Every once in a while, as a fashion and beauty blogger, I get invited to events that have me pinching myself that I am really there.

Just recently I was invited to come along to The Body Shop’s Enchanted Forest Christmas Collection Launch, and the evening was nothing less than magical. The beautiful Vaucluse House was transformed into a Fairy Tale Cottage, complete with beautiful flowers, mysterious misty paths, and frolicking woodland animals carrying umbrellas to lead us on our journey to the heart of the Enchanted Forest where there were cocktails, affirmation trees, crystal healing and beautiful food awaiting us – and of course to see the Christmas Collection Gifts from The Body Shop!

The Body Shop’s Christmas gifts don’t just revitalise and re-energise – they let you give something back.
This Christmas, every purchase with The Body Shop – big or small — will help protect and re-wild over 10 million square metres of forest.
The Body Shop is supporting the World Land Trust and new partners Woodland Trust as a part of the World Bio-Bridges Mission.

Locally, in addition to their ongoing 12 month partnership, The Body Shop are working with Australian Childhood Foundation this Christmas to bring love back to children affected by the trauma of abuse and violence. An additional $20,000 will be donated to the foundation which will contribute to building a pilot Healing Hearts Garden, a place where children can heal and explore their sense in a restorative, natural environment.

The Body Shop has always been my go-to for Christmas presents, from Teachers Christmas Gifts to Colleagues gifts and Kris Kringle.  This Christmas, The Body Shop is taking us on a journey to the heart of the Enchanted Forest, exactly like the event I attended. They invite us to re-connect with nature and re-energise our mind, body and spirit with their nature-inspired gifts. The special edition scents for this Christmas are Peppermint Candy Cane, Vanilla Marshmallow and Berry Bonbon. How very Christmassy!


My picks are below:

Kris Kringle and Stocking fillers under $15:

Strawberry Treats $12, House of Peppermint Candy $15

There are also great stocking fillers in hand creams and soaps in the Christmas fragrances for around $7

Gifts under $50:

Love this gorgeous Olivia the Owl set for $30 and Absolute love the scent of this Fuji Green Tea Festive Picks at $35

Beard Care Kit $35 and The Classic White Musk Fragrance in a beautiful container $50


Luxe Items $50+

Shea Ultimate collection $80                                                                 Oils of Life  $85


And then there is of course their fantastic range of Advent Calendars that is part of my top 10 Advent Calendar list!

As you can see, there is plenty to choose from this year, and that is only a snipped of what is available!

All are available in stores and online from November 4th.

Happy Shopping!
