Christmas Gift Ideas - Bathtime Treats

Apparently the average person will spend around a year and an half of their life in the bathroom... With the amount of lathering, exfoliating and time spent soaking in bubbles, I wouldn't be surprised if this was actually more for some of us! We all love a good pamper, so in honour of this I'm bringing you some gorgeous Christmas gift ideas for the bath lover in your life! (Or yourself...!)

Lush Cosmetics Relax... Take A Bath - £12.75 - Link
For many people you really can't go wrong with a present from Lush. I thought this was a good price, it comes already gift wrapped and contains a lovely selection of treats for bathtime. The box contains a Twilight Bath Ballistic, a Dreamtime Luxury Bath Melt and a Dorothy Bubble Bar. Lush says this is the perfect present for someone who runs around after other people all day and forgets to take time for themselves. I would agree with this - it would definitely encourage me to stop and take some time out!

The Body Shop Ginger Sparkle Shower, Scrub and Moisture Collection - £17.00 - Link
I love this set! Not only does it include a 250ml Shower Gel, 50ml Body Butter, 75ml Body Polish and 25g Mini Heart Soap, but it comes in a reusable tin shaped like a gingerbread man! I had a quick whiff of the shower gel the other day and the spicy ginger scent is gorgeous and very festive. Although this is priced at £17.00, The Body Shop often have discounts and offers available, so it could probably be picked up cheaper.

Baylis and Harding Beauticology Stacking Gifts - £10.00 - Link
If you're looking for bathtime treats on a budget, Beauticology from Baylis and Harding seems to be the ideal option. You get a lot for your money and the packaging is very Philosophy-esque, which I think makes it look a lot more expensive. In this gift set you will find a 100ml Shower Creme, 100ml Body Wash, 50ml Body Lotion, 50ml Body Scrub, 25g of Bath Salt Crystals and a Body Polisher. Scents include gingerbread, cherry glaze, chocolate and vanilla frosting. Sounds good enough to eat!

Elemis Skin Nourishing Secrets - Soothing Bodycare Set - £45.00 - Link
Going to the opposite of budget now to an Elemis set, which sounds like pure indulgence! Perfect for someone who's a fan of Elemis or high end body/bath brands in general. The items sold separately are worth £70.00 and are a 400ml Elemis Sp@ Home Skin Nourishing Milk Bath and a 200ml Elemis Sp@ Home Skin Nourishing Body Scrub. The milk is rich in amino acids, vitamins and minerals and the scrub contains natural exfoliators rice and bamboo with sweet almond and macadamia, which equal nourished and conditioned skin.

Conscious Skincare Sweet Orange and Frangipani Bath Soak 250ml* - £15.99 - Link
This organic bath soak comes gorgeously packaged in a 100% recycled round cardboard gift tube with a seriously cute reindeer ribbon. It contains lots of lovely natural and organic ingredients and the scent of sweet orange and frangipani is as promised; warming, sensual and calming. An ingredient called Fragonia has been added to the scent mix, which brings a freshness that stops it being sickly sweet. A lovely treat, especially for a natural product lover.

NEOM Organics Organic Bath and Shower Indulgence Set* - £19.00 - Link
This set contains 6 5ml bath oils in three beautiful scents - Tranquility to relax (English Lavender, Sweet Basil and Jasmine), Real Luxury to pamper (Lavender, Jasmine and Brazilian Rosewood) and Complete Bliss to energise (Moroccan Blush Rose). They contain 30% essential oils and 70% certified organic ingredients including Safflower and Jojoba, which work to create super soft skin. To use them in the shower, you dab a little on your decolletage and the steam and oil mix to make your shower experience smell amazing!

What bathtime treats do you have your eye on for Christmas - either for yourself or someone else? I hope this posts helps you with some ideas!
