Why do Aromatherapy oils make good gifts?
The beauty of Aromatherapy oils is their versatility. Each one has multiple uses from treating ailments to producing fragrances, improving baths and more.
You can give them to help your friend stock up their supply, or gift them to a loved one to show you think they deserve some real self-care.
Home and living gift ideas
Gifting someone something for their home or interior decoration is a safe option as they are likely to not have expiry dates and can show you care and consider their needs.
Oil burners and diffusers are great for someone who likes candles, aromas, and essential oils.
Speciality kitchenware such as infusing teapots or pestle and mortars are ideal for those who like to indulge in a bit of gourmet cooking.
Fitness and wellness gifts like sports accessories or comforting pillows show you care and are perfect for those who you think need to take some time for themselves.
The five gift rule explained
The five gift rule is a tradition where you buy your nearest and dearest:
Something they want
Something they need
Something to wear
Something to read
Something to do
The idea is that there is less to buy, and the recipient will appreciate each gift even more as it has been carefully purchased. It reminds us to focus on each other and appreciate what we have.
What to gift a Vegan?
The vegan diet does limit the health and beauty or food gifts you can give them, but there are still loads of options:
Vegan skincare – check the labels to make sure they don’t have any non-vegan ingredients like Carmine, Lanolin, Lactose, Lactic acid, Gelatine, Beeswax, Whey, Casein.
Vegan food like super dark chocolate and other treats that don’t contain any animal by-products.
Any non-food or beauty product like homewares, fitness items, aromatherapy and wellness, and more.
Are craft items good gifts?
Arts and craft items are tried and tested gifts. They allow people to try new things at no extra cost to their pockets, so they’re ideal for those who have expressed a passing interest in an activity like soap, shampoo or moisturiser making.
