If seeing the fairy lights and tinsel streamers festooning our busiest shopping strip puts the fear of gift hunting in you, then you'd likely count yourself in the 89 per cent of people who find buying presents stressful. An unsurprisingly large number, courtesy of a global gifting survey conducted by The Body Shop, we've all been there figuratively tearing our hair out a time or two over who, what and which to get — with the male half of the population spazzing out more than the women (sorry, dudes, but stats don't lie).

Lump in the dreaded seven-year itch whereby you've lost all creativity and enthusiasm when it comes to bestowing a special something for the significant other/loved ones/BFFs, it goes without saying the gifting well is starting to run a tad dry. The solution? Hit up the nearest Body Shop. With the most wildly extensive offerings to date, all you need to do is stress less and put a bow on these head-to-toe goodies to be crowned gift guru of the year.

Seasonal treats
Spice up the holiday air with a trio of limited edition scents and sets spanning the olfactory spectrum from North American juicy berries to Madagascar's warm vanilla, and even crisp apples straight from the Alps. A unique coffret is yours to curate that includes body butters, shower gels, fragrance oils and scented candles for the ultimate pamper bundle that checks all the boxes when it comes to cosy Christmas nights in.

Skincare picks
Much-deserved TLC doesn't get better than deluxe gift sets that revitalise and rejuvenate your skin for that merry glow, especially for those after-party mornings when you need a bit of plump and prep. Cult favourite complexion rescuers such as the Drops of Youth and Oils of Life (among many others) are neatly trussed up in festive trappings for to-go gifting and getting, while a superfood pair from the Body Shop's latest range of Expert Facial Masks makes a fresh alternative for all your Secret Santa exchanges.
