Among the hustle and bustle of the festive season, finding thoughtful presents for everyone on your list can leave you feeling burnt out before December even begins. To help take some of the stress out of gift giving - and ensure that you and your recipient remain firmly Zen - we've rounded up some calming Cowshed treats that are guaranteed to suit everyone.
For the self-care convert
Dedicating time to winding down is essential for your mental and physical wellbeing, so what could be better than gifting the self-care advocate a hamper packed full of calming Cowshed essentials? In this wooden box, which can be repurposed as handy storage or a rustic decoration, the lucky recipient will find a nine-piece line-up to supplement round-the-clock relaxation. With bath and body favourites, including the Relax Body Lotion and skincare saviours like the Replenishing Serum, let the self-care commence.

For the house-proud hero
Complete with a retro caddy to keep sinkside hand care products tidy and organised, the Winter Hand Care Caddy is as chic as it is practical - and will make the perfect finishing touch in the kitchen or bathroom. Housed inside the black caddy are the Refresh Hand Wash and Refresh Hand Cream, each blended with a revitalising combination of Grapefruit, Bitter Orange and Lavender essential oils to nourish hands and keep them in optimum condition.

For the wanderluster
We all have that travel-obsessed friend - the one whose Instagram account evokes a reaction that's equal parts envy and admiration. While you might not be able to treat them to their next plane ticket, you can arm them with an arsenal of travel favourites, so that they can take their Cowshed essentials with them wherever they go. In this festive-themed set, you'll find airport-friendly skincare minis that lend themselves to a complete five-step regime, plus a handy travel bag to keep them in.

For the fragrance fanatic
Any fragrance connoisseur worth their salt will already have an impressive collection of candles, so go one step further by gifting them the Electric Diffuser. Releasing long-lasting scent, as well as gently humidifying the air - which can help soothe skin against winter dryness - this minimal diffuser will fit seamlessly into any space. Don't forget to add our trio of bespoke essential oil blends that all have a unique therapeutic effect - whether that's waking them up or helping them to unwind.

For the night owl
Give your loved one the gift of a good night's sleep and they'll be forever in your debt, particularly if they're prone to restlessness or anxiety. The Sleep Ritual Hamper features nine Cowshed favourites to help lull your recipient into a peaceful slumber as they relax. Think tension-relieving bath salts and a scented pillow mist with matching candle, plus a host of skincare favourites and so much more, all designed to make the ritual of winding down before bed one worth prioritising.

For the party animal
With the festive season comes a whole host of social occasions usually involving overindulgence, which can leave skin looking and feeling tired and dull. Treat your friend who loves to burn the candle at both ends to the 24 Hour Illuminating Skincare Set, a curated selection of skin essentials promising to give their complexion an enviable glow. For long-lasting hydration from dawn to dusk, there's the Daily Moisturiser, plus the Mineral-Rich Sheet Mask and Essential Night Cream to give an extra boost of moisture. Finally, there's the Illuminating Serum, powered by an innovative brightening complex that fuses Marshmallow Root, Rice Bran and Liquorice Root.
