I was very tempted to have this as a Christmas gift kind of post, but it still feels a tad too early for that and let’s be honest, this is something anyone would love at any time of year! So basically, Sweet Cecily’s have come out with some brand spanking new gift sets and they are dreamy as all hell.
There are 3 new sets up for grabs – The Winter Skincare Collection, The Coffee Lovers Collection and The Essential Pampering Collection – and they pretty much cover all bases! Of course it’d be a bit much to gift me all 3 collections so I received the Essential Pampering Collection which, to be honest, is definitely the one I would’ve picked myself. Here’s a quick little bit on each set (I know you’re curious) before I get into my thoughts!
THE WINTER SKINCARE COLLECTION £35
Protect and revive hardworking skin with nourishing Sea Buckthorn Hand Cream, Red Clay Face Mask, Limited Edition Chocolate Orange Lip balm and Spiced Winter Berry Bathbomb. This set comes in a 100% cotton drawstring bag which can be personalised with a name to make it a truly thoughtful gift that anyone would be excited to receive!
THE COFFEE LOVERS COLLECTION £24.95
We all have a friend that can’t face Monday morning without a hot mug of the good stuff! Give them a helping hand with a pouch of rich, mellow coffee which can be fully personalised (to ward off potential coffee thieves!) and a hand printed porcelain mug that reads “I don’t need an inspirational quote I just need coffee” all contained in a hand printed rustic hessian sack. There is also the option of adding a scrumptious Espresso Martini Lip Balm.
THE ESSENTIAL PAMPERING COLLECTION £22.95
After a long and tiring week, all anyone wants to do is relax and unwind with your favourite TV show or a good book. Sweet Cecily’s are here to give you a helping hand with a selection of indulgent skincare treats including Rose & Ylang Ylang bath salts, Coconut Hair Mask, invigorating Citrus & Walnut Body Scrub, a little pot of body butter (choose from Coconut or fruity Fig & Olive) and a handmade natural lip balm in a flavour of your choice. These little pots of joy come in a 100% cotton drawstring bag which can be personalised with a name which makes this a great gift; although we’re sure you won’t want to part with it!
So as I said, the Essential Pampering Collection is the one I bagged (get it lol) and let’s just start off by talking about how exciting the whole personalised bag situation is… As an Imogen it’s very rare to get anything with your name on (so much so that my mum picks up literally anything that has my name on now, usually kids stuff) so I LOVE that this has my name on it – plus if you’re stuck on what to get somebody, you get a lot more credit for getting something personalised as it seems like you’ve put more effort into it!
More importantly though – the contents! It definitely came at the perfect time for me as my hair was crying out for a good hair mask to rejuvenate it a bit and the body scrub was a great excuse to apply some tan for no reason and I can guarantee that whoever receives one of these bags of goodness will take at least one thing out and say ‘oh I need this!’. As you’d guess, it’s all perfect for a pamper night so this would be the perfect gift for someone that’s always on the go, or you know, for yourself because why not! All ingredients are handmade and natural for all you fussy gals out there and the smells are divine. Sadly, the gift wrap is a little bit extra but if you are giving this as a gift then I 100% recommend it – look how pretty!
So whether you’re starting on your Christmas shopping early or you’re still trying to figure out what to buy yourself from payday then this gets a big thumbs up from me and you can find all their pretty bits and bobs here!
