Advent Calendar – Day Eight

L'occitane 2

L’Occitane Gift Sets

Unbelievably, not everyone you know will be a hardcore beauty nut, so I’m suggesting these as a good gift for those people who perhaps you don’t know so well- a work colleague, Secret Santa or an awkward in-law. Most people recognise the brand, appreciate its quality and know what to do with a shower gel.


L’Occitane are well practiced at putting together good value Christmas gifts, sets range from £12 for a soap to trio, to £194 for their priciest skincare package, but with lots of affordable mid-range options. They are particularly astute at catering for male tastes, keeping the packaging classic rather than embarrassingly macho. Of the several sets aimed at the gents, I particularly like the Shower Collection for Men, which is £25.50 and contains shower gel and shampoo, the delicious smelling Verdon Refreshing Splash (aftershave) and Cedre and Orange Aftershave Balm. Of their feminine sets, I’d probably choose the Winter Delight Collection, which is a whole heap of miniature goodies in a lovely wash bag at £25.
