The holidays are the perfect time to indulge, whether that be sleeping in, having an extra helping of dessert, or treating yourself to a spa day. Philosophy is a brand that carries some of the best skincare and body products, all of which help you feel your best. One of the most popular products is their nourishing shower gels, which would make for the perfect gift for your mom, friend, or yourself. Check out the list below to find the best option for you!

Cinnamon Buns

If you prefer really sweet scents, then this shower gel is for you. All of Philosophy’s shower gels can also act as shampoo or bubble bath, so use this for all three purposes for the full effect. This scent, a combination of sugar and spice, isn’t overpowering, and lathers up well, leaving your skin soft and moisturized. Plus, the bottle includes a recipe for Cinnamon Buns!

Candy Cane

Peppermint is a universally energizing scent, making it great for an early morning wake-up or for after the gym when you’re feeling tired. Not only is the scent festive, but it’s also soothing. Give this to your roommate who has an 8 AM class or to your sister who travels for work and needs a pick me up!

Snow Angel

This shimmery shower gel is bound to get you into the holiday spirit. With a sweet saying printed on the bottle, it’ll brighten your day. This gel actually comes in a smaller ornament size, which would make for a cute stocking stuffer or for a Yankee Swap. If you really love the scent, pair it with the body lotion for the full effect!

Christmas Cookbook Set

This tiny set features four different mini shower gels, which is perfect for trying out a variety of scents and figuring out which one you love best or giving each out to a few friends. The Vanilla Bean Nutmeg is a mix of sweet and spicy, the Pumpkin Icing is sugary with a hint of cinnamon, the Cinnamon Stick is deliciously spiced, and the Fresh Cream is clean, sweet, and simple. Any girl would be happy to receive this!
