Gift Guide: philosophy's Land of Hope and Wonder Holiday Collection

holiday gift ideas philosophy sephora canada girlThere is an endless list of reasons why Christmas is my absolute favourite time of year, but one of them is checking out all of the special holiday collections! Whether you're roped in by pretty packaging (like me), or appreciate a good bargain and the limited edition scents that come along with it, it's hard to avoid them. If you're still on the hunt for the perfect Christmas gift, or need a last minute stocking stuffer, here are some of the offerings from the philosophy holiday collection!

I personally love this brand. I always find myself reading the "philosophy" on each item whenever I pass one in a store because I think they're adorable. This year, philosophy's holiday collection puts a Nutcracker-inspired twist on their classic skincare, fragrance and bath/body sets. 


Sparkling Hollyberries Duo - $32

This is 100% my favourite item from the collection. I have no idea how to accurately describe the smell of "sparkling hollyberries" to you, but it's a citrus-like scent that I can't get enough of. For comparison purposes, it smells quite similar to the Soap & Glory body butters. This duo is ideal if the person you're shopping for has never used any philosophy products, because it allows them to try both a body lotion and one of their classic shampoo/shower gel/bubble bath combos.

Renewed Hope for the Holidays - $62

If you've ever been to Sephora, you've definitely seen the "renewed hope in a jar" line because it's usually a featured item in the skincare section. This gift set contains the refreshing and refining eye cream, moisturizer, and overnight moisturizer. Again, this is a great way to try out a variety of their skincare products (in a decent size!).

Shampoo/Shower Gel/Bubble Bath - $22 each

I have loved philosophy's shampoo/shower gel/bubble bath combos for quite a while now. They're truly one of the best multi-tasking products; they're ideal if you have limited space in your shower or bath, and are really useful for travelling if you want to bring less products. For the holidays, they come in a variety of special scents, including the two pictured above!


Take A Deep Breath Ornament - $20

Last, but not least, there are ornaments! The one pictured above contains a trial-size of the "take a deep breath" oxygenating gel cream moisturizer. The other ornaments available include the "amazing grace" spray fragrance, "hands of hope" cream, "purity made simple" cleanser, and the "renewed hope in a jar" moisturizer. This holiday packaging is Christmas-tree ready if you're willing to actually use it as an ornament, but their size also makes them the perfect stocking stuffers.


Hopefully this gift guide has given you some inspiration, or at least piqued your interest in checking out some of the special Christmas collections out there. All of the products above are available at SephoraShoppers Drug Mart, and the BayHappy shopping!


Disclaimer: I purchase most of the products I review on my blog myself, but sometimes I’m lucky enough to have the opportunity to try and review products sent by brands for consideration. I'm also lucky to have some amazing friends that may give me a gift or two from time to time. That being said, any thoughts and views expressed are always 100% honest and straight out of my own crazy brain.
