Lush fresh, natural, handmade cosmetics have Christmas all wrapped up this year with its range of seasonal stocking fillers, mid-range gifts and luxurious hatboxes. There’s something for everyone and for every budget. All are lovingly wrapped with 100% recycled paper and the majority are tied prettily with recycled paper ribbons. They’re even filled with compostable popcorn, instead of shredded paper… This has many environmental benefits, mainly that it’s a ‘clean’ filler, which means we don’t have to wrap each individual product in plastic bags, we can pack them naked (where appropriate), resulting in the saving of 4.6 million plastic bags annually.
THE STOCKING FILLERS priced £5.00 – £7.50:
SECRET SANTA (£5.00) … the ideal secret Santa gift for friends, work colleagues and generally anyone you know, contains a cute Chocolate Santa bath ballistic (small version), that’s shaped like Santa and smells like chocolate and vanilla, and a 100g piece of Lush’s best-selling Honey I Washed the Kids soap.
