Today we had a preview of the LUSH ADVENT CALENDAR (I know, Christmas in the summer), but we have to tell you, this year it is something exceptionally special.
The Advent Calendar (£185) will launch later this month (26th) online and in Lush shops nationwide from 23rd September. This will be the first time the Lush Advent Calendar will be available to buy in shops.
It is beautifully presented in a reusable trunk made from 100% recycled materials, each Lush Advent Calendar contains 25 vegan products to discover and use every day and night in the lead up to Christmas day. Including 4 retro products from Lush Christmas past and 6 products that are exclusively available in the Lush Advent Calendar.
The packaging is something to behold, and actually something you can use all year round.
Inspired by a magical midnight wonderland, the Lush Advent Calendars elegant artwork design was created by London based designer, Sally Kelly. Sally has previously worked on new gift designs for Lush, everything she turns her hand to is distinguished by her free-flowing linework, exquisite sense of colour and richly appreciative eye for detail.
We love to create packaging that can have a life long after it has been gifted and our Advent Calendar is no exception. This handmade box has been designed with reuse in mind, not only creating a beautiful keepsake that can be used throughout the whole year but a box that could be re-gifted for another present or occasion.SUZIE HACKNEY, LUSH CREATIVE DIRECTION

Those looking for an alternative to the Lush Advent Calendar can also shop the 12 Days of Christmas gift (£75.00) for a fun and festive Christmas countdown. Featuring 12 products especially selected to bring you joy in the lead up to the big day, the 12 Days of Christmas gift will be available online from 22nd September and in Lush shops nationwide from 23rd September.
As much thought goes into where the packaging of your Lush gift boxes is sourced as the ingredients inside? The reusable Advent Calendar case is constructed and finished by hand using 100% recycled cardboard. The case also features ribbons made 100% from recycled drinks bottles.
To reuse packaging, simply remove the layers from within the case once the countdown to Christmas is complete. The metal clasps will then fix the lid into place and the handles on the side allow you to use the case like a luggage trunk.
