Wise Men Shop at LUSH

Gifts >> Tips and Tricks

Modern day wise men! Looking for gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh this Christmas? You can find them all at LUSH. My name’s Anton and I work at our Robson Street shop in Vancouver, and things are starting to buzz with the holidays coming up so quickly. Our shop does get to be a bustling one this time of year, but don’t let the crowd scare you. Trust us, it’s a party in here. Come on in!

Guys, We’re Here to Help

When you walk into our (or any) LUSH store, you’re likely to be greeted with a big, smiley hello. Don’t be intimidated by our zeal! We’re just stoked about helping you find whatever it is that brought you in: whether you’re restocking your bathroom with your favourite products or checking things out for the first time, we’re happy to show you around and tell you about what we’ve got.

Looking for Things to Put Under the Tree?

Finding the perfect gifts for your friends and family can be a tricky exercise, so let us do the heavy lifting for you. (I mean that metaphorically, unless you do end up going for our LUSH Legends gift, which I’ve affectionately nicknamed “Big Red”. You’ll see why when you drop by.) We’ll need to know a bit about the people in your life to make good recommendations for them, so if our questions start getting personal, we’re not being creepy. Knowing that your sister plays basketball, for example, lets us tailor our suggestions to include goodies that are great on sore muscles. We have got a fantastic spread of wrapped and Christmas-ready gifts to choose from, so people who hate wrapping gifts can rejoice! We do also have our whole range of year-round gifts for you to choose from. Can’t find a gift that suits you? No worries! We can create custom bundles of products wrapped up in our furoshiki Knot-Wrap scarves, inspired by the Japanese tradition of using fabric as a wrapping material.

 Stop to Smell the Perfume

Perfumes make for beautiful, intimate gifts, and we've got plenty to choose from. Pull up a stool, have a seat, and let us take you on an olfactory tour of our fine Gorilla Perfumes. You might even sniff a couple that you’ll want to wear! (I suggest checking out Dear John, The Smell of Weather Turning, and Breath of God for yourself and the other men in your life.)

Treat Yourself

Between the cold and the crowds, shopping this time of year can really take it out of you. If you need a pick-me-up before leaving our store, ask your friendly neighbourhood LUSH employee for a free arm treatment or facial. This way you can try some of our products out and have some much needed ‘me’ time all at once. You deserve it! (Also, guys, if you’ve never had a facial before, now’s the time. They are, in a word, life-changing.)

If You Really Can’t Decide

I know, I know, there’s a lot to choose from at LUSH. Don’t be daunted by the amount of product in here, though! During your time in the store, you’re sure to find something that you really enjoy. If all else fails, choose to gift things that you love. Gifts are, in a way, extensions of yourself that you’re giving to others, so they might as well be things that you’re excited by.

Alright then, wise men. That’s my best shopping advice for you. Do pay us a visit, we’d love to have you in our shop! See you soon...
