Kicking off the holiday season with fervent zeal is Philosophy, an American cult beauty brand whose Christmas sets have always been a delight to give and receive. Inspired by wonder and happiness, they're topping off the wish list again this year with a bevy of limited edition skincare, fragrance and bath offerings that are simply bliss for your visual and olfactory senses. 

Get fired up for festive gifting with these charming choices:

The little things

For a Christmas tree surprise, gift an adorable bauble in the form of a Philosophy ornament that will look as good hung on a sprig as it does sitting beneath the leafy canopy. These trinkets are miniaturised best-sellers that will also double as cute stocking stuffers and convenient travel-sized takeaways. As the saying goes, good things come in small packages.

Cozy layers

No Yuletide season is complete without a signature scent that evokes the memories of love, warmth and joy. Philosophy's deluxe layering sets include coordinating spray fragrances, three-in-one shampoo, bath and shower gels, as well as whipped body crèmes to wrap you in lush decadence. Smelling marvelous and merry has never been more prettily bow-tied and boxed.

For those who can't enough of Philosophy in the shower, go forth and collect each and every unique festive scented gels, such as candy cane, snow angel and shimmering snowlace.

Care packages

In the spirit of remembrances and renewals, there's nothing more apt than presenting your loved ones with a lavish kit of Philosophy face and skincare goodies for a refreshed glow to face the oncoming New Year. Filled with crowd favourites, these sumptuous sets are equal parts indulging and invigorating. These will have you looking and feeling amazing every day, even well beyond the holidays.

Available at Sephora stores and the Philosophy boutique at Ngee Ann City
