A Holiday Gift Guide, With Purpose
That special feeling when someone we love opens a personalized gift that makes them feel as understood & appreciated as they deserve.
But that’s a tall order to achieve every year and waiting to feel inspired sometimes leads to the dreaded Holiday panic that we all hope to avoid. Switching up your gifting approach with this simple, out-of-the-box guide might keep you out of the last-minute frenzy and please even the pickiest of recipients.
Assembling gift boxes for the special people in our lives is no novel notion. But, instead of configuring box content based on trinkets they might like, we recommend shopping by purpose.
Decide what this person likes to do with their spare time, and put together a box of goods that supports that purpose.
Need a little inspo nudge?
Here are some purpose-first ideas from which you can pick and choose the best items for your favorite people:
Cozy evenings by the fire with a warm beverage and seasonal scent surrounding you: your wine-loving friends and family will be delighted. Featuring our Orange Clove Cinnamon candle for ruminating in the spiced aroma of mulled wine, include your favorite mulled wine recipe, thoughtfully-sourced mugs, and dried fruit for this festive favor.
When decorating is not your thing, how nice is it to have someone in your life to do it for you? Show them your gratitude with a gift box that showcases our stunning Holiday Cone Candles, along with decorative accents and a stylish table runner. We recommend sourcing small vendors for handmade items that provide that unique touch to their space.
For the folks who use cooking as a calming exercise, help inspire more culinary creations with kitchen accouterments. Our Lemongrass Cassia candle is the perfect addition, emitting a relaxing scent that pairs well with food. With gourmet cooking essentials and a Holiday cookbook, maybe you can talk them into making you something special with their new gifts!
The member of your tribe who cares about the future of our Planet has earned a thoughtfully-curated gift box. Show them you support their cause with a donation receipt to their favorite earth-friendly organization. Include zero-waste products like bar shampoo and bamboo straws. Whereas all of our candles are made with eco-conscious materials, we think the Desert Juniper candle would make a perfect addition to these down-to-earth goods.
For the person who never skips a self-care sesh (or maybe someone who needs to skip them less!), this is the kit that keeps on giving. Our flagship Lavender candle included in this gift box will be sure to help ease stress with its delightfully floral aroma. Add a cozy bathrobe and a luxurious spa set so they can meet their self-care needs this Holiday season.
Friends and family who prefer the fresh air on a brisk hike…help them bring the outdoors in! The scent of our Noble Fir candle evokes the feeling of a walk through the evergreens. Complete the box with rugged outdoor gear and a hiking guide for winter adventures.
Friends and family who bring baked goods to every event…it’s time for them to be treated. Elicit the delight of seasonal cookies baking in the oven by including our Vanilla Nutmeg Cardamom candle. Set them up for future baking success with some high-quality baking tools and a collection of gourmet baking ingredients for holiday treats.
With these gifting ideas, you can make sure that the people in your life are made to feel as special and unique as they are.
