The Body Shop’s Best-Ever Christmas Collection is Here.

From vegan beauty treats to blissful body care, stocking fillers to more indulgent premium gifts, The Body Shop has gifts to delight everyone on your list – and every budget. And the gifts don’t just spread wonder to those who receive them, but those who helped make them too.

This Christmas, The Body Shop is wishing for a fairer future for all. That’s why every one of its gifts is enriched with ingredients or packaging from its Community Fair Trade partners. Community Fair Trade is The Body Shop’s bespoke programme that helps its small-hold producers gain market access and invest in social and environmental projects that benefit their communities. So each time you buy a present, you’ll be supporting communities around the world.

It doesn’t stop at Community Fair Trade partners, either. This year, The Body Shop launched its activism campaign, ‘Be Seen. Be Heard’, to amplify young voices in the halls of power. That’s why each purchase over the Christmas period will help The Body Shop donate a minimum of £500,000* to organisations across the globe that support young people who are contributing to their communities to make the world a fairer, more wonderful place.

Limited-Edition Body Care Is Back

The Body Shop has launched two brand new scents to help you feel wonderful.

New Limited-Edition Spiced Orange

Like a warm, cosy hug, the new limited-edition Spiced Orange body care collection brings pure comfort. These skin-loving treats are infused with orange rind essential oil, known for its relaxing scent. And it’s all topped off with the scent of baked spices and vanilla to immerse you in festive nostalgia.

New Limited-Edition Wild Pine

Ever feel like escaping from the busyness of the season? Now you can with the new limited-edition Wild Pine body care collection. Infused with pine essential oil, this crisp clean scent will transport you to a fresh pine forest and help revive the senses. Plus, the collection packs a moisture hit to cuddle dry skin.

Limited-Edition Plum (is back)

This year we’re bringing back a seasonal favorite! Enriched with plum extract from Turkey* this rich, bright, fruity-floral scent is guaranteed to give you the Christmas feels. What’s more all products in the range are vegan and registered by The Vegan Society!

Wonder Filled Gifts for Every Beautiful Body

For Body Care Fans

They’ll love Rich & Creamy Avocado Essentials Gift – a creamy, moisturising body care routine for dry skin, found in our reusable vanity cases.

Or why not transport them to a festive wonderland with the Cheer & Wonder Orange & Pine Mini Collection, the perfect way to sample The Body Shop’s new limited-edition ranges and transport them to a festive wonderland.

For Haircare Obsessives

For someone who deserves some serious pampering, the Repair & Revive Shea Gift packs a shampoo, mask and treatment hair wrap, for a complete Shea routine to help repair hair from the inside out. **

For Make-up Magpies

For the Christmas party-goers, the multitasking Freestyle Crayons and Freestyle Pigments will help them create truly original party looks, while Peptalk Lipsticks are the ultimate finishing touch.

For Skincare Addicts

Elevate your skincare routine with the Fresh & Festive Edelweiss gift. Enriched with edelweiss extract, the skincare set leaves skin feeling stronger and smoother (even after one too many late nights).

For Fragrance Lovers

Look no further than the Dream & Glow Glowing Cherry Collection. Filled with fragrant body care alongside an Eau de Toilette, this set is sure to ignite happiness with its fragrant, floral scent.

For Every Body

Everyone needs from a good night’s kip to feel their best self. If feeling rested is on their wish list, the Unwind & Rest Sleep Intro Gift packs a lavender and vetiver lullaby. It’ll give them the best excuse for a bit of ‘me time’.

For Ethical Admirers

Made with love for a fairer, more wonderful world, the Gift of Wonder is bursting with Community Fair Trade must-haves perfect for pampering. It even comes in a handwoven, reusable paper basket crafted by Community Fair Trade partners in Nepal. It’s a gift you can feel really good about giving.

Create Your Own Wonder

Prefer something a little more personal? No problem. The Body Shop’s personalised gift range lets you create something truly special, filled with the treats they love.

Every element of the gift is down to you, even the packaging – choose from gift pouches, boxes, bags and more.

Get Paper Industry, The Body Shop’s Community Fair Trade partner since 1989, has handcrafted this year’s beautiful gift boxes and bags use recycled paper and upcycled cotton offcuts. Each shares uplifting stories of the women who made them. Based in Nepal, they offer fair and equal pay to their predominantly female workforce and provide social initiatives that support the local community.

The Body Shop’s first ever Community Fair Trade partner, Teddy Exports, has also crafted this year’s gorgeous gift pouches made with 100% natural jute. In a partnership spanning over 30 years, Teddy Exports has grown from five craftspeople to providing fair pay and work for over 600 people in 30 villages, and funded innovative healthcare initiatives and education for thousands of children.

Give a Little More Sustainably & Share the Wonder of Refills

With everything in excess, Christmas can be tough on the planet. This year’s line-up includes a whole host of more sustainable pressies, with more recycled packaging that’s kinder to the planet, reusable accessories, and a huge reduction in waste along the way.

Cutting down on material

Since last Christmas The Body Shop has saved 100 tonnes of material switching from rigid card boxes to reusable paper vanity cases across our best-selling core Bath & Body gifts. That’s the weight of more than 4,500 6ft fir trees!

New refillable gifts

New for 2022 is the Reuse & Refill Gift. Did you know that switching to refillable products collectively could save over 25 tonnes of plastic per year? This reusable string bag has plenty of space for holding two refillable aluminium bottles, so you can stock up on their favourite treats. Perfect for a meaningful gift that can be used again and again.

Kinder accessories

To make buffing that body a little better for the planet, The Body Shop has created a Shower & Scrub jute exfoliator, handmade with jute sourced through its Community Fair Trade partner, Prokritee in Bangladesh. There’s even a biodegradable konjac sponge collection. Pretty cool, right?

Reusable packaging

The cherry on the top? The Body Shop has designed most of its gift packaging to be reused or repurposed too, so your treats and surprises have a long life after Christmas. Head to thebodyshop.com for inspiration on repurposing tips and tricks.
