Maria's Gift Guide

TO INDULGE...

I think essential oils make lovely and unique gifts, promoting peace and wellbeing. I'm partial to lavender and rose oils, but there are so many varietals to choose from. This website lists the differing properties associated with various oils, so you can find that perfect scent and mood.

ESSENTIAL OILS, prices vary

Bulgarian Rose Distillery

 


TO SAVOR... 

Turn your gift of essential oils into an experience the whole room can enjoy with an aromatherapy burner. I particularly like the clean, modern lines of the "Cino"—it's like a sculpture all its own.

CINO AROMATHERAPY BURNER, $38

Yliving

 

 

TO SPARKLE...

Who doesn't love receiving a bauble with a little bling? Modern jewelry with natural stones, mixed metals, and interesting textures always make a stylish statement.

TO SIP...

Sachets of tea—how sweet that sounds. As a tea devotee myself, I can attest that Rishi's organic blends are some of the best—I carry their tea bags with me everywhere. A lovely drinking set makes the tea experience that much more elegant and refined.

JASMINE TEA, $9
