Every item in our holiday assortment this season has been made with ingredients that are never naughty and always nice; free of artificial fragrances, parabens, synthetics or phthalates, our clean and plant-based products will have them walking in a wellness wonderland. Read on for our top picks for holiday gift ideas.
Holiday gift ideas to help deck the halls
We’re spending more time in our homes than we ever have, which is why we feel it more important than ever that we create warmth, coziness and that festive feeling. While you might not be the tinsel and string lights type, you can certainly create an atmosphere at home that feels inviting and personalized, even if you’re not entertaining guests this year.
Why diffusers this holiday season? Diffusing is a safe and effective way to not only refresh the air in your home, helping to remove airborne irritants like dust and dander, but to customize the scent and feel in your space. You are able to create the atmosphere you desire when it comes to scent, by adding oils you enjoy the smell of in quantities that make sense for you; some of us like the aroma a little stronger and some of us enjoy it as a subtle background note. We’ve curated a selection of products for the home, from diffusers to air sprays, all designed to help enhance and complement the experience of being at home.
Aroma Rise Speckled White: we are over the moon about this brand new diffuser design, limited to the holiday season this year. The cover is made from a decorative speckled white polyresin, which fits nicely into any color scheme or decor motif. With a run time of between 3-6 hours depending on a continuous or intermittent setting (30 seconds on, 30 seconds off), this diffuser is perfect for a coffee table centerpiece while you’re catching up with friends and family or a beautiful addition to your bedside table to help you relax in the evening.
Aroma Nouveau: if a darker color palette and sleek design is more your style, this limited edition diffuser might just do the trick. It’s a shorter, cylindrical design which helps it tuck nicely into a bookshelf or on an end table in your living room. The cover is made from durable ceramic in midnight black, and offers run times between 7-14 hours based on a continuous or intermittent setting.
Good Cheer: what would a diffuser be without a versatile set of diffuser blends to go with it? This is one of our most popular holiday gift ideas each year because each of the blends are limited edition holiday scents that help evoke the feelings of the season. Favorites that only return each year at holiday include Deep Forest, a spicy-woodsy blend, Tree Scents, an evergreen-tree-in-a-bottle, Peppermint Twist, a natural smelling candy cane, All The Feels, like a warm hug from an old friend and Festive Friday, an uplifting and cheery holiday blend.
Thankful Trio: whether you’re gifting this kit to someone else or purchasing for yourself, you can ensure you’re taking home hygiene to the next level. Thankful is a brand new scent for us at Holiday this year, blended with fresh orange, sweet vanilla and spicy cinnamon. Seeing this gift set, containing a foaming hand soap, nourishing hand and body lotion as well as a freshening air spray, sitting on your bathroom counter will make you look forward to your daily cleansing routines.
Holiday gift ideas for those who love the freshness of mint
There’s just something about the cool, refreshing tingle of mint that makes it really feel like the holidays. Each holiday, we bring back a community favorite scent called Peppermint Twist, which is blended with cooling and soothing peppermint and spearmint, citrusy-fresh orange and sweet, warming benzoin. We’re sharing below all of the ways you can enjoy Peppermint Twist this year.
Peppermint Twist Duo: this is a set of foaming hand soap and hand and body lotion, both formulated to help elevate your hand and body hygiene. This year, we’re offering this duo in a matte white that is both neutral and beautiful, which works with all home styles and design aesthetics.
Peppermint Twist diffuser blend: our very favorite scent for the home, Peppermint Twist helps to bring the scent of a natural candy cane to your space. Picture the aroma of a creamy, sweet mint; now think of how awesome it will be to welcome that scent into your home each day during the holiday season.
Peppermint Twist room spray: this crisp and refreshing air spray is perfect for any room in your home. When you want to freshen the air fast, spritz generously and invite in the sweet and revitalizing notes of peppermint and orange. Our favorite place to use it? Right by the front door, so when you walk in the house you’re enveloped with the smells of the season.
Holiday gift ideas for those who love the sweet & spice of the holidays
Another comforting scent of the holiday season is the warmth and sweet spice of notes like cinnamon and clove that make us think of warm cider or cuddling up by the fireplace. We’re sharing three of our favorite diffuser blends that will make you want to reach for your favorite cozy sweater and slippers.
Sugar Plum Fairy: returning this year and almost needing no introduction is a true community favorite called Sugar Plum Fairy. Formulated with sweet fennel, earthy patchouli and spicy cinnamon, this is a blend you’ll want on hand to remind you of warm cookies straight from the oven on holiday morning.
Reunion: making its debut this year is a brand new limited edition blend called Reunion, formulated with citrus and spice and everything nice. Fresh tangerine meets floral-sweet balsam peru and warming cardamom for a blend that will evoke the nostalgic feeling of the holiday season with friends and family.
All The Feels: another returning favorite of our community for three years running is a comforting blend called All The Feels. Formulated with zesty orange, citrusy yuzu and tangy clove, this blend will remind you of sharing hugs and laughs with loved ones.
Holiday gift ideas for those who love the great outdoors
The last of our holiday gift ideas for this article will transport you directly to the fresh and lofty air of the mountain tops in the great outdoors. Yes, we’re talking about the freshness of the forest, the openness of the outside, our favorite scents that come to us from the trees. Read on for our top picks for those who love the scents that come to us from nature.
Deep Forest diffuser blend: we couldn’t be more excited to be offering such a thoughtful and unique blend for holiday this year. We’ve worked with our friends at the Great Bear Rainforest Essential Oils company to bring you three of the essential oils that are included in our blend this year. Douglas Fir, Western Hemlock and Red Cedar have all been sourced from regions in northern British Columbia, where GBREO calls home. A part of the company’s unique story is as follows: “Great Bear Rainforest™ Essential Oils is a social enterprise supported by the Coastal First Nations Great Bear Initiative — a non-profit society and alliance of eight First Nations on British Columbia’s North and Central Coast and Haida Gwaii.” We are honored to have had the opportunity to blend these fresh essential oils alongside orange and clove for a unique blend only available at holiday.
Tree Scents air spray: speaking of Tree Scents, here’s a returning favorite we know and love each holiday season. The Tree Scents aroma was formulated to mirror the scent of a fresh, live evergreen tree for those of us unable to have a live indoor tree during the holidays. Blended with pine needle, cypress and cedarwood, you can spritz this mist in the air anytime you’re looking for that fresh outdoor feeling.
Fresh Alpine diffuser blend: this blend is a returning classic you may not recognize from its name change. Previously called Stanley Park, this is an opening and clearing blend of fresh tree scents like cypress, eucalyptus and sweet birch. When you want to feel like you’ve stepped out into the crunchy snow surrounded by towering trees, reach for Fresh Alpine this holiday season.
