Nothing takes up more time during Christmas than gift shopping. And each year i’ve noticed the list keeps growing and growing & GROWING to the point where it becomes less fun seeking out that perfect gift for your loved one.
So early November when I was invited to preview Crabtree & Evelyns extensive seasonal gifting selection, I was thrilled at the opportunity to make my lists leisurely and get to the store before the best stuff sold out!
Since it’s the first weekend of December and many of you are starting to shop for those all important gifts, I hope my little gift guide comes handy to plan your purchases before heading to the store where you are bound to be overwhelmed.
So here’s a bunch of stuff that I thought would fit various budgets and came packaged so beautifully, half of the work is already done.
Welcome to Crabtree & Evelyns Christmas 2014 collection!
As always my eyes go right to the prettiest packaging >.<
Like this gorgeous diffuser, first thing on my list! And it even makes a gorgeous yet functional table centerpiece!
The clay dove is just the perfect design detail that makes this gift extra special don’t you think? ❤
This one’s priced at S$98.
Next up, candles! To fill your homes with the warming scent of winter berries or a mix of balsams and citrus infused with star anise.
These come in several sizes and make for lovely gifts. Prices start at S$38 for the small one, S$50 for the large and S$75 for the extra large three wick candle (seen above).
There’s also corresponding room sprays S$30 and fragrance oil S$18.
No Crabtree & Evelyn gift guide is complete without some of their most popular items. The hand cream sets! A complete sell out each year, these come in boxes of 12, 6 and 3. Priced at $78, $55, $30 respectively.
I also think they make excellent stocking stuffers as each work out to just over S$6! With one set you have 12 stocking stuffers sorted! Easy peasy!
Another C&E speciality are their delicious english cookies, preserves and fudge!
They all come packaged soo beautifully. I personally like those in the tins. They feel more substantial.
Here’s half a kilo of biscuits in a barrel! Flavours include, Lemon and white chocolate, Triple chocolate chunk and Strawberries and cream. This set retails at S$68.
P.S- There are also biscuit tins in musical box versions! How fun!
If you are looking for hamper style assortments. You are covered! Here’s a drool worthy set of preserves, biscuits and tea in a collectible tin. Retails at S$68.
And how adorable is the packaging!!!!
Last but not least, decadent holiday hampers that come beautiful red boxes and also in picnic basket style wicker boxes for the generous gift giver. Prices start from S$80 for this small box, seen below; ranging up to S$300 for boxes filled with an assortment of biscuits, fudge, preserves, sparkling wine and much more!
So there you have it! My mini tour of Crabtree & Evelyns holiday offerings. There’s of course 100+ gifts in store to brows through! And I promise you, you are bound to find the perfect gift, if not several with just one trip!
Happy shopping my dears 🙂
