    I think stuff like this is one of the most godawful presents possible to receive, but judging by the posts on this thread, yes, she'll probably like it.

    ugh! I can't believe i missed out on it

    Do you reckon there's any chance of them still being in stock in the actual store? might go down tomorrow to the two closest ones just to check.

    Hit and miss, there are stores that still have them (check out S&G facebook for updates) and every now and then small amounts come back instock online of course if you want it before christmas youre unlikely to get it.

    As you can tell from the above (thousands of posts) S&G is exceptionally popular and this box is full of approx. £70 worth of products (not counting the tote/box/bath scrub) so while there are some people that hate the smell/this type of gift most women wont. Also Stringer, I normally hate toiletries/perfume gifts but Ive bought myself one of these, having never tried the range, because all of the products are useful and they are so highly rated plus the bargain element. I would advise putting something in the bottom of the box whether its tissue paper or wrapping paper scrunched up to make it look fuller or if you want to spend a bit more money then a dressing gown/slippers.

    They say that but they have received at least 3/4 lots online in the last 2 days.

    Last years was better in my opinion and it sold out much faster. In the store I usually work out, there's tonnes of them left!

    It didnt sell out much faster theyve stocked over double this year because the hatbox sold out so fast so they have constant new deliveries this time.

    ooh, have you got the link for that? I can't seem to find it myself. And apparently, they're defintely out of stock everywhere and not coming back -going off a person from the mse forum who called several stores.

    Lol, yeah. I can tell it's popular.

    Well, personally I do love a splash of perfume etc but I've never been one for reams and reams of overhyped highly specific beauty products. Just not my thing!

    Are they better than Lush? Or is the difference negligible?

    Thanks. I have a massive Lush hamper at home but the S&G website has seduced me. The packaging is certainly better than Lush's crappy black pots!
