The turkey leftovers are in the fridge, we’ve sent the family on their way home, and our bellies and hearts are full – that means it’s time to start panicking about Christmas presents! Only kidding (kind of), but it is time to start thinking about all the wonderful people in our lives and what we could possibly gift them. I have a few go-to favorite items that have proven to be favorites of my loved ones throughout the years. These are gifts are long lasting goodies that bring warmth to their homes long past the winter season!
The Gift of Scent. Candles are one of my all-time favorite items to both receive and give at any time of the year. I love being able to wrap myself in gorgeous aromas that enhance my mood and my space! To make present giving easier this year we have paired some of our favorite seasonal scents into an easy to gift bundle. Home, Adorn, and Tidings are a mix of fresh, spicy and sweet so there is a scent for all candle lovers.
The Gift of Comfort. Can one ever have enough throw blankets? I sure don’t think so! I stack them up on my hearth, display them on my sofa and cuddle up in them with my morning tea. My current favorite is a classic white and black houndstooth print that goes with anything and everything. We’ve paired it with a Tidings candle in one of this season’s gift bundles – talk about cozy!
The Gift of Knowledge. Ok so maybe not knowledge, but the gift of a well-designed and informative book! Coffee table books are a wonderful décor piece and conversation starter. I use them on my kitchen counters, bar carts, and of course, coffee tables to bring color and height to my vignettes. Whatever your loved one is interested in, there is bound to be a beautiful book they would love to read and display. We have three gift bundles that include books this year – one for the wine lover, one for the charcuterie aficionado, and one for the mixologist! And of course, we have plenty of books in the shop on everything from good eats to high fashion perfect for anyone on your list.
The Gift of Luxury. A little spa moment in the middle of a busy day doesn’t go unnoticed! I love treating myself and others to a high-end soap and lotion pairing during the holidays. Our Merry Carols aroma envelopes you in the beautiful and crisp scent of sweet winter-blooming magnolia flowers and the sharp zest of citrus, Turkish rose, Indonesian ginger and fresh pine for a holiday scent that is fresh and dreamy. Made with premium-quality essential oils developed exclusively for Nell Hill’s, the soaps and lotion come on a tray perfect for gift-giving.
We have so much left to look forward to this holiday season that I can hardly contain my excitement! With more holiday looks and a few tips and tricks to creating the perfect tree heading your way, stick with us as we walk through the end of the year together. Until next time – happy decorating!
