For a treasure trove of Christmas gifts think L’Occitane

From luxurious skincare to delicious fragrances, L’Occitane en Provence has indulgent treats to suit everyone on your Christmas list

For over 40 years L’Occitane has been developing natural beauty products inspired by the Provençal  art-de-vivre. Known for the luxuriousness of its products - made using the finest active ingredients -  its award winning range includes everything from its signature Shea Butter Hand Cream to its suitably named anti-ageing skincare range, Divine.

This year the brand brings two beautiful advent calendar gift options to market. A veritable selection box of goodies for grown-ups, they bring a touch of festive luxury to the countdown to Christmas.

L'Occitane's Classic Advent Calendar packs more than €100 worth of treats into a beautifully designed gift that costs just €59. Indulge someone you love – possibly yourself – and each day will reveal best selling L'Occitane products such as Verbena Shower Gel, Shea Butter Hand Cream, Repairing Shampoo and Almond Shower oil.

Or dial up the luxe and opt for L'Occitane's Luxury Advent Calendar. In line with the festive spirit of generosity, it is packed with €151 worth of goodies for a specially discounted price of just €99. This beautifully designed gift comes in a desktop format, with 24 drawers filled with moments of luxury such as L'Occitane's award-winning Divine Cream, and its sensual Terre de Lumière Eau de Parfum. As each drawer is emptied, it can be turned around to form a festive Christmas picture.

And if you're looking for gifts for the big day itself, L'Occitane has gift ideas to suit every pocket. Gorgeous metallic tree Baubles contain a trio of goodies from its best selling collections including Cherry BlossomVerbena and Shea Butter for just €12 each.

Mix fragrance and froth with L'Occitane's Bath and Shower Collection, four 75ml delightful products in luscious Cherry Blossom, Lavender and Aromachologie ranges, for €28.

L'Occitane's Shea Butter Gift Collection is great value luxury: a collection of Shea Milk Soap, Shea Hand and Body Wash, Shea Hand Cream and Shea Ultra Rich Body Cream costs €59, even though it contains goodies worth €68.50.

There are fabulous gift ideas for men too. L'Occitane's L'Homme Cologne Cedrat Collection includes a shower gel, eau de toilette, soap and after shave balm at a special festive price of €69 (it's worth €94).

If you haven’t experienced Terre de Lumière yet, you’re in for a treat. Inspired by Provence’s Golden Hour, that moment at dusk when the sky is filled with golden and purple light, it is L’Occitane’s first ‘gourmand’ aromatic fragrance, zesty and aromatic with notes of honey and almond.

The Terre de Lumière Collection includes Eau de Parfum, Gentle Shower Gel, Body Lotion, Soap and Radiant Balm and costs €92. If you were to buy the contents individually, you'd pay €25 more.

And for the skincare fanatic in your life, Divine Harmony is L'Occitane's most advanced anti-ageing range ever, proven to help firm and smooth the skin, brighten the complexion and lift and redefine facial contours. A gift pack containing Divine Harmony Serum, Divine Harmony Cream and Immortelle Oil Make Up Remover is available at a special Christmas price of €355.

All L'Occitane gift boxes come in their own beautiful gifting packages. And when you give one, you're gifting to more than just the intended recipient. The L'Occitane Foundation, the company's philanthropic wing, supports the fight against avoidable blindness in developing countries around the world. This Christmas L'Occitane will donate €15 to CBM Ireland for every Best of L'Occitane Gift Box sold in Ireland, to fight avoidable blindness in Zambia. The Best of L'Occitane Gift Box will retail at €85 and has a value of €92.50.
