It’s been awhile since I’ve made my way down that rose petal strewn aisle all dressed in white. But these bridal inspired spa products have me ‘waxing’ nostalgic for that magical year filled with table seating arrangements, cocktail hour planning and dress fittings in preparation for the big day.

Gift Sets from Philosophy


Only a true philosopher would know the right thing to say in all circumstances and so, Philosophy has done all the work for you with their fabulous new gift sets – perfect for all your bridal needs. Why not show a little ‘Grace’ with a Thank You gift of beautifully scented shampoo, bath and shower gel and pamper those deserving bridesmaids of yours? And what better way to say Congratulations and celebrate the big day than with a little ‘Bubbly’ 3-1 shampoo, bath and shower gel? But do we really need a reason to show those we love that we care? Philosophy has rounded out this trio of brilliance with their chocolatey gift set, Just Because. Each set comes in its own signature gift box and beats a greeting card any day of the week.

Choose from a variety of logos like, ‘The Wife is Right’ (inspired of course, by the game show), ‘Lucky Wife’ (for those Juicy Couture devotees) and ‘My Hubby is my Homeboy’ (for those who love the super soft, vintage style T-shirt).
