With six elegant gift kits that honour naturalists from around the world, Aesop has outdone itself with its Christmas offerings

Okay, it's a little early for Christmas, but with many brands offering their seasonal coffrets and limited edition wares from as early as late October, it's never too late to start planning ahead. The perfect gift for the chic minimalist in your life who pretty much turns up his or her nose at any old present? An Aesop gift set. This year, the brand's 'Pursuits of Passion' sets celebrate the work of naturalists, and are decorated with the quirky, nature-inspired art of Norwegian artist Bendik Kaltenborn — think muted pastel hues of pink and green blended with grey tones.
The Avid Explorer
Our favourite set from the six? The lavish Avid Explorer kit that contains well-loved favourites like the Aromatique Hand Wash and Hand Balm as well as a Body Cleanser and Body Balm. Talk about a hand to toe treat. Whether it's a gift to self or presented to a deserving someone, this is one thing under thr tree that will not disappoint. 

Available from November at Aesop stores and counters
