There’s no greater joy than giving, and The Body Shop’s new, best ever Christmas gift collection is bursting with love and care. This year, they’re spreading love and kindness with stocking sized treats and epic showstoppers packed with body-loving goodness for everybody and every budget.
Featuring packaging that’s kinder to the planet with clever, reusable constructions, this year’s line-up also supports The Body Shop’s Community Fair Trade partners behind their most-loved gift boxes and jute bags. Plus, every purchase over the Christmas period will help support thousands of children who have lost their families or primary caregivers to the Covid-19 pandemic. The Body Shop India will provide access to school supplies and quality healthcare.
A GREENER CHRISTMAS
The Body Shop’s gift packaging is more sustainable than ever before. The last remaining plastic components have been removed from their advent calendars, saving 29 tonnes (that’s around 112,000 Christmas baubles!) Plus, they’ve expanded their range of bath and body accessories made with sustainable alternatives to plastic.
Their bath lilies are now more sustainable than ever, made with ramie, an eco-friendly fibre, helping to save over 50 tonnes of plastic across the whole collection. That’s the same as 1.8 million plastic water bottles.
And to make buffing that body a little better for the planet, they’ve created a jute scrubber, handmade with materials sourced through their Community Fair Trade partner, and a new biodegradable konjac sponge.
And the cherry on the top? They’ve designed most of their gift packaging to be reused or repurposed too, so your treats and surprises have a long life after Christmas.

Get Paper Industry, The Body Shop’s Community Fair Trade partner since 1989, has handcrafted this year’s beautiful gift boxes using recycled paper and upcycled cotton offcuts. Each box shares uplifting stories of the women who made them.
Based in Nepal, they offer fair and equal pay to their predominantly female workforce, and provide social initiatives that support the local community.
“GPI provided a safe and positive work environment which has allowed me to support my family, and my daughter to pay for her own tuitions,” says GPI artisan Sita Bishwakarma. “When I think that my daughter could achieve her ambition to become a civil engineer someday, I feel so happy and proud.”
The Body Shop’s first ever Community Fair Trade partner, Teddy Exports, has also crafted this year’s gorgeous gift pouches made with 100% natural jute. In a partnership spanning over 30 years, Teddy Exports has grown from five craftspeople to providing fair pay and work for over 600 people in 30 villages, and funded innovative healthcare initiatives and education for thousands of children.
