Featuring a carefully selected range of 25 vegan products to bring joy in the lead up to the big day, this year’s Lush Advent Calendar is packaged in a limited edition box and features more retro and exclusive products than ever before and not available to purchase anywhere else.

The box has been designed by Andre Williams from Intoart,  a London based studio for people with learning disabilities. Andre’s Advent Calendar design also features the word ‘Celebrate’ in 23 different languages including English.

“This box is a big party. It’s dancing feet, a shimmy shake, a boogie woogie and a celebration. It’s the good time for everyone” 

– Andre Williams, Intoart

The design is in my buds style which keen eyes will recognise from previous gifts and Knot Wraps. I’ve added a few new characters into the design that have also become products inside your gift, look out for Lump of Coal, Groovy Fairy, and Penguin.”

about lush gifts

When you buy a Lush gift, you’re having a positive impact on the world – you’re saying no to excess single-use plastic; you’re supporting communities and artisans who’ve made the Knot Wraps, ribbons, and natural papers; you’re buying products with beautiful ingredients that regenerate social and eco-systems. 

Large or small, each Lush gift is carefully thought out and crafted, from the handmade treats nestled inside, to the final tie of the ribbon. It’s Lush’s hope that by paying so much attention to every aspect from box to bath, the lucky recipient has extra incentive to keep the boxes, reuse the wrapping paper or upcycle the ribbons.

Above all, Lush are passionate about art and design, this includes the people who create it. We understand how important it is to have a breadth of design from a variety of voices and from as many backgrounds as possible.
