What is the 12 Days of Christmas Gift Box made of?
The gift box is made up from 12 separate ‘drawers’ which can be refilled for many years to come.
It’s a plastic free gift. The only plastic is in the form of a plastic sleeve which goes over the whole gift to stop the drawers falling out when you’re putting it away until the following year. Therefore it’s not a single use piece of plastic and will preserve the life of the gift for many years to come!
All jars and bottles supplied are glass and aluminium so are infinitely recyclable. Or why not wash them thoroughly once you’ve used the contents and save them to put stuff in for next year!
Soaps are wrapped in biodegradable compostable cellophane and the glitter in day 11’s soap is, of course, plastic free, biodegradable, cosmetic grade glitter.
So, do you want to know what’s in there or do you want a surprise?
I know you want a surprise but legally I have to tell you what’s in it and list the ingredients, so if you don’t want to know don’t scroll any further!
If you do want to know just scroll downwards.

- The 12 days of Christmas box comes protected by a plastic sleeve which, basically, holds it all in whilst in transit and until you’re ready to use it. It came as part of the 12 days kits – of which I had to assemble every single piece by hand. I could have not used it but I found that it’s a very practical piece of necessary plastic as, when you’ve used the 12 days box, you can put it away until next year and just slide the sleeve back over the boxes to keep them all where they are supposed to be so nothing gets lost. It will prolong the life of the 12 days box and will ensure it will stay together through many years of use – so I decided to use it.
Enjoy your 12 days of Christmas box and bear in mind that it’s a luxury item for adults – children get enough presents! xxx
