GIFTS UN­DER PGK150 Body wash

What’s in­side this Bathing Cul­ture ‘mind and body wash’ bot­tle is or­ganic, biodegrad­able and allpur­pose, but re­ally it’s the pack­ag­ing that makes it wor­thy of be­ing a Christ­mas gift. De­signed to be gen­tle on the en­tire body and made with­out tox­ins, sul­phates, parabens, syn­thetic fra­grances or dyes, it’s also in­spired by North­ern Cal­i­for­nia’s red­wood forests so it smells in­sanely good.

Con­ver­sa­tion cards

Ac­cord­ing to The School of Life, an or­gan­i­sa­tion ded­i­cated to de­vel­op­ing emo­tional in­tel­li­gence, “a great con­ver­sa­tion al­ways starts with some­one ask­ing a great ques­tion”. Which is why they cre­ated these con­ver­sa­tion cards, de­signed to get us talk­ing in a more en­ter­tain­ing and mean­ing­ful way. Whether they’re used dur­ing hol­i­days or over the din­ner ta­ble, ques­tions like “what are the best things you owe your par­ents?” or “what’s the best evening you ever had?” are sure to spice up the ban­ter.
