2011Holiday Gift Guide – Suggestions For the Home
The smell of an evergreen tree…cookies baking…hot chocolate…baked ham…mulled cider…there are so many scents during the holidays that are tied to wonderful memories, fun times – or that just plain smell great. If you’d like to have those scents float through your home all year – or if you have other favorite smells you’d like to treat family and guests to – Scentsy is a great way to do that.
Stacy Mayo is an Independent Scentsy Director who loves her company’s products and the great opportunities with which those products provide her and her team. Scentsy products are wick-less and flame-less meaning no soot, no lead and no worry. Scents are created by placing wax bars in the dish of each ceramic warmer; the dish sets over a light bulb that slowly melts the wax, allowing the fragrance to be released. There are a number of fragrance collections with over 80 scents to choose from in all – everything from Baked Apple Pie to Christmas Cottage to Newborn Nursery.
Scentsy also has room sprays, travel tins, hanging scents for the car, solid perfume and the adorable Scentsy Buddies. The Buddies are sweet stuffed animals that safely hold a scent paks inside. If your little one has a favorite scent, he can take it with him wherever he goes via his Buddy.
We received a Farfalle warmer (along with a bar of Central Park Praline and a bar of Mochadoodle) that I love. We do a lot of earth tones so it fits in nicely. They have tons of different warmers to fit any decor, though, including collegiate designs (go UK!), cute Christmas warmers, smooth stone and “mod” collections and many others. You can also get plug in warmers that plug directly into the wall.
I really like both scents that we received, also. The Central Park Praline reminds me of the nut vendors in malls (YUM!) and mocha anything is high on my list (I love coffee). They both smell amazing – and both make me hungry! I’d also love to try the Ocean one – maybe in a plug in warmer in the bathroom for relaxing when I take a bath (it’ll probably be about 15 more years before a relaxing bath happens again, but hey).
Where to Buy:
You can purchase directly from Stacy’s website. Before you order I encourage you to take a second to email her about her current specials – she has great ones all the time! You could also ask her about hosting an online party so you can earn free and half-priced products. She’ll even do a basket party for you; she’ll send you a basket with all the items you’d need for a party, including a tester kit with all 80 fragrances! And she pays the shipping both ways.
