The wind-up musical tin is a thing this holiday season -- have you seen one yet? For instance there's this adorable Crabtree & Evelyn Sensational Six Hand Therapy Musical Tin. It goes like this:

See? Quite the change in holiday packaging for Crabtree & Evelyn, yes? Pretty, with a charming vintage appeal that suits the brand heritage, I think.
The Crabtree & Evelyn Sensational Six Hand Therapy Musical Tin($35 at crabtree-evelyn.caand $35 at crabtree-evelyn.com) contains six mini tubes of Hand Therapy cream. From left to right: Gardeners; Lavender; Rosewater; Pomegranate, Argan & Grapeseed; La Source; and Nantucket Briar.
The Sensational Six is the smaller of two C&E musical gift boxes. The Crabtree & Evelyn Big Top 12 Hand Therapy Musical Tin($60 at crabtree-evelyn.caand $60 at crabtree-evelyn.com) holds -- you guessed it -- 12 mini Hand Therapy creams, and plays the same tune, "Sleigh Ride." The assortment includes: La Source; Rosewater; Lavender; Gardeners; Pomegranate, Argan & Grapeseed; Nantucket Briar; Citron, Honey & Coriander; Summer Hill; Lily; Tarocco Orange, Eucalyptus & Sage; Evelyn Rose; and Verbena & Lavender de Provence. (Most of these I haven't tried; adore Citron, Honey & Coriander. Are you familiar with any of these?)
The Body Shop has a big-top musical tin as well. Called The Joy Bringing Music Box ($40CAN/$45US), it contains a Moringa Eau de Toilette, Shea Body Butter, Shea Lip Butter, Strawberry Body Butter, Strawberry Lip Butter, Honeymania Body Butter and Honeymania Lip Balm.
Must be a trick to ship The Body Shop musical tin because you can't buy it online. Ya gotta go to the store. The Crabtree & Evelyn musical tins, however, appear to be available via the C&E websites in Canada and the US.
So? Whaddya think? Totally cute and festive? Or too much like the noisy toys that drive parents insane?
