The Gift Guide | Boxed up & ready to go

Sunday, December 9, 2012

I have been strangely fond of the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments as of late — there’s something about their heavy, weighted packaging & twist-end closure that just sits really well with me.

At $22.50 USD ($26 CAD), they’re priced higher than I think we’d all prefer, but sometimes the little luxuries make the best gifts, you know? The products that you know someone will really enjoy, but wouldn’t necessarily splurge on if left to their own devices.

Living inside the box (for once) 

But then I started thinking about beauty gifts, and boxed gifts, and the ones that hang on trees (on Christmas trees, not just random backyard pines upon their own volition), and I wanted to throw together a few ready-to-go boxed sets for all of you. They’re quick, easy, and all you have to do is add some wrapping paper and a ribbon.

And, alright, some of this panic stems from the fact that your last ship date for Sephora.ca is tomorrow, in order for standard shipping to get a package to your door by the 24th. Our American readers and friends have a bit more time (Dec. 18th), but the 25th is sneaking up on us pretty quickly!

And, finally, a quick preview of a boxed set that’s coming up…

The Best of Burt’s Bees Set ($24.99 CAD), which contains their Coconut Foot Crème, Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Crème, and cult-status Lemon Cuticle Cream, all of which are paraben-, silicone-, and cruelty-free!

  1. I haven't had the opportunity to try out the Fresh lip balms, but luckily, December is my birthday month…and to my recollection, Sephora dishes one out to members on their birthdays. Lucky me!

    The lip treatments are wonderful, and so is the scrub! They just get the job done very well.. Would look wonderful hanging on any tree :-)

    You see, here's the problem: I want to get these… for myself now LOL

    I don't really know ANYONE who is into even skincare in my real life, but I'd be so happy with some of those Fresh sets!

  4. Indeed! My first (and only, thus far,) Fresh balms have been the BI ones. Very cute mini sizes, despite the awkward dimensions!

  5. (PS: Happy early birthday, Lulu! :D)

  6. I haven't tried the scrub! If you have such good things to say about it, though… :p

  7. :D Do it, Sunny! I've always been hugely in support of buying Christmas sets for yourself — a good deal is a good deal, you know? *shrugs*

  8. Those Fresh gift sets are so tempting! I love their original Sugar Lip Treatment, but haven't tried out any of the tinted colors yet.

    Btw, your blog is wonderful! I'm a new subscriber xx
