To make selecting the perfect present that bit easier, we spoke to a few familiar faces about their favourite festive gifts, to guide and hopefully make your Christmas shopping fuss-free this year!

Nadine Reid @nadinereid

“Gifts from L’OCCITANE are gifts of elegance and finesse. All generations of women in my family love the products and all the Christmas gift sets this year are so beautiful, you will want to keep the boxes, tins and bags. I love any gift which includes the Immortelle Divine Cream or the Overnight Reset Serum.

“I first discovered L’OCCITANE through their heavenly hand creams and it’s a tradition each year to gift a big tube to my mum. This year, the beautiful golden tube of the Youth Hand Cream with immortelle flower extract is my top pick for the perfect stocking filler. Other festive treats are the 13 Desserts Scented Candle and Home Perfume which make the perfect host or hostess gift to bring with you to any festive gatherings you might attend this year!”

Naomi Jane Adams

“I’m gifting my friend the Relaxing Home Duo! She has been studying and working so hard all year, and always there for whenever I need help with work. I just want her to relax during her festive break off and enjoy some serenity and me-time at home!”

Dean Kenny

“My absolute favourite L’OCCITANE gift set is the Cap Cedrat Collection. This is the perfect thing to gift to that special man in your life. It includes three must have products in any wash bag: an eau de toilette, shower gel and after shave gel. This will keep that special man in your life looking and smelling great.”

Geraldine Tan

“My favourite L’OCCITANE products are the Festive Baubles because they are so beautifully packaged and make great additional surprise gifts. I'm planning on having them in my Christmas table setting this year.”

Karen Constantine

"One of my favourite gifts to give at Christmas is the Immortelle Divine Trilogy. I know that I'm giving the gift of beautiful, glowing, brighter skin and whoever gets it will be a L'OCCITANE fan for life because of the incredible results!"

Jenni Falconer

“I personally love the L’OCCITANE Almond Shower Oil, it is so luxurious. This year I will be gifting the Almond Body Care Collection to my mum so she can indulge and have a little pamper this Christmas.”

Melissa Abbott

“My absolute favourite product to gift from L’OCCITANE is the Relaxing Pillow Mist! I’ve been using it for years. I find it helps me unwind and relax after a busy day!”

Anna Hart @annaelerihart

“For me, it’s got to be the Overnight Reset Collection. The serum is my absolutely go-to and there isn’t a friend I’ve recommended this to who isn’t hooked. The set means you gift an entire skincare regime, and comes beautifully boxed. I’ve got it for two people this year, and know they’re going to love it.”

Joanne Coughlan @lipstickn_leopardprint

"L'OCCITANE is always my go to for Christmas shopping. They have gifts for all of the special people in your life. It’s difficult, but if I had to choose a favourite gift it would be the Cherry Blossom Luxury Collection. It was the very first L'OCCITANE fragrance that I fell in love with and it evokes very special memories for me."

Alice du Parcq

"My sister is a huge perfume fan - it's such a fun bonding topic for us given that I turned my own fragrance obsession into my career! She would love this Terre de Lumière Gift Collection; the soft hazy lavender, syrupy honey, warm amber and enveloping tonka bean base makes me think of our childhood summer evenings in France and it's just the right level of sophistication and glam without feeling overpowering. Plus, the body balm and soap will give her an opportunity to enjoy some much-deserved scented self-care time."

Jess Warner

“I absolutely love L’OCCITANE and use their products all year round, but it turns out so does Russ, my partner, when I’m not looking! I wondered how I got through my Shea Ultra Rich Comforting Face Cream quite so quickly! So, for Christmas I’ll be giving him his very own products from the men’s range, the Aromatic L'Occitan Collection. The products smell so sensual and luxurious. Complete with an Eau de Toilette, Shower Gel and After Shave Balm, it should keep him away from my face cream!”

Liv Lewis

“My favourite L’OCCITANE Christmas gift has to be to the Relaxing Home Duo containing candle and pillow mist. It makes the perfect present for a loved one or some much needed self-care to yourself! They are always my go-to for a real treat.”
