Moreover, leading the way in diversity and equity within the design industry, LUSH is passionate about art and design, and the people who create it. Understanding the importance of having a breadth of design from a variety of voices and as many backgrounds as possible, LUSH has collaborated with 19 designers and 6 artist groups this year to offer an interstellar collection of offerings in celebration of their many different backgrounds.
Some of this year’s range have been designed by Georgina Mullins from LUSH in York, and they are currently being sold globally in LUSH shops and online. Georgina designed two gifts from this year’s range: the Jingle All The Way gift and the Season’s Greetings gift. Georgina’s beautiful designs are the result of Lush’s Christmas 2023 Open Call, a chance for LUSH staff to share fresh ideas and celebrate artists from many different backgrounds.
Jingle All The Way (AED 125) Georgina was inspired by the disco era when designing the Jingle All The Way gift. This fun gift has full-on Christmas party vibes, so pull on your flared trousers and platform boots, and blast the good tunes to party the night away with Santa and his pals.
Season’s Greeting (AED 325) Another design of Georgina’s, Season’s Greetings gift, is a luxurious shower and body gift inspired by Christmas traditions, full of fruity ingredients we associate with the holiday season to brighten and nourish the skin.

ARTHOUSE Unlimited is a charity that represents a collective of artists with complex neuro-diverse and physical support needs. Suzie, LUSH’s Gifts Creative and Category Lead, and the creative team often feel incredibly inspired meeting the artists when visiting the studio and shop in Godalming, Surrey, as the passion and humour that comes through their work is infectious.
