Give the gift of relaxation

If there's one thing that's sure to make anyone feel relaxed and pampered it's some head to toe pampering. From a long hot bath to layering on a smoothing body lotion, those extra little details can make the world of difference. Here's my pick of the best bodycare items if you're treating the one you love to some TLC this Christmas...

Rituals Laughing Buddha Secret Gift Set, £49.00 from
In terms of beauty releases this year, Rituals’ Laughing Buddha collection has been a firm favourite of mine. I’m fortunate to try new products all the time, but the likes of the Rituals Fortune Oil is something that I’ve repurchased time and time again. This collection teams great smelling, nourishing skincare with a peaceful, positive vibe for your home. Think of it as a gift of great karma for the year ahead.

Laura Mercier Body and Bath Luxe Quartet in Almond Coconut, £60.00 from
Laura Mercier do the most delicious nutty scents and this Alomond Coconut quartet is simply divine. This ready-boxed set ticks all of the boxes; a fragrance for the home, honey bath, a scrub, and deeply nourishing body cream. If gourmand scents are your thing then you’ll want to eat this up.


The Body Shop Body Butter Lollipop, £20.00 from
There are so many lovely scents at the Body Shop so why not enjoy them all? Their Body Butters have amassed a loyal following; they’re creamy, long lasting and hard working. This gorgeous lollipop shaped set contains miniature versions of five scented butters.


Aromatherapy Associates Renewing and Reviving Beauty Bag, £58.00 from
There’s a lot to be said for getting your day off to a great start, and AA always manage to do this when it comes to their Revive range. This silky body wash is perfect for perking you up first thing, the rose body cream will leave skin deeply hydrated and it is a truth universally acknowledged that all AA oils are sheer bliss. Atop a bargain price tag, this set comes with a beautiful gift bag, too.


St. Tropez Self Tan Starter Kit, £12.75 from
Christmas is all about catching up with friends and making any excuse for a night out. This in mind, some extra fake tan won’t go amiss for any party girl. This trial sized set will see her through the party season and give her a taster of the whole collection so that she knows which pieces to invest in for the new year.
