The L’OCCITANE Gift Set Workshop

They are pretty gifts that we are thrilled to discover under the Christmas tree. In addiction of being beautiful and generously filled, L'OCCITANE gift sets contribute to the occupational integration of handicapped people.

They are starting to get ready for Christmas at L’Occitane, and like every year, thousands of gift sets will be prepared in our factory and in boutiques around the world. Filled with products inspired by Provence, wrapped in deliciously perfumed tissue paper, these little boxes are a delight for all when the much-anticipated time comes to unwrap gifts on Christmas morning.

But did you know that these Christmas gift sets are also an expression of L’Occitane’s engagement in favor of the employment of disabled people? Indeed, the company cares about contributing to occupational integration for all. Since 2012, L’OCCITANE has welcomed in its production site a group of disabled workers from a disability employment service program (the ESAT), mainly for the preparation of Christmas gift sets. L’OCCITANE also calls on ESAT offices to help produce 10,000 gift boxes which are sold at Christmas.

When you make your purchases in L’OCCITANE boutiques you can choose these gift boxes pre-filed with a selection of products, but it is also possible to fill them according to your own taste. Whatever the case, when you’re shopping, remember that your L'OCCITANE gift sets contribute to the occupational integration of disabled people.
