Scent-sational Stocking Stuffers

While we all lust for those big, beautifully wrapped boxes to have our names on them come the holidays, bigger doesn’t always mean better –hello, diamonds! Plus, you have to stock up on the small stuff in order to jam-pack that stocking (and we don’t mean with oranges and candy canes). So as you get ready to hone in on your holiday gift giving prep, I would like to suggest that you consider these sensually scented stocking stuffers to show your sweet-someone you care.

Perfect for a purse or travel and already beautifully packaged (to cut out cumbersome gift wrapping), Melange’s perfumes blend essential oils with fragrance for a long wearing scent that can be worn either alone or layered for a more personalized touch. Plus, the solid perfumes come in 28 different scents while the roll-ons are available in 14 notes meaning your (not-so-) secret-Santa will be sure to find one she fancies.

If a gift certificate for a massage at a local spa is beyond your stocking-stuffing price-range, give instead a bottle of organic massage oil from Ilha. Available in 5 scents to satisfy the spa-lover in your life, these anti-oxidant rich oils are designed to leave the skin silky and moisturized and the body restored.

With an 8.5 ounce bottle of each the Replenishing Body Wash and the Replenishing Body Cream, packing her stocking with this set is like giving her an at home spa – minus the hefty price tag on an at-home Jacuzzi and live-in masseuse. (Note: gift certificates for a breakfast in bed or a foot rub are also recommended additions.)

a twenty-something West Villager with her Masters from Columbia. She has an unhealthy obsession with ripped jeans (which she wears even when conventionally inappropriate), wishes Christmas decorations stayed up year-round (even though she is Jewish), and is in desperate pursuit of thick Brook-Shields-like eyebrows (which she was genetically denied). She loves anything with horses, is addicted to pilates, and could wander around Sephora for hours.
