I know, it's down to the wire, but just in case you still need a bit of shopping inspiration, I've got some super adorable giftables from The Body Shop. A heaping box of goodies arrived Tuesday and I found myself saying "awww!" or "it's so cute!" to just about everything I discovered. Even better than the selection, is the fact that TBS offers something for literally every price point.

See? Every budget. The adorable little Vanilla Chai Tree Soap is merely one of the assorted holiday soaps (hearts, stars, etc.) and individually wrapped bath bombs on offer in a bunch of seasonal scents. These little somethings work nicely as stocking stuffers and feature a skin loving formula that lathers well and doesn't leave skin feeling stripped.

So cute, right? The Frosted Plum Festive Tin is an oversized ornament (clad with a bow for extra effect) that is filled with mini editions of Frosted Plum products. The Frosted Plum scent is delicious - a sweet combo of juicy plum, magnolia, and peony- without being overbearing. The set includes:
  • Frosted Plum Shower Gel (60 ml)
  • Frosted Plum Body Scrub (50 ml)
  • Frosted Plum Body Butter (50 ml)
  • Frosted Plum Hand Cream (30 ml)

Whatt?! Who can resist this? Actually, by the looks of things, not many. I can't find the Kiss My Lips Up Gift Set online anywhere. While you may not be able to get the kissy House of Holland makeup bag, the contents are available on their own.

The Metal Liquid Lipstick in Plum Titanium  (8 ml $10 USD / $15 CAD) is a gorgeous matte lipstick with a metallic sheen and a soft, moussey formula. It doesn't dry down completely, but instead stays soft on the lips while also being impressively long wearing. The range has six shades, and I want them all.

Taking your festive makeup to the next level gets easier with the Star Stamp Liner (1.5 ml $13 USD / $15 CAD) The dual ended liner  has a black stamper on one end that creates a little star, and a felt liner on the other for you more typical lining needs. Both ends have a deep black, matte finish that is water resistant and long-lasting.

Is it wrong to admit that the Values Robot Money Box made me squeal with delight? It is just SO ADORABLE! I have a soft spot for piggy banks anyway, but a hippie robot bank? Holidays made. Of course, it is made even better when you open it, as it is home to three Lip Butters (10 ml) and three Shower Gels (60 ml) in mango, coconut, and strawberry.

The bank is meant to encourage saving and in return giving to others in need in your community. It ties in with the fact that for every seasonal Body Shop gift bought, a donation is made to fund the Peace Play Project in Lebanon for a year, providing play and activities in a safe place for Syrian refugee children.

The Mask Sampler Set may look more Easter than Christmas, but it's so cute I really don't mind. The cardboard bunny packaging is home to a pair of plush bunny ears (aka a headband for keeping hair out of the way during masking) and nine (5 ml) single serve packets of The Body Shop masks:
  • Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask x3
  • British Rose Fresh Plumping mask x 3
  • Japanese Matcha Tea Pollution Clearing Mask x 3

Sometimes, all you need to win over your giftee is a classic gift set. Luckily, The Body Shop does a great gift set, with boxed offerings in all of their must-have scents. The Strawberry Premium Gift Collection comes wrapped in a cute red on red box (complete with bow) and a word search in the lid. Kind of neat, right? Inside you get a little bit of everything strawberry scented including:
  • Strawberry Shower Gel (250 ml)
  • Strawberry Body Mist (100 ml)
  • Strawberry Body Polish (75 ml)
  • Strawberry Body Butter (200 ml)
  • Strawberry Hand Cream (30 ml)

Overall, a bunch of really great giftables from The Body Shop this year! I am a huge fan of the Values Robot Money Box (even if it may have been intended for kids...) but you really can't miss with any of their options. Will you be gifting The Body Shop this year? Anything you want for yourself?
