For all you last minute shoppers, LUSH has some great gifts that will make dad feel super special this Father’s Day. Check out below for a few ideas that are sure to put a smile on his face:

Can’t afford a lawn mower for him to shave the landscape? Check out the Shave the Planet Gift ($29.95) so dad can at least mansacape his beard with some “green” products.

No frills dad? Try the Happy Hippy Shower Gel ($9.95 100ml) that can be used as a shower gel and/or shampoo.

For the Dad on the go. LUSH Solid Shampoos ($9.95) come in a variety of fragrances and are solid, so dad can throw one into his gym bag or carry-on luggage. It’s leak-proof and will last for up to 70 washes.

A FLEET of LUSH’S Sexy Products

Don’t get “Carried” away, NYC is in full flirt mode this week! From the premiere of SATC2 to the much anticipated Fleet Week, city girls are single and ready to mingle. If you don’t have a $4 million wardrobe budget, tickets to Abu Dhabi or a permanent marine gig, check out these LUSHious products to snag you Mr. Right:

Anchor in your perfect ‘Matey’ with Ocean Salt. This best-selling sea salt scrub gives your skin a fresh glow like you’ve just spent a week on the ocean with a dreamy sailor. Brightening and cleansing grapefruit infusion and lime oil are balanced with nutritious and moisturizing fresh avocado. Pull a Samantha circa fourth season SATC and show the US Navy how beautiful NYC (girls) really is.

Lure your very own Mr. Big with Big Shampoo. You’ll stand out in a crowd at Buddakan with voluminous hair! Toothed wrack seaweed infusion nourishes hair while fresh lime and lemon juice adds loads of luster. Added bonus, the aroma smells like a citrus margarita!

July 6th might be National Kissing Day in the UK, but we can celebrate that all year round here in the States. Prep lips to pucker up with the new Lip Scrubs in three lip smacking flavors: Bubblegum, Mint Julips and Sweet Lips. These delicious scrubs are made with castor sugar and organic jojoba oil to soften and smooth even the most parched pouts.

Get naked for $20! Intrigued?

Expose yourself to new and easy ways to live a greener lifestyle for the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. It’s simple, just start by stripping…….your life of packaging with LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics. Over 70% of LUSH products are “naked” (that’s lingo for unpackaged), solid and preservative-free, which is better for you and the environment. We saved more than 21 tons of plastic in 2009!

To celebrate Earth Day, LUSH will be launching a Naked Kit ($20). True to its title, this limited edition kit will house six of LUSH’s most popular solid, unpackaged and preservative-free offerings in a biodegradable box. Take a sneak peek at what’s inside…

•Mini Squeaky Green Shampoo Bar – this shampoo, which lasts 60 washes, will revitalize and stimulate the scalp. Consider this: if the entire population of North America used a solid shampoo bar (equivalent to three 8 oz. bottles), then it would save 122 million plastic bottles from being produced and ending up in the landfill.

•Mini Buffy Body Butter – LUSH’s Body Butters are one-of-a-kind. Packed with natural butters to moisturize, and sand to exfoliate, this bar will save time, money, and the planet.

•Mini Therapy Massage Bar – soothe your body and your conscience with this 100% certified organic massage bar, a true LUSH invention made with natural oils and absolutely no preservatives.

•Sexy Peel Soap – with uplifting lemon and lime, this soap (along with all of LUSH soaps) is made with a palm-free base. A first of its kind, this revolutionary soap base has saved 133,000 pounds of palm oil from being produced, helping to save rainforests, indigenous people and orangutans in Southeast Asia.

•Choice of Toner Tab – steam your face with these LUSH inventions. Choose from: T-Tree (oily skin), Vitamin C (aging skin), Vitamin E (all skin types), and Q10 (skin soothing).

•Cleanser: Fresh Farmacy or Coalface – LUSH uses the finest ingredients when creating our solid face cleansers. Choose from: Fresh Farmacy (for troublesome skin) or Coalface (for oily skin).

To further increase LUSH’s eco-friendly initiatives, we are eliminating in-store gift wrap service and introducing Knot Wrap ($6.95). This Furoshiki-inspired technique uses scarves (made from recyclable materials or organic fabrics) to wrap your products in a way that is kinder to the Earth.

The Naked Kit might be limited edition (launching April 5th), but our solid goodies and bottled products (which are made from 100% post-consumer recycled packaging) are available all year round. And don’t forget to Knot Wrap them – the Earth will thank you
