If you are anything like me, you have the tendency to leave Christmas shopping at the very last, just because you need to have a look of what the world out there has to offer, then you finally realise it’s not too long until Santa comes to town, and you haven’t made up your mind with anything in particular. Not to worry, I am here to help you find something nice that does not break the bank for your secret Santas, and the ‘oh my God she has everything!’, or that aunt you haven’t seen for yonks but she’s coming for Christmas lunch!
The answer for all your question is Le Couvent des Minimes, a gorgeous natural French product range that is all about the natural and original recipes from the botanist monks of the Minimes in Mane – France. All the products are characterised by amazing fragrances and textures.
For filling your stockings: there is a wide choice of hand creams, scrubs, cuticle cream (£7) for the girl that is always doing her nails, or a leg soother (£12) for your friend that works in retail and will need tons of this for the Boxing day sales!
For a touch of luxury: you cannot go wrong with the Luxury Gift Set (£20), with a floral-fruity blend, or the Botanical Recipe of the Morning*, my personal favourite scent, as it has a nice citrusy awakening smell that makes me feel like I’m Greece or Sicily for some weird reason! They both contain products that would sort your pamper session from the shower to when you’re out the door. I also find is perfect as a gift for a couple that just moved in for example as they can share the products, and the lady in question will benefit of some body lotion her other half might have an hard time using.
If you still need more inspiration your Christmas shopping you can head here for my previous instalment!
