How’s your holiday shopping going? I haven’t started mine either. But these sets smell so festive, they’ve inspired me to get the ball rolling.
Slatkin & Co. The Perfect Christmas Candles ($5 to $19.50) You don’t have to put up a tree or bake a pie. These four candles do all the work: Spice is a blend of cinnamon and vanilla; Winter, a mix of pine and bay leaf; Tree has notes of fir and vanilla; and Frosted Cranberry smells like cranberry, peach, and berries. Easy.
Marc Jacobs Scent Decanter ($65) is the perfect home fragrance, and an even better hostess gift. The chunky Waterford glass bottle is simple and gorgeous, and the delicate scent (a mix of tropical rain accord, passion flower, and beech amber) is relaxing.
Origins Blue Skies Ahead ($30) is a trio of grapefruit-scented bath and body treats–a body wash, scrub and cream. All three smell fresh and aren’t too feminine, so your dad, brother, or boyfriend will feel pampered, but not prissy.
C.O. Bigelow Ginger Mentha Collection ($95) includes a body wash, body scrub, body cream, lip shine, and bath fizz in a delicious, warming ginger scent. What makes it even more gift-worthy is the leather train case they come in.
Korres Fig Gift Set Pouch ($33) has shower gel, exfoliator, and thick body butter, made with the sweet and earthy smell of the fresh fruit. Yum.
