crabtree & evelyn Verbena & Lavender de Provence Bath & Body Gift and frosted rose hand therapy cracker

If you celebrate Christmas, you're probably feeling the crunch to get everything ready in time. If you haven't finished all your shopping (or maybe just want ideas for what to buy during the after-holidays sales), I have a couple Crabtree & Evelyn* gifts to suggest!

The Verbena & Lavender de Provence Bath & Body Gift ($48 CAD) includes a bath and shower gel as well as a body lotion, both 250ml. It's packaged in a festive box with old-fashioned Christmas designs, and I really love the retro feel of them. While I haven't had the chance to extensively test the products included, they do smell wonderful and aren't too heavy on the lavender and not powdery. The bottles are heavy and definitely feel quality. The set is sophisticated without being stuffy, and the box can be used for years after to hold holiday trinkets.

I'm loving these beauty-themed crackers! The Frosted Rose Hand Therapy Cracker ($11 CAD, 25g) includes a festive hand cream in Frosted Rose, and again I love the packaging and designs. The scent of this is very lovely and not your typical powdery rose: Crabtree & Evelyn says it contains green ivy, mistletoe, myrtle, Christmas rose, and a hint of patchouli. The scent is a bit strong when first applied, but it mellows out and smells so, so great. The formula is also wonderful -- it sinks in very quickly and is a lifesaver for my dry winter hands.

Crabtree & Evelyn has many other gifts available, including different types of gift sets and crackers. They currently have 30% purchases of $25+ in-store, and I've seen hand cream gift sets 40% off at Sears.

This has been my first real glimpse at Crabtree & Evelyn (barring things tried here and there years ago), and I love what I'm seeing, and smelling! I definitely recommend them, especially the hand cream!

Merry almost-Christmas and may you have a pampered body throughout 2016!
