During this year’s Christmas period, The Body Shop has partnered with Children on the Edge. Since 1990 they have been continuously working alongside the Global charity to find creative solutions to support vulnerable children for over 30 years.
Today, the “edge” takes them into refugee camps, slums, and warzones where they support Rohingya, Congolese, and Syrian refugee children, and those facing internal displacement, caste discrimination, poverty, and exploitation. Learn more.
Eco Friendly Gift Guide
Give a little more sustainably this year with wonder-filled gifts that love your body and are kinder to the planet. From nature-inspired goodies enriched by our Community Fair Trade partners, to treats that can be repurposed or recycled,*** this is our ultimate guide to more eco-friendly Christmas gifts.
Gifts That Give Back
This Christmas, we’re wishing for a fairer future for all. That’s why our gifts are enriched with ingredients from our Community Fair Trade partners. Each time you buy one, you’re not only giving wonder to your loved ones, but you’re also supporting the women who produce them and the girls in their community.
Our Community Fair Trade programmes are our way of sourcing ethical, high-quality ingredients and materials from producers, farmers, and artisans across the globe. It helps our suppliers gain market access and invest in social and environmental projects that benefit their communities. And helps us fill our Christmas gifts and products with the good stuff. Here are a few of our favourites:
SPICED ORANGE BODY BUTTER, £18
CALM & CAMOMILE CLEANSING GIFT, £25
Gifts That Keep on Giving
Everyone loves to spoil their loved ones at Christmas, but we know being conscious about how much we’re consuming around this time of year is important too. That’s why we’ve rounded up some goodies that can be reused, recycled* or come in re-giftable packaging. This year, we’ve switched to reusable vanity cases across many of our bath and body gifts, saving paper. Plus, they’re perfect for storing all those beauty essentials once all your goodies are used up.
SOOTHE & SMOOTH ALMOND MILK MINI GIFT, £12
ORANGES & STOCKINGS SPICED ORANGE ESSENTIALS GIFT, £23
FRESH & FESTIVE EDELWEISS GIFT, £60

Gifts that are made with naturally derived materials, so we can help cut back on the amount of plastic in the environment. For some of our gifts, we also support small-scale artisans who source and craft them.
