1. Sundae Whipped Shower Foam

RRP: £12.99

Famously, this isn't always the cheeriest time of year. So we'll take our little joy-sparking moments wherever we can get 'em – and currently, that's in the shower with these.

This fun new body wash range looks great, like cans of whippy cream, and comes in nine uplifting fragrances, perfect for layering with your best fruity perfume. For a not-exorbitant price they have a pleasingly generous, fat and foamy lather and contain antioxidant-rich Kakadu plum, so can brighten you up physically as well as spiritually. Happy days!

2. Diptyque Do Son Limited Edition Eau de Toilette

RRP: £57 for 30ml

How do you improve on perfection? If you're Diptyque and looking to knock the (already extremely lovely) perfume Do Son up a notch or two, you reimagine the bottle and box design with splashy blue illustrations.

The floral fragrance, inspired by Vietnam's coastline, is just as we know and love it – thank god because that tuberose, jasmine and sea-breezy scent should not be tampered with. But it is looking particularly gorgeous for the time being, and this sweet 30ml bottle should be friendlier to post-festive season budgets.

3. Biossance Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil 

RRP: £55

If your face found its way onto a Guess Who board today, what descriptor might a player use to try and rule you out? Don't answer that. It's okay, we're all a bit stuffed and spent and the weather isn't helping. Better times are ahead.

How? With this, pure nourishment for dehydrated skin. Rich in texture and packed with radiance-boosting vitamins and oils. Smother it on day and night – you'll immediately feel better and almost instantly look it. Plus, as a sweetener, this limited-edition bottle celebrates Lunar New Year with a lucky red rabbit design.

The benefits of swimming are well known and there's no better time to start swimming again than the start of a New Year - whether that's braving wild swimming in the UK or taking a dip in an amazing swimming pool abroad while getting a little winter sun. 

We love this supportive style from M&S which has been designed with movement in mine as part of their new Goodmove collection.

4. Ish Spirits Sparkling White Wine

RRP: £11.99

'Tis the season for buying alternatives to alcohol as many of us are taking on Dry (or Damp) January in 2023. Ish Spirits are a Danish company, stocked at The Wise Bartender, offering our favorite tipples completely alcohol-free.

The white sparkling wine, for instance, is based on a de-alcoholised blend of Pinot Blanc and Silvaner grapes and has notes of citrus, green apple, pear, and peach. Rosé versions are also available, along with some great non-alcoholic cocktails.
