Crabtree & Evelyn Holiday Christmas 2012 Gift Guide

by Philippa Lane

Christmas is right around the corner and it is time to start thinking about the perfect gift for that special someone in your life.  I have a few gift ideas that may be of interest to you. 
Crabtree & Evelyn is a company that has been around for 35 years and was founded by John Evelyn- an Englishman who used fine, botanical ingredients to create a variety of exquisite home and beauty products.
I have always enjoyed the wonderful scents of Christmas.  The holiday season is filled with the aromas of warm apples, cinnamon, frankincense, myrrh, peppermint, and pine.  I love these fragrances to fill the air of my home especially during this time of year. 
I would like to share with you a few of my favorite seasonal products from Crabtree & Evelyn that add a special touch to the holiday season.

Golden Fig eau De Parfum (Rollerball): This is a wonderful parfum that comes in a 10 ml rollerball wand that is easy to apply to the wrists, ankles, and neck areas.  Made from fine essential oils such as- grapefruit, cedar, fresh figs, apples, gold and amber, white sandalwood, and mangosteen.  The fragrance is long lasting and because the rollerball container is small, it can be placed in a purse or tote bag.  Price: $16.00

Golden Petals eau De Parfum (Rollerball): This parfum is similar to Golden Fig, except that it is a sweeter scent made with musks, sugar crystals, florals, plums, and berries.  Price: $16.00

Golden Petals Silkening Body Nectar: The winter season can make my skin feel very dry at times and I usually need to use a good lotion to add moisture and eliminate dryness.  This body lotion is highly emollient and also adds a sparkly sheen to the skin because it contains tiny specks of glitter.  A very fun and festive treat for dry skin this holiday season.  Price: $20.00

Golden Fig Shimmering Body Mist: I love the fragrance of the Golden Fig Parfum, so of course I like the Golden Fig Shimmering Body Mist.  It comes in a 7.5ml spray bottle.  I can spray it on my arms, neck, and legs for a delicate shimmering effect with the beautiful, fresh scent of golden fig.  Price: $16.00

Red Sparkle Shimmer Lip Gloss: Your lips can sparkle and shine throughout the holiday season with this conditioning lip gloss that is super rich with moisturizing ingredients.  Available in three beautiful colors- pink glace, champagne frost, and red sparkle.  I have the Red Sparkle Shimmer Lip Gloss and it adds a lot of pizzazz to my lips.  It can be worn alone or on top of your favorite lipstick.  When I wear red lipstick, I like to apply the red shimmer lip gloss over it to enhance the color.   Price: $14.00

Home Fragrance Noel and Winter Garden Reed Diffusers: If you want your home to be filled with the distinctive scents of Christmas, then Crabtree & Evelyn Noel and Winter Garden Reed Diffusers are perfect choices.  Winter garden is made with essential oils of myrtle, apples, citrus, magnolia leaves, apricots, and amaryllis, while Noel is made with cranberry, nutmeg, apple, star anise, balsams, and clove.  Both fragrances are rich and inviting and evoke the aromas of the season.  Place the reeds in the fragrance filled bottle and in a few days take the reeds out of the bottle and put the dry area of the reeds into the fragrance, so that the fresh scent can fill the air again.  The fragrance lasts a long time.  Price: $40.00

Crabtree & Evelyn Noel and Winter Garden Home Fragrance Oil: I have many pod warmers that I put scented pods in as well as a variety of oils.  The Noel and Winter Garden fragrances are also available as oils and come in a 10 ml bottle.  I like both of the oils, but in my opinion, the fragrances are not as strong as I would like them to be. Everyone is different and if you do not like strong fragrances, than these home fragrance oils would probably work great for you.  Price: $9.00 each

I hope that I have given you some gift ideas for this Christmas season. Crabtree & Evelyn Products make great gifts for that special person in your life and can add a festive touch to your holiday celebration.
