farmers and communities. They never test in animals and are actually one of the most know activists against animal cruelty.
With their Play for Peace campaign for every gift you buy from our seasonal gift collections, they will donate 4.4p to International Alert’s Peace Play Project. The packaging in their new seasonal gift collections transforms into games for the whole family to enjoy. By playing with us this season, you’re not only doing your bit for the planet by upcycling your packaging, you’ll also be supporting International Alert’s Peace Play Project, which helps Syrian refugee children to heal through play.

I cannot wait for tomorrow, the first day of December, when I can start opening the windows of the calendars. This one from L’Occitane is super exciting, with several favourite products spread all over the month. I thought of gifting it to somebody but I and my husband played selfishly and decided to keep for us. So we will open together both of the calendars and share the gifts. Mikkel will love the concept although the products are not exactly for him.
