October is here! Yeah, I’m kinda 15 days late to announce that. This is the time of the year when I miss my home country. In Philippines, all shopping malls will be beaming with Christmas decorations by this month. Christmas songs will be playing in the radio, TV shows will be starting with Christmas themes, offices will be planning for celebrations and, best of all, shopping season will be in the air! To satisfy my craving for this season of gifts, I’ve decided to start posting about gift items and share gift ideas.
Personally, I enjoy receiving bath and body products in a set. But what makes it even more special is presentation. The way gifts are presented can make the actual gifts look more expensive or cheaper than their true value. It’s not that your gift should look expensive but paying attention to presentation sends a message that you took the time and effort to make it special to a friend or loved one. This is why I appreciate brands that provide extra service and care with their gift sets.
For this first round of gift sets, I’ve chosen to share a Cherry Blossom set from L’Occitane. I chose a Cherry Blossom set of body lotion and shower gel. When I told the sales staff that it’s a gift, she carefully arranged it in a gift box. That’s great service. The box is very reflective of the brand – calming, peaceful, nature-inspired.

I loved the pink paper with a clever, simple touch of the brand stamp sticker.

The products were neatly tucked under the pink paper. I’d be happy to receive something like this and I do hope my friend did enjoy this set.

What’s even greater after buying several items from L’Occitane that day was receiving this lovely set of miniature fragrances. This box contained 4 different scents: Jasmin & Bergamote, Magnolia & Mure, Vanille & Narcisse, The Vert & Bigarade. All in 7.5ml each. I liked the Jasmin & Bergamote.
