Edinburgh, Scotland (PRWEB) December 18, 2009
The Body Shop, known as an ethical beauty brand, has created a new gift finder tool, helping those searching for ideas for Christmas gifts.
The new online Christmas gift (http://www.thebodyshop.com/_en/_ww/beauty-lounge/christmas-gift-finder-all/index.aspx ) finder on The Body Shop site takes into consideration a number of factors to come up with the ideal gift. Customers simply use a series of sliders to indicate the age of the person being bought for, whether the gift is for a best friend or for a Secret Santa, the part of the body the gift is for and a number of other factors. The gift finder tool will then offer a number of suitable present ideas. The tool will even suggest random gifts for those who can't decide on a present.
Gifts that customers can find with the new tool include favourites from The Body Shop (http://www.thebodyshop.com/global ) such as fragrance gifts, cosmetic bags, bath time treats, essential oils and skin care products, many of which include the benefits of natural ingredients. It seems that during the harsh economic climate, people are turning their homes into their own personal havens to retreat to, leading to an increase in sales of home spa products and indulgent treats to use in the comfort of their homes.
This winter sees the arrival of seasonal bath, body and home fragrance collections, bursting with naturally-derived ingredients and festive fragrances like Black Velvet Apricot, Nutmeg and Vanilla and Merry Cranberry. It's also easy for customers to personalise their presents with unique The Body Shop collections of bags and boxes, which are ready to be filled with shoppers' bespoke gifts.
