    I want to get a gift hamper / basket for my gf - either a toiletries or a food one.

    anyone know any good sites?

    ideally want one where the food / toiletries are a bit different to what you would normally see /expect.

    No idea what your girlfriend likes, but Body Shop usually has some great gift baskets with different toiletries. They're a decent brand (I use some of their products myself), and the price is good.

    All the big department stores do them but you can also buy a basket and items yourself? Would you consider creating one? Maybe symbolising something special to you both e.g if you go to Cornwall a lot you could include Cornish products?

    Oh no. Don't get her Lush unless you want to kill both of your senses of smell.

    It's nice to have bits and bobs from everywhere rather than a load of things from just one place .

    I almost faint whenever I enter their stores with friends, because of the horrible perfumes. Cruelty free products and veganism is important to me as well, but I wouldn't for the life of me buy anything from Lush.

    OP. If you or your girlfriend has a keen sense of smell/a sensitive nose, my guess is that neither of you would like Lush' perfumed products.

    Agree!! I think you need to be careful OP you don't want to fall into the distant relative Christmas present zone. There are certain things I would be disappointed to get because I'd never use them, like Lush. I know other people love it but I can't stand the smell.

    I believe The Body Shop and Neal's Yard provide the best body products. Lush is only good for bath bombs, aha.

    Agree with you on the Body Shop part. Never heard of Neal's Yard, but I'll check it out.
    Personally I really like ELDE cosmetics. The price is decent as well.

    Lush do make some lovely gift sets, the shop is overpowering but that's because it's a **** tonne of products in one place. Keeping a few at a time in your bathroom is fine.

    If lush isn't her thing, Burt Bees do some lovely sets too, as do the Body Shop and Soap and Glory.

    If cruelty free is an issue your girlfriend would want you to consider, Lush is definitely cruelty free, I believe Soap and Glory is and The Body Shop and Burts Bees are technically themselves cruelty free, however they are owned by parent companies that aren't. You can check out websites such as Logical Harmony and Leaping Bunny more information on cruelty free brands.

    Lush do some really good gift baskets with all sorts of soaps and bath bombs in them. They are expensive but with it
    You could always add some of your gf's fave sweets or chocolates to the hamper as well.
