The Crabtree & Evelyn 2014 Holiday Collection (My Picks)

Crabtree & Evelyn 2014 Holiday Collection

 

The holiday season is the perfect time to travel, especially since nobody’s really going to be at work anymore. But if you, like me, are going to be spending December at home, there’s no better time and place to indulge in the festive mood. This year, the Crabtree and Evelyn 2014 Holiday Collection is heavily inspired by the wanderlust bug that lives in us all. Take note, for you too, can travel to London right in your own home.

 

To be honest, the last two months of each year is the best time to stock up on our long-time favourites, the Hand Therapy tubes from Crabtree & Evelyn! The reason being that they can be found in trios and in tins and boxes of 12. That’s really good value, and these tubes honestly do make for great little gifts for your girlfriends. In addition, they smell superb; And what fun is it when your friends can pick the scents they love most?

 

Crabtree & Evelyn 2014 Holiday Collection

The Deluxe Hand Therapy Sampler (Pink), S$78. Scents include (from top left): Garderner’s, Rosewater, Nantucket Briar, Citron, Summer Hill, Pomegranate, Avocado, Evelyn Rose, Lily, Somerset Meadow, Pear & Pink Magnolia and Caribbean Island Wild Flowers.

The Limited Edition Hand Therapy Trio, S$33. This set features new and limited edition scents: Frosted Fruits, Iced Rose and Spiced Ginger!

 

The year-end is also the time when Crabtree & Evelyn launches their huge and oh-so-pretty vanity cases. Like this one from the Pear and Pink Magnolia range, which is my favourite of all the Crabtree & Evelyn ranges:

 

Crabtree & Evelyn 2014 Holiday Collection

Pear and Pink Magnolia Vanity Case, S$138. It includes a Body Wash (250ml), Body Lotion (250ml), Hand Therapy (100g) and Eau de Toilette (100ml).

 

And if the entire contents of the vanity cases are too much for you to bear, there are always the smaller sets that you can get at a fraction of the price. Since we’re on the topic of the Pear and Pink Magnolia range, here’s a look at their Perfect Pair duo:

And finally, to soothe any chapped lips this cold winter, there’s always the Lip Butter Trio – and the Lip Balm Trio – you can count on:

 

Crabtree & Evelyn 2014 Holiday Collection

The Lip Butter Trio, S$38. Scents include Crème de Menthe, Vanilla Crème Brûlée and Citron Crème & Honey. All lip butters are 14g each.

 

And then there was… food! We all know that when families gather, it’s all about keeping our tummies filled so that no one gets hungry. Kudos to all the home chefs out there for keeping us all happy! And if you’re in the coldest places on earth, you’ll need calories to burn to keep you warm. Crabtree and Evelyn does some wonderful food collection that are only available during the festive season.

 

Crabtree & Evelyn 2014 Holiday Collection

The Biscuit Assortment in a Musical Tin, S$68. It’s such a pretty tin!

The Collectable Design Tin, S$68. You might like to use this as the storage box for your sewing kit after you’re done with its contents!

 

Crabtree & Evelyn 2014 Holiday Collection

The Spiced Tea, S$25. You can use this to store unused makeup brushes when you’re done with the tea! It’s perfect for that, especially since it’s got a lid to prevent dust from collecting on the bristles.

 

To check out the entire range of festive food you can find, you’re going to have to drop by a Crabtree & Evelyn store near you. It’s so Christmassy in there, that I find it so hard to leave when I’m done shopping! Let’s take a look at some of the hampers they offer, just so we can find out more about what other items they have.

If you must walk away with only one thing from the festive food section, I recommend the Mint Green Tea! It’s a tea launched specially during this period and comes in a box of 10 sachets. When taken with some sugar, it brings your soul right to Morocco!

 

You’re sure to find something when you pop by Crabtree & Evelyn stores in the next few weeks. If you can, do share with us what you’ll be getting!

 

Stay yummylicious,
