Beyond Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh: Choose These Wise Gifts for Holiday Giving
The leaves have fallen, the scent of spice is in the air, and, around us, the colors are changing from oranges and browns to silvers and golds; reds and greens. Christmas is coming: that magical time of year when families and friends come together and the spirit of giving is ever present.
Speaking of presents, are you wondering what you’ll put under the tree for the special people in your life? At Lavender Life, we’re here to make the shopping part of the season a little simpler and a little softer, with ideas for everyone on your list.
Wrap Moms in Comfort and Joy
What mother doesn’t need a healthy dose of self-care? Whether she’s playing the role of family Uber driver, juggling work and home life, offering advice over the phone, or making a home-cooked meal, Mom does it all and she does it with a generous heart. Give back for all she’s done and all she’ll do with gifts that will help her relax and recharge.
The Lavender Lovers Ultimate Package has all the essentials, and is neatly boxed for a beautiful presentation—a truly distinctive gift with items she’ll use every day. If she likes to leave the day’s worries in the tub, Dead Sea Salt Bath Soaks, available in four fragrances, will whisk them away. And, Refining and Exfoliating Face Masks purify and cleanse, bringing a healthy glow to her loving face.
Pamper Parents and Parents to Be
Welcoming a little one, caring for a newborn, or chasing a toddler, parents have their hands full. Bring some calm into their lives with lavender-infused bath and body products and made-for-baby textiles.
Shower them with the bare necessities from the Bud Box Bath Collection, filled with bath items that are formulated for babies’ delicate skin and contain sleep-inducing lavender to help carry them to dreamland. They’ll drool over Reversible Teether Bibs made of 100% GOTS Certified Organic Cotton and food-grade silicone, and hug you for giving Swaddle Buds Stretchy Wraps made from breathable bamboo.
If you want to give a gift that doubles the love, then Xander Bunnies are a must. Not only are they cute, soft, and fluffy, they have a removable heating pack inside that gently releases a soothing, lavender fragrance when warmed. Xander Bunnies are perfect for tucking in a crib or toting on an adventure. What’s better: for every bunny purchased, Lavender Life gives one free to a child in foster care.

Add a Dash of Flavor and Flair to Their Kitchen
Have a foodie on your list? Give delightfully different ingredients to experiment with. The Culinary Lavender Gift Trio combines three favorites—extract, dried buds, and infused honey—that work together or on their own to cook up exciting kitchen creations, from sweet to savory.
The Gummy Kit and Kaboodle is gastronomical fun for adults and kids alike—and the result is so much more satisfying and nutritious than its packaged, processed counterparts. For barbecue enthusiasts, Dried Lavender Stem Bundles are a unique alternative to wood chips for adding smoked flavor to grilled foods.
Spoil Grandparents Silly
What do you get for those who have everything they need? It’s a common challenge when shopping for elderly friends and family members. Try treating them to indulgences they might not buy for themselves, but will soon find they can’t live without.
With the Lavender Comfort Neck Wrap and Lavender Eye Pillow, heat- and aromatherapy work together to relieve stiff, sore muscles and welcome a restful night’s sleep. For an all-day refresher that fills the home with a scent reminiscent of bygone years, give an elegant essential oil Diffuser or Lavender Fog air and pillow spray.
Give the Gift of a Clean Label
We’re all paying more attention to labels today, and what we’re finding is that not all health, beauty, and household products are created equal. When you shop with Lavender Life, you have peace of mind knowing every item is made with care and filled with high-quality, natural ingredients—most right from Vic and Vickie’s own farm and kitchen, and many USDA Certified Organic.
Though any of Lavender Life’s products will appeal to the health conscious people on your list, these are a few favorites:
The Hemp Soap Gift Set features four different essential oil and lavender blends for all skin types—and all boast the many benefits of hemp. For the sweet tooth who’s looking for a sugar alternative, it doesn’t get better than Raw Lavender Honey for both flavor and nutritional qualities. Aromatherapy lovers will swoon over the Lavender Essential Oil Roll-on and Dropper, that, unlike what you’ll find in some stores, is pure, undiluted, and USDA Certified Organic. And, if you really want to light up their faces, 100% all-natural, vegan clarifying and hydrating Lavender Green Tea Geranium Toner is just the find.
