Even though I'm very much aware that I've not started preparing for Christmas shopping, I'm going to start talking about Christmas gift sets. Perhaps I'll get myself in the mood to start making a list. For some reason it just feels too early for me yet, even though I love Christmas! But, this gift set from Orla Kiely actually isn't too Christmassy at all - you could give it to someone at any time of year and the unmistakable and coveted stem print is sure to delight.
If you have friends that love a luxe label as well as their bath and body products, I think you have their Christmas gift sorted right here. I'm a bit of a sucker for Orla Kiely's classic stem print and was really excited when I knew this was winging its way to me through the post. I was also surprised to find out that this gift set only costs £12 - I would have guessed about £20.
This set is part of the geranium bath and body collection which includes four different gift sets priced between £12 and £24 - I can't see them all on the Orla Kiely and John Lewis sites just yet, but I'm told that's where they'll all be available. The set I received is the mini bath and hand sets which includes a 50ml size shower gel, hand wash, hand lotion and body lotion.
I wasn't sure what to expect from the geranium scent - I wondered if it might smell similar to rose, which I sometimes don't like, but it's very different. It does smell very floral but also sort of citrusy at the same time. They're pretty heavily scented too, which I like. I don't think there's much point buying scented products that are so delicate the smell has disappeared five seconds after you've used them.
These are now looking beautiful up on my bathroom shelf :)
Will these make it onto your Christmas shopping list?
