LUSH HAS CHRISTMAS ALL WRAPPED UP!
After scouring the globe for festive folklore and fairytales, Lush has been inspired to create a selection of irresistible gifts perfect for everyone you know. There’s everything you could want, ranging from stocking fillers and secret Santa gifts, to luxurious hatboxes and tins with more than enough bath and body products to see you through to the New Year.
Choose from gifts inspired by fairytales, or those designed to epitomise Christmas cheer. Then there are a few old favourites that make an appearance every year and a new collection of innovatively packaged gifts, introducing the use of tins and handmade natural papers on our hatboxes.
All gifts are lovingly wrapped and packed with either popcorn or a new environmentally friendly filler called Ecoflo. Ecoflo is made from biodegradable potato starch, the waste product from a well-known crisp manufacturer! It has similar properties to polystyrene and acts as an incredibly light and clean filler. It makes us smile to be making good use of something that otherwise would have been thrown away.
Knot-Wrap (£3.95) … Knot-Wrap is inspired by the Japanese art of wrapping goods in cloth, using similar technique as origami. Lush has introduced vintage scarves into shops to encourage customers to use them instead of gift-wrap. At £3.95 each, the beautiful scarves are reusable and multipurpose. Each year billions of plastic bags end up as litter and using reusable bags and wrap, such as Knot-Wrap, can help reduce the impact to our environment.
After giving the Knot-Wrap as a gift, the scarves can then be re-used again and again as bags to carry items in, or as fashionable head-scarves / neck-scarves etc. The scarves are from various Vintage clothing suppliers (currently the majority are from Beyond Retro), allowing us to reuse existing fabrics rather than manufacturing our own = zero carbon footprint.
THE STOCKING FILLERS – under £7.50
Secret Santa (£5.00) … the ideal secret Santa gift for friends, work colleagues and generally anyone you know, contains a cute Satsumo Santa bath ballistic, that’s shaped like Santa and smells like oranges, and a star shaped piece of Snowcake soap.
