The Body Shop Personalised Body Butters


Oh, when we checked this out at The Body Shop's Christmas extravaganza, we got so super-excited. They're just the cleverest, cleverest thing. And so we've nipped into a store and had a few made up ourselves, for stocking fillers. (Look away now, goddaughters.)

Here's the deal: you purchase a favourite Body Butter (200 ml or 400 ml, priced from £14) at one of the participating stores (link below), and a consultant will help you create your personalised product with the name of the recipient on a special label.

You also get to choose the animal: panda, flamingo, tiger, deer. (We've gone massively tiger, BTW.)

What's more, for every specially selected Christmas gift that you splash out on at The Body Shop, they'll make a donation to protect endangered species and restore a square mile of rainforest, supporting their fab Bio Bridge Project (read more about that here), as well as animal protection projects in Malaysia and Indonesia. They've already restored over 8 million square metres of rainforest – and counting. (And that's before we bought OUR gifts...)

These are, by the way, just the tip of the iceberg gift-wise – so do have a good snoop around when you're in the store.
