Still finishing up your holiday shopping? So am I, much to my dismay. Here are a few more fragrance gift ideas, and if you missed them, see Holiday fragrance gifts 2007, part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4 and part 5.
This Ginger Pomelo set from Caldrea was too cute to pass up, but admittedly, you'd better be darned sure the recipient wouldn't mind receiving cleaning products as a gift. It'd be a perfect housewarming present though! Includes Ginger Pomelo All-Purpose Cleanser, Countertop Cleanser, Powdered Scrub, Dish Soap Liquid, Hand Balm, Lint-Free Cleaning Cloths, and a Ginger Pomelo Bucket, $75 at Caldrea.
Higher on the fun scale, the "Je me souviens" Prestige Case from L'Artisan: "A magic box to bring childhood memories back to life with their sweet scents captured in small china ink bottles: Baby Says, Goodnight Kiss, In the Laundry, Afternoon break, Back to School, Summer Holidays, Up in the Attic, Around the Fireplace. Includes 8 flasks of home fragrance, 8 ceramic rings, olfactory blotters, handkerchief and a small book in a prestige case made of wood." $300 at L'Artisan Parfumeur.
Easier on the budget, from Pacifica, the Mediterranean Fig set, with a Soy candle (40 hour burn time), 4 oz Body Butter and Pacifica Herbal Glycerin Soap, all scented with "an earthy and green combination of palm, cyclamen, sweet fig, moss, and clove set in a base of woody sandalwood". $21.95 at Pacifica.
From Malie Kauai, the Malie Spa gift set, with Body Lather, Sugar Cane Ginger Body Polish, Mango Butter Bun and Body Cream. Available in Pikake, Plumeria, Gardenia or Coconut Vanilla fragrances, $125 at Malie Kauai.
For the dog lover on your list, from Gianni Rose, Le Pug, a (muy cute!) soap scented with a "clean woodsy-floral fragrance", $20 in gift box with ribbon from Gianni Rose.
And the stocking stuffer, Watkins Lavender Hand & Cuticle Salve, "perfect for the gardener or anyone who experiences rough, dry hands". The all-natural formula includes lavender, chamomile, vitamin E and eucalyptus. $6.99 at Watkins.
Robin, that pug soap is so cute! And they have a little Lab puppy… awwwwwww.
All of their animal soaps are ADORABLE, aren't they? Spendy for soaps I guess, but still…
Cleaning house is not my favorite thing to do but that bucket with all the cleaning stuff would cheer me, up for sure.
There are a couple good green household cleaners overhere at a small shop called Biooo.
Was going to check them out but if they smell any extra good… I would have to go and clean first..
Yes, they are. I had to stop looking for fear I was going to start going “Aww” out loud in my cubicle.
The bucket, sadly enough, is exactly what I want. Just because it's cute, LOL — I rarely clean.
