Looking for a holiday gift for your office Secret Santa, your boyfriend’s mom or the hostess of the annual Christmas Eve party? Try something that will appeal to your recipient’s sense of smell for a gift that keeps giving long after the holiday season.
More Than Just a Candle
You could go to Yankee Candle and pick out a holiday scent, or you could make your dollars go a little further with a candle from Bright Endeavors. These premium soy candles are handmade by young, impoverished mothers in Chicago, as they learn valuable job skills to benefit themselves and their families. The candles are available in four sizes and come in a variety of scents.
The Gift of Baking
If you know your recipient is a maestro in the kitchen, these high-end extracts are sure to please, as well as fill the home with the mouthwatering scent of baking. Nielsen-Massey Vanillas’ Holiday Trio bundle features a Madagascar Bourbon pure vanilla extract, pure almond extract and pure peppermint extract. The gift set is available in two different sizes.
A Fresh Cup
There’s nothing quite like the smell of a delicious cup of coffee first thing in the morning. When you gift an organic coffee blend from One Cup Coffee Co., you support fair trade coffee manufacturing in Asia, South America and Africa. This gift set comes with a handcrafted coffee scoop created by artisans in India.
Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
