For the first time, Lush will launch two reusable advent calendars. The LUSH Advent Calendar and Christmas Buds Advent Calendar are now available for pre-order online and in LUSH shops from November 2023. Both reusable gift boxes are made from recycled cardboard and the ribbons are made from recycled plastic bottles.
LUSH ADVENT CALENDAR (AED 995)
Featuring a carefully selected range of 25 vegan products to bring joy in the lead-up to the big day, this year’s LUSH Advent Calendar is packaged in a limited-edition box and features more retro and exclusive products than ever before. The box has been designed by Andre Williams from Intoart, a London-based studio for people with learning disabilities. Andre’s Advent Calendar design also features the word ‘Celebrate’ in 23 different languages. “This box is a big party. It’s dancing feet, a shimmy shake, a boogie-woogie and a celebration. It’s the good time for everyone,” said Andre Williams.
CHRISTMAS BUDS ADVENT CALENDAR (AED 695)
This interactive Advent Calendar contains 25 carefully curated bathing treats that will leave the entire family feeling festive. It features Lush classics as well as festive exclusives and returning retro favourites such as Chocolate Santa Bath Bomb, Snow Angel Bath Melt and Snowman Bubbleroon.
Rachel Norden, Lush senior gifts designer, said, “This is inspired by memories of playing with doll houses and my imagination of what Santa’s workshop would look like. I would love for someone to keep the box and use it as a doll house or playhouse for many Christmases to come, and also encourage imagination in all generations. The design is in my “buds” style which keen eyes will recognise from previous gifts and knot wraps. I’ve added a few new characters into the design that have also become products inside the gift box. Look out for Lump of Coal, Groovy Fairy, and Penguin.”
