If you are like me and have Christmas exchanges after December 25th, then there’s still lots of time (ish) to pick up some last minute presents. Here is a smorgasbord of products with varying budgets if you are still looking for a gift for your hosts, managers, families, siblings etc!
Everyone loves adding essential oils in their diffuser these days (as you can tell from my last post,) and I got a bunch for other people as gifts. Another brand that sells great oils is Thursday Plantation. You can find the Wellness Pack* ($31.99 CAD) online at Abundance Naturally It contains 3 oils: Lavender Oil (25mL,) Tea Tree(25mL,) and Peppermint (25mL.) Use them one at a time or combine all three together! I use Tea Tree Oil on my face as well for breakouts, and also add a few drops in a spritz to spray my stinky shoes.
We all love some sparkle during the holidays, and you can stuff that in a stocking stuffer with 7th Heaven Renew You Masks* (found online at Farley and Co.) I will definitely give this a go for some relaxation during the holidays and report back!
Exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart is the I Love Signature Selection Box Scented Miniature Body Wash Collection*. So far I have opened each bottle to sniff each scent and they smell light and true to its name; the Elderflower Fizz and English Rose so far is my favourite (the floral scents are done really well!) This is a great gift for so many and easy to pack while travelling as well!
L’Occitane has perfect packaging for gifts of every size. We got my mom one of their lovely gift boxes that has the almond shower oil, and I purchased a few of these Delicious Almond Ornaments ($14 CAD) as last minute gifts for Christmas parties. These are adorable and this one has the mini almond shower oil.
Saje Wellness…one of my favourite brands that started its roots in Vancouver. Their packaging is gorgeous and I keep getting suckered into those “Spend $30 in store/online, get this item for another $30.” I picked up the Bedtime Ritual Relaxing Bath Kit for $30 CAD after spending $30 on other gifts as it is so nice for anyone as a present. This kit contains Tranquility Bath Salts (120 g), Sleep Well Body Butter (50 ml), Silence Candle (100 g) and Sleep Well Remedy (6 ml).
Regular price for this is $60 and I was sold really well on it!.
For someone who loves makeup, the Laura Mercier Caviar Du Jour Mini Caviar Stick Collection* ($40 CAD) contains four mini of the famous eyeshadow sticks. The colours are: Magnetic Pink, Intense Moonlight, Metallic Taupe, and Intense Amethyst. These are great to throw into your purse as I find the application to be fairly effortless. They also don’t take up too much space compared to a palette.
Lastly, the Laura Mercier Body Butter Duet* ($74 CAD) set contains two limited-edition collection scents: Ambre Vanille Body Butter and Almond Coconut Milk Body Butter. I have the mini size ones from last year; they are fantastic as I brought them with me while travelling. The formula feels luxurious and rich, the scent is just like their name and they are immensely hydrating. The body butters contain Shea butter , illipe butter, and Grape seed oil. 100% my mom will take this off my hands!
You can find Laura Mercier products at Sephora online and instore.
Good luck to you whoever is doing their Christmas shopping this week! I hope you have found a few good ideas from here. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
