Homey Christmas gift ideas vary far and wide. If you just look around your own home you’ll likely get a number of ideas that jump out before too long. I’ve easily thought of a few of my own favorite homey Christmas gift ideas that I personally appreciate receiving at Christmas time while writing this introductory paragraph. A lot of them are just simple things that make me feel comfy with a sense of well being. Creating a feeling of warmth with homey gifts during the holiday season will assist with creating lasting memories for the person you’ve extended your homey gift to.
If you’re an essential oil freak like myself, chances are you have a number of your favorites. They are famous for creating a sense of comfort and hominess when their scents are filling the house by way of burning them in a special type of saucer made for this purpose. Or perhaps you are wearing a great scent in your hair or on your clothing. Either way, these are great for someone that’s already familiar with them, or for someone that isn’t. Even if your gift isn’t something that your loved one is familiar with, for whatever reason, essential oils are always a hit. They’re known for creating specific types of healing and wellness in varied ways by their own scents.
I think a large part of a homey feel is related to the fragrances and smells that surround you. The holidays are abundant with fragrances that are specific to the season so you don’t have to look far to be inspired or intrigued, or perhaps find yourself experiencing a big dose of nostalgia from a nearby scent. That’s what makes bath salts a great homey gift idea for holiday giving. The health food store I work in is always full of people throughout the aisle trying on fragrances and smelling scented bars, bath salts and oils. When they bring their heads up from the item, you can see their personal experience from the scent taking hold.
Another avenue for homey gift ideas is spices. Tied into fragrance again, this gift possesses the ability to not only take you somewhere with it’s scent, but create yummy food too. Making tasty holiday dishes that are plentiful with aroma and sustenance makes spices a great way to generate homey feel this Christmas.
Toiletries are not only available in great quantity everywhere, but depending on which product someone is using, whether it be shampoo, soap, lotion, or oil they can call up a great hominess within that sets a homey type of tone for the entire day.
