Gift Guide | The Body Shop On A Budget

Christmas is certainly a time that breaks the bank and you end up spending a lot more than you would want to. This year I’m 100% on a budget due to maternity leave, as a lot of you know. With O2 you have O2 Priority and you get so many good deals as well as freebies. Things like free chocolate coins at W H Smiths, a free advent calendar from Thornton’s and a free hot drink every Tuesday from Cafe Nero. I saw a Body Shop offer for online and in-store, spend £50 and get £25 off. That is an amazing offer and they have it online on their own website at the moment as well so everyone can use it. 

They had a lot of beautiful gift sets for about £20 but I would only be able to get 2 and then something else. Instead I opted for the smaller but just as gorgeous gift sets. My all time favourite and the gift I got for myself was the Coconut set. I just love the smell of it. The smell really stays on your body with the body butter and I can just smell it all day, so nice! The other bits are perfect for everyone, sister, mum, girlfriend and best friend. 

All under £15

  • Gift bags with body butter, hand cream and shower cream inside. Plus the bag would be super handy for travelling or just keeping bits in – £12
  • Gift Box with body butter and shower gel with the Christmas scents of frosted plum and frosted berries – £9
  • Small gift box with shower gel, gel lotion and a body puff – £6
  • Body shop hand soap – £2
  • Bath bombs – £1.50 

What’s your favourite thing from the body shop? I would love to know, tell me in the comments below!
