When I was a girl my Grandmother often gifted me the fancy toiletries she’d acquired on her travels. Fancy miniature soaps from abroad, wrapped in neatly pleated tissue; tiny little bottles of exotically scented shampoos; even adorable little repair kits with neatly wound coils of thread in a dozen different colours. For most of my childhood I was never in want of a doll-sized bar of soap (though I hardly traveled enough to necessitate my stash of portable toiletries).

I adore the smells of the holidays—Christmas trees, holiday baking, cocoa, and woodsmoke. I formulated these scent blends around my favourite winter memories, from picking out a Christmas tree to spending the entire weekend in the kitchen making pies and cookies. I’m loving them in my Saje Aroma Cloud ultrasonic diffuser these days.

These adorable little body truffles make fantastic gifts, though I would definitely advise informing recipients of their non-edible nature sooner rather than later. A core of creamy peppermint-spiked shea butter is encased in silky smooth cocoa butter, making for a rather lovely treat for the skin.

This thick and luxurious body lotion makes a lovely Christmas gift. It leaves the skin soft and slightly peppermint scented, and if you’re looking for a bit of an extra festive hint, you can add a touch of mica for some holiday shimmer.
