Lush really know how to draw you in, don't they? Just when you think their ideas can't get any more interesting or innovative, they go ahead and unleash a gift set...that also doubles up as a MUSIC BOX. And not just any old music box - one that spins and sings and looks pretty damn awesome, wouldn't you say?
During my initial Christmas splurge in the Oxford Street store, I was introduced to this beautiful collection by one of the members of staff, and while I didn't buy it there and then, it stayed with me for the foreseeable weeks. In fact, although I wasn't planning on buying this set at all, a seed had been firmly planted in my mind, and some two weeks later, I found myself clicking on that 'add to basket' button and making the purchase.
Christmas Wishes Gift Set is such a great idea - a gift set packed full of the best Christmas bath products that can also be reused as a storage facility afterwards...an opportunity and an excuse for most Lush fans to fill the box with even more bath products to last the year.
This particular set features:
Priced up at £34.95, the contents of this collection come to £26.70, which means that you are paying an extra £8.25 for the box itself. While I would normally consider that an extortionate cost for the privilege of having it pre-wrapped and presented as a gift set, I must make an exception for this one.
The tin is a rather sturdy affair, and while I can't imagine the music lasting forever, the outer shell is pretty enough and strong enough to see you through a good many years. For younger fans, this gift set gives them a good many baths worth of enjoyment and a tin to fill with their favourite toys. For adults, the latter stands but would probably serve them better as an attractive ornament, jewellery box or storage box.
Whatever the receiver of Christmas Wishes Gift Set decides to do with their gift, they should be safe in the knowledge that they've been given one of Lush's most unique and interesting gift sets, and that they must be truly loved for someone to part with such a work of art.
2015 Price: £34.95 each.
