The Muse’s Gift Ideas: Philosophy Shower Gels on the Cheap!

Gift Ideas from the Muse

The Muse doesn’t think she ever gets tired of gifting Philosophy during the Holidays. Philosophy has always been a number one spot for grabbing fantastic, rich looking gifts that won’t break my bank. If you want to break it up even further check out my ways to give (or get) Philosophy on the cheap this year!

This weekend the Muse’s very beautiful aunt was here from Canada visiting. She wanted to do a bit of shopping and honestly the Muse has no trouble with doing that so away we went. She specifically asked if we could head to Marshalls and to my surprise and utter delight they had a a wonderful array of Philosophy Shower Gels which I hauled pretty hard for not only gifts but myself. Each gel was $12.99 each for 8oz or 16oz sizes. I got for myself Fruit Pinch, Cherry Cola, and Spicy Gum Drop. For friends and family I hauled hard on Spicy Gum Drop, The Gingerbread Man, Belgian Waffles, and Spiced Apple Cider. They also had a really sweet gift set for $29.99 which had four, 4oz bottles in different scents some of which I never heard of like peony! It was called the seasonal pack and each bottle represented a season (Winter, Summer, Fall, etc…). Honestly, for the price it was a nice surprise savings.

Philosophy Shower Gels

I highly suggest heading to Marshalls and snagging some if you can. Get some lovely gift bags with beautiful tissue paper, stick a bottle inside each bag with a shower puff, a loofah, and maybe a sponge or pretty wash cloth. I guarantee it’ll be a smashing success with whoever receives it.

If your Marshalls doesn’t have any take advantage of Philosophy’s own sale by purchasing 3 bottles for $33 by entering promo code DELICIOUS at checkout. Choose from over 15 different scents!


Philosophy Shower Gels makes a perfect little gift in this Muse’s opinion especially when it’s cheap.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.
