The Body Shop Holiday 2014 Gift Guide

Disclaimer: Product featured was provided for review.
Each year, The Body Shop offers a myriad of beautiful ready-to-gift holiday sets and this year the store is offering a huge selection of gift sets, big and small, perfect for bath and body lovers. Additionally, The Body Shop is partnering up with War Child, a charity that funds education for children affected by war. For selected gifts you buy, a portion of the proceeds will be used towards a class for a child. To see some of my picks from this year's gift collection, click......
Strawberry Festive Picks ($25 CAD): 
If you love the Strawberry collection from The Body Shop (like I do), then this is the perfect little set for you. Included are the classic Strawberry Body Butter, the Strawberry Body Polish, a body wash, a bar soap, and a red loofah. I'm super excited to try the body polish because not only does it smell awesome, it has real strawberry seeds as an exfoliating agent.
All the goodies come in a beautiful red gift box with silver engravings on the lid.

White Musk Eau de Toilette Gift Set ($35 CAD):
For those that prefer something a little more sensual and velvety, check out this gift set featuring the signature The Body Shop White Musk Eau de Toilette. The set includes a full-sized perfume, a travel-sized perfume, a mini shower gel and body lotion. There is also a bonus White Musk themed mini notebook.

Glazed Apple Tin of Delights ($40 CAD):
An exclusive scent collection only for the holidays, the Glazed Apple Tin of Delights features four goodies bearing a delicious and refreshing green apple scent. Included is a mini body polish, a full-sized lip balm, body butter, and Eau de Toilette. The perfume comes in the most delightful shimmering green bottle. The Glazed Apple scent is very crisp and natural, not too sweet as the name might suggest.

Shea Ultimate Luxuries ($55):
If you have an undying love for a certain scent collection from The Body Shop, this season is a great time to save on full collections. The Ultimate Luxury set (available in Shea, Strawberry, Moringa, and Coconut) offers a choke full of goodies (worth $75 CAD) from a single scent collection. I have here the classic Shea butter collection, which features a full-sized body butter, shower gel, body lotion, beautifying oil, a mini body scrub, and a full-sized Eau de Toilette. The set comes in a fancy cardboard tub bearing gorgeous silver embossings on the lid.

The Joy Giving Music Box ($40 CAD):
I'm saving the best for last so behold the Joy Giving Music Box! Including a mini body butter and lip butter in Strawberry, Honey, and Shea with a bonus Moringa Eau de Toilette, this festive-looking silver and red tin actually doubles as a music box!
To activate the melodic "Jingle Bells", simply grasp the body of the tin and spin it around the base. I've never had a gift set that worked like a music box so this is definitely a collectible!
