‘Tis the season of giving and Aesop’s 2021 holiday sets are thoughtful gifts that do just that. Besides putting a smile on the faces of the receivers, the Christmas collection, coined the Anatomy of Generosity, gives back to the community too.
In total, there are five seasonal assortments that are designed to honour and encourage everyday acts of kindness. Each kit, named after the values they signify, has been tied to a registered charity group with the same ideals and will be supported by the Aesop Foundation. And with names such as The Listener and The Mentor, the feel-good gift sets also serve as a token of recognition as they represent the values they embody for the giver.
All sets are presented in a reusable case made from 100% recycled paper pulp and contain aromatic and efficacious favourites from the brand that are known to lend pleasure to daily rituals. Ready to get a jump-start on your festive shopping list? Here are the five kits you can look forward to.
For starters, there’s The Advocate (SGD140), for the person who puts the collective voice before their own and who raises awareness for the underserved. A comprehensive care kit for hands and body, the set includes a Resurrection Aromatique Hand Wash (500 ml) and Hand Balm (75 ml), as well as a Citrus Melange Body Cleanser (100 ml) and Rind Concentrate Body Balm (100 ml).
Next up, The Forager (SGD60), a citrus-infused body care duo with the Citrus Melange Body Cleanser (100 ml) and Rind Concentrate Body Balm (100 ml), for those who are always working behind the scenes accumulating ideas and communal ties to nourish the collective.
And for those whose generous ears are always there for you, there’s The Listener (SGD105), an uplifting Geranium Leaf body care trio with a Body Cleanser (100 ml), Body Scrub (180 ml) and Body Balm (100ml).
