Practical Christmas gifts


Do you, like me, prefer to get practical gifts that are bought from local shops or from an Irish company online?

For example, Tisserand’s Gift of Sleep, is a limited-edition gift set that’s perfect for someone who can’t sleep. It contains Sleep Better Massage & Body Oil, Sleep Better Pillow Mist, and Sleep Better Pulse Point Roller Ball. This is how you use them, after a bath or shower massage the body oil into your skin. Spray the pillow mist over your pillow before hopping into bed. Once in bed, roll the roller ball onto the pulse points at the temples, neck, and wrists. Sound good? Over 89% fell asleep faster using this combination, the perfect practical gift.

You can’t go wrong with hand cream. I love Burt’s Bees gift set -Hand Cream Trio. The the creams are made with shea butter, a deeply nourishing cream with three different scents, including Lavender & Honey, Wild Rose &Berry, and Watermelon & Mint. A good size for the handbag too.

Or there’s Weleda Skin Food Nourish & Shine Gift Set which contains the popular Skin Food Original and Skin Food Light. They contain pure plant oils, protective waxes, and therapeutic plant extracts. They’re amazing, deeply nourishing for your face, body, lips, elbows, heels, any part of your body that feels like some extra hydration. For the man in your life there’s the Men’s Gift set. Start his day with this energising and uplifting set naturally scented with essential oils. It contains natural deodorant and Active Fresh Body Gel.

I love essential oils and you will be spoilt for choice with our selection of Tisserand gift packs. You can choose single oils for stocking fillers like Seasonal Joy with the beautiful scents of orange, nutmeg, and clove. Or the Festive Baking Collection with Festive Spice, Peppermint Spice, Gingerbread Cookies, to scent your home with festive scents that will transport you to your childhood memories of home baking. Or if you prefer, there’s the Magical Winter Collection it has several oils including Cedarwood and Pine.

Check out your local store or market for practical gift ideas this Christmas, you could be surprised at what you find. If you’re shopping online why not choose Irish Companies it’s a safer option too.
